Cover Fx Total Cover Cream Foundation: Review

Image
I walked into sephora telling myself that I didn't need more foundation...then a lady who worked in sephora insisted on color matching me. When she did she told me that I should try Cover Fx for my sensitive, acne prone, skin. She claimed it would even help my skin, and not irritate it at all.  I got the cream formula Claims: Clinically tested Without many bad ingrediants Full coverage Foundation and concealer in one Broad spectrum SPF 30 All day Radiant finish Revitalizes appearance of skin Protects with age defying benefits As you can see there are a lot of claims... It comes in a basic little compact saying the brand name on the front. Only here does it say that you may have a serious reaction to it . I am in the shade N10 Very pricey at $42 Less product than a standard foundation only .35 oz Cream product Weird almost plastic/ plant smell I have had this for about a month, and am almost out :( Does not last "all day", To make it

Tarte Matte Waterproof Bronzer: Park Ave Princess

It retails for $30 but I picked it up for $14 during one of the Ulta daily deals a while back.  This is the matte waterproof bronzer.  Amazonian clay vitamin E vitamin C mineral pigments cruelty free NO: parabens mineral oil phthalates sodium lauryl sulfate  synthetic fragrence It DOES contain: mica silicons (dimethicone, silica, etc.) claims to be waterproof Has a little mirror. Neutral tone, good for contouring too many silicones for my sensitive skin less orange then NYC sunny bronzer Very pigmented

Lord & Berry "Scarlett" Lip Crayon

Image
I wore this today and I can already tell you this is a positive review! I think these retail for around $10 maybe, but I have no idea since I got it in my hautelook set.  It is a matte lip crayon, and the packaging is a matte finish as well.  This is in the shade "Scarlett".  It is a true, bright red.  Wore all day long without touch ups Starts off normal but dries matte Very creamy- no tugging Not drying to the lips, they almost moisturize No idea where these are sold (If you know comment please!) Overally AMAZING! I love this more than my revlon matte balm It stays perfect without breaking up/ cracking on the lips Does NOT get on teeth

Hautelook Lip Beauty Bag

My hautelook order just arrived! It took from the first of the month until today to get here, but it was worth the wait! It was originally $24 but I got it for $10 once they were trying to sell out.    It came with a Laura Geller coupon code, and the lip bag with lipsticks and kisses is adorable!  There is a Mirenesse duo of a "lip bomb" and a "Glossy Kiss" in the shade 2.   A Laura Geller Marbled lipstick in "Sugared Maple"  Lord & Berry Lip Crayon in "Scarlett"  Nyx retractable lip liner in "Fruit Punch" LORAC lip gloss in "Ruby Lustre"  LA FRESH Travel-lite makeup remover wipe Crown Brush Lip brush swoon Lip gloss grabber  Bottom/Left to Top/Right:  Laura Geller "Sugared Maple" lipstick; Layered and then one sweep LORAC "Ruby Lustre" lipgloss Lord & Berry ""Scarlett" lip crayon Nyx "Fruit Punch" lip liner Mirenesse "2 Gloss

Pop beauty "Pouty Pop Crayon Set": Review

Image
For my birthday one of my friends got me this lovely set. I have seen this brand at my local rite aid but I do not know where else Pop beauty is sold. And I totally thought I published this review, but I guess I didn't.   Cute flowery packaging containing 6 "Pouty Pop Crayons".  The colors are : Barely Bitten, Apricot Adore, Coral Crush, Petal Passion,  Rose Romance, and Fuchsia Flirt  They range from hot pink to nude to coral  There is a good amount of product, pretty standard Top to bottom: Fuchsia Flirt-  wearable bright pink Rose Romance- rosy brown nude. The lip color version of Tarte Exposed blush Petal Passion- very very sheer light pink, so sheer it is practically clear Coral Crush-  vibrant buildable coral Apricot Adore- orange- peach similar to Coral Crush Barely Bitten-tan/ brown nude Which do I recommend: Fuchsia Flirt, Rose Romance, and Apricot Adore (worn this the most) I don't recommend: Petal Passion (too sheer) ,

Physicians Formula Shimer Strip in "Vegas Strip": Review, Swatch, and Demo

Image
This is my FIRST Physicians Formula product. They are priced (in my opinion) to high for the drugstore, but  40% off at rite aid( last week or the week before)  made me want to at least try something.  This is one of the "shimmer Strips",  it was so hard to choose one since they all looked so pretty.  It claims to be a Bronzer, Blush, and Eye shadow in one.  It has a clear acrylic clear casing. I got the shade "Vegas Strip" It has a whole .3 oz And it is made in Italy The lighter shades are not as pigmented, and the second to last is the most pigmented.  All swirled together Can you see the slight highlight the top colors give?  I prefer matte bronzer and blush but this is a stunning highlight. A little sheer for an eyeshadow, but it does work  Can be used as an overall bronzer for glow Too bronze for a blush (In my opinion) Super glow-y Packaging feels sturdy Great affordable (when on sale) highlighter 

Lip Crayon Collection: Revlon, Pop Beauty, Jordana, Etc.

Image
The next "collection" post in this mini series. All of my lip crayons. Overview... REVLON: All of my revlon ones.  I posted a separate review on each one last week each day.   POP BEAUTY: All of my pop beauty ones, they came in a set (from a friend)  and it came with a free gift of an additional bright pink one.  (Full review on this set is also posted now) RANDOM: Jordana-I like them but do not love them. Especially the color selection is not my favorite. Covergirl- Too waxy for my liking Neutrogena- Has glitter? You don't notice until it is worn off, but it smells amazing! Elf-Not long lasting, the ones without glitter are nice. Minty smell and taste. CLEANOUT: Don't need the extra pop crayon.  Neutrogena has too much glitter. The elf, is getting old and used up...and it doesn't last long enough

Revlon Romantic Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain : Review

Image
Last one, completing revlon balm stain week, is another red. Who loves red lipstick, but hates the maintenance?  This is a red, long wearing, comfortable lip color. This is a true red, a classic "Romantic" color Minty scent I can wear this all day without needing to touch up Not drying at all Dries down to a natural finish Bold but buildable color Makes teeth look whiter

L'oreal Collection Privee by Julianne Lipstick: Review + Swatches

Image
This limited edition lipstick has been out for a while now. It is supposed to be a nude lipstick from L'oreals Collection Privee. This is Julianne's nude. There was a lighter color like a baby pink, and the darker colors were more mauve.  It has matte black packaging, that does get dirty quickly.  It does have L'Oreal engraved into the bullet, and it does have a stunning gold tube.  Sheer swatch Layered swatch Lip swatch Buildable color L'oreal scent Wearable light pink almost nude Coordinates well with multiple colors Cute packaging, better than normal L'oreal packaging Perfect shade for me
