Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealor | I have heard so many great things about this concealor and it does not dissappoint. This is my favourite concealor I have ever used. I know that’s a bold statement but this concealor checks all the boxes for me. It is weightless, great coverage, and feels smooth after it sets on the skin.

YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil | When I swatched theses colors, I wanted to bring them all home with me but I decided on ‘Peach Me Love’. This oil is not sticky and gives a gorgeous gloss to the lips that looks wet but in the best way. Once the glossy finish wears off you are left with a stained color on your lips. A little bit goes a long way with this product so it should last awhile.(I went back and bought ‘Drive Me Copper’ too)

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner | For quite a while I had been using gel liner and wanted to switch things up and go to a liquid. I had heard so many great things about this liner all over the internet and with friends that I just went for it. It has amazing pigmentation and the brush is so thin that you can be very precise with it.

Alterna Bamboo Beach Cream | This was a complete impulse by. I went in with the intention of looking at Gold Mine by Drybar but I could not stand the smell of it so a sales lady showed me this as an alternative. The smell is really great but the glitter stays more on your hands then your hair which is kind of disappointing.

Maybelline Brow Drama | This product is amazing, especially for it’s price. It is a similar product idea to the Benefit Gimme Brow but so much cheaper. The pigmentation is pretty good and it has decent hold. I have been using this on my brows, after I fill them in with powder, to set them in place.

Sephora Eye Mask | This is the only product I have yet to use but if it is anything like the Sephora face masks (last seen here) then I know it will be good. You can’t really go wrong with an eye mask.

Real Techniques Brush | Last, is this beautiful brush. I just recently started using the Real Technique brushes and have been loving all of them but this one definitely stands out. It has the most amazing handle and is really soft. It is a very dense brush that I have been using for contouring, highlighting, and blush. It works so well for all of these because it’s size is perfect for working on the cheek area.

    I love Gimme Brow, but I’m all out. I’d love to try a less expensive alternative, especially one I can pick up at Target! Thanks for sharing about this Maybelline one!
