FashionistA Cosmetics review

I received some FashionistA Cosmetics recently and after yesterdays FOTD post I am reviewing all the products I used to create the latest look.
I used FashionistA bronzers in shades Tokyo and Barcelona, blusher in shade Milan, Eyeshadow in shade Trend-Setter, a 2 step mascara and a brow kit. 
I always wanted to have a custom palette, so getting this one was a nice surprise. It is perfect for storing your favourite FashionistA blushers, bronzers and eyeshadows, makes them easy to find and saves space. It is very sturdy and the mirror inside is huge. I have been using it every day when I do my makeup. Great little investment and really good quality.

This bronzer is perfect for contouring and for adding a warm glow to my face. The shade I got is perfect for my skin tone, but I am sure it would work on lighter skin as well. 
There isn't much fallout and it stays on my skin for a couple of hours. 
If I use a setting spray on top of my makeup it stays on all day.

This bronzer is totally different than the ones I tried before. It is quite shimmery, creamy and not very pigmented, but it adds a nice glow to my face. 
If your skin is quite dark, you will be able to use it as a highlighter. 
I apply it on top of the Tokyo bronzer and it looks really nice and adds an extra shimmer to my cheekbones to make them stand out more.

Absolutely gorgeous shade, a medium, warm pink with a bit of shimmer. The consistency is really nice too, it applies beautifully with minimal fallout. It is very pigmented, so don't go crazy. Start with a small amount and build up the colour if you love a lot of blusher on your cheeks. 
It is a bargain at £4 and I am looking forward to swatching more shades in Superdrug. 
Let's hope my local one stocks FashionistA cosmetics.

This product is my favourite from the ones I received. I own a couple of brow kits- Urban Decay, Benefit and some cheap ones too and this one is comparable to the high end ones. 
The thing I like the most is the colour choice, you get 3 different shades of brown, so it is suitable for blondes and brunettes. There is also clear wax to smooth the eyebrows down and keep the shape in place all day. The kit comes with tiny tweezers and a brush, so it includes everything you need to have perfect eyebrows. I am very impressed with this set. It is much cheaper than the other ones I own and does the exact same job.

FashionistA Double Take Baked Eyeshadow in Trend-Setter* £4.00
I wasn't sure about this eyeshadow when I first opened it but as soon as I applied it onto my eyelids I fell in love with the colour. All the shades blend together to create a multi dimensional colour and if you use  a wet brush the pigmentation is amazing. There is specks of yellow, white and purple, but the final colour is a gorgeous deep blue. I used a primer with this eyeshadow, because there was a lot of fallout. My face was covered with glitter! I will be more careful the next time :)

 This is the only product I didn't like. I am not a fan of two step mascaras, because they seem to turn my eyelashes grey, or in this case-they don't give me any extra volume or length. I usually skip the first step, but for review purposes I followed the instructions. The white coat never dries... and once I applied the actual mascara it wasn't sticking to my lashes at all. I am very confused about this one.

You can get the new FashionistA range in Superdrug stores.
