Highlighters -TheBalm -Cindy-Lou Manizer

on 3/15/2018 8:51:00 PM


For reference I am about NC20-25. Light medium skin tone with yellow undertone. This I use as blush or a blush topper. A tad too dark for a highlight on my skin. Its fairly subtle, No visible flecks of glitter at all. Beautiful rosy pink glow effects when I use this. Texture is very velvety smooth and not chalky. Lasts fairly well. After about 12 hour wear I can still see it on my cheeks. I love this, reminds me a lot of the Benefit Rockateur Blush. I love that one as well. Highly recommended!

Concealers -Sephora -Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer

on 3/15/2018 8:49:00 PM


This is the holy grail of concealers that are on the cheap end. It isn't cakey, it blends out perfectly and it doesn't crease at all. Sometimes a bad concealer can make you look older, but I've never had an issue with this.

I have shade Fondant and it's become my everyday under eye concealer. Coverage goes on medium/full but it is buildable if you need more. I set it like I would any other concealer and it lasts all day, easily as long as my foundation does.

Primer/ Corrector -Wet 'n' Wild -Photofocus Setting Spray

on 3/15/2018 7:34:00 PM


I only bought this beucause Tati Westbrook on Youtube mentioned it along with Flower Beauty as being good drug store setting sprays. It was a comment in passing. The only other setting spray I"ve used is the Maybelline one which does not stand out in a partically positive or negative way. The one I have says "natural finish"

PROS: I have normal to dry skin and I do feel this adds some luminosity. I am trying for a no makeup look, not really adding products for dimension but just having a healthy sheen/glow. It is the winter right now and usually my skin isn't that much drier, but it is at the moment so I use this to cheat a bit to make my skin look more hydrated. I am using this under The Ordinary's NMF + HA moisturizer, which is a dry-finish/smooth drydown type moisturizer and either Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous, Loreal True Match Lumi, or MUFE ULtra HD foundation, with minimal amount of powder or no powder at all. This is probably overkill however for most people. It can be striaght up LUMINOUS and DEWY looking, like a clear sheen or the need to powder but I'm liking it at the moment. With that I also do feel like it does help my makeup to last and it's cheap.

CONS: The sprayer on this... It is a long spray that practically "blasts" you with ridiculously large drops. No exxagerattion at all! There is nothing mist-like or delicate about it. I would need to hold my arm quite far back to tone it down and I'm just not doing that because it feels wrong and is too far back. WHY do the drops feel gigantic when they hit my skin though!? The Maybelline one wasn't like that. And the width of the spray isn't even that wide, so good luck trying to precisely control it to hit the eye area for example. And I always look WET after I use this, like a mild drenching. I seriously believe they only chose this sprayer for price and fact that the consumer won't be wasting product anytime soon.

While I like that it also does give me some glow, I feel that it doesn't really help powder to meld to the skin or soften a powdery look. If I were to powder too much, this would give me a harsh look or shine over a too matte base, instead of softening the matte look itself, you know what I mean?

I also HATE the fact that it's such a small bottle. This is terrible for the environment because you need to buy twice as much as other setting sprays!

OVERALL: I might actually buy this again because so it does seem to work. I don't mind too much the fact that is sprays the hell out of my face, but I will definitely look at Flower's setting spray as my next purchase. I may try the matte one come summer or read reviews first.

Cleansers -L'Oreal -Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream

on 3/15/2018 7:27:00 PM


Very impressed with this new cleansing cream. I have very dry skin and wear makeup and sunscreen, so I usually double cleanse first with a cream or oil and then with a milk or a non-soap foaming cleanser. This cream is thick and somewhat stiff. Just a small bit will do to spread over the face. It feels like a moisturizing cream, and first time I used it, I had to check to make sure that I hadn't bought the wrong thing.

Then as you massage it on the face, it turns into a slick feeling, almost like a gel. This is just what I'm looking for in a cleanser, because it means it will wash off easily while breaking everything down. And it did! I used a muslin as normal and it came right off. My skin felt so clean and fresh, I decided to skip to second cleanser and to check out how well it worked with a toner from the same line that I've been using for awhile and really enjoy. Not a stitch of makeup on the cotton pad and my skin didn't feel dry or stripped at all.

It's as good as high end brands I've tried and everything in between. It has a light, slightly rose scent as does the toner. Not heavily perfumed, just botanical and fresh. For the price, I really like it and will definitely repurchase. Great for taking off makeup as the first step if you have oilier skin and wish to use a gel cleanser after. But since it didn't leave any residue, it might be all that is needed for every skin type.

Loose Powders -Givenchy -Prisme Libre Loose Powder Quartet Air Sensation

on 3/15/2018 6:51:00 PM


This is an amazing finishing powder. The powder is milled extremely finely and makes your makeup look flawless. The powder itself is not transcluscent on the skin and gives additional coverage. The amount of product in one container is also sufficient to last a long time (I don’t bake, just powder)

The only downside is it’s price.

Lipstick -ColourPop -Lippie Stix - All Colors


I bought the shades "brink" and "love life", and I'm in love. "Love life" is a matte yet not drying red lipstick which feels so smooth on the lips. "Brink" is pink and has a more satin finish. The packaging is good, except the fact that one of the lippie stix didn't want to screw up at first, but it all went well. Can't wait to start using these more often!

Eyeliner -Kat Von D -Tattoo Liner


I bought this eyeliner thinking it was amazing because it's so hyped about, but have to say it's super overrated. Both my friend and I noticed it drying out fast after a short time of using it and while applying it, it would become dry and remove previously applied liner on the eye. Will most likely not repurchase.
