Studio Gear CC Cream Review

I have always wanted to try out a CC Cream, but for some reason I keep forgetting to add it on my list.  I finally had the chance to try one from Studio Gear CC Cream and this is just a sample.

Here is what the CC Cream does: Hydrating CC Cream transforms and enhances your complexion in an incredibly light, smooth formula. This foundation simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture, and covers and treats blemishes with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finish.

Key Benefits of the CC Cream:
- Prevents fine lines and wrinkles with collagen-building ingredients
- Restores skin elasticity by promoting moisture retention
- Brightens and illuminates skin with a non-oily, complete coverage application

My thoughts on this product:
The CC Cream comes out white and turns into your natural skin tone.  It applies really smooth and not oily.  If you want that illuminate look then you don’t need to set it with powder, but since I get oily on my t-zone, I have to set it with a powder.  This CC Cream is a light coverage, I still saw blemishes on my skin, but that’s okay.  I don’t always want a full coverage, specially if I’m just going to a store or picking up my children from school.  You can definitely use this on a daily basis for when you’re in a hurry like me.  What I love about this CC Cream is that it moisturizes your skin at the same time.  I didn’t need to put any moisturizer, which made my routine a bit easier.
Here is a complete look using the Studio Gear CC Cream:

Blinkcosmetics Review

Blinkcosmetics just launched online during Black Friday.  Just in time for me to try out their product.
What you need to know about Blinkcosmetics.
Blink Cosmetics is a cosmetic line catering to enhancing beauty for all walks of life. We carry Eye Shadows, Mascaras and more for the Eyes.
Blink Eye Cosmetics add depth and dimension to the eyes and compliments the eye color. Blink Cosmetics are rich and vibrant soft and subtle triple milled for a silky texture, oil free and can be used wet and dry.
Each eyeshadows cost about $13.50, I know you think the price is a bit much because I thought that too. But, it is worth buying.  The eyeshadow is really pigmented and blendable. 
The top swatch is called Miami nites which has a bit sheen to it.  It is very beautiful on the eyes and very blendable and buildable.  I applied this eyeshadow wet.

The bottom swatch is called Real Teal which is a matte eyeshadow.  It feels chalky, but I was able to work around it by just wetting my brush and applied it on my lid.  This eyeshadow is also blendable and buildable.

Frost Cosmetics Swatches and Review



I ordered this very unique and pigmented lip glosses from and was founded by Lakeisha.

These are just samplers I have for only $20 and it comes in 14 pcs with your choice of colors and it was also free shipping.  I’m all about great deals!  You should definitely check it out! I tried each color I have, but not all suited me.  The color was too bright for me.  I love the neutrals on me though and the red.  It also has a scent to it, but not the bad smell.  It smells good.  Easy to blend and easy to come off.  I wiped it off with a dry cloth or tissue, but when I wiped it wet, it got everywhere around  my mouth.  That’s not a problem though because it will still come off.  I still recommend you try their product.


Here are some swatches I did on my lips:

Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil Swatches and Review



From left to right: Purple Fix, Aqua Stone, and Jade Jewel.

Here is an overview of the product:

12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil

• Intense, Instant Color Eyeliner that is Made to Last
• Smooth-Gliding Pencil For Precise Application
• Long-Lasting (Up to 12 hour wear)
• Water & Transfer Resistant
• Paraben-Free
• Made in USA

My thoughts on this product:

This pencils are intense, they glide smoothly, they last long, and they are water resistant.  I highly recommend this product.  They don’t smudge at all.  I had to use an oil base makeup remover to get them off.

I bought this at Walgreens and the price is $2.99.  I think they have 6 or maybe 7 shades, but this are the only ones they had available and a black one, but I didn’t purchase a black since I already have a black liner.
