ELF Blush Brush


You can’t beat ELF prices.  They have a few stand out products that everyone raves about, so I thought I’d pick up a brush.



NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation

This is a luminous powder foundation. While it does add coverage when used on top of a liquid foundation or BB cream, I was hoping for a little bit more.


Mac Vanilla Pigment


The ultimate inner corner highlight. Hands down.

I have talked about L’Oreal’s Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte here and named it as dupe for Mac’s Pigment in Vanilla.  Now, after having using Vanilla for a while, I can safely say I prefer it to the drugstore version.

If you already own Iced Latte I don’t think you need to run out and buy the Vanilla pigment, but L’Oreal’s version is $7.99 and you can now buy this to-go sized version of the Mac pigment for $10.  So for just a couple more dollars, you get a higher-end, more beautiful product.  Plus, you only need the tiniest amount of product so I think this small container will last you a lifetime.

I am personally a fan of a dramatic inner corner highlight, so I like a product like this that offers an intense shimmer and is really going to elevate the simplest of eye looks.  I think this pigment is too glittery to use under the brow bone, but it has become my favorite for the inner corner.  On days when I don’t use it, my eyes never look nearly as open or bright.
