Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Epic Ink Liner

4.0

10 days ago

I grabbed this eyeliner for $9 at Ulta, looking for an easy liquid liner to work with. This one is fantastic. The tip is neither too stiff, nor too flexible. It can actually work to make fairly thin lines for those who do not want thick liner or huge wings. The eyeliner is very pigmented and not watery at all. It also held up without coming off at all over an average day of wear. I found this …Read more

Palettes - Blush Tribe - Laila 2 Eyeshadow Palette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

22 days ago

I have been a fan of Blush Tribe for awhile now and also on a green palette kick this year. When I saw this palette announced I knew I had to have it! It is reasonably priced at £23.99 (about $32). Firstly, the color scheme of the palette is stunning for anyone who wants a good green and yellow palette. Unfortunately, that is probably one of the few pros of this palette. From prior experience …Read more

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

22 days ago

I decided to give this mascara a try after hearing so many positive things about it. At $4.99 for a tube (which is huge, but pretty neat looking packaging), you can't beat the price. The first things I noted on opening the tube were that the mascara had no smell and the applicator is fairly skinny with short bristles. The bristles seem too soft to be of any real use with a formula as wet as …Read more

Eye Shadow - Sugarpill Cosmetics - Pressed Eyeshadow - Buttercupcake

5.0
Created with Sketch.

23 days ago

After ages of wanting to try a bright yellow eyeshadow I finally purchased one! Buttercupcake costs $10 for a large pan (or $13 in a compact). I have tried a few yellow shadows this year and this one is definitely the best! The eyeshadow is highly pigmented and easy to blend. Over regular primer (no set base) it took a little building up for full opacity, but the color is very vibrant. If you …Read more

Palettes - Juvia's Place - The Tribe Eyeshadow Palette

3.0

1 month 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

1 month 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

1 month ago

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

Lipstick - Sugarpill Cosmetics - High Tea Liquid Lip Color

5.0

1 month 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

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months 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.

2 months 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
