There are literally no reviews or swatches on these so I pretty much blind bought it. I had anticipated wearing it alone, however once I received the item I realized that wearing it alone requires special application. The product is super thin and liquid like. It goes on really wet but dries down. You really have to let these dry before doing anything.

For this reason when applying it …

I was really excited to try these. I love the packaging and I think the brand's aesthetic is so on point. I'm not really a gloss person, mainly lipstick, BUT, after trying Fenty Glossbomb, Ive been more likely to pick up a gloss or 2 here or there.
There aren't many review on this product period, but the few that there are are all good so I decided to go ahead and try. I mean …

First off, if you don't like glitter, you will NOT like these.

However, if you LOVE glitter, you will LOVE these balms.

I have these in a few shades. To be fair, they're mainly just a glitter balm. All of the shades are mainly glitter and not much pigment on the lips, aside from Pink Frost which actually is more pigment (albeit sheer) and not as much glitter as the …

I bought into the hype and picked up Fenty Glow and Fussy. I'm normally not a lip gloss person and prefer lipsticks.

The packaging is adorable and I love how large and plush the brush is. The gloss itself has a strong fruity smell, almost like fruit punch but it doesn't taste like anything.

The formula is not too thick but not too thin. Both shades look similar on …

Wow, I was NOT expecting to like these. I am not really big on lip gloss toppers anyways, so I mainly got them to use as a gloss. I didn't have high hopes, but they are only $1!!! But let me tell you, I would pay more for these. They work fine as a gloss and they look beautiful!!! Definitely reminds me of those days I used to love glitter in my lipglosses. They're actually vetry …Read more

You can buy these brushes all together or separately in sets of 2 with a face brush and a smaller similarly shaped eye brush. I am reviewing the F4 and E104 brushes found in this brush set but sold separately together.

In general, AOA brushes work well for their price. In fact, the only issue I had with any of their brushes was when using liquid product. I also had this issue with a …

This powder takes some time getting used to. Graftobian is one of those brands that is mainly used by the "industry" heads rather than your general makeup lover.

With that being said, this does have talc which I can imagine holds up better under the heat of bright lights, but the tradoff is that it does have a "powdered" look. However, it is superior as far as oil …

I usually love AOA but this powder is a dud. It's a lot smaller than I expected but that doesn't bother me.

This style og powder doesn't have any glitter in it but be aware because they have a "Translucent" version only and it does have a glitter effect.

On my NC47 skin, it does blend in translucent, but I don't how well it would look on …

I have these in 3 shades. Princess Cut, Bali and Rude Gyal. The darker shades are basically lipsticks they're so pigmented and the lighter shades give more of a hint of color. Great for dewy, luminescent summer makeup.They are a thick formula and can be "goopy" but they're super moisturizing and thick and the darker shades STAY pigmented the whole time.They have a light scent …Read more

This is an indie Black owned brand and the owner makes everything herself. These highlighters are TO DIE FOR!!! They're super pigmented, creamy and can be applied with a brush or your hands. They are beautiful and have a color for every skin tone. I highly suggest you try these! I have Goddess Olivia and Heir and they're both beautiful shades!
