Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover
MakeupMoment 5/21/2012 3:40:00 AM
This is a nice eye makeup remover. It gets the job done without irritating my eye area.
I am glad I got my hands on this blush. It's a beauty, for sure. Modern Mandarin is a lovely peach/coral color that applies like a dream. The texture of this blush is so smooth and the pigmentation leaves nothing to be desired. It's simply amazing. With this product, a little bit definitely goes a long way. I applied way too much product one time and I had clown cheeks, LOL! Overall, this is a beautiful blush and I hope MAC features it again, someday!
Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Stippling Brush
MakeupMoment 5/21/2012 3:33:00 AM
This stippling brush is phenomenal! I use it to apply my liquid foundation, and it does a beautiful job at blending in the foundation onto my skin, and creating an airbrushed finish, every time. Ever since I purchased it a few weeks ago, I haven't put it down. Its become a must-have staple in my makeup regime. I can't rave about it enough!
It usually takes me quite a long time to use up a whole bottle of perfume but, this one I just couldn't get enough of. Up until the last spritz, it was my daily staple. I loved the fruity scent, and this fragrance worked for either day or night. The only con I can think of when it comes to marine groove is that the scent didn't last too long on me. But that's a common thing with me and other fragrances. I can never find one that can last all day.
This top coat is amazing! It is composed of a clear base, that contains holographic, multi-dimensional flakes. Depending on the base color you use, the flakes take on a whole different personality. For instance, when I apply Shine Of The Times over a black nail polish, the flakes have an orange/green color to them. And when I apply Shine Of The Times on top of a white nail polish, the flakes are more pastel-like. It's so interesting how one product can have all of these personalities. I love this top coat and I can't recommend this product, enough!
I absolutely love Bare Minerals. I have been using this foundation for a little over 5 years now, and it has become my HG mineral foundation. I am an NC25, I have some yellow undertones to my skin and I found that the shade golden medium suits me just fine. I have oily, sensitive, dry, and acne-prone skin, and this foundation has never broken me out. During the day, my t-zone area does get a tad oily. But it is nothing that a little powder can't fix. When it comes to coverage, I would say it varies. Its completely up to you. If you are a person that doesn't have much to cover, but still want an even look to your skin, apply a light dusting of it. But if you have acne scarring, blemishes, and dark spots, pre-conceal with a firm concealer brush then, apply the foundation with a kabuki brush or any face brush that is dense, and start swirling it onto your skin in circular motions. I find that the denser the brush is, the better the coverage will be. I love using this foundation in the summertime because it just feels so lightweight-literally, its as if I have nothing on my face. That is how light it feels. I can't rave about this foundation enough. I know that this product doesn't work for everyone, so I am just adding in my two cents. But I say, its worth a try. Try getting a sample first to test it, before committing to buying it.
I LOVE Truth or Dare! I have been using it non-stop all winter. I love how the two colors compliment each other so well. Both colors contain shimmers, but they are really not very apparent once they are applied to the cheeks. Truth or Dare leaves such a pretty, healthy looking, soft pink glow to my cheeks. With Truth or Dare, you will never look overdone.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
MakeupMoment 1/15/2012 11:23:00 AM
This is such a fabulous highlighter that has won my heart. I can proudly say that Soft and Gentle is one of my HG highlighters. Its just perfect. I love to apply it on the bridge of my nose, the top of my cheeks, and my chin. Believe me when I say, a little bit goes a long way.
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Lengths Mascara (2011)
MakeupMoment 1/15/2012 11:17:00 AM
I really like this mascara. I find that it lengthens and separates my lashes nicely. I can get away with one coat, or I could go for two coats to really pump up the length factor. I typically don't have much luck with Maybelline mascaras, but this one really impressed me.
I love my MAC 217 brush! It does a superb job at blending out my crease colors. The best part is that with the 217, it does not take much effort to blend out the colors. It practically does all the work for you. I also love using this brush to apply color all over my lid area as well. If I had to suggest one must-have eye brush from MAC, the 217 would definitely be the one to go with.
I have been using Fit Me foundation for almost a year now, and it is one of my favorite drugstore foundations. I am actually on my second bottle of this and that says a lot, seeing as I hardly re-purchase foundation because I always want to try something new. I am an NC25 in MAC, so in the Fit Me, I found that shade 210 suits me just fine. The formula is very easy to work with. Blends easily into my skin, and it leaves me with a healthy looking, dewy glow to my skin. There are not shimmers in this foundation, but it will leave you with a dewy look. The coverage is light-medium. I have a few acne-scars on my skin, and I find that it does not cover them completely, so concealer is definitely a must if you want more coverage. I have really sensitive, acne prone skin, and I am very happy that I have not experienced any breakouts from using this foundation. I have a pretty oily t-zone as well, and I find that I do get oily around my forehead and nose area, around the 3-4 hour mark. But it doesn't bother me much because really, it happens with all of my foundations. It's nothing that a little translucent setting powder can't fix. I like the look of the bottle, but I would have preferred a pump be included, just to make it more hygienic. But overall, I really like this foundation, and I will definitely keep repurchasing. It also doesn't hurt that this foundation is super affordable, either.
I LOVE Spark-tacular! The glitters in this top coat is just mesmerizing. I have been applying this top coat over every nail color that I have been sporting and I literally can't stop staring at my nails. It's that gorgeous. I love how with just one coat, you can get a nice glitter saturation all over the nail. And it dries super fast too, which is great. Of course as with most glitter nail colors, removal is a pain. But, I think Spark-tacular! is worth it, so I overlook it. :)
