Tinted Moisturizer - COVERGIRL - Vitalist Go Glow Luminizing Lotion

Apr/18/2018

This product is a little bit confusing in the fact that it doesn't totally explain what it is. I would consider this to be a "highlighter" or a glowy lotion (similar to, but better than, Jergens) It looks really pretty light luminous gold lotion that looks great mixed in with foundation, dabbed on the cheekbones with a brush, or even on the decollete. I have tried it as a primer …Read more

THE NEW version of this is much better. It's a very flattering pink/mauve/rose lipstick that has a hint of glow but is basically matte. The older version of this was super shimmery and frosty allbeit a tasteful lighter mauve.

This has a yummy sweet smell that reminds me of candy, it may be a turn off for some but I like it.

It does not dry the lips out, but tingles …

I tried this and gave it away, I am simply not a fan.

The packaging is very pretty, and smells fresh but that is about as far as I can go when it comes to my appreciation towards this trio.

The contour is not cool, it is warm, very similar to ELF highlight/bronzer palette. But ELF is MUCH more pigmented and blendable. I find this chalky and difficult to blend.

The …

Bronzers - NYC New York Color - NYC Sunny Bronzing Face Powder

Gorgeous, matte subtle bronzer with a hint of warmth (but in no ways orange) Perfect for a fair to light skin tone. It is NOT a contour type of bronzer, but adds some healthy warmth to the face. I love matte bronzers as they are natural looking and add a healthy glow. If you are deeper I would not get this, instead obt for the color wheel :)

I have been using these for many years. I really like them, but they are simply not as moisturizing as they could be. However, they come in a variety of pretty shades and add a hint of shimmer and minty fresh taste to the lips. ALL of them are shimmery so if you don't like shimmer be aware.

Apricot is a to die for (as you may have guessed) apricot colour with gorgeous sheen. It is …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Mar/17/2018

I got the matte vivid liquid in nude flush, it is a gorgeous warm muted pink that brightens up my pale skin. It is one of my favorite pinks in my entire collection. This is not exactly "matte" which is OK with me. I don't treat this like a liquid lipstick that completely dries down because it simply doesn't, however it lasts for a reasonable amount of time without touch up and …Read more

I have searched high and low for a good liquid eyeliner for years.

i have a waterproof one by MAC that would literally last for a few days, but it has an EXTREMELY thick applicator, and I don't wear it often as it takes extreme measures to remove.

I also have one by Stila that I'm not a fan of because it doesn't last all that long.

This little gem …

With my fair skin, red hair and freckles it is next to impossible to find a blush that doesn't look too red (and bring out the redness in my skin) pinkier shades (such as the balm frat boy) are great over a full coverage foundation, but short of that, i can't wear them for an everyday natural look as they aren't as becoming. This shade on the other hand, is a godsend. The adorable …Read more
