Today I received my "Get the Look" set from eyeslipsface.com.au! This is a limited edition set (my favourite!) and comes with two eye palettes of three colours each, a nifty little liquid eyeliner, a brightening pencil eyeliner, mascara and two little applicator brushes.
This particular palette was probably my favourite thing in the whole set. The green was what set it apart from other smokey eye palettes for me. I tried this one straight away and found the colours were very easily manageable and blended well with each other to create a lovely smokey evening look!
The second palette was more of a summery look. I haven't tried these colours properly yet, but they are lovely. They aren't as bright as they are on the palette, but they do blend well and give a bright, day-time look. It doesn't show up perfectly on the camera, but that final colour is more of an orange-gold look than the yellowy white you're seeing now. My favourite colour would probably be the purple in the middle.
The brightening eyeliner worked well enough for pencil eyeliner. It didn't smudge too badly and did stay put on the eye for a long time. Nothing special, I've used other eyeliners before and there is no real difference here.
The mascara in this pack was the biggest let down. You may not be able to see in the photo but the applicator end was very small and fat, and the product on the end of it was very dried out and clumpy. I tried it regardless, and it was so dry I don't think any mascara actually made it onto my eye lashes!
But considering the price of this set altogether, it's not a huge loss that the mascara didn't work out. And who knows, I may have just gotten a defective product! Either way, I won't be using the mascara again.
After looking at the mascara, I figured the liquid eyeliner would probably be similar to it. But I was wrong. This was probably the biggest surprise product in the set. The applicator was very sturdy and made it easy to apply the product, and the product itself was actually very smooth and quick to dry. It also has excellent staying power!
I will be using this product again and again, as I've always had major issues with other liquid eyeliners so I usually stick to the pots, but this one has changed my view entirely.
So over-all I would say this pack is well worth the money. Two excellent palettes, one excellent liquid eyeliner, one standard eyeliner, and one unfortunate mascara - the good outweighs the bad in this pack worth only $15.00! So give it a go and I'm sure you won't be disappointed (perhaps only by the mascara haha!).
