So being 100% honest, I hated this foundation when I first tried it (back with it released). The smell was super strong, it was getting very oily no matter what I did, and it was just soooo think. I repurchased it and tried it out again a few months later and I’m actually in love with it now.

It is thick, which is my least favorite part, so I always apply it with a sponge instead of a brush to thin it out instead. I get sooo many compliments when I wear this foundation, and because I don’t cake it on people often tells me it looks very natural. The smell isn’t as bad as when it first launched, although it is still here, and it does last ALL day. I can wear it for a good 16 hours and not have any issues with it moving around, slipping off, cracking, etc. Its become one of my favorite foundations!

Review for Professional Nail Polish Enamel Glow In The Dark 0.5 Oz. - 1 year, 4 months ago

I got this color in my October Vox box and was very impressed! I wasn’t expecting much from glow in the dark polish as it’s always seemed gimmicky to me.

Honestly it did glow much to my surprise! So that part was cool, but I did wish it stayed on my nails longer.

Review for: Uncensored - perfect universal red more...
I love me a good red lip and was excited about this one (primarily for the packaging). When I tried this on I LOVED the color, it is a beautiful bold red and it looked good on me and my friends who are much lighter in complexion. Upon wearing it around for a little while I came across one giant flaw: It bleeds horribly.

I haven’t had a lipstick bleed on me in a LONG time so I was surprised! Especially because it had seemed like the lipstick had dried. When I went to take a drink it was all over my cup and my friends had the same issue. I took it off to try to reapply but this time used a lip liner. Sure enough that helped immensely but it was still on everything when I ate and drank.

Hopefully the formula gets fixed with the next round of colors because I LOVE the packaging, but hate almost everything else.

Review for NARS Ita Kabuki Brush - 1 year, 6 months ago

While this brush is considered a staple by most it’s something I feel like is nice, but not necessary. It does apply one mean contour and is PERFECT for sculpting the face, but my only ‘eh’ about the product is the price.

For $55 I can buy a nice Hakuhodo, Chikuhodo, Wayne Goss, or Sonia Roselli brush and feel like I get the quality I’m paying for. I just don’t feel that way with the ita brush.

Review for M.A.C Cosmetics 217 Synthetic Blending Brush - 1 year, 6 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
My absolute FAVORITE blending brush.

Cost: $25 - Is it the cheapest thing in the world? No, but it’s about mid range to me. It’s something I don’t mind having for myself or my freelance kit.

Ease of Use: 5/5 This brush makes blending crease colors, outer v’s, and lower lash line colors so easy!

Longevity: 5/5 I’ve had my 217 for three years now and it hasn’t lost is shape, softness, or bristles.
Review for bareMinerals Loose Powder Blush - 1 year, 6 months ago

Generally, I don’t like loose powders for anything but setting powders, this is actually quite nice though!

The color pay off is lovely! A little bit goes a VEEERRRYYY long way. I recommend applying a little at a time and building up from there.

The stating power is also better then many of my MAC blushes. I have combo skin but this stays on my face allll day and doesn’t fade. I recommend bare minerals blushes highly!

Review for Kat Von D Lock-it Setting Powder - 1 year, 6 months ago

This is HANDS DOWN my favorite setting powder.

It is very light weight and doesn’t feel like anything on the face. Not only that but it’s a nice true translucent so doesn’t leave a white cast on even my deeper skinned clients. I have one jar for my kit and one for me as I love it for myself to. It helps keep my oil at bay as well as give my makeup a ‘finished’ appearance.

Review for MAKE UP FOR EVER Ink Liner Matte Liquid Eyeliner - 1 year, 6 months ago

THIS EYELINER IS MY ENTIRE LIFE.

It can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned.

It’s super black, applies like butter, and the calligraphy tip makes it so that anyone can easily create the perfect winged liner to a thickness of their choice. It’s my every day liner and I will continue to buy it.

Review for: Mink (contour toasted almond) more...
I wanted to love this foundation sooooo much. Like I really REALLY did. I like stick foundations because of their versatility and I like ABH because everything from the brand up to this point was good. Note; I said up to this point.

The application of this foundation was very dry and very difficult to blend. It wasn’t smooth like the MUFE sticks or any kid the creams that I’ve used so far. Even so, I worked it out, and hoped that it would wear well.

Spoiler alert; It didn’t.

The spots where I had built it up faded off mid way through the day, and I’m not a face toucher! I returned it, thinking I had maybe just gotten a bad one so exchanged it but even so, the new one did the same thing. So back to the store it went and I haven’t tried it since.
