Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush: First Impression, Demo, and Review

clarisonic foundation brush

I recently got the Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head while at a L’OREAL even for the new welove.makeup site.  I have owned the Mia 2 for over 4 years, and I absolutely love it.  I bought it after saving up for months as a college student, and I have never regretted it.  Not only has it lasted 4 years without issue, it is an amazing cleansing tool and has completely changed my skin for the better.  It is gives a deep, pore de-clogging clean, but is gentle enough for me to use everyday.  There are also a variety of brush heads to choose from for those with different skin types!

If you own the Clarisonic already, you totally should, the foundation brush is a great bonus.  Watch my first impression, demo, and review below!  Find out more about this brush system HERE.

Red Lipstick Makeup Tutorial: Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom

coloured raine cherry blossom

I have always admired a bold red lipstick paired with the perfect look.  I was told all the time growing up, and even as an adult, that red lipstick just wasn’t for me—it was for light skinned girls.  Girls like me should stick to colors like purple, but never red.  I’ll admit it got to me, I never really felt comfortable with most reds and certainly not without a liner.  This makeup tutorial shows my new found, perfect red lipstick makeup look for dark skin! It is super easy, and WOC friendly, so I hope you all enjoy 🙂

MAC MATTE LIPSTICK COLLECTION: THE BRIGHTS

mac lipstick for dark skin

I am a HUGE lipstick girl.  I love all types of lipstick, from matte to satins, and I have tried a very wide range of them from different brands…but I always come back to MAC.  I love the quality and consistency, and I have to admit, there is something oddly satisfying about adding to my collection of sleek, bullet shaped lipstick tubes.

dark skin lipstick swatches

Even from before I started my channel, I loved watching dark I have done a lipstick swatch video from the MAC Matte Collection, with more fall/winter shades, and so I wanted to come on and do a video on the more colorful shades in this collection.  If you are into matte lips, but don’t like liquid lipsticks then I highly recommend these!  There are gorgeous, pigmented, and wear very comfortably for the most part.  Even the driest of them, the Retro Mattes, are comfortably wearable over a good base.  The normal mattes are very creamy, while also longwearing, and I recommend them for on the go wear.  I have also included some dark skin lipstick  lip liner suggestions for those of us who need to tone the brightness down! Enjoy 🙂

MORPHE BRUSHES EYESHADOW PALETTE HAUL AND REVIEW!

 

morphe-brushes8

If you spend any time on Instagram looking at makeup and beauty posts, then you have most likely heard of Morphe Brushes. They are well known for their makeup application tools, but it is their eyeshadows that caught my attention! I first heard about these shadows from Jaclyn Hill, and was lucky enough to be able to snag the Jaclyn Hill palette when it came out.  I loved the shadows in that limited edition release so much that I decided that I needed to get my hands on more palettes.

On this haul I picked up the Morphe 35O Palettes, both the shimmer and the matte, along with the 35F palette.  I love them.  The shadows are buttery and smooth, while very pigmented and consistent.  Some pots do have a more powdery texture, but it’s not a huge problem.  If you want to see my review, along with swatches, be sure to check out the video below!  Enjoy 🙂
