For me, this brush was kind of awful. I'm a bit of an eyeliner connoisseur, but this made it near impossible to get a consistent line. It picked up way too much product, and then when excess was dabbed off there was too little and the line was patchy. The silicone also dragged the skin on my eyelids a lot. I initially tried it with gel eyeliner and was unimpressed, so I tried it with liquid …Read more

Nothing beats this brow kit when it comes to value for money. The two pigmented shades are easy to mix or do an ombre brow (if you're into that), making it suit a lot of natural brow colours. It's also buildable, making it easy to achieve natural or strong brows. I use my own angled brush to apply this rather than the tiny one provided and it works perfectly. The packaging leaves a lot …Read more

I am awful at using dip eyeliners and have tried most budget/mid range felt tip eyeliners. This liner is close to perfect. The ink is jet black, flows easily and hasn't dried up as of two months after purchase. The nib is not too small but not too big, making it perfect for my purpose - I usually do a full on cat eye with the tiny inner corner flick as well as the traditional outer corner …Read more

I really like this liner. The packaging is simple but classy, and I appreciated that it came in a cardboard box for extra hygiene. I am useless at using dip eyeliners with brushes, so felt tip pens like this are my go to. The nib of this is quite big circumference wise, so it's best for applying medium to thick eyeliner. It has a nice flexibility - not too stiff but not too bendy, making …Read more

Lip Liners - RIMMEL - 1000 Kisses Stay on Lip Liner - Cappuccino

I'm not sure about this product. I bought it to wear under pink lipstick to make them appear more nude. While the colour of this liner does what I want, I'm not a fan of the consistency. It seems unusually hard for a lip liner and so it makes it difficult to get a uniform colour - it comes out a bit streaky. It doesn't really blend or sit well either. I can work with it and make it …Read more

I bought this in the waterproof version as other formulas just don't hold a curl for me. This holds a curl for hours, doesn't smudge under my eyes, and adds volume. I will say that it's very easy to get spider lashes with this, but that's easily remedied by going through with a clean spoolie. It is very waterproof and so a little harder to take off, but it's not nearly as …Read more

This lip liner is amazing. I bought this in the shade Upper Brown Side, which is a brownish pink (think Kylie Jenner lip colour) when I was looking for a kind of 90s inspired brown lip colour. I got this along with a more expensive one, and I can safely say that I prefer this one. The pencil is creamy and feels very comfortable on the lips. I used this on it's own all over the lips - …Read more

I don't say this lightly, but I hated this liner. Sure the packaging is cute, it has a nice length brush and it's cheap as hell, but that's about it for me. The brush/sponge had no flexibility at all and did not work with the way I apply eyeliner, making a smooth line difficult if not impossible for me to achieve. As for the formula itself, it was very pigmented. I would classify …Read more

This is my favourite brush for blending liquid. I use it just for my concealer as I find it gives too much coverage if I use it for my mineral foundation. This blends like nothing I've ever used before. It gets into all the corners including around the nose - which I always found difficult before this brush - and it leaves no discernable brush marks. I've used brushes that just take …Read more

I had this in the red shade, and I had such high hopes. The coverage was sheer at best and slid off if you even looked at it funny. I had two for some reason, and I disliked both of them. The packaging was kind of shoddy too. The lids kept falling off and eventually broke. One of them also melted at room temperature. I wanted to love this, but I guess I just got a cursed batch.
