Makeup Disappointment: Crown Brush Professional Contouring Palette

Crown-Brush-Professional-Contouring-Palette-2

Well guys, I’m sorry to say it, but I’ve got a bit of a disappointing product review for you. I am one of those people that buys products that are so highly reviewed that sometimes I like to make a little bit of a gamble and just go for something that i may never have bought otherwise. This product is one of those, and I hate to say I was so disappointed that I gave this palette away. I purchased this product as one of ipsy’s deals where they give you a product at a serious discount (I only paid $20), and after it sitting in my drawer for a few months, I finally gave it to my best friend who would get far more use out of it than I would. The Crown Brush Professional Contouring Palette is honestly one of the most disappointing products I have purchased, but like most products, it does have both its pros and cons, so keep reading to find out why: Continue reading

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

 

Urban-Decay-Naked-Skin-ConcealorHello lovelies and Happy Wednesday to all of you! I was hoping to have my Birchbox vs. Ipsy ready to share with all of today, but alas, the beauty gods (and impending weather) have decided to not have my bag in my hands yet. It is still on the way to my house, and I am hoping that everyone who touches it cherishes it as much as I do. So, instead of that, I have another makeup review for you all today. In conjunction with my Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation, I have been using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and quite frankly I must say that I am in love. It is one of the few concealers that I have had the pleasure of using that not only is high coverage, but doesn’t make your skin feel like it has a seven layer red velvet cake sitting on top of it, waiting to be devoured by me as an afternoon snack. But enough about cake, let’s move on to the pros and cons of this concealer.
