Empties: February 2014

5 Mar

Hello everyone! So I haven’t been updating my blog lately… and that’s because school has been really hectic. I had a lot of assignments and papers and I just finished my midterms yay! But I hope to get back in the swing of things and whatnot but of course I must do the obligatory empties and I have a few more things this month too. As you know I haven’t been purchasing beauty products for the past two months so my stash has been decreasing which is awesome (look I finished another blush!) so without further ado here are the empties for the month of February.

Review: ELF Essential Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick

6 Feb

Hello everyone! Man, I feel like I am on a roll with reviews lately… either that or it’s just me. Anyways, let’s get on with this review.

IMG_2385 IMG_2387 IMG_2389

Description: Shades – Little Miss Thing: light shimmery champagne, Rock Out: metallic silver taupe, Forest Nymph: dark brown with green shimmer, Turkish Coffee: chocolate bronze shimmer

Review: I have been really liking cream eye shadow pencils lately they are easy to use and I don’t have to worry about contaminating a whole pot of eye shadow. These are very pretty as you can tell from the swatch very pretty and I like using them as bases and as eye shadows themselves. As a base they last 6-8 hours with a little bit of fading and by themselves they last 4-6 hours with creasing. I find that a thin layer works best and any thicker it will crease even faster. They are pigmented so one swipe is all it takes for a beautiful eye shadow look.  Overall, great products and I would highly recommend them.

Cost: $2USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? They are a lovely addition to my collection and are a great price point as well definitely recommending them!

Review: Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation

20 Jan

Hello everyone! A stick foundation that I’ve been using lately and thought I should review it before it ends up in an empties post.

IMG_2311 IMG_2313 IMG_2314 IMG_2316

Description: A stick foundation with a oil control core to prevent oiliness from breaking through.

Review: I love the idea of just taking 1 minute to do my foundation and this product allows me to do that. I just swipe on the product and blend with a brush and I’m done. It had an interesting texture of a gel/cream and blended like a powder. The finish is a very dewy/glowy look which is great all year around I didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. Staying power was unfortunately only 4 hours and then it faded away the coverage is light-medium it covered some of my acne scars but not the new or deeply pigmented ones. The foundation glides on smoothly over the skin and I don’t notice any sort of oil control from the core. There is no scent and the packaging makes it easy to bring it along for touch ups throughout the day. What sucks about this foundation is that there is only 9g of product in it a regular foundation give at least 30g of product so if you are planning on purchasing this note the difference in the amount of foundation you receive. Overall, a quick and easy foundation for those who don’t have a lot of time and not so finnick-y skin.

Cost: $8-10 @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? This is a very convenient/easy product to use but for those with extremely oily skin it might not be the best.

Review: Wet ‘n Wild 8-Pan Palette in Comfort Zone

16 Jan

Hello everyone! A palette review today and this palette has gotten a lot more usage since these photos were taken as this has been one of my favorites to pull out for the lovely green shades for the holidays. Who are we kidding this palette works all year round!

IMG_1609 IMG_1611IMG_2189

Description: An 8-pan palette consisting of a cream yellow shimmer, pink shimmer, bronze brown shimmer, dark chocolate brown with gold glitter, greenish taupe shimmer, mid-tone grass green with shimmer, dark green with gold glitter and a duo chrome brown with green shimmers. My swatches doesn’t do this palette any justice.

Review: This is a great everyday palette especially with the colors on the left side of the palette. The shadows themselves are pigmented, blendable and easy to work with. With a primer they last 6-8 hours but without a mere 4 hours for all shades. They have a tendency to product fall out if you tap your brush in too much the powders are very loose in the pans. My favorite shade in this palette is the top left the taupe green shade because it’s such a unique shade that I don’t have in my collection at all. Overall, a great basic palette that everyone must have.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ local Supermarkets and Grocery Stores

Would I recommend this product? Yes! I mean what is not to love about this product?
