The Balm Mary-Dew Manizer – Review!

We all know the original right? The Mary-Lou Manizer is a classic and a cult highlighter in the makeup community. Famous long before highlighter was such a big deal as it is now, and it can still compete with new releases today.

IMG_20190516_142707_621.jpg

So after having this classic for years and year The Balm decided to make a liquid version of the famous highlighter. I love the original Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm. It was one of my first highlighters, so it’s kind of special to me. I was curios to test out the liquid version because I do like a good liquid highlighter as well as a powder one.

The packaging is a thick tube. Similar to Tarte Shape Tape in size but the  design is very different. The uni-carton is the classic style from The Balm with who I assume is Mary-Lou (or Dew) herself. The tube itself is clear with black prints.

IMG_20190516_142634_361.jpg

The shade is quite similar to the original on the skin even though it looks darker and a bit more peachy on the swatch, but I find the finish to be quite different. While the original powder formula is more intense, the Dew-Manizer is more subtle and gives a very nice glow from within finish (again, a bit different from what it looks like on the swatch, where the liquid looks more intense). It is on the more subtle side, so if you like the very intense formulas this may be a bit understated for you, but I really enjoy a nice natural dewy finish once in a while.

IMG_20190516_142729_949.jpg

I have used this as a primer. I like using liquid highlighters (like the Cover FX drops or the Iconic London illuminating drops) as primer. As long as they are not glittery I think it gives a nice glow underneath foundation. You could off course also mix a bit of it with foundation, but I think this one in particular is a bit subtle for that use.

IMG_20190516_142650_162.jpg

On the cheeks and high points of the face on top of foundation it gives a very natural, glowy look. If you want that dewy wet-look but still want the result to be quite natural than this one is a great product. The wand also makes it very easy to control where you place the product and completely mess free.

Do I prefer this over the original one? No. But that does not mean it’s not a good product, I simply just prefer powder formulas over liquid. With that said I can absolutely see myself reaching a lot for this when I want a good, natural and dewy look so thumbs up for this highlighter!

Have you tried this yourself? Or have you tried the iconic original?

Makeup Revolution Reloanded Iconic Division – Review & Swatches!

Not to long ago I posted a review about another re-loaded palette, the Velvet Rose, and gave if a good review. For the price tag I was very happy with how it performed and could absolutely see myself reaching for it again and again. Especially the mattes was a big hit for me.

IMG_20190515_174059_827.jpg

So, I guess I don’t have to say that expectations were pretty high with this one too. Obviously this palette is a dupe for Anastasia Subculture, and a pretty well known dupe I would say. This palette seems to be “the dupe” people mention the most. I had hoping this would be like a more easy going version of Subculture. I less pigmented version you could use also on busy days. Because I love Subculture and it’s color scheme, but it’s not a palette I would pull out if I was in a hurry.

IMG_20190515_174038_729.jpg

I did the makeup looks I posted on Monday to try out the palette. That’s what I always do before a review so I know that I have tested every shadow on my eyes in action. This time I was left disappointing. I had such a hard time doing those four looks, and to be honest I had so much trouble with the palette that it was more frustrating than fun to do them.

IMG_20190515_174300_445.jpg

The first issue I had was that some of the matte shades had a really hard time both blending out and applying evenly. I really had to pack on the color and blend several times to try to make it look even but it was as if the eyeshadow just didn’t want to stick to some parts of my lids. It made it close to impossible to get a seamless blend, and things just started looking very muddy after a while. The pigmentation was not that great either, and since I had to try to build up the colors, and go over and over with eyeshadow to make the blend look decent, things just started to muddy up.

IMG_20190515_174138_826.jpg

I guess for a very simple eye look, you won’t have such a problem. If you for instance just want to throw one of the lighter shades in the crease and a little bit of one of the shimmers on the lid you will probably find this palette just find. But simple looks does not really demand much of the quality of the shadows either. With more intricate looks the lack of quality became very apparent with these unfortunately.

IMG_20190515_174211_602.jpg

There are 3 shimmer shadows in this palette. One white/pink duochrome, one green and one brown. The brown is fine. Not the most overwhelmingly stunning shimmer shade, but it does the job. The two other one is again a bit lackluster. They really need some build-up and preferably a spritz of something on the brush to show up properly.

IMG_20190515_174119_051.jpg

Although I did like the Velvet Rose palette enough to see myself picking up another Re-Loaded palette in the future, the Iconic Division is not one I would recommend. I enjoy the original Subculture by far, even though that’s not what I pull out to do a look with on busy mornings. Even if you don’t compare this dupe to the original and just think about the quality of this palette alone, it’s just not good. Even the cheap price considered, I don’t think this one is worth it. I haven’t been as unhappy with a palette as I have been with this one for years. And I do try a lot of palettes!

Have you tried this palette? Did you like it, or was is a miss for you too?

Maybelline Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder – Review!

I have always wanted to try the Maybelline FitMe loose powder but for some reason I can’t find it anywhere in Norway, or in any online store that ships to Norway so for some reason it seems very hard to get a hold of, and I never had the chance to try it out.

IMG_20190514_152616_211.jpg

But when I saw this I was immediately tempted. After all Maybelline did a seemingly great loose powder already and could probably make another one.

This powder comes in a simple clear plastic container, with a black lid. Not too exciting or luxurious. It looks like drugstore, and it looks like Maybelline. Make what you will out of that. But, at least the jar has a sifter so it’s a little less messy than it potentially could be although loose powders always are a bit messy.

IMG_20190514_152659_825.jpg

The powder is soooo fine milled. I really like how it looks on the skin. It seems to have a smoothing effect, and is very mattifying. It also keeps my face matte for almost a full day at work, which I would say is impressive. Since it’s translucent it’s also invisible.

