  1. i have two ways i relax depending on how much time i have at the end of the night. one would be to get into my pjs, put on a movie and relax in bed with my kitties. The 2nd one is too put a face mask on and browse online mostly on makeup sites and pinterest, maybe with a glass of wine
  2. I have tried Alot of primers and i always go back to my Too faced shadow insurance or UDPP. But if you cant afford those, just save up a few bucks a month! Here are a few different ones Madd Style Cosmetics (on facebook and artfire.com) Has 2 she releasese on facebook once in awhile and i love them! My Beauty Addiction (facebook & etsy) Has a really good one AND foil serum as well! Very afforable & always has deals online. Elfs liner is good but not comparable to NYX primers. If you can buy NYX primers at ulta with a coupon you will save even more! I like the HD primer more than the pot form ones.
  3. ooh la la lift isnt a concealer in my opinion it just helps the under eye area and brighten it as well. I love both Boi-ing and Erase Paste, But i do use boi-ing more often than i do my erase paste. I found that the erase paste had to be re-applied way to often than boi-ing concealer. I purchased the realness to concealness box set and it was a great way to get my favorite products in a set
  4. I LOVE those sets! Omgosh i need the coral sets asap! haha!! Im such a benefit lover! Boi-ing is one of my favorite heavy duty concealers!! Thanks for the post i havent seen these yet previewed (i must not be looking to hard) but come august i will be buying the foundation box. The powders and concealers are nice and i have previously owned multiple full size versions, yet to try the foundation so i am excited to try it in the box set!! Im such a coral addict! So i guess ill be needing the coralista box as well!
  5. Wow i have to say that was a great read for sure, and very informative! I have to say i have swapped with a lady who said she had MAC 3-D glitter from the heatherette collection, so we swapped and it was a chunky Mac Fake. I was pissed and of course my luck she vanished and i ended up with fake Mac. my 2nd experience was on ebay before i knew or youtube bloggers made videos about Fake mac of ebay. I purchased an eyeshadow because a limited edition item i wanted was sold out everywhere, i paid double. Received it and its not the same texture, nor the right color and obviously in a real mac container just not real mac eyeshadow.. Shameful! That ended up being the worst 26 dollar eyeshadow purchase and such a heartbreak! Now mind you. I have been to flea markets and the M.A.C. booths (usually 4 or 5 of them) are always packed, and people waiting forever to snag a deal. I was curious about it all and waited in line. The one i had happened to be in didnt allow you to touch the product unless your purchasing it. No samples were given as well. I saw they had the 2011 summer sand collection (green packaging) so i grabbed a blush it said #02 (they went up to 6) and purchased on for $8.00 just to see how it compared. It was very powdery, felt like crushed chalk and wasnt very pigmented on the cheeks but swatched very well. It was def. an interesting experience because people were being told its real mac, and you were getting steals. Its clearly not but i just find that to be shameful behavior. I know alot of people love the fake stuff i just could never do that to myself or clients knowing what it is, and NOT knowing whats in it. Now if they told us what was in the fake mac products that would be a different story. If your going to buy Real Mac save up! Your health and skin deserve the real deal.
  6. Honestly ive never had great luck with Maybelline either :/ I personally found fit me to be a horrible greasy mess on my combo skin. BUT Maybellines dream matte collection was pretty good, not going to lie! I love matte formulas so i used it all up! lol I recently switched to products from companies that dont test on animals so i havent found a cheaper alternative but i Highly recommend Revlons Colorstay line! make sure you read the bottles though because they have different formulas depending on your skin type which is awesome. I know alot of other makeup artist who use it in there kits as well as an everyday foundation.
  7. Hands Down the New brushes to get are the Real Technique brushes by Samantha Chapman (ulta or online) The face brushes are cheap and also come in sets. All my costumers cant believe how soft they are on there face! No joke These rule! There eyeshadow brushes are great too but i prefer my other brands. Coastal scents & sigma Makeup brushes are affordable, great quality and always in stock (well almost always). They are great alternatives to sephora & mac brushes. Also Sonia Kashuk & Target brand makeup brushes and great as well!! I have quite a few i always grab!
