ColourPop Eyeliner

Tags

, , , , ,

Hello Everyone!

I know I have been on a ColourPop rant lately but I cannot get over how great their products are! I recently received one of their creme gel liners in one of my Ipsy boxes and I am in love. I received the color Get Paid which retails for… only $5! They have so many colors, which could definitely be dupes for other expensive eyeliners, and they are so versatile. The website states that you are able to blend this product to achieve a smoky look or use it across your water line.

Pros:

  • Eyeliner glides on effortlessly making the application process extremely easy
  • Highly pigmented so there is no need to apply multiple times
  • Very long wear
  • Once product dries there is no smudging
  • No sharpener needed
  • Many different colors to choose from
  • Great price!

Cons:

  • Since ColourPop is so popular, shipping takes a little longer. Expect to receive your product about 1-2 weeks after purchase date

Would I purchase again? Yes

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes

Like I mentioned, I received this product in my Ipsy box! If you are interested in receiving products like this and much more awesome goodies for only $10 a month then click the link below 🙂

I want to join Ipsy!

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Tags

, , , , ,

Hello There,

Not too long ago I wrote a review about Kylie Jenner’s Liquid Lip Kit and I have heard a lot of buzz about ColourPop having dupes of the product for much cheaper, so I had to try it out! I ordered two colors, Shimmy and Seesaw, which are both neutral pink colors that I thought would be nice for the summer. For $6 a piece, the price and quality cannot be beat!

Featured from left to right: Seesaw (Ultra Matte), Shimmy (Ultra Matte)

Pros:

  • Application is very easy
    • ColourPop recommends using a lip liner for a cleaner application, but I do not use one and have not had a problem
  • Color lasts all day!
    • The color has lasted through eating and drinking
  • The product dries quickly to a super matte texture
  • Does not dry out lips
    • Before applying any matte product I like to apply chapstick while I do the rest of my makeup so my lips have a little moisture
  • Color is very pigmented
    • I only use one coat of this product
  • Very affordable!
  • Wide variety of colors
  • Does not test on animals

Cons:

  • Some people do not like matte lipsticks because they bring out the lines in the lips so if you are one of those people, I am not sure that you will like this product

Would I purchase again? Yes

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes

, , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing my love for Urban Decay’s De-Slick Mattifying Powder! I bought this product for $32 and figured it would be perfect to deal with my oily skin. Halfway through my day I always find myself blotting my face to get rid of the excess oily that not only feels uncomfortable but, looks unpleasant as well. I’m happy to say that this product lives up to its five-star review on Urban Decay’s website!

Pros:

  • Compact and portable so I can always keep in my purse
  • A little product goes a long way
    • I used the applicator that comes along with the product and pat a little on my oily spots and watch them disappear like magic!
  • I can use this product with or without makeup
    • If I am going anywhere after a workout I use this product to take away the shine
  • Product goes on sheer and does not feel heavy
  • Vegan

Cons:

  • Very pricey

Would I purchase again? Yes

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes, especially if they deal with oily skin

Do you have any experience with this product? If so, let me know!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Tags

, , , , ,

Hello Lovlies,

I have finally found a foundation that works for me! During a recent drugstore trip I decided to pick up Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation for around $6 and I am so happy I did. I struggle with oily skin and most foundations only increase my problem after wearing them throughout the day. This is the first foundation that I have been able to wear all day without the feeling of greasy and uncomfortable skin after a couple hours of wear.

Pros:

  • Maybelline offers a wide variety of colors and tones so I was able to find one that fit my skin perfectly
  • Blends easily and not blotchy at all
  • Very lightweight
    • I wear this foundation all day long and it feels like there is nothing on my skin
  • Builds very easily
    • I only apply one even coat to hide any redness or blemishes but more can be used if needed
  • Makes a great base
    • I apply bronzer, blush, and much more on top of this foundation and it does not smear or come off
  • Hides pores
  • Great price for amount and quality!

Cons:

  • If you have dry skin, this product may not work for you

Would I purchase again? Yes

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes, unless they have dry skin

I was happy that I found this inexpensive drugstore foundation that worked better for me than the expensive cosmetic brands. What are some of your drugstore go to products?!

