Though it hasn't been long since my last post about Paris Hilton Cosmetics, I was recently able to track down a few new items from her collection. This is no easy feat! Finding makeup from her line requires lots of browsing and wishful thinking. So, when I came across the Beauty & the Blush makeup brush set and the Pretty Fun and Fearless holographic lip gloss set (on sale!), these simply had to come home with me. How do these perform? Are they standouts or so-so? Here is everything you need to know about these Paris Hilton products.
Beauty & the Blush - 3 Piece Brush Essentials
It's true. I am a complete and total sucker for cute packaging and flashy beauty products. Which is how I wound up purchasing this brush set, knowing full well that it would be difficult to use. As you can see from the picture above, the brushes look like roses. The handles are thin and even have faux thorns jutting out every now and then. They are painted in gorgeous mermaid-type colours (pink, purple, turquoise, and gold) and have a stunning metallic finish. The bristles come out of the flower on top to create the illusion of a rose. Amazing, right? I love the Beauty and the Beast inspiration and of course, how incredible these look both in and out of the package. The only snag is that these are clumsy to use and as a result, it is unlikely that I will reach for them on a regular basis.
Pretty Fun and Fearless - Holographic Lip Gloss
Some of the items in my Paris Hilton makeup collection are iridescent or holographic, which ties in nicely to the unicorn/mermaid-esque theme the recent products seem to be focused on. Many of them are absolutely fabulous. Pigmented, pretty, and totally out of the box. Sadly, this holographic lip gloss set is seriously lacking in the pigmentation part. It comes with four shades (a pink, yellow, blue, and purple) but when swatched or worn on the lips, they all kind of look the same. They have a nice shimmery finish but don't look holographic. Even when layered on top of another lipstick. Such a letdown! I really wanted these to be amazing because the tubes are gorgeous and they honestly looked so stunning. Ahh well, you win some you lose some.
Though my Paris Hilton makeup collection is always growing...these products were so-so for me. The brushes look gorgeous but aren't easy to use while the lip glosses have incredible packaging but lack the pigmentation needed to really see that holographic finish come to life. Even though these aren't exactly what I hoped they would be, you'd better believe I will keep searching for more Paris Hilton Cosmetic products!
