Empty product review: elf Eyelid Primer. This is my holy grail eyeshadow primer! It only costs $1 and you can buy it at Target and eyeslipsface.com This is a total dupe for the Urban Decay Primer Potion! This makes my eyeshadow last all day without creasing and I have really oily eyelids. This does not however make my eye shadows more vibrant. I use cream bases for that purpose. I totally recommend this to everyone and I already repurchased :) #elf #eyeslipsface

Repost from @makeupbycherylh It happens to me every time! Does this happen to anyone else?
Shades- 10 total; I have Elusive (light warm pink), Showy (bright blue toned pink), Unapologetic (bright warm coral pink), Sultry (deep rose with brown undertones), Standout (deep red).
Claims- Revlon claims, “A matte finish that’s beyond comforting. Our triple butter complex of shea, coconut and mango butters nourishes lips.”
Scent/Flavor- Peppermint but I don’t think it’s strong and it doesn’t linger on my lips.
Pigmentation- Fully opaque and they build nicely.
Texture/Finish- Creamy matte, accentuates lines and clings to dry patches. I recommend exfoliating first (I love the elf Lip Exfoliator!)
Lasting Power- 4+ hours, fades when eating and drinking; sheen dries down after an hour.
Packaging- Twist up jumbo lip pencil; looks matte and represents the color well
Price/ Availability- $6.50 at Target $10 at CVS (may vary depending on store and location)
Overall Rating- 5 out of 5. My fav shades are Elusive, Showy & Standout.
Dupe- Tarte Matte LipSurgence. Formula is a dead on dupe. Both have a creamy matte texture that is not drying. The packaging and scent is extremely similar as well. Neither of the products stain your lips (except for the dark shades.) I do not notice any color dupes but the formula is identical.
Empty product review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Brightener. This is the perfect product for highlighting my fair skin! This does not conceal on it’s own, I only use it for brightening. I love the color and concistency. It’s a nice light pink tone. I set it with Ben Nye Cameo Powder which is also fair with a pink undertone. The consistency is nice and thin and it doesn’t set too fast. I love using the sponge applicator which is antibacterial. You can remove the sponge if you would like and just twist the product out of the tube. Lucky for me my packaging never broke. I especially love this for my oily skin. I can highlight all the high points of my face without using shimmer. It gives natural dimension to my face. I recommend this shade for fair skin tones and the Neutralizer for medium or tan skintones. I am definitely going to repurchase this. It might even be holy grail status!
