What I'm Lusting Over: Sephora Edition :)

Friday, November 30, 2012

Hi My Loves!!!

So if you watch our daily vlogs on The Schuerman Show then you will know that we went to Sephora the other day and I got to have a little shopping spree. It has been months since I went and had a shopping spree for myself, so it was rather exciting and I had a super good time. 

WATCH MY SEPHORA HAUL HERE:

I got some amazing things, that I totally am so excited for but since it had been so long since I was able to browse around in there, I was totally out of the loop with all the new products! HOLY CRUDMOLI is there a lot of great stuff out right now. I couldn't buy everything I wanted so here are the things I didn't get but am still lusting over. If you have any of these items, let me know how you like them :)

These lipglosses looked super luscious. I love that they have the brush applicator and they remond me very much of Mac Dazzleglass. I'm just a lipgloss lover and these look fab!!!

I've heard great things about this palette. I checked it out while I was there and it seems to be really nice. I'd love to get my hands on one eventually :) The garnet color looks right up my alley!

I had this in my little basket before I ended up getting another palette. I was so torn but this looks really pretty. The blush was super pretty and it had some nice shades for the shadows too. I tried on the highlight and it seemed to be really pretty. Cute packaging too :)

So those are the main ones that I was eyeing while I was there.

Let me know what you are lusting over!!!

HERE'S WHAT WE DID YESTERDAY:

Loreal Visible Lift Repair Absolute Rapid Age Reversing Makeup Review!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Hi My Loves!!!

I have another first impressions/application video for you today with a new foundation I've been wanting to try :)

Here is a full review with pictures and swatches.

WATCH THE FIRST IMPRESSIONS & APPLICATION HERE:

Picture taken at 9pm, with flash.











Onto the foundation review:

Packaging:
Nice packaging. Very light, made out of plastic but still looks snazzy and expensive. Reminds me f the Maybelline Dream Smooth mousse's packaging but a more expensive looking version. Easy to throw in your purse or makeup bag and go without makeup a massive mess or being afraid it will break. Comes with a sponge (I don't use them)....

Coverage: 
I would say it's a medium to full coverage. If you use a sponge or beauty blender I think you would get medium but with the Sigma F88 I got full coverage. It covered all of my pigmentation, as well as my un-eveness and acne scarring.

Finish: 
Definitely more on the dewy side as far as finish goes. I would say luminous/glowy/dewy. You can feel it on your skin. It feels like your wearing a semi oily feeling serum.

Texture: 
It's harder than I was expecting. When you stick your brush in, it continues to stay firm and hard but it goes on the brush and your face very creamy. A bit oily and slippery.

Application: 
Blends super easily, glides on like butter. A little tough to put on without making brush marks on your face and I did find that if I touched a place on my face with my finger it would smear the makeup right off. Also when I was applying my concealer I had a hard time as it was slipping off of the foundation underneath causing my pink skin to peak through. So you have to swipe it on and then kind of pat it afterwards with your brush so you have no wonky marks.

Wrinkle Friendliness:
This is probably one of the best for wrinkles. My forehead wrinkles were barely noticeable as well as the smile lines. My under eyes did crease but I did use a different concealer and I think that was what was creasing. This is a wrinkle friendly foundation for sure.

Lasting Power: 
Not very impressive. I would say 4-6 hours of looking nice. After that it goes downhill. I didn't powder though, so maybe with a powder you could get an extra few hours with it staying fresh looking. It got pretty oily in my T zone towards the end of the day. It does transfer onto anything that touches it, so that was a tad annoying for me. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who wants all day wear.

Color: 
I think there were a good variety of shades. I'm not sure how many all together. I got the 121 Light Ivory which I found to be a perfect match. It has a slight yellow undertone. It was the 2nd to lightest. The lightest one had a pink undertone, which I don't care for on my skin. I was impressed with the color although as it got later in the day I felt like it got lighter??? Maybe it's just me haha!

Photo Friendly:
I took a picture with flash at night indoors and it was ok. I wouldn't recommend this for a special photo obsessed occasion.

Easy to Remove?
I just used my Jojoba oil and a washcloth and it came right off. 

SPF: 16

Scent: 
It just smells like foundation to me. A bit chemically.

