Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Meet Matt(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette

I’m so glad I did not pay full price to try this palette! It’s so bad that I wouldn’t want to give it to anyone else to try. The eyeshadows feel so dry and powdery. Upon application, the shadows are chalky and do not blend at all, really patchy. The worst part is that the colors fade away so easily, not worth the effort. Please save your money and avoid this palette, there are so many better …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Japonesque - Cut Crease

I find that this brush is a nice alternative to the Mac 217 brush. It is a little more tapered than the Mac 217. It is tightly packed at the ferrule so it doesn’t splay and move too much that the blending gets out of control. Because it is tightly packed yet also tapered, the part that has movement is the tip of the soft bristles so there’s good control to pack on colors and blend. I would highly …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Japonesque - Angled Brow Definer #240

I used to use the Smashbox brow brush #12, but it was thick so it was hard to be clean and precise. I then tried the Japonesque brow brush and my first impression was that it was similar to the Mac 208 brush. The Japonesque brush is a little thicker than the Mac 208. I like the firmness of this brush to apply brow powder, but I can’t use this brush to do the tapered end of my brows.

I’ve tried some samples and they feel very drying. After I’ve set the foundation with powder, the foundation does break down around my smile lines and looks dry and patchy especially around my mouth and chin.

I’m NC25 and shade 3 matches me the best. However, it does not have good pigmentation so it fades once blended out and disappears within a couple hours. It also feels dry and accentuates lines under my eyes.

I’ve tried the colors Centerfold, Bobbi, Maiden, and Birthday Suit. Bobbi and Maiden did not look good with my NC25 skintone. Centerfold washed me out. Birthday Suit was a nice warm brown shade for the fall. I appreciate the formula which doesn’t dry out my lips. However, I wouldn’t repurchase because it feels like it’s just sitting on my lips and makes my lips feel almost raw. The formula is …Read more

I am NC25 and this blush brightens up my complexion with a hint of pale pink. It blends out effortlessly so it’s perfect on days I am in a rush. I just don’t like the packaging, and I won’t be repurchasing because there are parabens in the ingredients.

This is a nice warm pink blush with some shimmer. The powder feels very soft so a brush easily picks up the product. It’s easy to blend out but I would recommend a duo fiber brush to apply and build up.

I purchased this to brighten my undereyes and this looked a little grey once it was blended in. Plus, this powder made my undereyes look dry and accentuated the fine lines. Now I use this as a wash over my eyelids to even out the skin tone before eyeshadows.

I live in a very humid place and this foundation does not work at all. It is very moisturizing so it never feels like it sets, doesn’t last long, just makes my skin look shiny throughout the day.
