DB Cosmetics: Brand Focus*

DB Cosmetics Brand Focus Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

I'm a huge fan of bargain cosmetics, so when DB Cosmetics offered to send me a few goodies to try out, I just couldn't resist. I was lucky enough to receive a good selection of their products. 

DB Cosmetics Brand Focus Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

I've been using DB Cosmetics since I was a younger teenager, as it was such a cheap brand. Unfortunately the quality was not always the best. In recent years, they have revamped their brand and things are looking pretty good. 


DB Cosmetics Brand Focus Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

Pressed Mineral Blush in Glow

This was one of the products that excited me the most. I was instantly drawn to the shade, and it's made a great addition to my collection. I'm a huge fan of shimmery blushes so I'm happy this has a little bit of shimmer to it. This one retails for $9.99 and you can buy it here.

Quad Eyeshadow Palette in Cocoa Brown

I wasn't overly excited by this one at first, as I'd experienced not-so-great pigmentation with DB Cosmetics eyeshadows in the past. However upon swatching, I was pleasantly surprised at how pigmented and creamy the shades are. I also really like the shades, as I am usually drawn to browns and nudes. This one retails for $9.99 and you can buy it here.

Contour Kit

I don't contour often because it's a bit of a pain in the butt in the morning before work, but on special occasions it's nice to add that little bit of dimension. This one is a really nice beginner contour kit, but would probably be best for those with lighter skin as even the darkest shade is fairly dark. The colours worked fairly well on my skin as I am very pale. This one retails for $9.95 and you can buy it here.

Longwear 24 Hour Foundation in Classic Ivory

I was so impressed by this foundation. Even though it's a yellow based foundation, I found that the yellow wasn't overpowering on my skin. This one matched my skin tone well, and has really good coverage. I might consider doing a full face review if people are interested. This one retails for $12.99 and you can buy it here.

Longwear Matte Lipgloss in Everlasting

I wore this out to dinner and was actually surprised at how long it lasted, even after eating. Although this is matte, I found it did not cling to dry patches and was actually rather nourishing on my lips. I did use a lip balm beforehand though, to protect my lips from any excess dryness. I also absolutely adore the shade! This one retails for $9.95 and you can buy it here.

Absolute Lash Max Volume Mascara

This one has worked it's way into my regular mascara rotation. It gives great length, but not a lot of volume, which makes it great for an every day mascara. The applicator is pretty regular, which makes it easy to use. This one retails for $14.99 and you can buy it here.


DB Cosmetics Brand Focus Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

Eye Kohl Pencil in Black

Another product that's made it's way into my daily routine. A black kohl pencil is a staple in my collection, so I'm pretty picky. This one is incredibly creamy and pigmented, so I'm pretty impressed with the quality of this one. It also comes in a range of other shades, so I might consider grabbing some more for my collection. This one retails for $4.99 and you can buy it here.

Foundation / Contour Kit / Blusher
Eyeliner / Eyeshadow Quad / Lip Gloss


I completely forgot to actually share a image of me wearing the mascara, so I'm sorry about that - but I might just have to do an entire blog post on it so I can share how lovely my lashes do actually look.

Overall, I'm utterly impressed with everything I received from DB Cosmetics. They really did blow me away with their increased quality; and it's so nice to see they have been able to keep their low prices. 


 I will definitely be grabbing more goodies for my makeup collection, particularly the blushers and the lip glosses!

Have you tried DB Cosmetics before? If so, what are your thoughts?

  5. I think I've tried one product from DB (an eyeliner?) which I didn't really like. They do seem like they've had a revamp though and a lot of these products sound pretty great! The matte lippy looks so bright!
