Frendsbeauty had an amazing sale a few days ago so, I snagged some Viseart palettes which arrived today!
I received a little gift bag that contained 2 samples of Stilazzi matte blushes, some stickers, a Stila waterproof liquid eye liner in intense black and an Anthony Instant Fix Oil Control.
The eyeshadow palettes that I purchased:
I had such a hard time trying to decide which one to get because they both seemed so pretty so, I decided to take advantage of the sale plus they are both out of stock via Sephora. I hope Viseart lives up to the high expectations that I have for it. I have heard so many great things about the quality of their make up.
Excited to try these out and then I’ll share my thoughts sooner than later!
I have never really applied under eye concealer because:
- Many formulas were too oily-caused acne.
- Some were too thick-clogged up pores-acne, were more prone to looking cakey and showing creases.
- I don’t have dark under eye circles that are too noticeable.
However, I found a great deal on Benefit’s Fake Up recently.
I had seen a friend with a lot of under eye hyperpigmentation apply Fake Up and the results were impressive! So, I decided to try it out for myself in the shade medium.
I swiped it on directly in a triangle shape under my eye and then I used my Hakuhodo J214R brush to blend it in.
And…I loved it!
- So easy to blend right in, lightweight and silky plus crease free!
- Was not irritating.
- Did not cause any acne.
- Brightened up the under eye area, definitely made me look awake!
Some beneficial ingredients:
- Vitamin E-moisturizing.
- Apple seed extract-helps conceal dark circles.
Can be purchased at:
My skin type: Combination. (Oily T-Zone.)
I have always been a user or Urban Decay’s Original Primer and it has given me the results I want.
- No oily lids.
- No smudging.
- No budging-long time wear.
- And, enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.
Ulta recently had a sale where the Too Faced Shadow Insurance was $10 instead of the normal $20. Yep, literally half the price. And, that’s when I decided to test out the product.
The results that I got:
- No oily lids.
- No smudging or budging.
- And, of course enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.
Both products gave me the results that I was seeking and left me satisfied. Now you might wonder what the difference between the two is.
Price: Both are $20.
Size: Too Faced-0.35 oz vs Urban Decay-0.37 oz, a little more product but not too much of a difference.
Texture: I liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better than the Primer Potion because it was more velvety. The Primer Potion has more of a thicker and harder to spread formula. They both leave my lids matte though. But, I would say that the Shadow Insurance is definitely easier to spread which actually makes me use less product.
Longevity:The Primer Potion improved shadow/liner color by just a little bit when several hours had passed, it was not a significant enough difference for me though-at all.
Preference: Either one because they both do about the same job but I definitely liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better so, if I really had to pick-Too Faced Shadow Insurance but texture and the importance of texture is really a personal preference.
Both can be purchased at: Sephora, Ulta, Urban Decay, Too Faced and many more places.
Urban Decay is having a sale. 20 % off!
