Here’s a look at the top 10 products reviewed in the last week, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings!
I buy everything with the intention of reviewing it (which is my version of wearing it), and generally, I’m not someone who will buy makeup just to look at – like I’ll buy a pretty limited edition compact and use it, even if it destroys an embossing, and I’m okay with that. The way I see it is that if you enjoy looking at a compact more than using it, and you have the funds to do it, then it becomes more like a piece of art or decor to enjoy aesthetically–and that’s just fine!

This week’s Mellan photo…
MAC 239s (or Chikuhodo GSN-09s) for initial application of color (although, I will just as readily use them for all placement, blending, including crease color and brow bone color!). For the crease, if I want something more diffused, I’ll use a larger, rounded crease brush like Wayne Goss #19 or #03, and if I want something with more definition, then I’ll use a more tapered, smaller crease brush like Wayne Goss #04. For the brow bone, I use Hakuhodo J5523, which isn’t too fluffy nor too dense.
If I’m unhappy with the version I have, and I think the dupe is better, that would generally be the way to go. There are shades that I just really like, and so I enjoy having different finishes (even when slightly different), undertones, lightness/darkness, but they’re shades I would be more likely to reach for (e.g. I don’t have any desire to run out and get every single mustard yellow out there!).
