I love watching youtube makeup tutorials and lately everyone has been talking about Mac's Match-master foundation. It seemed as though everyone loved it so I decided to give it a try. Here is what I thought:

1) Color: In their studio fix fluid foundation I am in NC40. As per their consultant I should get the matchmaster in 5.0. Like all other mac foundations I found this to be extremely yellow:( I did not blend nicely and made me look orangey.

2) Longevity: It does have good staying power. It stayed put for atleast 10 hours.

3) Finish: This definitely give a matte finish. This would be a great foundation for anyone that has extremely oily skin.

This was not the foundation for me! It was too matte for me. I prefer  more of a satin to dewey finish. I also hated the color also, it gave an orange ting to my face.

Leathal Combination= Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara + Tarte Lights Camera Lashes

If you want long and voluminous lashes try this:

Step 1) Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara:   This is one of my faves! It give such volume to the lashes and I can apply a million coats and it doesn't make my lashes a crunchy and funky.

Step 2)  Then apply one coat of Tarte's "Lights Camera, Lashes" mascara on top of the Mally.
               You will get the best lashes you ever had!

*TIP: For even better lashes, curl your lashes before and after you have applied the mascara. (Just make sure the mascara is completely dry)

Leathal Combination = Nicole by OPI + Seche Vite

If you want your nail polish to last for a long time without any chipping, this is what you need:

For optimum results:
1) Paint names with nail polish.
2) Apply Nicole by OPI over your nail polish. Waite 5 minutes for it to semi-dry
3) Apply Seche Vite over that!

I have been doing this combo for over 2 months now and my manicures last at least 5 days without chipping!

All though they both claim to set your make-up and extend the life of your make-up, only one actually works!

1) E.L.F. Setting Spray,  has a very weird, medicinal smell! When I  sprayed this on my face it smeared my makeup and make my mascara run!

2) Urban Decay All nighter spray, has virtually no smell and when I sprayed this on my face felt like a very light mist. My makeup did not run and my mascara stayed in tact. Blush has always been an issue for me. I would always joke that my face eats blush because I put it on and after 2 or 3 hours by blush would be completely gone! However, for the past month I have been spraying this on my face and around 8am and when I reach home around 6pm, my blush is still intact!

Laura Mercier Haul and Review!!!

Ok! So the past couple of weeks I have been staring in every mirror in sight and taking constant pictures of myself. Not because I'm conceited but because Laura Mercier is a GENIOUS!
I have been using the Crème Smooth Foundation ($42)and I am beyond in love with this product!! Laura did not lie when she said it gives "flawless coverage." It makes my skin look as though someone just took an eraser and just erased all my freckles and redness and left me with perfect pore-less skin.
I have also been using the Tinted Moisturizer in Warm Radiance. ($42)
I have two words for this product! "The Bomb!" I have never had a moisturizer give so much coverage while giving my skin the "j-lo glow!" When I put this puppy on I get so much complements and questions on how I got the glow!
Ladies you can not go wrong with buying Laura's products! I plan on buying a whole lot more and doing some reviews!

Bonus Tip: The foundation should not be applied with a stippling brush! For best results use your fingers or any brush that has densely compact bristles.

A couple days ago Hautelook had a sale on Eve Pearl cosmetics and since I have always wanted to try them I thought, "why not!"
I purchased the HD dual pressed powder foundation. It comes in a small compact that has two shades of foundation. When I opened the compact I was surprised to see the color! The lighter side was more of a cream color and the darker side was a salmon color. (much like her concealer) I applied it with the sponge, and with a brush and got the same result both ways! I looked like an orange tinted disco ball:( This did not cover a thing and made me look very ashy!
  Bottom line, I really didn't feel that this was worth the money, even if I purchased it for less! I found that most drug store brands made me look better. Sorry Eve Pearl:(!

Nicole by OPI VS. Seche Vite....And the Winner is....?

I have been on a hunt for a good top coat that will make my polish last long and stay pretty!

I have been interchangeably using Nicole by OPI and Seche Vite for a couple of weeks now! Here are my findings:

Nicole by O.P.I. ($9) is a top coat that claims to reduce or stop your nail polish from chipping! I find that it does stop it from chipping however, you must have a professional nail drying machine or time to let your nails dry. Every time, I have applied this to my nails it would take at least 2 hours for my nails to completely dry! (Who has that kind of time) I didn't notice any chipping on my nails until 5 days after I have applied it.

Seche Vite ($10) is definitely the WINNER! It makes my nails look as though I have a glass overlay on my nails. It keeps my nails shinny and chip free for 5 days! This is worth every penny!
