Smudges like no other!
This has got to be one of the worst mascaras I have tried yet - it doesn't do a great job of volumising to start with and it smudges underneath my lower lash line for some reason very early on after application, casting a dark noticeable shadow under my eyes... attractive..? I think NOT!
Nice colours but crazy glittery fallout!
The colours are nice - it's definitely a great addition to a collection. But personally I don't reach for these on a daily basis (I reach for my nudes from Too Faced and UD Naked) but they are great accents every now and again. What I do not like about this palette is the fact that there are no matte shades and all of the glittery shades have incredible fallout. Today for example I had Snatch which is a beautiful peach shade in the palette however the glitter in that shade went everywhere and completely ruined my makeup for the day as I had glitter all over my face! So be incredibly careful when applying these shades as with all UD shadows and try to tap of excess and pat them onto a sticky base like a paint pot or cream shadow.
The concealer is AMAZING at covering redness!
I have acne on my chin area and I purchased this through recommendations. I have used this kit about 4 times thus far. I have to admit for the price ($85AUD at Kit Cosmetics) is a bit ridiculous as the foundation pot sizes are quite small (by the way why does the kit need to colours?!) I would have preferred one colour in the standard size. Because in order to get good coverage you really need to layer quite a bit and I feel it wont last very long. Plus, the main foundation brush that comes it is OMG awful - it sheds like crazy!
In saying that, I love the finish these products give my skin. It looks airbrushed, healthy and not overly made up which i've been liking!
The concealer is first class and the concealer brush that comes with it. They cover redness extremely well and don't cake over my acne which is amazing as most concealers I have tried in the past cake and flake the area.
Overall, I would definitely repurchase separate items from the kit - but not the kit as a whole.
If you have acne or dry skin - stay away!
Firstly i think i did get the wring shae for me which doesnt help (i bough NW20 but i think I should be NC20) but regardless of colour, the consistency is quite thick and extremely drying and if applied over blemishes that have come to a head (as disgusting as it sounds) then this just emphasises it ten-fold.
I might try this under my eyes instead and ill let you know how that goes with my dry under eyes.
Great colour payoff and so creamy!
This product is so creamy yet I feel it wears pretty good through the day (but I have no problem reapplying this). The colour is beautiful, do note that in Australia this shade is referred to as Peach Parfait - It's a great shade if you're scared of bright colours as this is more neutral than the brighter shades available but still gives a gorgeous colour.
will not repurchase.
I really wanted to like this product but honestly it doesnt to much at all for me and my oily eye lids. After a few hours at least post applying this as a eye shadow base, my eye makeup has creased!
Also, you need to keep shaking or massaging the tube before use, because if you dont then all you will get is oil and liquid - thus the product separates in the tube.
Overall, will not repurchase this product.
Gives a beautiful shimmer.
This product is creamy but does not slide off the lid. It has great longevity on the lid and provides a beautiful base for any colour over the top. It will give any matte shadow that's placed over the top of it a great dimension and lift. I have also used this product on its own for a dewy and/or natural look.
