Makeup MAYhem Day 17 - Four or More Makeup Tag


Hello everyone! So today I will be doing a tag that I first saw in Emilynoel83 over at Beauty Broadcast (video here). This tag is meant to showcase makeup products you have four or more of (for some reason or another). While looking through my collection to write this post, I realized that while I have a lot of makeup, I don't have a lot from the same product line. As such, I decided to write up this post to show you what products I own and give you a peak into my thoughts (or a refresher since some of these... I already had a review on!)

Elf Studio Baked Eyeshadow in Bark, Burnt Plum, Enchanted, Pixie, and Toasted - Review
These were my first introduction into baked eyeshadows, and boy do I have to say that these are some of my favorite shadows to play with. The colors in here are generally very pigmented and very easy to apply. I created a look with these back in the day when I first started blogging, but now that these have resurfaced again I know that I need to do either a makeup tutorial or look again (especially with the newer shade I got, Burnt Plum)!

Inglot Eyeshadow in 353, 07, 09, 12 - Review
Looking for affordable eyeshadows with Mac quality but half of the price? Enter into the land of Inglot, where single eyeshadows are $7 a piece. The quality on all of these are absolutely lovely, very pigmented and no fall out. The eyeshadows are not too soft and do not get all over the place (unless your little sister wants to play with your makeup). Highly recommend you to check Inglot out (especially if you have a counter nearby and don't have to drive 2 hours to grab things)

Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Eternal White, Pink Evermore, Continuous Almond, Tenacious BrownReview
Minus Eternal White, these are great eyeshadow bases to enhance, brighten, and add to staying power of your eyeshadows. Now that its summer time and I have more time to experiment with makeup, I have started gravitating back towards cream products because of how much of a difference it could make to my makeup! 

Jordana Easyliner Retractable Lip Liner Pencil in Rock n Rouge, Baby Berry, Sedona Red and Tawny
While I do like the color that these provide as a base to my lip products, I do not think they elongate staying power significantly enough for me to justify buying more. They don't go on smoothly on my lips, dragging instead of gliding which makes it very unappealing for me to get ever again. While the price is very affordable on these, I wouldn't recommend. 

Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Stain in Sweet Pink, Cranberry Crush, Rock n Rouge, and Honey Love
I grabbed these initially thinking that they would be cheaper alternatives to my beloved Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. In the several months that I have these, I have to honestly say that these are forgettable in my makeup collection. While I do use these, I don't really gravitate towards them as necessities. The pigmentation on these are nice, but they feather out of my lip line so easily (and I can't be bothered to wear lip liner to help combat the issue). For a no fuss lip product, I say skip and go to Revlon, but the colors are beautiful. Honey Love is comparable to Revlon JBKLBS in Honey, but Honey Love is slightly darker. For a wearable Berry lip color, I recommend Cranberry Crush, which is what I primarily wore this fall and winter.I grabbed these initially thinking that they would be cheaper alternatives to my beloved Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.

Mac Eyeshadows in Amber Lights (not pictured... MIA), Cranberry, Humid, Saddle, Satin Taupe, Sumptuous Olive, and Woodwinked
I honestly have to say that these eyeshadows are THE BOMB. While they are pricey ($15) to get them in a pot (which I foolishly did when I initially started buying them), the quality and pigmentation is worth it across all the shades I have. I did my research on the majority of them, picking favorites from many of my favorite youtubers as well as picking from Mac makeup artists recommendation. I know I will continue to add on this collection slowly (but surely)

Mac Lipsticks in Brave, Cream Cup, High Tea, Impassioned (not pictured...MIA), Syrup (not pictured...currently MIA), Viva Glam I
Oh Mac lipsticks, while I may not have too many of you, I do know that you may be my favorite formula of lipsticks ever. Once I started on Brave... I was hooked from there and purchased the rest (minus Cream Cup, which was won during Vanessa's giveaway over at Citron and Guavaberry last holiday season). You can expect this products to grow, especially since my favorite lip products is Mac.

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Apocalyptic, Celestial, Comet., Luna, and Out of This World - Review
These liquid lipsticks are awesome (minus Luna...which isn't that pigmented and makes me look washed out). The formulation of this product is great, not too overtly sticky and not too greasy. Still highly recommend this product if you haven't tried it! For those of you who may be wondering what my favorite lip product out of this bunch is, its still Celestial (which I wear on a constant basis!)

Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone, Petal Pusher, Sweet as Candy, Silent Treatment, I'm Getting Sunburnt and Walking on Eggshells
These are raved a ton in the blogging and youtuber world, and boy is it deserved! Love the pigmentation of these shadows, they are very comparable to what I currently own from high end brands (if not better!) Only downsize, packaging sucks...which is the reason I've essentially lost two eyeshadows from the Petal Pusher palette (and part of Silent Treatment)!

  10. I was thinking about doing this and I realized that for the most part, I don't have that many four or more items! Which is weird to me considering how big my collection is! Anyway, this was so interesting to see! Definitely need some of those Elf shadows in my life

  18. UHHH I don't have too many multiples of the same product BUT HOLY YOU HAVE A LOT. I still want to try Inglot's stuff, because I love the 'build your own palette' concept (someone do that for blush, pls), and I still want to try Cranberry Crush AND I'M SO GLAD YOU SENT ME THE JORDANA EYESHADOW PENCILS THOSE ARE AMAZING!

  19. i love this post! your the first blogger that really got me excited about inglot. ive been seeing it around in some blogs and it got me interested but not to the point that i want to hunt it down and find a store here that sells it. also i didnt know its that cheap :O

    just realized that i dont own anything in 4s haha. but mac lipsticks are probably the first one that will reach that goal.i currently own 2 - mac viva glam 1 and brave <3

  20. Glad you liked my post! And yes, Emily's videos are great :D

  21. LOL. I tend to hoard products... as you can tell. Inglot products are absolutely amazing! Need to try their blushes... maybe the next time I'm in Orlando. So HAPPY you like the eyeshadow pencils. I swear by them, they are FANTASTIC. Get Cranberry crush when you are back in the States!

  22. tehe. Inglot is a fantastic brand! I look forward to buying more from them and making more dents in my wallet! It is SO cheap. Granted, there was a minor price raise (I actually just checked, went from $6 to $7 for a single eyeshadow) but that is...drugstore prices. I'm almost positive L'Oreal Infalliable and Maybelline Color Tattoos are the same price...if not they more expensive.


    awww, was looking forward to seeing your post :( Mac Viva Glam 1 and Brave are absolutely amazing! Mac lipsticks are definitely worth the investment, thats for sure!
