Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

Dec/01/2015

I had used the Real Techniques dupe of this product for a while before I decided to purchase this to see if there really is a difference. Honestly, I don't see why I should pay $20 when the RT sponge is just as good for $6. The only big difference I noticed is that the beauty blender is a bit easier to clean in that my foundation gets cleaned out more quickly than from my RT sponge. But …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Dec/01/2015

This is probably the nicest piece of makeup I have ever purchased. And I'm thoroughly unimpressed. I only bought this because I had the VIB discount (full price it's $32). I had seen the Clinique Chubby Mascara in the Black Honey shade and was immediately drawn to it except for the fact that the brush on that one was super lame. The burgundy shade in the YSL mascara is essentially the …Read more

This is my new go-to mascara. I used to be a die-hard fan of the Urban Decay Perversion mascara but I hardly reach for it anymore. This mascara is crazy amazing. I can wear it alone without liner or shadow and have stunning eyes. I get amazing volume and length and find that it holds the curl in my lashes as well. The formula is nice and light and dries well to give me fluffy, soft lashes. Does …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Madly

So many YouTubers have recommended this shade that I just had to try it. And it is certainly worth the hype. I know generally the most popular/advertised NARS blush shade is Orgasm but Madly is just a beautiful shade of, what they call, seashell pink. In the pan and watched on a hand, it is the most unassuming color ever but on the cheeks it transforms. I find it pulls a dark peachy pink on my …Read more

I'm not a fan of concealer at all. It's either too thick and looks unnatural on me or the coverage isn't enough and isn't worth the effort. So i figured the solution to my dark circles might lie in an under-eye cream. And I've found that this actually works really well for me. The cream is really smooth and goes a long way in covering my under-eye areas. It's tinted …Read more

UGH! This stuff gives me life! Huge thanks to KathleenLights for mentioning this in a favorites video because I never would've found this otherwise.
This oil is sooooooo amazing. It has changed (for the better) the texture of my skin. My shoulders, chest, back and legs are so soft and smooth now and don't need lotion as often either. You use squeeze a small amount of this oil into …

Was browsing through the fragrances when a Sephora employee recommended this based on my preference for floral scents. I nearly died when I smelled this. This is HEAVENLY! It's everything I could ever want in a perfume. I picked up the purse spray as a quick fix since I still have a bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream to finish off but I have found my new signature scent. Wore this to work one …Read more

Contour - Marc Jacobs - Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder - Dream Filter 20

Aug/03/2015

Was searching for a contouring palette when I came across this. Im not super big on contouring so I wanted something simple (too many of the popular options had colors I would never use and it just felt like a waste of money to me). This comes with only two colors (a highlight and a shade) but the amount is generous. I was torn between the light toned and medium toned palettes and ended up going …Read more

Got a sample of two shades (Failbait and Bittersweet) in my May ipsy bag and LOVED them. Such great color payoff for a gloss and extremely long-lasting. I went out and bought the full-size ($22) in the shade Bittersweet which is a really gorgeous bright purple. I cannot get enough of this color. It's so fun but not too bright or intimidating. I think it's a great alternative to peaches …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Step 1 Skin Equalizer - Mattifying Primer

Jun/21/2015

Got a sample of this at Sephora because I had heard such amazing things about this set of primers. I have a really oily T-zone and drugstore primers just don't help.
While this worked really well, I have more complaints than praise for this product. The texture is like putting a thin layer of wax on your skin. And it dries quickly so I found it a little difficult to spread onto my skin …
