The Best Concealer for Creaseless Undereyes!

Standard

Hello guys! I got this concealer way back in April and I never reviewed it because for a while, I actually hated it. Now i’ve completely changed my mind and I have been loving it for my undereyes and for spot concealing. It’s just become an all around favorite for me!

It is the Urban Decay naked skin concealer!

Promise:
An innovative, high-coverage concealer that provides buildable, weightless coverage and leaves an invisible, Naked Skin finish. (sephora website)

This concealer does everything it says. It has a really good amount of coverage, medium to full, and isn’t drying at all. I don’t think I’ve found another concealer that lasts this long and is this lightweight. This doesn’t crease on my undereyes, even if I don’t set it with powder it seems to set itself and doesn’t settle into my lines. I have hooded eyes and almost all concealers crease there except for this one. It is really hydrating, if you have incredibly dry undereyes it will sink in and attempt to hydrate, which will cause cracking. That is what happened with me and why I didn’t like it at first. After I started using an eye cream at night that problem disappeared and it looks weightless and flawless on my skin when I apply it in the morning.

NYX Butter Gloss Review

Standard

Hello guys! I recently bought a couple of new NYX lip products and one of them was this butter gloss!

It turns out I actually have been really loving the formula so here is my final thoughts on it:

(From the NYX website)

Each glossy color delivers sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky, leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable.

Standard

Hello guys! I was traveling this weekend and found some brands that we don’t have in the drugstores where I live, so I picked up a few new things!

Wet and Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipsticks

I got the shades rebel rose and give me mocha which are my favorite sort of deep nude shades to wear everyday. These two were calling me and I couldn’t pass up the chance to try the formula!

Big Makeup/Vanity Declutter!

Standard

Hello guys! I feel like it hasn’t been that long since I went through my collection but there was just some stuff in there that I needed to get rid of.

Makeup:


Tarte Brow Toolbox – I never use this because the shades are too brown for me, but I think Christine might love it so i’m going to gift it to her.

Laura Geller Lipstick in Berry – I don’t feel like berry lips suit me very well anymore so I’m getting rid of this one.

Jane Iredale lip stain in the shade forever peach – I liked this at first but I don’t think the bright coral orange color suits me well when I have red hair.

W3ll people Bio Brightening Invisible Powder – I somehow ended up with two so I’m going to give away this one.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Mean Girls – This is too bright for me, but I think it would look gorgeous on christines tanner complexion so I’ll gift it to her.

Stila Cushion Gel liner in sapphire ink – I don’t like this formula at all so I’m getting rid of this.

Bareminerals Single Shadows in Rhyme and Lyre – Both of these are gorgeous but I have dupes for them in palettes.

NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick Review

Standard

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! I got this product a little while ago and I know there are millions of reviews on these lipsticks already but I wanted to share my take on it!

Promise: weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish! (from NYX website)

img_4020

Overview:

  • Cruelty free!
  • Will be a long wearing liquid lipstick
  • Price: $6.99 (bargain!)
  • dries matte

This lipstick has quickly become one of my favorites and for me definitely lives up to the hype that it gets! The formula is really lightweight and whipped which I enjoy because I like the feeling of nothing on my lips. It dries down fairly quick, definitely in less than a minute. The end result is transferproof, it doesn’t come off if you touch it and for me this works even better than the Too Faced Melted Mattes in that department. the applicator is really nice as well. In a lot of ways this reminds me of the tartiest matte lip paints, those being just a little more lightweight. These are so amazing for the price! The lasting power is about 4 hours with an even fade. This does not emphasize lip lines on my lips personally which I really enjoy.

I got the shade Bedtime Flirt which might be the best nude ever for fair skin!

Here is the applicator:

Swatch:

Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • transferproof
  • looks matte but not one-dimensional
  • gorgeous shade selection
  • light and more whipped formula
  • nice applicator which made it easy to apply
  • no emphasizing of my lip lines
  • nice amount of product
  • not drying on the lips

Cons:

  • Lasting power was not as long as I’d expected
  • A second coat will cause stickiness so try not to touch up unless you need to

That is all I have for you guys today! I hope you enjoyed my review and I know many of you must have tried this out for yourselves so let me know how your experience went down in the comments!
