Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

The Sensual Skin Enhancer by Kevyn Aucoin ($48 retail | $28.80 pro) is a staple among many makeup artists because of its versatility. It can be sheered out to a tinted moisturizer, or built up to be full coverage while still looking natural; it can also be used as a concealer. This tiny little jar packs a huge punch.

Beauty Haul and Mini Review!

IMATS happened in Los Angeles recently and it was crazy. The first and last time I went was in 2015. I didn't get to attend or work in 2016, but I worked at The Makeup Show and PHAMExpo, which were pretty cool too. I was excited to work this year because I got to bring my friend and assistant Ashely, who has never been to a makeup trade show. I wanted to show her ALL THE THINGS. I was also excited because I wanted to get specific things for my kit that I don't want to get online, like brushes. I'm extremely picky with brushes, so I have to touch and feel them before buying. Nothing is worse than ordering brushes online and finding out it's not what you expected.

Updated NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review

Updated NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review

Have you ever bought something, tried it, loved it, then hated it, put it away for a few months, tried it again, and then fell in love with it? Because I'm like that with ALL of my products. I first tried the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (jeez could they choose a longer name) back in March last year and I hated it. I gave it another try in January and hated it. For the past 2-3 months, I've been using it again and I freaking love it! I decided to give it another chance because I didn't want my bottle to go to waste and I fell in love with it  (not just because I'm a hardcore NARSissist). I made some MAJOR skin care changes and I think that's why I like this foundation so much now.

Viseart 01, 04, & 05 Eyeshadow Palettes Review

Viseart 01, 04, & 05 Eyeshadow Palettes Review

After a year of seeing and hearing people rave about the Viseart eyeshadow palettes, I had to try it for myself. While I was in Chicago, I was staying with my friend Sophia and she let me use it on her and I was blown away. The pigmentation and blendability (is that even a word) are absolutely amazing. And dare I say, these are the best eyeshadows on the market right now.

Dior Nude Air Glowing Gardens Illuminating Powder Review & Swatches

Dior Nude Air Glowing Gardens Illuminating Powder Review & Swatches

This is my first time purchasing a luxury product for myself and I do not regret it at all. Dior's latest collection for spring 2016, named Glowing Gardens, contains pastel colored eye shadows and nail polish, which didn't really catch my eye. Of course, I was drawn to this beautiful powder instead. The compact itself is reflective silver (meaning it will get fingerprinty) and it has a quilted design. All of the Dior Nude Air powders have the exact same packaging. The powder inside is breathtaking. It has the word "NUDE" embossed as well as flowers in the back. It's just too pretty to use.
