Left: Fawn
Right: Toast  
These LA Girl Pro Concealers are bomb! I've been hearing great things about them so I finally decided hey, why not try them out. LA Girl has 18 pro concealers ranging from very light shades to a deep rich cocoa shade. Oh, and did I forget to mention that each is only $1.99?! I purchased them from ikatehouse.com and I was very happy when I received them. I use Fawn as a highlight and I haven't tried out toast out yet (will try it out in my next make up look). The consistency is nice and creamy as well. You could purchase it from the same site I did or even try your local beauty supply. I happened to spot them at mine recently actually!


Wet and Wild Vanity Palette
Next up on the list is the Wet and Wild Vanity Palette. So I've recently been on a craze when it comes to the Wet and Wild beauty brand. I got this palette from Amazon because unfortunately its discontinued in stores. If you aren't up to purchasing it online, there is a similar Wet and Wild Palette called 'The Naked Truth'. Anywho, these are great neutral shades and perfect for beginners in make up.

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Dark Deepest
Fourth on the list is my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark Deepest. This is great finishing powder for my skin while not giving a weird drying super matte look. It was a little pricey but worth the money.
Ben Nye Topaz Powder
This powder is perfection. I also heard great things about this powder (Kim Kardashian's make up artist used the Ben Nye Banana Powder on her) so I had to pick it up as well. I wasn't ready to try out the Banana powder because it is extremely light so I thought Topaz would be the right fit. I use this to set my highlight with beauty blender and it works wonders. It was only $11.40 (including shipping) from camerareadycosmetics.com

Sleek Face Contour Kit
*Claps excessively* This contour kit is bomb! I was a bit afraid that the contour would be too light and wouldn't show up on my skin but thankfully it does! This little contour kit packs a punch and is very pigmented. Apply too much of this and you'll look like you have a dark streak down the side of your face instead of a contour LOL.  
Got the shade Dark and like I said I love it! Being a woman of color, sometimes it could be a little difficult to find things that work with your skin tone. Before purchasing this, I went to Sephora and I wasn't even able to find an affordable contour kit that would work with my shade. But this works and that is all that matters! It also comes with a highlight which is greeeeat.
ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder
Lastly is my ELF Bronzing powder. I swatched it on my skin so you all could see how nicely it picks up on my skin. It was only $1 so I thought what the heck why not give it a try. I apply this just above my cheek bones to give my face a healthy summer glow. It doesn't come off chalky or anything either.

 Whew! That was a mouthful LOL. These were my most recent beauty purchases and I was content with each of them. Glad I was able to share them with you all too. Give em a try!
