I’ll start with the service! I was so glad when they had a black Friday sale, this is for my kit. So definitely the 50% I could NOT ever pass up! Plus free shipping over 50$?! Hellllll yea! Order was placed, but I was so disappointed my brushes did not ship until two weeks later. I know they had a lot of orders, but people got their stuff way before me when they ordered Friday, I ordered Thursday night. They also took away my free samples, (“They we’re out of stock”), and since I also ordered the zipper belt. They also ran out of stock, that will not ship until January.
When my package arrived, I was not pleased at all… But I did not lose hope in what the brushes would have in store for me. A lot of the brush hairs we’re not packed on tightly, and the brush guards we’re a mess!
Moving on… I forgive them because the brushes are amazeballs.
Jumbo Fan - FB 01-I don’t really care too much about fan brushes, but a lot of people seem to likke this. It’s really densely packed, I like that. Used for face powder, highlighter, or bronzer! (Goat Hair)
Tulip Contour - FB 03- (Mac 138) I was so devastated when this brush came, and I was most excited for… It’s a little too fluffy for contouring which I wanted to use it for. But it does work great with brush and highlighter. The point after the first wash already went away, now looks like the Real Technique’s Blush Brush. Shedded a little, not too much. Black dye did fade a bit! (Goat Hair)
Dome Contour - FB05- (Mac 109)Second brush I was most excited about, biggest disappointment. Shedded right when I first got it, I’ve already tried washing it 3 times for it to quit shedding but it just keeps on going! Hopefully it’ll stop soon. But I do like it, for blush and highlight. Hopefully when it stops shedding I’ll be able to test it for foundation. :) (Goat Hair)
Flat Top Buffer - FB 07-(Compared to Sigma Flat Top Kabuki) This brush is sooooooeffortless. It’s soft, blends smoothly, flawless application. Maybe even better than any flat top brush I’ve ever used! Used mostly for foundation, and it’s synthetic. Makes the application go on so effortlessly, and flawless. No shedding, my favorite face brush! (Synthetic Hair)
Universal Blender - EB 09-(Mac 217) I have used the 217 from my bestfriend, and really it’s not all that GREAT for $23.00 out the pocket. This brush is in my opinion much smoother, the 217 can have a few bristles that poke out and hurt. This works wonderful for creams, packing on shadows, and blending anywhere. The name works for it, universal. No shedding what so ever. (Goat Hair)
Flat Synthetic - EB 11- I love this brush. I’ve used synthetic brushes before to pack on shadow, and those just do not work great. They’re stick hard, but this one is definitely “the one!” It is easy to clean, easy to pack on shadows. My favorite eye brush in this set. (Synthetic Hair)
Synthetic Blender - EB 13- Brush that can be used for concealing, really densely packed and soft. No shedding, it makes blending in my concealer and eye shadows 10 seconds faster. Can be used for creams, and all around products. (Synthetic Hair)
Pointed Crease - EB 15- I’m not so big on this brush at all, but not disappointed. After being washed the point stays, but just not as pointed as it first came. Great for precise crease details. Did not shed. (Goat Hair)
Brow Spoolie Duo - EB 17- This brush is double ended, and I love that! MakeupbyRenRen made the brow brush very packed, but that’s not my type of favorite brush since I have thin brows that need to be precisely filled. Great for clients who have fuller brows. But the spoolie is really nice. (Synthetic Hair)
Bent Liner - EB 19-I was excited about this brush because it’d be my first bent liner! I expected more out of it honstly… But it is harder than an angled liner brush. Once you get used to it, it smoothes easier. This is easy to wash, and care for. (Synthetic Hair)
Detailed Shader - EB 21-This fits perfectly on the lashline and precise details for the lid and tear duct. One of my favorite in this bunch, it’s soft. Does not shed, and doesn’t hurt my sensitive lash line.
Angled Detail - EB 23-This is perfect for eyebrows as well, I like using gel liner for this and it runs so smooth and precise. It is dense, and it’s form stays after washing.
Overall: 8/10 A solid 8, the face brushes are not too impressive. But the eye brushes really opened my eyes, and I do like them. :) This is great to start your freelance kit with, and I love it. If I can buy the eye brushes in a set separately I would, but for now it’s okay!
Oh oh oh my… What took me so long to review this? Mac’s blush in “Melba”.
This blush should be that “one” blush from MAC everyone should own! It goes with any lip color (which is why I love it so much, and wear it so often!) I’ve always eyed this blush but never thought about buying it. But I definitely “yolo’d” it and bought it.
Permanent collection to blushes.
Matte (meaning no shimmer, flex, anything. Flat color)
Color: A soft peach, with a orange undertone and a little bit of pink in person. Easy for anyone to wear with anyone’s skin tone.
Longevity: Blushes all last depending on what you’re wearing that day, and this by itself is pretty long. I’ve worn it just with powder, and it lasts up to 5 hours, you can reapply if you like.
This is definitely a holy grail for me, it’s diverse on all skin tones and works with any lip color. Gives you a nice flawless glow.
I clearly have far from perfect skin, but when I do wanna wear full makeup I go to my “holy grail” foundation routine. Also the picture makes my face look lighter than my neck but it was just the lighting.

On the website: Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes.
Hi make-up lovers! Long time no review, I’ve been extremely busy and enjoying my summer.
Dipdown is a brown fluidline, and from my experience with fluidlines– they’re wonderful and creamy don’t smudge one bit. Dipdown brows are all over instagram, and I wanted to catch onto the hype and see if it is really what it lives up to.
3 g/0.1 ounce
Okay, lets get to it… It is creamy, and a little goes a long way. I’ll be posting up ways for softer natural brows and the more dramatic clean brow in another post. It is smudge proof, and it does take a strong make-up wipe to take this off. Dip down is also a little tiny bit water proof. I’ve only used this on my brows, and it’s easy to work with. What I love about this is that it can be built up and natural but dramatic if wanted. This product lasts all day, I swear by it. When I wore this everyday in Vegas, it wouldn’t smudge or budge!
9.5/10, for the half a point it’s probably the price point. It breaks my wallet, but a little of this goes a long way.
