My name is Rachel and I am a music teacher in New York. I blog about beauty and life, from the perspective of a teacher and a cosmetics amateur. I love to write and as my blog is starting to grow, I'm really enjoying connecting with others. Please visit me at thisteacherwearsmakeup.com !
I didn't think I'd like a cushion foundation but I'm in love with this one. It offers medium coverage while still feeling weightless. My skin doesn't get overly oily as the day progresses either. This is my new go-to for natural makeup days. Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion SPF 50++
This is an incredibly comfortable lipstick. In reality, it is more like a gloss (at least the shade Blythe is) because it doesn't have fantastic wear time and it doesn't leave much of a stain. However, it offers a nice sheer wash of color when applied.
I saw results almost immediately after beginning to use this serum. I apply it once a day and my skin has looked plumper and has a more even tone. I think this product is definitely worth the price tag and will continue to purchase in the future,
This was my first "high end" palette! It is very versatile for everyday and evening eye looks. I prefer to apply is over a primer, which helps the longevity and blending of the shadows. This is a must-have if you are new to the neutral eye shadow game!
Sadly this does not live up to its name for me. It is a great liner but it does not last the whole day in the waterline, at least not any longer than your standard eye pencil. It is very easy to apply but I wish the longevity was better. I would not recommend.
This is my favorite brow product. It's best to start with a little and build your way up, brushing through it occasionally as you go. It is a lot of product so it should last you a while as long as you consistently place the cap back on tightly. Will definitely repurchase.
I love this for a more subtle shimmer. I find that it's best to apply with a fan brush, though you can pat on with your fingers for a more intense highlight. Lasts as long as the rest of my makeup during the day. Highly recommend for others to try out.
This is one of my "holy grail" products. Wonderful coverage, though I would caution that it's best to start with a small amount and build it up because it can get cakey if you use too much. This lasts me the whole day with minimal shine on the nose.
I had a lot of trouble with this primer. I found that no matter how I applied it, it would eventually flake or look crusty. That being said, my friend who has more oily skin than I do really loves it and finds that it keeps her matte.
This may be my favorite liquid lipstick formula ever. It's not drying but it lasts all day. I even wore the shade Dopey to my wedding because it is a very pretty mauve. I also highly recommend Echo Park, Marshmallow, Femme and Bijou (which is new).
