Yet again, another beauty review on em cosmetics brand. My fourth purchase of the line…it might be my last for the time being, until it is time for replacements. So for my holiday goodies, I purchased a mascara, face primer, lipstick and a waterliner.
1. Waterproof Dramatic Volume Mascara
Pros: It is definitely waterproof which is excellent because for my type of eyes , I absolutely need waterproof mascara. Regular mascara does no justice for my eyelids.
Cons: I can’t say “dramatic” defines this product. It wasn’t dramatic as I expected it to be. I actually preferred the brush of the clean volume mascara comparative to this brush. It provided more volume and extention of the lashes. I think I will just switch the brushes between the two
2. Face Primer
Pros: Non-drying, smooth after-feel and leaves no flaking residue. I like this primer better than the Smashbox primer that I already have. It has a pump for easy extraction.
3. Lip Gallery – Passion Berries Matte
Pros: Like all the other iIchelle Phan lipsticks I have in my possession, this one is no different. While very similar to the “Wine Stain” lipstick (velvel feel, pleasant scent, moisturizing while matted, long lasting wear), this berry shade is deep, rich and alluring. I loved the way it look against my skin and I am interested in even trying a darker shade to this one. Rocking dark lipstick is definitely my forte now.
4. Ro’s Gold Waterliner
Pros: The top selling waterliner; the color is absolutley shimmering and vibrant. It really brightens up your eyes and has subtle faded pinkish coral shade . I liked the idea of the smudger at the other end of the pencil liner, if you want a more smeared effect on your eyes. The consistency is sleek, lustrous and goes a long way for a polished look. The wear lasted all day. A must have in your makeup bag because it is definitely a gorgeous color and it looks great against most skin tones.
Cons: The stick could be a little more firm. While application of the waterliner, there was times it felt like it would easily break off.
All of this with a 40% off promotion. It was a really good deal, I couldn’t pass it up. I hope if or when you buy your em cosmetics you will have an enjoyable experience with some of the makeup as I have and don’t forget to share your thoughts! Thank you for reading and Happy Holidays!
