Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick and Brush Review

IMG_9677.JPG

Hourglass just released a new foundation stick and brush. I was super excited because I love many other products from Hourglass and I love stick foundations because they are super easy to take anywhere.

Their Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick [$46, available herecovers any kind of imperfections on the skin, while providing a natural finish. It has a very blendable, liquid-like texture, making it easy to apply. Also, the triangular tip reaches all points of the face.

The stick is actually more pigmented than I expected it to be, but the since the formula blends so well, a little bit goes a long way. A few dots on the cheeks, forehead, and chin are all it takes to get medium coverage. I love how you can build this foundation to be full coverage.

Moving on to the second product, the Vanish Seamless Finish Brush [$46, available hereis the perfect tool to use with the foundation stick. It is the same size as the foundation stick, making it also great for traveling. It is dense, with a slight angle, making it perfect for blending any foundation into the corners of the face. It is super soft, and a great tool overall.


Bottom line: I am a fan of both! I love how versatile each of the products are. Also, I love how beautifully the foundation applies.

No Makeup Makeup

Perricone MD has launched a makeup line that is skincare at the same time which is perfect for people who are just getting started with makeup or are going for an extremely natural look.

No Foundation Foundation [$60]:  As soon as I applied this, I unfortunately wasn’t a fan of it. It is very sheer, which I am not a fan of, but the main problem was that it is very sticky. It does not feel light, despite the minimal coverage that it gives. Because of this, I will not be using this again. However, I am a fan of the wonderful pump because it makes it easy to dispense the perfect amount of product and the fact that it has an SPF of 30.

No Concealer Concealer [$35]: The formula and applicator of this concealer are very similar to the Naked Skin Concealer by Urban Decay, which I am a huge fan of (it was mentioned in my monthly favorites, here.) It is easy to blend and a great shade for highlighting the under eye. It does have, to a lesser extent, the same stickiness as the foundation. I will be reaching for this concealer again in the future though. Continue reading

Perfect Lips With Estee Lauder

As you guys know, I am a huge fan of lipstick. The perfect lipstick can pull an entire look together. The Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks* are every lipstick lover’s dream. They are pigmented, moisturizing, and last for a long time.

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 7.50.26 PM.png

They come in 31 different shades ($30 each, find them here) ranging from nudes to bold colors. The bullet is shaped to fit the curves of your lips, making them look sculpted. Finally, the lipsticks have a luxurious, metal casing.

These are swatches of the pink/nude/brown everyday colors. With just one swipe, they are completely opaque and have a beautiful sheen. Impulsive is probably my favorite because it is the perfect color for spring and it is great for a variety of different looks.

These are swatches of the bold colors which are great for a night out. Just like the everyday colors, the bold shades are extremely pigmented and moisturizing. Carnal is probably my favorite because it is the perfect blue-based red.

See all 31 shades here: http://www.esteelauder.com/product/631/29657/Product-Catalog/Makeup/Pure-Color-Envy/Sculpting-Lipstick
