RARE BEAUTY COLLECTION REVIEW/1st IMPRESSIONS
RARE BEAUTY IS HERE AND I AM IMPRESSED! glowy and feel good makeup with easy application.. keep reading for my thoughts! 𝐑𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐲 has officially launched and I picked up pretty much everything from the launch (except brow pencil) to test out another celebrity brand. 𝐬𝐨, 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐝𝐢𝐝 𝐢 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤? Overall.. it’s a big hit in my opinion! It’s definitely not going to be for everyone, but I think it hits a lot of marks for a wide range of people. 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦: 48 shades of concealer and foundation with a variety of undertones! I’m most impressed by the variety of undertones, even fenty doesn’t compare with undertones. The entire line runs a little on the warmer side, so keep that in mind. You can find forgotten undertones like olive, peach and blue. 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐃𝐔𝐂𝐓𝐒! Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation 𝐌𝐲 𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐝𝐞: 𝟑𝟔𝟎𝐰 - 𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞 + skin elixir type foundation.

First (and Second) Impressions - Rare Beauty 1/2
So after extensive research via YouTube on Selena Gomez’s new makeup line Rare Beauty, I knew I wanted to try it ALL (or almost all). The first time I tried everything, I was NOT impressed, but after making sure my face was properly washed and moisturized, I did tried everting a second time and felt a little better about it. However, not everything is love, so I will give my honest review of it all and tell you what I’m keeping/returning. Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer If you’re looking for an illuminating/brightening primer, this one is great! I’ve tried Too Faced’s Dew You Primer, and I prefer this one. I love the texture, and it’s not as shiny as Dew You while still giving some brightness. However, it did nothing for filling pores, which I realized is really what I need in a primer, so I’ll (probably) be returning. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation While I do LOVE the serum formula, it settled into my pores REALLY bad the first time I put it on! (See comparison left ) I made sure to use a mask and Niacinamide serum before applying it a second time, and it did do better (see comparison right) I felt the color was OK for my complexion (180W), as this was the shade suggested by the Sephora associate, but I almost wish it were darker and/or matched me better. I do like the doe foot applicator a lot though! Will be returning. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer I wasn’t particularly impressed with the concealer. While the texture is nice, it did nothing for my blemishes and settled into my under eye fine lines despite using setting powder. Will definitely be returning in favor of something better suited to my needs. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Foundation Brush Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Concealer Brush These brushes are keepers! I love the softness and density of them, and the shape is so unique. It’s really easy to get into the creases of your nose and eyes with the point. And they do a great job of blending. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush The blush takes some getting used to, but it is actually so nice once you get it. A leeeeeeetle goes a loooooong way! The foundation brush is great for blending it out. I wasn’t sure about the color (Love), so I may exchange for another? Still debating. But I will definitely continue using! Rare Beauty - Positive Light Liquid Luminizer I asked the Sephora associate for a recommendation on the color for me, and I love the one she chose - Enchant, which is a soft pink. I wasn’t sure how it would look, but it actually ended up being one of my favorite products! I love how SUBTLE it is! Never been a big highlight person before, but this changed my mind!

Recent Beauty Pickups!
Over the past month here are my recent pickups! MARIO BADESCU - The Mini Mist Collection These are a repeat buy. They are the 2 ounces bottles so they're great for your purse, car or anywhere. I like these to spray throughout the day or as a skincare spray. Too Faced - Natural Face Palette I LOVE this palette. it's definitely my favorite face palette. This is the second time I've purchased this. the first one I had, I hit pan on three shades and it was getting too old so I threw it out. However, today Ulta had this palette 50% off for their 21 days of beauty sale. I realized how much I missed it. I'm so excited to finally have it back in my collection! Kosas - The Wet Set Clean Lip Oil Trio I love these lip oils and already own two full-sizes of these. I think this is a great set to try out the shades. I'm especially excited to try the red shade. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush I bought this in the shade Grateful which is a BRIGHT RED. it's exactly what I was looking for. for some reason, based on the pictures online I thought a different shade was the red one. these are extremely pigmented so make sure to go lighthanded. I would recommend going in Sephora if you're able to look at the shades before buying. so far I love! Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer I have oily skin, so I wasn't sure about purchasing the foundation so I thought I would try the concealer first. omg. it lasted on my skin ALL day! It looks beautiful on the skin and natural skin finish. i forgot I was wearing it. I recommend trying this concealer out. I purchased the shade 210N. Just as a reference here are other concealer shades I use: Fenty Beauty: 260 kosas: 4 Too Faced Born this way: Natural Beige I chose to go a shade bit lighter BTW. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm I agree with everyone on this product. horrible packaging, GREAT product. It feels amazing on the lips!
SUMMER FRIDAYS-Lip Butter Balm
The concealer it is good I like it but it doesn’t cover the dark circles , and plus is so small, but it is so soft and doesn’t feel heavy the color I got is 230N The brush foundation I love it so soft and the brush of hair they don’t fall like other ones do I really recommend y’all the brush so amazing
