Hello, slowly getting back into my old blogging routine~! Tonight I want to review some products sent by TheStyleQuarter, these are very new to me-- Ben Nye cosmetics. I haven't actually heard of the name before until they asked me to make a review. So I did my research and found so many good and positive feedback about it.
TheStyleQuarter sent me Ben Nye Creme Foundation in Desert tan and Ben Nye Fireworks Wheel, they also sent me some translucent finishing powder but I failed to take some photos.
Now for those who are also first time to hear about Ben Nye, this is actually a popular cosmetic brand mainly used in Theatricals or plays. It creates face-altering results and I'm here to state my opinion if this brand is worth it or what! ^_^
First things first~
Because of this thrust, we offer a continuously growing collection of makeup brands and a vast array of shades suitable for each type of clientele. Whether you are a make-up artist, a cosplayer or an everyday makeup user, you will always find something new and something fabulous at The Style Quarter. "
Ben Nye creme foundation in Desert Tan~
It may come in a smaller container, but a swipe will go a long loooong way, depending on how dark you want the result of your skin to look. I'm really pleased with this because I felt no irritation although it looks heavy on my face. They are very easy to blend and do not disappoint. The only thing I find off, is that I had a hard time evening 'em out to my face, its patchy but im pretty sure its my fault coz I've never used dark foundation before.
In a bigger container w/ a lot of shades to choose from, this are handy and very flexible as they can serve as an eye shadow, contouring creme or face makeup. You might find the swatches kinda pale in the photo but in real life they are very vibrant and rich applied to bare face, a swipe could also go a long way, though the quantity is of course, not as many as the Foundation creme. I abused using the white shade mainly for my eyes and they don't quite stick to my face+foundation creme that much, I'm not sure if it's because I put too thick foundation or what. I also applied to the lip area where they looked great! So yep giving it 4 out of 5
Here is my 1st attempt to look like a gangguro or Mountain Hag using the Ben Nye products. Please be gentle as I've never done this before and I shouldn't have underestimated the gangguro make-up process!! But I'm more than happy to share these photos because at last! I'm ticking off gangguro look on my to-do list, haha! Here are the proof!!
I will be trying this make up again soon :D at least it's November, still valid to be silly and whatever you wanna be LOOOL
