10 Hyped Up Products that are Worth the Hype

  1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
    • This is the first concealer that I’ve ever tried for highlighting and it is PERFECT! It is full coverage (will cover acne marks) yet lightweight and it blends out easily!
  2. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
    • One of my favorites!
    • Beautiful color (kind of warm but not too warm) – will look nice on many skin tones. I use medium/deep.
  3. MAC Cosmetics Give Me Sun Bronzer
    • If you haven’t tried this, what are you doing with your life? But seriously, THE BEST BRONZER! You need this in your life.
  4. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
    • My holy grail. Haven’t tried anything better. Don’t need too.
  5. Ben Nye Translucent Setting Powders
    • Love using this on those nights that I want to look extra special. I use the “Pretty Pink”  color because it gives me that “bright and blushing” type of look that I love. Don’t worry it’s not crazy pink – just has a subtle pink hue.
  6. Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter
    • I apply it onto my face and blend it in with my fingers and it blends beautifully.
    • Perfect for a subtle glow. I like it because it looks like I’m glowing from within.
    • Powder highlighters can be layered on top for extra glow!
  7. Smashbox Photo Primer
    • I honestly do see a difference in my pictures when I use this primer. It smooths out my face while also helping to control the amount of oil that peaks through my makeup during the day
  8. Huda Beauty Eyelashes
    • A little pricey but worth it
      • Order from Sephora’s website for cheaper shipping $
    • You may think all eye lashes are the same, but trust me, when you use her eye lashes that will definitely change. They are amazing! My favorites are Samantha, Giselle, and Sasha.
  9. Hourglass Blushes
    • B E A U T I F U L
    • The blush that I have – ethereal glow – has really fine sparkles in it (but doesn’t make your face sparkly) and it is so pretty!
    • Dying to try their strobe lighting powders!
    • Elegant packaging
  10. Tarte “Tarteist” Clay Paint Liner
    • This is jet black and super matte! Literally the most matte eyeliner I’ve tried!
    • Apparently it comes in gold and silver too online – super excited to try those!

Two Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme!

As someone who has short eyelashes, I was ecstatic when I heard about Too Faced Better than False Lashes Extreme! I heard two girls talking about it in line at Ulta and I was like OMG that’s on my makeup wish list for sure!

You can definitely see a difference in eyelash length between the “Better Than Sex (BTS)” mascara and the “Better than False Lashes Extreme! (BTFLE)” mascara (excuse the bad pic quality for this one – didn’t fill my eyebrows in-yikes).

Directions for BTFLE: Apply mascara from the gold tube, then add fibers from the white tube, then apply mascara again from the gold tube.

After months of using BTFLE ($35), here are my thoughts:

  • The mascara in the gold tube is somewhat different than the BTS mascara – it’s thinner/more fluid but I like it! It glides on so much easier!
  • It works better than the BTS mascara but it isn’t better than actual false lashes
  • It’s perfect for those nights where you want extra oomph but don’t want the drama of false lashes (like out to dinner or on a date)
    • I wouldn’t wear it everyday because I’m bad at removing mascara so I don’t want to sleep with fibers on my lashes.

Here is a picture of me wearing actual false lashes for comparison:

You know you love me…haha jk any Gossip Girl lovers out there?

Review: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤
Huda Beauty makes some of my favorite makeup products. . I finally decided to purchase her liquid matte lipsticks and my expectations were HIGH. I got the shade trendsetter. Here are my thoughts:

Pigmentation:
The pigmentation is great! No patchiness and it is very opaque!

Longevity:
Lasts a pretty long time – hours on hours on hours! If you eat you might have to reapply. However, I ate this morning and it lasted through my cereal.

Quality:
The formulation is wonderful. It feels so luxurious and high quality. It’s very lightweight, and that’s a quality that’s hard to find in matte liquid lipsticks. The finish is matte but it is NOT DRYING at all. Not even a tiny bit. It’s so soft. It can feel just a tad bit sticky but not lip gloss sticky. When I wear a chapstick underneath it feels perfectly fine though.

If you’ve tried her liquid mattes, what are your favorite colors? I want all of them!!

Xoxo, Sayeedah
