As you have all probably guessed by now, I'm OBSESSED with Sigma Beauty Eye Shadows!! If you didn't catch my Blog titled Elegant Sugar Plum Fairy then you should check it out now. It features another one of my makeup looks using my absolute FAVORITE Sigma eye shadow 'Eylsees' as well as my full review on Sigma Beauty Eye Shadows. :-) ;-)
Now let's talk about this GORGEOUS Lipstick! ;-) It's M.A.C Limited Edition (Online Exclusive) inspired after Icon Mariah Carey, launched December 2015. Named 'All I Want' and it's a gorgeous Champagne Shimmer, Frost Lipstick. You can get yours now while they still carry them for $17 EA (Pro Discount Available) SHOP HERE
(I must add I started my Freelance position for M.A.C Cosmetics on 2/1/16, and that's because I truly believe in the products and use them on myself as well as my clients.)
Finally the Thumbs Down products. In order of appearance. First up, NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Face Primer. I'm sad to report that this made my skin breakout like crazy. :-( I do have pretty sensitive skin though so maybe someone without sensitive skin wouldn't have this reaction. Otherwise I actually really liked this product and would recommend it to anyone without sensitive skin to try out. I think it really helped hold my makeup all day.
And last, the bummer of all bummers, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara isn't even better than my worst Ex! Hahaa :D :D :D WTF, I don't get the hype at all!?!! :-/ The brush/wand is an awkward shape and I really don't like it! I can't imagine who would. Plus I felt like the mascara itself was clumpy and/or cakey. I don't know, maybe it's just not for me; but at $23 a tube and being my beloved Too Faced brand, I was just really expecting much more! I'll be sticking with my Maybelline Mascara yet again! :-) ;-) If you'd like to find out my favorite mascaras then check out my mascara blog a few posts back. ;-)
