I love makeup. Seriously, I have a problem..haha. I am always looking for a great beauty product, and nowadays it seems that less focus is put on quality and more on quantity. With these cosmetics, that isn’t the case. They are great quality, with great wearability.
When I first got them, I did my face in them. I had some issues, and at first thought I was allergic to them, or that they somehow messed with my regular allergies, so I stopped wearing them. It was determined that this was NOT the case at all! Thank goodness, because I love Christie Brinkley makeup!
Forever Flawless Foundation
The foundation is a light coverage, which is what I like. It isn’t heavy on my face like a lot of foundations are. It’s the heaviness that makes me not want to wear foundation, so this was a nice surprise. It goes on smoothly, and wears all day. It has a floral scent to it, and is pleasant. The color match was pretty spot on, since I looked at it online, and not in person. I like the squeeze tube that it comes in, as I find it easier to get the foundation out than if it were in a glass bottle. The fact that there is SPF 40 in it is an added bonus for me! I burn easily, so I like that I can put my makeup on, and not have to put an extra layer of sunscreen!

In A Blink Instant Volumizing Mascara
I am pretty picky when it comes to my mascara. I’m the type of girl who finds one she loves, and only uses that one for months. Having said that, I decided to give this mascara a try. I am glad that I did, because I really like it! It really gives my lashes length and volume, and doesn’t cake or flake. This is important to me, because I cannot stand a cakey, flaky mascara. I was able to apply a couple of coats of this without clumping, so it is buildable. When I took my makeup off at the end of the day, it came off easily with my cloth. It didn’t irritate my eyes throughout the day, either. This is definitely a good mascara that does what it claims!
