Updated with swatches & reviews:
From right to left: Girl Power (in an eyeshadow jar but reads “not for immediate eye area“… Matte), Shop (eyeshadow Matte), Amaze (eyeshadow metallic), Hippo (highlighter), Brow pencil (Bangin’ Brunette)
Among the three eyeshadows, I like Shop the most (the 2nd one from right). It’s a highly pigmented matte color between coral and red and I think it looks a bit less intense and more wearable than Girl Power (the far right bright coral shade). Amaze (the shade in the middle) had tons of hype but I don’t know whether the glitter will fall off after a few hours of wear. Hippo, the highlighter (2nd one to the left) is a pearlized shade and it looks less intense when you apply it to your cheek than on my arm so you will like it if you are not looking for those WOW in-your-face type of highlighter.
The brow pencil is easy to work with as it glides on easily and is highly pigmented. But you cannot un-retract once you turn it up, which is wierd, so only retract what you will be using.
I don’t like the lighter shade Hype Girl at all. It’s not nude as I thought, is in a warmer tone with some wierd neon undertone, and super dry and accentuates every single line on my lip after I apply one coat. It’s not getting better with another coat and it is not even 100% matte. So in my opinion, it’s a fail.
The darker shade Frick n ‘Frack however is lovely! It’s not as brownish as I thought but it’s a beautiful cool tone, dark red shade that’s easy to work with. It feels pretty comfortable on my lip after a lipbalm and it doesn’t move. You can get an even application effortlessly and this shade makes your teeth look whiter. Although it’s not an everyday shade for me, I like it a lot and will throw this on when I have a neutral/brown vintage eye look.
Good morning beautiful! Hope your Monday was uneventful in a good way or filled with excitement and expectation for the rest of the week 🙂
