2B Colours became available at Ulta a few months ago and I received a few items from the brand to test out. If you haven’t heard of this brand before, this affordable brand originated in Europe and came to the United States rather recently. So is this brand worth checking out? Let’s find out…and stick around till the end for a chance to win some 2B Colours products for yourself! 🙂
If you follow me on any of my social media channels, you’ll know Ulta Beauty is my all-time favorite store to purchase beauty products from (can’t wait for their 21 Days of Beauty!). I’m always dropping in, whenever I can, to see what new products they have and while I had thought that 2B Colours was only available online at Ulta.com, I saw this display at my local store.
2B Colours Products
Here’s a birds-eye view of all the products I received. In a cute little box, too! The nail polish I will not be reviewing today, since I wanted to stick with all the makeup products. I have used it once before, though, and it’s decent. Hard to apply, but looks cute.
Make-Up Base Primer — The consistency, when squeezed out, looks like a silicone primer but when you start smoothing it over your skin it turns to feeling more like a moisturizer. It dries down completely without any tackiness. I like it most to smooth out my pores but it does help prolong the wear of my foundation. If you have oily-prone skin, though, this won’t help keep the oils away.
Concealer Correcting Waterproof Stick — $1.99 — In short, I didn’t like this concealer. It definitely isn’t the type to use under your eyes, but it felt too greasy and didn’t blend out smoothly when I used it to cover imperfections. Because of the greasy feel it doesn’t hold up very long, either, so while it’s very affordable I would say to pass on this one.
Time to Make-Up Terra Powder — $2.29 — This is a very warm-toned bronzer that appears to have a little glitter in it, but it shows up as a pretty sheen on the skin. It’s nicely pigmented and works beautiful as a bronzer, or even a blush. I have a light-medium skintone with yellow undertones and on those natural days I like using it as a blush.
Blush Cheek Pop — $1.99 — It feels very creamy when I’m swatching it and shows up nicely on the cheeks. While it’s nicely pigmented, it isn’t so much so that you have to be careful to use a light hand. For the price, this is the perfect blush for a beginner.
My Eye Shadow — $1.49 — You know I love my eyeshadows! 🙂 And this eyeshadow is great, in my opinion. It’s pigmented, soft, and shows up beautifully on my eyelids.
In the picture above I used the shadow — in Dark Green — all over my lid and just used a matte brown on the outer corner. I didn’t use any Fix+ or eyeshadow base underneath the shadow, and it showed up nicely.
Cat Eyeliner — Okay, I’m going to admit right up front that I didn’t think I was going to like this product. The felt tip was very large and the pen was short and fat. It just didn’t seem like it would give me the kind of winged liner that I like. But! Actually, it worked out very well! It was easy to apply and dries down to a nice, dark, matte black. I really, really like this product and recommend it! Especially on the days when I want a wing but am short on time.
Eye Liner Retractable Waterproof — $1.99 — Another very black eyeliner that goes on very intense and sets pretty well. I have pretty watery eyes, so any type of eyeliner has a hard time staying in my waterline. But this one works fairly well and stays in my waterline for several hours before it starts to smudge and disappear.
Mascara Colours Make a Difference — $1.99 — Another product that was a dud for me. I’m not a fan of different colored mascaras and the brush on this mascara was too fat for me. It clumped all my lashes together and they didn’t look right even after I used another regular mascara on top.
Hydrastick Lip Balm — $4.99 — Ever since the birth of my baby, I can’t get enough lip balm for my chapped lips! This has shimmer in the balm, so it’s nice to have in my purse to apply on the go when my lips are dried but still want a little something on my lips. It feels nice on my lips and gives them a little more life. 🙂
Here’s a row of swatches from all of the products — except the lip balm. That wouldn’t show up. 🙂 As always, the powders were swatched on bare skin twice. The liners I passed over my skin twice as well. 🙂 Isn’t the pigmentation pretty great?!
