Cover Fx Monochromatic Bronzer Duo

bronzer1

If you know me, then you know that bronzers are my favorite makeup product. I love a good bronzed glow year round. I especially love shimmery and satin bronzers so when Cover Fx recently launched their monochromatic blush and bronzer duos, I knew I had to pick one up.

They released several blush shades and two bronzer shades. I picked up the lighter bronzer in the shade Sunkissed. The left side is a satin bronzer and the right side is a stunning, shimmery bronzer. I’ve used it twice now and each time I take my brush and tap into both sides. I have no tried each side by itself but I probably wouldn’t wear them individually anyway.

The formula blends beautifully and doesn’t look red on my face. It’s a nice neutral bronzer which is ideal for me because I have Rosacea on my cheeks. I try to stay away from very warm, redish bronzers since I already have a lot of redness on my cheeks.

I would definitely recommend this bronzer and I really want to try one of the blushes now that I know I love the bronzer.

Did you pick one of these up or want to? What do you think?

Spring Makeup Wishlist

I felt like this entire winter I have been in a makeup rut. I barley bought any makeup and my day to day looks were minimal to no makeup. Now that it’s March and technically kind of, almost Spring, I am more inspired and excited to get back out in the makeup game and pick up these beauties listed below.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk
charlotte_tilbury_lips_lipstick_matte_revolution_pillow_talk
CT Matte Revolution lipsticks are one of my favorite formulas. I have the shade Bond Girl and I’ve been wanting to get another. Pillow Talk is the most popular shade so I feel like that’s a perfect next purchase.

Ofra Cosmetics Rodeo Drive Highlighter

Although this highlighter is not new by any means, it’s a cult favorite that has been raved about online for years. I have always wanted to try it but never got around to it. I think this Spring I am finally going to purchase.

Jouer Cosmetics Bouquet D’Amour Six Shade Blush Palette
JOCO0238F_1_L
Jouer is a brand that I have been so intrigued by. I recently bought one of their highlighters and I love it. I have heard amazing things about their blushes and this palette looks perfect for Spring and Summer.

Hourglass Caution™ Extreme Lash Mascara

I am always on the hunt for an amazing mascara. I have tried so many and still only have one absolute favorite. I heard great things about the Hourglass Caution mascara and Hourglass is one of my favorite beauty brands.

BH Cosmetics Brillance Bronzer

2537911

Bronzers are my favorite makeup product, so I am always eager to expand my collection. I find that some of my favorite bronzers are my drugstore or inexpensive ones. BH Cosmetics is an affordable brand and their Brillance Bronzer seems like the exact satin finish that I like.

BECCA x Khloé Kardashian & Malika Haqq Glow Letters
BC_98895_800x800_0
I have to admit that the packaging on the Glow Letters is what first drew me in. A few brands have done these “rock” type highlighters like Physicians Formula and Guerlain. I have never tried anything like this, so all the more I’m curious.

What’s on your Spring makeup wishlist?

July Favorites

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Endless Bronze & Glow
BC_92576_800x800_3
This highlighter has quickly become my favorite highlighter ever. It includes three shades, two highlighters and a bronzer. I swirl my brush through the whole pan and it gives me the most incredible, warm glow. It looks wet on my skin and it doesn’t accentuate texture. Some people were concerned that the bronzer would mix with the highlight and look weird. I can tell you, it doesn’t do that at all. I don’t want to say the bronzer get’s lost on your face, but the product definitely shows up as a true highlight.

Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser

bee

Farmacy skincare is my favorite skincare line. After trying some of their products and loving them, I made it my mission to try more. I had been using my Juice Beauty face cleanser and I felt like my skin was building up an immunity to it. I don’t know if you ever notice that after you use a product for so long, it seems to stop working. That may just be me. The Clean Bee cleanser is so light and clean. Farmacy uses all natural ingredients so I know my skin isn’t going to get irritated. This leaves my face feeling refreshed and hydrated.

Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip in the shades Ocean Ave and Vitamin Sea

lips

The Ultra Blotted Lip formula from Colourpop is my favorite lip formula ever. I hate the feeling of lipstick on my lips. I have always been a chapstick or lip balm kind of girl. However, I love putting some color on my lips. This formula is like nothing else. I would describe the finish as if you had a ice pop and it stained your lips. It’s not an actual lip stain, it’s still considered a liquid lipstick, but the formula is so light and velvety. You have to try it for yourself. These two knew shades are stunning! The red shade, Ocean Ave, makes my lips look so healthy and cherry stained. Vitamin Sea is a beautiful warm nude and also makes my lips look so healthy.

