What if you were told that you had to keep your makeup regimen to three products.
Would it be hard for you? It would be the easiest choice for me.
  • A liquid lipstick
  • Lashes
  • Concealer
Years ago concealer would never be in my top three "survival" products. But I won't lie, I love how awake it makes me look. Especially days when the world is trying me and I'm surviving on NO sleep. 

As a woman of colour, I know that we are prone to getting dark under eye circles. With the MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Concealer’s ($34.00 CAN)  you don't need a lot to get the job done! I also forgot to add that the concealers have a Anti-Dark Circle Complex with Radiance Booster.

Nudestix: Go nude, but better SWATCHES

I feel like 2015 is going to be about natural looks. 
The point is to look polished but never over done. 
If that's you.. then should check out Nudestix.  

Their slogan is "Go nude, but better".
They come packaged up in a sleek black tin along which has a large mirror and a pencil sharpener.

The line is actually the brain child of Jenny Frankel who is a chemical engineer with over 20 years of beauty experience.  Her muses are her daughters Ally & Taylor. I had the opportunity to try out some products from the line. Immediately, I fell in love with Nudestix concealer pencil ($28.00 Cdn). The consistency is amazing. I had NO idea if the colour would match me but it ended up being perfect! I'm a deep 8. That is the darkest colour in the line. The colour is not muddy or red, it's the perfect matte chocolate brown. I should also add the pencil is very soft so it glides instead of drags.

I also tried out a lip/cheek pencil ($28.00 Cdn) in Ripe (not sure if it has the right colour for me but I loved the consistency as well).  I want to try sin. Also I tried one of the magnetic eye colours ($28.00 Cdn) in Angel. If not used over the lid, this would make a great inner eye colour.
"If you have an oily lid like me, you’ll love the way the magnetic eye color never creases, fades or smudges."- Ally

Best Concealer EVER: LA Girl High Definition Pro Concealer

Sometimes you stumble on a product that is so amazing that you want to buy the whole stock!

I found one that will you run out and buy it today!

I won't lie, I've never paid any attention to La Girl products before. I believe I've seen them in a few dollar stores before but the stock was low and the items were not appealing.

I found the LA Girl High Definition Pro Concealer for $2.99. Being a WOC, it's hard for me to find a concealer with enough yellow & red for my skin tone.  I took a chance and bought chestnut and hoped that it would work.

Plus it was only $2.99, if it didn't work  I was okay with throwing it out. Each tube has a brush-tip applicator. Which is perfect for under eyes because it's soft!

Can you believe that I got a PERFECT match on my first try! 
This is everything that I would want in a concealer! 
  1. Creamy
  2. Lightweight
  3. Buildable
  4. Affordable
I love the fact that it has Chamomile extract plus vitamin C & E in the formula.

Here is a picture of me using it under my eyes.
I don't have foundation on.
I'm so happy to share this with you all! 
Please let me know if you purchase it!

Per-fekt Beauty easy alternative to traditional foundation, primer and powder.

The first time I touched this product in Sephora, I fell in love. I described it as "buttery goodness"

Per-fekt Beauty offers multi-functional products that are quick and easy to apply, long lasting, and offer an alternative to traditional beauty products.

 The blue bottle is a skin perfector that instantly per-fekts and enhances the appearance of the skin offering an easy alternative to traditional foundation, primer, color corrector and powder. Perfect for girls like me who don`t wear foundation regularly but want natural coverage.
This multi-tasking, modern gel-mousse glides on effortlessly to instantly improve skin tone, help maintain hydration, and reduce the appearance of redness and discoloration, enlarged pores, fine lines and shine.

This is a "swatch" of decendant which is the darkest color in the Per-fekt line. It is described as a dark mahogany color, I would describe it as milk chocolate. This color also looks like it won`t match my skin at all.. but it`s a per-fekt match! The consistency is smooth and not heavy.

Simply pat, smooth and go!  Pat a pearl-sized amount onto face and neck, smooth with fingertips. If more coverage or perfection is desired, Skin Perfection Gel is buildable.
I prefer to use a make-up brush because it`s easier to get a nice light finish!

The second item I was sent is the Eye perfection gel. It`s an anti-aging skin perfector combined with a modern palladium tip applicator that instantly perfekts and enhances the delicate under-eye area offering an alternative to traditional concealers, eye treatments, cover up and primers.

Eye Perfection Gel helps smooth away the appearance of puffy, tired looking eyes, fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating the skin.

Premeasure a drop of Eye Perfection Gel by squeezing out onto the cooling palladium tip applicator before applying around the delicate eye area.  With cooling palladium tip applicator, gently pat and smooth from the outside corner of the eye inward. Gently smooth with fingertips.

  • Consistancy feels amazing
  • Vitamins
  • Maintains hydration
  • shades of light to dark
  • The price can be seen excessive for some.
Overall I'm very happy with these products. Although some may say it pricey but if you purchase a good department store foundation, primer, color corrector and powder, your total will be more than this product.

Pick up Per-fekt beauty at and in stores at Sephora!
