Katie N.'s (behindh3rsmile) Beauty Product Reviews
Such a great base!
I love this as a base for my eyeshadows when I want to do a darker eye (Skinny Jeans). It is crease-proof and fade-proof which is why I like it so much! It's easy to blend and apply before it sets, and when it sets it's really pretty to wear by itself or with an eyeshadow on top. I highly recommend this because it's so long wearing!!!!
This was also my second brush from MAC and I really like it! It's simple to use and applies beautifully. I haven't had problems cleaning it or having it shed on me. It is however, a bit bigger than I would've liked because I have small eyes; but other than that it's probably one of my favorite brushes ever!
The only palette you'll need
It has a great variety of shades and finishes that it's amazing for any day. I tell everyone that this palette is the best palette you can get and it's worth the price! Being a student, this palette gets the most loving for everyday makeup. I would recommend this to everyone!
Moisturizing and pretty when on lips, but...
They dried my lips after awhile and when I wipe it off. I loveeee the Super Lustrous lipsticks though, but the ColorBurst ones aren't too bad. It applies evenly on the lips, the packaging is beautiful, there's a decent range in colours... but I personally think it's too expensive for a drugstore lipstick (especially in Canada!)
I have a review on these from awhile back here, plus swatches!:
Not one of my favorite blushes...
I really like Benefit Cosmetics and this blush was one of my first products from them. At first, I really did like it but the smell was very strong and overwhelming. I thought over time the smell would fade away but it eventually became really irritating. However it is a beautiful colour and it lasts on the cheeks for a long time; but it was too shimmery for my liking. I ended up giving this blush away to someone with a not-so-oily complexion.