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan in the shade Tantric 102
2
This bronzer is something special. It would say it’s like a smoothing powder and bronzer in one. It is expensive, but I definitely notice it looks different on my skin than my other bronzers. I got the darker shade because I currently have a tan. I wish Marc would release more shades because this shade is almost still too light for me.

Sephora Summer Wish List

Farmacy Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy™
BRIGHT_ON_LgStraightSmearProd_041618.R3_RGB2000_2000x
Farmacy has become my favorite skincare brand, so when I found out they were releasing a new mask, I knew I had to get it. This Vitamin C mask detoxes your face removing impurities. Plus, it changes colors which is pretty fun.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer
38723532_027_b
Now that it’s Summer, I want to get into using more cream products. I have heard amazing things about this product and I think it’s a perfect way to start. You get a ton of product in this stick and it’s creamy and easy to blend.

Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara
Captura-de-Tela-2018-04-17-às-15.35.56-620x341
Another product from Milk I have to try is the new Kush mascara. This mascara made quite the buzz on social media because of well, it’s name. The mascara is formulated with cannabis oil which allows for the creamy, nourishing formula.

Becca Be a Light Face Palette
Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 8.45.48 PM
Becca makes some of my favorite face products. I use their First Light Primer almost everyday along with their bronzer and highlighter. When I saw this new palette release, I was very intrigued. The product looks so beautiful and I like how you can get your entire face done in one palette. This palette contains a brightening powder, blur powder, blush and contour that you can also use as a bronzer.

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation
peach2
I usually never try foundations labeled as “matte” but this one has caught my eye. This foundation didn’t create too much of a buzz when it released with the Too Faced Peaches n’ Cream collection. For some reason, now it’s becoming popular and a lot of beauty influencers are talking and raving about it. I’m interested to see what a “comfort matte” is. I wonder if it will be more hydrating than a regular matte foundation.

Cruelty Free Drugstore Makeup Wish List

It’s been a hot minute since I have bought drugstore makeup. It’s difficult to find cruelty free makeup at the drug store, because the majority of the brands aren’t cruelty free. Here is my list of products I have on my wish list and the majority of these you can get at Ulta.

Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation

6054
Foundation sticks are my absolute favorite. It seems like not a lot of people enjoy them as much as liquid foundations but for me, they apply and look so much better on my skin. My two favorite stick foundations are the Tarte Clay Stick and the Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation. This is a new product to Makeup Revolution and all the reviews I’ve seen so far have been great. Definitely need to try this.

Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Foundation

NI-37179_BBd_FCE_BTL_Liquid_Porcelain_Frnt_1005_21-04-17-1528

After sorting through my makeup collection, I noticed that I am lacking in foundations. Now that it’s becoming Summer, my skin color changes, so I need to buy some darker foundations. The Burt’s Bees foundation is another one I’d love to try. I have been super impressed with the Burt’s Bees makeup I have tried so far. Their blushes are amazing. Can’t wait to try this.

Flower Beauty Light Illusion Liquid Foundation
flower_li_foundation_m3_classic_tan_1
The last drug store foundation on my wishlist is the Flower Beauty Light Illusion. I haven’t tried many products from Flower Beauty, but I have heard good things about this foundation and I love a dewy foundation.

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour

To go with the Makeup Revolution stick foundation, I want to try their new concealer. People have been comparing this to the Tarte Shape Tape because it has a similar doe foot applicator. I want to test out if it’s similar. However, I’m actually hoping it’s a little less full coverage than the Shape Tape. In the Summer, I tend to like my makeup to look more natural because it’s too hot to be caked on with makeup.

Essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder
essence-polvos-brighten-up-banana-powder
Banana or yellowed toned powders are my favorite for setting my under eye concealer. I am currently using the Becca Hydra Mist powder which I love, but I notice it doesn’t do a great job at brightening. Can’t wait to try this powder, plus it’s only $4.99.

Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder
essence-sun-club-polvo-bronceador-mate-gran-tamano-02-morenas-piel-oscura-1-27327
Bronzers are my favorite makeup product so I am always looking to add more to my collection. I usually gravitate towards glowy bronzers so I don’t have a lot of matte bronzers. One of my favorite beauty Youtubers, Nicole Renee raves about this so I’m excited to see if I like it.

Milani Bold Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
1_1_8_1_3358977
I have never tried Milani’s eyeshadows and this new palette looks very promising. I love how high quality this looks and I like that it’s a good neutral palette with a mix of mattes and metallics. This is great for everyday work makeup. I am excited to try Milani’s formula but the only downside is I don’t think you can get these in store.

Bronzed

Bronzer is my favorite makeup product. If I am doing my makeup for work, dinner, whatever, I always apply bronzer. I love matte and shimmer bronzers, especially layered on top of each other. Here’s some beautiful bronzed makeup inspiration along with my favorite bronzers at the bottom!
