I have watched plenty make up tutorials and various famous Youtubers who often use beauty blenders. I wet before I used it and instantly regretted it once I started to use the beauty blender, the water did make the sponge expands but the product didn’t apply well with the damp sponge. A Beauty Blender is great for those who like sponges compared to make up brushes, it also sets make up well without having to put a powder over.
LA Girl Pro Concealer
This concealer is a great affordable product it completely covers blemishes and dark marks well and blends out into foundation giving the face a natural look. There are 18 different shades in the range, I bought a shade darker than my skin colour to use to contour with. The formula is thick and the applicator on the tube helps to get the product on properly however I do find it a bit difficult to get the product out the tube. LA girl is known for it’s dupes of various high end make up products, I wouldn’t say this concealer is a match the MAC pro long wear concealer I currently use, but its definitely a close second.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
This palette has the most pigmented, smooth eye shadow I have ever used. There is lots of hype around the Urban Decay palette and the Naked range is very well known. The colours are quite neutral and vary metallic and matte colours. The packaging is very simple making the palette easy to store and the hard case makes it safe to travel with. The palette comes with a brush duo, a fluffy blending brush on one side and a regular eye shadow brush on the other. One thing I did notice is that with time the eye shadow did tend to crease but I think with some eye shadow primer is should be good to go.
MAC Studio Fix Foundation
What’s not to love about MAC cosmetics – I don’t think I have ever been disappointed with MAC products. The Studio Fix Foundation has great coverage and the formula is perfect for oily skin. I wish this foundation had a pump bottle but unfortunately it doesn’t. That is honestly the only negative thing about it. There is a large range of shades and the make up artists at MAC are very good finding a match for your skin tone.
CALA Make Up Brushes
This brush set consists of a contour brush, an eye shadow brush, Concealer Brush, a Shading Brush and a Brow Brush. I was a bit skeptical of these brushes at first mainly because I haven’t heard much about the brand but I think it was a good buy. The brushes are easy to use and they hold enough product unlike other brushes I’ve purchased before. These brushes are also sold individually along with a wide range of others, which I will be purchasing soon because I am so impressed with this brush set.
Have a great weekend,