IMG_20190514_152635_609.jpg

Since it’s smoothing and very light weight I really like using it to set my under-eye concealer and it works wonderfully for that purpose alone, but I also like to use it to set my face. However, I only use it all over my face when I actually really want a matte finish (except from highlighter off course, I always have my highlighter on).

IMG_20190514_152724_686.jpg

The translucency means naturally that this powder does not add any extra coverage. This combined with the light weight formula makes it very natural looking! If you are looking for a translucent setting powder this one was a winner for me!

But as I always say; A bit of glitter never hurt anyone.

Have you tried this famous Subculture dupe? What are your thoughts?

Stay tuned if you want to know what I think, because I will spill all my thoughts on this palette in Wednesdays review!

Stash or Trash #2 – Recap!

Time to go through the products in my second stash or trash post to sum up what to keep and what to get rid of. I do these series to go through some of my stash I haven’t been using in a while and possably do a bit of decluttering.

IMG_20190226_154807_975.jpg

Here is an overview of all the products I added this round. I pick out 10 products I am not sure if I like, haven’t used in a while or just forgotten about to see if I will be able to get rid of some or if I possibly find a new favorite. Digging around in your old collection is so much fun too!

IMG_20190226_154959_615.jpg

First let’s start with some things I can se myself putting in the bin. The Dior Diorshow Mascara in shade 258 is a beautiful blue mascara, and originally it was nothing wrong with this mascara (the Diorshow mascaras are great!) but it’s completely dried out now and no use to me anymore. Instead I recently made and order with the blue Colourpop mascara, so I will happily add another blue one to my collection.

The Physicians  Formula Shimmer Strips Extreme Shimmer Kohl Kajal + Liquid Liner Trio “Glam Nude” is no good. The liner is not that pigmented and applied very uneven. So this one was also easy to let go of. I don’t need old products that don’t work!

IMG_20190226_154932_744.jpg

The  Cream Crush Long Lasting Color Eyeshadow pot was also a good product (I still have the product in other colors so I obviously like it) but at this time it is a bit on the dry side and I just never reach for this either. I am getting rid of this one too. Look at me decluttering stuff! (I am actually really bad at decluttering).

The Oriflame Giordani Gold Impressionism Eye Shadow Pencil in “Deep Emerald” and  “Sea Sapphire” I decided to keep. They are so so stunning, and the colors are very rich, and the pencils are really creamy. I had these for many many years but I never used them. Parts of the problem I think is that I kept them among my single eyeshadows, a drawer I rarely remember to even open so I just never think about these. But since these pencils not only work as eyshadows, but also as eyeliners I decided to keep them among my other colorful eye pencils and got a lot more use out of them. Besides they look stunning on the lower lash line so these are keepers!

IMG_20190226_154903_948.jpg

The Kiko Long Lasting Color Lip Marker in the shade107 (top) and 105 (bottom) on the other hand I am getting rid of. I realized why I never use them. They are patchy on the lips and makes them feel too dry. I tried using them with a gloss on top but even then they look streaky and uneven. Both of them are ready to be binned! Kiko makes plenty of great lipsticks so no use hanging on to these anymore. I don’t want streaky lips anyway.

IMG_20190226_155022_699.jpg

The Everyday Mineral Blush in “Memphis Rose” I thought would be too dark for me, but it actually looks really pretty. I was surprised by how much I liked it applied. On the other hand I don’t really think I would miss it, and I think if I put it back in my collection I would just forget about it again. A loose powder blush must be really something special for me to be bothered using, and even though this is pretty I will declutter this one as well.

The  NARS Orgasm Illuminator I have been using quite a bit lately. It gives a gorgeous natural flush with the iconic orgasm shade, and it’s such an easy product to work with. This one I can see myself reaching into quite a bit especially since I enjoy cream products a whole lot more lately, especially for summer. So this one can stay!

IMG_20190226_154838_881.jpg

Lastly, the product I struggled the most to decide upon. The NYX Ulitmate Bright palette was a well used palette a few years ago, and for being drugstore it’s not bad at all. But as my collection have been growing a lot over the years I’ve gotten so many great colorful mattes that I never reach into this. After using this a few times I realize I probably won’t reach much into it in the future either. The pinks and purples are not as good as I would like them to be. The main reason why I want to keep this palette is that I really love the lavender and turquoise shade. But after taking a quick look into my collection I realize I do have very similar shades I would rather use. So even though this brings back good old memories I decided to let go of it.

So to do a quick summary I decided to declutter 7 items and keep 3. Not bad at all!

Altogether in this series the counts are:

  • Decluttered: 12
  • Kept: 7
  • Makeup artifact box: 1

To clarify the last bullet point I made a box where I can store products that I don’t see myself using but for some reason or the other have a collectors value (mainly for being old and limited edition) and I want to keep these products in a separate place. The one item in the box is a very old and almost unknown Urban Decay palette I decided to keep during my first recap of stash or trash .

Hope you enjoy this series, and I am excited to soon start the third round!

Throwback Thursday Makeup Looks – NYX Ultimate Brights Eyeshadow Palette.

This is an old palette I dug out of my collection since it’s in my current Stash or Trash! The reason my I put it in my current stash or trash pile is because after my collection has grown and I got plenty of great quality colorful mattes I just did not reach for this anymore. It used to be an old favorite, but I just forgot about it when new and better (in my opinion) clorful palettes entered my collection. After more than 2 years without being touched at all I figured it was time to use it again and decide if it’s still good enough to keep. What I figured out will be something you have to read about in my stash or trash recap which will be published very soon!

IMG_20190226_154838_881.jpg

I did two looks with the palette just to play a bit around with the colors and these are the looks I came up with:

IMG_20190509_152458_482.jpg
