Review: Integrate Eyebrow and Nose Powder

27 Feb

Hello everyone! So a blog post on a really good brow product that I love. I only have two brow products but both will last me for some time but today’s brow product comes from Japan.

Description: An everyday brow product that works well with you. Swatches were done with one swipe.

Review: I reviewed a brow powder before from Clinique (which I hated details here) and this one is much better. The light flesh shade is actually used as a contour on the sides of the nose bridge to imitate/ provide an illusion of a higher nose bridge. The other two shades are used for the brow the golden at the front and the brown at the end (evidently). The powders themselves are very soft and easy to use and I found that the applicator that comes with the compact makes the usage very simple and easy. It is pigmented (as you can tell from the swatch) but blends easily on the brows as in it becomes one with your brows. Packaging is simple but works great and I love how small it is (hooray for not taking up too much space in my makeup storage). Overall, I think this is a great brow powder that will last me for quite some time.

Cost: $15-20USD @ online sites (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would it is a really great powder for the brows and the fact that the lightest shade can be used as a nose contour makes this a great multitasker. If you dislike the wait time associated with air mail it’s not worth it for you but this is one of my favourites.

Review: Clinique Brow Powder

20 Jul

OMG! It’s a department store makeup brand! How can that be?! You never review department store products. Well now I am mainly because now I have the means to go shopping at department stores (but not that often so don’t expect them too much). Clinique is one of the lower end department stores cost wise for their makeup and MAC is also in that range. It’s a lot better than spending $30 for a brow powder from Estee Lauder or Dior.

Review: Clinique is well-known for their 1-2-3 skincare system (which I am too chicken to try) but not much is known about their makeup. I was in the market for a brow powder and this struck out as something I would love to try and it’s my first product that I bought from Clinique. The shade that I picked up was shaping taupe which is a little too brown for my liking but works with my brows. It works alright as a brow powder not that much pigmentation which is good in a brow powder you don’t want really strong brows (they have to look natural). The problem that I have with this is when you are picking up the powder with your brush not much gets on it… it’s bizarre no matter how many times you wipe your brush across the product it never seems to pick up any more product.

Cost: $19.50CDN

Would I recommend this product? This is an okay product but not the best of brow products out there. I would not recommend (did you say not recommend?!) this product as it was mediocre. Save your money and get some better brow powder from a drugstore or pick up a MAC eyeshadow that would suit your eyebrow colour (yes eyeshadow can be used as a brow powder).

Long waited haul

So I admit I haven’t been shopping for a while but I went today just because I had to pick up some stamps and envelopes for work. These are the things I picked up:

So the items from Clinique is the Brow Shaper in Shaping Taupe, Maybelline the Colossal and Falsies Mascara, and from the Body Shop two spring limited edition cheek blusher stamps in Rose and Coral (on sale!) and a sheer lip skine in Sheer Guava. I really like the blushes and since they were on sale AND limited edition I’m going to pick up two more either tomorrow or Thursday. It’s a neat concept and I would love to have backups of it (and I generally don’t have backups of products unless I really really like it).

Hope you enjoyed this post! More coming soon!
