I did not order the blendiful when it was first released because, to be honest, Tati’s first release was very underwhelming and I expected this to be too.
Then as it popped up all over YouTube I was convinced to give it a try. I do a lot of traveling so having one product that could do so much was very appealing.
My package arrived Sunday, today is Monday so I’ve had three days to use it. Here are my thoughts:
It is not an intuitive product to use. It’s great that it’s large and can be bulky and hard to handle easily
It applied my Tatcha primer nicely, I enjoyed being able to really press it into my skin
I enjoyed that it felt like I was applying my foundation with my hands without the hassle of getting my hands dirty
I absolutely loved that I could, technically, do my entire face with it from primer to powder oroducts
Washing it is also not intuitive. Imagine washing a stuffed animal trying to get stains out of the cloth. Each time I’ve used a different soap hoping something would work easier but the most noticeable thing is that after having been washed it’s left feeling a bit stiff. It’s almost like I should have used a conditioning soap with it.
It didn’t seem to absorb much of the products used
I was going to hold off on a review until I felt more comfortable using the product so I could “give it a fair chance” but after Tati released her video on how to use it, I felt like I should review what my first experiences were.
I have to start by saying how surprised I am to have gotten my order so quickly!
Being such a Disney fan I knew I was going to get this as collection as soon as they announced it so I placed my order first thing Monday morning and by Tuesday evening (today) it was here!
I didn’t purchase the eyeshadow palette because I needed something to ask for as a Christmas present, lol!
The packaging on these is so beautiful.
ince they just arrived I haven’t had a chance to try everything so I’ll only be reviewing the Zero to Hero collection.
The highlight is a beautiful sheer Lilac highlight with a small amount of glitter. It’s a pressed highlight and does feel and look a little more powdery than their super shock highlights. I wasn’t able to get a good picture of a swatch but here are the swatches from Colourpop’s website
The collection includes highlights and blushes. If the blushes are anything like Colourpop’s typical pressed blush I know I’ll love them.
I was intrigued by the liquid lipsticks given that they’re a new “Lux Liquid Lipstick” formula
This is Wonderboy
I love the color and the feel is so soft! It feels almost moussey? It glides on very smoothly and pigmented. It has a very, very light smell, almost vanilla but it’s so light I might be making that up.
It isn’t transfer proof and I can tell I’ll have to reapply throughout the day but the formula feels light enough I don’t think I’ll mind.
Overall I would highly recommend the lux liquid lipstick and I’ll have to use the highlighters and blushes to see if I recommend them.
If you’re a Disney nut like me though, you’ll probably get the collection too!
I took advantage of a Beautylish coupon to snag this palette after I was able to swatch it in store.
I really like the smaller packaging, the smaller pan size and the more affordable price point.
I found that there was little to no fallout, even with the redder colors, and the shimmers applied great with a wet brush and finger. For the most part I avoid applying shimmers with a dry brush, regardless of the brand, to avoid fallout and get more pigmentation.
Overall I really enjoy this palette, the colors included and that it’s more affordable so I can feel comfortable recommending it to friends.
I hope they come out with more of these smaller palettes.
