Urban Decay: Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face & Body – Aura

My first impression at Sephora when I tested the Urban Decay Naked Illuminated in the color Aura was, “Holy Sh*t! This color gives off such a gorgeous glow!” To top it off after buying this shimmering powder, I was even more surprised when I saw that there was a little Urban Decay brush included which feels so soft!

It definitely does the work and it is highly pigmented! Would reccomend it to anyone!

Nars Palettes!

I got very lucky over the holidays, as my bestfriend Jasleen had bought me the Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette (the one on the right). I was eyeing this down for a while and of course she knew I was eyeing it down too. This palette contains a Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush Powder, Blush in Sex Fantasy (pale lavenders pink), Deep Throat (sheer peach), Final Cut (peach coral) and a Laguna Bronzing Powder (brown with gold shimmer). All of these products are high quality. The Laguna (the bronzer) is a great color and it sits amazing on my skin. The blushes are very soft and pigmented and blend very easily. Also, the highlighter I found was somewhat glittery, which some people may not be a fan of but I personally love as it looks so beautiful once it’s on. It’s definitely worth the purchase. I’m so thankful for my wonderful friend

I was so in love with Laguna bronzer from the Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette. I went out and bought the Algorithm Laguna Bronzing Powder Palette. Unfortunately this palette was limited edition, but you could still buy the smaller version of the bronzer. The thing I love about this palette is that it comes with a small little Ita Kabuki Brush and the packing of it is so beautiful that it makes the palette look so much nicer. This bronzer is amazing; if you don’t have it I personally think you should buy it. It gives a very natural glow without being shimmery. I adore this palette; it’s just so beautiful. It’s definitely worth the purchase.

Hit or Miss

Wow, did I have such high hopes for the Marc Jacobs Beauty foundation. I was pretty excited to try this foundation out after reading all these amazing reviews, but this foundation isn’t how I expected it to be. The Genius Gel Super Charged Oil Free Foundation isn’t what it says it is in my opinion. As described it was suppose to be a long-wearing foundation which was not the case at all in my experience. This foundation unfortunately made my face extremely oily, more than any other foundation has ever made my face and was basically off by noon. Not only was the foundation a disappointment but the Perfection Powder- Featherweight Foundation also didn’t work for me at all. When I tried to use this powder foundation with a powder brush nothing would come on my brush I would basically have to shove my brush in the foundation to get the slightest bit of product. The only good thing that I like is the Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer, this is my new fav concealer. It’s a creamy, full coverage concealer that makes your skin tone look flawless. I was very impressed.

Stila review

Stila – Patina 03

This is my go-to liquid lipstick.. (When i mean go-to I mean I wear it every single day i LOVE IT). If I had to choose one lipstick out of my collection, I would definitely pick this one. Lipsticks are my addiction and I can tell you that Stila did a great job creating this. The color is so gorgeous.. It is a dusty rose mauvey color and has a velvety-matte finish. When I first saw the lipstick I thought it was one of those liquidy glossy lip glosses. But when I swatched it on my arm – the color looked so BEAUTIFUL I had to buy it. The consistency was very creamy and after a few seconds.. BAM that gorgeous matte finish came out from the heavens. It kind of reminds me of something Kylie Jenner would wear.. It’s a lipstick that is great for the day. It is long lasting and I could literally go on with my day without worrying to re apply it.

One downfall is that since it is matte it sort of dries out my lips which is why I added this eos lip-balm into the picture. I would suggest you moisturize your lips with your fav balm prior to applying it.
