[Review] Eyes, Eyes and more!

I've been lagging on a new review post, I know I know, I'm fired. Kidding! But I do apologize for taking way too long to do another post. I have had this annoying cough for over a week and a half, and then my entire family got sick, it's just been a  pain in the butt if you ask me. Anyway! Onto some reviews. Last time I left off at my awesome Mehron Blush palette, so moving forward. Check it out below, but I warn you, this will be another photo heavy post, with short reviews.


Cinema Secrets Eye Primer:
Let's start off with an eye lid primer. I LOVE Cinema Secrets Eye Primer. It's really amazing and I wouldn't say that if it isn't. I've used primers before where I've had to use a "wet" eye shadow application, but with this eye primer, no more wet applications for me! That's how awesome it is, it doesn't require a wet application to pick up the pigments from my eye shadows! I love it, I love it, I love it! Texture wise, I was iffy about it, because it is really runny, but you don't need a ton of product. Just a tiny dab [see picture] and you can cover BOTH EYES with just that much. It spreads easily and goes on super sheer. Seriously a must have in your makeup bag.

Camera Ready Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner:
I've always used a pencil eyeliner or liquid eyeliner, and I still do on occasion. Then I started using Gel Eyeliners and seriously, I hardly go back to using pencil or liquid. The Camera Ready Cosmetics Gel Eye Liner is superb. It glides on easy, color is on point and it lasts all day long. I used this Gel eyeliner to do makeup for my friends wedding and it did not budge all night. Texture is perfect and it doesn't flake at all. Definitely worth a try if you're into Gel eyeliners or if you're just beginning.

Kryolan Cake Eyeliner:
Besides being in infatuated with Gel Eyeliners, cake eyeliners are on a whole different level. It's a mix between powder and liquid because it comes in the form of a powder but glides on super easy like a liquid eyeliner. My most favorite cake eyeliner is made by Kryolan. This stuff is amazing! You might get fooled if you've never used a Cake eyeliner before because you will need a sealer. I mean you can use water, but this works so much better with a good sealer [I use Cinema Secrets Eyeliner Sealer]. If you love liquid eyeliner, then you'll definitely love the Kryolan Cake Eyeliner. All you need is your eyeliner brush and a sealer and it goes on smoothly. It doesn't flake or fade, and lasts all day. This is definitely something to have in your makeup kit.

 Camera Ready Indelible Lash Waterproof Mascara:
I'm a mascara whore. Why - because I love that it just opens up the eyes and makes your eyes pop that much more. Not all mascaras are made equal, some are good and some are horrible. That is why I want to tell you how much I really like the Camera Ready Indelible Lash. It's a waterproof mascara that does what it says, water resistant. It doesn't smudge or flake and lasts all day long. It's not very thick so you will need a few swipes, but I don't have an issue with that. I for one do not need a few swipes, I'm actually good with 1 or 2, depending on the look I'm going for. I bought this for more than one reason, 1. I needed a waterproof mascara and 2. I really like the design of the tube. It's totally different, almost like a squeezable type but you can't really squeeze it. Yes, I am different, I bought a beauty product because of the design - lol. This mascara gets two thumbs up from me.

Model in a Bottle:
No, it's not a genie that comes out and grants you any beauty wish you want. Although that would be awesome. It's actually a matte finishing spray. I love this Model in a Bottle Matte Finishing Spray. It has a nice and clean scent that's not too overwhelming. It dries within seconds of use, isn't sticky and sets your makeup perfectly. It also does not clog your pores and doesn't interfere with your SPF. You really can't go wrong with a finishing spray. You get about 300 sprays with this cute little bottle and it's definitely worth the buy. Also, if you have sensitive skin, don't fret, they do have this in a sensitive skin formula. Yay!

Beauty Blender Cleanser:
Not an ordinary brush cleaner, but a Beauty Blender Cleanser. It's a gel, almost like dish soap, but I want to say it's a tiny bit thicker. I love this cleanser. It seriously makes the beauty blending sponges spotless and look brand new like you've never used it before. You don't need a ton of product to clean your beauty blender, just a small drop and you're good to go. I've cleaned about 6 beauty blenders with this, and barely made a dent in the product. It has a nice mild Lavender scent. I haven't tried this on my makeup brushes yet but I will keep you guys updated on that. Super awesome cleanser to have and I recommend this to anyone who has a beauty blender [or generic beauty blender].

Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner:
Lastly, I have the Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner. I LOVE this bright blue toned brush cleaner. It's great for on site use because it cleans and sanitizes the brushes and dries quickly. It's safe to use on synthetic or natural hairs and will leave your brushes with a nice vanilla scent. Sadly, I only purchased the smaller sized bottle because I wanted to test it out and now I know I MUST have it. This time I will splurge and get the big bottle. As if you couldn't tell, but you must have this brush cleaner too!

That's it for today beauties! I purchased everything at Camera Ready Cosmetics. You guys should definitely check out Camera Ready, they have EVERYTHING! It's like being a kid in a candy store, well for me it is. Thanks for reading loves, hope y'all enjoyed!
