I never had access to IKEA until I moved up North. My husband had the idea to get my daughter a new bed from IKEA. My first thought...”are you nuts!? I don’t want my daughter to get hurt because the flimsy IKEA bed suddenly collapses.”
This was a very ignorant thought. The only experience I had with IKEA before were the jokes about IKEA furniture being for poor college students and that the products were next to impossible to put together because of the instructions were so vague.
Soooo 6 years later and 15 pieces of IKEA furniture later, I’ve found all these stereotypes about IKEA to be extraordinarily WRONG!
Everything we have bought from IKEA has been a great price, easy to put together and very sturdy quality.
I love the look of their products and well I just love everything they have. Practically our whole house from furniture, decor, kitchen gadgets to everything else is from IKEA.
I love my wooden cutting board (it was $17 anywhere else it would have been $40+)
We use a lot of IKEA hacks ideas and even made an amazing coffee bar from their kallax collection.
I also love that it’s not crazy expensive. We have 3 kids ranging from 2-14 years old and we really needed/wanted furniture that looked good but wasn’t too expensive in case one of the kids did something.
Okay so I have to start by saying, BUY THIS NOW ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE BLONDE!
I am a natural blonde, so if course my eyebrows are blonde and if I don’t do something with them, I look like I have no eyebrows.
I CAN NOT tell you how many different eyebrow pencils, powders and gels I’ve tried in my lifetime.
This product is by far superior. I don’t like spending a lot of $$ on makeup, so if I can find something similar for cheaper, I will buy it. But this is the only eyebrow pencil I’ll ever buy again.
I was pretty terrified when I found out it’s one color fits all. That can’t be....guess what!? It is!!!
I made the horrible mistake of buying a cheaper “blonde” eyebrow pencil because the store was out of stock of this one...this was a huge mistake.
In the mirror at home, it looked decent. But when I got outside I’m the beautiful natural sunlight...I looked like friggin Ronald McDonald! My eyebrows were this orangish-red. It was horrifying. Thank goodness I had wet wipes with me, although I walked around with no eyebrows in sight, it was a lot better than having bright red eyebrows! Hahaha
I immediately returned the eyebrow pencil and luckily they had this product back in stock and I bought it.
Now I’m back to my fabulous eyebrows!
The color is perfect, it’s easy to put on and control how light or dark you want your eyebrows. It’s very natural looking and stays all day without rubbing off. Love it!
I used this product for over 10 years. Before it was even available in retail stores. The first time I used it I was pretty horrified to be honest. It seemed to just clump on my face and wasn’t even. Eventually I realized I was putting it on wrong. When you use this make sure you are swirling the brush, tap tap tap and then in a circular motion apply it to your face.
I was just lightly brushing it on like I would do with a setting powder, it was total user error. But luckily I’m not one to give up easily and eventually I found the perfect way to apply it to my face.
This product is great if you’re looking for:
1. controlled coverage (you can do light to heavy depending on what you need)
2. concealer (the concealer brush + this and any imperfections or blemishes disappear)
3. Quick and easy
It does seem to settle into wrinkles. I’m in my early 30’s and only have one small wrinkle as of now, but I do notice that as the day goes one this product tends to settle in my wrinkle and makes it a lot more noticeable.
However this can be prevented by using a good primer beforehand.
I’ve never used the more expensive brand of this product. But after reading ALOT of reviews and watching a ton of review videos, I decided to give this product a try. I was extremely impressed. This is nothing like those wedge sponges I used when I was first wearing makeup. I recently switched back to a liquid foundation after using a powder one for 10 years. I was pretty terrified to be honest, hence watching all the review videos! This makeup sponge really makes putting on makeup a fool proof process. I definitely prefer to use it wet, however I have used it dry (when I’m in a rush) and the results are still pretty amazing. I would definitely recommend using this product!
