My Review on the Anastasia Contour Kit 2015

Hello Ladies,

Sorry that I have been MIA. I have been working everyday. Anyways, I have been using the Anastasia Contour Kit for a week. This is my first time purchasing a contour kit. I have never contoured my face. I like the colors that are in the kit, but I wish there was other color options for people who have pale skin. At first, I thought the medium shade was going to look too dark on my face. But when I applied it to my face, it did not look too dark.  I love how natural some of the colors  looks on my face. Also, I love how it is long lasting. I hate how products you have to keep on reapply them throughout the day. If you want to splurge and purchase a great contour kit, then purchase this one.  Also, if you are a beginner in contouring like me, then I would recommend this product. Has anyone purchased this kit? If so, what did you think of this one?  Also, What are your favorite contour kits that you like?

My Review on the MAC Pro Long Wear Eye Liner Black Ice

Hello Ladies,

I have been wearing this eye liner for a week now. I am going to do this review differently than I have done in the past. There are pros and cons on every makeup products. Here are my pros and cons on the MAC Pro Long Wear Eye Liner  in the color Black Ice:

Pros

– It does not smudge. I love a good eye liner that does not smudge when I apply it to my waterlines. I hate eye liners that smudge.

– I love black eye liners.

– I love how you can sharpen the tip with a sharpener.

Cons

– I do not think it is long wear. I wore it all week on my waterlines while I was at work and I had to reapply it.

– I think it is expensive for just one eyeliner. $20.00 for one eyeliner to me, seems expensive.

If you want a good eyeliner that does not smudge and if you want to spend 20 dollars on one eyeliner, then purchase this one. This is my first MAC eyeliner that I purchased.  Have you purchased this eye liner or an eye liner at a MAC store or online? If so, did you like the eye liner? I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon.

Sephora and Mac Haul 2015

Hello Ladies,

Today I went to my Sephora and Mac to purchase some makeup products. When I went to the counter of my Sephora, and asked for the Anastasia Contour Kit they said that they were sold out of it. So I told the sales person that they were holding it for me and then she gave it to me.  Anyways, I tried to open the paper packaging and I had to rip it in order for me to get it out. I love the packaging.  There are six shades, Sand, Vanilla, Banana, Java, Fawn and Havana. The top shades are for highlighting and the bottom is for contouring.  Since I have fair skin I am going to use the top shades for underneath my eyes.   I cannot wait to use the shades. Once I use the kit for a week or two I will do a first impressions on it.

I went to the Macys Mac counter and purchased two products. I purchased an eyeliner in the color black ice. It is the Pro Longwear Eye Liner.  My Sephora black eyeliner smudged a lot and I hate when an eyeliner does that. I have never worn a black eyeliner from Mac before. I am so excited to try this one. I will do a first impressions on that one as well. The other makeup product that I purchased at the Mac counter is a blush in the color Breezy.  When I told the sales person that I wanted a red shade for a blush she starred at me. I do love a gorgeous red on my pale face. It is a gorgeous red. I cannot wait to try that one as well. What have you purchased at Mac? Did you like the ones that you purchased? I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

Small Ulta Haul 2015

Hello Ladies,

Today, I went to my Ulta and I was going to purchase the Anastasia Contour Kit there. It turns out that they were sold out of it. So I just purchased the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush their. Then I  called Sephora when I was not driving and they told me that they are holding it for me for tomorrow. I had to call back Sephora to tell them that I want light to medium instead of tan to medium. The lady on the phone told me that it is just one color. I hope that it is going to be the right shade for me so I do not have to go to Sephora for nothing. I am excited to purchase it at Sephora tomorrow. So tomorrow if I have the Contour Kit, I will do a post on that and then I will do my first impressions on that as well. I do like the Real Techniques brush that I purchased today. The bristles are so soft. I have not used the bush yet since I only bought when I use the Contour kit. I hope you all have a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!

Beauty Gurus, I am Looking for a Great Red Blush

Hello Ladies,

Sorry that I have been MIA. I have been sick all week.  Anyways, I love my MAC Mineralize blush but I have had it for six-seven years. Beauty Gurus, I am looking for a red blush similar to my MAC one. I have not found any luck on finding the perfect red blush. I would be open to purchase an expensive blush, if it was a really great one.  I do not want a bright red color blush.  Also I want a blush that looks natural on. My everyday makeup is always natural except for the weekends when I go out. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions for a great red, natural looking blush. I hope you all are having a great one and I will talk to you all really soon!
