Blending Sponge Smackdown: Real Techniques vs. BH Cosmetics

When I decided to use the phrase "smackdown" in the title, I was thinking in terms of a "contest" between the 2.

However, according to Google, the definition of smackdown is: "a bitter contest or confrontation." Since both sponges are good & effective, I don't think this "contest" is bitter.

That being said, there is definitely a clear winner in this "smackdown". If you want to see which sponge emerges the victor, then just watch the video below. :)

Review: BH Cosmetics Pop Art Brush Set

I need more brushes like I need a hole in my head. Seriously. However, when a brush set that's been getting great reviews goes on wild sale (50% off plus a coupon code), what's a girl to do? ;)

Anyway, in the following video I go over the entire set of pop art brushes & show all but 2 in action (a flat foundation brush & a flat concealer brush, I prefer buffing type brushes). Long story short, although there are

Hi everyone, I'm beginning to feel a wee bit better, thank goodness! Now for something cheerful, I've had the very cool opportunity to try out some Illamasqua products! The products that were sent to me are: Eyeshadow in Moan (a sage/olive green), Nail Varnish in Wayward (a mustard yellow), Intense Lipgloss in Petulant (hot pink).

The eye & nail colors aren't really good for my coloring (I'm cool-toned), but I could totally see my sister pulling these off. So, I gave them to her to test for me. Below are her thoughts on these 2 products.

"Powder Eyeshadow Color: Moan (sage green)
Finely milled, goes on like a fine powder. Color is rich. Can be applied for a hint of color or a burst of color. It feels nice on the skin and can be moved around on the eyelid smoothly. Color stays without flaking off. I would definitely buy this product."

"Nail Varnish Color: Wayward (bright mustard yellow)
Bright color, smooth application. Coats evenly without clumping. It lasted quite a while on my nails without chipping or peeling. I look forward to getting this in a bold Blue color or a true Red."

Thanks Sis for your input!

Now, as for the intense lipgloss in petulant, this is definitely my color! This is a gorgeous, bold, opaque hot pink. The formula is smooth, not tacky, which is a major issue with me as I can not stand tacky gloss. It's very pigmented, very opaque, more like what you'd expect from a lipstick that just happens to be glossy. I love everything about this gloss: the feel, the color, & the pigmentation.

I do have a small issue with the applicator though. Maybe it's just my own clumsiness, but I wish it allowed for more precise application. Maybe a wand instead of a squeeze tube? If it was a sheer gloss, that wouldn't be an issue, but opaque lip products do need to be more precisely applied. Especially for a shaky-handed clutz like me, lol! That aside though, this is a fantastic gloss & you can get great application if you use a lip brush, which is what I did. Love it!

These products were given to me to review on this blog by a PR representative of the company. I did not pay for these products.
