Makeup Review!

I am not a makeup guru. At all, really. I just started getting into makeup in my late twenties, and now that I'm 32 {33 in July!} I really like finding quality products that make me feel and look good!  I've been watching You Tube and saw this little gem available for only $26 at Sephora. I went in to try it out and fell instantly in love.

I also grabbed that concealer which is fab too!

I honestly really like this foundation. I sprayed it onto the back of my hand and applied it with my brush [below] I really thought it'd be hard to apply, but really it went on perfectly! I also took note and decided not to directly spray my face.  The girl at Sephora sprayed the brush, but I didn't want the foundation all over my white carpet in the bathroom. I know, who puts white carpeting in bathrooms? I would like to know!!


The great thing is you can add extra coverage if you want, or keep it light if you're like me and don't want too much.


I ordered this off amazon. 


Even my husband noted that my makeup looked really nice!  He said it didn't look "too makeupy" and I know what he means.  Sometimes with my Bare Minerals foundation, I feel like it makes my pores appear bigger than they are and like I am applying too much powder, even though I didn't put a lot on.

I am now intrigued to try out some drugstore foundations, just to play around a bit. I clipped a bunch of coupons in Sunday's paper, so we shall see what I can find. {What else is a girl to do in NEGATIVE DEGREE WEATHER!?!? I'm over this ish.}

I am also in search of some zit cream, as I have these reoccurring pimples at the corner of my mouth, that once one goes away, another comes in! It's annoying and uncomfortable. Suggestions????  Sexsay, I know, I know.

  1. That's amazing! It has great coverage!!! I am a Smashbox snob and am beyond obsessed with their products. You should try their Photo Finish Primer, it's literally a life changing make up product!

  2. So do you love it?! Would you buy it again? I wanna know before I drop $26 on it. I still haven't found a foundation yet that I LOVE. :( I like the Neutrogena rapid clear for clearing up those nasty ugly pimples that pop up overnight. I've tried EVERTHING for acne, from super cheap stuff to the crap that costs $50 a tube. It's the only one I keep coming back to because it works. Be careful only to use it on the spot of the pimple though, it will seriously dry out your skin.

  4. I use bare minerals usually and like it but I am intrigued but this! I may have to try it. As for the pimples I have the same problem now that I am pregnant. Damn hormones! I find witch hazel helps!
