often the best appeal days are the ones where you don’t really try at all. Today I wanted to play with the new It Cosmetics universal Contouring palette for face as well as Body ($40), however I didn’t want to spend a lot more than 30 seconds on each eye. I likewise decided to channel my inner Pebbles Flintstone. Days like these are made for bold lips. It’s called deflecting!
Anyway, while It Cosmetics has created quite a charming palette, I find the brand’s advertising description kind of off putting. The mention of plastic surgery as well as fillers sets the wrong tone for me as well as makes me feel like the goal with contouring must be to actually change your features instead of improve them. Of course, there are times when the goal is to modification facial features, however I think for your typical cosmetic consumer (not makeup artist), that’s not what it’s about.
From It Cosmetics:
“Developed with plastic surgeons, the leading experts in contouring as well as aesthetics, each powder shade is formulated with proprietary best Lighting™ technology to simulate real facial contouring as well as supply a foolproof alternate to fillers. While the four contour shades take in light as well as lessen the areas to which you apply them, the two highlighters improve features you want to pull forward, creating the appearance of a lot more volume. Talc-free, as well as best for all skin types as well as skin tones, these shades are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk as well as peptides to blend effortlessly as well as provide smooth, natural-looking protection that lasts all day.”
I just don’t want to be made to think that there’s something wrong with my face. I have to look at this mug every day! makeup is heaps of fun as well as makes me happy, however I really try to only wear it to reveal myself, not conceal my insecurities. Also, I’m pretty sure that best Lighting™ technology is, like, matte vs. shimmer powders.
It Cosmetics universal Contouring palette for face as well as Body ($40)
Apart from my philosophical grievances with this palette, the formula is soft, pigmented, as well as soo simple to blend. I’ve been using it with this Contour & Highlighting Brush ($34.50 and also from It Cosmetics), as well as it does pretty much all the work for me. There is some dust that kicks up when loading up your brush, as well as the packaging is silver cardboard. It gets messy; I got contour powder in the highlighter pans a lot more than once.

Top: Soft Contour, Light Contour, Matte highlight Bottom: medium Contour, Deep Contour, brilliance Highlight
Overall, this palette runs too warm for my skin tone, however I can pull off the highlight shades as well as soft contour. often I dip into the deep contour shade for one more kick of dimension, however the two middle shades are far too orange to do anything for me except make me look like an oompa loompa.
The two highlight shades work well on me, though the matte shade is really just my skin tone as well as fantastic for all over my face. The brilliance highlight has got some severe glimmer without being overt glitter, as well as gives off a wet look, particularly if you spritz your brush with some repair +.
For my eyes, I went in with the Deep Contour shade (middle shade, bottom row) as well as just packed it on as well as blended it out with a huge fluffy brush. I’ve been really into smearing a single shade all over the lid as well as calling it a day. I’m kinda lazy, as well as it’s kinda chic. The deep shade worked really well as eyeshadow! Days later, I’m still wearing this look, as well as even adding the lighter shades to the crease. I will say — if you’re using these as shadows, use a primer first. I didn’t, as well as I think my ideal eye looks a little creased towards the inner corner.
There are a couple other things on my face that I need to tell you about.
Jeffree star Velour liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Blood ($18)
I bought Unicorn Blood a couple weeks back as well as haven’t taken it off since. whatever you’ve heard about Jeffree Star’s Velour liquid Lipstick formula is true. Je to fantastické. It is a true liquid lipstick — the consistency is very thin as well as opaque. You absolutely need to provide it a great shake before use (as with a lot of liquid cosmetics) just to get the ingredients balanced; otherwise, it can go on a bit uneven.
I generally lean apathetic towards product scents as well as put up with some I’m not crazy about since the formula is great otherwise. I try to steer away from the vanilla cupcake/buttercream frosting scent that is so prevalent on the market, which brought me here. Jeffree Star’s newer shades, as well as some of his cult status shades, are root beer scented and…I don’t hate it. It iSned můj preferovaný (Jsem v pořádku s vůní barvy. Dokonce i na rtech.), Nicméně jeho osvěžující. Dokonce voní trochu sycené. Nejsem ani si opravdu jistý, co naznačuji tím, že to voní, ale to voní jako kořenové pivo ideální, než si vezmete SIP.
Unicorn Blood je vaše tradiční rziová tmavě červená. Ještě nemám nosit, stejně jako nebyl dotázán, co mám na sobě nejméně pětkrát. Můžete dostat své tlapky na to jednou každý modrý měsíc na webových stránkách Jeffree Star. Stojí to za to.
Mac kosmetika v extrémní dimenzi vodotěsné řasenka ($ 22)
Mac právě vydal vodotěsnou verzi jejich v extrémní kóty řasenky, stejně jako jsem o tom, stejně jako ne jen proto, že to odpovídá stínu tealů, že politiky mého života. Je to všechno velmi uspokojivé; prodlouží, zesiluje objem, stejně jako drží kudrlinku. Není to šmouha, vločka, nebo vás bude plakat černými slzami.
Jediná upozornění pro mě přichází s aplikátorem. Líbí se mi zaoblený nápad pro nižší řasy, vnější i vnitřní rohy, přidání mnohem více produktů do kořene, stejně jako oddělení určité skupiny řas najednou. Nemám rád, že je to silikon. Při použití, pokud se aplikátor dotýká kořene mých řas jen tak, že je naprosto šílence mé oči, stejně jako pak mám slzavé oči po zbytek dne, stejně jako často řasenka kdekoli od zavřela oči před tím, než to může suchý. #Alergyseason.
Ale je to vodotěsné, takže přinejmenším zůstane dal během mých neohrabaných epizod!
