Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigments Barely Brazen Review

I was curious about shadow pigments, and finally tried one from Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigments in Barely Brazen. The color range was mostly bright, and I picket the champagne color for its versatility. It is fairly pigmented and have a beautiful highlighting effect. I used it around my inner corners, and it just looks perfect.

On its own, it does not have much of lasting power, but with primers I have seen it go for over 8 hours. I am pretty happy with my purchase, and might try more neutral colors from the line. I highly recommend Barely Brazen for highlighting.

Distressed/Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans

I used to be a distressed / destroyed jeans girl for the longest time. After realizing every jeans I own has a hole in them, which made them not so great for horrible winters we have around here, I decided to ban destroyed jean purchases for the longest time. I swear, the last time I bought a distressed jean was 5 years ago. But after seeing distressed shorts and boyfriend jeans on everyone, I decided it was time to let go of my ban. 

I think I can handle my addiction in moderation now (we will see...). Anyways, this guy is from American Eagle and it fits pretty loose, which makes it really true boyfriend jeans in my opinion, and the it is ripped pretty much everywhere, which is the trend currently. 

I have not worn it yet, but I am super excited to wear it all summer long...

Revlon Lash Potion in Brownish Black Review

I have been wanting to try Revlon Lash Potion for a while, and finally had the chance to try it. It has a medium size brush that separates lashes fairly well. The formula is very light and on the dry side. Together it results in very delicate lashes with a reasonable length and natural volume that resembles almost a doll like lashes. 

The waterproof formula lived up to its promises and lasted very well on the bottom lashes, but I had hard time removing them even with makeup remover. Overall, it is a nice mascara that lives up to its claims, and the result is very subtle and delicate, which some people prefer. For now, I still like my Maybelline Rocket Volume (review) for its falsies like effect.

Covergirl 3 in 1 Foundation and Chanel Brush : My Everyday Routine

You guys probably know by now that I have a problem skin and hate things that break me out. I find foundations to be the most irritating makeup for acne prone skin and could break skin out with only single use. Because my skin is just horrible bare, I use foundation pretty much 90% of the time. I have recently reviewed Lancome Teint Idole which is great for oily/combination skin, but I have found a great alternative for affordable price. 

Covergirl 3 in 1 Foundation in Buff Beige is my everyday foundation for now. I use it with my Chanel foundation brush #6 (reviewed here), which works well.  I bought it for $8 at target, the cheapest price in the market. The coverage is medium to full and blends easily giving very natural matte finish. It lasts for 8 hours in cooler weather, and for about 5 hrs in humid weather. 

Shade availability is impressive, but they run shade or two darker after application. It oxidizes on skin, becoming darker with orange undertone. I have read that other people experienced it as well. So pick a shade or two lighter than you expect and if you find it bit orange, go lighter. I love Covergirl 3 in 1 foundation and would be repurchasing it for a while for sure.
