Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 - Review

It's the first day of fall but that doesn't stop me from using a sunscreen, especially since it still feels like summer most of the time here in Los Angeles. Tatcha has a new sunscreen that is non-greasy and tightens the pores which helps to act like as a primer before makeup. This is great for all skin types, but I'm loving it for my sensitive skin. Find out more information below!

L.A. Girl Cosmetics Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks (3 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

Today I have a look at a few of the L.A. Girl Cosmetics Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks. I love the finish of matte lipsticks but sometimes I don't like when they can be drying and uncomfortable to wear all day. These lipsticks from L.A. Girl are so pigmented, last all day, and are moisturizing on the lips even for being matte. I was really surprised yet so happy that these are great quality. See more photos and swatches below!

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara - Review

Maybelline has a new mascara out called The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and I picked it up recently at Target. I was really interested to try this since it has a different kind of brush with "U" shapes to push up the lashes to give lift and dramatic volume. I was hoping to love this and it would be a favorite but that didn't happen and I'm going to explain more below!

 Being able to customize your makeup is a great way to get what you want from a product and adjust it to your liking at any time. The Cover FX Custom Cover Drops are an amazing product because they are concentrated pigments that allow you to customize any product and pick the level of coverage you are wanting. The shade I have a look at and review of is N25. Find out more info and my thoughts below!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush - Review

 Today I have a look at a new tinted cream gel blush from Maybelline. I bought this Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush in the shade Pinking Of You. This has a different look and packaging that reminds me of an EOS lip balm. I was hoping that this would add a good amount of color to my cheeks with still being subtle.
