Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer | Review + Swatches | 01 Bavarian Cream

Stop what you're doing, and at least read the into to this review...Today I'm reviewing a new love of mine: The Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer. This baby is only $14, and *spoiler* worth the hype. Mentioned in my Concealer Collection video.  .14 oz  Applicator  Swatch of Bavarian Cream (lightest shade, yellow toned) Comparison swatches here  Unedited no makeup face Full face, 10 hours after application (no touch ups)
First, sorry no right after application picture (the shots were a little blurry, and didn't want to use them)Claims to be ideal for under eye areaIt is great, not 100% full coverage thoughI also used it instead of foundation along my t-zoneActually my skin tone, would be brightening for almost anyone elseWears all day, doesn't separate, crease, or get patchy (on me)I have heard not ideal for dry skinIf you have dry skin, use a primer or moisturizer underWith this "unique" applicator not a lot of product comes outAlmost have to dot the …

Mac Fleshpot Lipstick | Review + Swatches

Mac lipsticks are a classic, and for me this one is a must have. Mac has raised the prices of their lipsticks overtime, and currently cost $17. They have a variety of finishes, and this one is a satin finish.  "Pale muted pinky- beige" according to mac Pulls more peach on me Can be worn alone, mixed to lighten, or in the center of lips to highlightI love this lipstick even alone, but I know not everyone would like thisScreenshot from my latest video about some of my favorite lipsticksNot as dry as a mac matte, but still enough so that it wears a long timeCan be built up or worn less intense Overall, Not every person nor every skintone can pull this color off, but personally I like it. On me, it's slightly a "concealer lips" color, but that shade is the look some desire. The formula is also very nice, if I wore this more I would try to find a dupe. There may be some listed online in-case the price does not seem reasonable to you (I just hope Mac doesn't rais…

Real Techniques Silicone Eyeliner Brush Review | BEST EYELINER BRUSH

Okay so the title of this post may seem a bit dramatic, but this makes even people who are terrible at winged liner (myself included) look like a pro. Best part, this brush is only ~$5! 
When they say this is easy to clean--they mean itLiner nearly flakes off brush, does not stain tipI tried it for the first time on camera, and didn't even touch up off cameraUsed again in another tutorial a week later, liner looked still on fleekMimics the tip of a felt tip eyeliner Overall, Obviously I really like this brush. Liner works well with most if not all gel liners, you could even use it with a liquid liner you didn't like the tip too.

Sephora Favorites Superstars | Mini reviews, swatches, and true value!

To go along with my video uploading today, I'm posting my review on this new Sephora Favorites set. This is the Superstars edition and it retails for $75. This is especially an amazing gift, or gift to yourself to buy during the Vib sale.  List of products included and amounts 
 Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water (deluxe size, $16)- This is a slightly glorified water, reminds me most of mac fix+. It has a light scent, but the spray can be intense if held too close to the face. Does prime the skin by prepping, but nothing that another primer could do--I can see it being nice for oily skin due to not overly hydrating.Makeup Forever Step 1 Equalizer (sample size, $5.76 value)- This is a true hydrating base, it is a actual primer that has a primer feeling (not silicone). Does not fill in pores, or blur skin, but does create an even canvas to work on.Beauty Blender (original size, $20)- This is just the original beauty blender, once you try the real thing--nothing compares. It is light…

The tone of this is a my lips but better, perfect nude. Th…
