Eye Shadow -MAC -Frost - Amber Lights

on 1/10/2018 10:35:00 PM


This is often touted as a good color for women of color. I have a medium dark skin tone with caramel undertones - NC44/45. This looked okay in the store but when I got home and tried to work with it, turned out to have too much glitter and A LOT of fall out. It does not blend well either and I actually had more success using my fingers to apply than a shadow brush. It is a Frost and I have used Satin Taupe, another Frost for years. But SF is much more bendable and has a lot less fall out than this shade.

It also did not pair well with the other neutral shadows in my makeup bag, It is quite bronzey and shimmery. At most, I would use this as a highlight color under my brow but for the price ($16), I don't think it is worth its so I will be returning it. I recommend trying it on in the store, wearing for a while and then determine how you like it before actually purchasing it.

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Verite Moisture Relief Cream

Was not sufficiently moisturizing for me, especially in the winter months. Overall, not too bad but not good enough to warrant repurchase.

Blush -BeneFit Cosmetics -GALifornia

on 1/10/2018 10:25:00 PM


You either like BeneFit products, or you don't.. I find people either love or hate the products and the packaging, I'm a fan. Galifornia is very similar to TheBalm's "Frat Boy" blush, and even though I have that, I still purchased Galifornia. I really don't wear a lot of peachy looks, (I'm more of a mauve lover) but when I do, I definitely reach for this. I love the packaging, and because I store all my makeup in clear acrylic drawers, it doesn't get messed up. It has great pigmentation and lasting power, and I definitely recommend this vibrant peachy blush!

Liquid -Givenchy -Eclat Matissime Fluid Foundation

on 1/10/2018 10:23:00 PM


I bought this one in summer.usually my skin is almost normal-combination in forehead and nose gets a bit shiny but when I touch it it's not oily at all(I don't know why it shines!).other parts of my skin look like normal but if I wear a foundation without applying moisturizer(any foundation)it gets flakey and cakey
I asked SA to introduce me something with medium coverage and natural finish and I said that I prefer my foundation to have SPF(I'm too lazy to wear a separate sunscreen cream).I told here that however my skin doesn't seem to be dry,it sometimes acts as a crazy dry skin so very thick and dry foundations and matte ones are a no-no for me
I remember she introduced me couple of foundations and I tried them on skin and hubby voted for this one.seeing the word"matte" in it frightened me but SA assured me that I'd like it.
back then it was the most expensive foundation I ever had so I had a lot of expectations and it didn't disappoint.unlike other matte foundations it blends on easily on my face and I love it's satin-like's not too matte but not dewy makes my skin look fresh and as if I don't have much makeup on and I love this
It's not a full coverage foundation but I don't need to use any concealer while using it,except for my dark skin looks evened out and flawless and I like the fact that it has buildable coverage and won't get cakey when I apply more than one also has very good longevity(without applying any primer or setting it with powder or spray)and after hours when it's about to fade,doesn't turn patchy and ugly,it just gradually fades has a pretty scent but didn't cause any breakouts even though I have a sensitive and reactive skin.and I agree with below review that it has a good effect on my skin looked more healthy and I had less pimples and blackheads than usual
It was a perfect foundation for me but I haven't used it in recent two months for some reasons:
I bought it in shade "4 matte beige" it was good for my tanned skin in summer but now it's too dark for me..second and more important,my skin is dry now.when I used it two months ago it turned to be flakey in some parts and clinged to my dry patches even though I was using moisturizer
It's biggest CONS:
-It's expensive.I bought it for 55$
-It's not easy to find here.I know just one mall which has it
-It's packaging is annoying.It's easy to carry and take it to travel.find it cute but I also like to be able to see how much product is left in foundation tubes.It's also not easy to squirts sometimes,I think whenever I reach to it's last ml s it can be difficult to takeout the also gets messy around it's spray part
After reading it's reviews and remembering how much I loved it,I've decided to give it another go tomorrow,this time with a richer moisturizer or I may blend it with some face oil.I hope it works as I'm sure there's still a lot of product left in it's tube
I'm reducing it from 5 lippie to 3
I gave it another chance today and now I'm ready to cry
It's orange-ish on my pale skin but this is not my only problem
I applied it on my bare skin and on the other side,I used moisturizer and then my looked terrible on both side and emphasized on each of my dry patches and was very cakey(to be honest,it was even worse on moisturized part).it didn't have satisfying coverage either
I'm very sad because most of it is left and it was expensive.what a waste! I can't fully blame this foundation because nowadays 95% of foundations sit like this on my skin but I can remember how flawless and perfect once it was on my face!
It's totally useless for me now but I'm going to miss it's gorgeous smells exactly like rose petals

Eye Shadow -Cargo -The Essentials Eye Shadow Palette

on 1/10/2018 10:12:00 PM


This palette is in a set with a deluxe size Cargo mascara for $9.99 @ Marshall's right now.. They have a ton of leftover Christmas boxed sets from Kohl's... This palette retails for $34 on it's own, and it is really good quality, not just good for the price, it's not a perfect 5 lippies, but it's a solid 4.3.. I don't buy stuff just because it's cheap. My next door neighbors granddaughter works at the Marshall's near me, and she always texts me when they are about to put out any good higher end makeup like KVD, Lorac, Stila, ABH, etc... so I always get there right away to rummage through it lol.. Check out your local Marshall's.

Moisturizers -Philosophy -Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer

on 1/10/2018 9:44:00 PM


It is a ridiculous product that I got: it is glue-like. I applied it to my neck and it felt sticky. When it dried in a few minutes it turned white like dry glue, and tightened my skin like a glue that had dried on your skin (unpleasant sensation), and then those white flakes began peeling off! Incredible experience! Rushed to a mirror and was shocked to see myself covered with white cracking film peeling off! I had to wash it off. I am confused: how do you people use it?!

Cleansers -Garnier -All-in1 Mattifying

on 1/10/2018 9:41:00 PM


Tried all of Garnier's micellar waters and this is the only one I've repurchased. Great at removing makeup, also use it to freshen up throughout the day sometimes. The mattifying effect is really nice. It can be slightly drying if used too much.

Cleansers -CeraVe -Foaming Facial Cleanser

on 1/10/2018 9:31:00 PM


I have been using this cleanser for three months now and will continue, it's my favorite(and I've tried quite a few. Leaves my skin soft, isn't drying at all, and a little goes a long way. My skin loves the ingredients and is noticeably brighter and less oily.
