If you are anything like me, you have a very busy schedule and oftentimes are running from one event to another after work. Unfortunately for me, there is too much of a distance between my home and place of employment that I don’t have time to return home to change clothes and re-apply makeup so I am usually doing it in the restroom at work.
Recently, I had lunch with a former co-worker and as we were leaving the restaurant a young lady approached us and handed me a small pretty purple bag and proceeded to show me a sample of its contents.
You know me, I thought it was a FREE gift, however, it wasn’t, and after capturing my attention she explained that the cost would be $20 plus tax. Since we don’t have sales tax in Delaware I refused to pay the Pennsylvania tax, however, my co-worker graciously did. I was a bit leery about making the purchase but I took her picture then asked for her social media platforms to verify that she was legit!
Anywho, $20 bucks was a bit pricey, but I admired her hustle, however, I couldn’t help but think about those “don’t let anyone spray you with perfume in the parking lot” internet warnings.
I loved the small compact size of the cosmetics because it beats carrying a full makeup bag to work and it fits neatly in my purse or I can simply leave it in my desk drawer for when I need a quick touch-up.
- 5 Matte Eye Shadows
- 2 Powder Blushes
- 5 Shimmer Eye Shadows
- 5 Lip Colors
- 1 Pencil Sharpener
- 1 Mascara
- 3 Applicators
- Clear plastic top
- 12 Eye Shadow Colors in a removable tray
- 1 Applicator
- Black Compact with Mirror – the compact even doubles as a business card holder so that you are ready for those after work Networking Mixers
Lip Addiction II
- 4 Lip Colors
- Clear Vinyl Carrying Case
- 1 Retractable Brush Applicator
I tried a few of the shadows and liked how smooth and creamy they applied as well as the liners and mascara which wasn’t clumpy nor messy.
- Lip Addiction colors are great for my skin complexion
- Eye Shadows apply smoothly
- Sized perfectly to fit my purse or tote bag
- Applicator brushes are too small
- Blushes are too light for my skin complexion
So my unsolicited and unpaid review is: whether you’re heading out after work for a networking event or are headed out to catch a quick flight into the city and you need a mini “face beat” Makeover Essentials will definitely meet your needs.
