I am not a huge fan of liquid eyeshadow. Creams I can get down with as they give you a bit of play time. A liquid eyeshadow however, can be difficult to apply as it usually sets and then just won’t budge. Especially, if it’s a super colorful or smokey shade, it is quite difficult to create a pretty diffused look. However, Essence came out with these metal shock liquid eyeshadows some time ago and they make for some of the prettiest affordable glitter eyeshadows I have ever seen.

In the summer, I tend to change up my makeup routine quite a bit. Last year around this time, I became obsessed with trying liquid highlighters. And so I acquired a few which I have been rotating in and out of my routine for a while now to test them out. One of those liquid highlighters that I was itching to try were the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquids. I bought the lightest shade of course and these are my thoughts.

When it comes to brows Catrice can be a little bit late on the uptake. Nevertheless, they did finally decide to put out a brow pomade. Years after the pomade craze, but this isn’t just a pomade. It is a 2-in-1 pomade and concealer: one side is a brow product, the other camouflage. You can probably see how they are trying to play into the carved out brow trend. Better late then never of course, but with many pomades already on the market, how does this compare?

We all know the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. And as any beauty brand that has struck gold, Too Faced has been rolling out the sequels like there is no. tomorrow. The latest installment? The White Chocolate Bar. If you think: well that doesn’t look very appealing to me, I think this palette isn’t for everyone. However, if you’re a fair girl like me and you love some shimmers, then this may be of interest.

I think I found my new favorite eye makeup remover! For years, I have been using the Garnier eye makeup remover and have not been convinced to change course from it since. Not until I found this. This is the Simple eye makeup remover and it is marvelous.

Cream products are never really of interest to me, unless it is summer. For the warmer weather I love trying out liquid and cream cheek products that I usually stay away from for the rest of the year. Since we’re nearing summer once again, I have slowly been busting out those products again. The first product I started trying more was this holographic highlight stick by Essence.

When I first wanted to try Kat Von D shadows, these metal crush eyeshadows had just been released. Since then, the brand has released these shadows in many different forms. There was the Metal Matte palette of course, but they now also do the metal mini. With that new release, these singles are now being phased out. However, since the idea of that palette is to mimic this formula, but in a palette form, I thought I would review these singles to give my take on this quite stunning formula.
