I finally purchased the full line of Believe Beauty. This is sold at Dollar General. Each product costs no more than $5.00. I will be reviewing the full line tomorrow.
Pretty and Primed Hydrating Primer: 1 fluid ounce. On the back on my hand i felt like a moisturizer… this is very hydrating and has no scent.
Skin Finish Foundation: .85 fluid ounces. This is a medium to full coverage foundation and I chose the shade Nude. This feels like it’s going to be a dewy foundation, it also has no scent.
Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer : .07 ounces. I picked it up in the shade Light/Medium, I’m not sure how well this one will perform…. it felt a bit waxy. It’s a salmon based concealer so it should be good for the dark circles.
You’re Covered Liquid Concealer: .15 fluid ounces. I purchased the shade Light Beige. It was the lightest shade they had at the Dollar General I went to. It’s a spot on shade match for me so that means it will not help brighten my undereyes. It feels light weight and creamy without being too emollient.
Matte Blur Loose Powder: .14 ounces. In the shade Translucent.
Brow Defining Pencil: .02 ounces. This is a pencil that needs to be sharpened. I purchased the shade Dark Brown. This swatch is 1 swipe of the pencil, it seems very pigmented and creamy.
Long Lasting Eyeliner: .01 ounces. I purchased the shade Mystic, it’s a taupeish brown with a slight sheen to it. It seems creamy but I tested it on my waterline and it did not lay down. This is a self sharpening pencil.
Hi-Definition Skinny Mascara: .22 fluid ounces. I purchased the shade black. The wand is small and sort of reminds me of the brush on the MAC Gigablack mascara.
Eye Brow Styling Gel: .02 ounces. It’s got the standard eye brow brush. I purchased the clear one.
Satin Crush Lipstick: .13 ounces. I purchased the shade Moroccan Spice. It seems sheer but creamy.
Lustrous Shine Lip Gloss : .15 fluid ounces. I purchased the shade Georgia Peach. From the hand swatch I can tell this is one sticky lip gloss. I mean super sticky… not sure I’m going to like this product.
Get Glowing Highlight and Contour Palette: .2 ounces. I purchased the Light/Medium compact.
Believe Beauty Eyeshadow Palette: .14 ounces. I purchased the Nearly Nude Palette.
I purchased all 3 items on Amazon. Photofocus Dewy Foundation $2.79 for .95 fluid ounces, Photofocus Dewy Primer $2.79 for .84 fluid ounces, Photofocus Concealer 3.99 for .29 ounces.
This primer is a spot on dupe for the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora). This primer leaves the skin looking so pretty.
I purchased the shade Soft Beige. I tested this foundation out today and really do like this foundation.
First of all, this shade is so light on me. It was great to highlight the center of my face with it but looked ghostly on my under eyes. I do not like this concealer. It just looked cakey and dry under my eyes. I will test it out 1 more time and if I still feel this way I will be decluttering it from my collection.
Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($5.99 at Target for .35 fluid ounces) I picked up the shade Cashmere. It’s the perfect shade for me. Like I said in my face of the day today. It just was too thick and to cakey, but that might have been because I used too much. I will try it again this week coming and see if i can get along with it, if not I will declutter it. On the right is ELF Hydrating Camo Concealer ($6 at Ulta for .203 fluid ounces) I chose the shade Light Sand…. it’s too pink based for me but I am going to try to make it work.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation ($39 for 1 fluid ounce at Ulta) , Multi-use Sculpting Concealer ($29 for .5 fluid ounces at Ulta) , and Turn Up The Light Face Palette ($42 for .17 ounces at Ulta)
The shades from left to right are Glow, Soft Focus, and Dazzle. I’ve used this palette 2 times already and I can tell you I really love the Soft Focus powder, it reminds me of the Hour Glass Ambient Light powders. I like the Glow Highlighter, it’s pretty and not too heavy. I just don’t like the Dazzle powder. It’s too glittery and dry textured.
I purchased the shade Warm Nude. It’s the perfect shade for me. I love this foundation so much!!! It’s dewy and full coverage, and melts into the skin seamlessly.
I purchased the shade vanilla. It’s the perfect shade for under the eyes, however this is such a thick formula. It creased like crazy. It took forever to blend it in. Now I might have used too much, so with that said I will try it again under the eyes using less product. If that doesn’t work I will keep this one to highlight the center of the face.
Burt’s Bees Blush in Bare Peach. I purchased this off Amazon for $8.99 for .017 ounces. You can find this at Target, Ulta, and CVS as well. This is just the perfect peach blush ever. My God daughter convinced me to purchase it and to try it out. I am so glad she did. I think this might be my new favorite blush of life.
Benefit Cookie Powder Highlighter ($30 at Ulta for .28 ounces). This is the most amazing highlighter ever!!! It’s super reflective and leaves the cheeks looking like the are wet. I am low key obsessed with this highlighter.
ELF Baked Eyeshadow Palette (I received this free as a gift with purchase on the ELF website however you can purchase it for $10 on their website) This is in the color way California. This palette does not swatch well at all. The shadows felt dry and dusty and rough. I don’t have high hopes for this palette, but I will try it out next week.
ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencils $5 for .002 ounces… In the shade Deep Brown. These are back ups. I am still working on the pencil I have.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34 at Sephora) and Lip Cheat Lip Liner ($22 at Sephora) both in the shade Pillow Talk (a nude pink). This hands down is my favorite lip color of life!!! This lipstick is very comfortable, doesn’t feather into the lip lines, and wears down evenly. The lip pencil is long wearing and doesn’t budge.
Well That’s all for now dolls. Thanks for hanging in there to the end. Stay tuned tomorrow when I test out the full line of Believe Beauty makeup. Until then I hope you have a great day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
