Makeup That I Have Replaced

Everyone has a collection of some sort. I just collect and try a lot of makeup. In my makeup shelf were the everyday makeup lives I sometimes feel the need to change up some of my makeup that has become holy grails. It is not to say that the makeup that has been replaced is not good anymore …I found something better.

It takes a lot for me to switch when it comes to foundations, powders or concealers. These products have been my holy grails for a month some years. So in this post, we will be talking about why they have been replacing by the new kids on the block.

It takes a lot for me to switch when it comes to foundations, powders or concealers. These products have been my holy grails for a month some years. So in this post, we will be talking about why they have been replacing by the new kids on the block.

Powders
Black Opal vs REVOLUTION BANANA POWDER

Power has never been a big deal till now. I never really looked at the powers like I do now. Many months ago brought the Black Opal Powder in the medium. I really never had a problem with it. It sat well under my eyes. Having that yellow powder under your eyes really does make a difference in your make up.

I always never had the guts to try a much yellow and warm powder. The Black pole is a light brown powder. It’s perfect for every day.

Then Revolution can and took over. I can’t tell you how much respect I have for powders. This powder has really made my makeup looks so beautiful. That way I reach for it more now the Black Opal. It has made me enjoy my make up routine so much. In my hight and contour video, I do mention that I use it on my night time makeup looks.

But that quickly changed when I got the hang of placing the product under my eyes.

Concealers.
LA Girl Concealer vs Maybelline Superstay Concealer

Never did I think I will lever the La Girl relationship. It was the first concealer I got when I really started creating looks. To this day its a concealer that will be found in every makeup kit. For the longest time, I saw no concealer that came closes till. It was not my intention but the Maybelline Superstay Concealer came highly recommended. I had to see what the hype was about.

Earlier or was it late in December I got the Maybelline Superstay Concealer. Now I had tried the Fit me and let just say if it were to be discontinued  I wouldn’t care much. So going into this purchase I had already had a positive out lookin’ the Superstay with the foundation that I still love to this day. These concealers are not the same in price and formula the LA Girl is more creamy ae thicker than Maybelline Superstay Concealer. Of which is much drying. The reason why the LA Girl is currently taking a back seat it’s because of the hight coverage that it gives me. So I don’t build my concealers up.

Foundations
Wet n Wild vs Nyx Born To Glow

Once I found Wet n Wild I honestly thought no foundation would actually come close. I found this foundation when my skin was not at its best and it coved my acne spots so well without it cracking me out. I just heard on to it so much in a couple of weeks it becomes my most used foundation. I recommend it to so many acne-prone skin babes in the last two years. Its hight coverages sit well not my face ..I don’t have a lot of things I don’t like about this foundation. It’s just been recently released it had two years running sitting pretty on the front row.

Nyx has fast become my go-to in the drugstore. Ever since I brought the Can’t Stop won’t Spot foundation I have not passed the Nyx section at Clicks. Without me looking at what’s new. Am always in the mood to try out new foundations and on that day I saw the Born To Glow foundation.

I picked it up.

I haven’t done a review here on the blog but you can go watch my full thoughts of the foundation here. I have never found a foundation that makes my skin look good. Am always looking the fixer and hide for cover. This foundation makes my skin look healthy any current skin situation is on pause which means no acne currently. We are heading to the cooler months and a glow it what on the menu. That’s the only reason wet n wail is taking a back seat.

It will change these products. I love trying different makeup products. As brands release, different products or us t try. Hope you enjoyed this post till next time…
