Sleek Contour Kit Review: Dark

Sleek Contour Kit in Dark: Because one can never have too many highlighting powders. It retails for $9.99 with $2 shipping from the U.K. It’s actually smaller than I thought it would be. It’s dimensions are similar to a credit card’s dimensions. The contour powder is a matte deep brown that doesn’t have any orange undertones, and the highlighter is a lovely golden color. It’s not specifically yellow or rose gold, it’s just golden. On the left, the highlighter, and the contour powder is on the right.…

Wow wow wow. This palette is everything and then some. I stumbled upon it on Sephora’s website as I was browsing around and wow wow wow. It has a very sleek package that resembles leather.

Everyday Brown Lip

At any given point of the day, I guarantee you that these two lips products will be on my lips. I have been enjoying rocking a simple brown lip combo lately and I finally have the perfect products to do so. For lipstick, I use Milani’s Double Espresso, and on top of that I add NYX Butter Gloss in Ginger Snap. Milani lipstick is $6 and NYX Butter Gloss is $5. Both can be bought at the respective online retailers. Double Espresso is a rich…

Get Smooth Skin: Bentonite Clay Mask Review

I’d first like to thank my friend, Ida, for changing my life by introducing me to this product! I got this jar of bentonite clay about two years ago for $12 off of Amazon. I didn’t really use it that much when I first got it. But then about a month ago, I said yolo, and the rest is history. The clay is a very fine greenish gray powder. To make the mask, you’ll need a plastic bag, a spoon, and a cap of water~1 tablespoon…

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme Review: Crush

Milani, mi amor, you have done it again. This liquid lipstick has quickly become my favorite thing to wear. From the color, to the texture, to the packaging, to the price. It was love at first site. The formula is oh so velvety and soft. It glides onto my lips like purified butter (if that even exists) and it dries to a very smooth matte finish. And it last all day, night, and second day. The first day I got it, I did a swatch…

Mauve Over

In continuation of my neutral nail polish run, I picked up this $2 Mauve Over from Sally Hansen while I was in Target. It’s a pinky mauve color that’s neutral enough to go with a plethora of things. The formula dries instantly and it lasts for one week before it begins to chip, as long as you use two coats of color and apply a top coat to seal it. M

Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer Review

While perusing through Sephora’s website, looking for the extra $15 to get me to $50 free shipping, I stumbled upon this gem. I have been a faithful lover of my L.A. Girl ProConceal concealers since I started using them four years ago. My only caveat with them is that they don’t last the whole day. Alas, I found a concealer that does just that! (For more $ though). One thing I absolutely despise about this concealer has to do with the packaging. The concealer only…

Get Fleeky Eyebrows

Eyebrows. Las Cejas. El hefe de la cara. These bad boys have framed my eyes as I stared down rude people, look happy for great news, create embarassing faces at my crushes, and of course, when people are acting crazy, I can slay them with my #arch.  Although this technique may not work for everyone, I’m going to show you how I take my brows from sparcelandia to fleeklandia.  First, some essential tools: Let’s recap why each of these tools are essential. SPOOLEY The spooley is your best…
