Cassandra M.'s (CassandraMakeup) Beauty Product Reviews
I purchased the Ombre Blush in Azalea Blossom when it was recently re-promoted. I wanted it forever and I was extremely disappointed when I got it. It was gorgeous, but it literally had NO pigmentation or color pay off what so ever. No matter how much I tried to pack on, it didn't show up. Completely crappy product.
This is another really great product by Organix. I have split ends and damaged hair and it doesn't actually repair split ends, but it sort of binds them together and makes the ends of my hair look smooth and healthy. It is thick and heavy so if you have thin hair it may make your hair weighed down or greasy. But overall it works great for my hair type and I love it!
great for teasing hair
This is a great, strong hold hairspray. It works amazingly for teasing your hair, or holding a style in place all day long. It is extremely strong but it doesn't make your hair look or feel super crunchy and stiff, and I haven't noticed it flake throughout the day. I would not recommend this as an everyday hairspray just to spritz fly away hairs and such with, it's definitely a better hair spray for styling your hair and keeping it in place!
best mascara I've ever used!
I finally tried out this mascara and it is honestly the best mascara I've ever used! I am a huge fan of the Covergirl Lash Blast & Revlon Grow Luscious (I usually layer the 2 together), but this mascara achieves the same volume, length and effect the 2 mascaras I used to use would give my lashes, but in one mascara! It has a rubber brush which I personally love, it coats my lashes perfectly and gives the perfect amount of volume and length and also separates my lashes amazingly. I think this is a great mascara, I will definitely be repurchasing it and using it for a very long time :)
ADORE THIS BRUSH!
I absolutely LOVE this stippling brush. It's great quality and inexpensive, and not to mention the metallic pink handle makes it 100x more appealing too :) I love this for foundation especially. It works amazingly since it is short and dense, it blends out my makeup flawlessly every time. I can't say enough good things about it, I think this is a must have brush for everyone, I don't see how anybody could possibly dislike it ! :)
I am a huge fan of the Samantha Chapman brushes, I have a few of them and this blush brush was my most recent one. I am the least impressed with this brush, I personally find it doesn't work well for applying blush at all. I thought it would be amazing considering the shape of the bristles and the quality of the other brushes from this line I have tried, but this one just doesn't pick up any product or apply it. It's still a great brush but it doesn't work for it's main purpose, which is blush. I was very disappointed, but this brush can still be used for other purposes so it's not a horrible product :)
Best drugstore face powder!
I purchased this while I was at the drugstore just because I had ran out of my MAC mineralized skinfinish natural and I needed something to hold me over until I could repurchase another one. I have never found a drugstore face powder that worked well for me...until I stumbled upon this one! It glides on smooth and lightly, yet it gives a completely flawless and matte finish to my face. It doesn't get cakey at all and it keeps my face matte much longer than any other face powder ever has. I LOVE THIS STUFF. I will never buy a MAC msf again, when I can have this for only $4-5 :)
I finally got my hands on some of these Wet N Wild color icon eyeshadows, I heard a ton of great things about them online. They are extremely pigmented and smooth, and they have a good variety of colors. They're also extremely cheap which is great :) I really do love these and I want to purchase every color there is!
Great product :)
Revlon is probably one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands, I think a lot of their products are great quality, including these new lip butters. I heard a lot of hype about them on youtube, and I just had to try them out for myself. So far I only have the shade Cupcake, which is a bright bubblegum pink. It's not as pigmented as a lipstick, but it's more than just a tinted lip balm. It's perfect for giving your lips a gorgeous pink pop but without looking too bright and un-wearable. The only thing that bugs me is how quickly they wear off, since they are "lip butters" they aren't very long wearing, which is pretty annoying. But overall I love these and can't wait to purchase more shades!
