Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

Absolutely love this product. I have been searching for the perfect foundation. To say I am picky is an understatement. I am extremely picky. I need skin like, skin beautifying, skin perfecting, pore perfecting, luminous finish without falling off....see my dilemma? So to say La Mer, GA, TF, Fenty, ELDW, Lancome, Dior etc. etc. I can only say if you are like me and want your skin to look hydrated, smooth, not foundation like, then this is your jam. I only discovered this b/c of the new released concealer. I never paid any attention to this baby. I am a bit of a foundation snob you could say. In any case, this is flawless. I am beyond happy. And I know, can it be that good? Like in a sea of foundations? Yes it's that good. Try it. BTW, I am combo (more on dry side these days), mature, skin needs ALL the help it can possibly get!

Mascara -BeneFit Cosmetics -BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

Thought I would look up my new current favorite mascara on MUA, and am surprised to see the lack of love for this product! I've found BeneFit's recent mascara offerings to be kind of meh, they're okay but not memorable enough to buy again. But BADgal BANG! really delivers and is easy to use. Yes, it is wet, but the brush and bristles are delicate enough that each lash gets coated. It doesn't clump when applied, therefore it does not stay wet for long. Easy to apply, good definition, and good staying power. I for one am so over the mascaras with the fibers and giant brushes, give me good old-fashioned wet mascara with a tiny brush. AFAIC, if in the US I could still buy Helena Rubinstein Long Lash Mascara (the wet one with the metal wand that was so popular in the 60s), I would SO use it. Interestingly enough, the HR product is rated here with 4.4 lippies... I'd recommend that any fan of HR Long Lash try BADgal BANG!

Brows -BeneFit Cosmetics -24 hour brow setter

I really like the wand it’s precise and coats every hair, it’s easy to use and you really can’t go wrong, but I feel like because it’s clear, when it sets- you can see the gel on your brows, with tinted gels you don’t. For that reason I’m not gonna use this anymore.


Lip Gloss -Laura Mercier -Lip Glace

I think this lip gloss formula is phenomenal and a lot better than even newer products that are hitting the market. The shades are lovely, the gloss itself feels nice on the lips and is not sticky, and the packaging is very nice. It is not very long-lasting, but that isn't something I expect from a lip gloss anyway. If I had to pick one lip gloss formula to use for the rest of my life, it would without a doubt be this one.

Lip Gloss -wet n wild -Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm

foto

I imagine all shades of this look exactly the same--clear--so it does not matter which one I used. It was just a colorless balm in spite of the fact that the bullet has color to it. It didn't really do anything for the condition of my lips one way or another, so I consider it to be pretty worthless. I also don't like the packaging, as the lid does not seem very secure at all. I think I paid less than $2 for this on sale at CVS, so I am not really out that much, but this product does nothing at all.

Lip Gloss -Marc Jacobs -Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer

foto

After hearing a fair amount of positive hype around these lipglosses, I scored a pretty generous deluxe sample from Sephora with BI points recently in the shade Sugar Sugar. The gloss feels nice on the lips, but oh my god the color is atrocious and unflattering. Even though it is not sticky, it still gets those stringy swamp-monster threads that thick lip glosses get when you press your lips together. The packaging is nice, and I like the mintiness, but I really do not think that these glosses are for me.


Lipstick -L'Oreal -Colour Riche Lipstick

The Colour Riche formula has been around for a long time, and I find it to last pretty well and be comfortable. The shade range is pretty nice, especially if you want basic kind of colors. Of course, there is the smell, which may be the most divisive point for this product; I personally love it, but I know some people straight-up hate it. I have several shades, and I will continue to use them. I do find the packaging to be very dated, but otherwise this is a solid lineup from the drugstore that has some gems that should not be overlooked, particularly Volcanic, Fairest Nude, Blazing Lava, and Everbloom.

Lip Liners -Annabelle -Lipliner

A really good lipliner that competes with other that are twice the price - I bought the NUDE because I was trying to save money, it was there, and I didn't expect much.
VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED - a perfect nude colour for fair skin, dark hair (not too brown, not to coral - a true pink/beige blend) - which is a skin/hair combo not always easy to shop for.
Lasts long and goes on pretty well - did have to add some lip balm but amazed how it stayed. Won't find better at this price!


Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -Ombré Blush

I have this in the bright apricot shade called Feel the Heat. At first glance it looks neon and overwhelming. While it's highly pigmented, all you need to do is slightly tap your brush into the powder before tapping it into the apples of your cheeks. Gives me a radiant flush that lasted me throughout sitting outside for hours in 100 degree weather. The Feel the Heat shade suits my medium tan skin perfectly... definitely a staple for brown skin!!!


Lipstick -Stila -Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Beso

foto

This is a lovely red shade, and it does last pretty well, but I find the formula to be too thick for comfortable wear as well as being kinda drying. I also don't really love the packaging, as it can kind of allow the liquid to seep out. When these were first launched there weren't many really truly great liquid matte lipsticks on the market, but now everyone makes one. Today, there are much better formulas that feel better on the lips but still wear for extended periods of time.
