Essence eyeliner pen extra longlasting unboxing and first impressions

An unboxing as well as my first impressions of the Essence eyeliner pen extra longlasting that Shopper’s Drug Mart sent me. They also sent me a coupon that would allow me to buy $10 worth of Essence makeup, and to get a free mascara if I do so. I will hopefully be doing a mini haul video if I use the coupon. I am not being paid or endorsed by Shopper’s Drug Mart or Essence Cosmetics to review and/or advertise it. All opinions are my own.

Review of Quo blending sponge and beauty blender dupe

I will be reviewing the Quo blending sponge today. It is a dupe for the beauty blender, at a much cheaper price. At first, I thought it was a bit silly spending so much on a makeup sponge, until I found Quo’s version. It has a rounded end, and a pointed end, and comes in at the middle. It is purple. It’s actually kind of cute looking. The beauty blender, on the other hand, comes in pink, black and white, and is round on one end and pointed on the other. The Quo version is only $5, in comparison to the upwards of $25 for the beauty blender. Honestly, I’ve watched videos, and it seems to do the same thing. Even $5 seems a lot for a sponge,but this thing actually works. It creates a somewhat airbrushed look, simply by wetting the sponge, spotting some foundation over one’s face, and bouncing the sponge all over, until everything is blended in. It definitely could replace a few makeup brushes, as the pointed end works well for applying concealer under the eyes, and around the nose. I recommend this product highly, as a beauty blender dupe, that just might replace a couple face brushes.

I used covergirl trublend liquid makeup in ivory1 for my photos in this post. Photo on 2014-05-11 at 4.46 AM #2

Review of NYC lipstick in mahogany320

NYC lipsticks are great in that they are quite cheap, as well as being highly pigmented. Mahogany is no exception. It was 1.99 C before taxes. It is a gorgeous, deep burgundy, vampy coloured lipstick. It is extremely pigmented, which means one must be very careful with application. A lip liner might be suitable for this tube. It is most definitely a great choice, when I have my playful, soft goth aesthetic days. The lipstick has a clear lid so one can see the lipstick before buying, and it is true to colour. It is not the easiest to apply, but the end result is so worth it.It smudges a fair bit, but leaves behind a nice stain. I highly recommend this lipstick for anyone who likes intense, vampy statement lipsticks. Photo on 2014-05-11 at 4.24 AM #2
