Flower Win Some, Rouge Some Crème Blush (Peach Blossom) | Review + Swatches


This cream blush by Drew Barrymore's makeup line "Flower" retails for $8 and has converted me to cream blushes. Flower claims on their website that this blush:
  • Conforms to skin for a soft “powder”-like finish
  • Blush transforms into a soft velvet veil on cheeks
  • Deposits gentle color for a healthy glow
  • Perfect for layering to build your desired look

I swear to god I found out that Flower claimed these about this blush after I wrote my review, and I am impressed and amazed that these claims are actually spot on and not just marketing ploys. The shade I have is Peach Blossom. It has a great texture (not sticky at all) and it's so easy to apply and blend. Definitely a favorite!

CoverGirl Clump Crusher LashBlast Mascara (Very Black) | Review


This mascara by CoverGirl retails for $7-$9 and claims to give your lashes 200% more volume with absolutely no clumps. It actually produces minimal clumps and is a decent lengthening and volumizing mascara, but there's one thing that keeps it from being the best.

Real Techniques Starter Set | Review

base shadow - accent - pixel-point eyeliner - deluxe crease - brow

This versatile brush set by Real Techniques was designed by Pixiwoo half Samantha Chapman, and it retails for $18. It is relatively affordable and it's great quality! Included is 5 brushes (base shadow, accent, pixel-point eyeliner, deluxe crease, and brow) and a case for travel or for display. This isn't the best eye brush set, especially for smaller eyes, but the brushes can be re-purposed in multiple ways into your makeup routine, specifically concealer.
