Pros: Great price, very soft bristles, eco-friendly, short handles make it travel-friendly
Cons: some are too big, doesn't pick up colors well

I tested the brushes by using them to apply my super pigmented black eyeshadow, but it barely picked up any pigment! I also tried them again with various colors like hot pink, teal, red, taupe, and green... and I had the same results …

Lipstick - REVLON - Matte Lipstick - Nude Attitude

The color is great but the application is horrible! The color does not go on evenly at all, and it settles into all the lines on my lips. Such a shame too, since I have the lipstick in Pink Pout and that one doesn't have this issue.

I've been using this for a while, and I have to say that it's one of the staples in my makeup bag. The packaging isn't particularly eye catching nor does it have any delicious scent/flavor, but it works! It's inexpensive, lasts forever, and it has SPF! It also gives a nice finish on my lips. It's like a subtle gloss; not too shiny, but you can see a bit of shine. It …Read more

Yikes! I have very oily skin, and I had very high hopes for this moisturizer because it's Cetaphil. I paid about $14 for it, which is a bit expensive for a drugstore brand. This stuff made my face look greasier than it already is! It goes on pretty smooth and it feels nice, but as soon as I apply it, my face looks oily. The only good thing I can say about the product is that it didn't …Read more

I use this brush to apply my translucent oil control powder and it works well for my purposes. The bristles are extremely soft (seriously, it feels AMAZING on my face!) and I like that it comes with a reusable pouch.
The brush will not pick up much color if you plan on using powder or mineral foundations! It will give a very sheer look, so I wouldn't recommend this for someone who is …

I liked that this absorbed into my skin fairly quickly and that it made my face really soft. It smells like shampoo, not in a bad way, but it's kinda weird. The great thing about this is that it doesn't leave a white cast! There are so many sunscreens out there that leave my face looking pale and sickly, and this isn't one of them.
I'd say this is best for use in the …

If you have super dry, chapped lips like mine, stay away from this lip balm. The packaging is cute, it smells nice, and the ingredients are natural, BUT it's nowhere near moisturizing! I can put on fifteen layers of this balm and it feels like it's just sitting there on my lips. By the end of the day my lips are peeling (so not attractive!) and I just want to hide my face.

When I bought this, the lip balm inside was screwed up so every time I twisted it down, the balm would scrape against the container. I should've known then that this wasn't going to be the product for me. Like the Chapstick Moisturizing Lip Balm, it gave me weird milia-like bumps on my lips (I don't share cosmetics so I know it's not because of an infection or anything like …Read more

This is one of the worst products that I have ever used. I ran out of my usual lip balm (Blistex Medicated with SPF15 is my current HG lip balm) so I used this instead. It goes on thick and just sits on top of my lips; it doesn't absorb into my lips so I still feel like my lips are chapped.
That's not the worst thing about it though. I can deal with thick lip balms, but I simply …

This is the liquid eyeliner from Tsubasa Masuwaka's makeup line, and it comes in 2 colors: black & brown. I'll be reviewing the black one.
First off, this is a brush-type eyeliner and it's super easy to use. Just shake it a bit and line your eyes! It dries fairly quickly and is very pigmented. You can draw thick or thin lines, however, I can't draw very thick lines …
