*Before you decide to buy this please do a shade match with a couple of shades samples for a day!
The color I was matched with, 420, was perfect with a smooth matte finish. The next day (which was July below the Mason-Dixon line=humid) I applied it at 5AM, when I got home by 2:30PM, it looked like Jello chocolate pudding was all over my face! My skin gets darker in summer but not that deep! …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

Aug/17/2018

Got this foundation in the color Coconut 355 at Rite Aid a couple of days ago and it's quite mattifying! If you have combo-oily skin, I highly recommend. It covered up my flaws beautifully w/o a problem. The only main issue I had was the finish is a lil red on my skin. In this humid summer weather, I do have to blot after approx. 4-5 hours on my combination skin. For those w/dry skin who …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Ben Nye - Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer

May/05/2017

Ordered this product off Amazon after a makeup tutorial I saw on YouTube. I believe it's mainly used for theater, costumed characters etc. Only ordered 1oz just to see the hype. Did full face- primer, foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick. I sprayed about 2-3 mists 8 inches away across my face. Mist is VERY minty so it'll tingle or sting depending on your skin (if it gets on your …Read more

Sep/29/2016

Got it from Ulta, comes in pink tube. Maybelline Falsies Flared was my go to mascara but this is much better IMO. The bristle is a little firmer and curves. This product is great at curling up your lashes especially if you don't have an eyelash curler on hand!

Pros: added volume, lifts lashes & elongates them, price.
Cons: cone shape of the wand handle & finding the …

Seeing liquid matte lip color is hot right now & being on a tight budget, I saw these Hard Candy lippies in Walmart. Their color selections are small but bold. I got the plum color Wisteria. Here's a breakdown:

Pros: Price ($6+tax), metallic lippie container that comes w/built in mirror, bold reds, pinks & nudes.

Cons: Limited color selections, not fully smudge …

Oh Baby is a medium brown/golden shimmery Lipglass by MAC. It glides on quite light w/hints of brown & mostly gold glitter shimmer. Can apply alone for calm effect & can be applied on top of brown/golden lipsticks.
Pros: Lightweight, smooth, vanilla esque smell.
Cons: Mostly gliterry, color really isn't visible.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Flat Out Fabulous

Aug/01/2015

Flat out Fabulous is a berry, bold retro-matte finish lippie. You can play this color up or down w/various lip liners and/or glosses to your taste. When I prefer to tone the color down, I use a plum lip liner or if I want a vibrant finish, I'll use MAC Magenta lip liner. Would recommend dabbing lips w/balm before application.

Pros: versatile color, stays put most of the …

Aug/01/2015

I've become a mascara junkie this year, trying ones from MAC, Benefit, Maybelline, Too Faced & Sephora brands. I saw this for a low price at Walmart & decided to try it out. The bristles remind me of Benefit's They're Real but way smaller.

Pros: Price, tube, color, adds a bit of volume
Cons: Small bristles, dries out quick

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Love Alpha - Natural Fibre Mascara

Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2015

There's a love/hate relationship w/this mascara. Ordered a double set from Amazon Prime for about $13-14. The gel is kinda thick, I have to wipe off the excess on the side of the tube. Only do 1 eye at a time FYI. Then apply the fibers and the gel again to lock in the fibers. Half of time, this fiber mascara set doesn't give any problems, the other half is a different story...the fibers …Read more

Feb/02/2015

Saw Better than Sex mascara on HSN and was wowed by the demonstrations on the models. Their lashes looked dark, voluminous & long! The next day I went to Ulta to buy it. It was $24 and some change which is a lot in my wallet for mascara (typically wear various Maybelline mascaras). The pink metallic mascara container is really nice though. I applied the mascara along with curling my lashes …Read more
