Subtle Smokey Eyeshadow Look with Neutroena Healthy Skin Makeup

I’ve partnered with Neutrogena to recreate one of their #HolidayHealthySkin Looks. I normally have great skin, but the winter dryness and the stress of my family holiday vacation caused me to break out a little bit. Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Makeup is meant to actually improve skin tone and texture over time, and helped to cover up some of my blemishes and stay flawless for the holiday season. I recreated Eiza González’s soft smoky look here, you can see more holiday looks out on the Neutrogena website.

Fenty Beauty Soft Matte Filt'r Foundation and Instant Retouch Primer Makeup Review

FENTY BEAUTY. You guys. If you haven't heard about Rihanna's new cosmetic line of incredibly inclusive shades than you have been hiding under a rock. 

I'll break it down for you if you haven't heard. Rihanna, the unburnt, the flawless, the snatcher of edges, mother of umbrellas, the first of her name, has a beauty line called Fenty Beauty that has 40 shades of foundation designed particularly with dark skinned beauties in mind that probably can't find their shade in other brands.

This is kind of a big deal. If you're white or fair skinned, you might not know this, but most cosmetic brands do NOT carry shades dark enough for many black people. If they do, it's likely that they don't have them in stock at stores and you have to go online to buy them. Can you imagine how that must feel? 

There are other brands that carry a lot of different shades like CoverFX and Mac, but the difference here is that this line is marketed specifically to women who may have trouble finding their color, whereas other brands seem to add more colors as an afterthought.

So Queen Rihanna, being the benevolent leader that she is, took it upon herself to create this amazing line of shades. LOOK AT THEM. 

Ok, so clearly I'm obsessed with Rihanna, so this review is a little biased in that I believe she is a perfect baby angel sent from above, but I did try the foundation out for myself so I could let you know what's up.

I'm not normally a matte foundation gyal as I usually prefer dewey looks and bb creams, but I tried Fenty for ya. I didn't want to buy a full bottle because I wasn't sure I'd like it, so I got a sample with a routine Sephora purchase. I looked at the website to see what my shade was, and I guessed I'd be shade 180, but the sample that came was shade 150 and actually worked really well for me. If you are interested in buying this, I'd suggest testing swatches in person at your nearest Sephora if you can to make sure you find a true match. 

I used the Fenty Beauty Instant Retouch Primer that came with the sample pack before putting on the foundation. Then I put on the Soft Matte Filt'r Foundation with a beauty blender and I actually really like the formula. It's not too thick, and it's buildable so you can chose your level of coverage and just build onto spots that need a little more coverage.

I wore it all day and night and even went dancing and it stayed put. I didn't do any retouches during the day and was pretty impressed with its staying power. My face looked flawless, and I think this is a great foundation for days you know you'll be in a lot of photos. 

As it's a matte formula, I would recommend wearing moisturizer before you put foundation on and making sure to moisturize after, but you should be doing that always anyway.

Overall, I loved it. I'd love to hear more from any babes with darker skin to see if you felt like it was easy to find a color match.

A full size primer is $32 and the full size foundation is $34, which is a pretty affordable price for a high quality foundation.

If you are also hesitant to pull the trigger and want to try the formula before you buy it, you can use the coupon code FENTYFACE with any online Sephora purchase to get the same little sample pack I did. 

Here's a link to Fenty Beauty stuff on Sephora so you can check out what other products they have too, my next item I want to check out is the Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighter that everyone has been going on about.

Have you tried Fenty Beauty yet? Do you normally have trouble finding your shade in most brands? Let me know what's up in the comments below. <3 <3 #rihannaforever

 

Colourpop Yes Please Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Guys, I'm so excited I was able to get my paws on this Colourpop Yes Please eyeshadow palette. I feel like warm, hot tones are very in and I'm having a lot of fun spicing up my makeup looks with reds and oranges.

I don't have a ton of experience with Colourpop eyeshadows, as I'm more of their lippie girl, but for $16 and for all the hype, I had to try it out.

I swatched all the colors for you guys to take a look. I'm Asian (duh) with a fierce yellow undertone, so some of these colors will obviously look a little different on you.

First impressions are that the shadows are pretty pigmented, especially the glittery tones, but are a little loose. A little color on your makeup brushes will go a long way, and the darker colors may experience some fallout, so you might want to do your foundation after you've done your eyeshadow. I experienced the most fallout with the darkest shade, French Kiss. 

 
 

The colors blend really well and I love how many different shades there are to play with. Here's a look using the palette and I added an ombré lip using a Coloupop Ultra Matte Lip in First Class and Wet n Wild's Liquid Catsuit in Coral Corruption.

This goes without saying but I'll say it anyway, I bought this on my own, and Colourpop probably doesn't even know who I am. My overall impression is that it's a great deal for $16, especially compared to some of the pricier cult fave palette like Urban Decay's Naked palettes (Which I'm also obsessed with.)

It's currently as of writing this sold out, but if you follow the Colourpop Instagram or Facebook they always let you know when a restock is coming. 

Have you been able to get your mitts on this palette? What are your favorite colors so far? Tag me in your Instagram photos so I can SEEEEE.
