I absolutely love this primer! It works especially well for those with dry skin. I am a huge fan of Laura Mercier face products and this primer does not disappoint. I have bad acne scarring and texture and when I use this primer, my makeup looks so beautiful and flawless all day. I love to pair this with Laura Mercier’s Mineral Powder Foundation but it also works great with my Estée Lauder Double Wear Liquid Foundation and even cheaper foundations like my Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation. For the price, it’s definitely worth it. A little goes a long way and this primer lasted me a very long time, and I was using it on a daily basis. It applies beautifully to the skin and almost feels cooling on the skin like a moisturizer. I would highly recommend this product especially to those with skin on the dryer side. I also believe you should be able to get a sample of this at Sephora or at a Laura Mercier beauty counter in a department store.
This is my absolute favorite lip liner! I have had this product for over a year and still have plenty of product left. It is definitely worth the money as a little goes a long way. This liner is long-lasting and the formula is so creamy and glides on effortlessly. It really does a beautiful job at both lining and plumping my lips. I haven’t had any issues with this product rubbing off or transferring once applied. I love the color Fondant as it is very close to my natural lip color and also pairs perfectly with my favorite mauve-taupe lipsticks.
If you are looking for the perfect, natural pink shade with an amazing price tag and great staying power, look no further! This Milani Baked Blush is absolutely beautiful! The quality is so good and is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I’ve had mine for a very long time and still have a lot of product left. I will definitely be repurchasing in the future and will try more colors! Currently I have this in the color Dolce Pink and it is my absolutely favorite blush! Even though this is a drugstore brand, it is just as good as the high-end blushes I own.
This is my favorite bronzer and I use it daily! I can’t say enough good things about this bronzer. I have had this for a very long time and still have so much product left. I will definitely repurchase in the future. The color is highly pigmented and gives you a beautiful, natural bronzey-glow. I gave this in the color Dolce. I haven’t tried the other colors but will try one of the darker shade options once the summer months are here. I highly recommend this bronzer - the price is great and the product is super high quality!
I cannot say enough good things about this palette! Not only are the shadows highly pigmented but the quality is super rich and the shadows blend effortlessly. There is little to no fall out when applying these shadows and the color lasts all day. I have never had any issues with the shadows fading or softening throughout the day. These shadows are super easy to blend and build up. Even though this is a drugstore brand, their products (especially this palette) is really high-end quality. I would totally recommend this palette. There are so many color combinations that you can use this for both day and night looks. I use this palette several days of the week and will definitely be repurchasing once I have hit pan on all the colors.
I purchased this liner in Pretty Pink. I absolutely LOVE this liner. It is by far my favorite drugstore liner. Though it may have the price tag of a drugstore item, it is just as good as my high-end lip liners. The formula is so creamy and it goes on like butter! Super smooth and glides on effortlessly. Once applied, this liner does not budge and it lasts all day! I’ve never had any issues with it coming off or transferring. I would highly recommend as there are several color options to choose from and the price can’t be beat!
I love this foundation! This is a great drugstore foundation, not only because the price is so good, but the product itself really works great with my skin! My HG Liquid Foundation is Estée Lauder Double-Wear but I was looking for a drugstore alternative to have on hand for daily use so I could sacs my double-wear foundation for when I like to get extra fixed up. I had read a review that the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Liquid Foundation was a dupe for the Estée Lauder Double-Wear Foundation. So I decided to purchase this foundation to give it a try. While I don’t exactly agree with it being a dupe for double-wear, I do think it is a great drugstore option. I apply this foundation with my Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki and then smooth out any harsh lines with my BeautyBlender. I usually have to apply two layers of this foundation to get full coverage. I also have to set with a powder as the consistency is very thin, but once the foundation has been set, it looks flawless and does not budge all day. I definitely would recommend this option for someone who is looking for a medium to full coverage foundation with both a great price tag and has many skin tone options to choose from.
I have several different BeautyBlender sponges and the Pure is my favorite! I definitely recommend this one, especially to those who have sensitive, acne prone skin like I do. I wash my sponge each time before use but I have never had any issues or breakouts since using this sponge. I love the BeautyBlender Sponge because it really makes my makeup look flawless and it does not require a lot of effort on my part. Definitely recommend if you’re looking to try out a beauty sponge. You won’t be disappointed if you go with the BeautyBlender brand.
The original BeautyBlender is one of the very best beauty sponges! It really is hard to find an alternative choice that truly compares. This sponge works well both dry and wet, but I prefer to use it wet. I like to use the sponge to smooth out my foundation and concealer before applying my setting powder. The sponge is super soft and very easy to mold and manage to fit in small spaces, like around your nose and inner eye corner. I have been using a beauty blender for years and honestly I don’t think I could manage without one. I own several including the Pure BeautyBlender Sponge & the Pro BeautyBlender Sponge. The only sponge I think that comes close in comparison, but is definitely heavier and not quite as soft, is the Real Techniques Beauty Sponge. I give this product a 5 star by the way cause it is absolutely amazing, makes my makeup look flawless, and lasts a very long time before it starts to breakdown and I need to repurchase.
