You know when you buy a product and you’re like sweet this works great, love it but then when you use it with either the tool it is supposed to be applied with or another holy grail type of applicator and now you’re like……mind blown
. That is how I feel about these products that are totally great by themselves but added with their BFF and now they are a serious doubt threat.
I totally was a NYX concealer (medium) kind of gal and don’t get me wrong it does the job beautifully and for under $5. Then I used my Sephora coupon and went for the NARS concealer that B raved about and I do love it. I am the Custard color. Universal color for most. My next project is to do a side by side and length of wear comparison because concealer is one thing that I do have to buy a few times a year. Once you add the airbrush concealer brush you will feel like how did you ever apply concealer with your fingers before? Oh and it has the most perfect cap to keep the brush clean.

I have been using this little trifecta of fun for the past month and it honestly gives my latest airbrush makeup trial a run for its money. The MUFE in the green primer does an amazing job taking all the redness out of your face. Make sure you let it dry for a few minutes. Then you just need a tiny amount of the YSL foundation applied with the brush and hello flawless skin. I use B30 (reference point
). Now if I can just find my receipt for the individual brushes that I bought I am totally getting the entire set
. Seriously such a steal!
I’m no pro at contouring but with these tools it does make it a little easier. Cara’s post is my holy grail for instructions. Use the Elf brush (it’s 3 bucks I seriously have like 4 of them) right under your cheek line straight to your ear. Then use the fluffy brush to frame the outside of your face and blend. I used to be a BareMinerals bronzer fanatic but after I got my mini sample of laguna I now see what the cult favorite is all about.

I know I sound like a broken record but the YSL glossy stains
are the best lipgloss stains that exist. I mean what red do you know stays shiny, isn’t drying and won’t transfer onto your wineglass? Then when it fades it does so naturally and does’t leave that weird outer red lip liner thing. I know they are pricey but I have had my holy grail red (#9 rouge laque
) for like a year now and besides losing it in a clutch here and there it is still kicking. My two new favorite neutral colors are N 107 Naughty Mauve
and N 106 Beige Anarchist
. Great investment! Added with the Peter Thomas Roth lip cream absolute perfection! It helps with those dry winter lips and gives a really nice fullness. I have been putting it on every night and morning and I really notice the difference!

Holy grail eyelash curler (even though they can be scary
) with my new favorite mascara equals lash perfection.
If you want eyeliner that would stay on if you went swimming in a pool and then got out and rubbed your eyes but then still will wash off with face wash then here you go. My ultimate black eyeliner pencil.
To finish off that airbrushed look and then set it. The Urban Decay setting spray is for real. I mean it held up my makeup during our engagement pictures in the FL heat and was literally budge proof. I am a believer.
