Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings Review

Too Faced cosmetics was having a sale a while back on their website, and I picked up the beauty blogger darlings set. I was mainly interested in the better than sex mascara, but I didn’t mind trying out the other three products. The one thing I loved so much about this purchase was the packaging of the whole products. It came in a pink box, and when you opened it, there was a message on the inner part of the box, shredded pink packaging paper, and…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review: Cannes

I am very late to this game, but better late than never! I finally got my hands on the much talked about NYX soft matte lip cream in #19 Cannes It is a pinky nude color with a soft application. It’s not a liquid lipstick and it’s not a lip gloss. I feel like it’s more like lip pigments being applied to your lips. Unlike liquid lipsticks that go on matte and stay put, this does smudge and transfer if you touch it. It does have…

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.…

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…

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…

SPOOLEY The spooley is your best…
