Review for: URBAN DECAY Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette more...
One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes right now. Colors are pigmented and work well with or without primer. Very versatile palette and amazing for WOC! here’s some of my pics with my latest look using the palette. IG @its.sarahmae
The Holy Grail palette is my go to palette and one of my most reached for palettes. I love the matte shades, which are great for transition shades. The shimmers are so pretty as well. The colors are very pigmented and even shows up with no primer. 😍
This brow pencil is my HOLY GRAIL. I can't be without it. It's affordable, easy to use, especially for an everyday brow. This pencil is the one of the few pencils I'll use for my brows. The spoolie tool on the other end is very helpful. I will always buy again - especially in chocolate and espresso!
I have this contour-highlighting palette in deep. I really use the deeper color for contouring - it blends very well with my skin tone. I just add a little face oil, to make application even smoother. It is super affordable as well. The only thing that I do not like is the highlighting color - it does not fit my skin tone, but I have another product that I use for that.
MUFE's Ultra HD foundation is one of my favorite foundations! It's one of the only foundations that I use the most. I've been using it consistently for about a year. Buildable coverage and can be used for a natural to full coverage look and anything in between. It's not thick, which I love about it - water-based consistency (lightweight). It has a semi-matte silky finish. I love that there is a wide shade range and in the winter time, I can wear just one color (177 - Y505 Cognac). It is on the pricey side ($43), but because of the converage, consistency, and the way it looks on camera, I keep coming back! It looks flawless on camera and I can wear it for at least 8 hours and it still looks great!
Love this concealer!! It's the perfect highlighting shade for me. It is #lightweight and has great coverage. It is also easily blendable. It can give a dewy look/finish and not too drying. Doesn't cake up under the eyes either! The only concealer that I have not put down in months.
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for review. I really love the applicator on this liquid lipstick. Easy and precise application. It is not very drying, which I also liked. I like the color 400 and I haven't worn a red in this shade in a VERY long time. At first, I did not like the original swipe of color, but after a few layers, it looked better. I would wear it again, possibly paired with a darker lip liner since that's usually what I do with these shades, but it does look nice by itself. It is a fun shade to wear.
I received this pack in my #flawlessvoxbox from Influenster. These crisps were really tasty! I had them for a work-snack and they fulfilled my snacking crave! They are nice and crunchy and is lightly salted. I also liked that it was only 90 calories! Only disappointing this is that there were no "peas" in the middle. I love peas, so I was expecting to see those in the crisps. I would eat these again for a snack.
