I had my nineteen year old daughter apply the make up and tell me what she thought of it.
Her comments as she was sitting there taking her time using the products were:
“I really like this mascara! My mascara costs what, around 25 dollars? This is really good! I could almost get this whole collection for the cost of my regular mascara!”
Later on again she said “I really do like this” then came to show me her eyelashes!
|The mascara color is called Little Black Dress and is a volumizing mascara.|
She said that the lip color was very faint, and she likes a bolder lip usually, but the color was nice. We discussed that the color was perfect for a pre-teen, or someone just starting out with lip color, or someone who did not care for a bold lip. Really good for anyone who just wants a light touch of color. The color was very pretty.
I asked her about the eyeshadows since she did not make comments of her own. She felt they could use more pigment, but she didn’t use a shadow primer either because she said she wanted to only use what they gave her for a fair review of the products standing on their own. The gold, more glittery color did not apply very smoothly and had a creamy consistency, which is ironic as one would think it would apply more smoothly. The other colors, applied smoothly but she had to use a lot of product to get them dark enough to her liking.
I tried the shimmery apricot toned gloss, which is technically named Kiss You, Liquidlights Glow Gloss, and I though it had a lovely light vanilla flavor to it, and the color was very pretty indeed, but even cooler for the younger crowd is that turns neon yellow in UV light! How awesome!
She also did like the eyeliner.
For the purpose of this review I did not edit or crop the photos in anyway. I only made a photo collage of some of them.

I may not be the target market here but are’t these colors beautiful!

Here is more information on the specific collection I was sent:
I am so happy that we got a chance to try this collection out! My daughter and I had a ton of fun testing the makeup together! While she is a “young adult” it was fun to bring back memories of when she first got into makeup and to be honest, geared toward the younger sect or not, this mascara is amazing, and the colors of the shadows are right in the ballpark with colors I already wear every day! The lip colors were in line with what is hot this season too and I have always been a fan of orange toned lip colors anyway. I can’t wait to check out the other lines, even if I am “40 something”.
