My Thoughts on Freedom Makeup

The brand Freedom makeup is not only a new brand to me, but it grabbed my interest by how striking its similarity is to other more higher end brands out there on the market that does similar products....Yes I am talking about the Anastasia beverly hills products which I have always been tempted by. Packaging wise, I feel that the quality is great and very sturdy for the price which is great for on the go.  So in this post, I will summarise my first impressions of these products.

Pro Brow pomade taupe

This definitely is a product that resembles the Anastasia dipbrow pomade which I have been wanting to try. I tend to use this product for nights out as I find that it does look a bit heavy for day time use in my opinion. Pigmentation wise, this isn't the best and I find that the colour does change throughout the day. Not sure how it compares with the Anastasia dipbrow but for the price that I picked this up for, I can't really complain.

Duo Eyebrow powder Taupe

I really enjoyed using this eyebrow powder as it gives a very natural gradient look to the eyebrows. The two toned shades allows me to have a lighter shade at the front and a deeper shade on the ends of the brows to achieve more definition. There is quite a bit of fallout from the product and once again, the pigmentation isn't that great.

Pro highlight Diffused

Out of all the products here, this is the product that I was the most impressed with. I am now gradually trying out highlighting products and I think that this is the best product that I have in my collection. The product is easy to use and it doesn't accentuate my pores making them look larger than they are. I would describe the highlight as a cool toned shimmer without making your makeup look too over the top. Can see the glow on my skin and it really does make a difference to my makeup look giving me much more radiance. 

Pro cream strobe palette with brush

The most expensive product out of the lot but I have to say that it was the most dissapointing. The colour range in this palette is great and the brush that it comes with is of a satisfactory quality too. However, the product itself if not pigmented at all and I found myself layering these cream products so much. I have tried using my fingers, brushes and my beauty blender but it seems like these cream products just dissapear onto my skin. 

Pro contour shaped stick medium

The shading colour is a bit too warm for contouring in my opinion but its ok to use it as a base for other products on top. This product is easy to use and handy to take around for travelling. Once again, it lacked pigmentation which can be frustrating after having to reapply. I also found that it was quite hard to blend evenly. The lid cracked easily which made it no longer secure anymore so I had to be extra careful with it in my makeup bag.

In conclusion, I think that I wouldn't make a purchase from Freedom makeup again. Although the prices are cheaper than the higher end brands, I think that the quality of the products definitley is a reflection of the pricing. The only products that I would consider myself buying more of are their wonderful highlighters which I have been loving these couple of months.

  3. The products definitely have reminiscent vibes of other brands. Those brands that tend to dupe high end established brands tend to perform poorly. Shame it didn't meet expectations x

  7. I'm so glad I read this because I was fully ready to spend quite a bit on this brand in the future! The swatches look so good for that cream strobing kit, I'd have loved it if it were any good :( I'm interested in comparing their pomade to the ABH one as Jasmine said, because they are around 3X the price!

  9. never heard of freedom as a brand but the products do look great. the palette looks amazing. its a shame that the shades aren't pigmented enough.


  10. It's a shame that some of the products didn't live up to expectations but then I guess they worth worth trying for the price. The highlighter does sound good though and at least you found one product that you really like. :)
