Catherine B.'s (catherineb) Beauty Product Reviews
Quick and efficient!
This is such an amazing product - it removes the polish almost entirely fairly quickly (you may need to go into the corners with a q-tip though). Such a useful product, and it lasted me a few months, which, considering how often I remove polish, is pretty good. If only they sold this in Australia!
I was amazed at how good this product was, considering the price! It applies so easily, and stays on for hours (and products usually don't last that long on me). So impressed! Fantastic value for money, I just wish I was able to find these products in stores here.
Stella is described as “the blackest of jet blacks, bursting with rainbow diamond sparkle”, which is true - upon opening the jar, the rainbow sparkles jump out at you! Unfortunately, after a couple of hours wear, the rainbow sparkle dulls, leaving you with a primarily black shadow. I feel like if I’d put on another layer, this wouldn’t have been the case, but I didn’t want to go too black.
Stella, for me, looked best when swatched dry - perhaps it was simply my technique, but that’s something you’ll want to decide upon yourself.
Stella is a vegan-friendly shadow and cost $12US for 4.5 grams of product - trust me, a little goes a long way with this shadow, so it'll last a long time. Definitely good value for money in my opinion!
A fast favourite!
Weekender is described on the website as “metallic blue-violet with intense sparkle and sheen”, and they’re definitely right about the sparkle and sheen! The sparkle is fairly multicoloured, similar to Stella, though not as pronounced. The product also feels lovely when going onto your skin, which is an added bonus. I can tell this is going to be a shadow I wear regularly!
I found that Weekender looked better when swatched wet - perhaps it was simply my technique, but that’s something you’ll want to decide upon yourself.
Weekender is vegan and costs $12US for 5 grams of product - trust me, a little goes a long way with this shadow, so it'll last a long time. Definitely good value for money in my opinion!
