Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -Micro Brow Pencil

on 4/26/2018 12:56:00 PM


I regret purchasing this and am unable to return it now. Believe the other reviewers when they state that this is NOT a dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz. I stupidly decided to buy it anyway. The brow pencil is very hard and waxy, making it impossible to sketch in natural looking brows. I have this in taupe which has too much red in it. Also, this does not last all day, it fades on my brows before the day is half over. And on days, I work out, it disappears immediately.

Concealers -Pixi -Correction Concentrate- Brightening Peach

on 4/26/2018 12:53:00 PM


I didn't want to go to a two-step method for concealer but one-step wasn't doing it. This nicely covers my purple under-eye circles and it lasts well too. Dry, mature skin that is clog-prone makes finding a concealer a nightmare. It either shows off every wrinkle, doesn't cover, doesn't last, causes milia, or some ugly combination of the above. Pixi with an NYX doe-foot concealer (I forget the name) on top is the charm. The color looks crazy in the jar, so give this a chance before you say it won't work. I use a teeny amount of this and I use it every day. Still, I am not sure I'll need to repurchase.

Lip Liners -Cargo -Swimmables Lip Pencil

on 4/26/2018 12:52:00 PM

I have this in the color Canaria, which is nude color. I did not find this lip liner to be waterproof or long lasting. It lasted as long as any other lip liner I have ever used.

Lipstick -Buxom -Va-Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick

on 4/26/2018 12:50:00 PM


I have this in Wine Me, which is a rich ruby red. Color is saturated and has a good shine. Long lasting and has a slight scent. This is not a good color match for me.

Blush -MILANI -Rose Powder Blush in Romantic Rose

on 4/26/2018 12:45:00 PM


While researching a dupe for Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in "exposed", I found Milani's Romantic Rose was very similar in color. I love this blush, very natural. Would buy it again.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Eyeshadows (all)

on 4/26/2018 12:44:00 PM


I'm on the bandwagon with these e/s. I have mature, dry skin and the older I get, the more trouble I have with e/s making me look worse rather than better. This mousse-y formula glides over the eyelids and looks lovely. It lasts great too with a primer. Truth is my daily shade and I repurchase two at a time. I generally do a single all-over shade, so I can't comment about issues with blending and layering. I could see how that might be a problem. I have a glittery shade for evening and it does have fall out. However, the formula and price easily make up for any short comings. I have not been as impressed with other CP products, but the e/s are awesome in my opinion.

Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works -Super Smoth Body Lotion in Pretty as a Peach

on 4/26/2018 12:43:00 PM

Synthetic peach scented lotion. It's OK but peach is a hard one to get right.
I got this 3 oz. "fun size" free at BBW. Not worth $5.50. For free? It's fine. There are other BBW scents I prefer over this one.

Liquid -Dior -Diorskin Airflash

on 4/26/2018 12:42:00 PM


The BEST ever!!! Im asking for another one for my birthday ha. I can skip powder and concealer with this so I feel justified in using it lol. You look like you got your makeup professionally done everyday. No pores or wrinkles show, no more need for blotting papers or loose powder. And it takes seconds to put on (yes I spray it) Try it, you’re worth it:)

Foundations -Japonesque -Luminous Foundation (All shades)

on 4/26/2018 12:31:00 PM


This is my current holy grail foundation. I have dry, mature skin which clogs easily, so it's a challenge to find a moisturizing foundation that doesn't break me out. I love this and have repurchased it. I have fair skin with pink undertones and I have colors 3 and 5 to get me through the seasons. It does not last throughout the day as well in the summer, so I may try the Japonesque primer. Though I really don't want to add another step to my morning ritual. I use a very emollient s/s in the fall and winter, so I powder my forehead and neck to improve wear and reduce transfer. I think I may buy a couple of back ups because HG status for me generally means products being discontinued shortly - just warning ya!

My new signature scent. It's soo light and lovely. Office friendly and it never makes my eyes water. I love catching a whiff of this scent throughout the day.
