Prada Candy Kiss: IMG_1744

I love the Prada Candy line so of course when I saw there was a new one I had to try it. I feel in love with the scent instantly. It’s the perfume I never knew I needed. It is sweet smelling without being too much and it has this seductive scent in it that is just really alluring. This product retails for $98 at Sephora for a 1.7 oz bottle.

 

 

 

Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara: IMG_1483

I bought a travel size of this mascara in a set by Sephora called Totally Obsessed Set (which is now out of stock). I did not instantly fall in love with this mascara, however once I tried it a few times I figured out how to make sure my lashes would not clump and would stay looking soft and fluffy. This mascara is amazing once you figure out what works best for you with application. I like to gently apply my mascara and then go through with a clean mascara brush to un-clump my lashes, then wait a few second for the mascara to dry a bit and then build my lashes up with more mascara. I recently bought the waterproof version of this mascara and I can’t wait to wear it when I go to the beach! This product retails for $30 at Sephora for a full size.

Urban Decay Naked Foundation: IMG_1730

I already wrote a review on this foundation so I will not go on a huge rant about it. However if you do not feel like reading my previous review all I will say is that this foundation is perfect for summer and for people who want a foundation that is light weight and has minimal coverage but is buildable. I fell in love with this foundation because it literally feels like there is nothing on your face and I do not worry about my skin becoming oily and breaking out. This foundation retails for $47 at Sephora.

Vichy Normaderm Corrective Anti Acne Treatment: IMG_1747

I wanted to try a moisturizer that would help my face feeling hydrated without getting oily so I was recommended this product by a beauty expert. She told me to wash my face at night and then put on this moisturizer, and then in the morning to just wipe my face with toner (I have been using cleansing water). There has definitely been a difference in my skins appearance and while my acne has not completely gone away my breakouts are becoming fewer and I find my skin has not been very oily for the past month. I have used Vichy products in the past and I am probably going to go back to using them exclusively. This product retails for $29.99 CAD

Urban Decay Naked Foundation

I decided to try this foundation because I wanted to try a light coverage foundation for the summer and honestly my skin looks and feels better since I have started using  . The other foundations I have tried have all been medium to full coverage. I always noticed that by the end of the day I have noticeable lines around my mouth from my foundation and my face feels caky and gross; this is after a full day and usually if I walk home from school (which takes about 30 minutes) or if I wear a full face of makeup to work (wear my skin tends to get pretty oily because I am constantly moving). Because this foundation is light weight the coverage is sheer and it just helps to even skin tone. It did help to cover my blemishes as well, but concealer is still needed.

I have noticed a bit of a difference since I have started using this foundation. My skin does not feel heavy when I wear it and I have noticed fewer breakouts after. My skin tends to breakout pretty easily so I try to keep it as clean as possible and I do not wear foundation often because of this. However with this foundation I feel comfortable enough to wear it all day and not worry about it irritating my skin and causing any breakouts. My skin tends to get pretty oily while I am at work so I pretty much never wear makeup but with this foundation I feel comfortable enough to wear it to work and not worry about my face getting too oily or causing my skin to get irritated.

I use the lightest shade on this foundation (0.5)  which is for very fair porcelain with subtle pink undertones. This is a tad lighter than what my face it but it blends in well with my neck and once I contour a bit and add some bronzer my face looks normal and no longer washed out. My skin and my face especially has a lot of pink in it so this helps to neutralize all that pink.

This product retails for $47 at Sephora. I purchased this at my local beauty store.

Update: I later tried mixing my shade with one that was slightly darker and found that I was able too make a better match for my skin tone.
