Quite literally I am that; Freak obsessed. For those of my babies that live in the UK you are familiar with this scent, I am sure, if you are not, get familiar. As for my US babies, Illamasqua is not only one of the most amazing cosmetics lines (their pigments are to DIE for and I simply cannot WAIT to get my hands on their skin base foundation and their Hydra Veil) but their signature scent, FREAK, speaks volumes to me. The bottle is adorable and classy with the silver snail (I LIVE), the name is EVERYTHING, but the scent…..ohhhh the scent. It takes me ages to find perfume that I love and would wear every day, all day and now I have found a new one. It has finally come to the US at your local Sephora store. I URGE you to go check out the line and fall in love with it the way I have. Check it out at Sephora here and the site here. LIVE!
We all hate to frighten the one we love when we wake up bare faced and well, natural. Bare Minerals has come up with a solution; makeup to sleep in. Pure Transformation Night Treatment was formulated especially to sleep in with an “active soil complex” that is literally supposed to help us to wake up looking better than we did going to sleep! I would most definitely pay $60 for something that makes my skin brighter and the best part? Makes pores smaller. Yes, please! On the serious tip, you know the one you love, if they truly love you, doesn’t give two craps how you look in the morning 😉
I love love love plumping glosses but haaaate when it hurts (i’m side-eyeing you, Lip Venom and Lip Fusion XL). The best one that actually works? Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker. They had me at the name. I love when I get a product not knowing anything about it and it blows me away. I have told MANY a queen and lady about this gloss. They used to carry it at Target but now it’s at Sephora for $15. Check it here. GET SOME TODAY, you will looooove!
I am only sharing this with you because I love you all. This is the ONLY lip liner I will wear….EVER. Okay, when they discontinued it I just about went into panic mode, but Sephora did come through with a color very similar in their own brand for 7 bucks so i bought a few of them, but then MAC wised up and brought Stone lip liner back. You can only find it in stores (rather than counters at say Macy’s or Nordie’s) but I simply liiiive for this greyish neutral tone. With my uber light pink or nude middle, my lips always look like a medium well roast beef. If you can’t find it, NYX has a great dupe also called 1000 years. #Perfection
It’s not only because I think it’s amazing, it’s because that is the name of the brand too (smart,huh?). Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is all that plus the bag of BBQ chips. I like a concealer to not only truly conceal, but that highlights and moisturizes as well and you get all of that with this product. A little truly goes a looooong way so back it up heavy-handers, a little dab’ll do ya in this case. On the pricey side, $42, but like I said, a little goes a long way and I have had the same tube for literally over a year. Check it out here.
In the sea of products out there by celebrity makeup artists, it says something that my friend and master makeup artist, legendary Billy B has put all of his focus solely on a brush collection. I can tell you the reason for that: brushes are an extension of an artistes hand and without the perfect tool, it’s close to impossible to create the final product you see in your head. With Billy B Brushes you achieve the end result you were hoping for. The quality, the consistency, the luxury, it is all there in every last one of these brushes. I have been completely spoiled and I am telling you all, if you can’t afford the set, start with one or two and build. It is worth every, damn cent. Get on the list here to get invited to his shop on Beautylish!
When I tell you that MUFE’s Aqua Shadow pencils give me life? It’s no exaggeration! These are the most amazing pencils ever. They are catwalk tested and last all friggin night both on the lid and more importantly for me? The waterline. I think I own mostly every color but believe it or not, I use the green most often (just don’t tell Mme La Queer). Run, don’t walk, to the closest Sephora to pick up a few, you can thank me later. Check out the colors here.
