Eye Shadow -L.A. COLORS -Sunflower trio

Such a pretty palette with nice saturation and shimmer sans glitter and that makes a big difference. I just wore this trio last night. I prefer more natural looks so I layered the darkest olive/brownish tone on my lower lids then blended the middle lighter bronzey shade on the rest of my lids, with a pop of the sunshine gold in the center. It was very pretty and lasted all night after priming with ELF's mineral primer which is great for night time because it has a natural shimmer in it too.

Polishes -L.A. COLORS -Color Last Nail Polish

on 11/7/2018 3:22:00 PM

I bought this nail polish at Walmart for $2 because I liked some of the colors. The colors I bought are Never Ending (bright coral/ in the 1st photo I uploaded), and Family Ties (bright fuchsia, in the 2nd photo, with a white base cot and a top coat). The formula is almost jelly- like, opaque in 2 coats, and not streaky. The brush is a little wide for my small-ish nail beds, but it was fine until I got to my pinky. With Seche Vite top coat, after a day I can see some minor tip wear, so I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll get anywhere near the 10 day claim, but not bad for $2! I like these and will probably get more colors eventually.

Highlighters -L.A. COLORS -Contour Stick

I found this 'contour stick' in the shade "Highlighter" at the dollar store for $1. I'm in a phase of using cream products all over my face recently, and I figured that since I have very fair skin, I could use this when I'm on the go. The price is great, and I like that L.A. Colors is cruelty free. The ingredients listed on the stick are: isopropyl myristate, mica, paraffin, mineral oil, ethylhexyl palmitate, polyethylene, beeswax, hydrogenated coconut oil. May contain iron oxides. There are 1.9 grams of product in the container. This particular shade is a light, shimmery champagne.
The stick is convenient, and I haven't had any problems with the lid coming off in the couple of weeks or so since I've been carrying this in my purse. I've used it less as a solo highlighter than as a concealer in conjunction with the other contour stick I have. I've used it a couple of times to help cover up my massive undereye circles at work. First I put a couple of strokes of the contour stick on, blend them in, and then blend another stroke or 2 of the highlighter on top. The cream feels kind of like the concealer sticks of my youth--thick and somewhat oily--but not quite as much as the contour stick. It's somewhat sheer, so if you were using this as an actual highlighter you might have to layer it on. (I should try that, but it's hard to find the time to do everything you would like to do with your makeup.) This shade might have more impact on darker skins.
I'm happier with this product than the other contour stick because it's more versatile and fun. It's not a must-have, but would be a good addition to any makeup collection, especially for someone who wants to experiment with the highlight trend without spending a lot. Definitely a good buy for $1.

Contour -L.A. COLORS -Contour Stick

on 10/30/2018 12:34:00 PM

I found this 'contour stick' in the shade "Light to Brighten" at the dollar store for $1. I'm in a phase of using cream products all over my face recently, and I figured that since I have very fair skin, I could use this as a concealer when I'm on the go. The price is great, and I like that L.A. Colors is cruelty free. The ingredients listed on the stick are: isopropyl myristate, paraffin, mineral oil, ceresin, mica, ethylhexyl palmitate, polyethylene, beeswax, hydrogenated coconut oil. May contain iron oxides, titanium dioxide. There are 1.9 grams of product in the container.
The stick is convenient, and I haven't had any problems with the lid coming off in the couple of weeks or so since I've been carrying this in my purse. I've used it a couple of times to cover up my massive undereye circles at work, and once on a blemish. The shade is slightly 'off' for my skin tone, and the cream feels like the concealer sticks of my youth--thick and somewhat oily. It looks better if I use 2-3 strokes of this stick under my eyes, blend a little and then blend a little of the highlighter stick (separate review) over it. It's obviously not perfect, but for inexpensive emergency makeup it does the job.
I put 'yes' that I would buy this again because it works for the price and I'm glad I have it. However, probably next time I'll get a little more expensive liquid concealer to carry in my makeup bag.


Liquid -L.A. COLORS -Radiant Liquid Makeup

I adore this foundation. It's my current go-to. I love it more than their Truly Matte foundation. I have super oily skin but contrary to popular belief matte foundations don't always look good for my skin type. Despite being super oily I have the texture of someone with dry skin. I have lots of flaking, blotchy, and just very bumpy skin. Matte foundations tend to look very cakey on me.
This foundation on the other hand goes on so natural looking. It's got a satin/dewy finish and looks very smooth on my skin. It's also lightweight. Coverage is light to medium but if I use 2 pumps I get full coverage. It's very buildable. I set mine with powder just for longer wear. I use the shade 'Light Tan' and it's a nice fit for my yellow undertones. I tried the shade 'Medium Tan' but it was a little too pink. The shade range is just as bad as their Truly Matte ones. There's not enough shades. I will never understand why they can't add a full range of shades to fit everyone.
Nevertheless you can try mixing and matching. I love how affordable it is and I'll definitely repurchase.
