review: banggood

There is always this flutter of excitement when something arrives in the mail. What will it be? And more importantly....what will it be like? That is exactly how I felt when my order arrived from Banggood. (You can check out some of the awesome items they offer at I had picked out a couple of special items and could not wait to get my hands on them. Those items included a new foundation brush and a ton of gorgeous glitters. No wonder my excitement level was at an all time high. For today's post, I wanted to show you the items I received and give you a full review of each one.

Oval Foundation Brush: 

The first item is the 1Pcs Professional Oval Makeup Cosmetic Contour Brush Foundation Powder Cream Puff Brushes Tool. I chose option number 003 because it seemed like the perfect size. Not too big and not too small. Just right. And it was! The size is perfect for foundation application. Despite all of the makeup brushes in my collection....I had never tried an oval shaped brush before. I know these are gaining in popularity, so I wanted to try one out for myself. The brush has a flexible black handle and an oval shape with soft, dense bristles. Since using it? I have fallen in love. It makes foundation application totally seamless. The product looks super natural on my skin because the brush buffs it in effortlessly. Such a fan of this one! The quality is fantastic (I am a sucker for a brush with ultra soft bristles) and it works really well. This brush was definitely a winner for me.

Glitter Eyeshadow Pigments: 

The obsession is real. To say I was thrilled with the 30 Colors 1 Set Glitter Spangle Eye Shadow Powder Pigment Kit Makeup Cosmetic Tool would be a serious understatement. I am in love. For the last little while, I have been all about glitter eye looks. The only problem? I only had two shades of glitter. That limited the kind of looks I could create. That is what prompted my choice of the set of 30. Yes, thirty. As you can see from the photo above? There are so many gorgeous shades! Blues, greens, purples, pinks, gold, silver, copper, yellows....absolutely everything. I now have a complete set of loose glitter. That makes me so happy! Each glitter comes in a small clear container with a screw off top. There is quite a lot of product in each one and the glitters are breathtaking. Some of the shades make me positively giddy. Confession. I have already whipped up a few ultra glittery makeup looks, but keep your eyes peeled! I will be doing some tutorials both here and on my YouTube channel. So excited to keep using these. I honestly love them so much.

My experience with Banggood was amazing. I am absolutely loving the products. Everything I received exceeded my expectations and then some. (Those glitters, though! Love!)
