Mini Makeup Haul & Review

I had some fun the other day when I went shopping and got myself some new makeup products! I thought I’d share what products I got and review them.


Here Is an overview of all the products I purchased.


Starting off with the basics, I purchased the Neutrogena shine control primer in hopes of controlling the shine that I tend to get on my t-zone. I really like how this product works, the rice protein complex does feel a bit weird at first if you’re not used to the texture. But since using this product I have notice less shine and oil build up!

I’ve always been a fan of Maybelline, when I first started wearing makeup I started using this brand, so it’s no surprise to me that I’ve stuck with it. I currently use this product mixed with my BB cream (also from Maybelline) I like that with this product a little goes a long way. The texture is very smooth and the coverage is great!

Another Maybelline product. I’ve actually been using this concealer since I’ve started wearing makeup. It’s lightweight and the coverage isn’t bad, but I do wish it would cover some off my dark spots or acne scars a bit better.

I’ve been hearing a lot about the color correctors lately and I was very interested in trying one. I found this product for a decent price at TJ Maxx and thought I’d give give it a try. Each color does something different, such as concealing redness or neutralizing dark circles. The problem that I had with this product was that I felt like I had too put a lot of the product on and still didn’t notice any of the changes that it claimed to make. This is the first and only color correcting palette that I’ve tried, so I’m not sure how other products work. But I don’t think I’ll be sticking to this one.

NYX is another good brand that I like and use. Highlighters are the new craze now-a-days so I was so excited to get my hands on this product. To be honest I’m not hundred percent sure if this product is meant to cover the entire face, but i’ve been using it on the top of my cheek bones to give me a more sculpted look and emphasize my face and cheeks. This product also comes in the colors Sunbeam, Gleam, Pure Gold, and Sun Goddess.

I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about e.l.f. some saying that the products are good and at a good price. Others saying the opposite, so I was a bit hesitant to try any products.  For awhile now I’ve been looking for a matte eyeshadow palette but didn’t really feel like putting up the big bucks for one. Especially since I am still new to makeup and wasn’t sure if i’d be able to create the looks I was going for with my makeup. However I really love this “Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette” by e.l.f. the pigment in the shadows show up very well and I love that I can create simple everyday looks.

 Like the concealer, I have actually used this product before. I really like using clear mascara every now and then on those days that I’m feeling lazy or trying to achieve that “no makeup” makeup look. It fans out my lashes and curls them nicely. I also use it on my eyebrows to set them into place without making them look too thick or bulky.
