Palettes - Juvia's Place - The Tribe Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

5 days ago

I was immediately drawn to this palette by its unique color scheme. At full price it is $20, but I managed to grab it on sale for $12. The best thing about this palette is definitely the metallic / shimmer eyeshadows. They are universally excellent: highly pigmented and highly reflective. One shade to specifically note is Koro, a duochrome. It looks like a metallic cream color, but it is more …Read more

Palettes - Strobe Cosmetics - Creepy Cute Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

I have been looking for a solid pastel palette for a long time and now I finally have it! This normally retails at $35, but I got on sale for $28. Even at full price I would say this is worth the investment. All of the shades are highly pigmented and blend beautifully. I have not been disappointed with any of the shades in this palette. Many of the pastel shades do have kick up (and fallout for …Read more

Brows - ColourPop - Brow Boss Pencil

I came across the Brow Boss Pencil when looking for an affordable replacement for my Anastasia Brow Wiz. At $5 for a pencil and with nine different shades, this fit the bill. The Colourpop website is very helpful with assisting customers in finding the right brow products and colors, so I ended up with the perfect shade for myself: Ash Brown. The pencil is retractable and comes with a spoolie on …Read more

17 days ago

I am always on the hunt for great liquid lipstick formulas and when Sugarpill released the High Tea collection, five nudes with a formula that was described as "lightweight" and "soft", I had to try it! The collection costs $90 ($18 for each individual lipstick) and has five nude lipsticks of differing shades: Dainty, Trifle, Crumpet, Clink!, and Duchess. They are all …Read more

Eyes - Ardell - Wispies

24 days ago

I had wanted to try false lashes for a long time and was recommended these. They are normally $4.99, but I managed to grab them on sale! I think these are perfect for natural looking falsies. They are more or less what I wish my lashes looked like naturally, being only slightly longer than my fairly long lashes, and definitely thicker. I had a slightly difficult time to get the band to stay flat …Read more

Eye Shadow - Sydney Grace - Danny's Dream Eyeshadow Bundle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

28 days ago

Danny's Dream is a 9-pan eyeshadow bundle with three shimmers and six mattes, almost all green shadows. These shadows were perfectly chosen and compliment each other for many amazing looks. The mattes are very pigmented and buildable, although the two darkest shades take a little more building than the others. A few of the mattes also have a little more kick up than others, but all of them …Read more

Eye Shadow - Sugarpill Cosmetics - Ghosted - Loose Eyeshadow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Ghosted is a beautiful white loose eyeshadow with a pink-purple shift. This eyeshadow is very easy to apply and does not require a glitter glue or a wet brush, although it is still probably best to do face makeup after applying it since it can have fallout. Ghosted is a fairly subtle loose shadow, which also helps make it an excellent highlighter or topper for other eyeshadows or on lipstick. The …Read more

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - On the Rise Volume Liftscara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I received a free sample of this mascara, which normally retails at $11. Not too bad of a price. The mascara layers nicely and feels very soft. The short, hard bristles on the applicator made it a very easy application. The only issue is that my lashes are so weak and straight that applying mascaras that are not waterproof will undo the curling. This mascara is no exception in that respect. If …Read more

Concealers - wet n wild - Photo Focus Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I purchased this concealer looking to try a cheap product after losing my old concealer. It costs $3.99 and actually has a shade that works with my very fair cool-neutral toned skin. I purchased the PhotoFocus Concealer in Fair Neutral and this shade works perfectly for me. It blends fabulously on my skin and it is medium coverage, which works for no-makeup looks and works without using …Read more

Bronzers - MILANI - Silky Matte Bronzing Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This was recommended to me as a good, affordable bronzer. This bronzer, which costs $9.99, performs even better than I had expected! It absolutely lives up to its name of being silky and matte. The product is so soft on my face and the shade I selected, Sun Kissed 02 (medium cool brown), is absolutely perfect for my very fair cool-neutral toned skin. The product is comfortable and holds up all …Read more
