Review for: Como La Flor, Dreaming Of You, Amor Prohibido more...
Love these! As always, MAC doesn't disappoint. They did a great job of capturing Selena's style and spirit in these lipsticks colors, and they're every bit as great as MAC's other classic lipstick colors. I own all three (although my Amor Prohibido got all melted after being in my purse all day) and my favorite is Dreaming of You. Looks great on any skintone!
Doesn't smell anything like guava, unfortunately, but it's still a really nice scent and a great formula. The scent is not overpowering, slightly tropical, and is great for moisturizing before bed or after a shower. I keep mine at my desk and use it all the time at work! It's nice a thick and hydrating, but it never leaves that greasy residue on my skin that body butter often does. I love the packaging too.

I'm not crazy about Bare Minerals and this product is no exception. I find their products sort of boring. This blush is nice and fine, so I don't feel like I get a ton of product on my brush at once, which is nice. But it doesn't apply nicely, even with a good brush, because it tends to settle in where it first touches your skin. I don't feel like I get a nice even blend.
Review for: (3 Pack) NYX Concealer Jar - Light more...
This concealer is nothing special. I like the nice little packaging, but it's too oily for me to use on my whole face and all my problem areas. I used a concealer brush to apply it under my eyes before foundation, but it doesn't work that well so I always end up going over it after foundation with another concealer for an extra coat. It's just not really a great formula. Thick and kind of oily, but not very effective.
Not really a huge fan of this. The color is pretty, but nothing special. To be honest, I just don't really like cream highlights and I'm not a fan that this one is in stick form because it is a pain to apply. It doesn't blend super well either and is just sort of impractical.
This highlighter is so pretty and natural looking. It blends really nicely. I'm not usually a huge fan of highlighter and I prefer a more matte look, but this highlighter is so light that I don't mind applying it to my entire face for a dewy glow.
I LOVE this product. I have the tiniest little tube that I got either as a sample from Ulta or from an ipsy bag. I use it all the time and I've had it for a couple years now. I apply it after I apply foundation, powder, and eye makeup. it's very thick so you literally only need a tiny dot to brighten your eyes. I finish with powder to set and it lasts all day.
This primer is great for oil control. It's very mattifying and I like that it has sort of a blurring effect on your pores and imperfections. The only thing I don't like about it is that I feel like I go through a tube so fast so it doesn't really seem to be worth it for me.
My absolute favorite primer. I was hesitant to use a primer because they are either too thick, too drying, or too oily. This one doubles as an awesome moisturizer, which I was shocked by because my skin is suuuuper oily and I live in South Florida humidity. But I can't say enough how much I love this primer! It's so light and I love that it doesn't really have a scent. It's super hydrating and perfect with or without makeup.
