Review: NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand in Yellow

NYX HD Concealer Yellow

As much as I love my MAC Pro Longwear concealer, I found that it was starting to get too liquidy for fast, everyday use. I needed something that I can blend out quickly to cover up my dark circles in the morning so I began using my NYX HD Concealer Wand in the shade Beige. This provides great coverage and is extremely easy to blend out. However, I realized that I also had this same concealer in the shade Yellow that I never used. Yellow is supposed to neutralize the purple-blue shades of undereye darkness so I thought this would be …

Review: Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo in Vivid

Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty is one of my favorite lip product brands. I’ve tried and reviewed a Lip Cream and Lip Crayon but never an actual lipstick. I decided to pick up this duo to try out a couple of colors for half the price of a normal-sized lipstick. I thought this was a great deal to try out some fun colors without having to spend a lot.

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo is said to be “A bite-sized lipstick duo of contrasting shades. This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to create your own custom look. With every application, …

Review: Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara2

As part of Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards program, during your birthday month you are able to receive a couple of free deluxe minis of various products. This year, those products are the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick and the Smoky Extravagant Mascara. Last year’s birthday samples included Benefit’s They’re Real mascara, which I enjoyed for the most part except that it is an extremely wet formula so it was hard to work with. I love trying out high-end mascaras because I always get my mascaras from …

Review: Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop

Clinique Cheek Pop

I decided to try out one of the four Cheek Pop blushes from Clinique after hearing nothing but great things about them. I’ve never been much of a fan of Clinique products because the brand seems to be targeted to those with more mature skin. However, beauty gurus continue to rave about these blushes so I knew that I had to try at least one of the shades.

Clinique Cheek Pops are described as “effortless, natural cheek colors. Discover pure, natural cheek color that looks virtually powderless. This silky smooth, stay-true formula …

Review: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

My Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge was looking pretty dirty so I decided to try out a cheaper alternative. I have heard many great things about this beauty blender from Real Techniques. I have many of their brushes, and love every single one of them so I knew this was going to be another hit for me!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is said to be “a 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge. Rounded sides blend large areas of the face with a repeated dabbing or stippling motion. Precision tip covers blemishes and imperfections. Flat edge for the …

Review: Kat Von D Ink Liner

Kat Von D Ink Liner

My beloved Stila Stay All Day Liquid liner dried out so I headed to Sephora in search for another great eyeliner. I heard so many great things about the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and was pretty sure that was the one I was going to pick up. However, I noticed a new waterproof liquid eyeliner right next to the Tattoo Liner (for the same price) called the Ink Liner. I swatched both of them and found the Ink Liner to be so much darker and inkier than the Tattoo Liner. Plus, this one is waterproof so I think that’s a …

Review: Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced recently came out with their own line of liquid lipsticks. It seems like every brand, both drugstore and high-end, are coming out with new liquid lipsticks and stains. I absolutely love my Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream and Sephora Cream Lip Stains so I was very excited to try these out!

The shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick, all in one high-impact formula.
