Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I just got my Il Makiage order in the mail so I just wanted to share this very small haul with you … And away we go….

LONG-WEAR MATTE LIP CREAM  $22 for .18 fluid ounces of product on the Il Makiage website. I was gifted this mini of the shade Gala (a dusty coral pink matte). This lipstick is billed as having vibrant, high-impact pigments with an innovative formula that ensures opaque, all-day matte coverage that won’t fade, crack or smudge. It claims to be a non-drying, not-sticky, comfortable formula that’s full coverage and transfer-proof. This product is made in Italy. It comes in 27 shades. 

The picture on the left is with not flash and the one on the right is with flash. This lippie is amazing! It’s transfer proof, dries down to what feels like a satin, however it does not budge. The formula reminds me of the L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stains but the Il Makiage one has a better lasting power. I enjoyed this so much I have put it on my list for next month’s beauty purchases… I want a few shades.

WOKE UP LIKE THIS FLAWLESS BASE FOUNDATION $44 for 1 fluid ounce of product on theIl Makiage website. It comes in 50 shades with 20 shades for deeper skin tones. It’s billed as being  a powerful, streak-free foundation that smoothes and evens the skin with an advanced, innovative formula for a flawless, uniform natural matte finish. It claims to be a buildable medium-to-high coverage enriched with: Vitamin E for anti-aging benefits Hyaluronic acid for hydration, protection and filling wrinkles. It claims to have special optically corrective powders blur fine lines, redness, and blemishes while light-diffusing spheres deflect attention away from all imperfections with a streak-free in application and lightweight in feel for comfortable wear.

I purchased this off a video ad I saw on TikTok because they offer a 14 day trial period before you by… You only pay for the shipping… You try it out for the 14 days (which starts the day it’s delivered) and if it doesn’t turn out to be the correct shade, doesn’t perform the way you like, or for what ever the reason you can return the foundation free of charge and they will even pay for the shipping. So I decided to give it a shot since they boast that they can perfectly match your skin … I have to say I am extremely impressed. It matches me very very VERY well.

The instructions say to use 2 drops for the full face … The formula is medium thick with high pigment and great spreadability. 

The picture on the right is with no flash and the picture on the right is with flash. I would call this a demi-matte formula. I truly think just this one pump could cover 1/2 my face.

I will test it out tomorrow and give my review then.

Well… That’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night. Remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
