"I've always admitted that I'm ruled by my passions"
Hello my lovelies!
I am honestly dead tired at this moment and in a terrible mood after being yelled at for 8 hours straight, so I'm going to keep this little intro as short and sweet as possible.
I decided to combine October and November this time around, as I didn't have much to work with from October to begin with. I do have an eye makeup tutorial for this coming Friday, so if you're interested in finding out how I got this eye look, tune in later this week!
Too Faced Primed and Peachy - I don't know if this is my favorite primer EVER, but I do really enjoy it. I think the smell is awesome, but I wouldn't say it gives off a peach scent, although I can't put my finger on what the scent is. Nonetheless, while this primer does work well, I don't see any marked improvements to the longevity of my makeup or how it goes on. I would say that it helps curb my oiliness, and that's ultimately what I'm looking for in a primer.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation - I would like to formally note that Fenty beauty has MADE A PERFECT SHADE FOR ME....It's also the shade specifically designated for Albinism. Personally, I think the coverage could be better, as well as the oil control (not much for a matte foundation), but damn does my skin look smooth as hell when I wear it. I never have my forehead or smile lines show up when wearing this foundation. Unfortunately, I have a suspicion that this foundation might be breaking me out along my jawline, but I'm probably going to keep using it anyway.
NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in "Twilight Tint" - This is a really cool highlighter if you like something different and intense. It reminds me of the ABH Moonchild Higlighting palette in many ways, but at a much more reasonable price. If you are going to spend a lot of time in fluorescent or harsh lighting, I would not chuck this on as it can quickly look like a chalky stripe, but this looks absolutely gorgeous in natural lighting and flash photography.
Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Define + Fill Duo - Still not really feeling the powder side, but I thoroughly enjoy the pencil side of this product for sure. I've started venturing into the more structured brow realm, and this has made my journey a fairly easy one that doesn't make me want to rip my hair out. Definitely going to post an official first brow routine once I'm a little more practiced, and this product will be in it.
Maybelline The City Mini Palette in "Concrete Runway" - This is a very good palette for $10.00, and while it does have some flaws, I still find myself reaching for this one and my Downtown Sunrise palette on a somewhat regular basis. These aren't necessarily as pigmented as my Urban Decay or Anastasia shadows, but for the brand and price, I am more than pleased with the payoff and blendability.
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Lacquer Liner in "Purple Rebel" - Fun story, I was originally going to do a purple cut crease with this product. It patched up so badly, I had to start over and rethink what I wanted to do. I genuinely threw this liner away, which is a shame because Maybelline has been kinda killing it lately. This is such a shockingly streaky and patchy product, it picks up on itself horribly, and cracks once dried down. The color is gorgeous when you waste a lot of time working with it, but it's not even worth the time consuming effort when I can find something infinitely better (Product not shown in picture).
Covergirl Peacock Mascara - This mascara is OK. It's not bad, but it's also not special. The packaging is gorgeous and I like the formula, but the brush does a fairly poor job of distributing product, and stabs me in the eyeball when I use it. If I could get a wand like L'oreal Lash Paradise with this formula, I would be happy as a clam.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in "Obsession" - Lordy was this a bummer for me. I have spent all this time hearing amazing things about these liquid lips, and when I finally got my hands on one, it flat out sucked. I had to layer it in order to get a non-streaky layer, and once I did layer this product, it literally crumbled off of my lips. I'm not sure if this is just a problem with this color, as dark colors can be a bitch to make, but I was NOT happy with my predicament after hearing such high praise (Product not shown in picture).
That's all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don't forget to have an awesome Wednesday, it's hump day y'all!
