Rating: 4/5. I don't really like facial foundations. I can use primers on my lips, eyelids, and eyelashes, but when it comes to face-specific ones, I usually skip them. I work pretty hard on my skin care so I never really understood how to add anything else. That said, I find this primer very nice. It is light but moisturizing and luxurious. If you don't have a great moisturizer that goes well with makeup yet, this is a great addition to your arsenal. Rating: 5/5. I've always considered myself extremely loyal when it comes to starting up (I've used it regularly for years), but this foundation is good enough to keep me from getting there. It is liquid and light, but offers good coverage and can be mixed very well without having to work too much. However, I would not say that it is absolutely buildable. So if you want to be able to create a layer to go from medium to full coverage, this is probably not the right solution. However, if you're looking for a more natural, blurry, and radiant skin effect, you've come to the right place. Rating: 3.5 / 5. Since I really only use concealer to lighten the area around my eyes, I prefer soft cream formulas. I find it much better if I concentrate on wrinkled areas like the sensitive skin under the eyes, where I apply concealer the most. This stick is not my favorite for that. I was surprised at how well I could hide it under my eyes without making it look too cakey, but I have to admit that I noticed that it was crumpling before I finished the rest of my face. Adjusting with a little powder definitely helps, but if you don't have to, you should definitely choose a different formula. Rating: 5/5. Ok, I'm impressed with this powder. You'd be surprised how often so-called "translucent" powders still appear as pale on brown skin tones. That was no problem at all with this. I also really like the super smart package. It has a curved basin with a small circular opening that has a piece of thin mesh into which the powder is released. All these small details ensure that there is no powder avalanche when a product is shaken out. The shape of the basin is also perfect for swirling a powder brush. Since I want my face to look radiant and not dull, I just dab this product on the concealer that needs adjustment and in areas like my T-Zone that get really shiny throughout the day. From packaging to product, this is an all-round win. Rating: 5.5 / 5. This stick is intended as a bronzer for your whole body, but I use it as a contour! I like that it is shimmering (not glittery – big difference) so that it softens the outline and makes it more accessible for the day. I have to add this extra half point here for the multipurpose factor. In the summer, I will definitely use this on my arms, shoulders, legs and clavicle to give my whole body some luminosity. Rating: 4/5. I am endlessly intimidated by eyeshadow palettes, but I still can't stop using them! In my opinion, this is the most accessible of all the beautiful pallets from the MJB series. I like the variety of neutral tones with different surfaces and I love how soft the shadows are. They are fairly easy to mix and layer, which isn't always the case with powder eyeshadow. Rating: 5/5. Liquid eye shadow is the best thing since sliced bread. It is so easy to use! I love this deep, sparkling brown because it can be worn almost simply for a small glitter topper or layered for more coverage and pigment. With this stuff you can really play a full disco ball. When layering, I want to make sure that the product dries to a slightly sticky consistency between runs for a few seconds so that the liquid can easily stick to existing layers. Rating: 4/5. I am a liquid eyeliner, so I tend to judge it pretty hard. This liner is very nice. I decided to try the brown instead of my usual black and was not disappointed. Even if it's not the darkest brown in the world, it still works. The formula glides so smoothly on the eyelids and the ultra-thin box tip provides super-precise lines that I love. My only criticism is that it dries to a glossy finish, and I usually prefer a matte finish. Rating: 3/5. This mascara is really popular with everyone I've ever spoken to, so I expected to love it very much. When I apply it, I love how it lengthens and defines my eyelashes. But at the end of the day I notice some ink under my eyes. This could be a result of my concealer and maybe a mascara foundation would help keep this product in place, but that's not a precaution I want to take every day. Rating: 4/5. Ok, this stick is magical. I love the sheer, natural sheen that it gives with the smallest amount of product. My only complaint is that you can't apply it straight to your face from the pen without smearing the rest of your makeup. It is definitely better to put it on our finger or a brush first. Rating: 6/5. I have an important announcement: this is officially my favorite lip gloss! It is the perfect nude shine for brown girls. I wear it on slightly moist lips and don't have to put it on the lipstick or use a lipstick to get a perfectly opaque, glossy, bare lip. It's thick, but not overly sticky, and I can drink my morning tea without it coming off completely. I honestly can't remember the last time I was so excited about a lip gloss – I recommend everyone to buy a multiple. Rating: 4/5. This is a really nice foundation, and I say that as someone who almost always prefers a really buildable formula with full coverage. The texture is so light and silky that it blends effortlessly into my hydrated skin. I was also really surprised by the fact that it literally didn't make it. So the brand is not joking. The only reason I don't give it a full five star is that it is light rather than medium coverage (as the brand heralds), and it's not super buildable. This first layer offers about as much coverage as you will get! As someone with a bit of acne scars and pigmentation, I really had to rely on concealer to fix problems where I wanted more camouflage. That is, this provided a feather-light, even and luminous basis. I started applying it with my fingers and then went in with my beauty blender that worked perfectly. Rating: 4/5. If you are a fan of stick concealers, you will go