    20 years ago Hard Candy was in Sephora. I think at least 20 years ago. I remember it as high end makeup. Not sure why they changed to drugstore.

    Had to try to Glamofauge. When you said they re did the formula, I give props to cosmetic lines that listen and make changes. I do love it! I also feel like I'm using less product . It looks like the most professional foundation that I ever used. Stick it to Pores, is excellent! I tried Nyx Pore Filler (so disappointed) I had went back to ELF's because it worked better and I was about to try Benefit Porefessional, until I seen this video..I had to hunt down Hard Candy because only one place carries it , same drug store, 8 miles apart. I tend to not like eyeliner pens to create a winged look for the reason of drying up fast. I love the wet n wild Mega liquid liner. Does not flake, dries matte, dries fast, no smudging. I have black, purple and the glitters silver & gold. I like them better than the Nyx Vivid Brights Liner. Their colors are way off, what is red, looks like hot pink and not near as saturated as the Wet N Wild. If you try to saturate your wing to look anything like the packaging, it becomes a big streaky, clumpy mess! Thank you for doing this video! I feel you come off as real and sincere, easy to relate to, compared to many channels. I follow only two!

I have natural red hair and light skin too. I'm so happy that I found you in 2018. Happy New Year to you and your family.

    Oh Wow, I had no idea that you color your hair. It's beautiful, I'm curious to see the difference between t hi is and your natural color. I'm just nosey like Btw, I love your hair, especially when u wear it curly. Which is weird because I'm a curly girl and I so wish I had straight hair, but on other people I love it. Go figure. 😊

    I gotta stop watching your videos, every time I watch one, I want, I want 😅 loving Maybellines addiction lip liner. I had bought MAC velvet teddy ages ago and to brownish, I use this liner with that and Myth, it’s stunning. Now I’ve added the liner to a nude peach smash box one which was to light and it just looks exquisite. You give great advice for those with pale/medium skin and or blue eyes x

    My faves are: Wet'n'Wild lip in Sunset Peach. Only $1 but it is perfect for all those peachy colors that have been so big. And my Maybelline Soda Pop palette. Neutrals, transitions and plenty of bright pops of color. It is my go-to palette when nothing else in my 400+ palette collection is inspiring me. It may be only 12 colors but they truly seem able to do countless looks.

    Blushing Beige was my favorite for years!! My recent favorites from Maybelline, are Truffle Tease (buff line) and Nude Embrace (matte line). They're a tinge darker than Blushing Beige, but I think you'd fall in love with them.

    Thank you Zabrena. I really hope you know how much I appreciate you. You are my favorite person two watch. I still don’t know how you do all the work you do with two small children. I can’t even keep my house clean and I have a 4 and 2 year old. I could never take on the task of a TVclip channel on top of that and also run a business. Love Inky Minky btw!! Hope 2019 brings you so much love and joy.

  • Ariel The Little Mermaid

    This was a Christmas edition lip oil set from the brand Mally at Kohls. Best lip product for that glossy, not sticky, moisturizing look and feeling. They leave a slight stain which is fantastic. Physicians formula pearl highlighter. Pacifica neutral eyeshadow palette.

    The Milani hypnotic powder is beautiful on the skin. I have not seen it in store lately, but it is supposed to be permanent. It is the closest thing in the drugstore that is like the hourglass ambient powders.

    Both you and Emily mentioned the Eco tools sponge. I have to get my hands on it!! And I completely agree the orange real techniques does not hold up. It always seems to tear after only a few months.

    Maybelline has a lipstick similar to the Blushing Beige color. It’s their matte formula (in stick form) and it’s called Beige Babe. It’s my go to nude lipstick!

      I have a hard time looking a for nude lipstick that won't look like my face has been washed out... but I think that Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Blush is great. It is however a pearl finish.
