Concealers - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Concealer

5.0

5 months ago

This is my favorite drugstore concealer. It truly rivals the original product that it dupes--Nars Radiant Creamy concealer. Maybelline Fit Me concealer is wonderfully creamy and slightly more water-based which makes skin look like skin.

Just a tap of the applicator underneath your eye will be like a light turned on--pure radiance. As you tap some more to your taste and watch it …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Buffing Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Being the perfect blend of soft and firm, the buffing brush hugs the skin as the foundation glides on like butter, effortlessly, quickly and efficiently. The grip on the handle is built to last and seems created for your makeup-applying comfort. The finished product is so gorgeous and gives me my preferred look more than any other drugstore or high end brush I own. I reluctantly purchased it but …Read more

Eye Shadow - Makeup Revolution - Makeup Revolution Ionic 1

5.0

5 months ago

The quality that you get for the price is unbeatable. The same is true of much of Makeup Revolution's products which is why I get excited wherever I see a display of these products at Ulta, TJMaxx or Marshall's.

This palette in particular carries some of my favorite shimmer shades. The same is true of Iconic 2 and 3. It has the pop and pigmentation of a much more expensive …

5 months ago

MAC Natural Radiance-Yellow is my favorite primer. This decision has been a long time coming. Through much trial and error, and several primers in tow, the journey to find my favorite primer has been arduous, because, you see, I am not fond of many.

Natural Radiance stands out from the crowd. It makes my skin look beautiful, plain and simply. I love an emollient look to my skin through …

Misc Beauty Tools - AOA Studio - Paw Paw: Super Soft Wonder Blender -Teardrop

Huh?

I couldn't understand.

How?

How is this even real? How does this make my makeup so ridiculously beautiful? How does my skin look perfect? How is this blender working harder than the foundation itself to make this a masterpiece?

How does this work so well with any and every single foundation--melting, melding, blending the product into my skin so that …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Smudge Brush

5 months ago

For cleaning/sculpting eyebrows with concealer, the elf smudge brush has been perfect. I use it with my MAC studio finish concealer. The price can't be beat and I still haven't found an adequate dupe.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Wedge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I am ready to declare my love for Wedge on the mountaintop.

I have learned that my favorite eyeshadows on me are taupes, mid-tone browns, dark browns and greys. I also learned that I am in love with matte eyeshadow above all finishes. Also, MAC eyeshadows are the most superior eyeshadow formula for my tastes (high dimensionality, most stunning blend, pigmented, smooth and buttery with …

Coastal Scents hot pots truly beat out a lot of high end eyeshadow for me.

Hear me out.

The proliferation of eyeshadow palettes has offered much value, variety and quality in the realm of eye makeup. After using and wearing a range of eyeshadow from drugstore to high end, I have come to the conclusion that Coastal Scents hot pots are the best for the makeup beginner and …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Face & Body Liquid Make Up ] ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Why? Why did this product have to go?

When I first bought the original Make Up For Ever Face and Body foundation that is now discontinued (not the reformulation), I was still new to makeup but even then I knew quality when I could see it.

I could justify the price tag because I had chosen this foundation after trying several foundations on my hand at Sephora.

The …

Liquid - Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation

12 months ago

I blame Sephora.

Oh yes. I strolled innocently into Sephora during holiday sales hoping to pick up some goodies.

I knew nothing about this foundation but I saw a lady with a face of makeup perfection and I had to inquire. She, in a rush, told me "Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk" as she grabbed her shade quickly and headed to the growing line.

So, I …
