Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share a review on a concealer that I really love from the drugstore that I haven’t heard anyone talk about in a while. For me this is a drugstore gem and I want to share it:

Overview:

  • $8.99
  • comes in 3 shades
  • cruelty free

Promise: Milani’s Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer is designed to instantly hide dark circles, spots, blemishes and imperfections with a brightening effect. (From Ulta’s website)

So I really love this concealer because it blends out really easily with your fingers, or a sponge. It gives a nice sheer-medium coverage on me and the really yellow tone of the concealer makes it nice for covering my undereye circles. Continue reading “Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review”

Almay liquid liner in black

Hello loves!! Thank you for joining us for yet another fun blog! A quick thanks to all who have been following our blogs lately, and if youre new WELCOME we love you!

Now for those who have been following our blogs for awhile know that i have a slight obsession with lipsticks. Its such a problem! My second obsession though if definitley eyeliner. I am always on the hunt for the best eyeliner. One thats water proof, smudge proof and long lasting. And im always eager to try out brands that ive never heard of. ALMAY being one of them!

Now this retails for about $6 or $7 which is pretty affordable for an eyeliner. Now it doesnt look like you can purchase it from their website, but i do know you can get it at Walmart or Ulta!

Now what does this promise?

Get beautiful definition with this easy-to-use liquid eyeliner. Water-resistant formula lasts up to 16 hours without irritation. Unique “inkwell” design delivers fresh color every time. Flex-tip applicator provides mistake-proof control.

Thats what this eyeliner is supposed to do, now lets take it step by step.

Did it give me beautiful definition?

Fairly good, the tip was very fine which did make for a more precise application, but i will say it gave of a very liquidy consistancy even after shaking before using. It was kind of like if i were to use black water color as eyeliner, which i wasnt a huge fan of for wings. For a more natural look without wings it was okay.

Is it water resistant?

I will say i was shocked to find that it was water resistant. If i lay down, there is always one eye that gets really watery. I have no idea why, but laying down after doing my makeup is always risky because of it and i dont know how many times ive ruined my eyeliner by it. Thankfully when i used this product, although i dont like the water color looking wings it gave me, it did last through my leaky eyes.

16hr and no irritation?

I will say it lasted for about 9hrs, at least thats how long i was wearing the product for. I have no doubt that it would definitley have lasted longer if i had worn it. As for irritation it did make my eyes itch a bit when i drew one some wings, but if i didnt add wings there was no irritation.

Mistake proof control?

Ladies we’ve all been there before, those bad eyeliner days where the tip decides to like go crazy? So much for straight wings right?I will say that the tip is rather flexible and the times i have used this eyeliner, i have yet to muff anything up.

Now is it my favorite eyeliner in the whole entire world? No, it just personally isnt the type that i like. If it was a thicker/ darker more matte consistancy i think it would totally be a must have. Alas it is not, but i do like to use this product when im do lazy to go all out and want a more natural look.

Thats it for todays blog!

5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog. Today I wanted to share the quick 5 minute makeup routine that I’ve been doing before I leave for classes or if I get ready in a hurry.

Step 1:

I use a hydrating primer to give my skin a little bit of a boost. My favorite is the Becca first light primer, it gives you bright and pretty skin!

Step 2:

Concealer! I always have dark circles and getting rid of them makes me look much more put together. I use the Dr. Hauschka cover stick concealer and just blend it in with my finger quickly. I always use the ELF tone correcting powder to set my concealer just so it doesn’t crease. Continue reading “5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday”

Airspun loose face powder review

Hello my lovlies! Im back with another beauty blog…duh! It would be a little weird if i was doing a video game review or something…

Today i will be review Airspun loose face powder. I’ve heard so much about this face powder that i’ve wanted to try it out for so long. The only issue i had was no matter where i looked, i couldnt find this powder anywhere. I searched high and low in every drug store with no luck. Next i searched Target and found nothing there.

Then the day came, the faitful day where i would find the much awaited Airspun loose face powder. I had to get some shots for college at my local walgreens, now here is a little fact about me…your girl HATES shots. The mere thought of getting a shot, or being around a needle terrifies me so bad. Usually i have my mom come with me, and yes im a nineteen girl and i still need my mom to come with me when i get shots. BUT THIS TIME SHE SAID SHE WOULDNT COME WITH ME…brat…Just kidding i love my mom and i understood how i needed to grow up. ANYWAY, before getting the shots, to relieve some anxiety, i decided to walk around the store. And somehow i came upon the cosmetic section…its really funny how thats the first thing i came across. Being the beauty holic i am, i looked around the beauty section, and then i found it, the loose powder that i have been trying to find for years. It was $9 and SUCH A STEAL.

