Merit review


Hello, you all makeup enthusiasts! I am sure we have all heard about this wonderful makeup brand I am about to review. Many of you raved about their IG cult-favorite flush balm. But perhaps many of you, as well, have not tried their other “exceptional” products.


Merit Beauty review


The Merit beauty products are a staple in many influencers’ makeup trays, and there is a big reason why. Their products are multi-purpose, easy to apply, and easy to love with their various shade ranges. Not to mention the clean ingredient philosophy that the brand boasts about their products.


I had the opportunity to sample a few Merit beauty products, and here are my top favorites:


Merit The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Foundation and Concealer Stick in cream


The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Foundation and Concealer Stick in Cream – This multi-use concealer, which can also be used as a foundation, depending on the application, is just perfect in every way. The texture is just right. Not too creamy and not too dry and stiff. The formula blends well on the skin upon contact, giving good coverage day and night. I find this to be the perfect concealer for the undereyes because there is no caking or cracking, and it does not get runny under extreme humidity or sweat. The product is easy to apply with its twist-up application, and the packaging is well-designed and looks very luxe.



Merit Brush No. 2 Double-Sided Eyeshadow Brush

Brush No. 2 Double-Sided Eyeshadow Brush – I may have found the right eyeshadow for my small lids. I love this brush so much because it has two sides that can cater well to those with dainty lids and regular ones. I find that I can apply my eyeshadows better with this brush, and it picks up the right amount of powder or cream eyeshadow so well. The bristles are soft, and the brush is not too long, which is ergonomic for those with tiny baby fingers.


merit flush balm review


Flush Balm Cream Blush in PersimmonWarm coral copper. This is the perfect all-in-one blush and lip color for fall. The persimmon shade is so pretty and will work with any skintone. Ever since my first experience with the Merit Flush Balm in Cheeky, reviewed HERE, I have been hooked. I would love to have this product in different colors because the formula glides effortlessly on the skin. It is not too shiny or matte but more satin-like, and each color is just so downright stunning.


Merit Solo Shadow Cream-to-Powder Soft Matte Eyeshadow in Viper swatch


Solo Shadow Cream-to-Powder Soft Matte Eyeshadow in ViperMatte olive green. This is the first time I tried Merit’s eyeshadow, and I am impressed. The lasting power of the solo shadow is just out of this world. I tried the viper shade, and the color lasted more than 24 hours on me. Even after wiping the shade out, I could still see traces of it. The eyeshadow is creamy and so easy to blend and apply. I find that the product works well with the Merit Brush No.2 above.


Merit Clean Lash Lengthening Tubing Mascara

Clean Lash Lengthening Tubing Mascara – This plant-derived vegan mascara works well to curl lashes for hours and hours. I do not think I have found an excellent vegan mascara as good as this. Most of the vegan all-natural mascaras I have tried before are just meh. They never lasted long on me until I tried this. Apart from the staying power of this mascara, I also love that it does not irritate my eyes. Therefore, no eye-itchiness with this, no clumps, just beautiful, long, well-curled lashes.

Bottom line, Merit beauty products will be a staple on my desk and vanity table. I love their products because of their amazing shade range and impressive formulas. Each product released is well-curated and worth every penny. Therefore, I highly recommend them.
