I wanted to love this, but was let down. The mascara, hands down, is amazing. That always has and will continue to work for me. The eye brightening cream feels refreshing and didn't irritate my sensitive eyes, but I don't know so much about the brightening part. Didn't notice much of a difference. The same goes for the under eye patches. Felt nice and relaxing, but I didn't see the hype over these. I didn't pay much for this, so I'm not that disappointed, but I will definitely only keep purchasing the mascara out of this bundle.
This has to be the worst setting powder I have ever tried. It is so fine, so it flies everywhere when you're applying it, even if it's just the slightest bit. It has a weird smell and the flashback it leaves is horrendous. You're better off spending a few extra bucks on a different drugstore powder (a great one I would recommend is the Fit Me one from Maybelline - currently my fave) than buying this flop of a product. STAY AWAY.
BH Cosmetics is one of my favorite affordable brands, so I knew I had to get my hands on it once they released the preview. The pigmentation and blendability is on point, but I had to give this three stars because I don't feel the colors that were paired with each Zodiac sign correlate with one another. I think the idea is brilliant, but it was just poorly put together at the end. I also have to say that it is difficult to create looks with just this palette alone, but when used with another palette, the results are beautiful.
I recently hopped on the wagon of using blush, so when I this, I was immediately drawn to it. Not only are the colors gorgeous, but they swatched just as good in store. I was not surprised to see how easily they went on. Depending on what kind of hand you have, they can be extremely pigmented or be built up, so it goes either way. Not only do you get a good amount of product, but you get matte AND shimmer shades! This is definitely a plus as that is not something other companies (that I know of, at least) have done with their blushes, and for $16? It's an incredible deal you're getting.
Review for: MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder 13 Ivory 0.09 oz/ 2.7 g more...
Can you say BLINDING? I got this during the VIB sale at Sephora after wanting it for so long and I'm so glad I did. I used this today on top of my regular highlighter and I was shook! It catches the light so beautifully, I'm truly speechless. A little goes such a long way, so this will definitely last you a long time. I highly recommend this for my babes who love to blind the haters.
I don't know how more people aren't raving about this palette. I'm in love! You get 4 good sized pans of product for only $10. That's a huge steal! The bronzer is slowly making its way to be one of my favorite bronzers and I love the coral blush for that nice flush of color. The highlighter gives you a beautiful glow from within look, which is great for not only those who prefer that, but for myself when I go to work. I love love love this. It's so good, I think I'll be picking up another one as this is limited edition!
I really wanted to love this product, but unfortunately it's ended up all the way in the back of my drawer. I love Anastasia, but this has to be my least favorite product from them. You really have to dig hard into the product to get a good amount on the brush since the powder is rather dry and there is little to no kickback. If I'm trying to get ready quickly, this palette will definitely make me late because it just doesn't seem to work. If you're someone who loves to gradually build color, then by all means, get this because it's definitely buildable, but I prefer something with some kickback and a soft feel to it since I know it'll pick up easily on my brush. I only recently used it for my Halloween look (I was a zombie bride). I gave this three stars because it comes with a good amount of product and the packaging is sleek, which is perfect for travelling. Besides that, this is a no for me
I used to really love this stuff, but after a while, I started noticing how it made my eyebrows look harsh and gave me that "angry brow" effect. Another downfall of this product is that it dries up really quick, which I feel shouldn't happen considering the pigmentation on this is insane; so only a little is needed every use, meaning that the product will last you a while. I am aware that you can add drops of water to make it work, but I don't know. That sounds sketchy to me and just doesn't allow me to gravitate towards this anymore. I'll only use this now and then when I want a super defined brow, but it sits in the back of my drawer for the most part.
For a drugstore brand (or affordable brand since this is only available online), I appreciate and respect that they released a large range of shades for every skin tone, but the flop in this is the fact that it oxidizes. Everything else is on point - the application, blendability, consistency, but what good is all of this if after a few minutes after applying it, it's already oxidizing BADLY? That really messes someone's look up. Maybe I'll try again with a super light shade, but I don't know. There's definitely took for improvement, I feel.
This is complete garbage. I don't know what happened with this palette, but it definitely needs to be sent back to the lab and be reformulated. I know every brand has their bad products, but bad isn't enough to describe the catastrophe of this palette. Sorry ABH! Love you, but hate this.
