Makeup Brands By YouTubers (EM Cosmetics, Jeffree Star, Pony Effect) – Tried and Tested: EP117


Hello girlfriends and welcome to another episode of Tried and Tested Today we’re going to be trying out makeup by YouTubers. Now these products are pretty hard to get in Singapore So a big thank you to AirFrov for helping us to get them! So AirFrov is an app where you can get people who are traveling overseas to help you buy stuff that you can’t get in your home country. So for this one we posted a request and travelers who went to the US and Korea bought them for us and they carry them back. So if you haven’t used AirFrov before you can just sign up and use my referral code “shuan” and you’ll get a $10 credit You actually have to start it right S-H-U-A-N So this is from Michelle Phan’s makeup line which she recently relaunched – EM Cosmetics This is the infinite lip cloud I’m particularly excited about this lip cloud cuz I’ve heard really good things about this so it’s almost be a long wearing lip cream that is comfortable and lightweight non-drying. Which is great and this color is French Nude. Maybe this will replace my Brooke Candy! Guys I’ve been trying your suggestions I still haven’t found the right one. I’m very sad. But thank you. Oh that’s pretty! It’s so smooth! Oh maybe this can Brooke Candy! This applicator is quite cute, it’s called the doe foot applicator. There’s a slight curve to it and I think it’s supposed to hug your lips. It looks like a pointed ballerina’s foot. It’s so smooth and creamy and it’s a very light moussey texture. Almost feels like a lip cream but a very very very thin and light lip cream. It feels like the wand is just going across my lips and it’s not depositing any product. I get why they call it the infinite lip cloud now It feels like a cloud. I love the applicator it’s great because length of it just fits my lip perfectly. The tip is also pretty sharp so it gets into the corners and it gives very neat application I’m not very sure how long wearing this is so I’m gonna wear it for the rest of the episode and we’ll check in then Flash-forward to a few hours later, we have also been eating and shooting and the lip color is still there! So pretty long wearing. A bit of the middle part kind of disappeared but it’s not like feathering or doing horrible things and yeah I’m pretty impressed I would give this an eight out of ten Okay now back to regular timeline. So this is the illustrative eyeliner with a brush tip This is modelled after an illustration pen it’s supposed to give you control over the type of lines that you draw. You can draw thin lines and thick lines more easily with the same brush tip and also it’s supposed to be very smudge proof, waterproof and fast drying and the tip is actually very soft and malleable The color on this is not super black The control of this is really quite amazing And even though it’s not like a super crazy inky black, it’s not like I have to do it too many times to get the black out. Look at how fine that line is. Okay let’s see if this is smudge proof Very smudge proof is not even budging Let’s see whether this is waterproof. Whoa Super waterproof! The ink is coming out but it’s not like smudging or anything So it’s not gonna leave behind a mess. I would give this a 9 out of 10 This is Pony Effects Pebble Blender and it’s kind of like a Beauty Blender and it’s supposed to be very versatile you can use it dry which will give you a smooth matte finish and maximum coverage or you can use it wet to give you more like natural dewy finish So the last time when I tried a similar product which is the beauty blender I used it wet so I’m gonna try it wet and see how it compares You see like the shape of the sponge it’s like flat on two sides I guess it’s quite good cause it gives you like maximum coverage and it’s also got this like flat bit here i’m assuming to get into like the corners and stuff but you still have the round bottom. It got much bigger did it get bigger is it just my head? Yeah it got bigger. It got quite a lot bigger! Wow that’s very absorbent! it definitely covers like a lot of surface area. The flatness of this helps. I find it very big though. I’m having a bit of problems like getting in there. It’s doable it’s just maybe not as precise maybe yes I would like it to be I like that this area so big it’s not as soft as a Beauty Blender It feels more like a normal sponge but maybe with more different shapes for you to play with This does an okay job but I don’t feel like it’s more than like say applying it with my hands or with a brush So I would rate this I guess like a seven out of ten? It’s okay. The price is half of the Beauty Blender so I guess the trade-off is there I still feel like the Beauty Blender gave me a much more skin-like finish This