Danessa Myrix Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder
In a recent video, I mentioned the Danessa Myrix Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder. This product comes in 14 shades and retails for $36. I have to say, you guys were right on the money with this recommendation. It truly lives up to the hype.
The Magic of Yummy Skin
The Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder is truly magical. It’s a lightweight powder that effortlessly blurs imperfections and gives your skin a natural, radiant finish. The formula is incredibly blendable and buildable, allowing you to achieve the level of coverage that suits your needs.
A Shade for Everyone
One of the things that impressed me about this product is the wide range of shades available. With 14 shades to choose from, you’re bound to find a perfect match for your skin tone. Whether you have fair skin, deep skin, or anything in between, Danessa Myrix has got you covered.
Smooth and Silky Texture
The texture of this powder is absolutely divine. It’s smooth and silky, gliding effortlessly onto the skin. It doesn’t feel cakey or heavy, which is a major plus. Instead, it feels light and comfortable, almost as if you’re not wearing anything at all.
Another standout feature of this product is its long-lasting power. Once you apply the Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder, it stays put all day long. No need for constant touch-ups or worrying about your makeup fading away. This powder truly delivers on its promise of long-lasting perfection.
The Yummy Skin Glow Serum Priming
The Yummy Skin Glow Serum Priming is a face serum that is perfect for those with mature dry skin or mature combo to dry or even very dry skin. This incredible product provides a beautiful glow and much-needed hydration. Makeup artists and women over 50 absolutely adore this priming serum for the amazing results it delivers.
A Frustration for Mature Skin with Oily Skin
However, it seems that the only products marketed to anyone over 50 are glowing products that provide hydration. While hydration is important for all skin types, it can be frustrating for those with oily skin. Many products targeted towards our age demographic are geared towards drier skin types. This makes sense as dryness is more common in mature skin, but it can leave those with oily skin feeling left out.
As someone with oily skin, I understand this frustration all too well. After my video on the Yummy Skin Glow Serum Priming, I received messages from people suggesting that I try a different product instead. It wasn’t the first time I had heard this recommendation, as many people had been suggesting it since it was first released. However, I was hesitant to try it because similar balm powders or cream to powder products had never worked well for me in the past.
Considering the Possibilities
While I currently have oily skin, I can’t help but wonder if my skin will become drier as I get older. It’s not uncommon for skin to change with age, and who knows, maybe I will experience a shift in my skin type. My own paternal grandmother had oily skin until she passed away at the age of 88. It’s interesting to consider the possibilities and how our skin can evolve over time.
Discovering a Multifunctional Favorite
For me, I just never liked the way they looked on my skin and, to be honest with you, I wasn’t sure if this was supposed to be a foundation or if it was supposed to be a primer. So I bought it months ago based on recommendations, and I used it just as a foundation because I thought, “Well, it’s tinted.” I think this is supposed to be a foundation, and even after reading the reviews, it sounded to me that that is what people used it for – just a quick and easy everyday foundation.
A Surprising Revelation
However, I since discovered on my own and from my viewers, telling me that this is actually better used, best used as a primer. It contains ingredients to help reduce the look of pores. It contains ingredients to combat sebum production and sweat, but it also contains hyaluronic acid. So your skin stays hydrated in this demo.
Oops, I Overdid It!
Unfortunately, I did take a little bit too much product, but this is about how much I would use if I were going to use it just as a foundation. Under my makeup, I typically try to use a little less, but I thought instead of using my fingers for the demo, I would use a little scooper and honestly I just got too much out. I should have just used my fingers like I normally do, and what I do is I pat it into my most oily areas, and then I go in with a light coverage foundation on top.
Unveiling a Game-Changer
Now, let me tell you why I wish I had tried this product sooner. As a primer, it truly enhances the longevity of my makeup. With its pore-reducing properties, it creates a smooth canvas that allows my foundation to glide on effortlessly. Not only that, but the added benefits of combating sebum production and sweat are truly remarkable. It keeps my face shine-free for hours and ensures that my makeup stays intact even on the hottest of days.
