Bronzers - Too Faced - Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

Jun/30/2015

This is my current everyday bronzer! I've tried the original Chocolate Soleil and thought it was too dark and harsh, but this is perfect for my fair, cool toned skin.

To be honest, the pretty packaging drew me to this bronzer. I love the gold, sturdy compact, and I like that it comes with a mirror. It also smells SO GOOD! It's sweet and chocolate-y but not overpowering …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Tinted Brow Mascara

I have naturally thick, full brows, but want a gel to make them look clean and in place. This "brow mascara" was $7 at Ulta, which I think is a little pricey, but it does the job! I have the color "chocolate" but it's a little light on me.

The wand reminds me a lot of Gimme Brow, as it's short in length and slightly tapered at the end. It's the perfect …

This is my first Mac lipstick and I have to say, it's a little... meh.

The color is absolutely gorgeous! It's the perfect brown nude for my cool, fair coloring. I wouldn't call it a MLBB shade, but it's very flattering and perfect for winter or fall. I also love the vanilla scent!

The formula is where I'm not so crazy about this. It's very dry. I …

**3.5 rating** Honestly the cute macarons on the tube attracted me to this product. I love the look of glosses, but I hate the sticky feeling some have. I think it was about $5 at Target, so I decided to try it out.

I got the color Sweet Indulgence. It's a sheeny rose pink (and has a blueish hue) that tastes exactly like …

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow

May/10/2015

I always steer clear of cream shadows because they don't last on my oily lids. The shade "Gotta Glow" was apart of a value kit, so I ended up trying it for about $1.

I love this! It's really creamy and the yellow-y gold color is perfect for my fair skin tone. It's not metallic, but a subtle shimmer. This is perfect for when I'm too lazy to do eyeshadow- I …

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Baked Eyeshadow-ALL

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2015

This was my first baked eyeshadow. At $3 a pop, I had to try it!

The packaging is a little flimsy, but I don't use it for travel anyway. I have the color Toasted, a metallic copper. I love that it's not too red on me, as so many coppers are. Using the shadow dry (over Fergie primer) lasts me about 8 hours before starting to fade. I get minor creasing, but that's after 12+ …

I just started getting into eyeshadow, and after hearing the hype, I picked up this cute little trio at Target for $3.

These shadows are so soft and buttery!! I honestly couldn't believe they were from the drugstore! The quality is just about as good as my Too Faced Natural Eyes palette. Over my Fergie primer, these don't crease and last virtually all day, with minor fading (I …

Pressed Powders - Neutrogena - Shine Control Pressed Powder

Apr/27/2015

What a great powder! After trying the CoverGirl Oil Control Pressed Powder and hating it, I did my research and found this gem. It comes in one translucent color for all skin tones, and costs about $12 at Ulta.

I love that I can wear this by itself or over bb cream. I have VERY oily, clog-prone skin, but I trust Neutrogena and this kept the shine away and didn't break me out! I love …

Eyeliner - COVERGIRL - Perfect Blend Eye Pencil

Apr/25/2015

This is my go-to pencil. I have the black-brown one and it is very soft and natural looking. It is very creamy and easy to apply. It comes off easily with soap and water too!

The only thing I don't like is the smudger at the end. I don't use it too much. Also, the staying power isn't fantastic (I can get like 5-6 hours of wear before it fades).

This is my …

Blush - ModelCo - Blush Cheek Powder - Peach Bellini 02

I got this in my February ipsy bag. It was a pretty standard color, but VERY shimmery. It had huge chunks of glitter and emphasized my pores. The color is a very average peachy pink. There are definitely better blushes for better prices.
