I have met my Holy Grail brow product. And it is called MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow. I’ll be gushing soon…

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Prime Beauty – I don’t have a discerning nose but love perfume so I go to Cute and Mundane to read fragrance reviews. Dovey doesn’t only review fragrances though, she’s all about the makeup too.

    this is an easy one for me! Mine is MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I used it to set my makeup (all I wear is L’oreal BB cream right now) and it gives me extra coverage that I love. It pulls my look together and finalizes it perfectly! I used to also love the MAC Blot Powder which is also great for middle of day touch ups.

    I have loved Lancome’s “Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup” for many years. It can be used as a foundation wet or dry, and it blends seamlessly into skin. It acts more like a liquid than a powder–no cakey feel, no sneaking into lines and crevices (WHAT lines and crevices?). If I need a touch-up–rarely–I whip it out and use it where needed.

      Aw, @stef, how long are you going to leave us hanging on the MUFE product? I’m absolutely intrigued by a liquid eyebrow product. We have ways to make you talk . . .

    I use MAC’s Blot Powder for touch-ups, but my absolute favorite is Ben Nye’s Luxury Powder in Banana! I used it in college but I’ve fallen in love with it again. I have a hard time finding powder but this yellow baby is great because it sets my makeup without giving me a whitish porcelain doll look. Plus, it’s huge and lasts forever…
