Hey folks, today I want to share some of my favorite products that I have not talked about before. Some are newly added to my life, and some I have had for a while and are just now getting around to using them and fell in love. You know the whole “where have you been all my life” when in reality it was in my not yet used drawer under my 4 tubes of back stock of the Jordana best lash extreme mascara (couldn’t find it for a while so when I did, I went a little fan girl) no judgment right, good. So these are items that I have been loving and have been in regular heavy rotation.
Clinique Pore refining solutions instant perfector. I use this primer on my cheeks and around my nose to fill in pores and fine lines without clogging. It is a flesh tone color but it doesn’t show up on the skin once it is blended in. A little goes a really long way. If you use too much, it will ball up on you so be careful. This is the same as the Benefit porefessional primer if you have used that one before and it’s a 2/3 of the cost. You can get this at Clinique counter and online Clinique.com $21.
Essence say no to redness concealer (I purchased mine at Ulta for only $2.99)is a color correcting crayon. it is super creamy and melts right into the skin. Very blendable. I use it around and on the tip of my nose before I put on my foundation. The green color that I picked up, which they have other color correcting shades as well, helps counteract redness. I tend to get a little red around that area.
Elf HD lifting concealer in light. I love this little concealer and you can get it at target for $3.00. The shade is light but it’s not really light, it’s only a shade lighter than my skintone which makes it great for a everyday highlight under the eyes. Can’t beat that price and definitely worth the try. It is very blendable and so pretty under the eye. It’s not full coverage, but I love it to highlight under the eyes. Thinner that the NYX HD concealer, which I love as well.
Milani conceal and perfect foundation in 07 Sand (CVS $9.99). This foundation smells so good to me lol. It has a mousse consistence which is really good for people with larger pores. I do really have to set this makeup because the consistency can cause the foundation to move a little on the skin. gives the skin a nice healthy finish.
EX1 invisiwear foundation in F400 (lookfantastic.com $16.00). This is the perfect foundation for olive skin tone. It has a beautiful satin finish. It melts flawlessly into the skin. Once it is set with a powder, this foundation doesn’t budge. I wear this almost every time I wear makeup. I could use F300 but since I have the nyx mixer, I don’t have to purchase different shades.
NYX pro foundation mixer in white (9.99 at Ulta, I found mine at a beauty supply store that carry nyx, but you can also fins it at ulta and target) I love to this to mix with my foundations that are currently too dark. This product doesn’t change the texture or finish of you foundation. You can mix it with any cream or liquid product to lighten the shade. This is great because liquid and cream products have a short shelf life, so I like to use them all year long so none goes to waste, and this product allows that. I just mix it on a stainless steel mixing palette and its good to go.
Essence make me brow eyebrow mascara in the color browny brows (Ulta $2.99). Although essence is a very inexpensive brand, the products I have tried from them are really good. I mean what are you losing when you try these products at such a great price. If you don’t like it, give it to a friend. This brow mascara has a tiny wand that really gets into the brows. Also has fibers that helps the brow look fuller without having to over draw them in. I use this to set my brows and also I use it alone on no makeup days.
NYX eyebrow gel in brunette (Ulta $6.99). When you put this on your brown, they will not budge. With this product, a little goes a really long way. I love that it comes in a juicy tube so you don’t have to worry about the product drying out like if it was in a pot, and since you use so little, it will last forever.
NYX HD finishing powder in banana (Ulta $9.99). I love this for my under eye. This brightens under the eye and is so finely milled. I don’t experience any caking with this powder. The banana shade is very pale compared to the Ben Nye banana powder which can be a too yellow if you add too much.
Ulta illuminating powder in yellow diamond (Ulta $10). I love this on its own, on top of a liquid highlighter, and mixed with another powder highlighter. If you want to glow to the Gods, then this is the illuminator for you. You can go from lit from within to lit from space with one powder, all you have to do is keep layering.
Rimmel Maxi bronzer in sun love (walgreens, idk if its discontinued cause I can’t find it anywhere). This is a very effortless everyday bronzer. I just use my fluffy short handle mineral powder brush and just dust it around the perimeter of my face and down the sides of my nose. Beautiful color.
