Beauty - Cosmetics Review

HD Skin Foundation - Make Up For Ever: Too heavy for my preferences, but I don't care for full coverage foundations.

Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish: A really lovely lip gloss.  The color Dolly is one of Isabella's favorites.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Award-Winning Natural Flawless Foundation: I would need to purchase this to really tell what my full opinion is.  Based on the sample though, I don't really want to purchase this as nothing stands out to me.  I have some beautiful foundations and don't need another one.

Valentino 100R Roman Grace Striking Satin Lip Color Light-Lasting Wear: A really nice moisturizing lip stick.  Wasn't wowed in a way that I felt it was worth more than a drug store lipstick though really.

Benefit Boiing Concealor - This was too heavy and creased immediately on me.

La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation - I thought this was nice and if it was affordable I might try it, but at it's price point I don't see anything in the few samples that I have tried that out perform my current favorites.

bareMinerals Mineralist Lip Gloss-Balm - a lovely lip gloss.  I have no desire on purchasing a full sized product as I can't say that I want to use this over any of my current favorites.

Rare Beauty Soft Ping Matte Liquid Blush - highly pigmented.  I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.  I would prefer to need a heavy hand on something than and infinitively light hand.  I have the sample in the color Grace.  Maybe a lighter color and I would have an easier experience with this.  

YSL Lash Clash Mascara - I really like this mascara.  A lot.  Except... it transfers all over the place.  In this humidity and I guess with my oily eyelids (only in Alabama?) all regular mascaras transfer.  Hourglass Unlocked in my current go to, but I can't wear it if I am getting sweaty as the tubes are all over my face in a gross mess.  My stubby lashes are the bane of my existence.... le sigh.

Wet n Wild Coconut 3-In-1 Primer Water - This is probably my favorite drug store setting spray.  A lot of times I can't tell if a setting spray really improves anything from glow, to longevity, etc...  I think part of it is user error in that I am not using enough historically.  Despite that, I did notice with this one.  

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray - One of my favorites.  I need to use this heavier in the future in order to give a full impression as I realized I am not using enough of it to melt cosmetics to my skin.

Rimmel Wonder'Full Brow - a solid brow gel with fibers.  I prefer the ELF one as far as drugstore brow gels go, but this one wasn't bad.

NYX Retractable Eye Liner in Bronze - THE most purchased cosmetics in my history.  I almost always have a back up of this one as it is often sold out in local stores.  Have used this for at least 10 years now.  There is something special about the formula on this color that makes it super easy to use.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil - This is a great eyebrow pencil, but I honestly am not a fan of micro brow pencils.  My brows need a lot of help and too many strokes are required to fill in with a micro pencil.

Maybelline Dream BB Fresh 8-In-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector - Probably my most purchased foundation.  I would be curious to try this again now that I have been using luxury foundations exclusively over the last 6 months.

Hourglass Unlocked Mascara - my favorite mascara for Alabama's humidity, but this isn't perfect as I still end up with issues during high activity.  Some day...

Charlote Tilbury Brow Lift - I really liked this, but I think you can purchase an equally nice one for a lot lower.  The packaging feels cheap which really makes one wonder why the high price tag.
