Loreal Voluminous Noir Balm Mascara

Loreal Voluminous Noir Balm Mascara Review

I’ve been in need of a new mascara for a while and decided to pick this one up to try out. It’s supposed to be a volumizing and (I guess) moisturizing formula, hence having “Balm” in the name. These are my thoughts based on a couple weeks of wearing it so far.

Essence Contouring Duo

Essence Contouring Duo Review

The Essence Contouring Duo is one of a few new things I picked up in December. I’m always on the lookout for new contouring products because I feel like there aren’t that many out there that fit what I’m looking for. So many of them are yellow or orange toned against my complexion and end up being bronzers on me.

Essence Taupe It Up Eyeshadow Palette

Essence Taupe It Up Eyeshadow Palette Review

Essence recently came out with these little monochromatic six pan palettes. It looks like there are currently 8 of them, all of them with 3 mattes and 3 shimmers. The Taupe It Up one having lots of grey in it seemed most interesting to me.

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #6

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #6

More of a dramatic, semi-experimental look with the Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette. I really didn’t like how this one came out but sometimes I post things and others seem to like them, so here it is.

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #5

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #5

Here’s a simple light and bright look you can get out of the Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette. It’s mainly a sheer frosty shade all over the lid with some slight definition in the crease and a soft winged liner.

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #4

Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Palette Look #4

This look is mostly matte using a mix of the warmer and cooler shades with one shimmer on the outer lid. I tried something I normally don’t do which is using a deeper shade on only the center part of the lower lashline and brightening both the inner and outer corners. I think it created an interesting shape I’d try again with different colors/textures.
