My Review on the It Cosmetics Celebration Powder Foundation

Hello Ladies,

Recently, I purchased the It Cosmetics Celebration Powder Foundation. Believe it or not, but I have never ever tried a powder foundation. I have been eyeing this one for a year. Ulta is having a 50 percent off on a lot of makeup products September 3-23. I love how they do that. This product was 17 dollars and normally it would have been 30-40 dollars. I will make a video on this on my YouTube channel as well. I tried to upload it but I deleted it because I felt like that it wasn’t good enough to put it up. I will tomorrow. Anyways, at first I thought that the shade was going to be too dark. But it wasn’t too dark on my face. It is the perfect shade for me. I thought since it is a powder that it would look too cakey or looking like I have powder on my face. I was wrong. I love the coverage. It is medium coverage but that is good for me! I love how it feels like skin. I love how it lasts throughout the whole day. I was sweating today from the heat and it was fine. It didn’t wear off. I just wish that it was not SPF 50 so that I could get some color on my face. That’s the only con of it. It is my favorite powder foundation. It is good quality. My friend told me that my face looked flawless. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

February Target Haul 2015

Hello Ladies,

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today, I went to Target. I purchased some makeup products and a hair serum. One makeup product that I purchased is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I purchased two shades because I did not know which shade I am and they did not have a sample to test on my hand. I wish that you could test them on your hands because then I would not have had to purchase two shades. I have heard that this concealer is similar to the Nars one.  One shade is in light and the other one is in fair. The next makeup product is CoverGirl Lashblash Volume Mascara. I have heard amazing reviews on this one. Another makeup product is the NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie. Also, I purchased it the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Lip Gloss in the color Istanbul. The hair serum that I purchased is the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum that makes hair shiny and helps with frizz control. I wanted to purchase another hair serum for heat protection that helps with frizzy hair and makes it shiny. I will do a first impressions on all of these products. Stay tuned! Have any of you purchased these products at Target? Also, what are your favorite makeup products that you have purchased at Target? I would have to check them out next time I go there.

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?

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!

Sephora and Lush Haul 2015

Hello Ladies,

Happy 2015! Last night, my friend and I went to the mall and we went to Sephora and Lush. I needed to repurchase some products at Sephora. At Sephora, I repurchased Dior Lash Plumping Serum. I have applied it on my eyelashes before and my eyelashes looked longer. If you want to try a lash plumping serum I would try this one. I know it is expensive, but it really does work. The next makeup product that I purchased is the Kat Von D liquid eyeliner. It is my favorite liquid eyeliner!  The next makeup product that I purchased is the Make Up For Ever Professional- Paris Pro Finish. Believe it or not, I have never owned a powder finish before. I read amazing reviews on this one. I purchased two makeup brushes. One of the makeup brushes that I purchased is the Pro Allover Eyeshadow Brush. I cannot wait to try this one. I like how the bristles are soft. The next makeup brush that I purchased is the Pro Flawless Light Powder Brush 50. I needed a blush brush, because I threw out my other brush and this brush caught my eye. I have heard that you can use a powder brush to apply blush on your face. I cannot wait to try this one out. I got two NARS lipsticks for free since I am a VIB and it was my birthday last week. That is it all that I got at Sephora. Have you guys tried these products, if so did you like them?

My friend and I also went to Lush to look around and I needed a good shampoo that had volume and was not greasy in my hair. So I splurged and purchased Big shampoo. It costed 29 dollars for the shampoo, which is quite expensive. It smells so good! I will try it a lot of times and let you all know my opinions on this one. Have you ever purchased anything from Lush, if so did you like the products that you purchased?

My Review on the Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara 2014

Hello ladies,

Yesterday, I finally received my online order that I ordered from the Sephora’s VIB 20 percent off sale. It took seven days for them to send it to me which I was mad that it took that long. This morning, I applied the Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Mascara on my eyelashes and they look like they have more volume. I love how the mascara is a small wand. I love how when you apply it to your water lines, the mascara does not smudge. I hate when mascaras  smudge on my water lines.  Also, I love how the mascara looks like a normal sized. I think a mascara should be this size.  One negative comment, that I have about this one is that when you open the wand to see what it looks like, the wand looks dry. I thought a new mascara should not look dry. It did not look  like someone used it. It was wrapped up nicely which is good. Overall, it is a great product for making your eyelashes longer and have volume. These are just my opinions that I have of this product. I am not affiliated with Bare Minerals. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this mascara out and if you liked it. Also, what is your favorite mascara that you apply to your eyelashes?

My Review on the Sigma F84 Foundation Brush and the Sigma F64 Soft Blend Concealer Brush 2014

Hello ladies,

Recently, I purchased the Sigma F84 Foundation brush and the Sigma F64 Soft Blend Concealer brush. I have heard MakeupbyTiffanyD on Youtube, rave about these brushes, so I had to try it myself. Plus, there was a 20 percent off discount on the individual brushes on the Sigma website. The 20 percent off  of the individual brushes already ended, so you cannot get the discount now.  This brush is my favorite foundation brush, to apply my powder foundation and to apply my Bare Minerals Veil Ready Touch Powder onto my cheeks. Also, the concealer brush is my favorite brush to apply my concealer underneath my eyes.  The foundation brush and the concealer brush blends so well! You can purchase them online at: http://www.sigmabeauty.com/. The foundation brush costs $24.00 and the concealer brush costs $21.00. They are really good quality brushes. I love how they are so soft! I would recommend purchasing them. This post is my genuine opinions on the brushes. It is not a sponsor. That is it for this post. I will talk to you all really soon!
