Mascara -Make Up For Ever -Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Not a fan of this mascara at all. Brush shape/size is annoying but workable, however there's limited pay off to using it. Mascara barely shows up, even on longer lashes, and clumps them together unless you're very careful. But the ultimate "final straw" for me is that my eyes react poorly to it. I've got sensitive eyes and some brands are ok (Dior, Lancome), others aren't (Clinique). This made my lashes feel like straw and dried out my eyes terribly. It's so bad that my eyes are sore/itchy/dry for hours even after I take the mascara off. Total fail.



Bronzers -Make Up For Ever -Pro Bronze Fusion

I was hesitant to buy this because the reviews were very mixed with some people stating that it lacked pigmentation and it was difficult to apply with a regular brush. I am glad I caved in and decided to try it out for myself because it's the best bronzer I've ever used. It's hands down my favorite now and I reach for it everyday. This blows the other high end bronzer I have- Hourglass Radiant Bronze Light right out of the water.

For my complexion (NC42, golden undertones), I had the option of going for either the 30m or the 35i shade. The 30m has a neutral to cool undertone so it looked more suited to contouring which is not what I was after.

I decided to go for the 35i as I prefer its warmer, orange undertone. It has an iridescence to it which gives me a beautiful glow that looks natural. It doesn't get cakey and the formula is very build-able which makes it almost impossible to over apply. I use the same brush I always use with all my bronzers - Real Techniques Blush Brush and I've not had any issues with application.

It has a gel-powder hybrid formula so there's absolutely no fall out when you use it. Due to the formula, it has great lasting power. I typically have this on for at least 12 hours and I notice no fading by the end of the day. I absolutely will buy this again although I can't see myself running out of it any time soon.

Liquid -Make Up For Ever -Ultra HD Foundation

I've seen and heard alot of good things about this foundation, so I decided to give it a try. What would I say? Not only is it overhyped, it's actually fucking bad. Well, at least for me.

I have a medium to light neutral-warmish skin. I have to agree with everything with what harmony10 has said (you can read her review a few posts below), the colour selections are either too pale for cool shades, or too ashy and yellow for warm shades. I was really excited when I first discovered the huge range of colour selections but none of them seemed to work for me.

I tried really hard to like it initially given the price I have paid for, tried many different ways to apply this foundation, but nothing worked. It looked so blendable and beautiful when I first swatched it on my hand but when applied on my face, the finish looked so off and unhealthy. Yes, deadly is the word to describe the finish. I looked like as if I have malnutrition problem. It also accentuates textures, despite prepping with a mask and priming my face before it. And it felt tacky on my skin too. It was my first foundation back in 2016 and it gave me a really bad impression of what a foundation would look like on skin.

I haven't used it after trying all the solutions, and up till now it still looks new and unused in my drawer. lol. Such a waste of space.

If you really want to try, just get a sample and try first. Don't splurge for nothing. But I would straightly tell you to not waste your time on this foundation. There are many better and cheaper foundations out there.


Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever -Step 1 Skin Equalizer - Mattifying Primer

foto

I am not a fan of this product. For reference: I have combo/oily skin. Oily t-zone.

I purchased the travel size of this product and I’m glad I didn’t buy the full size. My go to mattifying primer is the Hourglass veil primer, but I wanted to try something new/cheaper.

This does nothing for me in terms of mattifying my skin. When I apply this to my t-zone, it leaves weird patches when I apply foundation over the area. I’ve tried patting or rubbing in the product and both attempts disappointed me.

Definitely would not repurchase.


Eye Shadow -Make Up For Ever -Artist Shadow D320 Golden Khaki (pre 2018 formula)

on 1/6/2018 12:23:00 PM

For some reason, Make Up For Ever has decided to replace ALL their Artist Shadows (which haven't been around all that long, to be honest) with a new formula called Artist COLOR Shadow (the caps are mine). The shade names and numbers are all the same but many of the shades are actually quite different from the originals. I figured if I wanted to get Golden Khaki in the "old formula", I would have to act fast so I picked this up last week. Sephora no longer seems to be offering the free empty holders with these (or the gals at my local Sephora were confused and ill-informed, which is entirely possible) so I took it without the holder they wanted to charge me for. This colour is lovely and much nicer than the new version, IMO (same holds true of Taupe Platinum and several other shades). The good thing about the "new" shadows is that they're in rectangular pans, so far more space efficient when you put them into Z palettes. I think the price per pan is also a few dollars less but, in all honesty, I really prefer the original colours to the new ones so was glad to get this lovely shadow that is exactly what the name suggests - a deep khaki bronze with a warm golden under-sheen to it. If you're on the fence, I'd strongly suggest grabbing one of these while they are still available (IF they are still available where you are) because this is a beautiful and versatile, flattering shade.
