I’ve come across a lot of great makeup tools, brands and profiles lately. I figured I’d make a list to share them with all of you. All tools and makeup listed are brands or products I have used or still use. The profiles are a nice way to share makeup tips from others I follow.

I thought I’d share some of the brands I’ve used and I love. I have been able to try a few new brands lately as well as my usual standards. The list below highlights some of the products I use.

Brand and Product Links


I recently used Clarins lip oil and I had used their lip gloss in the past.

Lip Oil


I’ve used a variety of CoverGirl products over the years. I love their foundation. I’ve used all of their products at one time or another.


I really loved the L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks. They are long-lasting. I have also tried their eyeshadows too.

Makeup Forever
Makeup Forever was a new addition to my collection. I was able to try a free sample of their foundation. I was surprised by it and very happy with it.

Marc Jacobs Beauty

Marc Jacobs Beauty is also a new additionKabuki Makeup Brush to my makeup collection. I had fun trying out their Highliner eyeliners. I was able to try 2 recently. Pink on Me and Grapevine.


Velvet Noir Mascara


Like CoverGirl, Maybelline has been one of my go-to products for years. That being said I’ve used a variety of their products as well. from eyeliner to eyeshadow. They are all long lasting and work well. In my opinion anyway.

Prestige Cosmetics

Prestige was another new find for me. They are budget friendly with most items under $13. I found the products I used worked well.

This is another one of my tried and true stand by-products. I have used a few variety of their items over the years. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to review their newest line and I loved it.

Youth FX

I will admit with this makeup set results will vary from person to person. I found it did help blur fine lines but not large wrinkles.


I’ve used a few products from Skin2Spirit. The eyeshadow I tried was lovely. The lipglosses are hydrating as well.

Eye Shadow


Urban Decay

Urban Decay was another new addition to my makeup collection. Thanks ot a free sample I was able to try out their latest mascara.

Trave-Size Troublemaker Mascara

This mascara did volumize my lashes and made them look fuller. This may vary from person to person.

Vapour Organic Beauty

This is another company I happened upon thanks to a friend. Vapour Beauty product samples I tried were long lasting and high quality.

Aurua Multi Use Clasic

This product can be used on your lips, face, and eyes. It has great coverage along with great pigment

Halo Illumnator

This illuminator surprised me. It offers a great shimmer to any skin tone. When the light hits your face it gives you a lovely glow. A small amount goes a long way.

Siren Lipstick

This lipstick is creamy and long lasting. It’s also available in a variety of shades to fit your needs.

Wet N Wild

This is another company I love because it’s budget-friendly. I love their eyeshadow trio’s and their singles. They are long lasting and highly pigmented. I also love the lipsticks as well.The colors are rich and long-lasting. I also came across a highlighter cushion product that I fell in love with too this year.

Eye Shadow Products

Lip Color

Mega Cushion Highlight

I came across this product one day while I was shopping. I had been interested in trying a highlighter but wasn’t sure where to start. when I saw the price I figured I’d give it a try. Well, I love it.It comes with an applicator pad. I like to use a brush to apply it. It’s a moist highlighter. I also like to use it over or under eyeshadow to give it a pop of shimmer.

In this section, I’d like to share some of the profiles I like to follow. I always learn something new from these profiles.
