Tamara R.'s (beautythesis) Beauty Product Reviews
My new favourite blush!
I picked up Tipsy because of the fantastic colour, but I was curious about how the clay element would actually perform.
My cheeks still get shiny, but the colour stays true throughout the day and it doesn't budge. I feel like the price is a bit steep for blush, but the quality is absolutely solid and I love all the 'good stuff' Tarte includes in their products.
If you can find a colour that you would wear regularly, I think it's worthwhile checking out. Highly recommend checking out.
This foundation range is the only one where I've actually found a great match. It photographs beautifully and applies very easily. I'd love it if they made it in a transfer resistant formula as well.
My only real problem with it is the price. It's worth it, but it's still a lot for a professional brand IMO.
I picked up two of these in a Make Up For Ever set from Sephora and I think they do a great job. Definitely hold up over the course of the day, no smudging or creasing. I'd love to see some cream/non-shimmer shades though.
These aren't the best brushes ever, but they are much nicer than anything else I've ever seen in their price range. I've got two sets, and they've held up pretty well over 2 years and 1 year respectively. The powder brush is by far by favourite, but I also really like the concealer, blush and angled brushes too.
Definitely would recommend for beginners, or those looking to fill out their brush collection/kit.
When I first got this I expected the primer it to crease because it's so creamy. It got tossed into a drawer and forgotten about until about 6 months ago. Even in the humid summer I got a good 5-6 hours of wear before it started to crease, which more than enough for a night out.
I don't use the sealer, but when I tested it there was no smudging on my hand.
I have three of these brushes now because I like them so much. For $3 they are an absolutely steal. I use them with liquid foundation and powders as well as for blending.
I had one that came apart after about a year, but for $3 I can't say I'm mad about it. I just used some crazy glue and put the handle back into the ferrule, and no problems. :]
Love Milk.. others, not so much.
I picked up a few of these quite a while back and found myself really disappointed with how they creased. Recently though, I finally tried Milk and while it does need a base underneath I cannot believe how much it ramps up the pigmentation in loose & pressed shadows. Definitely a fan of Milk! :D
