Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Mocha Mirage Duo

28 Feb

Hello everyone! Another eyeshadow review today and this is of one of my favourite everyday eyeshadows to reach for.

Description: An everyday duo to just warm your eyes up. Coppery bronze shades is shimmery, and the melange of chocolate brown, light pink, natural pink, and bits of gold are swirled together to create a light brown with pink undertones.

Review: This duo is very pigmented, texture is very smooth and it is easy to blend the shades together. It was this duo that really got me started in mineral eye makeup (thus my recent MAC Mineralized eyeshadow purchases from Naturally). The packaging is a little bulky with it being a chunky box shape but it’s still easy to store. I just love the shades in this duo and I fear I do not use the pink/brown side as much. It still is a greatly loved product in my arsenal of makeup. Overall, I really love this and would love to purchase more shades.

Cost: $6-8CDN @ various drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would this duo is great as an everyday shade and I would definately repurchase if I didn’t already have like 4 other bronze shades to use.

Review: L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

28 Feb

Hello everyone! Sorry for a late night post today but hey it’s something super awesome!

Description: Smooth, creamy eyeshadow that won’t fade, crease and is waterproof. The shades purchased were Hourglass Beige (yellow based beige shimmer) and Forever Pink (light frosty pink with shimmer).

Review: These have been out in Canada for a while but I finally got around to picking them up and testing them out and I’m just going to say that I am impressed. I really like these for quick makeup days and also for days I spend more time of my makeup in the morning. I got two pretty much neutral shades but they are great for an everyday look I sometimes wear Forever Pink and some liner and call it a day it’s that simple and easy. I found that brushes don’t work well with this type of formula it’s a cross between a pressed pigment and loose pigment but feels like a cream eyeshadow (yeah it’s that smooth). A sponge-tip applicator or your finger works best using this. Pigmentation just blows you out of the park it’s really pigmented and there are now matte shades available in the line. It stays on for about 6-8 hours without primer and more than 8 hours when used with a primer. I’ve tested these in the shower and they stay on but if rubbed they will come off. The only quib I have is the packaging it just feels a little awkward to carry around with the square-like base and circle cap. Overall, this is a really great drugstore product I love that drugstores are really stepping up the makeup game.

Cost: $9-13 CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would they work really great and stay on forever! Definately would love to pick up more shades if they weren’t so expensive…
