MAC Large Contour Brush 168 and Blending Brush 217 Reviews

I am not a big Mac person, mostly because it is overly popular for my taste. I know I am weird like that. But I got Mac large contour brush 168 and blending brush 217 as christmas gifts last year. I was excited to try them, as I am more into all purpose fuss free makeup tools. My brushes are functional, but I feel like they could be better. Anyways, back to the review.

Mac Large Contour Brush 168: I think this is pretty well reviewed brush. I like the size for my face and taste, because it applies my blushes and bronzers in just the right amount in just the right place without over doing it. I think the angle makes it so much easier to use for any blush or bronzers. My only complaint is that the bristles are on the rough side and I could use more softness, but for the price, I think it works. 

Mac Blending Brush 217: It might be excessive to review this brush. But I will put my two cents in anyway. The blending power and versatility of this brush is just amazing. I can't praise it enough. I didn't know what blending brushes are supposed to be doing until I got the 217. My only complaint is again its softness. I think it is bit too rough for my taste. Otherwise, I will purchase it in multiples.

Physician's Formula Bronze Booster in Light-Medium Review


Physician's formula bronze booster in light-medium is the only bronzer I have, not because I am in love with it, mostly because I just don't use bronzers much. If it is too subtle I don't see much of a difference, and when it makes a difference, it is just too much for my taste. It could also be due to me not having the perfect bronzer too. Who knows...

Anyways, generally this Physician's formula bronze booster is pretty well reviewed bronzer in the drugstore store range, and people really love it because it is neither orange and muddy and blends really well. I do agree with all of those. So if you like natural bronzers, you might like this one for a little over $10. 

I myself will keep using this until I buy another bronzer that might make me a bronzer girl, but for now I am more of a blush person if not anything.

American flag skull tee and denim short

Sunglasses: Tahari // Shorts: American Eagle // Tshirt: TJ Maxx // Shoes: BCBG Generation

I went to Target I think this day. I was studying again and Nate thought I needed a break, so I did take it. It is starting to become a habit haha. My study breaks reminded by Nate are going to be the reason why there will still be outfit posts on the blog. 

I really like the t-shirt I got from TJ Maxx, although skull and such things are normally not my style. I googled the brand, but it does not seem exist online lol. Has that ever happen to you? You find something awesome somewhere, but the name on the tag is nowhere to be found. Anyways that is it... going back to studying.

Lip glosses and balms I have been trying: Revlon. L'oreal, Blistex, Smith's

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glossess in Super Natural : When I was thinking about try this range, Lena from Lenallure recommended Super Natural to me. I actually ended up really liking the color, because it was as the name suggested, very natural basic gloss that is comfortable on the lips. 

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm : I have mentioned it in my winter essentials post last year. It is my holy grail lip balm for seriously chapped lips. It is cheap and effective period. 

L'oreal Infallible Le Gloss in Bloom : I really never liked lip glosses until recently. This one was the first one I bought for years of not using lip gloss. It is a quite nice one with awesome scent and taste, and I love the very subtle glitter, which is perfect for night out over lipsticks. Unfortunately, I find the formula to be a little bit rough on the lips. 

Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm : When people went crazy over Dior Creme De Rose, I wanted to try a lip palm in a tub, though I don't usually like the tub packaging for hygiene reasons. It is my version of being sucked into trend. My first impression was neutral and thought it was bit over priced. But now I really love it, color, formula, and cute packaging.

The First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay Review

I introduced a new cleanser into my skincare routine. It is the Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay from The First Aid Beauty. It is geared towards oily and combination skin. In general, I like it a lot, but I am not really wowed by it either. Though sometimes it is always that the one that is mediocre ends up being the perfect product because it is doing exactly what is supposed to do. I am wondering if FAB clay cleanser ends up being one of those.

Briefly, it is a red iridescent colored deep cleanser free of a few well known chemicals known to be skin irritant. It leaves skin very comfortable without stripping which is what I look for. During cleansing, it feels very cushiony and gelly unlike most gel cleanser that turns into foam completely. I feel completely neutral towards the texture. Overall, it might be worth a try for those of you who have acne prone skin that is sensitive.
