Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder

I’ve heard amazing things about Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder. So, when shopping in my local CVS recently, I came across a few limited edition versions in the shades Lilac to Reality and The Sweetest Bling. I’m not sure how new these are, but for $4.99, I thought it would be interesting to compare to higher-end highlighters in my collection. For more info, please continue reading.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer Review

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect bronzer. A bronzer that is smooth, creamy, goes on 100% matte, and make me feel like Linda Evangelista in the early 90’s. I picked up the Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer while at Sephora the other day after hearing positive reviews from the Pixiwoo sisters, Sam and Nic. They are also the creators of Real Techniques makeup products, so when they recommend something I’m all ears. While I still don’t look or feel like Linda, I still really like the product. Keep reading for details. Continue reading “Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer Review”

L.A. Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation Review

After mostly rave reviews on Youtube, I enthusiastically ordered the L.A. Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation from For $7.92, the brand claims 8-hour wear time, luminous finish, paraben-free formula, and medium to full coverage. Nearly 1 month has gone by since this first arrived at my doorstep and I finally have a definitive opinion on this foundation. Continue reading “L.A. Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation Review”

Buxom Eyeshadow Review

Buxom eyeshadows, where have you been all my life? I first came across this brand several years ago at my local Sephora, but never picked anything up from them and never really gave them a second look, at least until now. A quick store swatch and $100 later, I have in my possession (what I deem) some of the best quality shadows on the market. Primer-infused, highly pigmented, and totally worth the $12 a piece price tag. Continue reading this Buxom Eyeshadow Review. Continue reading “Buxom Eyeshadow Review”

Wet n Wild Makeup Stick Blush Review

Today, I picked up 2 Wet n Wild Makeup Stick Blush shades for $3.99 at Walgreens. One is a shimmer, peachy shade called Peach Bums, and the other is a mauve, pink shade called Floral Majority. I love the names. When I got home and first swatched these out on my hand, let me tell you – I was shaken to my core! They are beautiful! Great colors, great texture, great formula, utter perfection…and then I looked down at my hands. I’m dead. Continue reading “Wet n Wild Makeup Stick Blush Review”

E.L.F. Natural Glow Face Palette Review

It seems E.L.F. has come out with a ton of new products lately! Every time I go to the drugstore there is something interesting that I want to try. I just reviewed their new Molten Liquid Eyeshadows a few days ago and couldn’t have been happier with the results. This palette retails for $8 at Walmart and provides 4 separate shades.  Continue reading “E.L.F. Natural Glow Face Palette Review”
