Ok so this is one of those things that everyone has seen beauty bloggers rave about and so I wanted to try it too....after the first application I washed my face because it seemed TERRIBLE! They honestly should sell this with a beauty blender but that would change the price drastically. This can ONLY be applied with a beauty blender, a real one. If you don’t own the real beauty blender don’t even bother. Also if you don’t own consealer and finishing Powder don’t bother either. After five days of trying to see what the hell the beauty gurus saw in this I finally figured it out. No primer. Beauty blender & consealer and then fine finishing powder and it finally looks ok after 5 days of looking a fool. Ps I have top notch makeup skills so maybe if you’re a beginner don’t buy this.
In terms of eyeshadow these are not my favorite drug store ones. If you don’t have a good brush set don’t even bother. If you don’t have a good eye shadow primer also don’t bother (and the Hard Candy primer didn’t work had to use Too Face Shadow Insurance to even build this up). The colors are BEAUTIFUL so it was a disappointment. I finally got the Too Faced primer for Christmas so I gave it another shot and that’s when I managed to actually use this. So if you’re not gonna send the 24 bucks on the Too Faced primer, i would skip these and just admire the beautiful colors from a distance. There are many other great drug store shadows that don’t require this much work. Although they feel so buttery you’d think they’d be amazing....take it from a MUA...it’s no good. Sorry HC. I wanna love you so much, maybe I’ll give ya another shot one day.
I LOVE these! I use the glue that comes with or another kiss glue I have purchased and I always use a drill to file my nails and I usually get 7 days outta these with maybe one or two reglue moments. It like a third the price of a full set and looks just as nice. I always got my nails done till I tried these for the fun colors, and I’ve put a new set on every week. Love love love!!
This foundation is my favorite everyday makeup, it’s just like an Estée Lauder one I spend three times as much on, but 1/3 the price. It’s not a full coverage and thus the 4 stars but during the summer this never sweats off and recently they’ve improved the once paint thinner smell. I call it wat paint cause it can go through tears and stay on. It’s very light weight and doesn’t cause acne. It also doesn’t oxidize which is super important to me. Not only does it stay all day on a 110 degrees day but it’s beautiful on the skin. It’s not a good “glam” foundation but it is a good everyday day normal makeup foundation.
