Makeup Brushes -Unlisted Brand - Posh Powder Brush
aznmnkygrl808 4/6/2013 6:32:00 AM
My old love used to be elf studio powder brush. I still love that brush, but only when I want full coverage because it really packs on the powder onto my skin so it can sometimes look cakey. This brush is amazing. It's so soft and fluffy. I swirl the brush into my rimmel stay matte powder and start off with my tzone and then the rest of the face. I picked this up from bed bath and beyond. Def would repurchase!
I love trying new lip balms but I always go back to Chapstick. It keeps my lips moisturized without feeling too greasy/sticky. Other lip balms I've tried have dried out my lips but not this one. Strawberry is my favorite flavor out of the whole line. Def would repurchase! :)
For reference: nc25-30, warm, oily skin This color is gorgeous!!! Warm orange-peachy shade with a creme finish. Glides on smooth and feels very moisturizing. This color reminds me of revlon's lip butter in tutti frutti, but not as orange. I love wearing this lipstick with nyx's lip pencil in "ever", which is a similar shade as well. Def would repurchase! :)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
aznmnkygrl808 4/5/2013 6:19:00 PM
For reference: nc27-30, warm, oily skin Not going to go into details with the shades because there's prob a bunch of reviews on them. But I love this palette!!! Wet n wild eyeshadows are Amazing; Super pigmented, buttery consistency and awesome colors. All the shades in this palette are shimmery. My favorite one would have to be the 2nd shade in the first column, which is a gorgeous peachy champagne color. Only thing with wet n wild eyeshadows is that they're super fragile and will shatter if you drop them, so be careful! Def would repurchase! ;)
For reference: nc27-30, warm, oily skin Holy crap this blush is ridiculously pigmented. I like to apply with ecotools blush brush, which is really big and soft. Perfect for giving a light wash over cheeks. Color is a dark rosy hot pink. I barely touched my brush to the product ANd I already picked up too much color. I always tap off on back of my hand just incase. Packaging is cheap but the product inside is what counts. Wet n wild powder products are fragile so be careful!!! Def would repurchase!
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil
aznmnkygrl808 3/28/2013 5:54:00 AM
I love this eyeliner!! I own the black, blue and purple one. These liners are ridiculously creamy yet they last so long on the waterline. I use the black one to tightline and the colored ones if I want a pop of color in my eye makeup. Love that it's an automatic pencil; im lazy like that. Little product comes out at a time when you twist the pencil. Def would repurchase!
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily Bought this because of the whole Kim k hype. I wouldn't repurchase this product! I used this to set my undereye concealer (bobbi brown corrector, maybelline fit me concealer). I set using my damp beauty blender and I only use little product. The results still made my undereyes look really dry and Cakey! I love my MUFE's hd powder but I wanted to try something new. I guess I'm going back to my old love.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
aznmnkygrl808 3/28/2013 5:43:00 AM
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily I used to hate this powder!! I thought it made my skin super oily but I now realized it was because of the foundation I was using back then. I love this powder as much as I love my maybelline dream matte powder, which is my HG matte pressed powder. I picked this up in the shade "sandstorm". After applying my foundation, I apply this powder using my elf studio powder brush or my posh powder brush. This powder leaves my skin matte throughout the day without having to blot/touch up often. I don't mind the scent; it has a rosy/floral/baby powder scent?? I Frickin hate the packaging. The twist up lid is dumb and it would've been nice if there was a mirror to make touch ups on the go easier. Def would repurchase!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
aznmnkygrl808 3/28/2013 5:37:00 AM
For reference: nc27-30, warm yellow undertones, oily Originally I picked up "nude beige" but found that the shade was too light and too pink for my skintone. I then picked up "medium beige" which I think would be perfect for nc30 yellow girls. It's a little bit too dark for me but I set my foundation with a lighter powder. Love the packaging; yay for pumps!! Formula is a bit thick. This foundation has a semi matte finish! I find that this could look really Cakey if you use too much so I usually mix in my garnier oil free bb cream to make it thinner. Lasts well for my skin throughout the day. Doesn't oxidize. Because this product has SPF in it, it is not photo friendly!! I don't find myself reaching for this all the time so I wouldn't repurchase. Update: 5/1/13 The weather in Hawaii has been ridiculously hot... Scorching muggy heat which would make anyone automatically sweat once they step outside. This foundation does not work well with this weather. My makeup was literally DRIPPING down my face. Luckily I saw my face before I met up with my Friends. I use the same primers/powder/setting spray with revlon colorstay in this type of weather and that held up soooooo much better Compared to this foundation. Dropping rating from a 3 to 2.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - TimeWise Age fighting Moisturizer C/O
aznmnkygrl808 3/26/2013 6:19:00 AM
For reference, I have oily/combo skin. I purchased this product off of eBay. Although I have oily skin, I still want my face to feel moisturizer but not greasy. At first, This product does hydrate your skin and It sets completely matte pretty fast. Works well under makeup. The more I used this product, it made my skin feel so dry and tight. I would probably only use it during the summer. Other than that, I wouldn't repurchase.
