Contour Palettes Review | Maybelline FaceStudio Master Contour vs Tarte Park Ave Princess

While sorting though my obscenely large makeup collection (I’m a beauty blogger… that’s how I justify it), I sometimes come across things that look similar or remind me of each other.  There not necessarily dupes, but they are comparable.  So after comparing the mothers’ of all contour palettes Anastasia Beverly Hills vs Kat Von D, I decided to put some other contour palettes to the test against each other.

Contour Palettes Review | Maybelline FaceStudio Master Contour vs Tarte Park Ave Princess

This time I’m trying the Maybelline FaceStudio Master Contour, a new drugstore contour palette, and having it battle side by side with an classic palette, the Tarte Park Ave Princess.  Here’s how it went down…

Mac Strobe Cream Dupe? The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter for Strobing

Here are Everyday Starlet we’re always on the quest for dupes.  So when I was organizing my makeup I happened to come across my Radiant Highlighter from The Body Shop.  I have used it for strobing before (is strobing still a thing, or is it over like fleek?)… so I got to thinking, could it be a MAC Strobe Cream Dupe?

Mac Strobe Cream Dupe? The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter for Strobing

I had never actually used my MAC Strobe Cream before.  It was so hyped up that I purchased it in a MAC haul and then forgot about it.

If you actually compare the swatches, they’re not exactly the same. However, they both have a pink, cool toned glow.

So I thought I would try them both as strobe creams side by side to see how the compare.  Here’s what I discovered….

The Best Primers For Sensitive Skin

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with primers over the years.  On the one hand, I love how smooth they make my skin, how much easier they make foundation application, and how long lasting they can make my makeup.  On the other hand, many of them make my skin red and irritated… and some even make my skin… gasp… break out.

The Best Primers For Sensitive Skin Review

So I went on a quest to find the ultimate primers for my overly sensitive skin.  I tried on each primer, and used the same foundation, and powder each day so I could get a scientific review of how each primer looked under makeup.  Here are the results…

Brie Bella Total Divas Inspired Makeup Look

Confession time: One of my guilty pleasures is watching Total Divas on E!.  Since Paul is also a wrestling fan, I see a lot of these ladies.

My favorite Divas are the Bella twins… and they’re obviously popular with fans because they’re getting their own spin off, Total Bellas.  Both Brie and Nikki Bella are stunning, and unbelievably in shape… so watching the show is great motivation to work out!  I’ve noticed in several episodes that Brie’s makeup is so stunning.  She frequently wears a chambray shirt, with mauve and pink, natural, yet flawless makeup.  I’ve been dying to recreate it.

Since Brie is very earth friendly, I chose to use mostly Kat Von D makeup, which is vegan and cruelty free.

The Best & Worst Full Coverage Foundations Review

This will be the final review in my foundation testing series, and I just may have saved the best for last.  I love a good full coverage foundation… something not too heavy, not too light, but juuuust right.  I was actually surprised that I didn’t have as many full coverage foundations as I thought.  Although in reality, you really only need one great one.

The Best & Worst Full Coverage Foundations Review

To keep my testing scientific and accurate, I tried to keep things consistent by using the same primer (my favorite Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure ), and the same face powder (the Clinique Blended Face Powder ).

The Best & Worst Medium Coverage Foundations Review

If you’ve been following along with Everyday Starlet then you know I’ve been testing my makeup collection, trying on each product, and giving a review.  I went through all of my foundations and decided that I had way too many and I really needed to split up my collection into coverage.  I already shared my lightweight foundations, and now I’m reviewing my medium coverage foundations.

Pinning is Glamorous!

The Best & Worst Medium Coverage Foundations Review

To be honest, when I split up my foundations by coverage, I expected the medium coverage category to be the largest.  However, I didn’t have as many as I thought I did.

I kept tried to keep things consistent by using the same primer (my favorite Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure , although I’m working on testing primers next), and the same face powder (my longtime favorite the Clinique Blended Face Powder ).

Here are the ones I loved and the ones I’m not crazy about.  My results may surprise you, I know they surprised me…

The Best & Worst Lightweight Foundations Review

Continuing my makeup collection reviews (brighteners here, concealers here, neutralizers here) I decided to move on to foundations.  I had no idea I had so many of them!

The Best & Worst Lightweight Foundations Review

I went through my large foundation collection, wore a different one every day and vlogged my experience with each throughout the day.  When I got through them all I realized that it would take an epic feature length movie to fit in all of my reviews.  So I decided to make it into a mini series, starting with my sheer coverage foundations.

So this review is of all of my sheer coverage foundations, tinted moisturizers, and BB creams. When determining the coverage, I wanted to go with the brands’ definition.  However, some of these are build-able.  I just didn’t build with them because I wanted to test how that were with one application.   Here are the results…

The Best Products for Covering Dark Under Eye Circles | Neutralizers & Correctors Concealer Review

In my younger Starlet days I never worried about dark circles.  I danced through life carefree about the area beneath my baby blues.  But with age comes wisdom, and apparently dark circles.  So neutralizers and correctors have become a very important part of my makeup routine.  I’m testing my collection and finding the best products for covering dark under eye circles…

I’m wearing a different makeup product everyday, documenting how I like it (or don’t) throughout the day, and then keeping my favorites.  I already compared two of my favorite neutralizers, but I really wanted to test all the neutralizers and correctors in my collections to find my favorites.

When it comes to covering my dark circles, I love a peach or orange concealer that gives me great coverage but doesn’t get cakey.  So if you’d like to see the best and worst of my neutralizers and correctors, then here’s the video…

Best & Worst Concealers Review

I will admit I have amassed quite a large makeup collection since starting Everyday Starlet.  So when it comes time for special occasions, like my wedding, or even just everyday makeup, I sometimes forget which products are favorites and which ones I wish I’d just get rid of already.

So I decided to try something new and wear a different makeup product everyday, document how I like it (or don’t) throughout the day, and then keep my favorites.

I’m starting with concealers. So for 7 days I wore a different concealer under my eyes.  I judged how long they lasted, how good their coverage is, and how they settled into my fine lines and wrinkles (I’d rather pretend they’re not there, but alas, they are). Here’s what I learned…

Contour Palette Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit vs Kat Von D Shade & Light

Sometimes the answer is right in front of your face… well, more like ON your face.  I’ve watched a lot of contour palette reviews on YouTube, usually of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit or the Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette.  I found myself constantly asking how one compares to the other.  They the other day it occurred to me… I have both palettes, why don’t I do a side by side comparison!
