Senna Cosmetics Winter Do You Dare Collection Review

I have had this collection for maybe two months but I have been testing out the Lasting Illusion Satin Matte Foundation, so I wanted to give it a good go before I posted.

Silver Lining eyeshadow $18
First off the eye shadow in Silver Lining is perfection! I always have the problem with grey or silver eyeshadows turning blue on me, this one stayed true to color the whole time I wore it! Very pleased with that! It has great pigmentation and blends beautifully. 

Pin Point eye liner $20
Next is the Pinpoint Micro Tip Liquid Eyeliner. I was super excited to get this! Over the past year I have become quite fond of these felt tip liquid liner pens. I'm always trying new ones out and can easily say this is one of my faves, out of the 7/8 of them I have lol. It glides on easily. Doesn't tug or skip. It dries down to a dark matte black. You can easily get a nice thin line or go thicker. Love love love it. 

Ooook you all know I love some red lips!!! This is by far my top pic of this collection!! Venetian Red lipstick and Maraschino Lip Lacquer are everything!! This is a perfect red lip for any occasion! Venetian Red is more of a warmer red but I love it. Pair it with the lip lacquer and it's a show stopper!! In the lip swatch above I'm wearing Crimson lip liner with Venetian Red lipstick on the top right, and bottom left it's topped off with Maraschino lip lacquer.

Silver Lining, Pinpoint eyeliner, crimson lip liner, Venetian red lipstick, and Maraschino lip lacquer.

Last but not least is the Lasting Illusion Satin Matte Foundation. $48 each.

This luxurious, long lasting fluid foundation gives skin perfecting and 16 hour flawless coverage with a whisper smooth feel. The modern satin matte finish captures and reflects light from fine lines and wrinkles for an exceptionally youthful appearance. It erases imperfections, won’t settle into lines, and looks seamless on the skin. Works beautifully for all ages and skin types.

First of all I love the sleek packaging. It comes in a pretty glass bottle. I love that it has a pump as well. It makes it much easier and sanitary to use. 

I got this in two shades, buff and sand. I was really unsure about which shade to choose so I was happy I got two along with a few samples to further find a suitable color match. Buff is a hair too light but sand is just the right match. 

I've worn this many times already and have grown to like it. The first time I wore it, it seemed a bit cakey. It is a matte finish foundation and is a much thicker consistency then say compared to Estée Lauder's double matte foundation. It requires more work to blend in evenly. After trying it with different primers and moisturizers I have found what works for me and I do like it. It does give the skin a matte finish that lasts for quite a long time. I think the longest I was able to wear it was 8 hours. I did have to blot some shiny areas about 4 hours in, but it still looked great at the end of the day. Currently my skin has been a bit on the dry side because of winter, probably the reason for it looking cakey when I first used it. I'm curious to see how this will fare in 100+ degree weather come summertime. 

I would say this has great coverage, around medium to buildable. 

It comes in seven shades, so you're sure to find a color match.

Sand and Buff

Here I am wearing the full collection, including the Lasting Illusion Foundation. As you can see you can achieve a really nice classic look with a soft smokey eye, winged liner, and red lips. 

I definitely recommend you check out this collection! It's so gorgeous. I really love it all.
