Today I really wanted to use the Raw Beauty Kristi Colourpop collab but I also really wanted to use the second Morphe Jaclyn Hill collab. Fortunately, the two compliment each other!
I pulled crease colors from the Jaclyn Hill palette and the lower lash line color.f
From the Colourpop palette, I pulled darker colors to add depth to the look and the lid colors.
I wanted to blend Evergreen into West Coast to the out end but West Coast was too yellow gold for what I wanted to i layered Evergreen on top instead.
Other products used:
WetNWild Photofocus foundation dewy in Golden Beige. I usually go for matte but this has the perfect satin finish, not dewy at all!
Maybelline age rewind in 120 light. I used to really like this but lately it’s been feeling dry on my skin
Marc Jacobs Finish Line powder
Doll 10 Popstar Peach. I usually use this under powder but I forgot and figured I’d try it over. I didn’t notice any affect on my foundation but it made for a much brighter blush when I layered a powder over it. This was a Jen Phelps, on YouTube, recommendation and it’s hands down one of the best formulas. In not sure how I feel about the scent though. It’s a nice, yummy vanilla but it feels weird applying it to my face. I haven’t noticed it affecting my skin though
WetNWild Mellow Wine blush over to set (can skip two blushes but I don’t)
Smashbox Cali Contour palette for bronzer/contour and highlight. I like but don’t love. I want to love this palette so I keep it around
Urban Decay Horchata lipstick – the vice lipsticks were reformulated and the new ones are some of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I’ve tried
WetNWild Brow Sessive in Medium Brown. This is $1.99 on Target’s website and Amazon. I’ve really been loving this pencil, it’s soft and blends is perfect for my needs – which is just to fill in and brush out
I received this LA Girl Cosmetics Jetsetter mascara free to test. I was excited to test this because I’m all about inexpensive mascara, regular price this is $7US at Ulta and the brand goes on sale fairly often.
The key benefits claimed are:
Buildable, smudge-proof, paraben free formula
Sky high lift and length
Water and flake resistant
In my experience the formula is not buildable nor does it provide any kind of lifting or length.
To get my lashes to look as shown in the pictures, I had to apply three coats of mascara. I would have done another layer to make them darker but on the third layer my lashes started to clump and look like spider legs. I waited until the mascara dried to brush through my lashes with a clean spoolie which made them less clumpy. Having done this I can attest that the mascara is not flakey.
I give this a three out of five stars and would not recommend it.
Have you tried this mascara? What are your thoughts?
