Tyra Beauty Review

Amateur Approved

makeup sticks
I received this product free in exchange for my honest feedback.

My First Impression: The face contour looked a little dark. After applying it was definitely better than I thought, given the dark color. The highlighter, looked cakey up close (like a mask) under my eye, but this could be MY ERROR because I skipped moisturizer that day.  Highlighter was just noticeable enough to look natural. *I used the dab on approach when appying instead of a long stroke*
As you can see in the picture below, the light reflects (the highlighter) and my face looks thinner and the edges of my face look sun-kissed. (face contour) This brings peoples natural eye reaction toward your eyes.

Moisturizer and primer in hand I was ready to take a go again I googled different ways to contour and highlight the night before. (By no means am I an expert). But I am learning and love playing in makeup.
 I saw on Pinterest, a face line out with contouring and highlighting. This was not like the others I have seen or been reading. This approach took the contour around the side of the cheeks then stopped, not to the jawline.  Feeling inspired, I thought I would try it this different approach.

This time I glide it across the top of my forehead instead of dabbing it, since it blended good before I wasn’t worried. However, I got some build up that would not blend. I did still have that mask or cakey look even after apply moisturizer prior to the makeup application. I decided to try adding some powder to my finished face. That did lessen the effect of most of that appearance. When I asked others about if it appeared cakey to them, they stated no. Luckily that means it isn't noticeable.

My final thoughts: Overall, the concept and the convenience of the stick is extremely appealing. I am sure it is also less intimidating for those ladies whom what to incorporating highlightening and contouring into their makeup routine. It has a creamy texture once it’s on your skin. Extremely a light wear, to the point I forgot I had it on and slept in it. OOPs (yes I know this is bad)
This definitely brought back memories of my teens. When I first started wearing makeup, I started with a foundation stick. Oh boy, that sounds funny. The makeup world has definitely come a long way since then.

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8.

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of wor…

Where to get freebies? Freebie Sites and their Brief breakdowns

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by.
