    I’d written off high end mascara for a long time. Then I tried the CT one. And I’m so disappointed that I love it! Not sure how many I can justify buying, but I’m definitely waiting for a sale.

    That foundation is crazy yellow for you is too distracting for my eyes, I'm too dramatic but it reminded me of "The Mask" hahaha
    I was incredibly impressed by the mascara the first time that you applied it in another video, thanks God its not available in my country $$

    Just wanted to let you know, when I watched your best and worst of Charlotte Tillbury, I did try the powder for the under eye, and I must say you are right it is the best I've tried so far. My under eyes have never looked better, and I'm going to be 59 this year and I do have alot of fine lines.

    Tip for small jars to not get stuff under the nails: Use the top if your nail like a little spatula and scoop out a tiny amount, then transfer from top of nail to pad of finger. #TwoCommentTheresa & I'm not even 10% into the video. Engaged AF!

  • Theresa Pittman

    I think it's awesome that you don't share a high-end version if your drugstore version is better. (first comment before the first minute of the video has played... per the uzsh) ;-D It's not my fault you're SO engaging!

    Hi Jessica! Great video! I've always loved your eye makeup and i think ill pick up that palette for my mom and myself!
    I was just wondering though, do you think you can adjust the lighting when doing the close ups? I can barely see the swatches or the products cause the light is so bright. Thank you! 💙

    In re: NARS lipsticks, I think you would look great in "Audrey" or "Vivien" both are in the berry family. My favs are "Annabella" and "Schiap", though the latter is a diff formula. Thanks for another awesome post!

    Hey Jess, or anyone who can let a girl know. I wanna order myself the Laneige lip sleeping mask but I'm trying to decide between the original vs the vanilla. Just wanna know if anyone has tried both? Also what is the original scent? And does the vanilla scent smell overly sweet/fake or like actual vanilla? Please let me know asap, Thanks!!

    That sapphire beauty blender was limited edition and it’s not on the Sephora Canada website anymore nor in the store so I think I waited too long to jump on that one and now it’s gone 🙁 there’s a new violet swirl one out now but haven’t bought it yet to try.

  • Shannon Harris
    Shannon Harris 7 days ago

    Loved this video Jessica! I totally agree with you on the Nars lipsticks - totally amazing. My favorite shade is Bridgette, it's like a pinky-nude your lips but better shade. Honestly it's my go-to. X

  • Alimah B
    Alimah B 7 days ago

    The Givenchy shade range has been awful for years. I bought it in 2014 and the range has pretty much made no progress since then. How stuck up is that given the industry’s attempts to be far more inclusive?

    Jessica thank u so much for this love the video but I never knew that the IT Cosmetics powders had an original version that was more matte than the illumination one. I have the illumination powder at home in my collection already but now that I watched this and found out about the original version I'm so going to get that one. So thank u. Also i'm not kidding when i say you have the cutest most precious little girl i have EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. I show my mom all of your videos that have Gigi in them and just sit in amazement at how gorgeous that little girl is and her personality is icing on the cake!

    I have oily skin and although I like the finish of the Too Die For does tend to break my makeup up faster through the day :(

  • Nicola McPherson

    My Audacious recommendation is Audrey such a pretty berry!

  • Jill D
    Jill D 7 days ago

    For the Jouer expiration: they're probably referring to the SPF ingredient. That's pretty standard to ensure maximum protection levels, so if you continue to use it just make sure you still use some actual SPF with it. :)
    I'm curious about the PTR primer for my nose, I'll have to see if I can get my hands on a sample. Also have you tried Loreal Lumi Glow powder bronzer? I'm fair too and hate most bronzers for the reasons you state and the Loreal sounds a lot like the bare minerals, I've only seen it at Walmart. The color is so subtle and glowy but it's there and I don't feel like I can overdo it. I suppose I don't hear a lot of buzz about it because it seems like people like to be able to contour with their bronzers and this one wouldn't be good for that. But if you JUST want a subtle glowy bronzer this one is gorgeous!

