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: theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer

8 Mar

Hello everyone! I have picked up this bronzer lately and since I’m not really a bronzer person I mainly use this as a contour or sometimes a blush.

Review: I’m not a cheek product type of girl and probably won’t get into it any time soon but I got this as a gift with purchase. This is actually a really nice natural looking bronzer and it gives a nice sun-kissed look to my skin. The color is matte, no shimmer and isn’t orange like some other bronzers on the market. It is very pigmented, smooth powder with a soft brown undertone and is also great for contouring (especially in the winter months where I’m paler than my usual skintone) but put on too much it can look a little muddy on the skin. Packaging is flimsy cardboard and it makes it easy to dirty the packaging with the bronzer and it isn’t travel friendly I feel as if the powder will break if I take it travelling.  

Cost: $26CDN @ Rexall pharmacies or $19USD

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a natural looking bronzer but this will not work for those with darker skin tones (might not show up).
