Review for Julep Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed Facial Oil - 2 months ago

I enjy this product do much. It gives my skin a glow plus moisturizes it. I use this as my summer moisturizer this year. I press the oil into my skin instead of masaging it in. Works like a charm!

Review for NYX Macaron Pastel Lippies Lipstick - 2 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I purchased the shade Citron. I love the color. It is hard to find an actual yellow lipstick. I love the end result but I have to do a lot of work to get the payoff I am looking for. The lipstick applies very streaky. I have to pat it on, blot, pat on, blot, do this three more times even then the color transfers easily. I found myself needing to pair tvwith other lipstick colors.

Review for: ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Norvina Eyeshadow Palette more...
I bought this palette from Ulta Beauty the week it debuted on the store online. It came with free shipping so I jumped on it. I am African-American with Medium-Deep Tan skin. This palette transforms into a warm neutral palette on my skin. If I want the colors to be cooler I can always apply a white base.  My test for any palette is to see if I can create work-friendly looks with it. I have been doing that this week. This palette does pass the test for that. The pigments are standard for ABH, where they last until you take them off. The mattes are super soft and buttery but they do have a lot of fallout. I recommend not using a fluffy brush because it will produce kick back and more fall out. Use a falt (packing) eyeshadow brush. If you must use a fluffy brush, then swirl once and dab the brush in the pan to pick up the shadow shavings. This will prevent a lot of waste.

The shimmers are coarser. You really should be using a flat eyeshadow brush with them. If your eyes are sensitive to glitter then I suggest using a thicker or creamier primer/base before applying the shimmers as you will feel some discomfort.

You can use both the mattes and shimmers wet or dry. Of course, you know the mattes will appear intensely pigmented and the shimmers will become foil-like.

I will update this review with the work-friendly looks I created using this palette when I am on the app.

Review for: St. Tropez (iridescent rose gold) more...
This is a nice gloss. It doesn't have the shine I like but it does have the pigmentation and wear I need. I can rock this gloss with a minimal makeup look and feel confident that I don't need to reapply after every drink. I accidentally fell asleep with it on and most of the color was in tact.

Review for 6 KLEANCOLOR MADLY MATTE LIPSTICK SET BOLD VIVID WHITE BLACK LIP STICK + FREE EARRING by Kleancolor - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I bought this set for around $6 and some change a couple of years ago. These are bargin bin lipsticks similar to the quality that was out in the 90s. They are matte but transfer. Some colors like Liberty streak a lot. But they mix well with each other. I get better results layering colors. In the photo I will attach, I used Arctic as a base and applied Slate over it. I blotted between layers, this gave me better and longer wear.

Review for Duo Brush-On Lash Adhesive - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I love this lash adhesive. Before I discovered this one, I was stuck with only wearing magnetic lashes because other adhesives damaged my skin. This did not harm my skin or rip off my own lashes. It does dry clear do if you accidentally glob on, it won't show. I have attached a pic of natural looking lashes I wore that had an ultra thin band and you can't see any trace of glue.

Review for COVERGIRL TruBlend Matte Made Liquid Foundation - 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Review for: Soft Tan more...
I am shade M50 Soft Tan and I have to admit that this is the first time that a Covergirl foundation has actually matched my skin tone. Before this, the closest shade was soft honey in other formulas but that shade was a bit on the orange side. 
The Matte Made is a Light to Medium with a possible full coverage if you are willing to layer it on enough. I wouldn't suggest doing that for the summer months, though. As with any liquid foundation you will get the sheerest coverage applying with a flat foundation brush and fuller coverage with a sponge.
The finish is matte. But not a dry matte more like the matte you get after you clean your face and pat it dry with a soft towel. If your skin is oily, you will need to use a primer and powder that help keep your makeup looking matte longer. If you have normal skin you will last longer. I didn't get 12 hours of wear but I did achieve 8 before needing to refresh.

Review for Uncle Ben's Whole Grain Fast & Natural Instant Brown Rice - 3 months, 3 weeks ago
I'm on a low carb diet and brown rice is okay for me to eat. I eat it alot with veggies. The rice is easy cook whichis always a good thing. It also works well in burritos. My fave pairingso far is this rice with chicken and vegetables in a spicy mango sauce.

Review for Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up! Cream Highlighter - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I thought this highlighter was going to be too light for me but it gives a nice glow that is noticeable and can be blended down to a subtle glow. I love that kind of versatility in a highlighter. I create work-friendly makeup looks for my blog and it is one of my picks for women to use when they want a work appropriate glow.
