REVIEW: L.A GIRL PRO CONCEAL COLOR CORRECTORS



WHAT L.A GIRL SAYS: Crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Provides complete, natural-looking coverage,evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes.This blendable and buildable formula provides the ultimate, customizable coverage. This must-have concealer includes a soft brush-tip for easy application.

-Camouflages the appearance of skin imperfections
-Evens out skin tone
-Covers dark circles
-Minimizes fine lines
-Provides customizable coverage


DAZZLEBEAUTIE: Color correcting is great but first you have to know if you need it and how to use it. If you have dark circles under your eyes, spots, redness and discoloration, then you probably do. Diff colors neutralize other colors especially skin related problems.

Orange concealers  cancel out darkness. This can be seen under the eyes after applying foundation on dark circles. This usually leaves a grey cast and does not look great guys. Use this to help cancel out darkness and spots.

Green concealers cancel out redness on the face from pimples or irritation.Used to neutralize red tones on the skin. Use this for covering blemishes, zits, red blotches

Yellow concealers cancel out purple.Used to conceal bluish bruises, under-eye circles and mild red tones on the face. 

Now i have gotten that out of the way, i can say i really like the LA Girl color correcting shades. The formula is same as the regular concealers, they go on great and they really cover up discoloration and redness. This is very opaque and does not budge when you blend it in propoerly. I must say the orange color can be a little too strong for me but i use this with a very light hand. My overall makeup looks flawless and my under eye circles don't pop out anymore. I now use less concealers under my eyes and haven't had that cakey under eye makeup thanks to this.

WHERE TO BUY: BEAUTYKINK
PRICE: N1200

Do you use this? How well do you like it? Let me know what you think guys.

REVIEW: ELF BAKED HIGHLIGHTER IN BLUSH GEMS

Hi Guys,

I apologize for the slow posting these days. I have been extremely caught up with life but i'm not going anywhere. So have we noticed how Highlighters are suddenly all the rage now? The GLOW life is a very serious business o!! I have been a long time faithful to my MAC Gold deposit but all these gorgeous new highlighters from different companies keep catching my eye. BUT THOSE PRICES?? From N6K-12K?? For a Highlight? I keep wondering when  highlighters became more expensive than foundations? Anyway i Digress... Moving on...

I have a couple decent highlighters and i came across a review on the ELF Baked highlighters. There are three in the collection and i thought the one called 'BLUSH GEMS" was right up my alley so i picked it up.

WHAT ELF SAYS: Create a radiant glow with this illuminating powder that highlights the skin with a sheer wash of shimmering color. Infused with Vitamin E, Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. The long-lasting baked shimmering color can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: This color is a shimmery icy rose gold with pink tones. The packaging is very cute and sturdy. It is little but the product will last you a long time. I noticed there was no fallout with this and no chunky glitter . I  had no problems with the color showing up beautifully on the places in placed it. What i like to do is spray my fan brush or flat powder brush with some face setting spray before applying this.It really makes the product pop more. I have been using this for a few weeks now and i am really impressed with it. The staying power is also great. You don't have to worry about your highlight not blinding after a few hours! HAAA :D Oh and LADIES!!! Pls go easy with your highlighting oo. We don't want to end up looking like a Disco Ball.That is not the plan. A fan brush is your best friend. :D

Hope you liked my review guys. If you are looking for a great highlight without breaking the bank this is your bestie!! ;) 

Thanks for Stopping by!!

REVIEW: NYX INTENSE BUTTER GLOSS

DEEP PLUM
HOT PINK
MAUVE PURPLE
DEEP BEIGE
Hello Guys!

I saw these lip glosses on Instagram and i just had to get some. I was super impressed. I was most interested in the shade Tres Leches which is a gorgeous pinky nude which i was quickly obsessed with and i still haven't been able to get my handson. I have been hunting these down for a few weeks and i was able to get my hands on four of the twelve colors available.

WHAT NYX SAYS: Smother your lips with a silky gloss bursting with color! Our Intense Butter Gloss has the same mouth-watering texture and scent of the original formula with even more color payoff in 12 new delectable shades.

DAZZLE BEAUTIE: I absolutely love this product. It's just like the NYX Butter glosses which were a smash hit but with a lot more pigment. The color payoff is amazing and it feels so soft on the lips.  These lip glosses are easy to apply, not patchy and are super long lasting. The colors are just super bright and gives off an amazing shine.You can definitely wear this alone as one swipe will color your lips even if they are super dark. It smells amazing and the packaging is very handy. Similar to the butter glosses but with a metallic screw cap top. It also doesn't hurt that the names are super cute too. LOL

I cannot say enough great things about these. I AM IN LOOOOOVE!!!!'They are all pretty and i cant wait to get Tres Leches(I'M A NUDE FREAK), Napoleon, Sorbet and Berry Strudel.

WHERE TO BUY: I got 3 of these from KONGA and Chocolate Crepe from ACCESSORIESNG.

PRICE: N2500

REVIEW: JCAT ROCKIN THE NIGHT GLITTER

Hi Guys,

I have been wanting to step up my glitter game and i found some i really liked on MYMAKEUPNG . I like to wear glitter for nice sparkly looks but i never found a brand i really liked. I have tried the magnolia glitter but it was so chunky and i just didn't like the feel on my eyes.

Up until now, i had never heard of the brand JCAT until i stumbled on it on MYMAKEUPNG website. I did my little research and to my surprise they are a pretty cool makeup company with a full line of products. 

WHAT JCAT SAYS: Add a touch of sparkle to your look with the Sparkling Powder available in 36 must have shades! Use for those dazzling occasions where your goal is to shine amongst the crowd. Get the perfect amount of sparkle using clean fingers or a dry (or wet) eye shadow brush. 
WITH FLASH
UNDER SUNLIGHT
I picked up four shades:

SP210 - BONDI BLACK- Black with multi color glitter. This is the best black glitter i have ever come across. 

SP212 - LION SILVER-Silver with multi color glitter.

SP206 - IRIS INDIGO- Purple with blue green iridescent glitter.

SP207 - TANGERINE- Orange with green and gold glitter.

This glitters are just so pretty and easy to work with. I like the packaging because there is minimal spilling when you open the lid and you can control the amount of glitter you need. It was easy to apply and it wasn't too chunky. One thing i noticed is that this glitter is  not too over powering on the lids. It can be worn in the day time even though i'm not too big on wearing heavy glitter during the daytime . Well unless you are going for a wedding or a super party... ROCK ON!!

The price is great for the quantity and quality too and overall i am loving this product. I can't wait to create some fun looks with these and pickup some more colors.

WHERE TO BUY: MYMAKEUPNG
PRICE: N750

FOTD: NILLIONAIRE X STYLED IN SEPIA MAKEUP LOOK

Hi Guys,

I did this look over the holiday to step out for a little get together. I used my new and fave colour pop eye shadow of the bunch i purchased. I went for a subtle look with nude lips and i tried out the new strobbing technique. I really like it and i must say this technique is for people like me who are not really big on an overly sculpted face.

On the lips, i applied Mac Styled in Sepia which is a matte dirty cement beige color. I noticed this color is getting really popular in the liquid lipstick community and i was tempted to get one but i hardly ever wear this so... SKIP!! For the last three pics i applied MAC Boy Bait creme sheen glass untop for some shine. Hope you all like the look.