A Rescue for Hydration
One aspect that particularly impressed me about this product is the inclusion of hyaluronic acid. It’s no secret that hydrated skin is more plump, supple, and youthful-looking. By incorporating hyaluronic acid, this primer keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day, preventing any dry patches or uneven texture.
A Lesson Learned
Reflecting on my journey with this beauty favorite, I can’t help but feel a pang of regret for not discovering its true potential earlier. It goes to show that sometimes, preconceived notions can hinder our ability to explore new possibilities. Nevertheless, I am grateful for the newfound knowledge and the positive impact this product has had on my beauty routine.
Embrace the Unexpected
So, my fellow beauty enthusiasts, let this be a lesson in embracing the unexpected. Don’t let initial skepticism hold you back from trying out products that could potentially become your holy grail. You may just stumble upon a hidden gem, like I did, and wonder why you didn’t give it a chance sooner. Take the leap, experiment, and uncover your own beauty favorites that you really wish you had tried sooner!
Color Corrector for a Hydrated Under Eye
On top of a color corrector and as we all know, the more product you layer, the more chances there are of the end, looking a little heavy or dry. The last thing you want is a color corrector that is going to make any area of your face, but especially your under eyes, look parched and just dehydrated, and this actually has a little bit of a Sheen finish to it. So not only is it color correcting those really dark circles, its also giving a more youthful sort of hydrated glowing effect to the under eye.
As you saw in the demo, I used a brush to pick up the product. I didnt just go in like this. However, you can you can apply it any way you want if you have some discoloration on the face and thats what youre going to use this, for. You can absolutely go in. You know just like this and then Pat out with your finger or with a brush.
Neutral, Matte Eyeshadow Palette for Versatile Looks
Next up is this neutral, matte eyeshadow palette from vizart a couple of months ago, when Patrick, to launched his major Dimensions: 3, all matte, eyeshadow palette and the internet was going wild over it. Of course, I purchased it and reviewed it. Not only did I review that palette, but I compar compared it to the ever popular Master, mattes eyeshadow palette from Makeup by Mario, as well as the new Kylie Cosmetics, all matte palette, and the comments of that video were Fast and Furious.
The Viart All Matte Palette
When it comes to beauty favorites, one product that I really wish I had tried sooner is the Viart All Matte Palette. This Parisian brand has a huge cult following among makeup artists and beauty lovers, and I now understand why.
A Hidden Gem in My Stash
As a beauty junkie, I thought I knew all about Viart. I was aware that this palette had been a staple in many makeup artist’s bags for years. However, for some reason or another, I had set it aside and never really given it a fair chance. It was only recently that I decided to dig through my beauty room and rediscovered this hidden gem.
Buttery and Pigmented
Ever since I found this palette, I haven’t reached for any other all matte palettes. The formula of these mattes is truly remarkable. They are incredibly buttery, pigmented, and blend like a dream. The texture is so smooth that it feels like applying silk to my eyelids. It’s a delight to work with.
A Versatile Color Story
What sets this palette apart is its color story. It offers a range of cool and warm tones, making it suitable for a variety of looks. The Browns in the palette are particularly impressive. They are super neutral, with none of them pulling too red. There is also a gorgeous terracotta shade that adds a touch of boldness to the palette.
Perfect Shades for All Skin Tones
I also appreciate the thoughtfulness put into the shade selection. Viart has included the most perfect deep jet black for eyeliner, as well as an espresso brown that works beautifully in the outer corner or as an eyeliner. The palette also features highlight shades that are perfect for all skin tones, making it a versatile option for anyone.
The Viart All Matte Palette is a hidden gem that I’m so glad I finally discovered in my stash. The quality of the mattes, the versatile color story, and the thoughtfully chosen shades make it a must-have for any beauty lover. Don’t make the same mistake I did and overlook this amazing palette. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed!
Victoria Beckham Beauty
For years, many of you have recommended that I try Victoria Beckham Beauty, and I must admit, I had my reservations. The brand was not easily accessible, with only a few physical stores and an online presence. But recently, I stumbled upon a store called Violet Gray during my visit to Los Angeles, and I finally had the opportunity to experience the Victoria Beckham line in person.
