Glam Halloween Inspired Makeup Look

It’s finally October and Halloween is slowly approaching, so I was inspired to create a Halloween Glam Look. For this look, I thought about pumpkins, for some odd reason, and picked the shades orange and green for my eyeshadow. Coincidentally, these are the same colors as University of Miami so you could wear this look for a football game or tailgate! Go Hurricanes! Anyway, hope you enjoy it and if you recreate it make sure to tag me. 🙂 I’ve included all items used below and a close up eyeshadow image too! I’m going to try creating a spooky Halloween look soon so keep your eyes peeled for that and until next time, peace out! Glam Halloween Inspired Makeup Look

I’m back with more medium toned foundations for a part two in this swatch series! These are probably some of the best color matches I found for my NC37 skin. The closest color match from this group has to be Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation in Shade 6; however all the others match really well too. Check out part one of this series, featuring nine other foundations here. Hope you enjoy and if you want more foundation swatches or reviews just let me know! Until next time, peace out!

PÜR Cosmetics Bare It All 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Foundation in Golden Medium

It wouldn’t be Monday without another makeup post. Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on PÜR Cosmetics Bare It All 4-in-1 Foundation. This foundation claims to last 12 hours, have a demi-matte finish, and be full coverage. The line carries ten shades and costs $39, thus in line with other mid to high end brands. I received the shade Golden Medium which turned out to be a really great shade match for my warm medium skin tone (usually NC 37 in MAC for comparison). So without further ado let’s see how this foundation applies on my dry skin:

Before Foundation Application

As you can see in the pictures above, I have just a few spots on my face which would need to some coverage and overall just a little help evening out my skin tone.

After Foundation Application

For this application, I used a beauty blender and only applied one layer of foundation. As you can see, the foundation did what it was supposed to and didn’t feel heavy on my skin. Also, it didn’t grab onto any dry areas of my face! I do agree that it has a demi-matte finish and is more on the full coverage side. When I apply it with a flat top kabuki brush I do achieve the same results as with the beauty blender. PÜR suggests you apply this foundation with their Skin Perfecting Foundation Brush; however, I do not own that brush so I can’t speak towards how it helps apply the foundation and effects on the way it looks on the skin.

I wore this foundation for a full 14 hours on this day. For the first three to four hours, the foundation held up really well. I did notice that the places where my sunglasses touch my face the foundation had wore off much quicker and were barely covered by the four hour mark. So for those of you who wear glasses or sunglasses, this is something to keep in mind. Most foundations on my skin don’t really hold up well against sunglasses but this one did seem to wear off more in this area than I’ve noticed with other foundations.

After the eight hour mark, the only difference I noticed was that the foundation was beginning to settle in my smile lines. Not that much of a big deal for me but may be important for someone who may have more mature skin or wrinkles. After the ten hour mark, I did feel like my face was getting oily. Finally, at the end of the 14 hours the foundation still looked pretty much the same as the last check-in. Since I’ve been testing this foundation for about five weeks, I am happy to confirm that it did not break me out.

Overall, this foundation worked really well for my dry skin. I like that this product is free of gluten, parabens, Bisphenol A, and is vegan. This definitely helps expand the amount of people who can use and try this foundation. I hope the shade range is expanded in the future in order to accommodate even more skin tones. I did get oily after ten hours, so I feel this might wear decently on someone with oily skin too. This foundation definitely lived up to its claim of 12 hour wear. If you can find a nice match for your skin tone, I suggest you give this foundation a try. Until next time, peace out!

Pür Cosmetics – Chrome Glaze High-Shine Lip Gloss Review*

Arm Candy

Squad

lip swatch pur cosmetics heart breaker

Heart Breaker

Today I bring you a review on some of Pür Cosmetics new Chrome Glaze High-Shine Lip Glosses which were provided to me for testing purposes. This new line carries six shades, is cruelty free, and costs $18 each.  Each lip gloss contains .07oz of product which is much less than other competitors; for instance, NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss .27oz, Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss .13oz, Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss .17oz, and Bareminerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss .15oz.

The packaging of these lip glosses is very minimalistic and sleek which I quite enjoy especially since you can see the shade of the gloss just by looking at the tube. Each one contains hints of shimmer that really help create the “chrome glaze” effect on your lips. The applicator is a doe foot with a pointed tip and it is slightly angled. I think this is honestly one of the best applicators I’ve used in a lip product because it fits perfectly into the contours of my lips and allows for really precise application while applying enough product for an even coat.

From the three shades I was given, Squad has to be my favorite because it acts as a muted warm peachy/nude on my lips. Squad and Arm Candy both are pretty consistent in formula and apply with full opacity. Heart Breaker is rather streaky as you can tell in the swatch picture above and unfortunately was rather unflattering on my NC37 skin tone. On a positive note, they are not very sticky but do have a slight grab to them. They’re stickier than NYX Butter Glosses but about as sticky as BareMinerals Moxie Glosses. You won’t have any of gloss still trying to stick together when opening your mouth, as other glosses do, thank goodness. When you remove the gloss you will have shimmer left over, so you may have to put extra time in using your makeup wipe or cleansing balm to try and take them off.

The wear time was about the same as I get with most of my lip glosses. If I didn’t have anything to eat or drink it would last between two and three hours. It does transfer when eating or drinking but that is to be expected. I think I will get the most wear out of Squad since its shade is similar to the shades I wear on a daily basis. I personally would be wary of trying the shade DIY from the line because it is very light and may be streaky like Heart Breaker. Overall, I think they perform pretty well and have a decent formula but the price point is pretty high for the amount of product you’re purchasing in my opinion. BareMinerals is also a higher-end brand sold at Ulta and their Moxie Marvelous Lip Gloss is sold for the same price but has double the amount of product. If you really like these colors with shimmer or the chrome glaze effect these would be perfect for you. Until next time, peace out!
