L'oreal Infallible Fresh Wear 24 HR Foundation & Full Wear Concealer Review

I am wearing the L'oreal Infallible Fresh Wear foundation in the shade Hazelnut and the Full Wear concealer in the shade Almond. Follow my Instagram @ansbclassicbeauty for the rest of the details for this look.

2019 is all about complexion products. There are so many new foundations and concealers on the market and I am loving it! This past couple of weeks I have been testing out L'oreal's new Infallible foundation and concealer. I love the Infallible Pro-Matte foundation, so I was really excited about the new additions to the line. The foundation comes in 30 different shades and the concealer has 25 different shades. I purchased both the new foundation (retails under $15) and concealer (retails under $13) at WalMart. Let's get into the review...

Beauty Products I Wish I Could Buy #NoBuyMakeupChallenge

I am a little over a month into my makeup challenge, which means, I have not bought any makeup! I ALMOST caved when I was Christmas shopping at Ulta the other day. I even walked around with an eyeshadow palette in my bag that I really wanted but I put it away. I have no idea when my challenge will be over. This week I was not able to pick a new product from the box because of life and the holidays. Next week's post will be all about my favorite products of the year. The challenge posts will resume the week after next. I low key want to switch up how I am getting through the makeup box but on the other hand, I don't. We'll see what I decide, but until then, let's talk about all the makeup I wish I had LOL.

Natasha Denona Gold Eyeshadow Palette First Impressions

Before we jump into this post, I want to apologize for this being posted a couple days late! This week really kicked my butt, but in a good way. I got so much accomplished! With that being said, I only used this week's product twice so this is more of a first impressions post than a review.

Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation Review

I mentioned this foundation in my Ulta Haul at the beginning of November. This foundation has been out for a couple of years but I was never able to purchase it because dark shades were not available. Both Ulta and Wet N Wild now have dark shades available online only. Like I mentioned before, I am not a fan of the dark shades only being available online. I had to purchase two different shades because I was not sure which one would match me. This foundation retails between $5-7 at drugstores, Ulta, and Wet N Wild's website.

Sigma X BeautyyBird The Dream Palette Review

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving! Can you believe we are already 2 weeks into my challenge!? This week was a little hectic for me work wise so I apologize ahead of time for the short post. Today we are going to talk about one of my favorite YouTuber's new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with Sigma Beauty!

I stumbled across Yasmin aka BeautyyBird on YouTube a few years ago and instantly fell in love with her content, personality, and her family. I was so excited when she announced this eyeshadow palette! BeautyyBird has used Sigma Beauty products on and off camera religiously for years. In her videos, she always uses Sigma's brushes, their wicked gel eyeliner, and several other products like their eyeshadows. I think it so awesome she was able to create a palette with a brand she has loved for years! The Dream Palette comes with 18 eyeshadows (new formula), 2 highlighters, and a double-sided eyeshadow brush. It retails for $49 on (currently sold out).

First off, can we talk about the color theme of this palette! I LOVE IT! This palette is so versatile, you can literally do hundreds of different looks with this. I also love that the palette comes with a double-sided brush because it makes it so easy to travel with. One side of the brush is Sigma's E38 Diffused Crease™ blending brush and the other side is their E58 Cream Color flat brush. Sigma's brushes are extremely good quality and this brush included is no different. The marble detailing is also super pretty!

  I played with this eyeshadow palette for the past week and I am in love! The formula of the matte eyeshadows is a dream! GET IT? 🤣 They are super pigmented and layer/blend extremely well together with no fallout. My favorite matte shade is 'Ambidextrous' because it is the perfect pink! The shimmer shades did not disappoint either. I actually found they worked better without using a wet brush because they are pretty creamy and blinding as is. My favorite shimmer shade is 'Conchita'. The only thing I am not too crazy about is the two highlighters. The shades are beautiful but the formula is a bit lackluster. I prefer a blinding highlight and this formula is definitely more of a glow from within unless you layer it a few times. I think I will only use them as a brow bone or inner corner highlight.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I really enjoy this palette. The new eyeshadow formula she created is so darn good. All of the shadows blend beautifully! I will definitely be taking this palette with me on my next trip because it will save me so much room in my suitcase. I can easily do a smokey eye, color dramatic eye, or a natural eye with just this palette alone. You can really tell Yasmin poured her heart into this product! Congratulations BeautyyBird!

Huda Beauty New Nude Eyeshadow Palette Review

Huda Beauty released a new eighteen pan eyeshadow palette November 1st. The brand has had an excellent year of new makeup releases ranging from concealers, baking powders, and new lip formulas. I immediately fell in love with the mauvy vibes from this palette and had to get my hands on it. The palette retails for $65 at Sephora and ShopHudaBeauty. Huda Beauty also released three new double-sided brushes/applicators that were specifically created for this palette. The brushes are sold separately and retail between $15-$18. I did not purchase any of the brushes but I will talk about one of them shortly.
