I am an actress, dancer, business owner and plain old nerd. I love dressing up and playing different characters (Disney Princesses are the most fun!) Makeup has become a huge hobby/collection of mine. Love testing out new things! Www.onceuponadreamny.com
I actually really like this for under my eyes. I’m very dry there and most powders suck the moisture out and make me look way older than I am. But this one just lightly sets my concealer without looking dry or changing the color. For the rest of my face it looks awesome when first applied but honestly doesn’t last an hour. So it’s weird, I like it but only for very short term like a selfie or something. For reference I have dry/ combo skin.
Love love love the smell of this mask. I would rebuy it just for the scent alone. And it lasts all day. So if that’s not something you would like maybe you wouldn’t like it. But overall it’s a nice moisturizing hair mask. I have thick, dry and damaged hair and I lighten my hair on my own. So it’s not a complete miracle worker for me but it does a nice job for what I’m working with!
I got the original version of this palette for my mom. She like very simple makeup that she can wear to work. So she uses most of the lighter shades. A lot of them kind of look the same on her skin tone though. She’s more of a medium olive skin tone. Nice palette. Good for beginners. Don’t know about the updated formula and how it compares though.
The absolute best gelato at the supermarket!!! It is too expensive for me to buy this weekly but every now and then I treat myself. This is just one of my absolute favorite flavors from them. The hazelnut one is also a dream!!!
This is the biggest drugstore brush I’ve found. It’s so fluffy yet dense and just wonderfully soft. I use it to powder my entire face and in a couple of sweeps I’m done. It picks up a lot of product so you might need to tap off excess if you don’t want a lot on your brush. But overall I love this brush and real techniques!!!
I love elf brushes. They are affordable and actually good quality. I got the C brush thinking it was like a packer brush but it’s more full and slightly more fluffy than I anticipated. I still love it but I use it for the outer corners of my eye instead of what I originally wanted it for.
I absolutely love these! They are so easy to apply and do a multitude of different looks with. I love using a brush and adding a bit as a liner for extra sparkle. Plus all the colors are so multidimensional and look a hundred times better in person than any picture does it justice. Def worth looking into and picking up!
Lancôme absolutely nails it when it comes to a pink lip. They manage to take hot pink and make it look classy and desirable. This formula is no exception. It goes on like a gloss but super light weight. Almost like it’s not there at all! Plus I like how you can build it for more intensity. With that said this color isn’t shy with one layer though, so be prepared for pink! Definitely an interesting formula and well worth checking out! Oh and lasts a long time too.
My brother uses this. I don’t so I can’t really speak for it. But my brother is very picky and hasn’t used anything but this for years. So I’d say it works. Plus his hair always looks put together without looking greasy, plastic, or stiff.
