Review for: Wisp (golden champagne with gold pearls with pearlized finish) more...
I bought this because it was recommended by a lot of beauty gurus on YouTube as a great but affordable highlight. It definitely is an amazing highlight in an amazing champagne gold color! It is highly pigmented, especially because it is not a powder product, but a “cushion” type consistency best applied with your fingers. It is amazingly affordable and you get a good amount for the money, the only thing I worry about is it drying out, but that’s pretty minor considering all of the positives!
I really like the quality of this brush! This was my first purchase from Morphe, and after all the hype, it did not disappoint. I find it to be comparable in quality and look to MAC brushes, but at a much more affordable price, and it is cruelty free!
I bought this as a more affordable alternative to the Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain in the “Rose” or red color. This works just as well in my opinion. It has a different applicator (doe foot versus the nail polish brush-like one on the Benefit product) but it doesn’t really affect how it works. It is a really great lip stain and lasts a while, but if you eat/drink it tends to come off. It is also difficult to get it to apply well over any other lip balm or lip products, since it is a liquid going over a waxy balm. It still applies, just not as easily or evenly as when you apply it on bare lips (my lips are perpetually chapped so I can’t really do this). I tried it as a blush too and a little bit goes a long way with this- all you need are a few drops or you’ll end up looking like a clown. Overall I recommend this as a natural looking lip stain, but it could also be built up to be a darker cherry colored red if you wanted.
This powder was very affordable and also a great value, as it comes with a ton of product. It also comes with a makeup “puff” to apply the powder if you want. I personally use a fluffy brush to apply it, and find it to be pretty similar to the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder in terms of how well it works to set your face (but without any scent). However, unlike the Coty translucent powder, this powder comes slightly colored in beige, so it can be misleading when looking at it, but I believe it is a universal translucent powder so it works for any skin tone (sort of like how the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is colored). I would recommend this to anyone looking for affordable setting powders that work, however it can be a little hard to find in stores and even online, so if you find it grab it!
I bought this product in my original set of 3 BareMinerals face products. I have to admit, I honestly mostly use the bareMinerals Original Loose Powder Foundation alone, and don’t use this or the bronzer powders that often. This powder and the bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Color Bronzer come in slightly smaller containers than the foundation, so it can be hard to get a brush into it and a pain since they are loose powders. However, this powder itself is definitely illuminating and lighter than the foundation powder, so I think it is a good quality setting powder, just not the easiest product to use in my opinion.
I got this product for a really great price when it was available on Amazon. It comes with a lot of product, but since it is a loose powder, it can be messy. It does come with a small makeup “puff” to apply it I believe, but I just use a large fluffy brush (like the real Techniques Powder Brush or e.l.f. Studio Kabuki Face Brush) to apply it and it helps make my makeup matte. It does have a slight floral smell to it that some people don’t like, but I don’t mind it, and it goes away pretty quickly. It was definitely worth the purchase!
I bought this product based on the recommendation of a Beauty guru on YouTube. It is good for what she recommended it for (setting under eye concealer), but just be aware it is much smaller than you think it will be! It’s a very tiny square container and comes with a mini brush. I use the Real Techniques Setting Brush and use it to set my under eye concealer. It is actually translucent even though it looks white, it changes once it’s applied to your skin. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable setting powder, but mainly for those looking specifically to set their under eye area, since it does not come with enough product to set your whole face for very long.
This is a pretty good affordable setting spray that you can get at the drugstore. I feel like it does prolong your makeup a little bit (not sure how much it helped) and did not add extra oil to my face. I just wish it sprayed a fine mist instead of having it sometimes spray so much that it drips down my face. If they fixed the sprayer, this would be the perfect product!NYX Makeup Setting Spray - Matte
This setting spray is not the best...the sprayer is not a fine mist at all! But I feel like it would be good for spraying on brushes to make eyeshadows or blushes more pigmented. It is also very affordable.
