I love doing these 3-in-1 reviews! It is a great way to show you a review of 3 similar products that are comparable and might work the same. Today it is up to contour and highlight palettes from the drugstore. These have been a standard item in many high end make up lines, but lately, budget brands have started putting out more and more contour palettes. But which one to get?! I decided to try some. This 3-in-1 review will deal with contouring palettes from Maybelline, Catrice and W7.
W7 Hollywood Bronze & Glow bronzer & highlight palette
Catrice Prime and Fine Professional Contouring Palette 010 Ashy Radiance
Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette 01 Light Medium
I don’t necessarily believe in trends, make up trends in particular. From strong contours to perfect brows: when I do my make up I like to keep things fairly simple and basic. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to try some products that are center to the hype. One such hyped product? Banana powder: a (often loose) yellow powder that should set your under eye make up and brighten and highlight the triangle under your eye. I tried out a budget and more high end version.
Which banana powder would be better? And how would it work on my skin?
I’m always looking for new nail polish to try out and especially when it’s cheap I’m always curious to see what it does. I bought these polishes in a 2 for €5 euro deal at my local budget store. Glitter nail polishes are difficult to get right: they usually take a gazillion layers before they cover all of your nail and so it is hard to achieve the look you see in the bottle. Not with these lovelies though! Let’s have a look shall we?
I took this pictures with my phone as it photographs nicely when using flash, at least much nicer than with my trusty point and shoot. As you can tell these all look super glittery.You can see the colors better on the picture below:
There’s a glittery green with multicolored (gold/ yellow & blue) on the left. Followed by fuchsia, blue, dusty rose and purple with pink, red and blue sparkles. All the way on the right is a bright turquoise color which is easily my favorite. Let’s have a look at some swatches shall we:
Turquoise, Green with multicolored glitter, Blue,
Purple with multicolored glitter, fuchsia and dusty rose.
Look how gorgeous?! And this is only 2 coats of each polish. For a glitter nail polish that is some amazing coverage. With most other glitter polishes you only get this result after 3 – 4 sometimes even 5 coats. Dare I say I’m impressed? Yup I am. Only down side is that the polish is on the thick side and quite goopy, but I’m guessing that’s why you get them this opaque.
These retail at your local Op = Op voordeelwinkel (or likeminded stores). The brand is W7 and they are 2.75 each or 2 for 5 euros.
