MAKEUP HAUL 1: SMASHBOX, Makeup Revolution, BH Cosmetics (Review & swatches)

Hello! 

I decided to splurge on makeup a few days ago (if you follow me on Snapchat- ZUWILLIAMS & Instagram- MAKETOPIAOFFICIEL, you must’ve seen the live unboxing 😁) and I’ve never been happier; even though my account balance will beg to differ 😢, welcome to the world of a makeup addict 😭. 

This will be a 2 part article because I honestly can’t do justice in one post!

I got the Makeup Revolution Ultra Pro Glow palette, BH Cosmetics Sculpt & Blend 2&3 brushe sets+ Smokey eye palette,SMASHBOX Primer set, Colourpop Cosmetics lipstick sets in Up & Away + Blues Baby, et al. 

Today I’ll be focusing on the Primer set, Glow palette & brushes

1) SMASHBOX ‘LIGHT IT UP’ PRIMER SET


Look at that gorgeous packaging…SMASHBOX did that y’all 😍

I have a combination skin (the type that’s both dry & oily ) & believe me when I say it’s hard outchea for us. The struggle to find proper primers that’ll lock in that makeup is very real. I used the Photo Finish Foundation primer, it filled in my pores…made my skin feel silky smooth 😍. It is a tad pricey but totally worth the buy 

Me just after getting my face snatched 



Later at night (changed lipstick during the day & used a ringlight at full power for this pic)



See how fresh the makeup stayed? No touch ups either. 😊

2) MAKEUP REVOLUTION Ultra Pro Glow PALETTE


When I first opened this palette, I couldn’t breathe for a sec! Girl I was in love!

I’m a huge fan of their Golden Sugar palettes but this is even better!

PROS
 – soft & buttery texture

– major pigmentation

– great value for your money

– long lasting

– versatile colors

– buidable (you can go from subtle glow to blinding-the-devil kinda glow), this can go head-to-head with ABH’s highlighters & none will be the wiser. 


Trussssssssssssss me!

3) BH COSMETICS SCULPT AND BLEND 2 & 3

If you know me you know I stan for this company’s brushes. Can you believe I still use the brushes I got since almost 3yrs now and they’re still legit?

PROS

– Soft (feels like a dream against your skin)

– perfectly shaped for different uses 

– easy to clean ( major plus)

– pleasing aesthetic (with the whole metallic gold going on, you’d think it was custom gold plated brushes 😭…a girl can dream)

Rating: 10/10👌🏾

4) YANGABEAUTY BROWLUTION

Won this in a giveaway from @the_df_store (IG) 

Used the Brow pencil alone on my brows. 

PROS

-light & slim, won’t take up space in your bag, pencil & spoolie at each end is very handy 

-makes for great natural looking brows

– non-greasy 

CONS

– 1 shade for all. I’m not sure how I feel about that but ok

– it’s a little pricier than I’d hoped (it retails for N4,500 but then dollar ti won 😭)

– it’s not smudge-proof ( you’ll have to top it with a brow mascara)

Rating: 8/10
