Review for: Cheap Date, Glow, DGAF, Mixed Tape, So Quiche, Bill, Other
I've tried quite a few of these... honestly they only work well for the lid... not the entire eye. ESPECIALLY the more matte shades... they're difficult to blend and not too much pigment (the glittery/shimmery ones are great though!). They have like a wet feeling which is actually pretty cool but these do dry up if you don't close them tight... so that's another down fall.
I have never struggled with acne, but my forehead gets the most breakouts and for a while I had like small bumps on my forehead similar to "acne" babies get. This absolutely did nothing for my face if anything it dried up the rest of my face and cause irritation.
I love this lotion! It's amazing! I had extremely dry skin with loads of dry patches no matter how much water I drank. This really helped me get rid of the dryness of my skin especially on my face without being oily, greasy, or gross like other lotions and oils.
Of all of the shades of this product that I have used, they have all worked in the same manner. While they are inexpensive, I don't believe they are worth getting unless you have oily skin.
For my skin type, they tend to crack, feel thick, feel and look gross. Once it's set it looks even thicker/more cakey and it's not the most comfortable product to have on my face. I think this product would be better suited on someone who has oily skin versus someone with normal to dry skin.
Overall not the best and I wish I liked it more than I do...
I actually really enjoy using this concealer for actual concealer, highlight, contour, and or eyeshadow primer. It's honesty a good inexpensive product. The product is pigmented, blendable, doesn't feel thick/cakey, full coverage and has a brush so it's easy and convenient to use.
Normally it's about $5

This product is very light, simple, and extremely natural. While the foundation matched my skin tone well, it doesn't cover much. It works much better as a setting powder and leaves a nice smooth finish. The eyeshadows in the palette are very simple but pigmented and very cute. I did not need an eyshadow primer to make them pop, especially the purple shade "Supernova." As for the blush, I like how natural it is. It's very pigmented but the shade is not too red, not too purple, it's just right. (I'm not a blush person, but this one caught my attention) I thought that the eyeshadow applicator was old fashioned, while it works well to pack on eyeshadow to the lid, I would not use it often. The brush that comes in the kit is convenient in size and shape (it also opens up like a book which is cool because you can fold it for contour, or open it to apply powder/blush to your face)... but it was too rough to use on my sensitive skin. As for the "Forever Peach" lip and cheek stain, it's really more like a clear non sticky, thin gloss. There wasn't much pigment or peachy color to it. Ovwrall the whole kit was cute and simple, quite honestly I probably would not buy it. The size of the box is inconvenient and yoy get very little product. If you enjoy that light, simple, barely noticeable makeup look, then this might be for you.
I was not fond of this product. I have tried it on multiple occasions and each time it just made my lips burn really badly (Kind of like when you eat a lot of chile.. that kind of burning). For the amount of pain it caused my lips, I would have been fine with it if it gave the allusion of larger lips at least... but it doesn't.
You can get this free using code: DUPEDIARIES (with a purchase of a mousse)
Personally I really like this glove because it made the application easier. I've tried other tan application gloves and didn't like them as much. The glove makes a HUGE difference when you're trying the get a perfect faux tan. It makes the product go on smoothly rather than streaky like a lot of other applicators. My hand never slips when I use it, which was nice. Plus this helps prevent stains on hands.
I will say you should get a new one each time you buy a new mousse because they don't work the same if you try washing them. (You get the application glove free with my code DUPEDIARIES so that saves you from having to spend extra)
I have been using this for a month now and I absolutely LOVE it. Since I have dry skin, it is hard for me to find something that really moisturizes my skin, especially my face. Usually I use oils because most lotions are too thick and make me break out. However, after using this my face isn't as dry as it was nor have I broken out because of it. It works great on my body as whole not just my face, but the most noticeable results were on my face.
