Description: A silver smokey eye trio. Browbone shade is a shimmering bright white, Crease is a matte black, and Eyelid is a shimmering grey silver.

Review: I have a general love for Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadows considering their price tag and how pigmented their shades are. This trio does not disappoint all three shades are pigmented and can be built up. With a primer they can easily last for 8 hours and more but on my oily lids without primer takes about 4 hours for the shades to appear somewhat muddy and not as bright as when I first apply them. The shades are very soft and pigmented but sometime you can easily blend the shade off your eyelid. Overall, a great eyeshadow palette for those on a budget and are looking for great eyeshadows.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ Superstore and Walmart

Would I recommend this product? Yes, this eyeshadow trio is excellent.

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: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

17 Feb

Hello everyone! Another mini-sized product from Benefit is going to be reviewed today. I’ve recently been loving the brand as they release out such great sets. This sample came from a Christmas set and I also have another one waiting to be used from the new Porefessionally Pretty set.

Description: For a healthy glow reach for the Girl who Meets Pearls for the first time. A golden pink cream to enhance and luminize the skin.

Review: Since I got the sample sized version of this (two of them actually) I just like how it dispenses the right amount of product but when I went to go try ou the full sized version I didn’t like how it dispensed the product. A quick Google search will bring up photos of this glue stick in which the product is dispensed through the top with a screen of sorts. I feel as though the packaging made sure to dispense a lot product and you couldn’t really control the amoun that you want. The product itself gives your skin a really nice glow that isn’t too glittery nor does it seem fake like High beam does on my face. As for the texture of the cream it is very smooth, blendable and just seems to glide across the skin. I use this mainly as a highlighter for my face but sometimes I mix it with my foundation to create a glowy dewy look without looking too oily. I love this product but the packaging and price puts me off purchasing another one well, I always have sample sizes to work through.

Cost: Full-sized $34CDN @ Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques

Would I recommend this product? I would this is a really nice highlighter for the skin

Review: Lavshuca Palette in OR-1

1 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore review today. Orange was a popular shade last spring and it’s expected to be a hot trend color once again.

Description: Four tantalizing shades of a modern mandarin. The first shade is orange tone champagne, a bright mandarin, a midtone brown, and a darker brown with orange shimmers. All the shades are shimmery shades with an orange tint.

Review: I find that orange shades are very flattering on practically any skintone the warmth that it provides for the skintone . It’s just a really nice shade to work with and since it is a trend color it just adds a nice pop of color. Pigmentation is good but I find that it is a bit chalky and there is a lot of fall out when I apply it. The powder itself is quite soft and blendable and the packaging is just too adorable.

Cost: $13-18USD @ online stores (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this to those looking for an orange shade but of course the downside is that it is only available in Japan so airmail time and shipping could deter you from purchasing.

Review: ELF Beauty Eye Manual – Brights Edition

22 Dec

Hello everyone! I saved the best for last the bright colors!!!

Description: A 12 color palette with bright, fun colorful eyeshadows! Shade descriptions are from left to right (top to bottom) Row 1 has a glittery silver white, shimmery golden champagne, glittery, gold pink, shimmery tan; Row 2 has a silver tone gold, a shimmery mid-tone green, a shimmery turquoise blue, a matte red based brown; Row 3 has a glittery blue based white, a shimmery bright purple, a shimmery dark rust/burgandy, and a shimmery silver speckled black. All shades were swatched with one swipe.

Review: Can I just say that I love bright colors but don’t dare to wear them? Well I can just can’t say no to bright colors so this palette has found a home for me (I foresee myself using this palette a lot during the summer months). The packaging is well meh as per usual for the other palettes as well. As for the eyeshadows I found the pink shade to be really crumbly so it’s super soft and that just makes it really hard to work with. But other than the pink shade all the other shadows were smooth, pigmented and very blendable. Wear time without primer is about 4 hours but with primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion) it lasted for 8-9 hours. Overall, a great colorful palette to play and have fun with.

Cost: $5USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I totally would based on the colors and who doesn’t need bright eyeshadows in their life? The pink shade is a shade that I can forgive for being difficult to work with as the other eyeshadows are of excellent quality. Two thumbs up for this palette.
