I haven’t used glitter in a long time, let alone a glitter cream eyeshadow and now I know why. Now before you get all huffy on me, yes I know that this is used as a topper to a regular eyeshadow which I did, and yet still meh. Well I was a little more disappointed than meh but you can read on and find out why.
A couple nights ago my boyfriend and I were food shopping before we got hit with yet another lovely snow storm. Sense the sarcasm in my voice? Well any way I saw a huge Wet N Wild display up the Valentine’s Day Aisle and just had to check it out. That is where I found glitter single cream eye shadows for a dollar a piece. I grabbed them up, and even posted an exciting picture on instagram of the trio I snagged. Thats about as far as my excitement went.
Lets first start out with what I got.
Spiked, which is a gray and silver sparkle. I thought this would be very versatile for any kind of look!
Vices, a bright red which was right up my alley for a Valentine’s day look.
And finally Groupie which I thought was a great pinky mauve color and I honestly just adored it….for a short period of time.
So my first beef with these is the weight of them along with the texture. Honestly it felt as if I had applied vaseline to my eyes and just left it there. It was gooey and very heavy on the eye. It felt like I was wearing makeup and that was a no no!
That being said here was the look I was going for today.
I again liked it for about two seconds. And don’t mind that eye booger, we all have em, I just decided to show mine off! Any who, you wanna see why I don’t like it? Alright, here you go!
Say what?!?! Now I did use Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and I did use an eyeshadow, Sha La La from the Little Mermaid Palette to be exact. But this glitter was on about two minutes and boom it messed everything up before I could even finish my face. Oh and also I used it only right above my lash line, the rest was purely Sha La La, yet it creased everything and took most of my eye shadow off.
So all in all I give this stuff a 0.1 out of 10 stars because it did look pretty in the package but that was seriously all it had going for it. Do yourselves a favor invest in cosmetic loose glitter and adhesive, don’t even try this for fun like I did. It is a total waste!!!
Are you guys ready for the worst review yet, no seriously it’s bad. I’m not feeling the love this Valentine’s day with this product!!! I wish I could return them! Stay tuned later tonight or tomorrow for the horrific review!
Okay, so I need to just say how extremely excited I am to be doing my first cosplay! I mean I get to buy a bunch of theater makeup! Yay! Granted its all white and setting powders but heck I get to make some big time purchases! So far I have been buying all Mehron products, I just can’t wait for them to arrive! Just wanted to let you guys all in on a little secret. The convention I’m going to is still a month away but I have a lot of work to do. Thank god I already got the dress, but I still need Rigid Collodin, huge dramatic lashes, and I need to make a key for a wind up doll. I’ve been going a little over budget but, I am going to cosplay as this in March, June, August and most likely Halloween so I’ll get my use! Needless to say I am excited but looking for suggestions on any brands you guys use! Thanks xxoo
One of my items I received in my January Ipsy Glam Bag was the Yaby Liquid Foundation. For one I never even heard of this product, but after looking at reviews I was very excited to try it.
Okay so yea it’s kinda scary getting a foundation on a whim in a bag where you don’t even get to pick your shade, but hey Ipsy got it right and it was a great match for my skin! So I was actually able to use it a few times to actually give a review.
The lasting ability of this, with a primer and setting spray, is great. It lasts all day on me without getting splotchy or wear spots.
The finish is dewy, which I’m not that big of a fan of, I prefer matte all the way! This gave a very natural finish with a slight dewiness, which I’ll be honest I was hating at first but it grew on me. It played up on that no make up, make up look that I wear often. So in the end it did get me on that and I quite enjoyed it.
The coverage is meh. It’s very light and buildable. But I like heavy duty, I mean after all Kat Von D’s Lock it tattoo foundation is my holy grail. But again if you aren’t looking for that matte, airbrushed finish then I think this is a great foundation.
To be honest I didn’t have any negatives while using this foundation. It was more so my preferences playing into it, but I did enjoy it when I wore it for those super natural looking make up days. If you like light coverage, a light weightless formula and a dewy finish I’d say get this foundation for sure!
