Review for Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette - 8 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This is the best palette I own. Hands down. And I'm someone who owns a lot of palettes, ranging from high end like modern renaissance to other luxury shadows like Tom Ford. These however are the most blend able, buttery, build able and easy to work with shadows I have ever come across. When I first saw the color selection, I was worried these colors wouldn't complement my fair, cool skin tone but I was thankfully so wrong! These colors are all stunning. You can go from a soft, everyday look and build it up to a more dramatic, even editorial look. I know the cost of the palette seems insane, but when I tell you that you truly only need this palette if you're a warm tone lover. No other palette's quality compares! Your warm toned shadow heart will be satisfied with this all in one palette.

Review for IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+ - 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I was so excited to see these at my local Ulta, so I quickly picked up the color fair and tried it on the next day. To start off, the color selection isn't that great in these. I get that they are meant to fit a variety of skin tones because the formula itself is quite sheer upon application, but I still felt as if the color was a bit off. Next, I didn't love the way this looked on the skin as soon as I applied it, which is never a good sign. It just looked heavy on the skin and sank into every pore, emphasizing texture and problem areas rather than helping mask them. I also found that application was difficult. The sponge it comes with does literally nothing to help the foundation sit well on the skin, so I tried both a brush and a beauty blender, but even then I found that I was left with the same heavy, unflattering look. 

Throughout the day, it ended up looking heavier and breaking up around my mouth. I have combination skin and it didn't hold up well against my oil. However, it also seemed to emphasize any dryness that I had. Needless to say, I was pretty confused and disappointed by this point. I think that only people with normal skin can wear this foundation honestly. 

I love it cosmetics, but this product was a hard pass for me, I tried to make it work many times but I found it to be way too difficult/impossible to look good. I love the idea behind the product, as it has such high spf and skincare benefits, but I'd much rather just use a good moisturizer and separate spf than use this product. I ended up returning it because I just didn't find it worth keeping especially for such a hefty price tag. I say go for the other it cosmetics CC cream instead! It's a lot better in my opinion for similar benefits.

Review for Glossier Cloud Paint - 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I ordered haze and beam when Glossier was offering their two for 30 deal, and since then, I ordered the other two (dusk and puff) because I love these so much! They look so natural on the cheeks, as if you just woke up from the best nap of your life. I'm one who tends to stay away from cream blushes because they either fade, come off on clothes, or make my acne prone skin break out. However, these cloud paints don't do any of that! In fact, I find that they last longer than many powder blushes that I own. I wear them for at least ten hours a day, and they always look as if I had just applied them. Even after taking a nap in which I'd roll around a lot in my bed, they still stayed and didn't come off on anything. I find that you don't need to use a lot of product, especially if you have a lighter skin tone. I use a pinky sized amount for both by cheeks then I blend it out with my fingers. This takes almost no time at all and it makes me look effortlessly put together and youthful. These are amazing and I think everyone should give them a try!

Review for Natasha Denona Foundation X - 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I'm just going to start off by saying that this foundation definitely has it positives and negatives. It claims to be full coverage but I find that if you have certain skin concerns like acne, it doesn't fully cover it. I tested this foundation when my skin was acting up with hormonal acne, just to check how much coverage this would give. I used a beauty blender to apply it and I found that it gave pretty good coverage, more like a high medium rather than full. It looked pretty great for the first few hours of wear, but I felt like it started to break down a bit once the oils on my face started to come through (I have combo skin and a pretty oily T zone) I didn't love how it was looking at this point in the day, but it wasn't terrible either. I just felt kinda meh about it for the rest of the day. Also, I felt kinda heavy on my face, it made me want to wash my face as soon as I got home. All in all, this foundation is nice, but it's not the best. Also the shade range is quite terrible and it seems like they all have a strong yellow/orange undertone. I got the lightest shade and it was still a bit too dark. Thankfully, she's going to be coming out with more shades in the future to include more skin tones! So that's great news. I will continue to reach for this foundation, but more so when I know I'm not going to be out that long. I'm also going to try applying this with a brush and applying a bit less to see if I can get more coverage. Hopefully this will also make the foundation feel a bit lighter on my face. I still recommend trying this foundation out for yourself! I think that if you have normal skin that doesn't get oily then this will be flawless on you!

Review for Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation - 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I'm so mad at myself for waiting so long to try this mega hyped foundation! Oh man, it makes your skin look super flawless and airbrushed! I have extremely large pores, which most foundations tend to emphasize, but this foundation just makes them disappear! When I initially applied it, I thought the coverage wasn't super great, but then I tried a brush instead of a beauty blender and that made a world of difference coverage wise (I still blended it out a bit with the beauty blender after using a brush) and I was left with flawless skin that stayed perfect all day long! I think this foundation can best be described as a satin, semi matte foundation upon application. It gets a little dewey throughout the day (on my combination skin at least) however, this doesn't ever look oily or unflattering, it just makes you look like you're radiating a youthful glow from within. I can imagine this foundation working on people of various ages and skin types, as my mom, who has more mature skin (and Lupus, causing her cheeks to be red at times) loves this foundation too! The price of this product is also quite fantastic given the quality of the product. I've tried many luxury foundations that don't match both the finish, coverage and longevity of this product. The only downside I'd say is how it doesn't come with a pump, making application a bit messy since it has to be poured out. This is easily fixed though by buying a pump (MAC has one that fits it perfectly!) You NEED this foundation in your life! It doesn't matter if you have a foundation you already like, you'll LOVE this product and find yourself reaching for it all the time. I didn't touch up this photo at all, and trust me, my skin is pretty problematic with scarring and some acne. This is really just how amazing this foundation is! :)

