It Cosmetics Matte CC Cream

I was so curious to see how this It Cosmetics CC Cream Foundation and the Your Skin But Better™ CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder™ with SPF 50+ would look on my skin that of course I had to buy it. I will say I am very impressed with this foundation.  This foundation has a very moisturizing feel to it. I don’t think this is completely matte but it has a silky finish. This is a full coverage foundation but it still has that natural look to it. The powder is amazing. It makes your face look flawless on top of the liquid foundation. Below are some picture of my before and after. I apologize about my eyebrows they are currently trying to regrow lol.

My after picture is with nothing on my face except the foundation and powder. I feel like this foundation is ideal for someone who is looking to look put together in a quick amount of time. This will definitely be my go to foundation for days that I am in a hurry and don’t have a lot of time on my hands to get ready. I give this foundation a 10/10. If you have any foundations you would like for me to review let me know!

TARTE Foil Finger Paints Palette Review

I love makeup and I especially love purchasing and trying out new makeup products. I was at Sephora the other day and I just fell in love with the TARTE Foil Finger Paints Shadow Palette – Rainforest of the Sea Collection $39.00.

Look at the packaging and the colors are just to die for! I love that they are all wearable colors. They are so easy to work with and they are so creamy! I probably own over 20 eyeshadow palettes and this one has been my go to palette lately.

In the swatches you can tell how creamy the eyeshadow look! These eyeshadows work best applying them with your fingers. I will say that is my only negative. I am a bit weird about using my fingers to apply makeup but these eyeshadows are so good that I am willing to make an exception.

 

The packaging is so beautiful I really hope that Tarte comes out with more products with the same packaging! The three bigger foil finger paints are more of an eyeshadow consistency the two smaller ones feel like glitter.

IMG_2114I am wearing the lightest color in the palette which is called Gold Coast. I feel like this is a very neutral natural color for everyday use. I find it to be completely appropriate for work or school.

IMG_2115.jpgI am by no means a makeup artist but overall this is a must buy eyeshadow palette. The quality is there and I truly feel like the price is very reasonable at $39.00.

Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15 Review

I was at Sephora the other day and I noticed that Bobbi Brown had came out with a new foundation and of course I had to buy it! I wanted to do a review on this new foundation and give you my honest thoughts on it. This foundation claims to last 16 hours and to have a lightweight matte finish. It runs at $46 which makes it a high end foundation. My expectations are higher I will not lie due to the price tag! Like I said you can find it at Sephora.

I like to make sure that before I apply any foundation I have a clean canvas and I make sure that I follow my skin care routine. I also have to apply primer before wearing any foundation. Right now my favorite primer is Makeup Forever Hydrating Primer. I have combination skin but since it has been colder my skin tends to be on the dryer side. I love applying my foundation with a damp beauty blender I just feel like coverage is a lot better when I do so. When I do decide to use a brush I like using a flat head kabuki brush.

This is my picture with no makeup on!

My first impression of the foundation is the smell is strong. The coverage is good and I would say it is full coverage but buildable. It feels lightweight and has creamy consistency. If you look closely at the pictures its a very matte foundation. The pictures below have no filters and I feel like my skin looks pretty flawless. I do set my face with the SEPHORA MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder with every single foundation that I use so I wanted to do the same thing with this new foundation. I will do a wear test as part of my final thoughts as well.

 

So this is me after using this foundation all day! I used it from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. which is over 12 hours. I work at an office job but I do go out and about all day and I truly feel like the foundation still looks really good. I did not touch up all day but to be honest I usually tend not to touch up my face! Overall I love the foundation I do wish the smell didn’t have that perfume smell but it’s a great long wearing foundation that I truly feel works well with my combination skin. If you are looking for a “natural” finish I would not recommend this but if you are looking for a high coverage foundation this is a good option for you. This foundation is definitely a keeper for me!
