april 2017 empties!

It's veeerrry possible that I received this Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in BLACK {$22.00} in an ipsy bag; but I honestly can't remember, so let's just leave it at that, shall we? Babes, I was so excited to try this bad boy out, but I was majorly disappointed. The color itself is positively brilliant {an intense black}; my issue lies within the pen. It goes dry so frequently while you're applying it, that you legit want to throw it across the room. The constant stopping makes it, IMO, impossible to work with. NOT a re-buy.

I have a few holy grail mascaras, and Too Faced's Better Than Sex Mascara {$23.00} is def near the tip top of that list. Ladies, if you lovelovelove huge lashes, you cannot be without this beauty! The hourglass-shaped brush has super soft bristles that lift, separate, and lengthen to create a true false lash effect; while the intense black color brings loads of attention to your lashes! I have gone through more tubes of this than I can count, and will forever recommend it! DEFINITE RE-BUY.

The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge {$6.99} was the first beauty blender I ever bought, so I'll always have mad love for it; but over the past few months I've been experimenting with different shapes and densities, and I've found that this one just doesn't compare to a lot of others on the market. I prefer more of a dual-tipped construction that has a firmer feel to it {which I believe blends and conceals under the eyes better}. This one features a flat side that I don't even use; and is too soft for my liking. NOT a re-buy.

True story: I bought Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in BELLINI {$9.98} because I liked the shade name; but the color was stunning, so it quickly became a staple in my makeup bag. This one is high-gloss with a peachy pink hue that is just gorgeous on - especially when paired with smoky eyes. My one qualm {and this is a dealbreaker}: I found that it really dried out my lips after a time. Not where my lips were chapped, but where they felt like they needed a ton of hydration. Not cool IMO. NOT a re-buy.

Have you tried any of these products before? Thoughts?

I love these posts! It's great to see what worked and what didn't. Yeah, that lip gloss would not be good if it dried out my lips.
