J Cat Beauty doesn’t have a large range of products. They are smaller company, but I enjoy most of the products I’ve tried. They have fair skin friendly products which I appreciate, but they aren’t many deep shades and that’s unacceptable. A lot of people love their Pris-Metal Chrome Eye Mousses but they didn’t work for me. I hope the brand will continue to grow and release new products.

I LOVE Juvia’s Place. Their shade range and tones for their complexion products are amazing. They have something for super fair skin like mine and the deepest, darker tones as well. I have loved all the products I have tried from them. Their complexion products are full coverage so if you light a tinted moisturizer, no makeup look, you might want to skip over those. I haven’t tried their eyeshadows because I don’t wear eyeshadow often, but I know lots of people rave about them. This brand is one to watch.

If you’re into makeup and YouTube, you know Jeffree Star is a controversial figure. I’m not here to discuss him as a person, I’m only about the makeup. The man knows makeup and how to make good makeup. I love his concealer and his powders. I do like his liquid lipstick formula and his lip liners, but it’s not something I can’t access easier and cheaper. I love his concealer and setting powder. He has an awesome shade range and products for fair skin folk like myself. I hope he will make a foundation in the same formula as the concealer.
