#1 BENEFIT Precisely,My Brow Pencil
OPINION: This thin pencil tip is easy for manipulation for people who are unfamiliar on how to shape their brows. The shades are better color coded compared to Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil.
#2 Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation
RETAIL PRICE: 52.00$
OPINION: This medium coverage foundation is amazing for photo shoots and pictures. Makeup artists tend to use this HD foundation on models. It gives a satin finish without making the skin look dull. It’s the perfect combo of transforming your uneven skin into a healthy glow.
#3 Urban Decay vice lipstick shade: RED
RETAIL PRICE: 22.00$ AMAZON PRICE: 10.00$
OPINION: This seems a reasonable price for a high brand at Sephora. The lipsticks come in more than 50 different shades and have a diversity of finishes; matte, satin, metallic, and shimmer. Either way, Drugstore store brands are slowly rising up their prices. In my experience, this lipstick can last up to 6-8 hours with two applications in a day.
#4 Benefits Cosmetics Blush Rockateur
RETAIL PRICE: 38.00$ AMAZON PRICE: 15.00$
OPINION: This shimmery blush can be combined as a highlighter and making your cheeks rosy at the same. You’ll be hitting two birds with one stone. It’s worth the investment because you’re saving time in the morning to apply an extra step to your makeup routine and you’re saving an extra 40$ for a highlighter product
#5 SEPHORA COLLECTION Smoothing and Brightening Concealer
RETAIL PRICE: 21. 00$ AMAZON PRICE: 7.00$
OPINION: This brightening concealer can brighten your under eyes and make your face more youthful. It gives a fresh look without accentuating your fine lines. Buying a reasonable priced concealer is important considering you are going to use on natural daily basis compared to a full coverage foundation.
#6 URBAN DECAY 24/7Glide-On Eye Pencil
RETAIL PRICE: 25.00$
OPINION: This eyeliner does not tug your eyelid. Its excellent quality gives a smooth texture and can last up to 12 hours. I didn’t do the test of 24 hours because I didn’t want to sleep with makeup on. Did you know studies show that you can age 8 days when you sleep with full faced makeup on. This brand sometimes has sales on the Sephora website. So this eyeliner can be retail at 12.50$.
#7 Urban Decay Mini Naked Basics Palette
RETAIL PRICE: 32.00$
OPINION: For a beginner, you shouldn’t invest too much money on an eyeshadow palette. It’s unnecessary considering you don’t even know which shade is going to suit your eyes. This small pallet is perfect for traveling and rush occasions such as applying makeup in the bus.
