Shelby G.'s (ShelberryCupcake) Beauty Product Reviews
Not worth the $41 in my opinion...
I used a Sigma F80 to apply this foundation, & I did set it with a powder.
- Good pigmentation
- Good coverage
- Nice & creamy
- Easy to blend
- Can double as a concealer
- Clung to dry patches, making them stand out
- Got a little patchy/seems to break down as the day progressed
This is a good foundation, however it did not work as well for me as my drugstore Revlon Colorstay or my Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse, so I would not consider it worth the $41.
I have pictures & swatches on my beauty blog here:
Not a fan...
Definitely not my favorite moisturizer...I needed to apply it all over my face, but it always made me break out if I put it anywhere other than just around my mouth. It is also just not very moisturizing. My skin would feel tight & dry maybe 5 minutes after applying it, & I would constantly find myself having to apply it 3 or 4 more times!.
I am completely crazy about these lipsticks. They are so creamy, perfectly pigmented, & very long lasting. I also LOVE that they are matte, which is my favorite lipstick finish. I have 01, which is the perfect deep red & looks great with my very fair complexion, & I also have 08, which is a gorgeous pink-nude color. They are my favorite lipsticks out of my whole collection.
Finally found my Holy Grail mascara(:
We all know it takes FOREVER to find that perfect mascara, & this is definitely mine. It's large, curved brush grabs & coats all my lashes perfectly. It's waterproof formula holds my curl all day long (which is amazing, my lashes are nearly impossible to curl let alone stay that way for long periods of time). I will ALWAYS repurchase this mascara.
My favorite lip balm(:
I used to use the Burts Bees lip balms, but decided to venture out & try EOS because of the cute & unique design, & also because of the great ingredients. I started with just the summerfruits, & have since bought sweet mint, strawberry, & passionfruit. This lip balm is great under lip color products, because it is moisturizing, but it is not greasy & lip color products really adhere to it, where as they usually just slip off after a few minutes with other lip balms.
I did try going back to my Burts Bees lip balm, just to test whether EOS really was more moisturizing. Came to find my lips are significantly more dry & flaky when using any lip balm other than EOS, I cannot live without it.