is an ultra slim brow pencil and supposed to create very fine and realistic strokes and it’s one of the more popular products in her makeup range Oh! It’s really very slim! On one side we have the eyebrow pencil which is like super duper slim 1.5 mm and on the other side we have the brush okay yes this would be very easy to draw with because the color comes off very easily but not too much so it’s very easy to kind of like correct mistakes So I have nothing on my brows now let’s just do one side and see how that looks oh the color is super duper natural This is the perfect color for me I can see why it’s one of the more popular products because like the colors a really great mix for Asian skin because sometimes I get grays that are just too gray and they look very washed out It’s more ash than anything but that slight brown in it really helps to liven up the skin tone which is what I like So in terms of application I’m still a little bit torn because I felt that it wasn’t the most even some parts ended up with more product than the rest so I really had to brush it out quite a bit if you like the very natural very realistic finish this is actually a very good eyebrow pencil I do not actually have an eyebrow pencil with this color and that can give me this kind of finish which is really just your brows but better Like my lips but better but is that your
brows might better So I think this kind of gives you this so you know what I’m gonna give this eight and a half out of ten but the finished color is really very good. Actually it is really very natural. You know what I’ll give a nine. This is from Jeffree Star Cosmetics and the packaging can I just say is fabulous. Just this fabulous this he is So this is the skin frost highlighter and I’ve heard so many things about this This color is peach goddess and this is
so cute here You betta glow bitch Damn straight girl This reminds me of bubblegum. Do you remember last time the bubblegum tape? The bubblegum tape was like this color! Oh memories. This is so good I will glow! Oh my goodness this thing you gonna have you glowing like a firefly! The highlight on this is strong I think that the color is really really nice I find that this shade is also quite universally flattering. For this one it really feels like If you want that I’m-wearing-highlighter look this is perfect for you but if you prefer like a glow that looks more natural then maybe not so much and this one, the payoff is amazing! You really don’t have to use a lot to get this frost and shine It really looks like skin frost you know what I mean? It doesn’t look like the glow is coming from your skin It looks like you have highlighter on So that to me is the difference 8.5 out of 10 Actually no, 9 Yeah I would give this a 9 out of 10 There’s something about the packaging from this line that inspires excitement This is really like whoa! What do we have here? This feels like a texture animal skin I don’t know what animal but is not a real animal and here are the colors! oh these colors are amazing Can I just say, they describe this as a neutral palette. What here is neutral? What? These colors are really pigmented oh so pretty! okay I see it now I mean together like this it does look quite neutral Neutral with a bit of fun in there right all right let’s play with this neutral
palette it matches the color my skin really nicely Alright now I’m gonna try charm I was expecting I guess, more orange but this is also good because if you’re not so daring with your colors it’s a nice way to like build it up okay this is a lot redder than I was expecting it to be Honestly I feel like the color payoff and the fetish is not as good as I expected it to be I’m gonna try and mix it up with a little bit of androgyny oh that’s cute We’ve tested it without primer because usually test all our eyeshadows without primer but I feel like the colors are not really popping as much as I expected them to Maybe it’s also an expectation thing because you know you see Jeffrey Star and his makeup the colors are very strong and his look is very strong and also with the highlighter palette it’s just a little bit and it just went boom so I kind of expected the eyeshadow palette to do the same thing. I found it a little bit difficult to kind of get an even spread of color So on some of them is really quite patchy especially like these three over here. If you’re the kind of person who really likes when you put on just a little bit and the color just pops this may not be the palette for you because it really does take a while to build up so I would give this like a 7 out of 10 Okay we come to the end of the episode if you want to find out more about the products the links are in the video description box and if you haven’t done so already you need to do what?