Walking into the charming little makeup Boutique on Melrose, I was immediately drawn to the sleek and sophisticated packaging of the Victoria Beckham products. The attention to detail was evident, and it piqued my curiosity.
One product that caught my eye was the Smoky Eye Brick. The shades were richly pigmented and catered to a variety of skin tones, including deeper ones like mine. I swatched the eyeshadows on my hand, and I was amazed at the smooth and creamy texture. It glided on effortlessly, and the color payoff was exceptional.
Another standout from the Victoria Beckham line was the Satin Kajal Liner. The sleek, black pencil was a statement in itself. I had often struggled with finding an eyeliner that would stay put on my waterline without smudging or fading. But after trying the Satin Kajal Liner, I was blown away by its longevity and intensity. It instantly defined my eyes and lasted throughout the day without smearing.
Pat McGrath Labs
The other brand that many of you have raved about is Pat McGrath Labs. Known for her innovative and high-quality products, Pat McGrath has become a trusted name in the beauty industry. Despite the numerous recommendations, I had never taken the plunge to try her products until recently.
I decided to start with the Mothership Eyeshadow Palettes, and let me tell you, they are worth the hype. The pigmentation is out of this world, and the shades blend effortlessly. Each palette offers a variety of finishes, from metallics to mattes, allowing for endless creativity and versatility.
One particular shade that stole my heart was from the Mothership V: Bronze Seduction palette. “Blitz Flame” is a stunning coppery red that adds a touch of warmth and vibrancy to any eye look. The intensity and payoff of this shade left me speechless, and I instantly regretted not trying it sooner.
Another standout from Pat McGrath Labs is the MatteTrance Lipstick. The formula is exceptional, gliding on smoothly and effortlessly. It feels lightweight on the lips, yet delivers intense color and long-lasting wear. The shade range is extensive and caters to all skin tones, ensuring that there is a perfect match for everyone.
Victoria Beckham Lid Lusters
There were several products that looked interesting to me, but I did go in with a budget and I had some products in mind that were specifically recommended to me. Like these Victoria Beckham lid lusters, these come in eight Shades in retail for 36. I purchased the shades t Rose and starlight, and I decided today to go for t Rose holiday season is upon us if you are looking for the fastest way to take your look from day to night or elevate your makeup to just that next level.
Gorgeous and Glamorous
Get yourself one of these lid lusters theyre, just I cant even explain how beautiful they are. They do remind me quite a bit of The Hourglass scattered light eyeshadows, but theyre a little bit more refined. I find that the scattered light, while theyre gorgeous they are a little bit more. At least the one I have is a little bit more of a chunky has a little bit more of a chunkiness to it, whereas this formula just seems to go on a little bit, smoother, both are extremely buildable. You can layer them to your desired intensity and I just apply them with my finger and I just Im crazy crazy about these Im.
Luscious Lip Definer and Posh Gloss
Also really loving the lip definer. I purchased it in shade two and I purchased the Posh gloss in the shade Picante. This gloss is one of the best formulas Ive ever tried. It goes on so smoothly. It doesnt run outside my lip lines.
As I apply the lip definer, it glides without any resistance. The texture is creamy and the pigmentation is just right. It creates the perfect outline for my lips, giving them a defined shape that lasts throughout the day. Once I apply the Posh gloss in Picante, it adds the perfect pop of color and shine to my lips. The gloss is not sticky at all and feels incredibly comfortable on my lips. It stays in place and doesn’t feather or bleed outside my lip lines, which is a major plus for me.
These two products, the lip definer and the Posh gloss, have become staples in my daily makeup routine. They add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any look. I wish I had discovered them sooner, as they have truly elevated my lip game. I highly recommend giving them a try if you’re in search of a high-quality lip combo that will enhance your natural beauty.
The Victoria Beckham lid lusters, as well as the lip definer and Posh gloss, have quickly become my beauty favorites that I truly wish I had tried sooner. Their stunning colors, smooth application, and long-lasting formulas have exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to continue exploring more beauty gems and discovering new favorites along the way.
