Empties from November 2016 – March 2017

Here are some of my empties from the recent months!

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural N9 (link goes to my review)

I received this as part of the Sephora birthday gift. I loved this color, and the texture also worked well with my lips.

I wish all lipsticks came in this size!

 

NO7 Dramatic Lift Mascara

I bought this mascara after reading many great reviews, but unfortunately it smudged on me!

 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl eyeliner

I liked this eyeliner pencil, and the color was a little bit lighter than what I usually use.

 

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (link goes to my review)

I really liked this eyeshadow primer! It made my eyeshadow last very well!

Kao Sofina Prima Vista primer (link goes to my review)

This primer is really popular in Japan! It made my foundation last throughout the day, even though it didn’t keep my skin fully matte.

 

L’Oréal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray

I’m so glad that drugstore brands are coming out with setting sprays!

 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche

This is a limited edition perfume that Estee Lauder launches each summer.  I loved this so much that I bought a full size bottle!

Seabreeze Deo + Water Deodorant (link goes to my review)

This is my staple deodorant and I go through it quite frequently!

Lush Yuzu and Cocoa shower gel (link goes to my review)

This is the most recent Lush body wash that I bought.  It is an interesting scent, a mixture of citrus and chocolate.

 

Muji Jojoba oil

I purchased this oil last winter to combat my dry skin. It worked well, but I think I prefer a lighter oil

 

Hope you enjoyed to see my empties!

Monthly Favorites #72: February, 2017

February has been quite a busy month for me! Hopefully I can share the details soon.

On to my favorites!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation (link goes to my review)

I posted about this recently on Instagram! I love how this foundation looks on me, but unfortunately it makes me quite greasy very quickly!

 

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (link goes to my review)

I like to mix the MUFE foundation with this matte foundation from the drugstore.  By itself, this foundation looks too matte – almost dry on me.  It looks much better when I mix it with something dewy!

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (link goes to my review)

I’ve been loving this sea salt spray! I love the price, I love the fine mist, and I think the scent is great too.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my favorites!

Review: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I loved the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation (which I recently used up… finally!), so when I was excited to hear about the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation.  There were so many great reviews online.  Let’s see how it worked for me!

What it does: (from the Sephora website)

Developed specifically for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology, Ultra HD Liquid Foundation creates a naturally flawless complexion—in and out of the spotlight. Invisible under the latest, super-focused 4k lens, this revolutionary foundation features uniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to buildable coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin. This formula leaves your complexion with the same flawless results that you’d achieve with a flat foundation brush in a tap and stretch motion. It contains hyaluronic spheres to ensure comfortable wear on all normal, dry and combination skin types, and it lasts all day, leaving a natural-looking finish. Now available in an expanded range of 40 shades to match all skintones, Ultra HD is the perfect everyday foundation for a flawless complexion—and it doesn’t require touch ups. 

 

Price: $43 for 1.01 oz. For comparison, the MUFE Mat Velvet+ is $39 for the same amount of product.

 

Availability:  Sephora.com says this is an exclusive product.

 

What I thought:

Let’s compare this to the claims, shall we?

  • creates a naturally flawless complexion: Yes, I loved how it looked on my skin! It disappeared into my skin and looked great.
  •  medium to buildable coverageIt did a good job at making my skin look even, but I wouldn’t say it covered my imperfections
  • available in an expanded range of 40 shades: Yes, this is great!
  • doesn’t require touch ups: This is where I don’t agree. Although this product says it works for all skin types, and my skin is not oily in the winter, this product looked shiny on me within a few hours. It also rubbed off very quickly.

Maybe I need to set it with more powder? However, since I really do like how it looks, I have been mixing this with my matte foundations for a natural look.

 

Would I repurchase? Probably not.  Unfortunately, this was a let down for me!

 

Hope you enjoyed this review!

Monthly Favorites #70: December, 2016

I am so behind on my blog posts! Here is a look back at my favorites from December.

 

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

This is an extremely liquidy foundation. I like to use this mixed with my more matte foundations for a natural look over the winter months.

 

NYX Dark Circle Concealer

This is eye opening for me. It doesn’t seem to have much coverage, yet my dark circles are less visible.

 

elf eye crease brush

I use this to apply the NYX concealer, since it is domed shaped and very small.

 

What have you been enjoying this past month?

Monthly Favorites #69: November, 2016

I actually haven’t been wearing a lot of makeup, but I do have a few favorites!

Cover FX Custom Color Drops

I bought this because my skin is darker than it usually is. It is quite difficult to find a range of foundation colors, so I bought this in N70.  I add a tiny drop into my foundation, and it is the perfect color!

Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation (link goes to my review)

Yes, I’ve had this forever.  It hasn’t changed color, it doesn’t smell strange, and it still looks good. I love the squeeze tube and I wish every brand used this packaging!

Sofina Prima Vista primer

This is a best selling primer for the summer. I gave in to the hype at the beginning of the summer and there is still some left. Surprisingly, it still looks good on my skin!
