Product Review -- Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette


I've been a big fan of Too Faced's matte eyeshadow formula for years -- all the way back to their original matte shadow palette in the little square box that I believe has long since been discontinued.

The Natural Matte Eye Shadow Collection, which is still available, is another favorite of mine, though, so I'm pretty much always willing to give a Too Faced matte palette a try.

Especially when it's part of the Sweet Peach collection.

I am such as sucker for peach makeup products.

So I knew that I had to have the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette from the first moment I saw a photo of it on Instagram.

Product Review -- bareMinerals Bare Pro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation



bareMinerals Original Loose Mineral Foundation was one of the first "high end" foundations that I ever bought for myself.

I was in college, and after seeing a few too many presentations of it on QVC, I ordered it, and for a few years, I wore it pretty much exclusively.

So a few years ago when they came out with their first liquid foundation, Bare Skin Serum Foundation, I couldn't wait to try -- and it's a pretty good foundation. I still wear it quite a bit, though the coverage is more natural to light, so there are times when it isn't quite enough.

Which is why I was super excited to hear that they were coming out with another liquid foundation, the bareMinerals Bare Pro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation.

Product Review -- Maybelline The City Mini Palettes


These days, it seems like Maybelline is putting out new products all the time.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

While Maybelline has hits and misses like any brand, I'm always willing to at least give their stuff a try because I feel like there's a good chance I'll enjoy it.

I was excited to see that they'd come out with the new City Mini Palettes a couple of months back because eye shadow is one area where I feel like the brand falters quite a bit. 

I haven't had much luck with their single shadows, their quads have been very hit or miss, and the larger Nudes palettes have all been something of a disappointment.

The only shadow product I've consistently enjoyed from them are the Eye Studio Color Plush Quads, which have decent pigmentation and a nice smooth, creamy texture. 

In a lot of ways, the City Mini Palettes remind me of the Color Plush Quads.

Product Review -- The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation and Coverage Foundation


Since I first tried The Ordinary's products about a year ago, I've pretty much fallen in love with their brand.

My skincare routine is pretty much 85% products from the line at this point, and my skin is probably in the best condition that it's ever been in since I was a kid and had a baby-smooth complexion.

So when I heard that The Ordinary was coming out with foundations, I was beyond excited.

And lots of other people were too apparently, because I missed the foundations when they first hit the site and had to wait almost two months before they were back in stock.

(Not that I was obsessively checking the website everyday to see if there were in stock or anything.)

Finally, though, I was able to get my greedy little hands on The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation and Coverage Foundation.
