This mascara does give some promised lift and definition, but it doesn't give me the volume and length that I crave. It is great for those with straight lashes, who want a curl, but it doesn't give that false-lash effect that most of us crave.
I was very excited to receive a sample of this mascara from Urban Decay. It makes my lashes darker and gives a bit of length, but it gives no volume, curl or lift. My lashes do not look that different, to be honest. I would not recommend this mascara, despite the gorgeous packaging, because there is not much else to it.
This lipstick is not quite matte - it is more of a satin texture. It has beautiful pigment and applies beautifully. However, it is quite drying on the lips. I have found drugstore matte lipsticks that perform just as well.
This is a stunning cream shadow. It is very pigmented and easy to blend with a brush or fingers. The consistency is almost mousse-like, allowing it to stay creamy longer than the previous formula. It stays all day long and comes in a gorgeous array of colours.
This a very nice primer. It has a light, smooth, creamy consistency. It blends beautifully into the skin and creates a smooth canvas for foundation. It does give some hydration, but I would not recommend it as a moisturizer.
I wanted to love this cleanser - it smells amazing and the texture is beautiful. Unfortunately, it is not for dry skin. My skin has been drier and flakier than usual after I started using this cleanser. It feels very tight. I imagine that it would be good for an oilier skin though. I do still use it as a mask occasionally and I like it for that.
This pencil is perfect for defined brows that still look natural. It has a tiny tip that creates tiny, hair-like strokes. The colour gives great definition without looking fake. It has a nice spooly that makes it easy to comb through brows and blend the colour. The best part: it is smooth and soft but not prone to breakage. It reminds me of the Dior Brow Maximizer without the hardness of the pencil.
The first time this limited edition balm came out, I missed our because it was sold out almost immediately. Now I see why. This balm smells like peaches in a way that is not sickly sweet. It has a beautiful, light texture, but hydrates really well. I love the custom shade of pink, which for me is a medium coral shade. It is the perfect every day lip product.
