DUPE: COVERFX GLOW DROPS

Today I bring you a dupe for my beloved glow-getter ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I have used the CoverFx Custom Enhancer drops foreves & thought they were one of a kind and invested the $42 to add them to my collection. I tell you WHAT girl, the drugstore has ramped up their game and DELIVERED on this dupe. No longer can I justify spending $42 for a liquid highlighter.

Enter Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter!! For just $9 I grabbed two shades from Ulta – hell it would be cheaper to grab ALL the colors in the range than buy another bottle from CoverFx.

I looooove adding this product to my moisturizer for a fresh flawless glow or adding a few drops to my primer right before my foundation to keep my skin lookin’ reaaaaal dewy and bright!

Have you tried this dupe?? I am obsessed & I hope you will be too.

FENTY BEAUTY : REVIEW

You babes have beeeeegged for a @fentybeauty review and while the jury is still out on the foundation, I am straight SHOOK by the rest of the line! Run over to my Instagram t#motd story to see those orange beauts in action ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Here are my thoughts in short: this line is STUNNING! I am thrilled with the incredible range of shade options especially for you deeper skinned babes. I think that the packaging and branding are fabulous and the color options for blush and highlighter are SUPER unique. With all that said, I think that the line is more directed for a deeper skinned babe in general and besides the awesome foundation shade selection, I don’t this this collection offers much for the fair toned or the dry skinned either.

HEAR ME OUT. I had suuuuuuuper high hopes for this line, but before I forked out an arm and a leg I did a ton of research online. I watched every review I could find (which is why this review has taken so long!) and tried to find the most honest summary out there. Knowing that I want to tell you the things that I cannot live without.

MUST HAVE : FENTY BEAUTY Gloss Bomb ($18) – This stuff!! OMG, I am hooked. It gives the must stunning universal glossy shade but also contains lactic acid & Shea butter too keep those lips lookin’ fresh & plump. The wand is extra big, so two swipes and you’re covered!

FENTY BEAUTY Killawatt Highlighter in “Trophy Wife” ($34) Although I think this color is better suited for deeper skin tones, I just couldn’t go without it. If you are a collector of makeup or want something super unique in your kit, then THIS.IS.IT. If you’ve got deeper skin, then you are the luckiest of all, this looks just stunning on the cheekbones! I looooooove how it looks on the skin & while it is super super super shimmery, setting your face with a mist will ensure that it doesn’t end up all over the face.

FENTY BEAUTY Killawat Highlighter in “Lightening Dust/Fire Crystal” ($34) This babe is better suited for you fair babes and the reason I cannot live without this product is that it has TWO in one!! One shade is bling bling and the other shade is more an everyday subtle glow shade. Perfect for travel or the girl who can’t make up her mind everyday: options are queen!!

FENTY BEAUTY Match Stix Matte Skinstick in “Amber” ($25) It is difficult to find this perfect ashy tone in any range and that was why I was most impressed with this line – something for everyone!! I love this stick because it applies as a cream, but blends beautifully even with just your fingertips. This shade will appear on the skin more like a shadow, so you’ll get dimension to the face without looking bronzed!

FENTY BEAUTY Match Stix Shimmer Skinstix in “Chili Mango” ($25) If you are into cream blushers than you will LOVE the color range and pigment of these! I applied with a brush and tapped onto the cheeks for a spring flush that I cannot get enough of. Now I just need every.single.color. Next on my wishlist is “Unicorn”!!

FENTY BEAUTY Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in “Saw-C” ($18) I was super, super hesitant about this color. I have never seen anything like it in the makeup world and I just knew that I could not live without this color in my life. As a matte lipstick is doesn’t wear as well as I had hoped, BUT layered over a lip balm it looks stunning on the lips and is fades beautifully and gradually. By the end of the day (even after eating) there was still a subtle flush on my lips that made a unique statement and still got compliments!!

What am I missing from the line?? I feel like I must try it all!

#NationalCreamFilledDoughnutDay

Forย #NationalCreamFilledDoughnutDay I am streeeeeeetching the term and showing you the cream-of-the-crop from my drugstore makeup collection! I mean, I just feel like less money spent on makeup means MORE money for cream filled doughnuts. Seems like an obvious post, right??

I think it just makes sense to post about each product in order that you would apply – everything is linked below, but hit me up if you have any questions!

FOUNDATION : Because I have dry skin my preference of foundation from the drugstore is the Loreal Infalliable Pro Glow, but if you have oily skin or prefer and matter finish then the Loreal Infallible Pro Matte will be your best friend. This is my HOLY GRAIL from the drugstore! COLOR TIP – I rotate between #203 and #204

FOUNDATION BRUSH : I have used the e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush for years and it has really become my one and only in the foundation routine.

BEAUTY SPONGE : The ONLY thing that even slightly compares to the OG Beauty Blender in my humble opinion ๐Ÿ˜˜ย is the Loreal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.

UNDER EYE CONCEALER : This is the most full coverage and dewy concealer at the drugstore and I.AM.OBSESSED. with it.

CONCEALER BRUSH : I prefer using a brush to blend in my concealer because I keep the coverage and it takes a liiiiiiittle bit of the glow glow out of the concealer and looks so dang natural on the skin.

BRONZER/CONTOUR : Not only does this bronzer flatter ALL skin tones, but it smells like a freakin summer vacation. I cannot get enough.

CONTOUR STICK : I am just testing this out, but it looks so stunning and warm on the skin and blends out soooooo beautifully!

PINK BLUSH : This cool-toned pink blush is what blush dreams are made of. It is the perfect subtle yet bright pink and blends liiiiiiike butta!

CORAL BLUSH : If you have followed me long, you KNOW this is my favorite of all favorite blushes! Oh and it is just $2.99!!!!

PEACH BLUSH : This blush looks sooo natural on the skin and has a bit of shimmer to keep the skin look luminous and fresh.

BLUSH BRUSH : The biggest mistake that women make in their makeup routine is in their blush. By using a smaller brush you can make sure that your application is flawless ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

HIGHLIGHTERย BLING : I went over this highlighter in my dupe series, but I can’t put it down and for $4.99, I might just end up buying 4 so that I never run out!

SUBTLE HIGHLIGHTER : I rediscovered this highlight and it just makes me so so so happy and gives my face a “lit from within” look ๐Ÿ˜

EYE POLISH : I swear by these eye shadows, because they work like a primer, so they stay.all.day and give the eye a metallic POP without looking cray cray. They are so simple to use, just pop them on in patting motions with your finger.

LIP SCRUB : This is the ONLY scrub from the drugstore that does the job and tastes/smells high end!

NUDE LIPGLOSS : This glossy gloss is my favorite. No joke I have a tube in my car, a tube in my purse, a tube in my bathroom and a tube for the baby ๐Ÿ˜˜ย jk jk. But only kidding about the baby, hahah!

COLORED LIPGLOSS : The NYX Butter Glosses are flawless for a natural makeup day, you don’t need a mirror to apply them and there are so many color options that you can find your perfect shade EASY!

MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK : I HATED this formula initially, but it has grown on me. Maaaaainly because it just wears so flipping long! As soon as this dries down (which sometimes takes a couple hours ๐Ÿ™„) this shiz STAYS.

Here is the look that I created with these drugstrore fab faves!
