CoverGirl Outlast Active 24-hour Foundation review

Covergirl outlast active foundation

I purchased this. If it were not for foundation, I would be unable to wear colorful lippies or eye makeup. I have no problem walking around with a naked face, but foundation is ultimately what evens my skin and allows me to express myself in colorful makeup looks! It’s likely that I’ll never stop checking …

May Empties 2019!

Disclaimer: PR sample previously provided, see bottom. I had a bit of a light month on empties in May, with a lot geared towards the amount of travel I’ve been doing, and the excessive use of cleansing wipes I’ve been doing. I really have to keep baby wipes handy by my makeup station but more …

Morphe Fluidity Foundation Wear Test and Review

Morphe fluidity foundation

Morphe opened a brick-and-mortar store at The Florida Mall, so of course, I drug my kids and my husband for a shopping outing so I could check it out! While my family picked up some Auntie Ann’s goodies, I walked around looking at everything I’ve mostly just seen online. Like Jeffree Star Cosmetics. And the …

Purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream

Pur-lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream review

One of the things I love about covering The Makeup Show each year is that the show is an opportunity to discover either small, makeup artist cult brands or small, new brands that I might not have discovered otherwise. In May at the New York City show last year, I stopped by the Pur-lisse (Purlisse is how it’s now …

Wet n Wild Pump Makeup Locker

Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands, so when I saw the new Pump collection, I had to pick up a few of the very affordable items! The brand has launched 37 items in this “ath-beauty line,” as its calling Pump, and one of the first I tried was the Makeup Locker …

March 2018 Empties

I enjoy doing empties posts because it motivates me to finish products and use certain things up. I like to see the culmination of what I’ve used at the end of the month, and the act of purging the empty containers makes me feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth of whatever I’ve emptied. I’ve …

February 2018 Empties!

February 2018 empties post beautyjudy

Disclaimer: Prior PR sample, see bottom. When I look at my February empties laid out, it’s not a very exciting month! I didn’t use a variety or a ton of products. Alongside the few empties I have this month, I’ve got two products that I had to stop using, because I discovered they were irritating …

December Empties!

December empties on beautyjudy

Nothing to disclose December always feels like a month where you’re nearing “the end” and heading into a fresh start in January. So it felt appropriate to use up so many of my products last month! Lots of skin/hair care products, but I’ve added a new sort of category here. Vitamins. I am evolving BeautyJudy …

My Year in Favorites!

Beautyjudy.com favorites of 2017

Disclosure: Some prior PR samples, see bottom. As I considered how to approach a “favorites” post for 2017, I thought about how I’d done it in years past, but decided I didn’t want to gather up all my favorite lippies, nail polishes etc. I wanted to be specific. I thought…why not challenge myself to come …

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation shades 110 and 120

Disclosure: Store samples from Sephora. There’s been SO much hype around Rihanna”s new beauty line, Fenty Beauty. Nothing caught my eye at first except Trophy Wife, the golden glitter bomb multitasker (highlighter, eye shadow). But after seeing it in person, it’s a little too glittery for me to get my money’s worth. I’ve seen mixed …
