Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

Milk-Makeup-and-creating-a-smokey-eye
A liner is a liner is a liner, right? So not! If you love makeup like I do then you already know this. Overall liner have sure have gotten better and I feel we are at a peak right now. I mean take these ones, they are a gel (remember when a gel liner only came in a pot?), they’re waterproof (most are still only water resistant), and these dry down to a totally unmovable finish for hours (remember when liner barely lasted the evening out?).

And those three traits and more are what you get with MILK MAKEUP Long Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22 @ milkmakeup.com, sephora.com).

Stila Cosmetics Vivid & Vibrant Collection

Using-Stila-Cosmetics-Vivid-&-Vibrant-Makeup-Collection-final-look
This Vivid & Vibrant Collection from STILA COSMETICS is a tricky one. A lot of the items are filled with shimmer and glitter so I had to be choosy when it came to what I used for this look and take my time b/c I would have been easy to go overboard!

Click the link below the bottom pic to see what I used to get just the right amount of shimmery glow for this look!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer

Charlotte-Tilbury-Magic-Away-Liquid-Concealer
Since my skin is quite dry under my eyes, I’m always on the hunt for a really good concealer that’s not going to sit in my fine lines. When I heard about CHARLOTTE TILBURY Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 @ charlottetilbury.com, net-a-porter.com), my ears perked up! She just came out with a new complexion collection and this one comes in 16 shades. Nice!

Ms. Tilbury claims she’s been working on creating a Holy Grail concealer for years and this is her throwing her hat in the ring. Key ingredients inside hers include Persian Silk Tree Extract, which give hers a unique elastic-stretch that’s allows it to hug curves, Palmitoyl Glycine is for anti-aging and the extract of wild indigo, an under eye brightener.

The applicator sponge is also unique. It’s called the Magic Miracle Precision beauty blender (arn’t those last two words trademarked?) and was designed to rollover and hug your skin. And the formula is housed in a click-pen, which I’m not a huge fan of since sometimes I’ve clicked and clicked and the product has never come out! But on the other side, it keeps the liquid bacteria-free. Love that.

So how did this one do? Click below to find out!

Wet N Wild MegaCushion Foundation

Wet-N-Wild-MegaCushion-Foundation-main
It’s funny how I can buy a product, use it a few times, love it and then forget about it/misplace it. That’s exactly what happened with this WET N WILD MegaCushion Foundation SPF 15 ($8.99 @ walgreens.com, ulta.com target.com). Now cushion foundations are nothing new to the industry and I’ve tried and liked a few of them. I’m not really sure why though! I mean, it’s just liquid foundation in a sponge in an air-tight compact. Or is it?

It-Cosmetics-Your-Skin-But-Better-CC+-Oil-Free-Matte-SPF40-in-bag
One of my all-time favorite foundations is from the IT COSMETICS brand and it’s their Bye Bye Foundation in Medium. It just melts into my skin and makes my skin look like my skin but better. So as you can imagine, it was hard to move over to testing out their new Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 ($38/1.08oz @ itcosmetics.com, sephora.com).

Now there are three different versions – the regular one for a natural finish, the CC+ Illumination for a radiant finish and now this matte one.

How to Avoid Makeup Meltdown!

Can you believe we still have over a month of summer temps? My biggest problem this time of year when it comes to makeup is the dreaded makeup meltdown. It’s not fun and doesn’t look good. Here are few I like that will help you avoid it this season.

Say-Buh-Bye-To-Makeup-Melt
Face Primer
GUERLAIN L’Or Radiance Primer ($74/1oz @ sephora.com, nordstrom.com) – a good face of makeup needs something to adhere to and this one gets my vote.

Setting Mist SUPERGOOP Supergoop! X MILLY Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 ($28/3.4oz @ sephora.com) – keep it all in place with a good makeup setting spray. And this one has SPF 50 built in so you refreshing all day will give you a shot of protection from the sun.

Brow Gel PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @ walgreens.com) – I inherited my father’s brows so my brow hairs get long so keeping them in place is a must. This duo adds a dash of color and the other end combs it all in place.

Blush – I usually go with a cream blush but this CARGO Swimmables Water Resistant Blush ($26 @ ulta.com, dermstore.com) is showing its strength. This one is sweatproof and waterproof so I’m restoring my faith in pressed powder during the summer again.

Anti-Lip bleeding LippieMAC Liptensity Lip Pencil ($21 @ maccosmetics.com, nordstrom.com) – I’ve been wearing these as full lip colors and the added benefit? No bleeding! The Marsala shade is a favorite. 

MascaraBENEFIT BADgal Waterproof Mascara ($19 @ benefitcosmetics.com, hsn.com) – one of my favorite mascaras for bad-girl lashes comes in a waterproof formula so it will totally stay on.

Budge-proof liner URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($21 @ urbandecay.com, sephora.com, ulta.com) – liner running down the face couldn’t look worse so prevent it with any of their 50+ shades.

Buxom-PillowPout-Creamy-Plumping-Lip-Power-with-boxes
I just love the blotted lip-look but try as I may, it’s not always easily obtainable. The BUXOM brand is trying to make it easier with their PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder ($22 @ buxomcosmetics.com, ulta.com, sephora.com).

What It Is: A unique lip powder that delivers a blotted, semi-matte finish for all-day, comfortable wear.

Wunder2 Super-Stay Liquid Eyeliner

Wunder2-Super-Stay-Liquid-Eyeliner-and-boxes
While I was busy trying every product on the market, this line was quietly coming out with new products besides the brow item that put them on the map. Wunderbrow changed their name from Wunderbrow to WUNDER2. Here are the five colors that make up their Super-Stay Liquid Eyeliner Long-Lasting & Waterproof Liquid Eyeliners ($15.95 @ wunder2.com) collection.

What’s always surprised me is when a brand can claim 24-hour wear. Why are they allowed to get away with this? I mean, yes, I did get a nice long wear out of these colors but I don’t think I can stay up a full 24-hours to see if these go the distance. Do you believe when brands say this?
