Contour - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I bought this in St. Lucia. It's very nice to have a blush and a bronzer in the same compact, it cuts out the necessity of hunting out complementary colors!

Both of them do have glitter, but I haven't noticed any big glitter chunks, and once they're blended the glitter isn't very noticeable. It's much more like a sheen. Speaking of blending, it blends very …

Pressed Powders - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Prime and Stay Finishing Powder

May/22/2017

I bought this at the recommendation of a friend. Going through my reviews and seeing how many of my 2 star ones are about recommendations from friends, I'm starting to reconsider taking recommendations!

I was told that this would perform better than the translucent powder that I was using, which is E.L.F. Studio High Definition Powder. I was happy with the performance of the …

Highlighters - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Illuminating Palette

The only highlighter in this palette that works on my fair skin is the top left one. In order to save space, I depotted it and put it into a compact on its own. It's a decent, shimmery highlighter that's not too showy as to make me look oily, but not so subtle to not show up at all.

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Cream Eyeliner - All Colors

E.L.F. is truly one of my favorite brands. I appreciate that they offer inexpensive makeup and brushes that is usually quite good, and I also appreciate that it's cruelty free.

Unfortunately, every now and then they have a dud. And this one is a dud.

It's neither as black or as waterproof as the eyeliner I was hoping that this one would replace. It smudges at the …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Lip Lingerie

This was my first foray into matte liquid lipsticks, and it may have been my last if I hadn't taken a chance on Colorpop's products. The color is nice (I have this in Bedtime Flirt) and it applies matte.

Unfortunately, it never feels dry. It always seems to feel a bit sticky. I've changed up how I apply it-- i.e: applying a lighter coat with my finger instead of the …

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Signature Real Complete BB Cream SPF 25 PA++

May/22/2017

This has been my go-to foundation for years. I've dabbled a bit with other BB Creams, like Skin79, but I always come back to this foundation in shade 13. It's so lovely to find a fair shade that isn't overly yellow tone as Mac's foundations tend to go.

It's light and doesn't feel heavy on my face. It applies wonderfully with a beauty blender. It's …

Brows - RIMMEL - Professional Eyebrow Pencil (All Shades)

1.0

May/22/2017

I grabbed this in the shade Black Brown, as that describes my eyebrow color accurately. Unfortunately, this color is more like dark brown. It's also very, very warm. It was disappointing to see how warm it looks on me.

It does apply very smooth, and it doesn't smudge badly unless you really rub at it. I think it would be excellent for someone who was warm toned, but it's …

I really don't like the shiny gold packaging Milani has been putting things into. I think it looks cheap. It'd be so much nicer looking if it were just black plastic. But, that's just me! Ultimately, we're all concerned with the contents of the packaging!

The blush is nicely presented in its rose shape. I tried 5 other blush shades concurrently with this one in my …

Blush - wet n wild - ColorIcon Blusher - Rose Champagne

May/22/2017

When I was suggested this color, I thought my friends had lost their minds. Looking at it in the pan, and even seeing it swatched online, I thought there was absolutely no way it would look nice on me.

I grabbed it anyway, expecting to return it shortly after. It's $2, so what's the harm? Even swatched on my inner arm, I had reservations. Imagine my surprise when I applied …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Ombré blush

May/22/2017

I found this blush by being petty, so I knew it was the blush for me.

That's just a joke! But I'm serious when I say I've been struggling to find a good mauve blush that's in my price range. Mauve Me is just what I've been searching for.

The versatility of ombre blushes is something I like, especially with these two shades. I wish the lighter shade …
