Description: A trio of eyeshadows with a primer and glittery top coat. From top to bottom a light coral orange shimmer with gold shimmer, medium chocolate brown with shimmer, light baby blue shimmer.

Review: I love baby blue shades even though people say you shouldn’t wear it but it’s my favorite color! I think it works great for Spring/Summer looks and paired with a neutral outer v/crease shade it is a great color to wear. I really like the pigmentation and all the shades are shimmery the brown less so but they work very well together. The eyeshadows are all smooth and blend easily though it is very easy to blend the colors into non-existance. The primer is actually a really creamy powder and is a gold skin tone shade it works okay as a primer but I still apply another primer underneath. The glittering gold is a top coat that you can put on your eyes for a bright and fun look it is pretty smooth and applies quite easily. Overall, this is a great palette with fun shades.

Cost: $12-15 CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? This is a gorgeous palette for Spring and Summer I mean look at that blue it’s so pretty! This is a great fun palette to have to just brighten up your day.

Review: Revlon Photoready Eye Brightener + Primer

15 May

Hello everyone! I’ve had this in my collection for some time but have added it to my “To finish even if it means death” product list and this review will tell you why.

Description: An eye brightener and eyeshadow primer all in one with a universal shade that fits every skintone.

Review: This product comes in an interesting twist-click pen applicator and goes on smoothly over the skin. The texture is very smooth light lotion feeling and there are no shimmers or glitters in this product. Sadly I do not think that pink suits every skin tone especially those with yellow undertones. I find that this didn’t do much for my skin in terms of brightening it just kind of blended in and wasn’t brightening at all. As an eye primer it didn’t do much either applying eye shadows on top didn’t appear brighter or stay on longer. This is a nice product to smooth over the eye but sadly since it does nothing it adds product gunk on the eye. One of the good thing about this product was the packaging it makes it easy not to over apply and is pretty hygienic.  Overall, not a great product so I wouldn’t recommend this product for anyone.

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

Would I recommend this product? No, because it does not do what it claims don’t waste your money on this it is not worth the high price.
