Yes, Oh Yas! September 2018 Review
This month includes 4 makeup items including a palette and a brush set. Let’s see what they sent!
The included info card lists names and values for each item and gives you an idea of the theme.
Between the holographic packaging and this holo palette, my eyes are delighted. I wish the same was true for the powders in the palette. Ok…not to be harsh, but they aren’t “holo,” they’re iridescent. A couple of them are even duo-chrome! I tend toward more natural colors for my facial highlights, but I think these make for great eyeshadow toppers. There seems to be an overspray of more shimmery texture, but once you get past that, they are soft and almost creamy feeling. The subtle metallic effect isn’t as impactful as some similar products but is pretty and easy to wear.
Chella Beauty Matte Lipstick in Wondrous Wine – Retail Value $20
I really didn’t know what to expect from this lip pencil. The packaging made me think bright orange but it’s actually a deep red-wine shade. And super matte! I enjoy pencil formulas for how easy application can be. this one is a little difficult to get a crisp line with, but a pass of a lip brush to neaten edges helps. I applied a coat, blotted, and applied again and was surprised at the staying power. Even after the initial layer wore off (after a dressing-heavy salad) there was still a stain-like flush left.
Glo Stix Semi-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Honey Bun – Retail Value $18 (currently sold-out)
*Sigh* I’m pretty sure I’ve tried every one of the 4 shades of this liquid lipstick at some point. Although I love this plummy shade a lot, this formula and I aren’t meant for each other. I like that it doesn’t dry down completely and suck the life out of my lips, but it is just too high maintenance for me. It only takes a few sips of coffee for it to start wearing off in a chunky way. When it’s time to touch up, it needs to be removed completely before reapplying.
Aesthetica Pro Series 3-Piece Eye & Brow Brush Set – Retail Value $45
I love that this set is basically everything you’d need to create the cleanest brows and cat eye you could ever want. The angle brush and liner brush are sharp, yet soft, and perfect for either filling in brows or applying liner to the lashline. The spoolie is also soft and works to blend color into your eyebrows for a natural look. The synthetic bristles work well with creams, gels, or powders too. The value seems super high compared to other brands, but they are good brushes, so I’m not complaining.
Here’s a look with the Glo Stix liquid lip and Naked Cosmetics highlighter palette used as eyeshadow. After applying a matte crease shade, I patted a bit of the purple and pink shades on to my inner corner with my fingertip. For extra oomph, I used the liner brush to apply some of the blueish shade to my bottom lashline. I then used the angled liner brush to pack a bit of charcoal-colored shadow onto my top and bottom lash line.
Verdict: This month’s Yes, Oh Yas! has a value of $122.99 which is great for a cost of $14.99 +$3.99 shipping. I’m happy with most of the items this month. The only one I’m not a fan of is the Glo Stix liquid lip, but in general Yes, Oh Yas! has been including good quality, fun products. I can tell that they are evolving every month as a subscription and I’m excited to see what’s included next month.
