Foundations - Marc Jacobs - Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

May/17/2016

Bought mine in 33 Beige. For ref i'm a MAC NC 35. The MJ shade is a little too yellow on me at the moment (winter skin) so I use the brightening drops from The Body Shop to slightly adjust and I get the perfect shade for my current skin tone!

This foundation is pretty full coverage (a little goes a long way) However it can be sheered with some buffing which is what I do. I then …

This review is for the concealer pen in Banana. Where do i begin oh yeah I hate it!!
Maybe I bought a dud... it's extremely thick and doesn't blend onto the skin.. even upon initial application from the pen! it skids -_- so I tried dabbing some on my finger then dabbing underneath my eyes and it's just as thick and unmanageable and just gives a heavy look. Like cakey. It takes …

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Bronzer

First things first, the obvious visually pleasing look of this bronzer. The waves are so intriguing, that alone made me buy it! the shade is nice. Not orangey at all. In either shade. the scent is reminiscent of sun tan lotion or vacation, think Pina coladas. I'm ok with that. This Bronzer was formulated just right in my opinion. It's not powdery, it's smooth. It blends beautifully …Read more

Palettes - LORAC - Nude Necessities Eyeshadow Palette

Apr/07/2016

I love the thought of this palette. Earth tones that everyone would love in a great mirrored style package. BUT this palette lacks pigmentation! it's good for quick on the go no fuss makeup days or for someone that's not too fond of lots of color. For ref I'm an NC35 in MAC, and the darkest shade is still very light on my lids. Again not a completely horrible palette but not a …Read more

Eyeliner - LORAC - Front of the Line PRO - Black

Apr/07/2016

This is a great liner! I love the size of the brush and I think the thin consistency of the black liner is a perfect match. It's thin but nothing seeps out which is perfect! Also this liner does NOT dry out quickly. I've had the same pen foreverrrrr. If you feel the liner's not distributing enough product you just put the cap back on and give it a good shake and it's back to …Read more

I like that you get to try 5 products and that they're in a nice sleek compact. However I will say that although a little goes a long way, the pans are a little smaller than I'd like. It's hard to get a fan brush to pick up product throughout the brush! I seem to only get product in the center of the brush and when I swipe back and forth I make a mess in the palette because the …Read more

Contour - wet n wild - Coloricon Contouring Palette

I bought Dulce de leche and Caramel toffee. I like the contour shade from the dulce de leche duo because it's more of a gray brown and the highlight powder from the Caramel toffee because it's a yellow and I have a warm undertone so this shade compliments me best. Both palettes are nicely pigmented and blend onto the skin nicely. Only thing I wish is that they weren't so powdery …Read more

I wanted to love this product because I do appreciate a lash primer. I thought the black tint to this one was genius and Estee Lauder made it so I could I not like it?
Quick description of my lashes, they are actually pretty long and full on their own but I really the the volume primer gives. Almost like a a false lash effect.
I tried the primer 3 different days with 3 different …

Feb/23/2015

I was so excited to try this product not realizing it came with another tube (this one with white fibers)... I decided to try it anyway because well why not!? I love Better than Sex Mascara.. This should better no? WELL... The mascara itself is actually really nice.. Those silly little white fibers.. I can do without! they should have just put the fibers inside the mascara if they wanted to …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Feb/23/2015

This foundation can be worn "sheer" but is definitely more so on the medium side in my opinion. Just 1 & 1/2 pumps max 2 and I have a nice medium coverage canvas. My issues are, it's not as "Glowy" as I expected. It's more of a demi matte because it dries pretty quick and settles into fines quite quickly as well so setting with powder right away is ideal. Most …Read more
