So some of these are products i’ve tried before and loved (Too Faced mascara, Rosebud lip balm, and Real Techniques sponges) so I just needed to re-up lol. But some of these products are new to me so i’m gonna give a review of a few of those!
BH Cosmetics ItsMyRayeRaye Palette: Ok so I like this palette! I had been wanting this palette for a while now and it was on sale for $15 so I figured this was perfect timing. So the colors are pigmented which is great! and I think this is the perfect palette to pick up if your going for a quick simple look. The highlighters give a good amount of bling without doing too much lol. I normally don’t use powder contour so I didn’t really buy the palette for that feature but if you like powder contour then even better! lol. So overall this palette is good but I don’t see it becoming one of my favs 🤷🏽♀️
Morphe x Bretman Highlighter Palette: So I think this palette is great! There are six different highlighters so there’s a good variety and I think the shades can work for multiple skin tones! I can easily see this palette becoming one of my favs. The glow is real with this palette and it’s most likely gonna be the first thing I pick up when using highlighter this summer! ✨
Real Techniques Eye Shade + Blend Duo Pack: Ok so i’ve tried real techniques sponges before and I love them so I thought I would give their brushes a try and I wasn’t disappointed. These brushes picked up the eyeshadow really easily and it was super easy to apply and blend! These will definitely be some of my go to brushes for doing my eyeshadow from now on! I recommend getting these.
Smashbox X-Rated Mascara: Ok so let me tell yall about this mascara! So my favorite mascara is Too Faced Better Than Sex and I haven’t really been to impressed by other mascaras that i’ve tried until now! This Smashbox mascara I LOVE it!! 🙌🏽 I saw a good difference in my lashes with one coat of mascara. My lashes were longer and more defined. I think I just found a new go to mascara! 10/10 recommend!
Items I bought
- Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter
- Real Techniques Expert face brush
- Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
- Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter: So I got this highlighter because I’m a highlighter fanatic! It’s not like I need anymore but I’m always trying different ones to see how it looks on brown skin. I love this highlighter for me, it’s in the color topaz! It gives me a golden bronze look! Like drake said “Gold no spray tans!” I honestly love it for woc! I plan to also use this on my chest area when I travel and wear off the shoulder tops etc. I’m sure it’ll have me glowinggggg!
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush: Now real techniques are some good brushes for a pretty decent price! They last long and are good quality. Now for this specific brush I use it to apply foundation and also blend my concealer! &I must say it does a bomb job with going on smoothly and blending properly! Love this brush! And this brand!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: So this concealer has been on the market for a while, and I always see reviews on YouTube that it’s so bomb and a goto for everyone and when I say everyone I mean E V E R Y O N E!! No matter if you’re dry, oily, or combo skin! It’s very light weight but is a full coverage concealer. I’m not sure how! But huntyyyyy when I use this concealer to cover my dark spots and the bags I get when I don’t get much sleep it does such a great job at hiding it but it feels like nothing on my face! This concealer and my Mac mineralized skin finish powder has literally been my goto for the summer!
Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Primer: Lastly I got this primer! Which first off I really do like. I think it’ll be amazing for dry skin, but it has also been amazing for my oily skin. It makes my skin look radiant and blends my makeup flawlessly. It does not at all control my oil but the look it gives when I wear make up. Now if it could help my oil I would love it even more, but I guess the good thing is it doesn’t make it any worse!
We hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as we enjoyed making it for you guys! Comment down below if you’ve tried any of these products before and how you feel about them! Until next time …
