Apologies for the lack of posting in March, I did a bit of travelling and did not have enough time to pre-write or film. I am back though, and back with a simple neutral eye tutorial using a very affordable palette: Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Eyeshadows palette.
I’ve only used this palette once so far (while filming this video) so I don’t want to give it a full review so far but first impressions, this palette is good for the price but some of the shades are a lot harder to work with than others, some don’t show up at all, and some are great!
I was thinking of starting a series where I test out drugstore/affordable eyeshadow palettes and let you know which ones are worth it and which ones aren’t? Let me know what you think! Enjoy the video!
You can never go wrong with a brow, a wing, and a good lip.
I must admit, I am a fan of NYX. They are one of my favorite affordable brands and the fact that they’re rapidly expanding and becoming easily available is making me warm to them more. I have a number of their products now, mostly their matte lipsticks and not so long ago I completed my collection (of shades I wanted, not of their entire range) so I figured it was time for a review.
Skincare (along with hair care) has never really been my thing. It just struck me as really long and exhausting and who has the time to put on ten different products after a long day anyway? I’ve been trying to get into it more over the last few months, this began with trying out the very talked about skincare brand: Mario Badescu.
My under-eye circles have always been a huge problem for me and one of my biggest insecurities. Ever since I was a young teen, I’ve always struggled with them. They’re so dark and brown, it makes the rest of my face look more jaundiced than it normally is and for the longest time, I felt like I couldn’t go out without makeup due to my dark circles. Now that I’m older, I’ve learned to live with them. They’re hereditary (thanks, dad) so I’m stuck with them for life but through many trials and many errors, I feel like I have finally figured out a way to make them disappear whenever I feel like it.
This review is long overdue. I initially ordered this kit on its release date back in April, but problems with shipping and having to go through customer service to get a replacement meant that I only ended up getting it about a week ago. Before I even start on the product, I must give a huge shout-out to Sleek’s customer service for being very professional and understanding. They sent me a replacement no questions asked and they sent it tracked which isn’t even what I initially paid for.
