I love discovering new (to me) makeup brands. There are so many great products out there and I like trying as many as possible!
Besame Cosmetics, Beauty for Real and Cailyn Cosmetics have kindly agreed to send me products to try for my honest opinion. These are my three favorites:
Besame Brightening Violet Powder ($22 USD) — A translucent violet powder that brightens any skintone. The finely milled formula sets makeup beautifully, leaving a soft, matte finish and a subtle violet fragrance. Wear it alone, over foundation, or around eyes to instantly lighten dark circles.
What I think: This is such a beautiful powder. It has no glitter or shimmer in it, yet instantly brightens the skin. So pretty and has a soft violet scent.

Beauty For Real Get Glowing! Cheek Tint and Luminizer ($29 USD) — Get Glowing! Cheek Tint and Luminizer features a highlighter, GET LIT, which is a light, luminescent mother of pearl and the cheek tint, IN THE PINK, is a fresh pink that brings a nearly natural rosiness to the skin. There is also Get Glowing! Cheek Tint and Luminizer features a highlighter, GOLDRUSH, which is a brilliant, light reflecting warm, sheer gold and the cheek tint, AFTERGLOW, brings a flush of bronze that you want to wear all year long.
What I think: I have the Get Lit/In the Pink combo (pictured). A little goes a long way with the blush. It is very pigmented. The highlighter is very pretty. I use it on top of my cheekbones and in the corners under my eyes. It is also nice on the browbones.

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Cotton Candy ($19 USD) — This ultra matte, super-moisturizing lip balm delivers rich color and amazing staying power. This amazing lip balm is formulated with 3D Smart Film Former, which keeps colors vibrant longer. Includes a built-in brush for easy application. Wear alone or apply with the Cailyn Pearly Shimmer Balm for a more glamorous, shimmery pout. Available in 18 shades.
What I think: This balm is so moisturizing, but it is matte and covers like a lipstick. Cotton Candy is a little light for me, but I love the coverage and how soft it makes my lips feel. I like to wear it with a little darker gloss over it. Pretty!
