Products I regret buying – Makeup

3 Jan

Hello everyone! This is a photo of makeup products that I regret buying. I’m also going to be doing one for skincare as well but that’s something totally different. So these are the products that I regret buying in 2010.

Products include:

The Body Shop Cheek Stamps (01 and 02) & Tea tree concealer (02)
Sally’s beauty inspired by Carmindy cream blushes (Ginger, Sunrise)
Wet ‘n’ Wild Blush (Spotlight Peach)
Stila Lipglaze (Cranberry, Candy, Plum Fairy & Starfruit) & Lip gloss (unknown bright pink color)
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (totally put off liquid foundation) & Mineralized Skin Finish (Brightening)
Maybelline Age Rewind Foundation & Colorsensation lipstick (pink please)
N.Y.C. pot lipgloss (watermelon) & Tinted Lip slider (sugar coated)
Clinique brow powder (shaping taupe)
Joe Fresh Lip gloss (nude)
MAC Viva Glam Gaga
Rimmel Moisture Renew (Nude delight)
Covergirl lipstick (it’s your mauve)
Bath & Body Works Liplicious (Grapefruit)
Nivea lipbalms (Cherry tint, caregloss and shine, sun protection)

That is a lot of product but then again I did buy many things in 2010. Hopefully after 2011 is over there won’t be as many products. In the meanwhile I am going to be trying to finish up these products then I can go buy new ones.

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!
