-One pump is generally enough for both eyes, or anywhere you need it on the face
-Great shade range
-Beautiful, satin, skin-line finish
-Looks great when used over/under foundation, brightens under eye area, and …

Crème - MAC Cosmetics - Pro LongWear Compact Foundation SPF 20

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

This product is described as a sheer-medium coverage cream-to-powder foundation with a 10 hour wear, that is transfer resistant.

I found this to be good for what it is. For someone who typically prefers a fuller coverage, with a more dewy or satin finish, I decided to give this a try.

I was actually surprised by the coverage -- with two thin layers, I was actually able to …

Mascara - Younique - 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Set

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

So as with most people, I'm sure we all saw the hundreds of Instagram picture of girls with giant tarantula lashes and thought "I NEED THAT!" Well, I ordered this and the concept is simple enough: One coat of your favorite mascara, followed by one coat of the Transplanting Gel, followed by one coat of fibers, and then sealed again with the Transplanting Gel. Now, this only gives …Read more

Skincare - Face - MAC Cosmetics - Prep and Prime Fix+

5.0

Jul/06/2014

If I had to make a list of my top 5 makeup products ever, this would definitely be included!

I know Fix+ has been criticized for not prolonging the wear of your makeup, but that IS NOT ITS PURPOSE!

That being said, Fix+ can be used for a variety of different things, including:
-Spritzing your face before/during makeup application to hydrate your face, and so that your …

Eye Shadow - Stila - Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow with Primer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

Since this product's debut, it has received quite the mixed bag of opinions, so here's mine:

The idea: A highly metallic, cream-fusion eyeshadow, that when mixed with a drop of the provided primer, creates a beautiful foiled finish on the eye.

CONS:
-Takes a bit of time to figure out what works best for you. I have been told by various sources to apply with …

Cleansers - Boscia - Clear Complexion Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

My whole life I have had virtually perfect skin, until about a year ago. All of a sudden, my cheeks were Breakout Central, and no matter what products I used, (makeup, skincare, etc.) nothing seemed to help. Every time I ran out of a cleanser, I would try something new, trying to find something that would help with the acne. Now, I don't know if it's coincidence or this product truly …Read more

Brows - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

I purchased this product in the color "30" which is a dark, neutral (leaning warm) brown. I like this because a little bit goes a very long way, and the little squeeze tube is very convenient. I apply this with an angled brush, and my brows always look super sculpted when I use this. That being said, if you like the trendy, sculpted brow look, then this is the product for you. If not …Read more

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Refined Golden

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2014

After completely going through my MAC's Pro Longwear Bronzer "Nude on Board", I picked this one up and decided to give it a try. I typically wear an NC15/NC20, and while this is a pretty dark, pigmented bronzer, I still find it wearable on my skin tone.

I would describe the color as a deep, warm bronze with a fine gold shimmer running through it -- it is not a metallic …

Brows - LORAC - Take A Brow in Dark Brown

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2013

This is without a doubt the best brow product I have ever used. I have been using this since before Christmas, at least 4-5 times a week, and I have not hit pan on anything but the wax. I use the shade "Dark Brown" and I was a little iffy about it at first, because the darker of the two shades is verrryyy dark, almost black, which can look a little bit harsh against lighter skin tones …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Moisture SPF 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2013

I've been trying to break my full coverage, mattified ways, so I was on the hunt for something that would not dry to a matte finish (without powder.) This is DEFINITELY a dewy, high-shine foundation, so if you don't like that look, then DO NOT buy this foundation. I understand that this foundation is not for everyone because it is so dewy that to some people, it would look oily. I would …Read more
