Cresty Brows and Mascara set - IMATs contributor

So with IMATS upon us I thought I would see if I could review some brands showing there this weekend. So my posts are going to mostly be makeup inspired this next two weeks to hopefully preview what is going to been shown. Now Cresty cosmetics are not known to me and I did notice that the majority of IMATS companies showing are USA or European based. Cresty being based in the Netherlands are showcasing a variety of products.
Cresty is distributed by Perfect Products .

Cresty says 


Cresty delivers a variety of high quality beauty products
Our trendy cosmetics are a guaranteed sales hit. the profits margins for our products are excellent.
Our productline contains popular beauty products and are made with quality in mind.




They kindly sent me samples of the eyebrow kits they offer and mascara with an additional double ended brush. 

Now the eyebrow kit contains a Brow powder with brush and stencils included. It's simple and basic packaging which I like as it serves the purpose without being wasteful. I would have liked more of a case to contain the stencils and kit in one place so its not lost in a makeup kit. Also with double ended brushes you need a case to maintain the brush better I feel. The powder is dark brown and the stencils are labelled to the style wanted.


Now I found the stencils brilliant and really useful for a makeup kit, I have gotten used to doing my own freehand now so I don't use them however I may to show the difference in what each offers as a individual look.
The brushes unfortunately were not of a high quality, the one in the kit was like a fluffy brush and not stiff enough for my liking when doing brows. I prefer a sharp angled sturdy dense brush to do a firm line. Now the brushes included sheded before I even washed them. The only side that didn't was the angled side.


I found the powder up close was a deep brown but on the blending and application it was very brown and then had a tinge of auburn/red to it. Now I don't have any red in my hair so I needed to apply a little more then normal so it seemed more browner then reddish. The powder is very creamy and easy to apply and blend. I was really happy with this powder an will continue to use this happily.s

Now I tried the mascara and cannot say I was impressed, it is extremely wet without actually applying onto the lashes. So I was a little confused as the tube top was so clogged with mascara that I suspected the tube does not close properly at the top. So leakage happens and then its not a attractive mascara to use and I wouldn't want to risk this in my bag. 

So overall the kit is good in the sense the stencils and brow cake powder are amazing and add colour to the brow with no removal during the day. I didn't like the brushes and found only the more dense side of one brush didn't shed, which was disappointing. Also the mascara just i could not see a difference enough for me as i like very bold and obvious eye lashes so if you want a light and natural look then i would think that you would like this mascara.

  5. When there is a need to watch The Simpsons online than you can. It is less costly to use
    any of the above service as compared to watching TV
    programs via TV providers. The movie subscription service is losing nearly 2,000
    films from its streaming catalog, and many of the vanishing titles are exactly
    the kinds of movies classic film fans want to watch.
