Hey guys, I’m back with a little bit of a late unboxing for December 2018. No joke, I got this on December 29th, so it was almost a little too late. This box actually had a brand I was familiar with, and that you may remember from a long ago post. The Wholesale Makeup Event I covered a few months ago. Beauty Creations. I know I was pleasantly surprised by their quality from that sale, but since getting them I haven’t revisited them.
Maybe that’s a shame, because even though they appear to be a knockoff brand, they seem to have a pretty solid formula. I applied this makeup at about 6:30 AM to get ready for work. And the gold shadows I went with were phenomenal for what they are. I’ll admit that I do need to brush up on my eye shadow technique, but barring any obvious improvements I can make, I quite enjoyed these shadows.
The thing that had me a little confused was the color correcting concealer palette- I don’t think I liked that too much. I just don’t see the purpose of them over actual concealer like my trusty shapetape. The only one I got any real use out of was the Peach tone, which I put under my eyes. Overall, I wasn’t digging the effect.
The other items being that liquid lip and a brush, I’ll speak on the liquid lip. I liked the color, I didn’t however, like that it felt like it never completely dried down. It remained tacky until it finally wore off 4-5 hours later. All things considered, that’s not bad lasting power. I did replace it with my Glitterflip while at work because I forgot to bring this one.
This post is little on the simple side for me, and guys, I apologize for that. I have some matters that I’m currently dealing with, but I didn’t want to leave you guys high and dry. I think I’ll end this post with the wear-test results!
Honestly, I wanted to try a gif this once, to show off the eye shadow. I feel like taking the pictures with the whole eyes-closed thing is super awkward. The liner is KVD Dagger liquid liner and obviously held up fairly well. I bought it before I knew of the controversy, but I’m determined to get my money’s worth out of it.
My basic feelings about this shipment from YOY, is that it feels low-value in comparison to IPSY, which delivers recognizable larger brands. The quality in these products did surprise me. And I do want to note quickly, that I don’t know much about brushes so I can’t really speak on this one. As well as the mask, which I haven’t had occasion to use it yet in the course of everything going on.
I do hope to bring you guys some travel content soon as we prepare for potential first out-of-state Weekend of Content! Stay tuned for Thursday!
