Kelsey H.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I have incredibly oily skin and I'm going through a New York super hot and humid summer- and with my routine, this works amazing for me.
It looks incredibly natural and covers all muh bad stuff, without looking cakey.
Like I said- I have oily skin. Not just t-zone, but mainly my cheeks. I do a sweep of milk of magnesia, and a primer (too faced primed and poreless, the white tube) and then layer this over and set it with a spray and a powder. And maybe if you're somewhere cooler and less humid, it'll work fine without those things.
It's a lot, yes, but I have to do this even with my MUFE mat velvet +. Both foundations hold wonderfully. I do still have to blot somewhere later in the day, but the way this foundation wears, it doesn't look oily or gross, just not as matte as I'd like it to.
Oooooh man. Ooooh inglot.
I have the luck to live in San Francisco, and we have an inglot store in the Macy's downtown. It's. So. Wonderful.
Their products are amazing, and amazingly priced. I'm working on my second 10 palette, and it's so much fun to piece them together.
LOOOOVE Inglot!!! High quality for such a fair price.
I have peach parfait.
And it's so nice to have. Adds such a pretty color, but not overwhelming so I can use it with just about every look to add a pretty, subtle something.
Little pricey for a drugstore lipstick, but it should go on sale pretty frequently so I'd recommend doing that so at least you can do a buy one get one half off deal or something.
How I love the Naked 2 palette. I'm in a long distance relationship and I travel all the time. I'm also incredibly impatient and hate having to wait at baggage claim, so I need to make sure that I'm smart about everything I pack. Thank you Urban Decay. I never travel without it. The black can even be smudged on with a liner brush, so I don't have to worry about packing a liner.
But let's be honest. Even if I wasn't traveling all the time, I'd still have this, and I use it just about every day. Pure magic.
I have the angled kabuki and the round top kabuki.
My make-up application has never looked better. I use a dampened angled top to apply my foundation and it looks amaaaazing. Seriously amazing. Covers so well with minimal foundation.
I used the round top kabuki to blend in my concealer. My foundation has never looked as flawless.
Highly highly recommend. Amazing product and amazing prices.
I guess the thing that disappointed me was the hype. That mixed with not knowing my own skin type well enough to pick a decent blush for it kind of resulted in a bunch of money sadly wasted.
I have large pores, and based off of practically everyone on the planet's recommendation of orgasm, I tried it out.
Except it was waaaaay too glittery, the description online didn't match the color at all, it was weirdly pigmented, and looked awful and streaky, and I looked like a hot mess.
More just like a mess.
Ladies, if you have large pores, maybe try out another matte shade from this company and skip orgasm.
I have the Summer Fruit one, and it smells sooooo good!
As far as my make-up collection ranges, I've always been a fan of lipsmackers watermelon. The only other thing that has swayed me as much as my beloved watermelon lipsmackers would be the EOS.
Super moisturizing and smells so good. Only thing is there's not a shine factor that goes along with it, but since it's so good to my lips, I don't even care anymore. Perfect for a base, or to put on as you start your makeup so your lips are super soft and moisturized by the time you get around to that part of your routine.
Not only do I have incredibly oily lids, I also have incredibly sensitive skin. To the point where if I remove my make-up with a cloth at night, I absolutely HAVE to rinse my face off or the remover from the wipe will turn my lids red and I look rabid.
I'm sorry, it's gross, but for the sake of the review, it should be said.
TFSI keeps my make-up on ALL day. And I'm going from foggy and rainy San Francisco to sauna humid New York summers. Does. Not. Budge.
AND, unlike other primers and eye products, it doesn't sting my eyes.
It's a mainstay in my make-up bag and I highly recommend it.
