Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Bamboo Buffing Brush

3.0

I bought this after the repackaging, which also renamed it "custom coverage" or something similar (lost the name cardboard ;x), but it's the same brush.

Well made, soft bristles, washed it a couple of times and no shedding, sturdy handle. Decently dense, but I gave it a low rating because it doesn't have very much use. It's a little too small to buff powder …

Polishes - Barry M - Nail Paint

I bought a Nail Paint in Blue Moon (a light, sky blue), which is a gorgeous colour. The application was okay, thin but not too watery. However, the polish is just so SHEER! I had to apply 3 coats, the third of which was super super thick, and even then the colour isn't completely opaque or even. Was this colour meant to be sheer? That would be the only explanation, but I couldn't find …Read more

Eyeliner - Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - Black

I bought this and the mascara as a mini duo, and at first I liked this well enough. The application was great, and the tip is nice and resilient without being too stiff. However, the formula isn't amazing and smudge easily. The pen dried out easily too; I didn't even get to use it that many times.

For the price, not impressed!

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Domed Bronzer Brush

5.0

Awesome brush! I don't use it for bronzer, since I mostly just contour and I'd need a smaller brush for that, but I use this with mineral/powder foundation, which works great. I like brushes that have darker ends so I can see how much powder I pick up, which is one does. It's super soft and quite dense, so it buffs easily. I've washed it 20+ times now, and I haven't seen …Read more

I have this Honey, which is a light/medium with pink undertones, which works well with dark circles. Since it's so expensive, I use this only on my dark circles. Covers well and blends easily since it's not super thick, but it ends up looking cakey and dry by the end of the day with a powder on top. With no powder, it looks pretty good still, but I like to set it lightly since I use a …Read more

Liquid - benefit Cosmetics - Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation

I have this in "I'm So Money, Honey", which is a good fit for my NC30 skin. I like that it has a pump, but that's about all I like. A super watery formula that's more light coverage than medium, though it can be built up a bit. It covers redness around my nose okay, but it doesn't cover dark circles or acne scars. Looks pretty good over my pores, but has horrible oil …Read more

Powder - KORRES Natural Products - Multivitamin Compact Powder

3.0

Aug/07/2013

I think I have this product, though mine is white plastic instead of black. The powder works well enough, but it doesn't really control oil very well, but makes my undereyes look dry and cakey at the same time. I have oily skill all over, and normal undereyes (but oily lids, it's a gift). This is a light coverage powder that probably would work well as a finishing powder, but I use it …Read more

Lips - RIMMEL - Apocalips Lip Lacquer

Aug/07/2013

Amazing product! It's almost like a liquid lipstick that's about as shiny as a gloss. I have this in four shades, Celestial (dusty rose), Nova (soft pink), Apocalyptic (bright, neon pink), and Big Bang (almost a true red, but a bit lighter/on the orangey side). They all look great, last forever, are amazingly pigmented, and doesn't feel drying or sticky after the initial setting …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter (All Shades) [DISCONTINUED]

Aug/07/2013

I have mixed feelings about this product--a lot of the pinker/lighter colours don't show up on my lips at all, but the darker/redder ones look and feel amazing. I have this in 5 colours; in increasing darkness, I have Sugar Frosting, Cotton Candy, Strawberry Shortcake (all three are lightish pink), Raspberry Pie, and Fig Jam. Out of the five, I regret purchasing three of them. Sugar Frosting …Read more

Mascara - Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Mascara

Aug/07/2013

Haaate this with a passion! The formula is super wet and the tube does a very bad job of cleaning off the excess, so a ton of formula just gloops all over my lashes and glues them all into maybe five giant spider legs. Actually, not even spider legs--this didn't give much length or volume, and didn't hold my curl at all due to the wetness. It is very waterproof though, but it's …Read more
