I recently received a box of Victoria Jackson Cosmetics to try. I had never heard of the brand before, and was thrilled to play with some new makeup.
I received 5 products, the Foundation Duo compact, a Pressed Powder compact, a Eyebrow Design pen, The Perfect Brush, and the Survival Kit.
The first product I opened up was the make up brush called The Perfect Brush, it’s a dual sided brush with a face brush on one end and an eye brush on the other. I have an obsession with makeup brushes, I could spend an hour at the makeup store running my hands over the brushes. So I knew my first impression of the makeup line would depend on this brush, and I must say I am impressed! I have been using it everyday. It feels full and incredibly soft on both ends and there has been no shedding at all!
Next I opened the Foundation Duo and the Pressed Powder. The Foundation Duo is a pressed oil free foundation compact that comes with two compatible shades side by side. This helps with contouring and camouflaging, and blending to create a perfect match. I am very picky when it comes to foundation, I hate feeling like I am walking around with a mask on. Plus with my oily skin if I wear a heavy foundation my face feels like a greasy mess by the end of the day. I like feeling like my skin can breath. The foundation in this compact is perfect for me, I honestly feel like I am not wearing makeup at all. It goes on light and smooth, covers imperfections and adds a radiance to my skin. However it doesn’t hide my skin, I love that!
The Pressed Powder is also light and airy. It sets the foundation and adds a bit of extra coverage, but its not thick or powdery.
After I finished with the face compacts I opened the Eyebrow Design Pencil in Universal Taupe. I am new to eyebrow pencils, I have bought a few but they intimidate me. I am always a little nervous that I am going to look like my eyebrows are painted on. However what I liked about this pencil is that it is double ended, one end is a great angles pencil and on the other is a brush. This gave me a little bit more confidence with my eyebrows, I was able to apply a little and blend it till it looked exactly how I wanted.
Lastly I opened the Survival Kit, As I took the cover off, I had no idea what I was going to find inside this kit. I was shocked! This is now my travel makeup kit, simple, easy, and everything I could need in a tiny case. This survival kit truly is a busy mommy’s makeup survival kit. With this, there is no excuse for me to look like a hot mess when travelling.
So whats inside?
3 mini double ended brushes
10 eye shadows
5 lip sticks
Plus 2 little mirrors for application.
This kit is awesome, and the pigments on all the powders and lip sticks are very colorful.
I am definitely excited to have Victoria Jackson added to my makeup collection and I will absolutely be exploring more of their products in the future!
