*Review* Shop Miss A : a2o Spectrum Highlighter in Rose Quartz Blush


Hello my lovelies! Today I will be reviewing the a2o Spectrum Highlighter in Rose Quartz Blush. I picked this up from Shop Miss A for $5.00. It is currently on the site for $2.50, so if you love what you see after this review you should totally pick it up! Lets hop right in shall we?

Pigment

As we have already gone over the price, the next thing to hit is this products overall pigment. In the swatches below, you will see both a finger and brush swatch. The swatches do not appear to be very pigmented, BUT if you take into account that this highlighter builds wonderfully you wont even care about the actual swatches.

Application

I have used this highlighter with a large fan brush, and with my finger for the tip of my nose and bridge of my nose and have not one complaint. The only negative is the kickback, or fallout, is very overwhelming. But for the price what can you expect.

Overall

I love this pink toned highlighter! I would also recommend it to any of my fair skin toned readers who don’t mind a little shimmer in their blush. This is also a very close dupe for the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Rose ($48.00). I give this highlighter a 10/10 and it has very quickly become one of my favorite highlighters for a no makeup makeup day!

 

What are your thoughts on this highlighter or this line from Shop Miss A?

 

Till next time,

Lynn XOXO

A20 Liquid Eyeshadow: Review

I’ve been playing around with the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows for well over a month now. I picked up the two shades Wave and Thermo for a dollar a piece at Shop Miss A. Shop Miss A is a super affordable website where everything is $1.00! They have a more “professional” line called A20 where the items are a little more than a dollar but still very affordable.

Packaging


The packaging seems very cheap but super sturdy! The tubes feel very lightweight and almost empty. The lettering on the tubes will wipe off with much use, but almost all plastic tubing without a label will.

Pigment


I wasn’t wowed by the pigment of this product. When I think Liquid eyeshadow, I think of a base so shadows are more pigmented. These did not give me that effect. Thermo was super patchy and hard to build. Wave was slightly better, more opaque and easier to build up for the perfect base.

Finish

These shadows never really dry down and will transfer if not set with a similar eyeshadow. I always thought maybe i hadn’t warn the shadows long enough for them to dry down, but after wearing a swatch of Wave for over 8 hours it was clear they weren’t made to be worn alone.

Overall Thoughts? Will I Repurchase?

I don’t believe these shadows are something I’d be purchasing again. I love liquid shadows for a base for my least pigmented shimmers, but these wouldn’t do any better than them. For the price this is a “You get what you pay for” type of product. I’m not a fan of the way the shadows don’t dry down either. I’d give this product a 2/5 rating.