The Stunning Shade of Gloss
The color is stunning, it doesn’t have any sort of taste or smell, and I have applied this gloss over this lipstick from Thrive Cosmetics.
Thriving with Thrive Cosmetics
Thrive is another brand that you all have been begging me to try, especially the mascara, the liquid lash extensions. I have seen this mascara be recommended to not only me but to other YouTubers and other social media influencers over and over and over and it wasn’t until full disclosure the brand reached out to me.
No, this video is not sponsored, but they did send me well. They reached out to me and asked if they could send me an assortment of products and of course I said yes absolutely and what’s interesting is.
I actually was planning on placing a Thrive order. I figured they would have some sort of holiday sales coming up and I would try it then, but they ended up sending me the mascara, a blush, the lipstick, a liquid eyeliner and this eye brightener. I am crazy about all of it, but I am especially in love with the mascara.
The Hype-worthy Mascara
This liquid lash extensions mascara 100 lives up to the hype if you’ve never used a tubing mascara before. The benefits are that the tubes that are formed around each lash are waterproof, flake proof, and this type of mascara is amazing for people with sensitive eyes. What I love best about it is that the removal is so easy.
The Complete Thrive Experience
The assortment of Thrive products I received didn’t disappoint. The blush adds the perfect touch of color to my complexion, the lipstick is long-lasting and smoothing, the liquid eyeliner creates precise lines, and the eye brightener instantly wakes up my eyes.
Now I can confidently say that Thrive Cosmetics deserves all the praise it has been receiving. I can’t believe I didn’t try their products sooner, but I am grateful they reached out to me and introduced me to their amazing line.

If you’re like me and have been hesitant to try out new products, I encourage you to take that leap and give Thrive a try. You might just find your new beauty favorites that you really wish you had tried sooner!
Thrive Mascara: The Holy Grail for Lash Length and Lasting Power
The results I get from this mascara speak for themselves. I have never seen my lashes look this long and dark, and have that look last all day long. You just use warm water and your fingertips, and the tubes just slide off your lashes. It can be a little bit scary at first because it does look like your lashes are coming out, but it’s not your lashes, it’s just the tubes. Then you wake up the next morning, and you don’t have any smudges or flakes or anything. It is such a clean removal process. That is something I have found across the board with these Thrive products. They are really, really long-lasting.
Kim Blush: The Perfect Everyday Nude Pink
This blush is so pigmented. They sent it to me in one shade called Kim. I will definitely be ordering more. It is the perfect everyday nude pink. It is so richly pigmented, and it also has this sort of diffusing effect on my skin. It’s just honestly one of the most beautiful blushes I’ve ever tried.
The Amazing Liquid Eyeliner
I love, love, love this liquid eyeliner. It is so easy to use. This is the most perfect dark brown. If you don’t want to use black, although you can get it in Black, this shade is perfect. It glides on smoothly and lasts all day. It’s a game-changer for achieving that perfect winged liner.
Brightener: The Magic Wand for Brightening
This brightener is my new favorite for well brightening, especially right here in the inner corners. I’m putting a little bit right under the arch of my brow. This comes in several different shades as well. It adds a touch of brightness and glow to those areas, making my eyes pop and giving me an instant refreshed look. It’s a must-have in my makeup routine.
Thrive Mascara: A Sudden Obsession
I must confess, I am a Thrive convert through and through. Their products have completely won me over, but there is one item that has captured my heart like no other their Lash extensions mascara.

A Blush that Steals the Show
Another Thrive product that I wish I had tried sooner is their blush. It’s safe to say that this blush has become my new Holy Grail. The formula is incredibly pigmented, giving my cheeks a natural flush that lasts all day. The color selection is also impressive, with shades that suit every skin tone. I can’t believe I went so long without this amazing blush in my makeup routine.
The Regret of Missing Drugstore Products
As much as I adore Thrive, I can’t help but feel a twinge of guilt that I haven’t included any drugstore products in this video.
