Becca Backlight Priming Filter Face Primer Review and Swatches/ Comparisons

No comments:

Backlight Primer- Pearl, Moonstone, Opal , Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfectors

I have been using the Becca Backlight priming filter for over a week now.

Yes it has a fancy name but it's just a face primer.

Here is what Sephora says:

Backlight Priming Filter creates a canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. Infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, each one adds a different drop of diffused light. Blended together, they impart a one-of-a-kind, lightweight, whipped fluid that creates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter, while the vitamin E-enriched formula minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Backlighting acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look. Infused with Becca’s proprietary blend of crushed pearls, this primer achieves a lit-from-within, healthy-looking effect. 

This is very different from Becca's Shimmering skin perfectors in case you're wondering.

This is a primer and it does have a little shimmer but once you put on foundation you can't really see the shimmer particles. 

Where as the skin perfectors have a lot more shimmer and highlight properties.

Retail is $38.00 and you find this at Sephora and Ulta.

I think it's nice but not a must have.

Have you came across this in store yet?

On The Ave

Coffee Buzz

Vintage Vibe



Wet 'n Wild has a new lip and nail polish collection called "Here's to the Wild Ones!" for Fall 2015.

I bought all six colors , I mean they are only $1.99 after all :) plus these are limited edition.

They are all very pigmented. 

Coffee Buzz and Nightcap are the two I could've safely passed on , but of coarse the makeup collector in me needed them all.

The display only has 3 of each color so if you are in search of them you should check your local drugstore soon.

I got mine at Walgreen's.

What colors are your favorites??

Lancome AUDA[CITY] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

No comments:
I was browsing the makeup department at Macy's this past Friday and saw that Lancome was having a pretty good Gift with Purchase.

 I usually skip on the gifts but I really liked this one and I saw they had the NEW AUDA[CITY] in Paris Palette in stock.

I am not big on Lancome in general but since Lisa Eldridge is their official global creative director I thought I would give this a chance.

Usually everything she touches turns to gold after all :)

 I like the design of the palette and the art work is super sophisticated looking.

I think the palette overall is nice, it is a little hit and miss but it definitely is more hit for me, so I am keeping it.

The formula seems a little dry but it blends very easy which I like and the darker colors are not intensely pigmented but again that is fine by me, they can easily be layered for more pigmentation.

I feel the shimmer shades have a softer formulation and have some fall out but very minimal.

I am happy with this purchase especially since the Gift with Purchase makes it seem like a much better deal.

Will you be picking this palette up??



I thought it would be easier to show you these in sections as they are laid out the palette.
