Hi guys! Yes, this is the long overdue beauty-related post. I know I've been in a weird low lately, and I just want to say THANK YOU to those of you who've been so supportive and understanding. I LOVE YOU ALL!
Now, on to the review:
Product name: Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Airbrush Spray Makeup (what a mouthful?)
Price: $13.99 at CVS, occasionally go on BOGO, which was when I got mine.
Texture: Very light whipped mousse consistensy
Coverage: Medium, but could be layered for full coverage
--Very light on the skin, doesn't feel like you are wearing a mask, skin feels like it can breath underneath
--Great concept of airbrushing
--Great coverage for a foundation that feels so light
--very $$$$ for a drugstore foundation. I believe this is the most expensive one yet!
--Can be streaky if applied with a brush like 187 or 190. I recommend using your fingers to tap it on to your skin. I will upload the YT review/tutorial for this soon.
--Since it's in an aerosol can, you don't know how much product you have left.
--Color selection is VERY limited. I believe that are only 3 (or is it 5?). They are more on the yellow side, so if you have cool skin tone, you are most likely not going to find a match.
Over all: 4.5 out of 5
I've heard rave after rave on MUA about how great this foundation is. So when Sally Hansen went on BOGO sale at my local CVS, I ran over there in a heartbeat! At first I got the color in Medium b/c I don't think I'm light. After I got in the car, I tested it on my jawline....HOLY ORANGE-NESS!!!! I cannot believe they actually think people are that color! It was so orange I went back to CVS immediately. After careful consideration, I got Light instead of Medium. Voila! Perfect match! However, it is very yellow, which is great for me since I'm on the yellower side. It's very light too, around MAC NC20-25 range.
You have to shake the can up before using it to mix the products. When it sprays out it's very thin moussey texture. It's like a thin foam. I don't recommend spray it directly on to your face. I suggest spraying in on the back of your hand and apply it onto your skin. I like to tap it on top of my skin instead of rubbing it in. The finish is very light and dewy. It's not matte and mask-like. The coverage is great. My skin is pretty scarred, even though it's a lot better than before, there're still some scars left. The foundation covered it pretty well yet still provided that natural look to it. The lasting power is pretty well too. What I do is this foundation, concealer, then powder, and this look lasts from 9 in the morning to 10 at night. It doesn't get cakey and heavy throughout the day.
This is how I apply: Nail color: China Glaze Frostbite
See how dewy it is?
This is only w/ the foundation, no concealer/powder.
Next, on to the hauls!!
First up, UD F&F haul!
--Velvet Rope e/l set $29

The shampoo is purple! It's gorgeous! It's supposed to be for blond hair to take off the brassiness. I bought it just for the color, LOL! It made my hair really soft, even though it smells like grandma.
Last but not least...ELF haul!
Spot Floofy's foot!
--20 pairs of dramatic lashes
--20 pairs of natural lashes
--2 Super glossy l/g in Goddess

--2 Super glossy l/g in Juiced Berry
--8 lash curlers
--10 Studio Complexion Brush
--10 Studio Flat Top Powder brush

This is the best part! The whole ELF haul costed me $25!!!!!!! At first, I used a 70% off coupon a YTer sent me. Also, there was a free shipping code online. So the haul was originally $74, after the coupon and Fs, it was $25 shipped. However, ELF sent it to the wrong place. They use this idiotic mailing system called Fedex Smartpost. So, Fedex sends the package to your local USPS, then the USPS delivers it....WTF?!! So, my first package got lost for like 2 weeks. I emailed ELF customer service after 1 week because somehow my Fedex tracking showed that my package was in North Carolina.... They responded very quickly and resend me the package after I double-checked that they had my correct address.
After I got my 2nd package, amazingly the 1st package made its way to my mail box too! I called the ELF CS again regarding if I should send one of them back, but they told me to keep them both. They even apologized for how long it took!! It completely changed how I viewed EFL CS. Kudos to them!!
Also, last but now least, I've been wearing China Glaze nail polish in Chiaroscuro for the past couple of days. I LOVE IT! It's a natural shell color w/ tiny green shimmers. It's very appropriate for school/work.
Without flash...it's hard to capture the green reflects. BTW, I SUCK at applying nail polish, so please exuse the fact that my nails look like crap, LOL!
Whew! Glad that was over. I think this is enough to tide me over for another week. :D
Thanks for viewing!
