Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast

5.0

Apr/09/2014

This is my favorite under eye highlighter to use on top of concealer, or when Im tan (and my circles are less noticeable) by itself. Its a light peach shade. Similar to 3 in YSL Touche Éclat. Instead of clicking up it twist, and unlike TE, this isn't sheer and glowly this has more pigment to it. Which is good for me because it does a better job of cancelling out my dark circles. It wears …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Setting Brush

5.0

Apr/06/2014

This brush...is amazing! One of the best in my kit/collection. I love that its synthetic which means if I choose to use it with cream products, like cheek highlighter, it doesn't absorbed all the product like a natural bristle brush would. It fits perfect under the eye/on the cheekbone. I use this to apply concealer/highlighter and to set my concealer. Flawless application that looks very …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Pure Zen

Apr/05/2014

I was so happy when MAC expanded on the Creamsheen formula! Its one of my favorite finishes. Great pigment, super creamy lipstick with good staying power. Pure Zen is one of my favorites of the new expansion, and just one of my favorite nudes in general. Pure Zen is the perfect peachy pink nude that doesn't wash me out, or make my lips disappear. I hate the concealer nude look, I want a …Read more

Cleansers - LUSH - Let the Good Times Roll Face & Body Cleanser

2.0

Apr/05/2014

I really LOVE Lush, the face mask and the bubble bars and bath bombs rock my world! But this just did NOT work me for, sadly. LTGTR is a creamy, awesome smelling face wash (smell like caramel corn!) Literally when I tried it, I was tempted to eat it! The problem was in the texture. It has little piece of sharp, broken up corn kernels in it.....and it literally CUT my face open! And I wasn't …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Acure Organics - The Essentials Moroccan Argan Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2014

First let me state, pure, organic argan oil is going to smell weird. Nutty almost. This is a good sign. It means its not cut with a bunch of other BS. That is the reason this smells. Argan actually contains a nut like pit inside, and that is where the oil is extracted from. Anyways, onto the product. lol Its a very nice thick consistency, not at all runny, in a beautiful glass bottle with a …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Mascara - Endlessly Black

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2014

This is, and has been, my go to mascara for two years now...since its release. First the brush is VERY tiny. Which I love! it allows me to get every single lash, and absolutely no clumping, EVER! My lashes are insanely long but very thin..so they clump very easily. With Extended Play that has never been an issue. Another bonus is this mascara coats your lashes in little "tubes" so no …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Zoom lash

Apr/04/2014

I worked for MAC for five years, and I never went out of my way to suggest/sell/try this mascara on anyone. It just did nothing for me. First, I feel the formula is really, really wet. That is something I don't like in a mascara. It tends to clump your lashes together into one big, spidery mess. The brush is also nothing special. Just your basic brush you can find on some cheap mascara at …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - All Fired Up

5.0

Apr/04/2014

First, let me say this whole line of Retro Mattes are AMAZING my favorite formula ever. The wear is amazing...not only for longevity, but they wear away so perfect and even, not patchiness. Now onto the color. Its a pinky red, very bright. The color its actual closet to is NARS Luxemborg, which is one of my favorite NARS colors. Luxemborg is more glossy though, All Fired Up completely matte...of …Read more

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Beam Liquid Highlighter

Apr/04/2014

I used to work for Benefit many, many, MANY moons ago....and this product was the first highlighter I ever used. So, its very nostalgic for me! lol I probably still have this somewhere actually. Not that I am looking for it. This overall is a okay highlighter for my NC30 skin tone. I don't see this working on someone much darker. As a matter of fact, I remember putting this on people and it …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED3 Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2014

So, it took me awhile to write this review. I usually use a product at least 10 times before I decide if I really like it or not....I feel like that's giving it a fair chance. When I first used Naked 3 I really wasn't in love with it....a few little tweaks and I feel like it works a lot better for me now. First though, lets start with the colors. This palette like the other two …Read more
