    Nars Duo Eyeshadow

    A bit overpriced...

    I purchased Eurydice, so when I tested the colors at Sephora, I really liked the pigmentation and the color, it seem to be a pretty purple color with a blue reflect and the deep gray/chrome color. Now when I got home to try it out, I realized that these shadows have massive fall out, I used a flat shader brush to pack on the color and there was massive fall out. I was wearing the NARS eye primer, but the fall out was too much for my liking. I tried it with different primers and I seem to experience the same outcome. I tried different brushes and techniques and the same outcome, finally I gave up on this product and I returned to sephora. I believe that for the quality of this experience, this product is completely overpriced !

    Beautyblender Blender Cleanser

    Great Cleanser !! for BB and Brushes

    I purchased a two-pack BB and this cleanser came as a bundle. I have to say I really like this product. I like the smell, its not a harsh smell. I like that it gently and deeply removes resude on my most stubborn brushes. I like the fact that the bristles feel so soft after using this cleanser. I have the trust that I can clean my BBs in between clients. I do like this product, have recommended to friends.

  • Beautyblender Sponge

    Beautyblender Sponge

    The best sponge I will ever use !!

    I have been a fan of this sponge since my first encounter. I loveeeeeeeeee it, I use it often to put my foundation, concealer, cream blush and to highlight and contour. I even purchased a few to use for my clients and they love it so much they offer to purchase the sponge. I now keep extras, and tend to give them to my loyal clients. This is a great buy, you have to use it damp, and I tend to place some foundation throughout the face and then bounce to a seeming less finish. I don't like dipping my sponge directly into the foundation; I see that when I have done that, it tends to absorb a lot more of the product. This are a great purchase for any MUA, I highly recommend this product.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express Falsies Flared Washable

    I really like this mascara, and believe me I am picky when it comes to mascaras. I liked the length and the volume it gave my lashes and I really love the spoon shaped brush, I can literally grasp my lashes and in two strokes they are good to go. I do tend to overlay when doing a dramatic eye and it does not clump.

    MAC Wipes

    Wipes me Clean!

    I love these wipes! Ever since I tried them out I decided to put the extra $ to continue buying these wipes. Thankfully I did not have to put the extra $ for long since I received my Pro Discount. Nevertheless, it is a good item, it is tough on the makeup but gentle on the skin and it does not leave my face feeling oily or soap-y. I carry these on my kit all of the time and people tend to grow fond of these wipes, some of my usuals will even notice if I ran out and I am using other wipes lol. I do recommend, again it depends on your budget, but when it comes to makeup removal, I think it is worth it!

  • Nars Lipstick

    Nars Lipstick

    Good Lip color and pigmentation, A bit pricey!

    Love these lipsticks, they are highly pigmented and the color variety is pretty good. They are quite creamy and smooth. The only down side is that these are a bit pricey for the younger makeup lovers, $22 a piece with less product than other top brand lipsticks.

  • Ardell Duralash Naturals Combo Pack

    I have used this lashes several times on clients, I have not had any problems with this product. I do tend to use another glue so maybe that is the reason. I like to alternate the length in order to give a fuller lash yet natural. A good alternative when I am out of my go to lashes.

  • Stila Eye Shadow Pan

    Stila Eye Shadow Pan

    Great pigmentation!

    I tend to use this wearing a primer and believe me it lasts all day ! I am combination / oily skin and my lids do not stay behind, so this product actually passed my test. I tend to test products to the max, I like to make sure that I will be willing to purchase this product once again and not purchase due to new collections or due to sales. I do like the shadows, I think they are greatly pigmented, yet they are a bit powder-y, what do I mean? You may experience fall-out when applying with a blending/fluffy brush. Good product but not sure about price, they are a bit expensive compared to other high end products, but then again you do get more product than most other high end brands, so it will come down to buying it or not.

    Mac Matte Lipsticks! Great Pigmentation!!

    I am a huge fan of MAC's Lipsticks in Matte Finish! If you are looking for lipsticks that can be long-wearing try the matte finish, these are great!! I have tested this lip colors to the max in humid and rainy conditions and truth of the matter is that they are quite good! These are highly pigmented (for the most part) and go quite smoothly in moisturized lips. I tend to use this during spring/summer when the weather is quite humid. I enjoy this finish because if applied correctly they can last hours without reapplying! Now for the winter/fall season I tend to use cremesheen or the lustre finish since they are more hydrating to the lips and will help avoid dry lips :)

    MAC Face and Body

    A light alternative, A natural chick's summer must have!

    This product provides a light sheer coverage, I recommend this product for any one who would like a bit of glow on their skin and minimal coverage. This is perfect for my natural beauties! I would not recommend for ladies with combination or oily skin, the fact of the matter is that this will definitely wear down and if you are looking to cover some imperfections, unless minimal, this is not the best foundation for you. I have test this product to the max ! even airbrushed, but again, this product provides a good healthy sheer to the skin, with light coverage. Although you may be able to build, I do not recommend to my oily beau's, this will provide more shine to your skin then desired.
