YSL Touche Éclat Neutralizer Review

Hi loves!

I received the YSL Touche Éclat Neutralizer  in bisque to try [thanks Influenster)!

In recent months [thanks pregnancy] I have struggled to cover up the dark circles under my eyes.  This neutralizers goes on very smooth. Does not feel heavy and doesn’t cake on.

It works well with other makeup I already use and really does hide my dark circles.  I am really loving how lightweight the product feels and how easy it is to use! See below for a before [ekkkkk no makeup] and after.

Favorite Things: Best of Beauty

A new week and a new post about my favorite things.  This week I am covering some of my favorite beauty products.

favthings

Tarte [Foundation]:  I LOVE this foundation.  It has GREAT coverage and stays on ALL day without feeling heavy.

Tarte [Airbrush Foundation]: This powder is great with or with out base.  Gives great coverage.  I use it with BB cream only OR when I have a night out I use their foundation I mentioned above.

Make Up Forever [Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara]: This mascara gives my lashes lots of volume and umph! I also like the non-waterproof version and it works just as well! I got a sample and that is how I feel in love! The brush was a little bit of an adjustment but I really love it.

Mason Pearson Brush [Popular]: This brush was a huge splurge that I got for Christmas.  But almost a month later and I love it.  It really has helped my hair look healthier and fuller.  I also helps spread out your natural scalp oil!  I am WAY overdue for a haircut and actually have gotten compliments on how good my hair looks.  This brush is DEFINITELY worth the splurge.

EOS [Lip Balm]: This stuff is seriously addicting.  I can find it easily in my huge purse.  It stays on strong and really does relieve my chapped lips!

GLAMGLOW review

glamglowmud

I have been eyeing GLAMGLOW for awhile now and I was a lucky gal at Christmas and my husband ventured to Sephora and got it for me!  He was smart and got me a variety set.  Without further ado:

This set included:

thirstymud

THIRSTYMUD: A great moisturizer that feels amazing.  It does have a slight sunscreen smell to me but nothing overwhelming.  I like putting it on at night and letting it absorb.  You can also put on and rinse like a mask! supermud

SUPERMUD– When they say tingle they MEAN tingle and by tingle it is almost like a slight burning sensation.  Not painful or anything it actually felt good just not the tingle I expected.  It doesn’t tingle for long either and after that just a tightening sensation.  There are some pieces of green tea leaves so don’t let that weird you out.  It feels very good and afterwards I defiantly could see my face looking a little brighter. youthmud

YOUTH MUD:  This is a great general mud mask that really helps clean the skin and doesn’t make your skin feel super tight! I am also having a slight breakout and it seems to help when I use it as a spot treatment; especially since it doesn’t tingle or tighten. My pores seem smaller and my skin seems refreshed!

Overall, I think these are GREAT masks.  Since I have combination skin I enjoy them all depending on my mood and what my skin is needing.  I think also as the weather changes it will be great to be able to have a variety. Others might enjoy trying a combo set out before diving into to just one! Great investment and even though the jars I have are small a little goes a LONG way!

Beauty Reviews: BB and Eye Palette

If you follow my instagram you know I got a HUGE package from Sephora.  I am going to take some time and do a product review. I have been wanting to get a new eye shadow pallet and came across Urban Decay’s Ammo Palette.  I love the different colors so I went for it.

UD

Overall, I really LOVE this pallet! It came with “Eyeshadow Primer Potion”.  I tried the eyeshadow with and without. Without the color still looks really bold and stays on HOWEVER, there is some glitter fall out when you don’t use the potion which makes for a little interesting look on your face.  It isn’t crazy but enough to bother me.  But as long as you use the potion it seems to eliminate that!

BONUS**When you order from Sephora you receive a few free samples.  One of the samples I chose was Boscia BB Cream.

BB

I have tried a few BB creams and most make me break out and don’t have good coverage.  This Boscia BB Cream is a game changer…. it covers well enough for me to go and run errands and then for date nights I just throw on powder and my blush+eye makeup+ Lip and I am good to go! It feels light even with other makeup on top AND I have worn it three days and NO breakouts!