Moisturizers -Olay - Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid - Oil Free
aznmnkygrl808 3/26/2013 6:15:00 AM
I am a big fan of the active hydrating cream but I wanted to try something a bit lighter. For reference, I do have oily skin. Has the exact same smell as the cream; baby powder fragrance. I love using this lotion during the day. It's light yet it moisturizes well. Doesn't leave my face greasy plus I haven't broken out from this product. Works well under my makeup. Def would repurchase this instead of the cream!
Foundations -Boots - No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 10:13:00 PM
For reference: nc 25-30, warm yellow undertones, combo/oily skin Picked this up from target for around $13. What caught my attention was that there were testers and this foundation said "matte", which I'm a sucker for because of my oily skin. Crappy thing is that there are limited shades, around 5? I purchased the 2nd darkest shade "deeply beige", which is perfect for my skintone!! It's yellow with no pink undertones. I love the packaging; narrow bottle with a pump! No nasty scent. I apply this with my damp beauty blender and set my tzone with maybelline dream matte powder. You hAve to blend quick because this product sets fast to a powdered finish. Stayed put without oxidizing. This is the type of foundation that looks better throughout the day. It's as if the formula melts in your skin. Def would repurchase, just wished that there were more shades incase I get lighter/darker. Edit: (3/24/13) On days where my skin is actually normal/combo, I like to mix my garnier oil free bb cream with this foundation for a semi matte finish. I got so many compliments while wearing this combo!! This foundation truly does have oil control properties. Def would repurchase!
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - EYLURE Naturalites "Super Full 080" False Lashes
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 8:47:00 PM
This is a UK brand. I've seen this brand In a couple of UK youtuber videos and was debating whether or not to order them online. I found this brand at target!!! I paid $8 for these lashes. They're like demi wispies, but not as full as the ardell ones. The hairs are thinner and more spaced out compared to the ardell ones. When applied, lashes looked a bit too natural so I added one coat of mascara. Amazing!! These lashes are perfect for everyday wear. With the added mascara coat, the lashes went from blah to naturally pretty. Box came with 2 pairs of lashes plus a little vial of lash glue. The glue is pretty good. Applicator is a wand stick. Definitely would repurchase these lashes!
Polishes -China Glaze - Avant Garden Collection 2013 "Tart-y For The Party"
aznmnkygrl808 3/19/2013 8:40:00 PM
I picked up this polish and "passion for petals" from the avant garden collection. This shade is gorgeous!!! It's bold and bright. It's a medium pastel lilac color with a creme formula. Because it has a creme finish, consistency was a bit streaky and thick so this isn't a polish that you can rush with. I applied Sally hansen's base coat, 2 coats of this and 2 coats of seche vite top coat. Polish was pretty shiny before I applied my top coat. This is a unique shade because other pastel lilac shades I've come across have been more on the milky light purple shade whereas this one is darker. Def would repurchase!
I received this as a 100 point product from sephora. I love the wand; Plastic bristles with a spiked ball at the tip, which is perfect for getting those lashes by the inner corners. Plus the wand grabs onto every lash, helping to separate and lengthen. Formula is light and easy to remove. I did not experience any smudging. I personally love this mascara for my lower lashes. For my mascara routine, I first apply shiseido's nourishing mascara base, one coat of maybelline WP full n' soft, one coat of benefit they're real, and then another coat of full n' soft. I only use this mascara for my bottom lashes. Definitely would purchase the regular size once I'm done with the small tube! :)
