Hey my love bugs! I’ve been meaning to do a series like this for quite some time now! I think it’s time to give you guys real honest reviews about the hottest new makeup products on the market!! One thing I have always done and will continue to do is give you a straight up honest opinion. I am not being paid what so ever to do this video for you guys. (Clearly because I didn’t LOVE LOVE the product). It can be really hard to find real reviews now a days. When people find out they can make money off a product it all of a sudden becomes their new favorite. That has never and will never be me. I like to use what I like when I like to use it. No if’s ands or butts! So I hope this series can be extremely beneficial to all you makeup junkies looking for the next best product. Please comment below and let me know what products your dying to buy, but need some more info on. I love you my cupcakes!! XOXOX Carli

Seen on Me:
EarringsPrincess P Jewelry 20% off code: carlixoxo HERE
Check out my collection of my TOP picks HERE
Gray Long Sleeve Crop Top: HERE
MAC Boldly Bare Lipliner: HERE & I have regular chapstick over it!
Hit or Miss: Anastasia Cream Contour Kits
3 Shades: Light, Medium & Dark $40 each.
Overall I would have to say this kit is a 50/50 tie between hit and miss. BUT that is not allowed in this new series 😉 I am going to have to go with Miss FOR NOW! ONLY because I am still iffy on the contour shades that were released. I think the highlight shades and the overall consistency is Amazing. Anything she puts out is always impeccable quality. Hopefully in the future they come out with more options to choose from like they did with the powder contour kits!! Because if/when they do, this kit will own my life. Have you guys tried this product yet? If so definitely let me know what you think about it!
Pros: 1. Super Creamy & Blendable formula
2. Gorgeous range of highlight shades. (Warm, Neutral & Cool)
3. When I set the cream contour with a cooler powder it definitely 
pulled the look together for on camera. (I use bright blue tinted lights)
Cons: 1. Contour Shade choices. Very Warm/Orange Tones
This may be great for some people, but for me I prefer cooler/grayish tones.
2. With my bright filming lights, the final result looked wearable on camera. When I
left my house to run some errands, the orangey tones really came through which
I personally do not like for my skin tone.

I know many people have different definitions and visions of the word 'beauty'.. But mine is different. I think beauty really does come from within so basically I set up this page too help Any girl learn some super easy steps that can really help transform any insecurities that are maybe holding them back from showing their TRUE beauty.. I sound super corny. Some tutorials ive seen were confusing so I will try and keep them simple.. If i see something I can most definitely do it! ( hair and makeup related of course ... And computers but Thats a whole other story.) You know when you see something that makes you stop and say I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DO iT... Well I can help!! When it comes to makeup ive very rarely followed the rules. Ive always been a trial and error girl ..

  5. Hi Carli
    Thank you for always giving your honest opinion! I would ask your opinion on foundations. I'd love to try the Chanel but it's a bit too expensive. I currently wear the Mac Studio Fix NW20 (pale) and have for years but I'm not sure I'm keen. I was going to try the L'Oréal you always mentioned but they've just discontinued them! Please help? Thank you, sending love from across the pond xx

  6. Hi Carli,
    I would love it if you would review IIID foundation/ contour colors. She has more grayish toned contour colors, like you were saying you prefer. I am torn between Stone and Walnut. They are also cream contour colors. Perhaps you would like them because of the tone, and I would love to watch a review & see which shade you choose. Here is a link to them: http://www.maskcara.com/iiid-foundation/
    Thanks!

  7. Hi Carli,
    I hope you are well. My name is Tamara and I am from Kenya, yes all the way in Africa. I love love love your videos. I started following you on instagram then later on youtube. I have done some of your make up looks and I get complimented. I am a black girl and I was wondering if you could do a video with popular brands for black skin colour.
    thank you
    Tamara
