Foundations - GIVENCHY - Teint Couture Everwear Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

My holy grail foundation is EL DW in Rattan. I got Givenchy Everwear foundation in Color Y205. The yellow understone is a better match for my skintone than EL DW. I was color matched at Neiman Marcus and provided a 10 day sample.

First, the fragrance is a bit strong. Why do high end brands put perfume into their foundation? I have sensitive skin and I could feel this causing my …

Mascara - GIVENCHY - Volume Disturbia Mascara

2.0

2 months ago

I am always looking for a good mascara to replace my YSL. Loreal Lash Paradise waterproof is my new holy grail since it is comparable to YSL, just YSL wand is smaller. I was hopeful to try this Givenchy mascara.

The biggest CON is the fragrance. Why would Givenchy add fragrance to this mascara? It smells good, but really on a mascara?

I have very stubborn lashes. They go …

Highlighters - BH Cosmetics - Spotlight Highlight - 6 Color Palette

I got this on sale at Kohl's which included a highlight brush, this palette, and a bag. The bag was cheaply made, but cute as a gift to a little girl. The brush is excellent quality and I use to apply this highlighter. The palette is nice with a mirror for application on the go. I have used the colors Allure and Vivid as some highlight for the cheek and eyeshadows. Beautiful colors. …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - PUR Cosmetics - Miracle Mist Hydrate & Set

I really enjoy the Pur Cosmetics makeup removing oil and I decided to give this setting spray a try. Normally setting sprays burn my face. Smashbox primer water is the first, this is the two setting spray that agrees with my skin. A little goes a long way.

First let me start by saying this sprayer is fast and strong. You really need to extend your arm, spray, and then quickly move …

My favorite oil for removing makeup is Burt's Bees. That stuff is amazing. I was running out of the product and was going to repurchase when I saw this Pur oil on sale at Kohl's for $9.60. I grabbed it up to try. This is a much thicker consistency than Burt's Bees, but for the price it is an excellent deal. I ordered two more bottles online

Since this is a thick …

My holy grail foundation is EL DW, but I am always looking to replace it. I love the fact there are 100 shades to choose from, which I believe everyone might be able to find their ideal shade. Pur Cosmetics website has a foundation finder tool, based on my EL DW color Rattan, MG3 was recommended. I have a hard time with foundation because I have sensitive skin. Ulta online and in store does …Read more

I received a free sample from Sephora with a purchase. I immediately fell in love with this moisturizer. I could feel it plumping up my cheeks and gave me a radiance when I woke up. I like the free sample so much that I purchased a full size directly from Perricone MD website during a 40% sale. I use this as part of my day and night routine. As I am aging my skin is going from very oily to …Read more

Sunscreen - COOLA - Mineral Face SPF 30 - Matte Tint

Shake the tube since this does separate. I love the texture of this SPF. This glides on effortlessly. This can be used as a primer, but there is not enough moisture for me to replace my moisturizer. This feels so lightweight on the skin. Applying SPF can be a chore, but not with Coola.

The only reason I will not purchase this is because it breaks down my foundation. My holy grail …

I love the Peach Perfect Matte setting powder. Too faced provided this free sample foundation with online purchase. I had a bad reaction with the Peach Perfect foundation burning my skin. This Dew You foundation also burns my face. Peach Perfect I had to wipe the foundation off, but Dew You I was able to wear for the day. Light Beige is the perfect shade for me.

This foundation …

Foundations - CYO Cosmetics - Long Lasting Foundation Lifeproof

There is no much hype for this foundation on youtube and well I finally found this at my local Walgreens. You can order this online and have it shipped to your local Walgreens which is nice, but it is constantly out of stock online. The CYO section of my Walgreens is tiny and well picked through, but at least Walgreens.com told me the shade was available in the store. Before purchasing open …Read more
