Beauty Product Reviews
This eyeliner is great. It has a very creamy consistency, which makes it perfect for smudging or as a base. It does tend to run when used on the waterline by itself, but eyeliner on the waterline usually needs to be re-applied frequently anyways. I set it with an eye shadow which extends the period of time I can go without re-applying (I usually only re-apply once with this method). On the upper lash line, I find that this product lasts all day after being set with an eye shadow.
This is definitely my "go-to" eyeliner. I have repurchased this product many times over the last couple of years.
I have this mascara in Glam Brown, and I love it! It has a very wet and sticky formula, which I usually don't like, but this mascara makes my lashes look amazing! It adds a good amount of length (which I don't really need, but whatever) and a great amount of volume. It separates the lashes nicely as well. This mascara will clump if you don't take your time and carefully apply it.
The wand is okay, it isn't my favorite. It's kind of difficult to get the inner and outer corners of my lashes, but like I said, if I take my time and apply carefully my lashes look flawless in the end. :)
This product is very VERY good. It definitely keeps my eyeshadows from creasing, and keeps them lasting all day. The only reason I don't give this product five stars is because there are several primers from the drugstore that work just as well for a lot cheaper.
I have a very love/hate relationship with this eyeliner. I do not like lining my lids with it at all. It is very very dark, which I like a lot, but it has a very dry formula. It doesn't go on very smoothly and is very hard to work with. It kind of "skips" or "cracks" (it doesn't make a smooth or crisp line). But, I do LOVE applying this eyeliner on my waterline! It is very dark and stays on all day.
Best $50 I've spent on a beauty product!
When I first saw this palette I was not impressed at all. The colors are easily dupe-able (I have found perfect dupes for the colors in some Maybelline quads, and in the ELF 32 eyeshadow palette), but after swatching the shadows I instantly fell in love and had to order this palette. The color payoff/pigmentation of the shadows is absolutely amazing, and they blend perfectly.
I have a couple of disappointments that don't have anything to do with the palette, though. First, the palette comes with a travel size of the Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I was extremely disappointed in this product. It works great, don't get me wrong. My eyeshadows don't crease if I put this on before I apply any shadow, and they do appear more vibrant over this prodict... but it isn't anything special. I have a L'Oreal primer that works exactly the same as this does. Secondly, instead of the double ended eyeliner, my palette came with the Good Karma eyeshadow brush. This brush is also nothing special. I'm not that fond of it, and I never use it. I find myself using my Ecotools eyeshadow brush every time.
But, it's not like you're paying for those products, and I still think this palette is well worth the money!
I absolutely adore this mascara! It separates my lashes beautifully, and I find that it doesn't clump at all. It doesn't add a lot of length, but my lashes are naturally long anyways, so I usually stray away from lengthening mascaras. Also, this mascara isn't very voluminous either. It's good for separation, and looks very natural on the lashes.
I also love the wand. It has kind of a tapered shape, which makes it easier to apply to the inner and outer corners of your lashes.