Airspun Loose Face Powder:

Details:

  • Round continer
  • Holes to help filter out powder
  • Orange lip with some time of flower (?) on it
  • Little puff applicator

Pros:

  • Smells AMAZING, very soft sent, like baby powder
  • Very easy application, if you apply with a beauty blender you wont make a big mess
  • Long lasting
  • gives finished look

Cons:

none

All in all i give this product a 10/10 because i really feel this product gives your concealor and under eye area a creasless look, which im totally for. I also am a huge fan of the smell. For some weird reason it reminds me of a new born baby, which i totally 100% love. Im a huge fan of vintage things, and i guess you could consider this product vintage because it was made in 1935. I know i know the product that im using wasnt made in 1935, but the company was, which i really find interesting, because with other vintage companies like Revlon, Maybelline, and L’Oreal they are well known. Most people have heard of these brands, and its because of how well known their brands are that their name has survived so long, but the fact that this brand isnt very well known, and it is still surviving is truly amazing to me.

Thats it for todays blog!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Hello my lovlies! im here with another beauty blog….duh!

Today i will be reviewing Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara. I dont know why i feel like mascara is like a necessity in my daily life because i have extremly long eyelashes. No joke im pretty sure im related to a camel. Im also an extremely emotional person, so having water proof mascara is a MUST in my book. One of my biggest peeves about mascara is when you think its waterproof and its NOT! And then being the emotional person you are, cry and have it ruin the makeup that you spent hours on, a face full of like $80 bucks washed away by your tears, which makes you cry even more. Another peeve of mine is clumby mascara. So while looking for a mascara those are the two things i look for, waterproof-ness and no clumbing.

The previous mascara i was using was an LA Color mascara that i think was like a dollar or two ( you get what you pay for). I did not like that mascara what so ever. It wasnt waterproof..it wasnt even air proof, the slightest bit of movment would smudge the mascara, and by the end of the day i looked like a crazy alcoholic on crack cocaine. Another thing i didnt like about my old mascara was it was ALL clumb. On top of looking like an alcoholic, i also looked like a spider began living on my eyes. Needless to say, i was in dire need of a new mascara.

My mother uses Maybelline Great Lash Mascara all the time, and i always admire how it looks on her, so i decided why not give it a try?

So that i did!

Great Lash Mascara:

Description:

  • Pink tube
  • Green cap
  • Spiral brush
  • Normal sized

Pros:

  • Thin product
  • Waterproof
  • No clumbs
  • Long Lasting
  • natural look

Cons:

  • So thin that you need to apply multiple layers
  • Smudges slightly

All in all i give this product a 9/10 because i truly didnt find any problems with this product. My biggest problem was that it didnt apply very much product, so when wanting a more dramatic look youll have to apply two or three layers. But if you want a natural everyday look ( which i tend to lean toward) this product is perfect. I understand why my mom repurchases this product so much.

Thats it for todays blog!

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick

Hello my lovlies! If you guys have been keeping up with our blog, you know that Hailey and i love us some Marshalls makeup. Going to Marhsalls was one of my favorite things to do with Haily becuase her and i would pick apart the makeup/beauty section till there was nothing left! Anything with Hailey is a joy, its also just fun to talk about our lovely followers, and you better believe her and i talk about you all non-stop!

Today i will be reviewing Max Studio’s liquid lipstick. I found this lipstick at Marshalls while Hailey was helping me find shoes for graduation. Its funny because i told myself i was only there to get shoes and help Hailey pick out makeup or shoes if she needed it. Naturally i have no self control and bought this lipstick…want to know my reasoning? “Christine, you need this lipstick because you dont have lipsticks.” If you have seen any of our post, a majority of mine are lipsticks. I have a huge addiction to lipsticks its kinda scary. But hey, more content for our blogs right?

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick:

Description:

  • redish pink shade
  • plastic tube
  • cushioned applicator
  • long gold cap to hold

Pros:

  • smooth application

3 Favorite Dark Lipsticks for Winter!

Hello guys! It is almost officially winter and I have been loving dark berry lip colors and just darker shades in general! Today I’m going to share with you my favorite dark lipsticks for winter. These happen to all be from the drugstore and are ridiculously affordable.

I did do a post like this last year, if you would like to see how much my blogging skills have improved, click here 

Anyways! Here are my recommendations!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Chocolate Berries –


This is a beautiful, more wearable, brown toned purple! I love the formula and the color on this and it is such a lovely lipstick. This one is not a matte finish, instead its more of a satin. I like that because I think a little luminosity makes your lips look bigger which is important when you are wearing dark colors!

Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red –


This is my favorite dark red of all time. Against fair skin this looks beautiful and on medium and deep I think you would still really love this. It’s a very universal deep red! It is beautiful and lasts a long time even though it isn’t a matte formula. This won’t bleed outside your lip lines but it will transfer so you do have to be a little careful with it!

NYX Simply Vamp lipstick in the shade Bewitching –
