Review: Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation

20 Jan

Hello everyone! A stick foundation that I’ve been using lately and thought I should review it before it ends up in an empties post.

IMG_2311 IMG_2313 IMG_2314 IMG_2316

Description: A stick foundation with a oil control core to prevent oiliness from breaking through.

Review: I love the idea of just taking 1 minute to do my foundation and this product allows me to do that. I just swipe on the product and blend with a brush and I’m done. It had an interesting texture of a gel/cream and blended like a powder. The finish is a very dewy/glowy look which is great all year around I didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. Staying power was unfortunately only 4 hours and then it faded away the coverage is light-medium it covered some of my acne scars but not the new or deeply pigmented ones. The foundation glides on smoothly over the skin and I don’t notice any sort of oil control from the core. There is no scent and the packaging makes it easy to bring it along for touch ups throughout the day. What sucks about this foundation is that there is only 9g of product in it a regular foundation give at least 30g of product so if you are planning on purchasing this note the difference in the amount of foundation you receive. Overall, a quick and easy foundation for those who don’t have a lot of time and not so finnick-y skin.

Cost: $8-10 @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? This is a very convenient/easy product to use but for those with extremely oily skin it might not be the best.

Beauty Stash: Eyes – Eyebrows, Mascara and False Eyelashes

6 Sep

Hello everyone! An all together post today to feature what is stated above. TO be honest these are things that I don’t use too much on a daily basis and when I do it’s one at a time… I should really decrease the amount of products that I have for each section.

Mascara: (Please note that all of these are new mascaras so they are still “fresh”, all the shades are in black and I crossed out the ones that I have finished)

IMG_2006

– Benefit They’re real! sample, Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes, Maybelline MegaPlush, Tarte Lights,Camera, Lashes sample, Fairy Drops Las Vegas Edition, Fairy Drops Mascara Base, Maybelline The Falsies Flared, Revlon Lash Potion, Covergirl Lashblast Fusion, Lashblast Covergirl Lashblast Luxe, Maybelline The Rocket

Total: 9 products

False Eyelashes

IMG_1971 IMG_1974

From various shops: Mainly Daiso lashes, All of the Ardell + Cirque du Soleil’s lashes, Paperself Paperlashes 2 pairs, Duo Lash adhesive

Total = … can’t really put a total on the number of lashes that I have.

Eyebrows:

IMG_2016

Integrate Eyebrow Powder and Etude House Drawing Eyebrows Retractable pencil in Grey Brown

Total = 2 products

So I can see where my prorities are when it comes to these products. I don’t use false eyelashes too much because they require more time in the morning than anything so I leave them for special occasions. But I would like to reduce the amount of unopened mascaras that I have right now. 9 products is a lot when I only use one at a time. I wonder if I can actually do a mascara buying ban… but they release newer cooler ones every few months!

Ah well, I do want to decrease my brow products to one because I only need one brow product and I like powder better because it does last longer than pencil. I have to repurchase my pencil every 4 months compared to 9 months for powder brow products. I do want to try a cooler tone eyebrow powder but I will only purchase it when I run out of the brow products.

This is a good way for me to see what I have and what I would like to decrease so in my case reduce mascara and attempt to find a new brow product after completing my current stash.
