I was looking for a dark purple-ish lipstick and I thought about MAC Rebel and MAC Diva, but i need if they'll look dark or not as in some pictures Rebel seems more red-ish. If you know any color please tell me! Thanks!

Rebel is def more pinky purple, almost leaning towards fuchsia on me. Diva is a purpley red but on me looks more of a deep blue red. Sometimes they can look darker when paired with a darker lip liner (most people use Currant or Nightmoth)

You might like something along the lines of Cyber, which is more of a true deep purple.

Media is very similar to Diva but slightly more purple.

A lot of times people use a lip liner as a lipstick which can be the case with Nightmoth, it’s a deep purple red. Or you can use it to darken up any other lipstick!

A cheaper option for a deep purpleish lipstick would be Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in #04

what do you think of the benefit box powders? are they worth the money? are there any drugstore dupes i could buy instead?

Asked by

I’m not the biggest fan of the Benefit box powders because some are way too sheer for my liking. However my top picks would be Hoola (great matte bronzer), Coralista (shimmery coral) and Hervana (matte medium pink). However you can totally find a matte bronzer or coral blush for cheaper so they arent must haves in my opinion :)

A drugstore “dupe” would be the Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blushes!

The Hard Candy Boxed blushes are around $6 at Walmart.

Some Hard Candy Boxed Blushes are exact dupes, some not so much. Nonetheless they are still great drugstore blushes :)

What's the best foundation brush shape for someone with acne? Or is a sponge better?

Asked by
alogicaly

I wouldn’t recommend a sponge so much for someone with acne because a sponge in supposed to be used wet which sheers out the foundation and doesn’t give full coverage. A sponge is great if you want a more dewy, light to medium coverage “naked” looking skin :)

For acne I really recommend flat top synthetic brushes! Flat Top brushes give full coverage and blend out like a dream. The brushes are tightly packed together which gives your foundation an airbrushed finish when blended out. 

Some I love are

Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer $7 

Real Technique’s Expert Face Brush $9 at Ulta and some Walgreens, Walmarts & Targets

Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki $21

Sedona Lace Flat Top Kabuki (Sigma Dupe) and currently only sale for $12!
