Review - Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow
- Bad to the Bronze (left)
- Barely Branded (middle)
- Tough as Taupe (right)
I absolutely love these. I was pleasantly surprised about how well they work. Since it’s the summer and these are cream eyeshadows I automatically assumed they would melt off my face but they stay on all day. They claim to be 24 hour but of course I haven’t worn them for a full 24 hours lol. They do not crease and the colour stays vibrant even if you rub your eyes. I use Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer and it works great with these. Bad to the Bronze is an amazing bronze shimmery colour, it’s one of my favourites. Barely Branded is a great champagne highlight colour and I also use it on my entire lid and then add Tough as Taupe in the crease. It is very bright and shimmery. Tough as Taupe is my favourite colour from the collection. It looks more brown in the tube but it’s a very nice warm brownish grey colour. It is the only matte colour and I find it goes with almost everything. I love to use it in my crease. These eyeshadows work great as a base under eyeshadow but I prefer to use them on their own since the colour payoff is amazing. They also blend very well! The only complaint I have is that I wish there were more matte colours and they are veryyyyy hard to take off even with makeup remover. I feel like I have to rub my eyes very hard to get these off. If you haven’t tried these yet I highly suggest that you do! (:

Review - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick
- Softsilver Rose (left)
- Demure (middle)
- Coralberry (right)
These lipsticks are definitely super lustrous like they claim to be. They are very smooth and creamy on the lips and feel hydrating. These are not matte lipsticks, they have a very nice shiny appearance. They have a decent colour payoff, I personally wish they were a bit more vibrant like you see in the tube, however the colour is very buildable. The softer colour (Demure) is very sheer and not that noticeable on the lips. I also find they tend to crease a bit on my lips and they rub off quite easily.
Softsilver Rose (left) has the best staying power. It’s a very nice everyday pink with silver shimmer. Demure (middle) is very sheer and adds a nice shine to the lips. It reminds me of a lip gloss but it stays on longer since it’s a lipstick. Coralberry (right) is a beautiful coral summer colour. For those of you who are intimidated on buying a bright coral lipstick try this one first. It is a pinkish orange colour and It’s not as bright as a traditional coral lipstick but it’s very buildable.
Would I recommend these?
Yes. Rating: 3/5
For the price it’s definitely worth it. I got these on sale for $4 each. I would say they have medium quality and I would recommend using these with a lip primer or to exfoliate your lips well before using these since they can settle in the crease of your lips. You will have to reapply these throughout the day especially if you’re eating or drinking.
