Highlighters - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal

I cannot say enough good things about this product! This is the only cream highlighter I will use, because it gives a beautiful summery glow to my skin without looking heavy or glittery like most other cream/stick highlighters I've tried. My favorite way to use this is as a highlighter on my cheekbones and Cupid's bow, but I have also had a good experience with applying it in the inner …Read more

I know most people rave about this product, but I honestly couldn't care any less about it. I love using highlighter on my cheekbones and my Cupid's bow to brighten up my face, and while this product is beautiful in the package, I find it's not as fabulous during and after application. I don't like rubbing the stick directly on my face because I run the risk of messing up my …Read more

I LOVE THIS BRUSH. This is the only thing I will use to put on my liquid foundation (I even ditched my Clinique foundation brush and my Beauty Blender for this). To apply my foundation, I just dab on little dots all over my face with my fingers, then use this brush to "press" the foundation into my skin before buffing it out in circular motions. This technique gives me great …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Dewy Finish Setting Spray

I am a setting spray junkie, and I have oily skin that makes my makeup smear and smudge. I tried this because I was tired of making the trade-off of having oil-free skin but getting that matte "cake face" look. While this product does not prolong the wear of my foundation, it DOES make me look prettyyyy darn "dewy"-- almost TOO dewy. It really accentuates my highlighted areas …Read more

Let me just say I'm all about the makeup setting sprays. I have combo/oily acne-prone skin and prefer a full-coverage foundation, but there is nothing more IRRITATING than having your flawless face rub, sweat, and smear off during the day. That being said I have tried many setting sprays (skindinavia, nyx, UD), but this is by far my favorite. This spray feels a bit sticky or hairspray-esque …Read more

I'm not sure how I feel about this product. I bought it in the medium/deep shade to use as a cream contour. The color is a good contouring shade, but the product itself is hard to blend in a manner that gives a "natural/shadowy" look. I will continue to play with this product and attempt to make it work so I can use the rest, but I am disappointed.

Primer/ Corrector - BECCA - Mattifying Primer

This stuff freaks me out. When I rubbed it in it felt dry and sticky, I don't know how to explain it. The more I rubbed it in, the gross-er it got because it started to dry and pill up on my skin. Once I was able to get my foundation on, I didn't notice any mattifying or oil controlling properties. This was a waste of money and time.

This lipstick is everything. I wear it almost every day, and it's beautiful on my fair skin. It doesn't last hours and hours, but I don't mind reapplying it every once in a while because it's moisturizing and smells amazing. And for $1, it CANNOT be beat.

Apr/03/2015

This is an alright product, but it doesn't work in the way I had hoped it would. This product eliminates the powdery look of my makeup and creates a beautiful luminous finish on my combo/oily skin, but it doesn't seem to prolong the wear of my makeup, which is the reason I originally purchased it. Skindinavia.com is usually having some sort of promotion that includes free shipping and …Read more
