Makeup Product Fails

For the most part the makeup that I have used is great and I love it but every once in a while I have a product that does not meet my expectations!  Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I still had in my makeup drawer that I never reach for because I simply did not like them.

Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca | Stila

I’ll be completely honest, it took me a long time to get into the liquid lipstick scene!! I know, I know, it’s crazy, but the reason for that is because I didn’t really know which brand to try and I was a bit intimidate by the whole thing.  While I did try a liquid lipstick a few years ago, it wasn’t too popular and I didn’t wear it much since the shade was dark and  at that time I was still getting used to deeper shades.  Anyway, I finally tried a liquid lipstick in August or September since it came my Birchbox.

I really loved the lipstick I had received, which was the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina by Stila.  I decided to do a little bit of browsing to see which color I would get next.  Two shades caught my attention: Ricco and Bacca.  I wanted to see how they each compared to each other so I googled swatches.  In my search, I stumbled upon a post which said that while they loved the shade for Bacca, they didn’t really like the application.

Because of that, I decided I would buy Ricco, but when I saw Bacca in person, I just had to have it.  I took a chance and decided to buy the lipstick even if I had heard negative comments on it.  I’ve had this lipstick now for about 2-3 months.  Keep reading to find out if it indeed sucked or if it exceeded my expectations!!

NYX Micro Brow Pencil

Eyebrows are one of the most important things when it come to doing my makeup so when I ran out of my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, I obviously had to restock.  Because I was still not financially stable at this time, I looked around for a good dupe.  NYX is one of my go-to drugstore brands so I was excited to see that they had an eyebrow pencil similar to the Brow Wiz.  I was not sure how I felt about the pencil at first but a gave it a couple a chances before I decided how to feel about it.  Keep reading to see if this pencil is a hit or miss! Enjoy!

Tone correcting is something has become more popular, so it is no surprise that there are more tone correctors out in the market.  I am a newbie to the tone correcting world but I really wanted to try it out and see if it actually works.  Because I wanted to experiment with it, I decided to buy the $3 Tone Correcting Powder by e.l.f.  Cosmetics.

Everyday Makeup Routine

We all have our go to makeup routine that is quick and easy for everyday wear.  Mine has started to change a bit, at least in the eye area.  This makeup routine is what I will normally wear to work because it takes out the thinking and I get more time in bed! I also don’t normally wear makeup days that I am not doing anything, unless I feel bored.

So let’s get right in to my everyday makeup routine!

My face makeup tends to be the same no matter what, I really like my foundation so I don’t feel the need to wear a different one on an everyday basis.   Continue reading

Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeliner is one of the first kinds of makeup I ever used so I am really picky when it comes to it.  I really like eyeliners but there are few that I actually end up loving.  While I am picky, I really do like to try them out to see if I find that is better than the one I use currently.  So when I saw that I got the Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner in my January Birchbox, I was excited!

I have been using it for about a month now so I decided to share my thoughts on this liquid liner.  Keep reading to see whether or not it made it the small list of liners that I love. Enjoy!

Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner

I had actually never used a fat liquid liner in my life before because I honestly didn’t see the point to a fat liner, I just thought it would give me a big line and I’m not really into that.  I few weeks before I got the liner though, I saw someone use a fat liner and it kind of made me want to try it out.  I was really excited to try this eyeliner out but also scared since I was only used to my slanted eyeliner.

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight

This is probably my third time taking about the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight but I honestly fell in love with this product!!  I had never tried a Clinique product and while I have heard good things over the brand, I never really felt the need to use their products, that is until now!!

So, while you already know that I love this product, I wanted to review it more in depth so you can see why I love this product so much.  Enjoy!

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting HighlightClinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight

When I fist saw that it was a pink highlight shade, I was kind of scared that it wouldn’t look good on me.  I had tried a powdered pink highlight once and it only made my skin look dark, and kind of ridiculous because the highlight looked more like an eyeshadow.  I decided to try out the highlight either way and I absolutely loved the results!  It gives such a sweet glow that isn’t over the top.  It also blends into the skin super easy and smooth.  I think it looks great on my skin tone and it fits me better during this season because my skin tone lighter.

Other than making my skin look amazing, I like the packaging because you really only need a few glides on your face to get a nice glow which really doesn’t use up much product so it will definitely last a good time.

The highlight retails at $22, which is a pretty good price since other highlighters cost a bit more than this one.  I would definitely  purchase this highlighter after I use up the one I got in my Play! by Sephora box.

So that was my short, but much loved, review of my favorite highlighter right now.

Have you tried the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight?
