Review: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Product Line*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on some products by First Aid Beauty. The products are from their Ultra repair line which now include hydrating serum, cleansing bar, and lip balm. For those of you unfamiliar with First Aid Beauty (FAB), it is a well known skincare line created with scientifically advanced formulas that are dermatologist recommended, allergy tested, paraben free and fragrance free. Their products are for all skin types and focus on solutions for both chronic and everyday skin concerns from head to toe. I am also proud to say that FAB is based in Massachusetts! This is very cool for me considering I have lived in MA all of my life. Keep reading to learn about the products and to hear my thoughts on each.

Review: Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows. I got these shadows back around Christmas when Makeup Geek was doing a 12 days of Christmas sale. I got these 6 foiled shadows for $30.00. They are normally $10.00 each so this was an awesome deal. As many of you know, these foiled shadows got a ton of hype in the beauty blogger/YouTube world. Because of this, I was super excited to try them out. I was also happy because Makeup Geek is cruelty free. Keep reading to hear my thoughts!

Review: Makeup Geek Brushes

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on some Makeup Geek brushes that I bought during their 12 days of Christmas specials. The deal was $23.00 plus shipping for a rounded blush brush, a stippling brush, and a face buffer brush. I hadn't tried any of their makeup brushes before so I was excited to try them out.

Face Buffer Brush $18.00

I used this brush to apply foundation. This was soft but wasn't dense, stiff, or full enough.

Rounded Blush Brush $10.00

This brush is very small and isn't thick or wide enough. I wouldn't use this as a blush brush. It looked bigger in the picture. I would use this to apply setting powder under my eyes or to apply highlight to my cheek.

Stippling Brush $18.00
Makeup Geek Brushes
Just like the buffing brush, this brush was soft but was too flimsy. It wasn't stiff enough and there weren't enough hairs/bristles to make this a good foundation brush.

Overall, I was disappointed with these brushes and think that they are just ok.  They are soft but aren't anything special. They do an ok job of applying the product but I prefer all of my other makeup brushes (Morphe, BDellium, e.l.f., M.A.C. etc.) over these. I don't know if these were just made specifically for this sale and they differ from the normal brushes, or if they are the same quality.  Based off these makeup brushes specifically, I do not recommend the Makeup Geek stippling, buffer, and rounded blush brushes. I think that Morphe Brushes are much better.

Review: Wantable Accessories Collection February 2016

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on my Wantable Accessories Collection for February! For this month, I asked for some silver pieces because I already have a ton of gold. I am thinking of getting these boxes every other month to save some money. That means that going forward I will need to think of what I really am interested in getting. Giving better notes each month will help improve my boxes and my overall satisfaction of them.

For those of you unfamiliar with Wantable, it is a personal styling service that you can sign up for monthly (or whenever you would like). It is $40 for your first box and $36.00 every month after that. You get 4-5 products that are tailored to your beauty profile that you fill out when signing up. If you are not happy with your collection, you can send the whole box back and get a refund. They have 3 different type collections; an Accessories Collection, a Makeup Collection, and an Intimates Collection. They recently just added two more subscriptions that are a little different. The Style Edit and the Fitness Edit. These boxes are a little bit more pricey. You pay a $20 styling fee and they send you 5 hand picked items that you can choose to purchase or send back.

Here is what I recieved in my February Accessories Collection:

Review: Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation + Concealer

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation + Concealer. I read that a couple different bloggers/youtubers picked this up and liked it so I decided to try it out myself. I have never used any Milani foundations before and mostly stick to matte formulas so I was interested to see how I would like this one. Also, Milani is cruelty free! I am always super excited when products and brands are leaping bunny approved! Keep reading to hear my thoughts!

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation + Concealer in Light Beige $9.99

Here is what is said about this foundation on the Milani site:

"Combat under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one. A no mess, no drip pump dispenses just the right amount of fluid needed to achieve a flawless look and works around the clock to keep skin looking naturally perfect!"

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation + Concealer

On to my thoughts:
I really liked this foundation! I don't love it as much as the L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation but it is definitely a good foundation. I wouldn't call it full coverage but more medium coverage that you can build up to full. I still have to spot conceal with my dark circles and any pimples that I have. I don't know how to describe the finish. Its not matte but its not dewy either. I guess I would call it a natural finish. The foundation does have an interesting scent which I can't quite pinpoint. It is definitely noticeable though. It does a decent job at controlling my oil and doesn't fade throughout the day. I have noticed that by the end of the day that I am more oily than with my matte foundations. I use my Infallible Pro Matte Powder to set this foundation. The coloring is a little off though. I got the color light beige and it still looks like it has a little bit of a yellow undertone even though it says its for light skin with neutral undertones. When I add the powder on top it helps cancel out the yellow tint to it. I have been wearing this non stop during the work week and would definitely recommend that you go pick it up and try it out for yourself!