Review for Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder - 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I received this product complimentary of Influenster, all opinions are my own. If a setting powder could be iconic, then this one would definitely take that title. For what seems like years, women (and men!) all over the world have been talking about this powder for its ability to set foundation, while making your skin look poreless and matte all day. I have combination skin that leans a bit drier in the winter months. So, currently I have been using more hydrating powder rather than mattifying ones (sounds like an oxymoron I know, but I promise they exist!) Still, I'm testing this with an open mind. 9:00am: Just applied the powder all over my face, with a heavier concentration on my oily T zone, which is where I struggle with keeping matte throughout the day. So far so good, it mattified those area and doesn't seem to cling on to any dry patches. So far we're off to a great start! 12:00pm: Nothing much has changed from initial application thankfully. The only thing I noticed is how the powder seemed to settle into my pores a little bit (I have fairly large pores) but nothing too crazy. I'm getting a little shiny on my forehead but it seems to be less oily than when I would use another setting powder. 3:00pm: Ok, now I'm getting shiny. I feel like my cheeks seem a little drier than normal too. It could be the talc in the powder causing this. Still, it doesn't look dry of flaky, so that's good. I touched up my T zone with some powder and the velour puff that influenster sent a long with it. 7:00pm: Final check in! Once again, I need to touch up, I'm an oily mess on my T zone! I've also noticed how after reapplying, the powder seems to look a little heavy around my nose. It is also now clinging to the dry patches on my face after a couple of reapplications. My under-eye area also seems to look a little heavy/dry (I used the powder to set my concealer) So if you have a dry under eye area or or fine lines, I think this powder is too drying for that area and can empashize these issues.Final Verdict: This is still a great powder, it may just not be for those who have any dry areas on their skin. When it first launched, I feel that this powder was most likely the best given the finish it gives the skin and how long lasting it is, but companies have stepped up their setting powder game since then. There are some great powders out there now, and there are some that I still love a lot more.

Review for Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette - 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
There's a reason why this product is so hyped about, it's truly amazing! All of the shadows are so pigmented and smooth, making them easy to blend. What I love about this palette is that you can create such a multitude of looks, ranging from soft, neutral tones to bold, colorful looks that beg a second glance. I have been using it almost every single day since I got it, and each time I dip my brush into the palette and apply it to my lids, I'm taken aback by the pigmentation and how amazing all the shades look. It took me awhile to pick up this palette because I wasn't sure if the warm colors would complement my skin tone, but I was pleasantly surprised that they all look beautifully flattering! I may just have to blend a little extra to make the color a little softer on me, which I don't mind at all since the end result is so spectacular. I'm telling you that you need this palette honestly, the colors make it special along with the quality of all the shadows. This palette is in a league of its own when it comes to all the other eyeshadow palettes on the market!

Review for Glossier Generation G - 11 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I love these! They look so effortless but they give your lips just enough color that you look incredibly healthy and naturally this flawlessly beautiful. I like the color cake for a super natural your lips but better nude that gives my lips just enough color. I think the color zip is my favorite though because it's such a flattering shade of red that truly makes it look like you just ate a cherry popsicle. I feel like Snow White whenever I wear it. The only thing negative I have to say about these lipsticks is that they aren't that long wearing, I'd say the brighter colors have a longevity of about four hours without eating or drinking before they need to be reapplied. Still, I don't mind reapplying these because they don't claim to be long wearing or transfer proof. If you want an effortless matte lipstick that looks natural but beautiful, these are the ones I would recommend!

Review for Glossier Balm Dotcom - 11 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
These lip balms are my favorite! I own both the rose and cherry, and I love them equally. They are super hydrating on the lips but don't feel heavy or like a mask. They leave your lips soft and hydrated. I also love the slight tint that the rose and cherry leave, they make it perfect for days when you want a little color on your lips but don't want it to be noticeable. I always use the rose balm on my lips when I go to bed and I wake up with hydrated, healthy, soft lips that are ready for anything I want to put on them that day. These make wearing liquid lipsticks that much easier, as those can be drying so I want to prep my lips with extra hydration. This product does an excellent job! I highly recommend them, they are worth the higher price tag!

Review for Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Infused Highlighting Palette - 11 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This palette wants to be everything, but I feel that it comes up short. I'm going to start off by talking about the highlighter, which I find to be quite glittery and slightly chunky. It just doesn't even seem quite reflective or glowy like a highlighter. It truly seems like an eyeshadow more than a highlighter. The highlight is also more of a rosy, peachy tone, which can be flattering on medium to deeper skin tones, but this isn't the case on fair complexions. I guess it can be used as a blush topper, but I find it too glittery for that too. Thus, I have no idea how I can even make this work aside from an eyeshadow, but that's not what I want to use the palette for since I have eyeshadow palettes for that. The bronzer is just too shimmery and warm toned for my skin. However, I had my much darker friend try the bronzer on her skin and it didn't show up at all. I don't truly know who can use this bronzer and have it look nice or show up at all, perhaps if you have a light skin tone that isn't too fair and you don't mind shimmer in your bronzer, then you may like this. The only thing I sorta like about this palette is the blush, which is a pinky peach color that doesn't seem to have much shimmer. Still, I have blushes that I like so much more. The separate blush in this collection is SO much better than the blush in this palette, that I would recommend skipping this palette all together and picking up the papa don't peach blush instead. It's better not to waste your money on this palette as there are much better bronzers, blushes and highlighters out there.