  • MykellAnn Fluharty
    MykellAnn Fluharty 7 days ago

    Yeah, four, maybe five, videos a week from Jess! Five would be perfect as I would have one to watch each morning as I get ready for work. 😉 By the way, my find this year is the Fresh Caramel Hydrating Balm. I would buy it for the smell alone! I got a sample in my Sephora box and was telling my husband how much I liked it. He took a picture of it, went to Sephora and got me the full size for Christmas.

    I’m shocked you didn’t mention the Benefit Dallas blush. I love your videos so much and I love your description of everything because it is so realistic and helpful!
    Also, I wasn’t gonna buy the Sultry palette because it didn’t speak to me that much, especially the random pop of pink (Bloom). However, my friend got it for me for Christmas. I am in LOVE with it. It’s a great every day palette

  • Melanie E.
    Melanie E. 8 days ago

    The Urban Decay All Nighter powder is amazing too! Try it if you haven’t. The powered and and the spray is absolutely amazing. I work in surgery and wear a mask most of the day, my makeup hardly transfers off my face when I take my mask off

  • Ivy Munro

    I haven't tried it myself, but I have heard people who have butterball grease face, absolutely swear by that Peter Thomas Roth primer. I am more normal to dry so I never thought it would work for me. I am currently on the hunt for a good pore filling primer that works for my skin type, so maybe I will give that one a try. Thanks Jessica! ✌🏼💛

    This was great to watch! Your favorites are quite refreshing. I really appreciate that you recommend products that aren't necessarily 2018 new releases or trendy but have really stood the test of time. I agree with you on so many of these (I'm particularly a fan of Charlotte Tilbury complexion products too!). Thanks for all the hard work that you put into producing such wonderful content. You run your channel with a lot of integrity and honesty and that is why I have watched you for years and will continue to do so. xo

    I think it's great that you're aiming to post 4 videos a week. I always enjoy your content and seeing your lovely face. However, please don't feel bad if you're not able to post that many videos every week. We know you're busy with your family and we know it's a lot of work to film and edit. Don't ever feel bad for putting yourself and your health first. I wish you and your family great health and success in this oncoming year.

    You mentioned the Lancome L’Absolu Lacquers. The way you explained them sounds like the Black Up No Transfer Glossy Lip Color. They sold it at Sephora, but I don't see it on their site anymore. RachhLoves did a video about them, and she is the only one I've seen talk about them. It is the craziest thing. I have two colors.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t love the ABH sultry?! I only own ABH eyeshadow palettes (Norvina, MR, soft glam, prism) but I feel like the other palettes are more true shimmers but the sultry seems to be glitter suspended in the formula. It’s just different when you put em side by side and when it wipes away it leaves glitter and I hate that. Also my ocd keeps me from getting it without that velvet outside! Lol

I get some great tips from you on what to buy and what not to waste my money on. I've only been watching you for a few weeks now. Gee I wish I'd found you much sooner.. I'm 56 years old , but we have similar skin I believe. I'm dry these days from using Retin A, and due to my age. I'm pale skinned like you also..
    I also watch Emily Noel, I love her too, for her very honest and down to earth character. Emily is the reason I found you Jessica, so happy I did 😍😀 xx

  • Jen M
    Jen M 10 days ago

    If you are into them at all, could you possibly do a drugstore version of tinted moisturizer/BBcream/ something like the luminizer moisture tint, etc.... I am in my 40's, but just cannot stand heavy powders or foundations, etc.. on my skin. if it feels like a light moisturizer, i might could dip my toes intho. Especially if it is something that would have skin benefits. Is there such? i wear mild, natural oils with eye color and lip color now, but would like to dip my toes in something light if it has benefits. thankyou so much!! Not into high end, but i love to hear your reasoning behind everything!!
