This brow pomade is my underrated fave. It’s my go-to if my Sephora store is sold out of my shade of the Anastasia Dip Brow, because honestly, they’re almost the exact same product. The only (slight) difference is that the Lancôme version is less creamy, which might be nice for someone who is just venturing into pomades and isn’t quite used to the process of painting their brows on yet, because the creamier the product is, the easier it is to mess up in my opinion. And obviously, the Lancôme version has less shades, but I would still recommend it just as much as I recommend the Anastasia version. Both are fantastic.
This product has become a cult classic for a reason. It’s the perfect way to fill and shape your eyebrows precisely, and for brows that last all day. The formula is so creamy and easy to work with, as well as easy to clean up if you make a mistake (which I do a lot because the creaminess makes it easy to slip). I recommend this to absolutely everyone. I can’t imagine not using a pomade to do my brows with anymore.
When I pulled this blush out of my Sephora bag when I got home from shopping, I thought I must have grabbed the travel size by mistake. This blush is TINY. But as it turns out, this blush only comes in one size, and that size is itty bitty. While it is annoying that you’re still paying a lot for less blush, this blush is actually soooo nice. One dip of your brush into the pan and you’ve got enough pigment. Obviously, this also means this blush is very easy to over-apply. Of all the blushes I’ve tried, this is the one I definitely should have read reviews for first, because it’s a very confusing product. Nevertheless, it is beautiful, but I can only give it 3 stars because the price does not make sense with the amount of product you get.
This blush range includes some really awesome colors. It’s the same formula as the Super Shock eyeshadows- almost spongy and wet, yet still super pigmented and blendable. This does make it a little difficult to use with a brush, but not impossible once you understand the consistency of the product. I will warn though, while I love the two shades I got (Drop of a Hat and Prenup) they don’t look the same as they do online. They’re much more red in real life, so that could potentially be the case for all of these blush shades. Still beautiful, regardless!
This blush has the perfect amount of shimmer to it for the summer. The peachy shades were great for my skin tone, and the pigment wasn’t overwhelming enough to make me look like a clown. The only complaint I could make is that it can get a bit crumbly and chalky in the box, which makes opening it a little messy.
This foundation is perfect for people with dry skin. I mix a bit of this with my Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion foundation when my skin is feeling particularly dry, and the two together are the perfect combination. No caking or smudging, and no oxidizing.
This is my go-to foundation. It’s great for combination skin, or in my case, oily skin that tends to dry out in the winter. The coverage is buildable, and it doesn’t cake up throughout the day or oxidize like some of the other Laura Mercier foundations do.
I use this sponge to blend out my foundation and concealer. It’s super light and bouncy, which makes it great for blending under my eyes without pulling. I wouldn’t recommend it for applying powder for baking, though. It doesn’t seem to pick up powder very well at all.
This makeup sponge does live up to all its hype. It makes blending foundation/concealer so simple, and it’s also great for applying powder for baking. However, I wouldn’t recommend it simply because there are makeup sponges out there that are just as quality and half the price.