Jergens Natural Glow Firming Daily Moisterizer

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Hello Beauty Lovers!

Now that the warm weather is upon us, it’s time to get that sun-kissed look without damaging our skin! I love a good self tanner as much as anyone else, but sometimes I’m too lazy to take the time to apply and I certainly don’t look forward to dealing with the smell. Desperate to find any easier way to upkeep my tan, I bought Jergens Natural Glow Firming Daily Moisterizer for around $8 from my local Walmart. I was a little hesitant to try this product since I have read reviews where people have experienced an orange color or the product didn’t work at all. Putting fear aside, I threw the product in my cart and I’m so happy I did.

Pros:

  • Product is very easy to apply. I apply daily after my shower at night time
  • Lotion does not make you sticky or uncomfortable like some self tanners do
  • There is a smell, but it is NOT the strong smell of a self tanner. I would describe the smell as beachy
  • The color comes out subtle but noticeable. After using for 2-3 continuous days, the tan starts to build and becomes darker. I like this because it allows people to control how tan they would like to be!
  • The price is great for the quantity and quality of the product

Cons:

  • I bought the firming lotion and have not noticed any significant change

Would I purchase this product again? Yes

Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes

Remember that different self tanners work for different people so get out there and find what works for you! Also remember to protect your skin with SPF and stay out of tanning beds 🙂

True Match Lumi Cushion

, , , , ,

Hello Beauties,

I’m sure most of you can agree with me when I say finding the perfect foundation is a difficult task to accomplish! Don’t get me wrong, I love my Bare Minerals Powder Foundation but, I want a liquid foundation that will work for me as well. While browsing the makeup aisles at Walmart I came across L’Oreal’s True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. At a price of $14 I was a little hesitant to try since I have read reviews that said the product did not last long. I went ahead and got I anyways and unfortunately, the reviews were correct.

Pros:

  • The color matched my skin perfectly and was easy to blend
  • Multiple layers could be used with this product to achieve maximum coverage
  • The sponge made it easy to use with my foundation brush and beauty blender
  • I liked that the foundation included an application pad and a mirror. This made it easy for during the day touch ups

Cons:

  • I have a combination of oily and dry skin and after wearing this product for a couple hours, I found that my face was very oily
  • The application pad did not really apply the product well. I ended up using my own brush and beauty blender
  • After two weeks the product was very dry and barely any product was transferring to my brush
  • The price is high for how long the product lasts

Would I purchase again? No

Would I recommend to a friend? No

Unfortunately this is one foundation that just did not work for me. Do you have any experience with this product!?

Maybelline Brow Drama Pro Palette

Story Time!

A few months ago my mom came up with the idea to get a waxing machine so we would be able to wax our eyebrows ourselves instead of paying $10+ every few weeks. Every time I have waxed my moms eyebrows, they have come out flawless so I thought I could do the same for mine, but clearly I was mistaken. Waxing your own eyebrows is harder than it seems and unfortunately I found this out the hard way. While applying the wax, some got on the end of my eyebrow and before you know it I was left with a bald patch! Before this point I have never filled in my eyebrows because I was afraid of them looking overdone and painted on, but unless I was going to walk around missing a piece of my eyebrow, I had to give it a try.

The next day I went to the drugstore and I chose to go with Maybelline’s Brow Drama Pro Palette due to the instructions and necessary brushes that were included. As soon as I got into my car I opened the package and applied while hoping for the best. Little did I know this product was going to be my absolute favorite!

This product includes a wax to help hair stay in place, a powder, a highlight, an application brush, and a combing brush. I have medium brown eyebrows and chose to go with the color Deep Brown, which matches perfectly! The wax and powder is so easy to apply and it is perfect for beginners like myself! I got this product for around $11 at my local drugstore.

Pros:

  • Easy to apply
  • Wide variety of natural colors
  • Compact and portable
  • Great price

Cons:

  • Can’t think of one!

Would I purchase again? Yes

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes
