Olivia M.'s Beauty Product Reviews
Good, but not the best.
One of the main brands I use. I love the formulation, the brush, and the opacity of most of the polishes aren't too heavy. Very easy to work with. However, the staying power of Essie is not spectacular. I find it chipping within a day or two (with base and top coat). I can find cheaper polishes that do a better job.
Good for $3 bucks.
I really like this eyeliner but I always stray away from it. The color payoff is insane, the black is super intense! It stays on ALL DAY. No creases, no fading, no nothing. But the reason I dislike this product is because the eyeliner dries out after a good three weeks. Then once it's dried out, it begins to tuck on my lids when I'm using it. (Not acceptable!) I know it's only $3 but I don't want to have to worry about buying a new one all the time. That's the only reason I don't use this anymore.
Good for beginners.
When I first got into eyeshadows, this was my go-to. But after I moved onto higher end makeup, I realized this pallete was not that great. The pigmentation is decent, and you can pack on the shadows. Comes with a wonderful variety so you can do all types of looks. But, these shadows are very chalky which causes a lot of fall out. The packaging is also poorly made.
Not perfect, but worth it.
The darkest color is not INTENSE black. More like a dark gray. But it can be built upon to be a dark black. Lasts all day, comes with a great brush, and when you find it on sale at the drugstore, you can't beat the price. I've tried the Wet 'N Wild Creme Eyeliner but it didn't compare to this one. I use this daily. My only gripe, is that when it's really hot/humid outside, I get a bit of a line from the eyeliner rubbing off in my crease.
All about the packaging.
When I saw this odd shaped lotion, I immediately fell in love with it. I just love the color and the shape. However, the lotion is not amazing. Does the job, but for what I paid, I expected it to be much more moisturizing. Also, the scent is nothing special. Smells like a regular lotion. I would buy again simply because I love how the product looks.
Good, but not perfect.
I love this lip balm. It's cute, comes in pleasant scents, and does an excellent job at moisturizing my lips. This is one of the best lip balms I have used so far. It stays on my lips for a fairly long time, and the product lasts me for a good 2+ weeks. The only downside to these is the scent becomes.. well, "unpleasant" after awhile. But that might just be me.
