MAC Fluidline (3 g / 0.1 US oz) in Blacktrack is a pot gel liner in a true jet matte black. In the swatch, I applied one layer using a firm medium angled brush. Since the gel does dry quickly, it is best to do one eye at a time to achieve the desired look. The liner doesn’t skip, flake, leave patches, or crack after another layer.

CP Gel Liners are a close dupe for the Stila Smudge Sticks. On YT, I’ve seen gurus use the liners mainly for tight and water lining (the liner is so thin). However, I still use it as a regular liner even though I can’t make a full thick line.

Finish

  • matte

Shade

  • black (not intense but medium)

Type

  • retractable

 

Colourpop Gel Liner ($5) and also comes in a pot.

Colourpop Creme Gel in Dope Taupe ($6)

Benefits

  • Very creamy
  • Dries down to a powder
  • Harsh lines are easily blended and soften without having to add other products to lighten.
  • Stays put with zero fading (it’s not waterproof).

I have zero to complain about with the CP Gel Brow. They also have a matching pencils ($5).

I think I might start randomly featuring different underrated brands. Due to differing tastes in colors, I’m not going to feature my favorite shades from each recommendation. My top underrated brands are Colourpop, theBalm, NYX, and Stila.

  Zoya 2017 Charming Collection is 6 nail polish (3 creams • 3 micro-sparkle).

Creams- Jordan, Abby, and Tina

 

Micro-shimmers Millie, Lacey, and Amira

 

 

  Violette Lipstick

Faves are Millie, Lacey, and Abby. None of the polishes gave me problems during application. The creams took one good coat with fast drying time. The sheer micro-shimmers needed about two. I’ve been getting into purple lipsticks,  Violette is so fresh and springy.

The PhotoBalm Powder Foundation acts a filter designed for photos to cover imperfections. I couldn’t swatch it because on me there really wasn’t that much to swatch. PhotoBalm is very light weight, smooth, and blends in perfectly with my other foundations. I noticed the powder did even out my skin and cover minor imperfections. PhotoBalm isn’t exactly full coverage but more medium and can double as a setting powder.

   Sideline

(I didn’t realize it was swatched too light on my hand)

  Play by Play

 

High Strung

 

Running Late

 

Sideline, Play by Play, and High Strung are metallic and Running Late is matte. Compared to their Super Shock Shadows, the pressed powder is truer to color even though they are bold. The formula of the metallics and matte were not powdery, had minimal fallout, and excellent on the pigmentation. I love wearing metallic shadows. Most metallic shadows I’ve used get dry, are hard to blend out, and I often end up spreading them all over. CP’s metallics did not do any of that. Running Late also did a very good job for a matte shadow. On the brush, I only need to swipe them twice for added intensity.  The shadows are very close to a dupe for the ABH Singles.

The pressed shadows are sold individually. There are a few premade palettes for ($18).

Colourpop has new tie dye highlighters. Tie Dye highlighter feels exactly like the Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter on steroids. Whipped is described as satin, tie dye, pearlized finish in the golds and bronze shades and more towards medium skin tones. In person, it has microglitter with a slight pink/lavender hue.  It stays on for a fair amount of time. On me, it lasted a few hours. Even though the formula is not pressed, it is super silky.  I think this is one of the silkiest highlighters I’ve touched.

 

  Whipped is sold individually and in a set.
