My definite HITS/MISSES...(my honest opinion)

                              Tarte Palette-the jewelry box

What else do I have to say, the picture explains it all.  The color payoff in this TARTE palette is amazing,  What I like about this so much is that the pigmentation is worth the money and you don't experience any fall-outs which is a plus when finding perfect eyeshadows.  On top of that, it comes in colors of neutral to dramatic tones and you won't even have a problem blending these two different shades together.  It's a must have so get your hands on before it's gone.  You're buying this at a price of $52.00 ;) GREAT DEAL! 
Also, if you spend over $50 on, it's free shipping. So take advantage while you can.
FYI: As I was reading the review on, I didn't realize that the chain on the box could be taken off and be worn.  Being that said, the gorgeous gold-tone and black necklace is detachable and wearable.

So I told you guys a few weeks ago that I got this set free from my sister for spending over $200 (having a Beauty Insider card) and let me just tell you how amazing the products make my lips look, DRAMATICALLY PLUMPED!  I love it.  I constantly use the gloss and it glides on perfectly smooth on top of lipsticks or stains.  The set was free during the time we got it although you can purchase this set for $69.00 on Sephoras website.  It doesn't cake up your lips, doesn't make your lips look dry, doesn't dry out your lips but yet it helps enhance your lips looking fuller and sexier!  MUST HAVE for you ladies.

I've been using this product for the past two months and I'm finally out of it.  Let me just tell you a little bit about this product  before you purchase it.  Now, I have minimal blemishes which ranges from pimples, redness, scars and just over all, imperfections in the skin.  This Make Up Forever HD foundation promises a full-coverage flawless finish and I honestly have to say, having my skin type is hard to cover any redness/dark using this product.  But if you apply concealer ontop of this product, the coverage is great. The coverage is amazing for those who have flawless skin already but I would say it's more of a light-medium coverage.  It's mainly for photo-shoots & I find it a true.  Also the finishing look on my skin is a matte to dewy look, more on the dewy side.  On the bright side, this foundation is so light on the skin you'd ask yourself twice if you applied foundation! 
If you're one of the ladies who have nice, flawless skin (like my sisters) this product is the way to go.  My sister Maggie and I basically use the same foundation products (well sometimes) and I've notice the finishing touches on her skin is so much better.  You're paying $40.00 for 1.01 oz.  & this lasted me roughly about 2 months.  I hope this helps you in choosing the right foundation for your skin-type.
FYI: Has a orange undertone.

Natural FX Water Based Foundation SPF 15
I've been using this product for the past month and I have to honestly say, this foundations is very heavy.  If you're one who likes the heavyness of foundation and great coverage, this is way to go.  The first time I used it, I thought it was to creamy and to thick on the skin.  For most, thick heavy foundations are no, no's.  My sister bought this product for me at the price of $40.00 and she loved it, but for me and my skin type, it was just to much.  I wouldn't repurchase this for it being so thick.

Powder FX Mineral Powder Foundation
At the price of $35.00, I would repurchase this product because the finishing touches of this powder is wondrous.  Now I tried this mineral powder ontop of the water based foundation and it was so great. It felt really thick and at one point I thought it was really cakey combining the two. So I stopped and used this power alone or on top my moisturizers.  Great product, its' a must have.
Conair's-75 second fastest heat-up for the perfect style
This set is AMAZING!  I got this as a X-MAS gift from my wonderful sister Maggie and just let me tell you how wonderful it is.  Heats up so fast (less than 75 seconds) and curls my hair like crazy.  I've gotten so many compliments about my hair ever since I curled my hair with this hot roller set.  It's selling at the retail price of $41.00 I believe according to my research.  I'm sure it could be purchase anywhere since Conair is sold everywhere.  At first I had told my youtubers that I disliked the clip, but last night my sister had called me from watching my video that I had clipped the rods incorrectly.  So being what she said last night, I retried clipping the correct way and hey, it's true I was clipping it wrong!  I LOVE THIS.  Some of you might think it's so time consuming and takes forever to heat up, but I honestly get my hair done in less then 5 minutes.  Takes me two minutes to roll'em up, and I only leave the rollers in for less then 3 minutes.  Looks amazing!  Try it for yourself!  Something affordable for its' brand and worth the money!

                                        MAYBELLINE Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation

I'm currently obssessed with this foundation being that it's a drug-store product.  It's so affordable and the coverage is amazing.  It's an all day hydration to the skin and I'm just absolutely in love with it.  If you all are wondering, I'm usually a NC35-40 in Mac foundations and I'm using the 240 Natural Beige.  Perfect shades and a variety of colors.  You pay from $7-8 depending where you purchase it and I would say, buy if you get the chance too.  It's super duper light, feels just as nice as a higher-end brand.

  3. JOCEE411 thank you for following up on my blog, it means a lot to me. If you do ever get the chance to please do also check out my vlogs on my YouTube Channel!

  4. Hey Mara, I love your blog. I look forward to following you. It's amazing. Anywho, I do like MUFE's foundation too. But with my skin type, I'd have to pass on it, although when I had a clearer face, it looked amazing. So you're probably more on the flawless skin type. And yes, I love Maybellines Dream Smooth Mousse, it's amazing for the price of it.
