"Down Boy" Blush and Shadow
I had such a hard time choosing which blush to get, I decided to go with this one because It is unlike any other blush I have. It’s completely matte and is a light baby pink shade. This blush is super pigmented, a little goes a long way with this product! This can be used as a blush or a shadow. I paid $10.50!
Stainiac Cheek & Lip Stain in "Beauty Queen"
I love this stain already! It gives your cheeks the most natural berry color and it does last all day for me, which is rare because I find cheek products never last on my skin. It’s also really easy to blend in and doesn’t go on streaky.I got this stain for $8.50!
"Schwing" Black Liquid Liner
This is your classic black liquid liner. It has a very precise and thin tip, great for doing winged liner. It’s also very long wearing which is great for these hot summer months. I paid $8.50!
"Mary-Lou Manizer" Highlighter
This is the perfect golden highlight. Definitely have to use a light hand with this product, it is a fairly shimmery highlighter. I prefer to use this at nighttime, it’s a really beautiful product. I also really love using this in my inner tear duct. I got this highlighter for $12.00!

Today I wanted to share with you guys a foundation that I've been loving lately! Side note... I finally graduated college and cannot be more happy! Now it's time to get a grown up job :|
Anyways! Back to the review on Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation. When I first tried this foundation to be honest I really did not like like it, I found it make my skin look cakey. A few weeks later I decided to give it a try again after hearing so many great things about it on YouTube, and I was hooked.
What Covergirl says:
"All-in-one foundation with a long-lasting formula that fuses primer, concealer, and foundation in one easy step! The 3-in-1 formula provides a flawless look that lasts all day long."
What I think about this foundation:
- The coverage is pretty good, I would say medium to full but it doesn't feel super heavy which I like.
- Great for combo- oily skin
- Fairly matte/ powdery like finish
- Easy to apply and blend- I love using my Sigma F84 - Angled Kabuki Brush to apply this
- Long wearing- I put this on around 6am and don't have to touch up with powder until around 3:30pm
- SPF 20
- The bottle has a pump- Finally drugstore foundations are starting to come with a pump!
- I found it extremely hard to find a shade that matched my skin tone. The foundation always looked lighter in the bottle and then once I would go to apply it, it would look a lot darker.
- I did find that as the day went on this foundation did get a bit darker, it didn't oxidize just changed color a bit.
Overall I do really like this foundation, I would say it’s one of the better drugstore foundations. I really like the coverage and staying power, that’s what sticks out the most for me. Still doesn’t beat my Revlon Colorstay Whipped though!
Have you guys tried this foundation? What did you think about it?
The brush shape is thin with fairly short bristles which makes it great for picking up all of your lashes and really coating them, it’s also great for winging out the ends.A few other added bonuses is that it doesn't leave flakes underneath your eyes and it does not make your lashes feel hard or brittle. I find this mascara really gives a natural but full and defined look, best of both worlds in my opinion.

|Benefits That Gal Brightening Face Primer|
Using a brightening primer under your foundation or adding a few drops to your foundation is a nice and subtle way to add a touch of glow to your face.
Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer
This is slowly becoming one of my favorite products, especially during the winter months. I find it just gives my skin such a nice pick me up and adds a bit of color and glow. I have a full review of this product, if you’d like to read more about it check it out HERE
