Make up and beauty finds.

So I just wanted to share with you that I have been shopping crazily for make up, foundations, brushes, blushes, bronzers etc..I wanted to share my experience so far and opinion. And what I think the best one that worked for me. I recently purchased Make up Forever foundations, Lancome, Revlon and Mac.  I have been a Mac users since high school and have been very happy with  Mac, but with my oily face, I'm always in search for a new and Matted foundation with full coverage.   I tried the Mat and Velvet MUFE, as well as the HD foundation along with the powder foundation Duo Mat and Pro Finish.  I do like the Mat & Velvet better than the HD in their liquid foundation.  I felt like it lasted longer without having to put more power on top.  With Mac, I felt like my face would be oily within a few hours, and I was touching up constantly maybe 3-4 times a day.  Although, I like the fact that Mac has a lot of foundation color to choose from, they have one that's closer to my skin color.  By the way, when choosing a foundation, when you have oily face like me, always try to get a one shade lighter than the one that matches your skin.  Because of your oily skin, it tents to absorbed the color and makes it one shade darker that you'd like.  I know this because I've experienced it many times.  Everybody always wants me to get the perfect shade for my face, but the second I step outside that store, my face is darker than my neck and I hate that look.  I do like the Duo Mat powder foundation a lot, great coverage and its flawless.  I like Pro Finish on top of my liquid foundation, it sets the whole look.

 I also purchased their Matte Bronzer #40  for contouring and I do love it a lot.   So one day I went to Sephora and had one of their make up artist do the make up IQ foundation finder and it pointed me to Lancome.  I do like Lancome I have used their blush and bronzer before and now also bought their subtle Blush, so I thought I'd try their foundation this time. I bought their Teint Idole 24H Make up in Bisque 410 (W).  So far I like it. But definitely pretty pricey.  I then tried Revlon Long wear liquid foundation and for the money it was pretty darn good.  I did freshen up a couple of times, but the coverage is great and doesn't fell like you have too much on.  I like the fact that is full coverage too.

I also bought some brushes and tried the ELF from Target and so far it's been great.  I bought their blush and eye shadow brushes. Love them and for the price, you can't beat! If you are looking for Skin Care Products, try Lisa Hoffman Hydrating Mask. I use it 3 times a week.
