Review: Hourglass Concealer and Brush 

Hey Aspirers! 

Recently I’ve received a package from Influester to review a product by Hourglass. The package came the day I left for my trip so I couldn’t review it until now. There is a video below on my review plus some extras you didn’t get from my video. 

Again I want to thank Influester and Hourglass for sending me this product to review.

Below is a fact sheet on the Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick. I love how there are so many shades so you’ll be able to find the shade you are looking for. 

Remember in the video I mentioned you dont have to apply concealer with this makeup? Well here is a comparison of my Bobbi Brown concealer and Vanish. You can tell how thick Vanish is next to Bobbi Brown.

#favFriday: Everyday Makeup

     

  
When it comes to my everyday makeup routine I like to look as natural as possible so if you want to know how I get my look continue reading.

I’ve listed my favorite makeup products to complete my everyday makeup routine below. I’ve listed the makeup in the order I apply them. 

1. Eyebrows 

 
I can’t leave my house without my eyebrows looking good. I’ve tried brow kits and brow pencils but the color is either too light or too dark. So I started using an eyeliner pencil and I haven’t put it down yet. 

  • Where to purchase: Ulta 

2. Concealer 

 
Before this product I would buy Smashbox concealer but I thought $20 was way too much for a concealer stick. I came across this shade and it works just as good and it last longer. I use concealer to shape and smooth my eyebrows out. I also apply it before I put on my foundation to hide blemishes and highlight under my eyes after I put on my foundation.

  • Where to purchase: Walmart

3. BB Cream

  
Before using BB cream I didn’t know what it was until I started watching different YouTube channels. One day I was in the makeup aisle and decided to try it out. I love how light weight it felt on my face. Before using this I would use MAC liquid foundation. Between the two I wouldn’t go back to MAC. BB cream makes my skin look more even and I love the cheaper price. 

  • Where to purchase: Walmart

4. Press Power

 After applying my BB cream I apply my press powder to blend and lighten my face back to the original color. The BB cream and the powder combine creates my exact skin color.  

  • Where to purchase: Walmart

5. Eyelashes

 

One thing I wish I have is longer eyelashes and thanks to this mascara it makes me look like I have some.  

  • Where to purchase: Walmart

Here are some pros and cons for using my makeup.

Pros:

  • Great price
  • Easy to apply
  • Great for women of color

Cons: 

  • Not available in all Walmarts
  • Small selection in stores 
  • The color names isn’t the same with all the products so it’s a little confusing on deciding which color is right for you. 

I hope you enjoyed reading my favorite makeup products for my makeup routine. You can also visit Ulta website and Black Radiance website to purchase these items as well.
