Sara D.'s (makeup_obsessed) Beauty Product Reviews
I got this product in the Sephora Favourites Box around the Holiday's! It was one of the first felt tip liners that I have tried and I found that It had helped me perfect my application of this type of liner. It also stayed on all day without smudging and was really pigmented. I took a star off because it seemed to dry up fast for me and only lasted maybe a month and a half. I'm not sure if that's the usual amount of time you can get out of these but I would like it to last a bit longer for the price.
I have Perky and Pucker. These flipsticks are amazing!! My friend and I decided to try these after seeing a commercial and I went back to get another one. They are so pigmented and after 8 hours, I still saw colour on my lips and it didn't completely wear off. Even after drinking water and eating, I still saw pigmentation so you don't have to keep reapplying and considering each stick has 2 shades, you can't go wrong.
A MUST BUY!
I am IN LOVE with these lipsticks. they are soo pigmented and so creamy and go on so nicely. I have shades 01, 02, and 03. and I've already bought a backup of 03. it's so pretty. I'll definitely be picking up a few more of these shades and hope they aren't going to be discontinuing them anytime soon.
I had so much hope for a cheap option for a bright shadow but I've swatched many of them in stores and they look nothing like what they do in the pan. I've also found some of them very chalky and I would rather spend more money on a single eyeshadow from another brand and have them look like they do in the pan.
Good and Bad.
I find that this liner is easier to use than your average liquid liner and is really dark. The only downfall is that it dried out too fast for me. It seems that I had only used it around 4 times and the colour started fading. It started to look like an actual colour marker that was running out and I don't know if it was because I was storing/using it wrong or if I just got a bad batch.
I don't have the full palette but I have 3 of the shadows from it. (the purple and the bright pink, and the bright orange)
These shadows are SUPER PIGMENTED!!! If you want bright bold colours, this is for you!!
The only downfall is that it may be too pigmented because once I take the pink off, there is some staining on my lid, but that fades through the night and if your applying different shadow in the morning, you won't be able to notice it.
Definitely a great palette if you're looking for a starting kit of bright colours or if you just need more variety :)
Takes time to get used to
Once you figure out how to get the fill design to transfer onto your nail, it's a great product. When I first got it, it frustrated me to no end but then I finally got it and now I want to use it all the time.
Patience is key with this product and if it doesn't work the first couple times, try it a different way and you will eventually get the hang of it. :)
I bought this palette a few weeks ago and the colours are absolutely gorgeous!! Perfect for anytime of the year and the brush is a fairly good quality as well. The packaging is pretty nice too and is small enough to take with you on vacation.
To me, this palette is amazing for it's price. In Canada it was only $55 and honestly thought it would be more considering it was Smashbox and it contained 9 shadows, 2 liners, a brush and a primer.
I would highly recommend this palette!! :D
