I'm going to be doing a Prescriptives tutorial on my youtube channel soon, so be on the lookuot for that! :)




Virtual Skin
Super-Natural Finish SPF 10
$32.50
Erases the line between makeup and skin. Virtual Skin Super-Natural Finish is our most natural-looking, natural feeling foundation. Weightless. Sheer to medium coverage. Long-Wearing. Oil-Free. SPF 10.
Shade: Y/O Real Ivory 05





I really like this foundation!
Not only is it a perfect color match for me, but the consistency is lovely.
It is not at all heavy or cakey- it allows your skin to breathe...
It is a light-to-medium coverage; definitely layerable/buildable.
The finish is natural, not too matte and not too dewy.



Virtual Matte
Oil-Control Makeup SPF 15
$32.50
Oil-free foundation - modernized. Oil-control complex with botanical extract absorbs surface shine and when used daily, actually helps reduce oil production over time. Natural exfoliants smooth skin, while SPF 15 and anti-oxidants protect from environmental damage. Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup SPF 15 is medium to full coverage with a satin Matte Finish.
Shade: Y/O Fresh Champagne 19



This is going to be a perfect foundation for me in the hotter months.
It soaks up any oil and leaves semi-matte finish.
If you have oily skin, then this is PERFECT for you!
The only thing is, the shade is too yellow-toned for me.
If you have yellow undertones, and maybe you are a MAC NC25/NC30, then I would recommend this for you!



Flawless Face Primer
$27.50
Smooth. Prime. Perfect.

Flawless Face Primer gives your skin the smoothest, most even texture possible, so makeup looks absolutely seamless and stays on even longer. Creates a silky canvas for ultra-smooth foundation application. Helps diminish the appearance of large pores, lines and wrinkles, while simultaneously helping to reduce the appearance of redness and discoloration. Visibly calms and soothes the skin, while reducing excess oil. Leaves skin looking clearer, less lined, and super-smooth.
Oil-free. Non-acnegenic. Ophthalmologist/Dermatologist-tested.

To use: Using fingertips, apply to face after Super Line Preventor Xtreme and moisturizer. Follow with foundation.
See how below it almost looks like a creamy cleanser?
I thought that was interesting...
This is actually a really nice primer!
Great for any skin type.
When you blend it out it has tiny micro light diffusers to help brighten the skin (this is very minute, you can hardly see it- but it's there).



Camouflage Cream
$17.50
The weightless, creamy formula of Camouflage Cream helps naturally conceal dark circles, blemishes and imperfections. Weightless, creamy formula doesn't crease. Perfect eyeshadow primer.
Shade: R/O Medium 07







This is a EXCELLENT concealer!!
The coverage is perfect!
This is one of the first concealers I have ever used years ago.
I am glad I have a tube now, because I almost forgot how amazing it is.
This shade is like a NW25 in MAC.
It has more pink/neutral undertones to conceal discoloration under the eyes.
The coverage is medium/full-to-full.
LOVE IT!!



Pressed Powder Leaves
$25
A kaleidoscope of colorful powders, all pressed together. Pressed Powder Leaves can be used by all skins to achieve a radiant all-over glow or to highlight where needed. Product shown is shade Royale Radiance (02).
Shade: Rose Baroque 04






This is a lovely finishing powder for the entire face.
You can also take a more stiff brush and focus it on the highlight.
If you have yellow-undertones and sometimes you feel like you need to life and brightness in your skin, then try this out. A pinker powder will help balance out the yellow in your skin.



U-Pick Refillable Compact
$6.50
Create your own makeup palette from an extensive range of shades. Simply choose your favorite colors for eyes, cheeks or both to fill your U-Pick Refillable Compact.

The Large compact fits either:
-3 U-Pick Cheek Colors
-6 U-Pick Eye Colors
-4 Eye Colors and 1 Cheek Color (most popular combination)
-2 Cheek Colors and 2 Eye Colors

The possibilities are endless--take it and make it your own.

Compact arrives empty.
U-Pick Eye Color
$14
The long-wearing formula of U-Pick Eye Color has a soft, smooth finish that glides on skin and blends evenly for an incredibly silky feel. Pick one single shade to fit in the Small U-Pick Refillable Compact, or mix and match U-Pick Eye and Cheek Colors to create your own Medium or Large U-Pick Refillable Compact.

Available in three versatile finishes: matte (velvety color with a flat finish), satin (satiny color with low level shimmer), and shimmer (silky, iridescent color with a high-frost finish).


Malt Sparkle 63 (sparkle)




Canyon (shimmer): "new penny"





Pongee 02 (matte): "creamy peachy beige"





Frosting 14 (shimmer): "french vanilla shimmer"









I am beyond impressed by these eyeshadows!!
They are SOOO pigmented!!!
These are excellent shades for fall.
I love like the compact, where you can do a blush or shadows- it's super convenient.



Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner
$17.50
The amazing, light-reflective shimmer of Moonbeam Reflective Lipgloss and Moonbeam Reflective Eye Color is now in an eye pencil. This new technology looks and feels different from other eye pencils, as light-reflecting pearls add a new dimension of shimmer. Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner can both line and shade the eyes for a beautiful effect.
Shade: Beaming Black ("deep pewter black")

I was hoping this would be a darker color because it is more of a charcoal/slate shade.
It is still gorgeous and glides on like a dream!



False Eyelashes
Plush Mascara
$19.50
The voluptuous formula of False Eyelashes Plush Mascara creates incredible volume, length, density and curl for a smooth, velvety finish. A special brush perfects application. Conditioners keep lashes feeling healthy and smooth.


I really love this mascara.
See how DENSE all of the bristles are?
It surely coats every single lash!!
Also, the grip of the handle is so soft and molds to your fingers- pretty sweet!



Colorscope Lipcolor
$17.50
Drench your lips in brilliant color and leave them looking luscious all day. The moisture-rich formula of Colorscope Lipcolor delivers extraordinary shine and comfort for lips you'll love at first sight. Lips are soft and moisturized, plus, you can customize your look with a cream, shimmer or sparkle finish.

-Cream: Smooth and creamy with a moist, shiny finish.

-Shimmer: Subtle shimmer and hint of sheen create a luminous finish.

-Sparkle: Multi-dimensional color saturated with sparkle for lips that dazzle.
Shade: B/R Pink Paradise ("vibrant pink with silver shimmer")




This is a gorgeous bright shade of pink.
It's a blue-toned pink.
It's super hydrating and smooth.



Moonbeam
Reflective Gloss
$17.50
Take lips to a whole new dimension of chic with Moonbeam Reflective Gloss.

This revolutionary gloss utilizes new pigment technology that actually enhances light's reflective qualities, creating a super shiny shimmering lip look without feeling sticky or tacky. Moisturizing properties condition, soothe and help heal dry, chapped lips
Shade: Neutron ("soft peach with silver shimmer")





I'm in love with this gloss!
The color is absolutely amazing (kind of reminds me of MAC Dazzleglass).
If you don't like semi-sticky lip glosses, then this isn't for you.
I personally don't mind a semi-sticky gloss because I believe it stays on longer.
