Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - In Control

So I went to Mac to try on/buy Soar. I'd been waiting to buy this lipliner for pretty much months. The MUA told me that they recently came out with a shade in their "Pro Longwear Lip Pencil" that was identical to Soar - In Control. I compared them to be sure, but she was correct. I don't own a lipliner from the longwear line, but apparently it's a longer lasting, creamier …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED3 Eyeshadow Palette

Dec/25/2015

It took me a long time to really make my mind up on this palette. I’ve had it for about a year so I think I’ve finally formed a full opinion. TL;DR: mediocre, although there are a few pretty great shades in here.

I have pretty high expectations for palettes, especially if I’m going to spend over $50 on it. Plus I’m just an eyeshadow snob. I don’t think buying this particular palette is …

Liquid - CHANEL - Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Fluid Foundation

This foundation is hilariously overpriced. I wanted to find a foundation that was full coverage and long lasting so I was referred to this one by two different Chanel reps. I had heard good things about it from various youtube makeup artists, etc. I’ve broke it down in a list..

- It has no coverage whatsoever. The amount of foundation I had to use to cover up the slightest scars is …

HOLY GRAIL X ONE THOUSAND.
This is the best foundation out there. If you want something that’s FULL, opaque, lasts the entire day and night, provides the perfect matte base for everything else (contour, blush, highlighter, etc), then this is it. Perfect for oily skin like mine, doesn't stop the oil but keeps it at bay. I was on the hunt for a new foundation, have tried Dior, Chanel …

Lip Liners - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner for Lips - Tawny

5.0

Jun/05/2015

Carli referred me to this! This matches my lip color almost exactly. I'm a NW35 with brown-pigmented lips. On me, this is a muted brownish pink. I can wear this lip liner with most shades except bright ones. The formula is amazing, it lasts forever, is very creamy, and applies like a dream. I can't believe how cheap it is. I hope Jordana releases more lip liner colors.

Shampoo - Ouidad - Curl Recovery Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil

Shampoo is sulfate-free FYI.
If you have curly hair, do yourself a favor and buy this. This is probably the best shampoo I have ever used. It's very moisturizing, gentle, and yet cleans my hair. I have tried doing the sulfate free thing for over a year now and the last shampoo I was using wasn't doing much for my hair and gave it a weird stringy feel. This feels like a real …

Moisturizers - Philosophy - Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel Cream

This is a great moisturizer, my go-to in the summer. It's very lightweight and is perfect to wear under makeup. My skin is super sensitive and it didn't break me out (a rarity). However, I would only recommend this to those who have oily skin because I imagine the formula would be drying if you don't. It can be a little drying on me and my skin is extremely oily!

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Captive

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2015

Captive is everything I wanted Craving to be. FYI the shades look totally different on me. Captive is darker, more alluring. I'm around NW35 so it's not exactly "vampy" on me but it's probably the darkest color that I can rock on the daily in my collection (but I'm afraid of dark colors so that's not saying much). It definitely looked much darker in the Mac …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Core Collection

May/26/2015

Nothing to say here that hasn't already been said. Everyone needs to add this to their makeup collection! I had tons of brushes and didn't think these would add much to my routine. But I use each one every day I wear makeup.

This is how I use them:
1. Pointed Foundation: I did not try using this for foundation but instead I use it for highlighting certain parts (using …

This is a very interesting shade of purple. It looks much darker on me compared to the swatches online. It's a good formula and all...long lasting, smooth application. But whats curious is its exact hue, such a unique color. It's dark and stormy. For people who are into "stranger" looking colors, this is a justified purchase, & not sure why but this shade reminds me of …Read more
