Update on Pat McGrath Skin Fetish

Real quick, ok I have been wearing nude nonstop for the past few days (the powder over the balm on the highest points of my cheeks), and I have never ever received compliments on my highlighter until I wore this. Id get complimented on my eye shadow, tattoos, blush, glasses, handbag. Never my highlighter. I get complimented at least 3 times a day from people when I go out. At Ulta, Sephora, Chipotle, Grocery Store, drugstore. Its been really great, and this product definitely deserves all the admiration.

I just wanted to add that in because it was such a shock to me to get people really responding to it. My makeup skills are meh, so usually I get compliments on outfit or accessories. But this highlighter is getting all the attention.

It’s still the best! And I have noticed it lasts all day.

So yeah! Thanks Pat McGrath!

Look at that beautiful color!

Overall I love the concept. Its so pretty, and I have been coveting this forever! Also the pigment is nice and rich, and overall I to say I am loving this. I also love the whimsey of the characters.

 

I will post a proper review of it soon!

So yes, super love/loved it all.

My Favorite Bronzers!

My complexion is fast improving but it isn’t there yet. So for foundations or any base make up really I need decent/high coverage. Since I am a pasty white any and all base make ups usually completely remove any sort of color I’d have on my face, so I need a good bronzer to help me not look so ghoulish!

I have a lot of different brands of bronzers, but I generally stick to these guys more then any.

Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder

Color 2 Douce Croisière – light tan

s1411370-main-hero

This has a nice color for my skin tone, and I love the slightly shimmery finish of it. Has a very light feel. I usually use a big powder brush when I apply this. It has nice long wear, and doesn’t feel heavy or get cakey. I also love its blendability!

Urban Decay – Naked Flushed

 Color Palette Native

s1591866-main-hero

When I first saw this I wasn’t to sure, but it was on sale and I thought MEH why not. Well,I fell in LOVE with this set! I use the highlighter all the time, and the blush I use a lot as well, but that bronzer, so good! It gives me a very slight sun kissed look without making it look like I have to much makeup on. I use a mini kabuki brush for this.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer

 Color Sunshine

I really like this one (well obviously! It’s on this list!) But I do have a few specific reasons why A- because it is so affordable. and B because when I use this I will also use it as an eyeshadow and I love that look so much! I find if I want a simple easy look for just around the house, or to go get groceries or a quick bite to eat, using bronzer as an eye color as well as face makeup gives me a polished effortless look. This bronzer is the one I usually do this with because the color is so flattering for my skintone, and for my brown eyes.

BareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color

MY FIRST BRONZER! Seriously, I still have it too! this stuff lasts forever and goes such a long way. I initially thought the color would be to much for me but it looks so nice on! Sometimes I will layer this with my Urban Decay one for a more chiseled look!

I will be ending this list with my Holy Grail Bronzer!!!! ❤

Guerlain Teracotta Bronzing Powder

Color 3

Love love LOOOOVE

Everything about this I just love. I love how easy it is to apply. I love the color. I love how it might look too dark for me, but it matches so GOOD! I could throw away all my make up and just live with a nice foundation, mascara and this bronzer forever!!!!!

I probably own about 15 bronzers but these are definitely my faves! ❤
