L'oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base Review

I have been using this new Loreal magic perfecting base for over a month. Let me just say that I love this primer. I have used other brands and none of them compare. It's so good that I have 3 backups just in case they discontinue it. Loreal has recently created a line of new products that were designed by professional makeup artists. This new line has several different products that are called studio secrets. This awesome primer is labeled as studio secret no.1. You can find this product at any local drugstore, which is great. It costs about $12 for .05oz which isn't a lot of product...but the good thing is that a little bit goes a long way. I've been using the same jar for over a month. This primer is super fluffy almost like a whipped mousse with a slightly pinkish color. I love how smooth this makes my skin feel. Another great quality is that it makes my foundation glide so smoothly onto my skin. My foundation blends easier and lasts so much longer. When I apply this primer, it almost acts like a mattifier. Which if you have oily skin like me, this is good! I would recommend this product to other people. I would buy this item again once I run out of my backups. I hope this review provided some helpful insight on this new product. If you all have any questions please feel free to email me at or you can simply leave a comment on my most recently uploaded video

Hopefully with this picture you all can see the consistancy of this product. An awesome whipped mousse!

Be on the look at for this packaging on your next drugstore trip!

Physician's Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner Review

Hello everyone. This blog post is going to be a review on the new Physician's Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiners. These were mentioned in my April favorites video. I mentioned in my video that I was going to post swatches here on my blog. I hope this review is helpful. If you haven't watched my april favorites video please do so. Thanks for watching my videos, subscribing to my channel and following my blog!!

This is what the custom eye enhancing gel liners look like. They are stackable which is great. I can choose the 3 shades I want when traveling or I can stack just 2 shades. I can even just take one shade with me. I purchased the eye enhancing gel liners for green and blues eyes. I know I don't have either of those eye colors but the gel liners are in the colors I was looking for. I purchased these at CVS. Unfortunately, I have not seen them in other drugstores. I would purchase these gel liners again. These are a great bargin item in drugstores. This new line of products designed for eye colors also include Shimmer Strips color enhanching mascara duos and Shimmer Strips color enhancing shadow & liner pop collection. These gel liners and other products come for all eye colors. Visit CVS or check your local drugstore for these products.

Here's the swatch for the Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner for green eyes. I love how pigmented these liners are. Another great perk is that they are cheap...around $11 for 3 stackable shades! These gel liners apply very smoothly. They last all day which is great.

Here's the swatch for the Custome Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiners for blue eyes. I really love these 3 shades. Great quality!
