The Face Shop Designing Eyebrow Pencil | Swatches and Review

I feel like I’m never going back to Sephora for brow products ever again because I found out great ones from Korean brands. It’s not the first time I’m trying out The Face Shop’s Designing Eyebrow Pencil so I had a pretty good amount of time to actually try it and compare it to other brow products. Brows are the one thing I always put on because if not, I know I would look like a 15-year-old boy. I finally moved on from the Benefit Goof Proof and trying out something new! Let’s go on and have a closer look at the pencil. Note that I will mostly compare it to the Goof Proof just for reference.

PACKAGING

So it has double ended plastic packaging like the usual. A lot less of quality compared to the other brow products I’ve tried. I notice that the caps crack easily at about 3 months of use. The product is on the other end and the spoolie on the other. It has 0.3 grams which is just about the same as the Goof Proof which has 0.34 grams.

PRODUCT ITSELF

Texture

It’s a lot stiffer and waxy than others so one stroke would just give you a light shade of colour. Basically, it doesn’t have much pigment pay-off and not creamy at all (which is a not a bad thing for brow products!) With that being said, I notice that I use a heavier hand when using this compared to when I’m using the Goof Proof. I like making the inner/front parts of my brows lighter than the rest of the brows. This product is perfect for that because it delivers the perfect amount of product without being too heavy.

I would say that the texture is a lot like the Anastasia Brow Whiz which is less creamy that the Goof Proof.

Colours

top to bottom : 04, 03, 02

It only has 5 colours. I picked up 02 Gray Brown, 03 Brown, and 04 Black Brown only because I’m not sure what kind of brown I am. Lol. The colours are very close to each other so I don’t think I’ll mind using one or the other interchangeably.

Longevity

It stays long enough throughout the day. Wouldn’t say it’s budge-proof or waterproof though.

Shape

New tip 

Used tip

This is probably the only thing that’s a bit of a letdown. Once you use it after the first time, it loses its sharpness. So naturally, it’s going to have a rounded, circular tip. That shape makes it a struggle to draw a defined line. I find that I always have to wipe off product just to get my desired sharp eyebrow tail.

Price

A whopping C$6! That’s affordable compared to the Goof Proof which is C$32 and Anastasia’s Brow Definer which is C$30!

 

PROS

  • Waxy and hard
  • Buildable pigment
  • Very Affordable (C$6)
  • Long lasting

CONS

  • Low-quality packaging; cracks easily
  • Shape of the tip makes it hard to draw defined lines

 

I think I have a new favourite! For its price? I think this beats all other brow products!

Hope this was helpful!

L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation Review

Foundations are probably my least favourite makeup products. I rarely invest in an expensive foundation and usually tend to stick to the drugstore. I think I’ve only finished one or two bottles of it in my life because I’ve always had the mindset that foundations will make me look too “makeupy” and it’s only for special occasions . Clearly, I haven’t ventured into hunting the perfect foundation for my skin type.

Luckily I found a gem in the drugstore. The hype is real and I am LOVING this foundation!

dsc03890

The L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation is a great foundation for us dry skin type girls. It smoothes over those dry patches and has a glowy finish. It’s the bomb.com! I’m using this foundation almost every day and I rarely do that with foundations. That’s already saying a lot about this product! It is indeed lightweight as it claims and it doesn’t weigh down my face like other foundations. I would say it feels almost like a BB or CC cream but with more coverage. Speaking of coverage, this foundation is impressively buildable. It could go on sheer to a medium coverage.

From the picture above, you could already tell that the consistency is very watery. I’ve heard somewhere that watery foundations are better applied with a brush. I personally use a Beauty Blender to apply it and it has been amazing. I’m using the shade 203 Nude Beige. I would say that the longevity is pretty good but I’m not the one to judge fairly because I touch my face all the time.

PROS:

  • Medium Coverage
  • Buildable
  • Super blendable
  • Doesn’t cling to dry patches
  • Glowy finish
  • Lasts all day
  • Super lightweight
  • For dry to combination skin.
  • Travel-friendly squeeze tube

CONS:

  • Pricey for drugstore (C$16.99)
  • Not for oily skin type

I highly recommend this foundation for people with dry skin! Has any of you tried this yet??

Bite Beauty Multistick | Swatches and Review

Who doesn’t love makeup that does everything? Lazy girls, like me, would be all over this product because it does everything and it actually WORKS! The Bite Beauty Multisticks are cream to powder finishes that are suitable for eyes, lips, and cheeks. This product is aimed to achieve a monochromatic look with only using one product!

They’re available in 18 colours but I only have 6 to swatch for you guys.

EDIT: See me use the Multusicks in action here

This post will go over: Detailed review and how I use it, Pro’s & Con’s, Eye-lip-cheek swatches, side by side swatches of all 6 colours

The packaging is identical to the Buttercream lipsticks which are flat, cylindrical and MAGNETIC! I know, makeup addicts love the magnetic packaging and the satisfaction that comes with every click!

These bullets were shot in a very hot Toronto day so excuse the sweat on these bullets. If you ever experience this, just pop them in the fridge for a few hours and the sweat will disappear. I do recommend you don’t use them yet when they’re hot and sweaty because they might break off. I did it once, broke a lipstick, then cried. Lol

Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious

Mascaras are one of my essentials when it comes to makeup. I have tried a lot of mascaras from the drugstore that I think it’s safe to say that I am a mascara junkie. I did a review on comparing and reviewing 8 mascaras altogether here.

Maybelline has the best mascaras in my opinion and they did even better when they released the original Lash Sensational (the pink version of this). Not expecting anything, I tried the black version of the Lash Sensational and was even more impressed.
