So if you've seen my 3 part videos on what's in my kit, you know I use Eve Pearl's cream foundations and concealers. While I love love love Eve Pearl, it's extremely pricey. I would only replace my concealers or foundations when there was a sale. But that was getting inconvenient because I had to make do while missing colors. Her foundations range from $50-$54 and only come with 2-3 colors. Recently I made a purchase of 3 foundations from Eve Pearl on the Naimie's website and with my pro discount it was around $100. A few days went by and I decided to check up on the status of my order and for some reason it was cancelled. It was a sign, or at least I took it as one. I decided to research professional foundation kits, like cinema secrets, RCMA, Graftobian, etc. Famous Makeup Artist James Kevin Bennett recommends Mehron's Célèbre Pro HD foundations in his website: www.inmykit.com . The packaging and size of foundations appealed to me. They come in a large mehron case, or I can just put each color in a zuca bag. They have clear tops to see the color, unlike some of Eve Pearl's cases. Best part is that I paid $169 for 20 different colors with my pro discount at Camera Ready Cosmetics. I'm sad to say goodbye to my Eve Pearl products but this is just more affordable. Plus, I thought the Eve Pearl concealers were too drying under the eyes. But I will always keep her salmon concealer trio in my kit.
I'm excited to have new concealers (MUFE HD Concealers) and foundations in my kit. I try to upgrade my kit whenever I can afford to so that it's my dream kit! I bought this Mehron palette at Camera Ready Cosmetics
, I love that online store and the service is great. Best part, they have a pro discount!
Oh and my Make Up For Ever Lip Line Perfector finally came in the mail! Excited to try that out tomorrow at a bridal trial I'm having.
And I finally got the last pack of Real Techniques brushes! Although, I think I'm missing one more brush from this line that I want, but I'm satisfied, I have most of them because well, I'm addicted. I really do love their brushes.
So have you guys tried any of these products?
