Hey guys!! Today I am reviewing and testing Rare Beauty! Rare beauty is Selena Gomez's new brand exclusive to Sephora! I have heard NOTHING but good things about this brand, and it was SUPER hyped for me so I am really interested in seeing how it performs. I was surprised by the results, stick around to see my thoughts!
*** TO NOTE *** I DID NOT REALIZE that there are WAY more shades of the highlighters, 2 different blush formulas etc - I thought I received the *ENTIRE* collection but I received shades *FOR ME* so there are WAY more to choose from and I will link each individual type below, make sure you check them all out if you are interested in something that I may not have shown! (for example, I showed 4 highlighters, there are 8) they sent me the 4 lightest shades!
*Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation
*Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer
*Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit
*With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm
*Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick
*Soft Pinch Liquid Blush
*Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight
*Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner
*Always An Optimist Illuminating Primer
*Brow Harmony Pencil & Gel
*Always An Optimist 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist

  • Sis you look beautiful! So so so many maybe too many makeup gurus are so used to the basic look to contour and a heavier makeup but y’all look even better toned down!!!! Gorgeous 💘

  • Thank you, this is a beautiful look on you. I love the blush and lip gloss together. It's very innovative how the products are easy to open. I'm definitely buying the blush and gloss, plus I like Selena and her brand ethos.

  • I feel like this is my kind of makeup. If you look at my picture, you can see I like bold reds on my lips. I think with my pale skin and blond hair looks good. Others may think different, I don't know, but I feel like it's my kind of look.

  • I LOVE the way you look because I have a similar face shape and brows. That being said, and it isn't your brows, but that brow gel makes you look like you have neanderthal brows. They stick straight up, and I know your eyebrows are usually on point. Definitely skip that piece in the future 🤣

  • It's not you. I said something not negative, not positive, but benign related to these products and was attacked by the mob defending Selena personally for some very very strange reason. I'm sure they're great products for some but maybe not for those with oily skin.

  • Kristi, you look so good in this! I'm loving this more natural look. This is how I wear make up. Often I don't even wear foundation. Especially now that I'm wearing masks when I go out and to work. I also like the unkempt brow look, because my brows are naturally that way and I just go with it.

    AliasAlias26 days ago
  • I love Kristi. Been binge watching her videos since quite some time now. So, when I watched this video I lost confidence in the brand and it was already enroute. So I go, oh well, we will cross that bridge when we get to it. Finally I received the package. I tried the products and I kinda liked it. Then, I did my makeup how Selena explained and went out and I LOVED IT!!!! The smell, the texture, the longevity; everything was just wow. And I loved how it was natural and not instragrammy. I would totally recommend Rare Beauty to everybody who is looking for something easy to wear everyday. And no hate against Kirsti at all!!! Most makeup gurus are not feeling Rare Beauty because - 1. They are really good at makeup. They are able to expertly create no-makeup natural looks easily which is a challenge for most of us. 2. The brand is targeted at ease of use and daily wear. Edit - I had done a typo. Wrote Rarw instead of Rare.

  • Don't give any moms advice but you kinda put it out there, the nose Frida is the only thing we can use for new borns all over the world, with that, sterimar is a salted water solution to spray in nose, I still have mine 6years later just coz the others have stuff in it that clears it up but after few days have to stop using, this is just a saline solution. Another mom tip, karvol or eucalyptus or whatever it is called in USA, to open bronchi or nose etc, oily drops, drop onto washcloth, slide washcloth underneath baby pillow or head, cos not too in your face and dropping onto pillow leaves oily stains. Oooh, can't wait.

  • RE the blusher: Selena was on NikkieTutorials and told/showed how to use it - with a warning ⚠️: "It's extremely pigmented!" She used 2 tiny dots (paler chicks could do with even 1!), and then used a *wet* brush to diffuse it over her skin. It looked gorgeous! Nikkie did her own thing and needed to blend like an idiot and then use concealer again to make it less clownish😁. In other words: it has a manual! It'll last you a gazillion years probably*. The same goes for the rest. It's all meant to be a more natural style. (I do think you look amazing Kristi.) Perhaps the foundation sucks, but I don't use that anyway 😁 (anymore). (NB*. I've never ever followed those xxM "max months use" instructions on makeup, except for foundation and concealer, because those simply separate. As long as it looks and smells normal and okay you can still use it. Part of those expiration dates are to make you buy more makeup). I hope they bring out a bronzer and contour ASAP!

  • An almost completely cream/liquid based line meant to emphasise your natural beauty... sign me up!! I went cream/liquid based two years ago, but it's still very hard to find affordable products for my pale, sensitive face. RB is above my regular price point, but I might save up for a few things, especially since she's financially supporting mental health initiatives and this entire brand could hopefully reach girls, boys and men and women who feel less than they are.

  • Hi Kristi! Girl, that was a struggle for you! Takeaways are, if you like more full, more glam you won't not like this. Easy on the blush, a little goes a,long way (the rule should always be folowed, start small), and the products are not bad just because you might prefer a different delivery system. BTW, I believe she developed this range to be inclusive to more mature skins as well as people who don't necessarily want to look like they are wearing a lot of makeup, in addition to making some of the packaging easier for people who might have conditions like arthritis, etc.

  • Her foundation is something I did not like at all. On me it was sheer. So I’m surprised it went on so full coverage here. And I am a minimal foundation kind of person. For me less is more so completely different thoughts on that. And the foundation is just drying and emphasizes texture. I think ppl are a little bit wowed cuz this is such a good line that’s so affordable and good ingredients and it’s Selena... but the foundation is just bad. In my opinion.

Kristi knows what she's talking about and if you think she's being unfair just try the product for yourself! Y'all are going so hard for Selena and she will literally never know your name. Relax!

  • I think it’s weird the blushes are so pigmented when it’s meant to be a natural line. Buildable blushes are easier to use. That’s a reason this brand feels so inconsistent, it’s supposed to be “easy to use” and more “natural” then boom pure pigment liquid blushes that are hard for an experienced person to use.
