Why do foundations now have to have a name with 10 words in it??? The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is definitely no exception! I picked this up in the shade 5W1 Bronze to test out. As a new addition to the Double Wear line, it is supposed to give a lightweight but long lasting coverage. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that this sounds right up my alley! I tested this out for you in the video below, so make sure to watch that. If you are short on time and want to quickly know what I thought of the foundation, check out my pros and cons below.
So about 2 weeks ago, I decided to do a first impression video for the new Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation. Because I take foreverrrrrr to edit my videos, I now have a much better idea of how I like this foundation. Check out the video below for my initial thoughts. Below that I’ll give you a rundown of the pros and cons of this foundation!
The drugstore has been on fire lately with the new releases! All the major brands have been coming out with new stuff and there have been a few items to pique my interest. I initially planned on separately reviewing all the items I picked up, but I decided to put them together in the form of a video because it was easier for me and I figured it may be more helpful for you! Don’t worry, I will eventually get back to writing blog posts independent of my videos, but for now I hope you enjoy the videos!
Have you checked out any of the new drugstore releases? Were they hits or misses?
I love trying new foundations and letting you all know about them! Today, the foundation that I reviewed is the new MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC45. I really wanted to try this one out because it claimed to be lightweight, long wearing, and waterproof. If you would like to see how it lived up to those claims, check out the video below!
Would you like me to do some sort of foundation round-up where I talk about my foundation collection? If so, leave me a comment as to how you would like to see that done!
Remember my “Weekly Hit or Miss” posts? It was one of my favorite types of posts so I’m disappointed that I didn’t keep up with it. Now, I will try to do them on Mondays because that seems to be a better time for me to make sure I get it done. It’s not that I’m not trying products, but I just never seem to get pictures and posts done by Friday. Hopefully I can better keep up with it this time!
This past week I have been trying out a new mascara that Covergirl sent to me to try (see full disclosure HERE), the Super Sizer Mascara. I’m not usually a fan of Covergirl mascaras, not because they are bad, I just am never attracted to them. Keep reading to find out if the Super Sizer Mascara was a hit or miss for me!
NARS recently released a new foundation, the All Day Luminous Weightless foundation. I decided to try it in the shade Cadiz, which is also my shade in the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. With this foundation, NARS promises full & natural looking coverage that lasts up to 16 hours. Not only that, but they also claim that the foundation will do this with only 1 drop and still have a lightweight feel on the skin. I’ve been testing this foundation out for about 2 weeks and I am ready to share my thoughts with you so if you’re interested, keep reading.
Every year, Sephora teams up with the color experts, Pantone, to create beauty products featuring the Color of the Year. The Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala, “an earthy red wine”. When I saw the collection they were coming out with, I was immediately drawn to the nude lip collection pictured above. Keep reading to see if the Marsala Layering Lip Collection lived up to my expectations.
In my most recent haul, I picked up a new foundation, Lancome Nude Miracle. This foundation is a Sephora exclusive (for now at least) that promises a weightless feel and bare-matte finish. It is one of the new liquid to powder foundations that it seems like all the brands are starting to come out with. If you would like to see how it looks and find out my initial thoughts, check out the video below!
