LOOK & REVIEW: J.Lynne Cosmetics Part 2

Yaaaay! I finally had the chance to play around more with J. Lynne Cosmetics. As far as mineral make-up goes, I've never really tried it especially when it comes to foundation. I've tried other brands like Bare Minerals but it's been a while since I've tried a different line of mineral make-up. I hope you ladies find this review helpful and I recommend that you check out their cosmetics line. (click here)

MINERAL FOUNDATION
COST: Prices may vary. Full jar is $18.00
MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 4 out of 5
OVERALL: 4 out of 5
WOULD I PURCHASE AGAIN? Yes.

PROS:
• Very lightweight
• Breathable coverage
• A little goes a long way
• Looks natural
• Medium to full coverage
• Blends easily
• Doesn't look caked on
• Long lasting

CONS:
• After I applied this foundation and went about my day I would notice my face getting an itchy sensation. More so around the forehead and around the nose area. I wasn't sure if it was the foundation or not but I've never had this happen before with other face products I've tried which is why I rated it a 4 out of 5. My skin is sensitive and I was thinking this happened because it was a new product that I've never used on my face before. The itchy sensation went away after a while.

SATIN PEARLS EYESHADOW

MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 5 out of 5
OVERALL: 5 out of 5
WOULD I PURCHASE AGAIN? Yes.

PROS:
• Colors are easy to blend
• No fallout at all
• Goes on smoothly
• Great pigmentation
• Lasts all day with a proper base

CONS:
• None so far!

OVERALL:
• I thought these eyeshadows were really pretty in the jar but they're even better when you apply it to your eyes. Some eyeshadows surprised me by their color pay off which is a good thing in my opinion. I like the simplicity of these colors and how they're very wearable for everyday looks. This would definitely be a must have in my makeup collection.
