Beauty Product Reviews
eh, could be better.
I purchased this brush set about a year ago & since day one the face brushes have all shed tremendously. Even after multiple washes & using the Sigma brush drying system (among other drying methods). I really like the eye brushes but for the cash you are spending on this set, you would think you would be getting better quality. I originally purchased this for my personal use but now it's being used in my freelance kit. I really wanted to like Sigma but the brand is not all it's hyped up to be. Their prices are getting close to MAC brush prices, so you might as well spend the extra cash & get those.
the best concealer!
I purchased this concealer because I was currently using the Pro Long Wear Foundation, & needed something more to cover my under eye circles & some broken blood vessels I have on my cheeks. This little baby did that & much much more. It's very light on the skin but very opaque, which is exactly what I wanted. It doesn't crease under the eye & covers just about everything imaginable. The staying power is yet again amazing! It lasts all day with out having to check your face constantly. I use shade NC30, and for my foundation I am NC25. It blends beautifully. This will be my favorite concealer for years to come!
love this foundation!
This foundation is my "go-to" winter foundation. My face gets very dry living in Arizona in the winter & this product keeps my skin feeling hydrated & soft all day long. Doesn't feel cakey at all. I set this foundation with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (medium) & I'm good to go!
Was not expecting to love this brush as much as I do. I bought it 2 weeks ago & tonight was the first night I tried it. Literally took me 30 seconds to apply my foundation. And it looks flawless. It evenly distributed product & no product was left on the brush after. This is my new favorite brush. I will definitely be buying a few more for my clients.
Favorite Gel Liner
I've been using Fluidline for years. It's staying power is amazing. The one I use in my personal kit has lasted me forever with out drying out. I use it on my lids as well as my waterline. One tip I have is if your fluidline does start to dry out, spray a little Fix+ in there & mix it up! Works like a charm!
My "go-to" powder...
MAC MSF Natural is my go-to powder for myself & my clients. Buffed into the skin on it's own provides a very natural/matte coverage. Over your favorite foundation it looks flawless, but very natural. I love using this on my bridal clients, the baked minerals soak up any oil/sweat & help with the camera flash. Would & do recommend this to everyone.
best of the Hypnose collection!
I've been using Hypnose mascara for years. I mainly stuck to the original but last year tried Hypnose Drama & Doll Lashes. Drama is too clumpy & the brush is a pain. Doll Lashes is just blah. It flakes off with in minutes. But when Sephora gave me a sample of Star I fell in love. The brush coats every lash & separates them with out making them look spikey. I have very long full lashes & this mascara just makes them look fake. Which I love. I always get compliments on my lashes & I will always recommend Lancôme :)
