So I’ve been natural for 3 years. I typically don’t use products geared for natural hair on my hair because they tend to change the texture of my hair, make it flat or make it dry. I was excited about this product because of all of the other great reviews. Initially when doing the pre-wash I was very excited my hair was very manageable being that my hair is extremely thick, I was showing my boyfriend how easy it was for me to detangle, which typically is very hard, however after shampoo and conditioning my hair I immediately hated the product, it behaved with my hair as if there was a chemical in it, I could not get my usual fullness or fluff, my hair immediately became a wirey thin mess, I washed my hair multiple times to try and get it back to normal. If you don’t like the thickness and fullness of your natural then this is the product for you, but I’d love your full bodied fro, leave it alone.
NYX has always been one of my favorite cost efficient brands! But these Lip Suedes are AWESOME especially for their price point. The colors and pigments are amazing! Vintage is the perfect shade for a sexy toned down look and KITTEN HEELS is that high volume shade that transforms any look into showstopper!!!! 💄 for the price point and quality you’re basically STEALING these from NYX! 💄#FaceByArista
The La Base Pro from Lancôme is one of my go to primers! I have very oily skin, so even thou the consistency of the primer seems very oily, it actually sets Matte once on the skin. This is perfect for all day wear! I have tried so many different products with my skin being oily and so far this one gives me the longest wear. It’s a high end product, but it’s worth the money, especially if you want to get long wear out of your makeup. #FaceByArista 💄
ColourPop Lippies are one of my favorite brands of Matte Lil colors. They have a wonderful consistency, easy to apply and they last very long. The give of the colors are perfect and very true to the advertised colors as well as the tube! My only complaint would be that the colors LAX & ROOCH tend to get caked and dry out . Aside from that I highly suggest ColourPop ! Quality, affordable and highly pigmented! 💄
The Tartiest pro pallet is any makeup artist dream. The pigments of the colors as well as the consistency of the shades. I was honestly very impressed the first time I used the pallets, none of the shades require you to use a primer you get the quality of the product even with just swatches! This has literally become my everyday go to pallet. Even with me being a black woman, the lightest brown still shows light brown on my complexion. I will always buy tarte .
Although I love the colors of the Anastasia contour pallet. I wish the consistency of the products was a Little creamier, the colors are kind of stiff, you’re forced to warm the product on your hands before Application. I actually wish the product had the consistency of the Anastasia potted concealers. And for the deep tone, it would help if the orange undertone in the Browns wasn’t so heavy. All together I love her products this one is just on the fence for me.
