The Bronzer for People Who Don't Use Bronzers: Makeup Geek Bronze Luster in Tawny

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review on the Makeup Geek Bronze Luster in TawnyOf all the things I've talked about on the blog, you might have noticed (or not noticed) the fact that I don't talk about bronzer that much. If I'm honest, I think I could count the number of bronzers I've owned in my life on one hand. Makeup Geek had a great Mystery Box deal where you could get a bunch of their products for a great discount so I wanted to give it a try, even knowing the set came with a bronzer. 

The Makeup Geek Bronze Luster Bronzer was released as part of their In the Nude Collection earlier this year; there are three shades available: Sun-Kissed (for light skin tones), Tawny (for medium skin tones), and Burnished (for deeper skin tones).

Real Techniques Instapop Eye Duo Brushes: Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links 

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review on the Real Techniques Instapop Eye Duo Brushes, a set of eye brushes that were recently launched. I first heard about these brushes when EmilyNoel83 used them as part of a Get Ready with Me video featuring other brushes from the line and thought it was so cool to see her do her eye look with virtually just this brush duo. I'm always into finding eye brushes that work well for my eye shape (small hooded double eyelids) so these looked super interesting.

The brush set is $9.99 and available at Real Techniques and ULTA. The brushes come in a set of two, you won't be able to purchase them individually.

The Makeup Show LA 2017: Purchases/Haul

I Purchased This Affiliate Links Press Sample

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about some of the products I purchased/received while I was at The Makeup Show LA earlier this month. The Makeup Show LA is by far one of the greatest makeup shows in LA, giving professionals in the industry the opportunity to get the most relevant education from the best of the best and stock up on their kit. The last event for the year is the Makeup Shop NYC, a popup event open to the public which gives you the opportunity to shop and get some education too in a lighter format!

I had the opportunity to attend a press preview and get materials from a variety of exhibiting brands and I also shopped around on Sunday to get brands that I might not normally be able to try in person (and at a good price). My purchases/haul span quite a few brands so I thought I'd break it down into Eye Products, Lip Products, Face Products, Brushes, and Skincare. The products I received at the press preview are highlighted with an asterisk*.

Here's the cumulative haul but I have pictures from each section if you'd like more information with my thoughts on some of the products. I'll also have links to each product in case something interests you!

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby.  I don't think anyone in the beauty community missed out on hearing about Fenty Beauty/Rihanna's makeup line and I wanted to make sure I didn't miss out. Given Rihanna's penchant for color, I was rather interested in seeing how inclusive their foundation was and how there was such a variety of highlighters to fit so many skin tones.

I went back and forth between the highlighters; I swatched a few of the duos and the single Metal Moon before I decided on Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby.
