    I’ve recently discovered my LM powder in the bottom of my makeup drawer and have been loving it for under my eyes!

      It’s great for the under eye area and all over the face. If I set my makeup with this, I know it’s not going anywhere all day!

      It’s my go to and those blushes last so long. Most others are gone by the end of the day and I can’t stand that.

      They’re both so good! If you have big pores like me, the primer is a must.

    I still wanna try that translucent powder and the it cosmetics primer. People swear by the those products, and now you do too lol

      The primer is so good but so pricey. I got it during a sale for 25% off and I only use a little so I hope it will last a while. Can’t be repurchasing it frequently haha
