Lip Gloss - Barry M - That's Swell! Plumping Lip Gloss

3.0

Does exactly what you want... except doesn't really plump! So it makes a decent clear lip gloss, nothing special but nothing wrong with it either! It has a kind of menthol-y fragrance which is probably to do with the supposed lip plumping action. Not massively keen on the scent but I can live with it (especially as it only cost a few quid).

The pigment of this palette is insane! Sometimes I'm mixing shades and I get the teeniweeniest bit to mix in and it's still too much colour! So yeah, a tiny bit goes a long way.
Super matte, can be a little bit drying on. I often mix shades with lip gloss or lip balm.

This is a perfect 'enhanced lip' shade. It's like your natural lip colour but better! It's in a neutral shade and will suit almost anybody. I'm cool toned and it looks great on me! I usually apply it on top of lip balm for a soft, glossy look, but you could easily layer it for a full opaque lipstick look. It's not quite matte, not quite shimmer. Somewhere in between.

It can be hard to find affordable all matte vegan palettes, and this is a ticks those boxes, but it is pretty average. There aren't enough cool tones here for me, really only the top centre, and small pan to left of black are cool. Pigmentation is decent for the price, but there is a LOT of fallout. I think I'll spend more money next time I need to replace this.

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

This is truly a matte foundation - to the point that it really shows any dry areas if I don't use a good primer underneath. However, on my non-dry area, it has a beautiful finish. I tend to use just a little bit to start off with and blend it in very thoroughly, then I'll carefully build up from there. That way I can make the most of the high pigmentation and texture, which, when …Read more

Loose Powders - RCMA Makeup - No Color Powder

I'm still getting to grips with using the right amount of this as I'm more used to pressed powders. That being said, when I get it right, this give me a lovely soft matte finish, and leaves zero white cast on my skin. But if I go in too heavy, I do get a powdery finish, particularly on my dry areas. The packaging is obviously pretty basic but if it keeps the price down, that's …Read more

I have actually bought 2 of these in case it gets discontinued! That's how much I love it. I bought it as an alternative to Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, which I reacted to, and I am SO pleased with the result. It compares very favourably to the Hourglass powder, and is a tiny fraction of the price. Plus, no allergic reaction! Automatic bonus. I tend to swipe all the shades together for …Read more

I would have given this product 5 stars if not for one thing - it made my face sting! I don't have particularly sensitive skin, it's combination (so my cheeks are a bit drier) but I reacted very negatively to this formulation. I was so looking forward to using it, but had to wash my face after 10 minutes because it was so sting-y. I tried again the next day using a different moisturiser …Read more

I have this brow pencil in shades 2, 4, and 6 and am happy with them... except that shade 4 (light grey brown) is metallic! I don't want metallic eyebrows! If only it were matte, it would be SUCH a use-able shade. All is not lost though, it makes a lovely soft taupe eyeliner, great for lower lashes.
The other 2 shades are fine - they go on quite lightly (i.e. the colour is not too …

For a vegan palette this is quite decent, but it's not remarkable. Although it has a good range of pretty and wearable colours, there is a lot of fallout. The pans are tiny, but as it's very cheap I can live with that. Pigmentation is good for the price. Overall, if repurchasing, I would spend a bit extra for better texture and pigmentation.
