In the fall of last year Smashbox Cosmetics launched their well rounded brush line of 30 different types of brushes…and you know this makeup brush-loving girl got excited! I spent a while testing them all out and deciding my feelings/thoughts on them…and I’m ready to share it with you all! Plus, I’ve also gone through my makeup collection to see if there are any cheaper alternatives I can recommend instead of these Smashbox makeup brushes! Let’s get right to it!
I’m really excited to be sharing my top 5 under $5 — these are products that are so good, they rival or exceed my love for highend alternatives. You can’t go wrong with any of these products, I highly recommend them all! Keep reading to find out what products are SO good you…almost can’t believe they’re less than $5.
It’s been a while since Too Faced came out with a new addition to their Chocolate Bar collection — the Chocolate Bon Bons came out end of 2015/beginning of 2016. And this new release is absolutely stunning. Unlike all three of their previous palettes, the Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette is SO eye catching! Ready to see some swatches?
I’ve always been curious about lip plumping devices, but never enough to invest in one. I’ve always liked the size of my lips. Sure, if my top lip was a tad bigger it would be nice — but that’s not typically how lips are naturally. So why did I agree to test out the PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System? Well, just keep on reading to find out! 😉
I’ve always been a fan of the Wet n Wild Color Icon shadows — not only for how affordable they are, but also for the great quality of their shimmers. But I’ve always had to bring in other matte shadows from other palettes to make a complete look…but Wet n Wild has listened to our requests and just REVAMPED their whole Color Icon shadow line to include a few matte shadows in each! Without raising the price, I might add! But…are they still just as good as the old formula? And are the mattes any good? Let’s dive into the details!
Makeup brands collaborating with beauty youtubers has been a big trend lately…and Pixi Beauty decided to join the fun not with just one youtube collaboration…but four! Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know the youtubers before they collaborated with Pixi on these products…I was only familiar with two of the four! 😛 But anyways, were the products in the collab good? That’s what we are talking about today…plus, there is a bonus giveaway at the end! 😉
The buzz surrounding the new formulation and addition of matte shades in Wet n Wild’s popular Color Icon line hit an all-time high when we saw their Rosé in the Air palette. Last year the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette basically revolutionized the beauty community for it’s fantastic formula and warm-toned reds and oranges, so of course everyone immediately saw the similarities between these palettes. And considering the price difference, everyone has been asking….”is it a dupe for Modern Renaissance??” Well, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty!
