Primer/ Corrector -Guerlain - Meteorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer

This is quite nice. I have a few samples of this product. The first few times I used it, I was not impressed. The first time I used it under CC cream, the second time under foundation. It made zero difference. The third time, I tried a different method, I mixed this primer with my CC Cream (Bourjois 1,2,3 cc cream) on my palm, and then applied the mixture on my face. Then I knew what the fuss was about. It makes my skin look so glowy and pretty...I usually get a few dry patches, none with this. I also notice that my make-up looked good through out the day even though it was a warm day. Really like it!
I don't really use primer though, so I'm curious if something cheaper could give me the same result. Not sure if I will purchase or not. I'll use up my samples and test a few drugstore primers before I decide if this one is worth splurging on.


Lipstick -ColourPop - Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

I bought frick n frack and the formula surprised me dry to matte, feels comfortable on the lips, kinda transfers but the color stays all day, so I won't mind with it definitely buy another one


Sunscreen -La Roche-Posay - Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral Ultra Fluid Sunscreen

Agree with Carybears review below. I really like this and use it in the summer when I tend to be darker. I am normally NC 30-35, olive skin, yellow undertones. This shade works on my skin, but I don't think it would work on those with lighter complexions. I am prone to hives and milia and this does not irritate. I like its fluid consistency. When I want a sunscreen without color, I use RP in the big squeeze tube.


Liquid -Maybelline - Dream Cushion

on 4/24/2017 11:46:00 PM

I got this cushion in shade 30 - Warm Nude which is a perfect color match for me who has light-medium skin with a yellow undertone.

Pros
- Natural finish, looks like skin!
- Travel friendly
- Good coverage. It was able to cover my acne scars and pores.
- Cushion applicator is easy to use

Cons
- Not long wearing (4-5 hours)
- Foundation dries up after 2-3 months due to the packaging
- Weird baby powder scent


Lipstick -NYX - Lip Lingerie

foto

It says the overall rating is 4, but it's more like a 4.5. I have the Nyx lingerie in the grayish pink/dusty mauve color, Embellishment. One dip and swipe on each side of my lips and it is fully opaque. The formula is somewhat whipped, like when you swipe birthday cake frosting on your lips and it actually sets on your lips. Although not completely transfer proof, there is very, very minimal transfer, and the formulation is very comfortable on my lips. Just make sure your lips are not dry initially before application. The reason why this did not get 5 stars is because I wish there was a sunlit vanilla scent like those Nyx soft matte vanilla cake batter scent. Packaging is the standard. For the price though as well as the decent formula, it's no big deal at all. Looking forward to trying other shades.


Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Take it Away Makeup Remover Lotion

foto

I got this in a GWP recently. It does take off most of my makeup. I don't see it doing any better than a good makeup wipe. I might even be tempted into buying the full size, if It weren't for the smell. I'm not really that sensitive to smells, but this smell is horrible. It reminds me of a very strong household cleaner.


BB Cream -MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42

foto

I have this in the shade 23, it's a bit too pink on my yellow-toned medium skin but I can still say it's not that bad at all. I would say that this has a natural coverage, and that's what I love about this because I don't like detectable makeup base on me plus it's not cakey! This is also oily skin friendly, it has a dewy effect which makes the skin looks healthy, but it still doesn't make my skin look like a disco ball by the end of the day unlike some bb creams and foundations. I love that this doesn't break me out as well which is a bonus. I took flashback photos and I don't see any white cast even if it says it has spf in it! Would definitely purchase again, the only thing I don't like about this is it's not that affordable, but this has 50 mL in it and for how it works I think it's reasonable!


Powder -Kat Von D - Lock-It Powder Foundation

I found it didn't look smooth. It was cakey and powdery looking on. Not as great of coverage as I would have liked either


Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - tweezers

Hands down the best tweezers I have EVER tried. These make it so easy to pluck even the tiniest baby hair. I once misplaced them and going back to a regular tweezer made me appreciate my Tweezerman even more! I've had mine for over a year and they're still as sharp and the day I first bought them. Definitely worth the investment!


Nails -Wet 'n' Wild - Putting on Airs

on 4/24/2017 11:12:00 PM

Wow!! This is such a gorgeous sky blue color with a hint of baby blue and teal mixed in. I never buy Wet and Wild products but was at Rite Aid and was looking for a pretty blue. Wow!!! Out of my 300 color color collection of polish.... mainly OPI, Essie and Chanel this was a stunner! I received 6 compliments today alone on this one color that I paid .68 cents for. Amazing color application a bit streaky but no worse than my ten dollar polishes. I then applied my SV top coat at it was simply stunning!!! Very pretty for spring/summer. I went to my nearest Rite Aid and bought 5 more bottles. 1 back up for me and the rest for my coworkers who had wanted it. If you are looking for a pretty baby blue with hints of a pretty teal cream this is it!!! Not sure of the other W and W colors but this is for sure a keeper!!!! Very impressed!!!!
