You will receive a lot of the same type of products. I received so many mascaras and eyeshadow brushes over the year! Sometimes your bags will be a complete hit and have really great products, and other times it will be a complete miss. Yeah, it's affordable and you have a chance to get some high end samples in your bag but you are basically paying for those products in full for the months you receive bags with nothing you will ever use in them.
I really like the easiness of Venmo because none of my friends carry cash anymore so it makes going out together and paying each other back so simple! There is a service fee which is a bummer. This app is also really good to use if you are doing a fundraiser and want to allow people to pay "with their card," because they don't have cash since most people use this app.
These pressed pigments are AMAZING. The shades are so springy and different than any other mattes I own or have seen on the market. Colourpop never disappoints with pigmentation or quality of shadows and these ones are just incredible. The entire collection is just gorgeous and you can create bold or subtle eye looks. They are also so affordable! You will buy one pan and then end buying them all because they are so incredible.
You'll never find someone who doesn't like this product. If you like warm colors and neutrals, this palette is for you. It's the perfect about of bold oranges and neutral tuape shades. It's is richly pigmented and the shadows feel like Makeup Geek ones. This palette is so dimensional and unique! Definitely a holy grail.
Tarte's holiday palettes are always super affordable with so much product! The only flaw is that you can't get the shades year round. Tarte is well-known for its shadows and even at a more affordable price, these ones hold their ground. Any shimmer one is not streaky or sheer, and don't have any fall out. The eye shadows are so beautiful and pigmented!
This palette... $14?! It is worth every penny. This palette is better than so many high end palettes I have. The shadows are so blendable and the shades all go seamlessly together. It was obviously made by someone (obvi Carli Bybel) who KNOWS makeup and what works together. The highlight shades are also incredible and range from light to dark so there is a shade for every skin tone. I recommend this palette to all my friends just starting out in makeup because it will make you fall in love. The packaging is so lightweight so it's perfect for traveling and using the mirror. Best affordable palette on the market hands down!
I had a big event to go to that was an all-night kind of thing with lots of photos and I needed something to keep my makeup looking as good as it did right when I applied it. This setting spray does the job! With other setting sprays, I feel like it does a terrible job actually misting my entire face and I end up with drops of spray in random spots, but this gets my entire face and it definitely works! Worth it for a drugstore product because it's on par with high end setting sprays that I have tried.
I was honestly very skeptical of a curling mascara wand when I purchased this mascara. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it actually lifts and curls! I stopped using my eyelash curler all together because this mascara gave them the perfect slope. The wand doesn't make your lashes clump and they look really long and thick after applying! So many people ask me whether or not I have eyelash extensions because of the length they give my lashes. This should be a staple to anyone's makeup bag. Such an amazing product!
This palette is my holy grail. I have found that all of the shades blend marvelously and I can pretty much use any one for contour. I don't use the highlight shades, but it is definitely worth the price for the contour pans. They are so blendable for a powder contour!
The packaging makes this palette very unlikable. The slide tray for the highlighters and blushes is very hard to open. I truly only use this palette for one thing: the highlighters! The nudest highlight is so pretty and natural looking across your skin. You can highlight to the heavens and it is just gorgeous. For a drug store highlight, it blends really easily and doesn't have sparkle chunks. It's such an incredible drugstore highlight palette!
