    Makeup by Mario Surreal Skin Foundation

    We all have that one product. You know what I mean, that one product for when you need to look good. I’m talking about that one product that you can always depend on. For me, this is that product. The brand Makeup by Mario is a newer brand that is currently sold at Sephora and on the Makeup by Mario website. I believe he only has one foundation at the moment, and it’s this one. This foundation retails for $42 at Sephora. It provides medium coverage and is advertised to provide a natural finish. I would agree with both of those claims. When I wear this foundation my skin doesn’t…

    Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue

    My general daily makeup looks is something that looks put together and polished but not necessarily like a full-glam look. This has to be one of my most repurchased products. This product is marketed as a tinted moisturizer and I would disagree with that description (but more on that later). This product is available at Ulta, Sephora or on Bare Minerals‘ website. This product retails for $37 and I wear the shade vanilla. You may be able to find this product at Macys or Nordstrom but I have never looked for it there so I’m not 100% sure. Despite this product being marketed as a tinted moisturizer, I would say…

This product is marketed as a cc cream that has anti-aging properties in it.

    Tarte Maracuj√° Juicy Glow Foundation

    The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty event has just passed again. In case you are unfamiliar, the Ulta 21 days of Beauty is a sale event where Ulta places certain products 50% off for one day only. This year this Tarte foundation was one of the products that I picked up on the sale to try. If you are unfamiliar with Tarte, they are a mid-tier luxury brand whose brand is rooted more in being natural. I am not making the claim that they are a “clean beauty” brand (because what does that even mean) but that is the way that Tarte brands themselves. They are cruelty free. This product…
