Make Up For Ever
Hi there fellow makeup junkies! I hope you are all doing well, and having a great start to your week, after a long holiday labor day weekend, yeah always good to take a break that’s for sure, I hope you all enjoyed! It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for yet another tester Tuesday, crazy how many I have posted now, I just keep on going, I have SO many more samples to try, it won’t be ending, or ever running out that’s for sure lol! This week I picked from 2 of my most favorite brands those are too faced, and make up for ever. I have been a huge fan of both of these brands for many years, and love how amazing all their products are! I literally haven’t tried a product from either of these brands that I haven’t liked, or enjoyed.
The products that I chose were the melted lipstick, and the translucent powder, I have been really wanting to try both of these out, and although I am hesitant to actually post a picture of it on my lips, it’s a bit crazy bright for me, lol thus why the swatch is on my hand, I know a lot of people love these types of colors, and can totally rock it, but I don’t think I can lol! I did try it on my lips but yikes, totally not me 🙂 but I wanted to check out the formula, and how it wears on the lips, and if it truly lasts or not. I am going to admit, I am not a huge fan of lipsticks in general, I have always been a lip gloss girl, I can’t help it, like I have said before, it’s so tough because I constantly have dry lips, and chunks of lipstick isn’t attractive, are you with me on that? Crazy! So, as you can imagine I am not crazy about liquid lipsticks, because I can’t seem to find a moisturizing enough one, and formula for my dry lips, I would love, and appreciate any suggestions that’s for sure. Now on to the reviews! Enjoy!
Too Faced: Liquid Lipstick (melted candy) $21
What it is:
An intensely saturated lip color with a precise tip applicator.
What it does:
The shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick, all in one high-impact formula. Bold, long-wearing color glides on cleanly with the precision tip applicator, delivering rich color with staying power.
As I said before, I really wanted to try this, I couldn’t believe that I never had before, I have swatched some in the store, but never actually tried one. I think this color is a bit bright for anyone, especially for me, I feel like I can’t pull it off, but I know some can, just not me. I think the nude colors, and lighter shades I think are beautiful though, and I am considering purchasing one. I am just a nude type of lady, just my comfort zone. I like the staying power of the formula though, it lasted, and stayed put even through eating, and drinking, which I was surprised by. I wish that they were packaged differently. I don’t love the applicator it gets instantly messy the first time you squeeze it, makes a huge mess on the tip, and the cap, it also is difficult to apply on my thinish lips, hard to stay in the lines. It doesn’t have a weird smell or doesn’t chunk up on the lips at all, which is what I look for first, because my lips are so dry. Overall I think it’s a good product, a bit on the spendy end though, and I think a lot of product will be wasted due to the tube packaging, and sponge tip applicator. I want to try other colors now!
Make Up For Ever: HD Microfinish Powder $34
What it is:
A three-time award-winning universal translucent finishing powder to be applied over foundation or worn alone.
What it does:
This industry-recognized luxe finishing powder sets the foundation and slightly mattifies skin without changing its natural contours. Made of 100 percent-mineral silica, it softens the appearance of imperfections, fine lines, and pores and completely evens out the complexion for a glowing, radiant look. This translucent, dermatologist-tested, and talc-free formula does not dry the skin. One universal shade works for all skintones. The lightweight, silky texture and ultrafine formula adds a soft focus effect for a flawless finish and can be applied over foundation or worn alone.
Oh HD powders, there is so many different opinions on them, and so many reviews, including pros, and cons that’s for sure. I am going to give my honest opinion. Okay, here goes, I love anything make up for ever, I mean anything, and everything, they are an amazing company with the up most quality products, love them! I wanted to try there HD powder, and see if it would work for me. I have very oily skin, and have to always set my foundation, and concealer with powder, not matter what, so I wanted to put this to the test on my skin, but not on my under eyes because I didn’t want that flash back, even though I don’t take a lot of selfies, or pictures, but you never know right? So I applied it all over my face after foundation, and I really liked it, the powder itself is so finely milled, and soft I couldn’t believe how light weight it was. It didn’t make my face to white at all, and blended perfectly offering that HD look without the shine, and oil, which is exactly what I was looking for in a translucent powder. I do think this worked great for my skin, and skin type, and texture, and provided the matte finish I wanted. This is a great powder, and would definitely purchase the full size, and recommend, I think with this a little bit goes a long way as well.