crazy for it. I used to be a die-hard stick girl, but in recent years I've been interested in less creamy formulas and easy-to-use doe-foot applicators. But this one could convert me back! After a little trial and error (fingers, brushes, etc.), I found that the best way to apply this is definitely to paint it wherever you want coverage. (For me, that was under my eyes, around my chin, under my cheekbones, where I have some pigmentation, and touched my T-zone.) Then I went in with a slightly damp blender and smoothed and mixed everything out. It's a really creamy and malleable formula as opposed to so many stick concealers that can be too sticky or too chalky – one extreme or another. The coverage is also phenomenal and I was able to use two different shades to cover the areas where the foundation didn't quite do the trick. However, I will say … I think this concealer works a lot better on the face than under the eyes – it was just a little too creamy and wrinkled for my taste! Rating: 3/5. I devote myself so much to my normal powder routine (MACs Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, where I get oily and want a highlight on my face, and Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eye) and am always resistant to trying new formulas. Overall, I'm pretty much over it. It definitely helped dampen the shine where I felt like I was getting greasy later in the day, but I felt that my foundation started to wrinkle (where it wasn't before!) And from the scary second skin of the Foundation was removed. how done. Next time, I would honestly probably not. Rating: 5.5 / 5. Okay. I love this bronzer. This is exciting because I was not impressed by the last formulas I experimented with. The color looks super natural and flatters (despite the darkness in the pan!) And I couldn't believe how well it mixed. Seriously, it melts and polishes with the lightness of the cream in your skin and I couldn't get over how easy it was to shape and warm my face. I also appreciated the glossy matte finish that kept me from looking like a shimmering disco ball, but not too flat or dusty. I am overjoyed. Rating: 5/5. This gel cream highlighter is very much loved by makeup artists and celebrities, and as a great highlighter enthusiast, it has been on my list of things to try for a while and I am so excited that it meets my super high expectations Has . Some creamy highlighters look way too opaque and donut glaze-like for my taste, but Dew You (a light golden peach shade) was the perfect way to highlight my cheekbones, Cupid's arch, and other areas that I like to lighten my shin and bridge of the nose. It contains great ingredients like coconut water and provitamin B5 and my skin had the perfect level of moist shine. (Which, by the way, never became disco ball!) A little goes a long way, and I found that the easiest way to apply it was to pump a little bit onto the back of my hand, dip my beauty blender and then dab it off my face where I wanted a spotlight. So diffuse and pretty. Rating: 4/5. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I pretty much always stick to liquid or cream-colored eyeshadows. In my opinion they are much quicker and less fussy to use. In addition, I don't use dark or dramatic tones and prefer a warm, semi-sparkling atmosphere in my eyes. This formula does the trick! The liquid formula glides so well and honestly that you don't even have to really diffuse or mix. (But you can be completely without any problems.) I started with Gleam Girl, a light pink gold, and then used Shimmy Dip, a light gold, on the inner corners. I was a little taken aback that they didn't seem to overlap so well, and the main reason I give these four instead of five stars is that when you start layering too much, you start lifting. Overall, I think it's great how shimmering and natural this formula is. It's pretty foolproof and captures the light in the most beautiful way. Rating: 4/5. I pretty much only use black liquid eyeliner, so I was so excited when Marc Jacobs launched a glossy iteration of their cult-loved highlighter gel eye crayons with liquid gel liner. The colors are great (Blacquer is perfection) and the formula doesn't move. I'll say I wish this was a pen in terms of packaging – true story, I put it on my parents' white carpet when I was home over the holidays and it's still a painful subject – but it does the job and it is definitely a favorite of mine in the field of liquid eyeliner. Not to mention that there are so many shades and some even have breathtaking metallic surfaces. I love to shift it up but for the day I always go with Blacquer (which I'm wearing here) or Mo & # 39; Cha, which is dark brown. Rating: 3/5. So I used the Velvet Primer and the Velvet Noir Mascara and I will say immediately that I prefer this mascara alone better than with the primer. If you like mascara primer, you'll probably like it – it provides decent length, separation, and strong curl, but I just prefer the mascara to look more natural, longer, and feathered! If you like really black, really plump eyelashes with a decent amount of curls, this is a great option. Rating: 6/5. Well, I officially have a new favorite lipstick. I'm just talking about a plump, pouting lip, and frankly, when I defined my lips with this pen, it looked like I just got a hint of filler. (Feel free to hate me, but that's what I look like!) It stayed there all day (even after a few cups of coffee, lots of water, and a messy sweet green salad, no touch-ups are necessary), and it slides and counts like liquid velvet. I was also delighted that this shade was almost exactly the shade of my natural lip color, which I always strive for – a trick by the make-up artis icon Kevyn Aucoin! Rating: 5/5. Almost every celebrity I've interviewed has described Marc Jacobs lipsticks as a must-have in his pocket, and I have to agree that the formula and colors are not. I decided to match my lipstick to my liner (and as I said, basically the natural color of my lips since I went to the office for the day. Rating: 5/5. I REALLY like highlighting the center of my lips with a color that's a little lighter and a little rosier. (It creates the illusion of a fuller and pouting lip!)
