GUYS! We’re on YOUTUBE! We are so excited to bring you MakeupFomo’s very first video! We got some really cool products that we just HAD to share with you and what better way than to actually try them out on camera so that you can see them in action?! The video covers most of my thoughts so watch that for sure! But here, I’ll give you a bit more insight & a few more thoughts.
This baby is the STAR of the show – I am IN LOVE with this Cue Clipless Curling Wand from Vanity Planet! I haven’t used one quite this good in like… ever. My curls last frizz-free for 4 DAYS with this thing. 4 DAYS! It’s so sleek looking so it fits right in on your vanity or bathroom counter and it’s super lightweight so your arm never gets weighed down or over-tired from holding it up! I have sooooooooo much more to rave about this want but you’ll have to see the video for that.
I hadn’t tried anything out from Gabriel Cosmetics before filming this video so I had no idea what to expect! I didn’t get a chance to try the shadows in the Aura Palette in the video just because I had two others I wanted to try (see below) but I’ve since played around with them a bit and they aren’t bad! Definitely not the most creamy formula to the touch, but the color payoff is really decent and I just LOVE these shades. Doesn’t this just make you think spring and Easter?! The highlight and blush are what really make this palette SO SO worth it! I have worn the blush every day since trying it out and the highlight is seriously one of my new favorites! These are incredibly pigmented but blend so well into the skin that you don’t have to worry about over-applying. The highlight is veryyyyyyyy glowy, though, which I love but I know not everyone can get down with. The applicators suck so just throw those away, but the rest of the palette is lovely. Plus that mirror is HUGE! So so perfect for travel.
The lipstick, on the other hand, had just one downside for me – the smell. It just really smelt strongly of chemicals – you know that just super makeup-y smell?! This has that. The color is sooooooo pretty & it feels super comfortable on the lips, though, so it also has alot going for it! But if you’re sensitive to strong scents, this might walk that line for you.
These Zuzu Luxe Eyeshadow Palettes in Combat & Ammunition were reallllyyyy big hits! They are so compact & just adorable, but the shades seriously pack a punch! I wish I would have swatched the shades I didn’t use on my eyed in the video on my hand or arm to give you an idea of the pigmentation – but let me tell you, it is REAL! I love how the colors coordinate in each quad and they each hold their own on the lid. Even the brush that comes with it is actually useful – rare, I know. The mirrors are way to small to really even use so they’re slightly pointless, but that doesn’t change my thoughts too much (especially considering that HUGE mirror on the Aura Palette). I definitely think these are worth checking out – especially if you’re just starting off in building your makeup collection and need some basics to get you going!
Overall, these products were definitely wins. Each had a bunch of pros and at least one or two cons, but I think they all really perform well when applied – isn’t that what we really want, after all? Feel free to click the links provided to check them out OR shoot us over any questions you may have! Also, give us feedback on the video! We know it’s our first one so there are certainly some rough edges we can continue to learn to smooth, but we had SO MUCH fun filming it – we will totally do more! Let us know what you think!
