I've had these since the original launch when I purchased them, the price is $5-6 each. They were developed in collaboration with ItsMyRayeRaye, a beauty content creator, and are only available online.

Anastasia Cream Contour Kit | Fair | Review + Swatches

Image
There are many contour options from single shades, palettes, powder, cream, but rarely do they cater to fair skin tones. This cream contour palette is in the shade fair, retailing for $40. There are three highlight shades in the top row, and three contours in the lower row. Cruelty free Sleek packaging After watching With flash No flash
For a video demo: https://youtu.be/jXuu8vNIljs The consistency is creamy but on the drier sideCan mix with a facial oil if desiredStill blends out very easily on its ownI usually apply with my fingertips to desired areas and then blend out with a beauty blenderSoft Light is a more peachy pink "pale peach" toned concealer / highlightLustre is an iridescent clear shimmer "sheer porcelain"Not my favorite shade since it is not intense enough as a highlight and the product still needs to be set in placeFair is more yellow toned "pure sand" and is concealer toned on my skinFawn is the lightest cool contour "cafe latte"…

Lip Monthly June 2016 | Reviews + Swatches

Image
My next bag is already on the way, but product reviews are always better late than never! Instead of immediately reviewing the products, this month I decided to take more time to try everything out. The bags retail for $12.95 a month BUT with my code BUDGETMAKEUP you will get 55% off your first bag! I do make a small commission per coupon use, but my review is as honest as always. Here's an overview.  The contents total worth is $69.95 at retail price, and every product is full sized! Be a Bombshell Lip/ Cheek Stick ($16)  In the shade sweetness Blended, and unblended swatch The shade is a warm coral with a touch of golden glitter Jelly Pong Pong Lip Butter ($18.95) The formula is very smooth and has a "butter" like consistency. For being so smooth, it is hydrating but it also does not last all day. For all day wear, I suggest a lip liner under. Lip swatch Peony Cosmetics Highlighter ($22) Sheered out, and swatched The product is very subtle, but the tone makes it weara…

Hey everyone, today I have a set of reviews from the new British Rose collection and lip & cheek stains that were sent to me for consideration.
