I live this palette so much. If you’re on the fence about getting it, do it!! It’s so much more than just a neutral palette. It’s cool toned, neutral, with some pops of warm in there. So versatile! I love how I can go grungy or neutral. The shimmers are seriously STUNNING in this. The mattes blend seamlessly! I can’t get bored of it.
I’m obsessed with the color story of this palette. It’s so unique and grungy. I don’t have any issues with blending or anything, I just use a VERRRY VERY VERY!!! light hand. The issue I have with this palette is that the colors fade on my eyes within like... 20 minutes. It takes so long to create a vibrant look because of that. Cube and Electric are also a weird formula - it’s like they hit hard pan immediately. Still love this palette though - just can’t get over it’s beautiful colors.
For the price, this is really amazing. It’s a good palette regardless, but you can’t beat the price. It blends really well, is pigmented, and the lasting power is okay. Not the strongest lasting power but still pretty good - again, because it’s so cheap. I’d repurchase and recommend!
This mascara is a little terrifying to apply (the brush is HUGE), and it’s plastic. It’s a really good mascara, though! It takes about 8-10 hours before flaking and it doesn’t smudge. It also makes my eyelashes look really pretty; more lengthening than volumizing. Because it’s a plastic brush, it also is better at separating my lashes.
Unfortunately, this mascara is not cruelty free. However, before I went cruelty free with beauty products, this was my holy grail mascara. It doesn’t flake, it doesn’t smudge, and it made my eyelashes incredibly voluminous and lengthened. It really is the perfect mascara. Still trying to dupe it... or, Clinique could just stop testing their makeup on animals. That would be a better alternative for everyone.
I like the plastic brush on this, because I can really get right up in there. It’s more lengthening than volumizing. Very very black. I don’t remember a whole ton of flaking. My issue with this mascara was that it was so difficult to take off. I used 3 different she makeup removers with this and to no avail - I had to rub my eyes long and hard in order to get this crap out.
I really like how this makes my lashes look, even though it takes some time to build your lashes up. It flakes in about 4-6 hours, so not terrible. My biggest beef with this stuff is that it m smudges. My bottom lashes are weirdly long, so I get smudges from this mascara like up by my cheek bone area. Gets all over my lids too, because it’s a wetter formula.
