I have a new favorite foundation and it’s expensive. Tom Ford’s Traceless Soft Matte Foundation is lux! It is medium to full coverage and feels like nothing on the skin. It has a matte finish with light diffusing microspheres to blur any imperfections. The foundation is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, E, and Caffeine to plump and care for your skin. It lasts all night and will work in humid environments. If you want to spend the money this is it!


the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer from Fenty Beauty! This is my new go-to lip gloss. The color, texture, feel, and look are perfect. I have it in “Fussy”. It’s soft and light, and has good staying power for a gloss. It has no glitter but major reflective shine. It conditions with Shea Butter, it’s not sticky, and has a pretty scent. So pucker up with Fenty!

I have never cared for mascara primer until now. I love Mally’s Open Up Mascara Primer. It perfectly separated and extended my lashes. It is lightweight and easy to apply. The unique brush shape allows you to get every little lash and the formula is conditioning to your lashes. It only adds an extra two seconds to your makeup and routine and delivers a big difference. I noticed it made my mascara stick to my lashes better. I often get black on my brow bone from lashes touching my skin, and this did not happen. I found it to remove easily. I have somewhat sensitive eyes and did not have any irritation. So swipe on and open wide…

Lip Gloss from Mally. This gloss is shiny and lightweight. There is no tackyness, and it lasts (for a gloss). I love the applicator. It grabs the perfect amount for application, and the pointed tip allows you to be exact with placement. I loved the color on me, and think it would work well with most skin tones. It is a nice in-between of a berry and a pink. There is a light tingle when applied. I did not notice any plumping, however I have big lips so it’s not always evident. Lips are left hydrated, soft, comfortable. The gloss has Vitamin E, Rice Bran oil, Jojoba Seed and Sweet Almond Oils to soften and moisturize. I will be using this flexible nude from Summer to Winter.

tell you what I’m into lately. I found an amazing makeup sponge that is super cheap. It’s the Real Techniques Miracle Airblend Mattifying Beauty Makeup Sponge. I use it for almost every step of my makeup. It gives a flawless foundation finish, and blends your bronzers, blushes, and highlighters beautifully. It has a flat edge, rounded sides, and precision tip to get all over your face. As with all these sponges they work better when you use them wet.

I’m puckering up with Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper. I’m not one to use lip plumping products but I was sent this for free, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. OMG this stuff actually works. My lips were immediatly plumped and left with beautiful shine too.

I’m getting Big Hair with Tresemme’s One Step 5 in 1 Texture spray. It makes my beach waves look dramatic, and it revives next day hair. I usually use aerosol texture sprays, this seems to have a stronger grip.

Try out my May finds, and let me know yours….

is my new mascara. It’s called The Best Little Mascara Ever. I use the length + definition formula. I am very picky when it comes to Mascara’s. I’m often not won over by popular, trendy ones. This one is made with over 90% natural ingredients, include Candelilla Wax and Restorative Palm Oil. It’s smudge proof, sweat proof, smear proof, so no Panda Eyes. It is easily removed with water, and seems to come off like a tubing mascara (even though it is not). It has a short, curved want to really get onto each lash. It has a wet consistency, yet bonds to lashes fast. You can subscribe to get it delivered on subscription. So bat your lashes, and get the best little mascara ever!

with your purchasing power. It’s easy with Gen See Beauty. This clean makeup company makes products that are sustainable and created ethically. I have been using their Spectator Sport Mascara and Clean Sheen Lip Gloss. I didn’t have high expectations for the Mascara because in the past “clean mascara” has let me down. I was wrong! My favorite thing about it is that it does not transfer. I have long lashes and all mascaras leave black on my brow bone. This one did not, even in extreme humidity. It lengthened, Curled, and Separated as well. There was zero clumping, it’s waterproof, yet easy to remove. My favorite thing about the Lip Gloss is the applicator. It perfectly covers your lips in this super hydrating, clear gloss. It’s major shine with zero color. Their website goes into detail on every ingredient in the cosmetics as well as the packaging. Don’t you wish everyone was as transparent…

I’m taking into 2022….

OJESH Premium Lifting Face Mask. This is the best sheet mask I have found. It is a luxury sheet mask that uses hyaluronic acid and marine sponge collagen to lift, plump, and rejuvenate skin. I notice immediate results with this.

 

Givenchy Teint Couture Everwear 24h Foundation SPF 29. I love this foundation because it’s breathable yet lasts 24 hours. It gives full coverage and has hydrating properties and spf. 

Chantecaille Bio Lifting Mask. This mask is powered by botanicals that fight lines and wrinkles. You can use it as a 10 minute mask or leave in on overnight for majorly hydrated skin.

PanteenSmooth Airspray Hairspray. This hairspray has a light, flexible, hold and is brushable. A great alternative to Elnett

Covergirl Clean Fresh Lip Stylo. This lightweight lipstick feels like gloss. It’s nourishing and conditioning. It adds a hint of shine and color. 

TYPOLOGY Nourishing Hair Oil with Pequi 5% and Argan Oil. I’ve reviewed this before, but I’ve re-fallen in love with it. It is a rich oil that protects and controls hair. It completly takes away my frizz.

Shine lip gloss with Patricia de Leon’s Sexy Shine Lip Gloss. I have it in Angel. It is the best feeling lipgloss I have ever used. It’s super light, and extremely silky. There is zero stickiness, or oiliness. I don’t feel the need to constantly reapply.  The line is vegan and cruelty free. So pucker up to PDL Cosmetics, and kiss the sticky, heavy, glosses goodbye…

are easy to attain, thanks to Kelley Baker. Kelley is a renowned makeup artist turned brow expert. She has many celebrity clients, including the Kardashians. “A Kelley Baker brow has a very distinctive, natural look. Kelley is a minimalist and a stickler for straight lines. She believes the key to a sleek, natural brow is not overdoing it with the product. Her signature collection of brow products was created to subtly enhance the brows in a soft manner without them looking drawn on.” I love every product I’ve tried of hers. My favorite is the Camo-Light Highlighter Pencil. It is a soft, creamy , gel like pencil. It camouflages and flaws and adds lift to the brow bone. It brightens the eye area with a subtle light affect, not a glitter or shimmer. I recommend getting the Highlighter Smudge Brush to perfectly blend the product. The Brow Defining Pencil is as good, if not better than any one of tried. It is a long wear formula, that glides on easy with and ultra fine tip. The spooly perfectly blends out the pencil for a precise, natural look. Lastly, the Tinted Brow Gel keeps your perfectly done look in place. It volumizes and tames, and is sweatproof for all day long wear. So even if your life is a mess, get with Kelley Baker to get your brows in order!….
