Misc Beauty Tools -Revlon - Precision Lash Adhesive

i wear lashes everyday and this has been my only glue for years. it holds all day and comes off easily at night. it has a brush applicator and boy is it easy to use. it gets tacky quickly, and dries clear(i think they just came out with a black tinted one) like i said, easily removed, the only thing is, if youre not careful, the tube can get really messy. thats the reason i need to run and get some more. i highly recommend for girls who are new to falsies, very user friendly!
first off, the packaging looks so cute and chic...for a baby sunscreen? haha. this is my daily moisturizer. im a sunscreen nut, and spf60 seems just right for me. im VERY fair...i burn when i stand too close to the microwave, lol! back on topic, it goes on very smooth, creamy and thick so you know youre protected and moisturized. but never greasy. it soaks right it. im so glad i found this. its my new holy grail.
i got a free sample from a lady i work with, its a shade i usually gravitate to. so i bought the full size. and i hate it, its got CHUNKS of glitter in it, it feels grainy, goes on like...crisco. not luxurious at all. its about $14 dollars a tube and, thats alot for me. ill stick to elf :) the color is pretty, the glitter is just not for me.

its too dark,for me. even in light/medium. it comes off orangy, and its just a glorified tinted moisturizer..not to quote BeautyBroadcast. haha its overpriced, its watery and doesnt last all day. i guess i just dont see the point, and for $15 i want more than spf15.

its a bit expensive(upwards of $54 dollars, even WITH a coupon.... from cvs that is) but it works wonders, i can tell when i havent used it in a while. i usually take my makeup off, put this on my eyebrows and upper lash line, and top my lashes with some castor oil, about 3 nights a week. this helps my lashes grow out with a natural curl, and hold curl more easily. i suppose theres nothing else they could do with the packaging but it seems to me, if youre paying about $60 for 1oz of product, i want to have access to ALL of that 1oz, its hard to get the last drop out, but it does last FOREVER, even using it every night. ive repurchased, twice, and i plan to again. its worth it, even for the price. it works so well.
Primer/ Corrector -Palladio - Herbal Liquid Foundation Primer

i love this so much! its EXACTLY like smashbox, its a bit creamy-er actually. its a gel, and smooths out all the little bumps and creases, it keeps foundation on allllll day! the only thing is, it DOES have an expiration date, i believe its a pretty natural product(the whole line is...dont quote me on that though! haha) so if you dont use it in about 6 months, it doesnt work AS well. ive repurchased, and repurchased again, the only thing i dont like is the tube, its kind of hard to get the last bit out when youre almost done.
this is my go to foundation. its incredible how it matches my skin tone. im neutral so usually things look too warm or too yellow on me. the only thing i would change is the cap, i would much rather have a pump like the photo ready foundation. it seems wasteful and most of the foundation i go to pour out ends up in the cap. the foundation itself is creamy not liquidy at all. it blends really nicely. although you have to work fairly quickly. it blends in to the skin and feels like theres nothing there. and boy does it last...and last and last!
i used this during my pregnancy to prevent and get rid of stretch marks. and it worked like a charm. they not only dissapeared, they turned white almost instantaneously. the only problem i have with it is the cap, once you have the oil on your hands it is nearly impossible to screw it on and off. also, it says good for face. dont do it ladies, i tried it and it feels like you have saran wrap on your face. no bueno. but its great for shiny legs and shoulders. its all natural so go nuts with it! haha.
i have mine in light and i usually just use it under my eyes(although it has held up on my, far and few between, blemishes) i love it. its creamy and smooth. it doesnt pull at my skin or feel too greasy. the coverage is medium to full. and it blends incredibly. i have neutral skin so it sometimes looks a little yellow. but like i said, it blends to be flawless. the packaging looks so sleek and expensive. all the revlon cosmetics are packaged so nicely. anyone who hasnt tried this concealer, you need to!
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

after hearing everyone rave about this "perfect bronzer for paler skin tones" on youtube, i rushed out to find it. and it was a hunt. i finally found it, after looking at 8 drugstores and 3 walmarts,in the clearance bin at target for a dollar. ive had it for about 3 months. and when they say good for pale skin they mean it, i cant wear it in spring or summer. im too dark. and it seems to have an orange undertone. or it oxidizes quickly. its certainly not my favorite bronzer but for a fair(and i mean WHITE) skinned woman this would be fine. especially for a dollar.
this is the worst blush i have ever bought. and ive bought A LOT of blush. it has NO color...at all. its like a translucent powder. maybe its just me and my hatred for the "fit me" line. maybelline missed the mark on this one.
this is such a "grown up" blush. its my contouring blush. i use it on job interviews and special occasions. for normal day to day wear its too dark and old for me, but i still love it! its a warm muted pink, with sort of a berry undertone. its fantastic. it just glows. and no matter how heavy handed you are, its like you cant go overboard. theres no glitter or shimmery specks. i would recommend this to anyone! my all time favorite blush, hands down.
milani baked blushes in general are to die for, this particular shade on the other hand, missed the mark. its got...flecks of glitter! i dont know about you but im not going for the spice girl look. the color itself is VERY sheer. im not looking to be raggedy ann, but theres no color AT ALL! i have to scrub it on my face. cute packaging as always. i like all the other shades....its just this one, i wouldnt repurchase.
oh how i love this blush. but i have to use it sparingly. its ultra shiny. not glitter...or sparkle...but shine. like a highlighter and blush in one. all the hard candy baked blushes are like that. this one is a barbie pink. very...buildable. it looks scary in the package(and on your brush for that matter!) but its flattering. its not like...woah blush face.
I'm not sure if the brow fix kit comes in different colors all i have ever seen is light blonde. so that's the one that i have. i love it so much. i use it in conjunction with the milani brow pencil...i use the lighter shade all over and then the darker shade on a thin angled brush to define the bottom. its a creamy powder, not chalky at all and it stays forever! with that combo i mentioned, i can SLEEP in my brows and they are on the next morning. i would DEFINITELY recommend the brow fix kit.
