Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

on 1/18/2018 3:25:00 PM


I repurchased this in blonde - because I found auburn too warm toned and dark (even though I have red hair lol). Blonde is quite warm toned, which may be annoying for actual blondes but works out great for me. Brand new, these pencils can be quite hard and don't give much colour payoff but once used a bit this works great for sparse brows. I use this daily, the spooly is great but sometimes the pencil can snap.

Concealers -Tarte -Shape Tape Contour Concealer

on 1/18/2018 3:19:00 PM


Even though I had help from an Ulta sales associate I ended up buying AND returning 3 different shades of Shape Tape before finding the correct shade. It is an awesome product once you find the right shade. I found that it is long lasting, not greasy and doesn't settle into my under eye lines. I use a nice concealer brush that I bought at Sephora to apply. I am in my 60's and it is not always easy to find a product that looks this good on aging skin. Tarte just came out with Shape Tape Foundation and I can't wait to try it! .... not that I need anymore makeup mind you.

Liquid -Dior -Diorskin Forever Undercover 24H

on 1/18/2018 3:13:00 PM


Amazing lightweight formula for a FULL coverage and a luminous matte finish that lasts 24H.
Claims: 100% camouflage, 100% wear, 100% weightless

It’s Dior’s highest pigment foundation,so it may seem darker than your usual Dior shade. It’s best to get a colour match first but HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

There’s a new bottle design as it’s plastic not glass - however it’s designed for in your makeup bag or on the go like for makeup artists and many of us really who are constantly carrying makeup around with them.
AND it’s designed for Dior Backstage! So if it makes those catwalk models look flawless then I’m gonna give it a go!
So there’s no more smashed glass + foundation all over the bottom of your makeup bag!🙌🏻

You also get 40ml - an extra 10ml for £34 whereas foundations are normally 30ml. For example, Diorskin Forever which is 30ml for £35 so your saving £1 and getting more!! (UK prices)

It’s a water based formula so you have to shake it first before use - shake it to wake it😉

I absolutely love this foundation because it gives me a flawless, full coverage, matte look that doesn’t feel heavy or like a mask, non cakey and lasts all day!

P.s. If you have dry skin or DON’T want a full coverage, matte look then this is NOT the foundation for you! Don’t worry, Diorskin Star is good for a dewy, medium coverage look!

Eyeliner -Smashbox -always on gel liner

on 1/18/2018 2:48:00 PM

I have this in Fishnet (black) and I'm pretty impressed with it. It goes on super smoothly so I can easily get a clean, sharp line but it stays creamy for a few seconds so I can smudge it out a bit if that's the look I want. After it sets it really is budgeproof, but it still comes off fairly easily at the end of the day (I do use an eye make up remover but its not one for waterproof/longwearing make up and it works fine with this). I have no problems with sharpening although the outer part of the pencil is pretty hard so I think you need a decently sharp pencil sharpener. My NARS and Urban Decay sharpeners have no problems with it. I always prefer a pencil you sharpen instead of a twist-up one as you can get a finer point that way. You also tend to get more product in this kind of pencil - compare this at 0.04oz to the Smashbox Always Sharp at 0.01oz- so its good value. I'm planning to buy again

Liquid -Revlon -Colorstay 24hrs Makeup SPF 15 Combination/Oily Skin (US pump bottle)

Been using for about 4 years now consistently. Love this product!!

Moisturizers -Clinique -Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer

on 1/18/2018 2:30:00 PM


My skin is dry-combination right now and I'm always trying to find good moisturizers.when I went to repurchase clinique moisture surge,which I love,SA suggested me to try this one as moisture surge was out of stock and she said that pep-star hydroblur will prevent my foundation from sticking to my dry patches and get flakey
It's an ok moisturizer but I believe it's better suited for people with drier and more mature skin because it blurs fine lines a bit and mature skin aren't usually acne prone
It has a very thick texture,so you'd like it only if you like rich can feel too heavy for people with oily skin and may cause was a good makeup base for me but was a bit oily for my tzone and I felt it's clogging my pores
I won't repurchase

Brows -Maybelline -Define-A-Brow [DISCONTINUED]

on 1/18/2018 2:25:00 PM


I was bummed that this was discontinued because I love the color dark blonde, and the pencil is incredibly easy to use. BUT, when I went out to find a dupe color, I realized the Maybelline it is ridiculously expensive! Seriously. .001 oz. for $5-$10? Crazy. I found a color dupe in Sephora Crayon Sourcils Retractable brow pencil, Neutral Gray Brown. $12 for .003 oz. Do the math. Farewell, Maybelline.

Tinted Moisturizer -Dr. Jart+ -Ceramidin Day Tint SPF 15

on 1/18/2018 2:22:00 PM


Sweet fancy Moses on the mountaintop...this stuff is HG for sure! Super light, emollient texture that goes on smooth and ends up looking soft and airbrushed (and not shiny at all) on your face. Didn't need a blender brush to buff it out like I do with NARS TM - just slapped it on with my hands and it looks fabulous! Doesn't settle into wrinkles or pores, doesn't accentuate dry spots (in fact, my skin feels moisturized perfectly). Great stuff for my super weird, sensitive, dry but prone to perioral dermatitis flare ups, skin. Very light, unobtrusive "sunscreen" like scent. This is the stuff I've been looking for since they discontinued La Mer Fluid Tint SPF 18 - VERY similar in texture and coverage. I'd say this is a close match for the La Mer FT in "Light" - it's more yellow-based than Dr. Jart's BB creams by far. It's also on par with Laura Mercier in "Nude" and NARS in "Alaska". LOVE this stuff.

Eye Shadow -Cover Girl -Eye Enhancers 4 Kit Eye Shadow in Natural Nudes

on 1/18/2018 2:13:00 PM


This is appropriately named, because this quad gives a natural look, with subtle color/definition. Great for everyday, and not overly shimmery, but not chalky matte. I don't like how dark/bright colors look on me, so this natural looking shade collection is perfect for me. I use the hgihlight shade on my browbone, then mix the two medium shades for an all over lid color, then I blend the darkest taupe into my crease and my eyes are more defined. I am on my 2nd one, so yes, I'd repurchase!

Brows -Rimmel -Brow This Way - brow styling gel

on 1/18/2018 2:06:00 PM


I use this in "001 Blonde" even though I have light brown/highlighted hair. This is a deep enough taupe that it works perfectly with my hair/brow color. I would not say it's a cool taupe, more like a neutral, leaning slightly warm. I love the small/slim brush, and that the formula holds well without being overly stiff. This fills in/shapes my brows well enough that I can skip pencil lining them, so it's super quick/easy. Price is great too at around $4! I am on my 2nd tube, and will repurchase!
