What's up, guys?! It's Essence and Augusta, back at it again with another beauty review. WOOT WOOT!
This time we tried seven beauty products — all under $7 — because who doesn't like to save their money, amirite?!
First up, the BH Cosmetics Brow Pencil. It’s a two-in-one, so one side is a retractable brow pencil, and the other side is a spoolie brush for blending.
YAAASS! We were pleasantly surprised at how well this worked. Just a few strokes and a little blending made a major difference.
Just look at the difference between our filled-in brows and our unattended brows. The come-up is REAL!
Essence went with the color Medium, and Augusta tried Brunette.
We both gave the BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil 5/5 stars because it really filled in our brows without looking like we had major amounts of makeup on. It was easy to use and blended well. Augusta said it's comparable to Anastasia Brow Wiz, which is a whopping $21!
So the shadow without the primer was cute. But the shadow WITH the primer was like, WERRRK!
Essence wore the Roccan It shadow, and Augusta went with the Tawny Tease shades.
We gave both the BH Cosmetics primer and the Black Opal shadow 4/5 stars because we felt the primer could've enhanced the color a little more, and the shadow was good but it wasn't true to pigment on its own.
For our lashes, we gave The Super Sizer Fibers Mascara by CoverGirl a whirl.
Not sure about 400%, but it did make our lashes look fuller. It had an inky smell to it, though, and got a little clumpy when we were applying.
Overall, we both agreed it deserved 3/5 stars because it's not the best mascara we've ever used, but not the worst either.
And because life is undeniably better with lipstick, we tried two! First up, NYX Full Throttle.
COME. THRU. PIGMENT! The color was exactly as it was in the tube. It also glided on very easily, and it didn't make our lips feel dry.
Essence tried the Trickster shade, and Augusta tried Loaded.
