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.

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: L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner

Hello everyone! A liquid eyeliner review today that is tonnes better than the Almay liquid liner.

Description: A carbon black liquid eyeliner pen that dries quickly and is easy to use.

Review: I am not a lover of liquid eyeliner as they look a little too stiff and can be a pain to apply but this product has actually won me over to the liquid eyeliner side if only temporarily (I still love my pencil eyeliners!). What I love about this eyeliner is that is comes with a felt tip that is flexible and is easily able to contour around the eye. Another awesome thing is that the handle is long and is great for those who don’t know where to place their hands and such. This is an absolute dream to work with it is pigmented, dries very quickly and does not budge throughout the day (as long as there is no moisture near the eyes it is fantastic). Actual time this lasted on my eyes was a full 8 hour so it is a workhorse! L’Oreal has recommended to throw out this product after 3 months and I have to say that the 3 months is a good enough time to use the liquid eyeliner as the older it gets the more terrible the formula. I was using this everyday for 4 months and after that I noticed that the liquid eyeliner wasn’t staying on my eyelids and the line was easily disturbed by my eyelash curler. So after three months it is best to throw it away as the formula isn’t as good as it once was. Overall, this is a great liquid eyeliner and I would recommend it for lovers of liquid eyeliners and even beginners at using liquid eyeliners it is that easy and great to use.

Cost: $9-13 CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I cannot say enough good things about this product and will definitely repurchase if I make a dent in my current eyeliner collection.

Review: Almay Trio fro Hazel Eyes

29 Feb

Hello everyone! A really old eyeshadow review today Almay just redid their entire eyeshadow line so I can’t speak for the quality now but this was their eyeshadow quality before the line-up change.

Description: Swatches were done quite heavily (3 swipes) for the color payoff shown in the photo.

Review: I found that the shades were not as pigmented as I thought they were (it decieved me!). But the shades are very wearable for an everyday look and since they are not so pigmented it is great for days where I don’t want to put effort into my eyeshadow. The powders are actually kind of chalky if you pick up too much a flat shader brush as ideal and using small strokes to pick up the product resulted in not so much fall-out. Packaging is nice clear plastic and the designs on the shadows just make it appealing to me. Overall, not a very good palette so I’m glad it’s gone from the original line their new line products are much more pigmented.

Cost: $3CDN @ London Drugs (this palette style is not sold anymore)

Would I recommend this product? Since this product style is discontinued I won’t recommend nor recommend as it doesn’t exist.
