I have to say that I love collecting skin care samples and rarely do I purchase from websites that don't offer free samples. Samples is my way of trying out the product before I purchase the full size, which we all know can become quite expensive especially if the product doesn't work for us. I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to organization and I like being able to find things when I need them. This is my way of organizing my samples, I use plastic ziploc bags and tape labels onto them by categories. I show this all to you in the video below and I also gave you a mini tour of my makeup and filming area as well.

Beauty ~ By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder, Hydra-Face Primer, Hydra Eye Primer Review, Swatches & Video Demo on Brown Skin
Investing in good quality base products has become quite the obsession of mine as of late. I've been reading the reviews on the Hydra-powder for quite a while and everyone kept saying how sheer it was so I really wanted to try it. Not seeing any reviews on brown skin made me even more curious as to how it would preform and I must tell you that it did not disappoint! Anything that is hyaluronic based automatically has anti-aging properties that prevents the early signs of line formation and wrinkles and now we're seeing it in other products besides face creams and oils.

I've had plenty of time to test drive the NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base because I received a sample (small tube in photo) inside a gift bag sometime ago. I didn't use it right away because I was so stuck on other brands, but it was time to try something new.
My eyebrows are very sparse so I had to have them very thinly tattooed, then I fill them in with brow pencils and powders to create the shape. It's imperative that I use some kind of base so my brows will stay on all day... imperative because I don't ever want to do a makeup check and see smudges on my brows... how awful would that look!

I'On my quest to find the perfect primer, I purchased this Benefit Dr. Feelgood Eye Primer from Sephora without any prior knowledge of how it wears. Well, i'm not totally pleased although i'm not displeased either. It did not work well alone and I experienced some creasing on both eyelids after 2hrs.
I decided to try it again with Mac's Painterly Paintpot over it and I was very pleased with the results. I didn't experience any creasing all day long and my eye shadows looked very nice at the end of the day.

I wanted to share one of my favorite primers for the eyes that I stumbled upon and come to love. To be honest, I have hooded eyelids due to aging, but I realized there's certain eye primers that are so matte and sticky that they actually help my eyelids stay up.
Guerlain's Eye Primer is one of those really matte sticky primers that perks up my lids and keeps them from sagging, so now this has become my everyday eye primer for now.

I saw a few YT videos where this was used to apply glitter with absolutely no fallout so I decided to buy it for myself and see how it worked for me. I'm amazed at how smooth this glides on over the eye shadows without loosing any pigmentation and even more amazed at how the glitters sticks to my shadows. I have to say that I didn't experience any fallout and I was totally happy with the final results.
