Beauty Product Reviews

Foundation Junkie

So before I get started I have at least 8 foundations on my counter for personal use. I also have 6 concealers.

Danessa Myricks Vision Cream Cover is my rehabilitation. Once I do my skincare routine I have so many options using the product. Once I use her refining get, I can use it alone. And I am happy.

Yet, my favorite way to use Vision Cream Cover is to blend (a bead, not full pump) with a drop of DM Beauty Oil. I can use it under my eyes and it's flawless.

I usually get compliments on my makeup. Not anymore, now people are saying, "Your skin is so beautiful." They can't tell it's a foundation, and Enlight Powder and Evolution Powder.....

A little bit goes a loooooooong way and wears all day. I wear Fenty 385. I'm actually about to fill up my cart with more Danessa Myricks goodies.

Monochromatic & All Day

ColorFix is a medium you can use eyes, cheeks, lips and pretty anywhere you allow your imagination to take you. Great for an easy to achieve monochromatic look.

I used ColorFix on my eyes and lips and it didn't budge for 10 hours. I wash it off easily before going to bed.

Warning: a little goes a long, long way.

Danessa Myricks has become my favorite brand ahead of Surratt & Pat McGrath.

Waterproof doesn't move

Usually I'm not a big fan of cushion products. Yet, this eyeliner has become my new favorite whether a natural thin line or full on wings. Once applied it doesn't move, easy to apply with my Wayne Goss brush. I like the idea of the cushion as I find it seems like I am only removing the amount of product I need for my application.

I also purchased Cloud Control and Night Walk. I am in love with this line from the liners to the ColorFix to the Enlight Powders to the foundations. Let me stop, I'm a little obsessive.

Best Eye Gloss EVER EVAH

I've always wanted to try the glossy look. Due to oily eye lids and now at 50 years old, I thought, "Girl give it up!"

I have so much admiration for Surratt that I said, "Give the lid lacquer a try!"

So glad I did:

1. It is not sticky. 2. It stayed on for 10 hours plus. 3. It is not sticky. 4. I receive compliments every time I wear it. 5. Crazy easy to apply, literally 2 minutes or less. 6.It is not sticky. I blink or wink and I don't feel it!

As you can tell it being sticky was a major concern of mine. And I had no need to worry...

I NEED more colors, can't go wrong with black though!

Warm Fun Scent

I brought this as part of a Mother's Day gift for my mommy! She really loves the scent. She claims it drives the deacons crazy at church. Yes, my mother thinks she most wanted next to Beyonce.

I've been a fan of Sol De Janeiro products due to the richness of the cupuacu butter in the Bum Bum (pronounced Boom Boom) cream. The cream shares the same scent of pistacio, caramel, vanilla.

It makes my mother feels good wearing it. Anything that makes my grateful (yet picky) mommy happy is 5 star for me. She also loves the lip moisturizer from this line.

For the LOVE of Makeup

I've had my eye on this book for quite sometime. Once I was ready to pull the trigger, Beautylish was out of stock.

I panicked.

I started googling to see where I good buy it. Then I said to myself, "Beautylish restocks give them some time."

The Rae Morris Makeup Masterclass is everything I hoped it would be and more. It truly is a beautiful textbook of the MUA's expert knowledge and talent.

I also appreciate her sharing the tools she uses to achieve various looks. Yes it's her brushes and why shouldn't it be when those are the tools she uses. It doesn't mean you have to buy or use them. You have the option and information to do so or use other tools that are similar.

I have Sam Fine, Bobbi Brown, Reggie Wells, Kevyn Aucoin and other books from the pros. Rae Morris Makeup Masterclass is by far my favorite out of my collection of trade books. Every turn of the page I am filled with excitement.

I am thinking about buying additional copies as gifts for a young MUA I mentor, my daughter and another dear friend. It's that awesome!!!

Favorite Gel

I have coarse hair. I love using this gel for updos, twists, braiding or for smoothing my edges overnight with a head scarf.

Rain or shine it keeps my hairstyle choose of the day in place!

An added bonus is my teenagers have different hair types and it works great for their hair types too!

Perfect Lip Balm

Winter has been sucking the life out of my lips. They have been dry, chapped and difficult to soothe. My normal go to are the Fresh Sugar lip tints and balms. Yet, they haven't been able to soothe my dry lips for more than 20 minutes, as of late. And I don't want to repeatedly reapply lip balm throughout the day.

I have a new favorite lip treatment. I winced at the $35 price point; then decided to give it a try as my lips were on the verge of cracking. I am not disappointed with my decision. From the moment I applied my lips felt relief. Due to the density and weight of the lip balm a little went a looooong way and it adhered to my lips. I apply twice a day. Thanks to Mary's review I think I might add it to my night routine before bed.

Oribe Balmessence Lip Treatment was a great buy and a welcomed addition to my beauty routine and a treat for my lips.

Great Tray

I purchase this tray because it was just to pretty to resist.

It is small. However, all that means is I need to buy another one. Great quality!

Favorite brush

I love WG's The Airbrush; I use it with a colored pressed powder to effortlessly give myself an airbrush look.

Without fail everyday I use this brush, people compliment me all day about my makeup. Some don't even realize I am wearing foundation.
