BLOG Review: Lorac Real Life to Red Carpet Pro Face Tutorial Kit

Hello Everyone,
Long time no see for the last week, I'm really sorry about that but I'm back and ready to go!
So in today's blog post I'm going to be sharing my thoughts on the PRO Face Tutorial Makeup Kit by Lorac. Anyone who has followed me for a while be it here on my Blog or on my Youtube channel you'd know I love Lorac Makeup, the PRO Palette is one of my ultimate favorites and a few weeks back I brought and fell in love with the Lorac PRO To Go Palette, which is perfect for my travelling \ work days etc.

So this Kit you can find at Ulta and online at Amazon, mine came from Ulta. It retails for $42 US Dollars and because it's a value kit your saving a great amount of money, as it's true value is $140. That's close to $100 off which is amazing value. So what so you get?!

This Kit includes 5 Items which 4 of them are full size!
POREfection Mattifying Face Primer - Travel Size 24.1 ml
Lorac PRO Mini Palette - 3 Shades 5.1g
Lorac PRO Mascara in Black -…


Hello Everyone,
Today's video is one I'm really excited to share with you all, I have been a mad lover and user of the Beauty Blender since I finally caved in and brought it last year in July. Yes I know I was late on experiencing the joys of this pink sponge, but $20 in any world is a lot of money for what is essentially a makeup Sponge.  So after having brought it, I used it SO SO much because from off the 1st use I was sold and hooked on it, using this to apply my foundations, made my foundation ( & Concealer) look like skin, it gave almost an invisible barrier between my skin and makeup, that I loved so in a nut shell it gave skin the flawless look I had always wanted.  
Now I will admit that I have ever since than also been on the Dupe lookout too, cause $20 to spend every 3 months in replacing the sponge is a little hefty on the wallet and yes I'm Germ-phobic so after a while just washing and disinfecting it just dosen't make it look as or feel as clean as it…

TUTORIAL: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Look 2: Everyday Pink

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all had a great weekend? Today's video is a 2 in 1 review video for Hourglass Foundations!
I have been using the Hourglass Immaculate Mattifying Foundation and the Veil Fluid Makeup for a while now about 3 months on & off.
I have Combination Skin, so I'm oily in the T-Zone area and I have dry Cheeks etc. Both foundations do have Pros and Cons..... well not so much cons but just ways best to be applied for best results. Anyways if you'd like to see my thoughts please check out my review video on them!
