Beauty Product Reviews
Beautiful Coverage and Feel
I actually bought this foundation on a whim with no prior research or knowledge on it (BAD Hannah) but it actually turned out to be a gorgeous product. That's really not a surprise to me as BECCA has become one of by favorite brands for that very reason. I have oily skin so that's always a concern when purchasing a new foundation, but I can confidentially say this wears VERY well and looks great even at the end of the day. I like to apply it with a brush first and then blend it into the skin with my damp Real Techniques sponge, and then just add a little extra on my problem areas where I want more coverage. I have to use a primer but that's something I have to do with every foundation, regardless. I highly recommend this one!
This is probably my all time favorite foundation. It's a favorite of some of the biggest MUAs in the business.
People who say it's a watery mess or is terrible just don't know how to use it. Yes, it's quite watery as it's a WATER based foundation because it's meant to be used on the face AND the body. However, it's transfer resistant once it sets so it doesn't move once applied. Now, if you are a full coverage foundation fan, this one is not for you for obvious reasons. This is great for those who love really sheer coverage in the summer when you've got a some color and just want something light.
This also photographs beautifully. Combine this with MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in your shade with their duo-fibre brush to set ...you can conquer the WORLD with that combo. Just trust me.
This Stuff is UNREAL
This stuff blows me away.
It feels and wears like a luxury product. It's super finely milled, melts into the skin, and doesn't leave a powdery, chalky layer on top of your foundation. It's been compared to the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder as a much more affordable replacement.
It's a dream with a $6 price tag!
Get it. Get it now, and save yourself a whole lot of money.
I grabbed this concealer when I was in Ulta purchasing my True Match LUMI foundation, and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised with how great this stuff is.
Coverage is AMAZING and covers everything you want covered without looking cakey. I even use this for my under eyes and it doesn't accentuate any fine lines or dryness.
The technique (if you can even call it that :-P) that I like to use when using it is to apply the product to the spot/(s) you want to conceal and then I let it sit for like a good 30 to 45 seconds, then go back to it with my beauty blender and blend it in. When I do that it makes for so much better coverage then if I just blended it out immediately.
I'm crazy for this stuff. And even better it's in the True Match family just like my LUMI foundation!
Best Drugstore Foundation I Have Ever Owned
I am a LOYAL supporter of True Match LUMI foundation. It's drugstore but it doesn't FEEL drugstore, if that makes sense. I have oily skin and it even works for me.
It blends beautifully and photographs beautifully despite the fact it has SPF in it, which is a huge plus! It means you can pretty much wear this stuff to any occasion and not have to worry about pictures. The coverage can be sheer, but is build-able to a good medium coverage. I'd even be as bold to say this would be great for even older/more mature skin, regardless of skin type.
If you're in search of a good foundation that you can pick up while you're doing your grocery shopping, lol, give this one a try!
This has literally been a mascara savior for me. I have very oily skin, so everything I ever wore before I found this smeared, and smudged and ran ALL OVER my face. I couldn't get anything to stay. Needless to say, for a makeup lover like me, it was a tragic situation. So, when I found this I was over the moon!
What makes this mascara different is that it's a tubing formula. It literally grabs onto each lash and builds the product adding more volume each time you apply a new coat. When you wash it off it comes off in small lash-like pieces or little "tubes" of mascara. That's what keeps this product from smearing off like others do.
It's dang good and I don't think it gets enough love. Unfortunately MAC's mascaras have never really had a great reputation and sadly, I think this one also gets lumped into that category.
I use this bronzer on a daily basis because it's so easy to use! It's so perfectly matte (just as every bronzer should be!) and is great at faking a little extra sun.
I only wish it were a little more velvety, as it's a bit powdery. Still great application and color pay off none-the-less!
I highly recommend!
THIS. THIS. THIS.
Where do I start with this perfume?! It's the most gorgeous scent I've ever come across. You hear Flowerbomb and you think, "great, a grandma flower perfume"
Um no, this ain't your grandma's perfume, Honey. It's such a full bodies floral fragrance. It's got a bit of warmth in it (thanks to the patchouli in the bottom notes) which helps to add a bit of sexiness so that it's not sickly sweet.
I highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful fragrance.
The Product That Got Me Hooked
Underage Lipglass is the first product I ever purchased from MAC. I remember the saleswoman telling me it was Paris Hilton's favorite color. Once I heard that I was sold. Remember, I was probably only 14 at the time so cut me some slack. :)
Seriously though. I forget how much I love these until I pick one up to use it and I'm reminded just how awesome they are. Some people complain about them being sticky, but I personally like it. It makes the wear-ability much longer.
If there's one thing you can't go wrong in purchasing, it's a lipglass.
MAC's lipstick is NOTHING short of iconic in the makeup world. There isn't a color that's not amazing in their range, and there's literally something for everyone.
I have an extensive collection of MAC lipsticks that I've been hoarding for years and I always want more.
