Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer

I am always on the hunt for the most flawless full coverage foundation and this one is a close runner up. The Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is my current all-time favorite foundation. I have acne scars and hyper-pigmentation and this foundation covers it all up so nicely. It comes in 20 different shades and I am the shade ‘fair’ which is the lightest shade. It isn’t a completely matte foundation so my nose does get oily throughout the day and the foundation does rub off after a while if you do not set it. Other than that, I highly recommend this foundation if you are looking for a full coverage look. You can purchase it at Clinique, Sephora, Macy’s, Ulta, and Nordstrom for $27 which is such a great price!

Makeup Monday: Sephora Collection Retractable Brow Pencil Waterproof

I recently purchased the Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Brow Pencil in Rich Chestnut. I’ve always used a gel for brows and I thought it was time to try a brow pencil. I really like how the pencil looks on my eyebrows. It’s comes on very light and thin so that you’re able to create hair like strokes as thick or thin as you want. There are 7 different shades to match your eyebrows perfectly. I also like the small wingtip comb on the other side to help brush out your eyebrow and even out the color. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants precision when doing their eyebrows.

Makeup Monday: Sephora Collection Long Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner

I am always on the hunt for the perfect liquid eyeliner. I prefer to use liquid eyeliner over a pencil because it creates a bolder and more defined winged eyeliner. I decided to steer away from drugstore brands and try an eyeliner from the Sephora Collection. I was surprised at how affordable most of the Sephora brand products are. This eyeliner that I purchased was $12 which is not that much more than a drug store eyeliner. What I really like about this eyeliner is that it is very dark unlike other eyeliners I’ve tried that don’t have much ink in them. It’s also great for creating the perfect winged eyeliner because the brush allows it to create small and big lines. The downside of the brush is that it is hard to control and can create crooked lines if you’re not an expert at eyeliner. I prefer to use a pen eyeliner over a brush eyeliner just so that I can have more control. I don’t plan on buying this again but I might try a pen eyeliner from the Sephora because I like the quality of Sephora’s products.

Makeup Monday: Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Mascara

I’m starting a new segment on here called Makeup Monday where I review makeup products I have purchased. The first product I want to review is the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Mascara. I discovered this product one day while shopping at Costco. I’m really into false lashes and creating the long lash look. I thought it was so cool that this mascara can create these fake lashes when applied. It comes with two tubes. The first thing you do is apply about 1-2 coats of the mascara to help “prime” or get the lashes wet so that you can apply the lash extension fibers from the other tube. Then apply the mascara again to brush out the fibers in order to get the fake lash look.

This mascara actually works! It does create very long lashes like it promises. The thing I don’t like about this mascara is that it’s very sticky and the lashes can very easily stick and clump together. It can also stick to some of the bottom lashes around the corners of your lashes as well. It’s an easy fix but it’s just a hassle. I recommend it to people who want to create the false lash look without having to use false lashes. It’s a bit pricy so it might not be worth it for most people. Here are a few places you can purchase this product:

Too Faced– $35

Sephora– $35

Amazon– $38

Ulta– $35
