FOUNDATIONS & CONCEALERS:
◊ Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation "150 Classic Ivory" & "255 Natural Buff"
I have really been liking this foundation, especially with the Beauty Blender. I actually bought two because one was way too light for me so I bought one a bit darker to mix together to get my actual skin tone color. I like wearing this foundation but not during those hot days because it will definitely not stay on that long, especially for those with oily skin.
◊ The Original Beauty Blender
I love this and now definitely see what all the hype is all about! If you haven't tried this, definitely go out and get one (or two) for yourself. I have tried dupes in the past and the original is definitely where its all at. Its so soft and applies foundation on like a dream. I love using this with my Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation and with my Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse foundation as well. I just wish that it didn't stain so quickly with foundation.
◊ Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer "Light"
This is unfortunately my last back-up. I wish that Maybelline didn't discontinue this concealer because I love it for my under eye areas. It just brightens up my under ere area and makes me look more awake on those tired days where I just want to go back to sleep.
◊ Maybelline ExpertWear Blush "20 Pinch O' Pink
I love blushes and if its a pink blush, I am going to love it more. This is actually one of my favorite pink shades and actually my second repurchase of this blush.
◊ Philosophy The Color Of Grace "Beauty Is Art"
This is a light pink blush. Its actually blush with a highlighter or luminizer surrounding the pink blush but what I like to do is just use my brush and swirl it all around the compact. It just gives my cheeks this perfect pink shade and I always get compliments whenever I wear this blush.
◊ NYC Blushable Creme Stick "645U Big Apple Blush"
I don't really use creme blushes that often but if I had to chose only one creme blush from my entire collection, this one would be it. Its the most pigmented creme blush in my entire collection, that I have tried so far. I love using this underneath my powder blushes to give my blushes that extra staying power. I am sad to say that these NYC blushable creme sticks are discontinued but I have heard that some have been spotting them off and on at the Dollar Tree.
◊ Revlon ColorStay Brow Enhancer "Light Brown"
I bought this at CVS from their clearance sale. There was only this shade and a blonde shade. Although this is a bit light for my brows, I love the concept of this and how easy it is to apply onto the brows. I would definitely love it more if they had a dark brown. Light Brown does have a bit of a red undertone to it so its not the perfect color for me but it does last all day on my brows.
◊ Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Felt-Tip Eyeliner + Serum "Deep Brown"
I love this eyeliner and use it pretty much everyday. I don't really like using black eyeliner that much (unless I am wearing false lashes) but for everyday, natural eye looks I love this. I am still a liquid eyeliner beginner so this felt-tip applicator is great and easy for me to use. I don't know if it really helps my lashes grow but they do look a teeny bit longer when I have this eyeliner on.
◊ Physicians Formula Eye Shadow Matte Collection "Canyon Classics"
This is one of my favorite quads. It contains all matte shadows. I have a review with swatches already so I am not going to go into detail about this. LOL If you want to see my review with swatches, please click here: http://lisalovesmakeup87.blogspot.com/2012/08/reviewswatches-physicians-formula-matte.html
◊ Revlon ColorStay Eye Shadow Quad "505 Decadent"
I remember when I first got this and didn't really like it but now this quad has been growing on me. Its not the most pigmented quad that I have tried but the reason why I have been liking this is because I like using it for creating soft neutral eye looks. Plus I think once you get past the top layer, the eye shadows are more soft to the touch and more pigmented. I just love the two shadows on the left because they are great all over the lid colors.
◊ Nivea Lip Butter "Raspberry Rose Kiss"
This was actually my first lip butter and as you can see, I am almost done with it. Time for me to buy some more! LOL This just smells so good and is very moisturizing on the lips. I also have a review on this, if you want to check it out, you can click here: http://lisalovesmakeup87.blogspot.com/2013/02/review-swatches-nivea-lip-butter.html
◊ Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint "Perky"
This is actually my favorite shade out of all the Tarte jumbo lip pencils that I own. Its just a natural pink shade. I like the smell of these and the minty feeling that it gives my lips whenever I apply it. This is a great pink that goes with pretty much any eye look and is great for any day. Its very pigmented and isn't drying on the lips.
◊ Wet N Wild MegaLast Lipstick "909D Coral-ine"
This was actually my first Wet N Wild MegaLast lipstick and because of it, I have already bought about 4-5 more from this line. I was never a fan of matte lipsticks because they are always so drying on my lips and I am a person who needs to apply lip balm every couple of hours. This is a matte that isn't drying on the lips and I love how long it lasts on my lips as well. If you are looking for a drugstore matte lipstick that isn't too drying, you should definitely give this line a try!
