They’re Real Blue Mascara ($24) is a colored mascara that leaves behind a blue tint  while giving the lashes volume.

The brush is not those fat thistly brushes I’m used to but it does pick up a good amount of product.

The color is not a shocking bright blue. When the mascara dries down, the blue tint is there without over powering the eye look. The formula improved. When I touched my lashes, they didn’t feel hard or brittle.

Overall, I’m very pleased with this colored mascara. They need to come out with more shades like purple or forest green.

3 ($5) is a glitter finish. My swatch is just picking up the cool-brown base. 3 is loaded with glitter. It’s not the hard chunky type and more fine. I’ve been getting more into cooler toned shades, so 3 is perfect.

Product Description: The original, empty magnetic makeup palette with a clear window that can hold all of your favorite makeup in one easy place. Customize, simplify, and organize makeup of any brand in one sleek palette while downsizing bulky packaging and making touch-ups on the go a breeze. Remove eyeshadow pans, blushes, powders, bronzers even lipsticks and concealers from other palettes using the included metal spatula and instruction guide. Use the included metal stickers to magnetize non-metal pans instantly.

 

The actual Z-palette brand’s origin I know nothing about. All I know is they are widely popular for empty palettes.

Details: comes with 11 metal magnets for product pans that are not magnetic. The magnets are extremely firm and stay put until they are removed from the pan. The circle magnets fit the Colourpop shadows perfectly. I don’t know what I’m going to do with the small square magnets in the corner. The palettes come in baby, small, dome, and double sized.

I don’t have a major single pan collection nor do I depot. The baby size is perfect to hold my Colourpop single shadows (they are already magnetic. I wish I knew before I used the magnet circles with them). As I was playing around with the palette, the palette also held my Urban Decay and Buxom single shadows perfectly (I didn’t need to depot them). The palette is slim and lightweight. If I plan on traveling with this, it will definitely lighten my load.

If anyone is not a major depotter or has a massive individual pan collection, the baby size Z-palette is the best way to get started

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).

  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.
