Makeup Forever Mat Velvet & Full Coverage Concealer Review

Well hello there beautiful, thanks for stopping by. Today's review is my favorite I shall say. Let me give you all a little background to how this review came about. I only review the BEST makeup out there. So please sit down and relax. Lol because this is about to get good.

So last week I went to my Sephora to look for a full coverage foundation. I have oily skin on my face so trying to find that without help was going to be a mission. So my first color match was done by a guy. My theory about guys and makeup, they're better than us women. Hands down. So anyways, he matched me to the Kat Von D tattoo foundation which is supposed to be the best full coverage right now. At the store yes the color matched. I was excited to wear it the next day to work. And I did....looking like a ghost from the grave. Ugh. Great. Another trip to Sephora. So a couple days later I go back. Different gal tells me that with the Kat Von D foundation is a bit tricky. You either match it or you don't So, she recommended me the Clinique foundation. Matched me, took it home and again couldn't wait to try it in the morning for work. Again, the biggest fail. I look pale and oh my goodness it didn't fit me at all. Went back to Sephora the next day BUT to a different Sephora. Told them my annoyance of coming for the 3rd time. She said sit down I know the perfect foundation for you. And she brought out the Makeup Forever Mat Velvet foundation. Tried it on and wow, perfect match. I asked her then how I needed a full coverage under eye foundation. She then came out with the Makeup Forever concealer. Bam perfect match. I guess 3rd time is a charm for some of us. Anyways here is my picture after applying the makeup on. My skin looks flawless, fresh and I just feel wonderful. Makeup Forever is my new best friend.

Here is my flawless picture. I have very dark under eye circles and you can't tell I do on here. I did not touch up anything this is the original photo. Very amazing products. Very satisfied and happy that I bought these items.

Bath & Body Works Candle Review

Have you ever bought a candle that was highly recommended by You-Tubers or those "advertisers" whom claim to so be "obsessed" with an "amazing" candle? Yeah I think we've all been there before. Well, on Monday  I decided to stop by Bath and Body Works to check out their candles. This week you can grab their 3 wick candles 2/$22 each one is individually priced at $22.50 and above. I wasn't going to buy any candles because I really didn't need them nor did I believe they give that aroma I expect. And for that price I really expected a lot from their candles. Anyways, I smelled almost all of their candles and I only liked, not love, 2 scents, Hawaiian Hibiscus and Red Guava Lava. The only ones that caught my attention. Anyways, got home and turned on the Hawaiian candle first. I couldn't get the wick to turn on so I kept trying to turn on the wicks. After my 4th attempt I finally started them off. I loved the look of the wicks burning it looked very relaxing and just something I can stare at. At first I didn't smell anything at all. I let an hour pass and still nothing. I left it on over night to see if something would give off and it did...just a little. I was kind of disappointed because I knew it was too good to be true. But then again some of you may have experienced differently than I have.

So for their candles overall I would give them a 7/10. The presentation of the candle and the look of them I rate them a 10/10. Their pricing for the candle I rate them a 5/10. Reason being is because who would want to pay over 20 bucks for a candle that's not really going to give a strong scent? I want my money's worth. I would honestly pay the most 8 bucks for this candle if I were to give it it's worth. I truly believe if anyone is going to be honest about a product I would be the first to raise my hand. Thank you for stopping by!
