Lancome Face Primer Review

  • La Base ProYes, I know some of you heard that i wont be posting for a week or so. But, I couldn't resist I just had to write this review. So, the product that I'm going to rave about today is the Lancome Face Primer, and I have no idea how I lived this long without this amazing product. Face primer was introduced to me by one of my favorite youtube video makers vintageandtacky. I never really paid attention to face primers but wow do they make a difference. I found a little sample of the Lancome in one of my drawers and after hearing only good things about face primers I decided to try.

  • I absolutely love it, the foundation stays on all day and doesn't look streaking which I know can sometimes happen. I also love the feeling of the primer when it is applied to the skin. It starts out as a liquid gel and once applied to your face it becomes almost a powder. It keeps my make up lasting all day and I don't feel like I need to reapply it throughout the day, which in my book is a great thing.Also, it gives my face a satin finish.

Physicans Formula Rx Circle Control Concealer Review

  • Go to fullsize imageGo to fullsize imageWOW. This little beauty does the trick. I have tried out different concealers for under the eye circles but, have never found one that works wonders like this one. I would give this an 11/10. The formula is very gentle and it has almost a organic leaf smell.When you have dark circles under your eyes, this just makes them disappear. What I love most about this concealer is that when you apply to your face it just gives your face a nice glow. You look really awake and it makes the color of your eyes stand out more. The Circles under your eyes are completely covered. Another thing that makes me love this product is that after a few times of use your dark circles get smaller to eventually 90% disappear . This product contains Haloxyl which reduces the darkness under your eyes. This concealer costs $9. But, is defiantly worth the money. You can purchase it at stores such as Target,Sears,CVS,Rite Aid or online at http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/productdetail/face/concealers/02725.html

Liquid Eyeliner for Beginners:)

When I first started wearing make up the one product that intimidated me the most was liquid eyeliner. But, I felt that being a make up junkie I had to have a couple in my collection. I rememeber the first liquid eyeliner I purchased was from wet n wild, and soon decided to try ELF and NYC, because the prices were so similar. They were around 1 or 2 dollars. But, when I went to apply it, firstly I had no idea what I was doing.I found that the burshes that didn't have a felt tip were really hard to control and the line that they made weren't straight.

Now that I have been using make up for over 5 years, applying liquid eyeliner seems like second nature. I have had alot of girls tell me that it is really difficult for them to apply thier liquid eyeliner. So, I'm going to give you a couple tips on how to apply your eyeliner and review of a few of my favorite liquid eyeliners.

1. Purchase a liquid eyeliner with felt tip, this makes the application easier
2. When applying your liquid eyeliner rest your elbow on the table or a hard surface to stop your hand from shaking and making crooked lines
3. Have Q-tips and make- up remover on hand to fix up any imperfections
4. Practice drawing lines on the back on your hand to get familar with the product you are using.

How to apply liquid eyeliner
1. First shake your liquid eyeliner
2. Using your brush (from the liquid eyeliner) start at the center of your eye and draw a line going to the end of your lashes towards the direction of your ear.
3.Using little strokes starting from the begining of your eyelashes (by your nose) connect the line with the half line you already have drawn.
4. To make a flick or a cat eye draw a triangle at the end of your line that is close to your ear, than fill in your triangle and go over any of the spots that you may have missed the first time you applied your eyeliner.

A product thumbnail of Palladio Liquid Eyeliner BlackSo, I feel since I wrote about  liquid eyeliner I should do a review on two of my favorite liquid eyeliners. The first eyeliner is the Palladio liquid eyeliner in the color black. I love this eyeliner because it has a felt tip and stays on through out the day. And it doesn't crack when you are removing the eyeliner. I would give this eyeliner a 5/5.  Plus, if you are on a budget like me this little beauty won't hurt your wallet to much. It sells for 6 dollars at an Sally's beauty supply. You can also order it online at http://www.sallybeauty.com/Liquid-Eyeliner/PLADIO6,default,pd.html.

ARTLINER - Precision Point EyeLinerIf you are looking for a high end product I would reccomend using  the LANCOME artliner. The art liner comes in 6 different colors , which are Brown,Ice brown,Noir, Plum Glimmer, Smoke and Sparkling Noir. I purchased the Ice Brown for Homecoming a year or two ago and I don't use for an every day look but when I feel like I am bored of the black I will use the Ice Brown or I usually use the Ice Brown to make a classy look for interview or if I am going somewhere where I have to look professionl. This eyeliner is great because it has a felt tip as well and the applicator is really long so you have more control of the line. This product costs around 29 dollars but, it is worth the money because it last a really long time. I love this eyeliner also because it allows you to make a precise line and doesnt tugg or scratch you skin.The only thing that I am not a big fan of this eyeliner for is that to get the pigment in the lighter colors such as the Ice Brown you really have to do two layers of the eyeliner but otherwise it is a great eyeliner and your money worth. You can take a look or purchase the eyeliner by clicking the link below.

If anyone has tried the MAC liquid eyeliners please let me know. I have been wanting to try it but because they fit my price range of make up better than the Lancome ones. But, I havnt heard anyone really ranting about them so if you have tried them please, please, please let me know. :)

Rockaholic Dry Shampoo

Lush Review

Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

I absolutley love this lip balm. I bought it a week or so ago because the weather was making my lips really chaped and the regular chapstick was just not doing the trick. But, this amazing little lip balm goes above and beyond my expectations. I heard people talking about it before but I never tried before now and I highly regret it. There are a couple different flavors of the lip balm. My favorite would be the orginal one with peppermint because I like the cool sensation on my lips. Burts Bees also have a Mango, Acai Berries, Honey and Pomegrante. The cost for these lip balms are between 3 to 5 dollars. You can also purchase a pack with all three flavors for about 7 dollars.
