Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation Will Come in NEW Deeper Shades

wet-n-wild-photo-focus-foundation-darker-shades

Back in September I was invited out to Brooklyn for a special early sneak peek of wet n wild’s 2017 launches. There are a ton of new products coming our way in January, but naturally I zeroed in on the foundations since they added new deeper shades to the lineup. Though the company that owns wet n wild also owns Black Radiance, we haven’t seen much crossover (okay, we haven’t seen ANY crossover) in complexion shades since—well, maybe EVER.

Oh shoot—e.l.f. has gone all LUXE on us with their latest brush collection!

I’m willing (and have been willing) to invest in makeup brushes and tools when it comes to items I’d be using pretty often in my routine because I need them to last.

beauty-supply-store-makeup

Beauty supply store makeup has come a LONG way especially since I was a teen. Nowadays you can find a wide range of shades for darker skin tones AND many beauty supply stores are now equipped with testers making them much easier to shop than some drugstores. I’ve reviewed tons of makeup you can find at the beauty supply store (L.A. Girl, NYX Cosmetics—yep, NYX is sold at a lot of the beauty supply stores near me, etc), but I wanted to try a few things I’d never tried before and had this crazy idea to do it all on camera for the first time…lol. It was—interesting…lol. See for yourself in the video below!
