Assorted Makeup Finds - I Love Right Now

May 17, 2017

Hello friends.  I hope you're all enjoying the week.  I have a fun post to share with you about some of my favorite makeup.  

As you all know I love makeup, and I enjoy finding new cosmetics to try out.  Here are a few makeup products I love using right now.  

MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Finish Powder Foundation.

I have always used liquid CC cream foundation or just regular liquid foundation in the past.  I decided to try a few years ago the Bare Minerals powder foundation and I loved it.  Unfortunately the powder foundation I liked is discontinued and not made anymore.  This Make Up For Ever powder foundation is another one that is just as good and I love it.  I like that there is a makeup sponge in the bottom of the case to apply the foundation.  This Make Up For Ever powder foundation is so easy to apply and it leaves a natural matte finish to your face.  This foundation is so perfect for travel as it's not a liquid and it won't spill in your makeup bag.   

Tarte - Tartelette Tease Amazonian Clay Matte Palette.

I discovered this cute eyeshadow palette, when a family member gave this to my daughter for Christmas.  I loved the eyeshadow colors in this palette so much, that I bought one for myself.  The colors are different shades of light tan/brown and perfect for everyday wear.  They are easy to apply with a makeup brush.  

Makeup tip:  I always apply eyeshadow primer to my lids before applying eyeshadow, so that the eyeshadow stays and lasts longer on my eyelids.  

I like using the whisper color on my lids and wink color in the crease of my eyes.  I have also used the darker colors for evenings if I'm going out.  

NYX Matte Lip Liner.

I used to use an Avon lip liner that I loved for years but have since changed to this lip liner.  This matte lip liner works well when applied to my lips, and it comes in many colors.  I really love that these lipliners only cost $4.  I use this lip liner before I apply any type of lipstick or lipgloss.  I always use a natural colored lip liner to go with any color lipstick or lipgloss.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush.

I discovered this blush when I was given a sample size of this from Sephora.  This is a good blush and the colors available are natural and the shades look very pretty when applied to your face.

Tarte - Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paint.

This lip paint was also discovered when I received this as a sample from Sephora.  I am in their (Sephora) system and received the sample size of blush and lip paint for my birthday.

I love this lip paint and it's a matte lip gloss.  This is one of my favorites and it stays on your lips for hours when used with a lip liner.  The color I received is birthday suit which is a nude color and just perfect for day wear.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy some of my makeup finds.

Have you used any of these makeup products?  I'd love to know.

  1. I always love your make up reviews! You could probably help me...give me a make over! heehee! I use Bare Minerals so I would like to try the one you mentioned first. I don't wear a lot of makeup, just cover up and mineral makeup and lip gloss. Oh wait...I went to get my cover up. I just started using it and it works great and you can buy it anywhere....Rimmel Match perfection. I use it to hide the dark circles under my eyes. Have you tried it? Hugs!!!

  2. Hello, I have used the mascara from the Tarte brand, it was really a nice one. I also love new makeup! I need to wear it as my eyes are so tiny! And yes a good foundation is always so nice to find one that does not make your skin look dried out! I do hope you have a great day!
    Always, Roxy

  3. I always enjoy your makeup reviews, my friend, and I trust your guidance. I have been using Estee Lauder products and am in love with their foundation, concealer, and mascara. The pro-finish powder you mentioned sounds lovely and I will have to try is sometime.


  4. I am going to have to look in the Tarte aisle next time I am at Ulta, Julie! Thanks for the tips. I love getting the inside scoop from people who like and use a product! Enjoy the sunshine. xo

  5. I'm a fan of Makeup forever...

  6. Although I wear less makeup than I used to, I still use mascara, blush, concealer and lipstick as my daily routine. I don't use eye shadow or lip liner much unless I'm going 'out' usually. I haven't tried any of these products but I did try one of the concealer you recommended and liked it a lot.

    Enjoy your weekend Julie! The temps are really creeping up! Suppose to be close to 100 today!


  7. I think I'd like to try the Tarte palette. The colors on the one you showed are really nice.

  8. Thanks for the reviews! I wish I could come over and have you show me how to use all of these. I am useless when it comes to applying makeup! It tried the powder foundation and I was amazed at how great it made my skin look....until a few hours later it all seemed to disappear! I still use liquid :-( :-) Happy Sunday!

  9. Thanks Julie, I always appreciate product reviews~
