NYX Micro Brow Pencil
The NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow pencil is often mentioned as the dupe for the ever-so-popular Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz. Similar in design, both have a spoolie on one end and a retractable pencil on the other. Since my brows are microbladed I decided to try out the NYX dupe since I figured my brows didn’t need such a high end product to fill them in.
Would I repurchase? Definitely! It’s less than a third of the cost of the ABH Brow Wiz and works just as well. (Plus – Shoppers Optimum Points because I’m a little old lady collecting points for a rainy day.)
ColourPop No Filter Concealer
As any of my closest friends will tell you I am smitten with everything ColourPop launches, including their $6 USD concealer. I primarily use concealer to brighten up my under eyes, bridge of my nose and chin. The formula itself was smooth and I liked that it came with such a large applicator, however it did oxide on me throughout the day.
Would I repurchase? I already have two back-up tubes, however I would buy them again in a lighter shade. The shades I bought were my skin tone making them ideal for concealing, not so much for brightening.
Milk Makeup Blur Stick
Would I repurchase? Probably not. A stick primer may be better suited for others, but I felt like it was impossible to get an even application with ease with the formula packaged the way it was.
Becca First Light Priming Filter Face Primer
Would I repurchase? I wouldn’t repurchase this item. It was only so-so and I can’t imagine it ever being my preferred primer. At a pricey $46 CAD it’s not worth its steep price tag in my opinion.
Dior Extase Mascara
Would I repurchase it? Absolutely not. It was way too expensive for a mascara that performs as meh as drugstore mascaras. It provided no separation, lift or length but rather made my lashes a clumpy mess (look at that brush). I’m also pretty sure that I couldn’t buy this formula even if I wanted to. I couldn’t find it on the Sephora website and I’m pretty sure it’s discontinued.