Price: 
$13.97 at Walmart

Who's it best for?
I would recommend this foundation to normal, normal to dry, dry and extra dry. If you are oily you will be a butter face within an hour. I wouldn't even bother with this if you have any kind of oilyness at all unless you want to really whip out the powder or blotting sheets. Anyone who has wrinkles or fine lines will like this. If you only wear foundation for a couple hours at a time then this would be perfect, but if you want it to last a long time.... might not be for you.

Would I repurchase? 
No. It doesn't have the lasting power that I like.

Thanks for reading!

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation Review!

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Hi My Loves!!!

I finally have a new video up on You Tube for you guys!! Can you believe it??? It only took me 3 months haha!!! It was the perfect moment yesterday, when both of the babies were asleep at the same time, so that I could film :) Yay!!

Watch my first impressions and application here:


So I picked up a sample of the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation & Concealer while BS and I were at the mall the other day. Here's what the actual bottles look like, incase you're wondering.

Picture taken without flash in natural light at 12:30pm
Smile Line (little noticeable but that always happens with me... nuts)



Picture taken with flash at 8:25pm with indoor lights. Very impressed with the fact that it has no white cast :)


Onto the foundation review:

Packaging:
I didn't actually purchase either of them, as I wanted to try them out first but I did get to take a peek in the store really quickly. It has a pump which is great for being a lot less messy. It looks rather sophisticated. So /i would say yay for packaging :)

Coverage: 
This is definitely full coverage. I suppose you could do medium to full if you used a damp beauty blender and applied very little but using the Sigma F88, it was full on cover everything up baby!!! This foundation is going to be great for those of you who have acne, acne scarring, pigmentation..... basically this stuff will cover EVERYTHING!!! I'm super impressed with the coverage. It makes your skin look flawless... almost like a doll.

Finish: 
It claims to be matte but I think it's more of a modern matte, where it's not super dry and cakey looking but it's not super dewy either. On me it was like a natural matte but still with a nice glow to the skin if that makes sense.... I really like the finish. It was perfect on my normal/dry skin.

Texture: 
It's quite thick and very creamy. It's still obviously a liquid but it's not the super liquidy kind that drips down your hand and makes a massive mess. 

Application: 
This foundation is a dream to apply. It apply's so easily, blends flawlessly, doesn't dry ridiculously quickly like the regular ColorStay. This is a great foundation for people who are not the best with blending, as you really can't mess it up. It's dummy proof ;) I apply it with the Sigma F88 for full coverage. It glides on like butter and instantly starts covering all those booboos!

Wrinkle Friendliness:
I would say it was actually pretty good for wrinkles. I have such a hard time trying to find foundations that don't sit into every little wrinkle I have and I felt like this one is definitely one of the better ones for those darn things! It did sit in a little under the eyes by the end of the day but nothing major, as well as a tad in my smile lines but it wasn't bad.

Lasting Power: 
AMAZING!!! I applied it at 12:30pm  and at 8:30pm it looked almost the exact same as when I applied it. I feel like this would be a great foundation for anyone who needs their makeup to last all day, looking fab. The only thing I would say, is that if you are oily it may get a bit dewy looking towards the end of the day. So maybe set it or bring a powder along to touch up? I didn't have to though, as I'm dry.

Color: 
There are 14 different shades and they seem to have almost every skin tone covered. I got the Light 46 and I felt like it was a great match for me. 

Photo Friendly:
I took a picture with flash at night indoors and it turned out really nice. No white cast so this would be a great wedding/dance/event foundation.

Easy to Remove?
I just used my Jojoba oil and a washcloth and it came right off. 

SPF: None

Scent: 
It just smells like foundation to me. A bit chemically.

Price: 
$34

Who's it best for?
I would recommend this foundation to normal, normal to dry, combination, combination/oily, super oily but not super dry. I feel like because it has the more matte finish, on really dry skin it may pick up and show your dry areas a bit more than you would like. For oily skin it may get a bit too dewy towards the end of the day but if you set it with a powder you might be ok. It's hard for me to say as I'm not oily. I'm normal/dry. People who want a full coverage foundation, that lasts ALL day long will love this.

Would I repurchase? 
I didn't actually purchase but I am planning on it for sure. I am super impressed with it and it might possibly be my new holy grail foundation :)
