OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars

Disclaimer: Samples. See bottom for more. The lip trend has been bold and bright – reds and hot pinks. In fall and winter I was drawn to matte lippies, even into spring, but I don’t necessarily want to carry the bold matte lip trend into summer. I mean, I don’t know about you but in summer, I try to wear …

Youngblood Cosmetics Lipstick in Dragon Fruit

Ofra Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation

Ofra Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation is quite a luxe foundation, and overall, Ofra was a great brand find at The Makeup Show Orlando! This foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump for dispensing the formula: I received one of the fairer shades to try out, naturally!: This foundation has great coverage; it’s well pigmented. It applies …

Ofra Pro Palette

I brought more makeup with me on my trip to Florida last month than I needed. I should have known better, especially since I was going to The Makeup Show Orlando! Sure enough, among the many things that came home with me (self control is not defined in my world, apparently) was the beautiful, magnetic Ofra Pro …
