This Weeks Picks

Sunday, April 27, 2014

I've been really into pink and purple shadows lately. So,  I thought it would be appropriate to pull out this urban decay palette for this week. Urban decay shadows are by far my favorite. All there shadows that I have tried are very easy to blend, they have great color payoff, and are not chalky. Of course, if I am wearing any shadows I always like to apply a cream shadow under it. If you have read my post on the Maybelline 24 hour color tattoo, than you know my love for the cream shadows. There 5-6$ a pot and they are worth every penny. For this week, I took out the inked in pink and the pomegranate cream shadows. I think these two colors will look beautiful on their own for days this week were I don't have time and I just want to pop a little color on my lids. Also,  these cream shadows will prolong any powder shadows I wear over it. Some shadows from this palette I hope to try out this week will be:
1. Last Call
2. Chopper
3. Sin
4. Grifter

Review: Clinique All About Eyes Concealer

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Hello, its been awhile and I am back with a review. I am a big concealer junkie so when I came across the Clinique all about eyes concealer about a year ago,  I knew this was going be a holy grail product.....and it is. What's really nice about this concealer is that the brand Clinique use very sensitive ingredients. Therefore, their products are catered for those who have sensitive skin or those who prefer less chemicals in their makeup. That's why this concealer is hydrating, yet, has great coverage. At times, it is difficult to find a concealer that is pigmented, gives great coverage, and at the same time is hydrating. I tried Bobbie brown creamy concealer and although it is very hyped and well liked by many, it was okay because it creased and was not hydrating enough under my eye.
 This concealer comes with seven shades. The color selection is perfect for color correcting. I have the shade medium petal and it's a pinkish with a light peach undertone and it cancels any discoloration that I have from lack of sleep. The packaging is great because you don't need to stick your finger in anything. It is a  tube and it does not disperse more than you need. This concealer retails for $17 which is pretty good because it lasts a long time  because a little goes a long way. Overall, if your looking for a good color correcting concealer than check this one out because I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for reading and please let me know in the comments below your top concealers because I'd love to check them out.
