My Honest Ogee Makeup Review

My Honest Ogee Makeup Review
  1. Carol says:

    I think the blush is too rosy on your skin. My skin is also fair but I have natural rosy cheeks. Is there any way to make the color less rosy. I was going to order this but if you can answer my question it will hp md decide…thanks

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Hi Carol! Thanks for your comment! When applied to the skin, the blush looks super pigmented and bright, but once you blend it in, it doesn’t look so bright. In the pictures that I featured on this blog post, I had applied a few layers of the blush on my skin because I like a heavy blush look. But you can definitely add less and achieve a less-rosy effect. Please let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!

    Love this review thank you so much, can anyone answer for me but if I were to order these sticks, do you apply typical foundation, under eye, make up or concealer and powder first, and then use the sticks?

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Thank you! So I will usually apply my powder foundation on first, and then concealer, then all my eye makeup, and then I use the sticks. I don’t like to apply any powder on top of the sticks because I like the glowiness that they give me, and I feel like powder on top would take away from that. I hope this helps!

      I am 53, large pores and wrinkles. How does this fair on these less than attractive skin qualities?

      • Daley Quinn says:

        Because these sticks blend pretty well and leave a bit of a dewy finish, I would say that they would be really suitable for those with mature skin.

  3. Alex says:

    Love this review, I really wanted to buy these but was hesitant because of the price, but you have given me the push I needed to try them out. Just got my order yesterday and am loving them. Thanks! Keep the reviews coming.

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Yay, I’m so glad to hear that! I’ve been using them so so much since I got them. Glad they worked out for you!

    Thank you for the review. I have been using the trio face sticks for about 3 months. I buy/try several high-end makeup brands. For me, OGEE is a game-changer. I love how easy it is to apply. I start by applying MAC Hyper Real Serumizer to my entire face. I then apply Alastin Hydratint Pro Mineral Sunscreen. Once that dries, I apply the three face sticks. Lastly, I used a pressed powder and finish with Urban Decay Allnighter Makeup Setting Spray. I don’t see switching this look up anytime soon. Also, after 3 months of usually the sticks 3-4 a week, there is still plenty of product left and the containers still work well with no issues.

    daley, you look so pretty with the ogee makeup on! i ordered the sculpted face stick in Linden first, and find it’s pretty hard to apply, even with my fingers. any idea if the others (the crystal contour collection sticks) are easier to apply, or just as hard? i’m thinking about ordering the brush too but there’s no way that will spread easier than my warm, body-temp fingers. i keep reading reviews that say they are so easy to apply, but i am having the opposite experience. thanks in advance!

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Hey Katie! Thanks so much! So I haven’t tried the Sculpted Complexion Sticks yet. I just looked up the ingredients for the Sculpted Complexion Sticks vs. the sticks in the Crystal Contour Collection, and it looks like the ingredients are really similar. I’m guessing that the formulas are pretty similar as well. When I first used the Crystal Contour Collection, I was using my fingers to apply it and noticed that my hands didn’t blend in the product as well as a stiff brush does. I think these are one of those products that you really need a brush to apply them with to blend them in smoothly. I wrote a blog post about the MERIT Foundation/Concealer (which is a bit similar to the Ogee Sculpted Complexion Sticks), and I mentioned that I like to dab the stick on red areas of my face and then blend with a brush. I definitely think you should try to either swipe the stick on your skin and then blend it in with a brush, or swipe a brush on top of the stick and then blend the brush into your skin. Personally, I’ve been using my Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation brush and it’s been working really well. I’m sure the Ogee Blender Brush is good for this purpose, too! LMK if you have any more questions and I hope this helps!

    I was wondering if you have tried the Boom Stick trio and if so; between the two which do you recommend?

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Hi! I have not tried the Boom Stick trio and have never heard of it before. From the looks of it, I think the Ogee sticks will give you more color and pigment.

  7. Em says:

    Curious how it holds up after hours of wear and in more hot/humid places like Mexico?

    Would also love to see a review on the foundation sticks.

    They have no return policy right? That’s the biggest con for me.

    • Daley Quinn says:

      I would say that I notice that the blush starts to wear/disappear by the end of the day. I like to reapply the blush during the second half of the day if I am out and about or at a beauty event. I will try to see if I can review the foundation sticks!

  8. Patty Smith says:

    I’ve been on the fence for months about purchasing this Ogee trio, because of the high cost. Thank you for the push I needed to buy them. I’m excited to try it!

  9. Sara Joslyn says:

    Hi, I really love the trio but I don’t seem to be able to get the make up stick “twist “ up so I can continue to use it. Has anybody else had this problem and or what am I doing wrong? Thank you

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Hey Sara! Hmm, I’m not sure about this—I’ve never had that issue. I would reach out to the brand and see if they know how to fix that, or if they can send you a new set, since it seems you might have received a faulty one. Good luck!

  10. Grettie says:

    I also wondered how similar Ogee contour trio is to Boom stick Trio. They are very similar in concept with three sticks , one being a blush and one a shimmer. Both containing Beeswax. I was wondering if Ogee in any way feels sticky or has any odor of rancid oil from the bees wax or nut oils?

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Thanks for your question! I haven’t tried the Boom Stick Trio, so I can’t comment on the formula for those, but I would not consider the Ogee sticks to be sticky. They don’t feel waxy and they feel pretty easy to blend. I just went to go smell them per your request, and they don’t really smell like anything haha! I don’t smell anything rancid. Granted, I’ve had them since Jan or Feb, so who knows how they will smell after a year or so.

  11. Hillari Lube says:

    I love how this product looks in you. Beautiful! How do you think they would be on very dry skin? Dying to try, but like everyone else says they are pricey! Thank you in advance.

    • Daley Quinn says:

      Thanks so much! I think these would look great on dry skin. I have relatively dry skin and I feel like they hydrate my cheeks a lot. But not too much where it looks heavy or oily. I hope this helps!

  12. Hi, I just ordered the contour collection you suggested. I also ordered the complexion stick.
    I realize this is probably a dumb question, but I haven’t been contouring my face. How is it applied? Is contouring under the complexion stick or under. I’m guessing it comes with some type of instructions, but I haven’t received it yet, so thought I’d ask. BTW my daughter in law uses Ogee and it’s amazing how beautiful it looks. My son even noticed and that’s saying a lot! Thanks for the review!

      Love to hear this! You should apply the complexion stick first as a foundation base, and then apply the contour on top of the complexion stick. I like to apply the contour in the hollows of my cheeks, along my temples, and along the ridge of my nose. Then I apply the highlighter on my cheekbones, blend it in, and then apply the blush as the last step.
