Beauty For Real Review: A Line Designed for the Busy Woman

I get lots of brands that send me goodies. Some make the cut (because they are awesome and worth shouting out) and others get put on the chopping block! The team at Beauty For Real reached out to me and wanted me to try a few products in their line and after digging I thought “why not?”

Beauty For Real Makeup

Beauty For Real is a line of smart shades and even smarter packaging (like seriously LED Lights and mirrors to make application easy virtually anywhere, pretty genius!). They sent me the True Color Lip Cream in Barely There, the Cheek Tint & Luminizer in Gold Rush/Afterglow and a cute Illuminating Light Up nail polish in Deep Red (BTW their nail polishes are on SALE right now).

So let me start with the product I was most excited about the True Color Lip Cream, $22! I LOVE the formula, the color, the wear and the packaging. First of all it has a mirror on the side of the tube and it has an LED light making it easy to apply in the dark. If that isn’t genius I don’t know what is.

The color is beautiful! It’s this perfect pinky brown nude (a lot like the color that Jennifer Lopez often wears).  The formula stays on your lips but isn’t sticky or tacky which I love.

The Cheek Tint and Luminizer, $29 are awesome! I actually have them in my purse for anytime use. They are cream products which work very well with the Miami heat! The colors are amazing! There is one shade that is a nice gold (but doesn’t look all that gold on the face, just gives you a healthy dew) and a mauve-y shade that really adds some color. I like them together on the cheeks and a bit on the nose because it gives me a very natural looking bronze glow, perfect for that “I just got back from the beach” flush of color.


Beauty For Real is definitely a line for the girl who is always out and its packaging is evidence of the time and effort dedicated to creating the product. I’m a little spoiled now because I want all of my glosses and makeup products to come with a handy LED light or even a little mirror! Fell in love or want to play with some of their products?

Disclaimer: Beauty For Real did send me these products for review. They are offering my readers a 15% off discount using code TMW15 (I do get a %10 commission of these sales).  However none of this affects my opinions on the brand and the products. My thoughts are 100% honest as always!
