Okay, so recently I’ve been treating myself to a lot of nice things because I’ve been working like a busy bee on crack for a long time, so I thought I deserved it. If you saw my post last Monday, you would see my H&M haul. When I went there, I also did a little makeup shopping. I picked up some more since then, and I wanted to share the new things I got with you.
The first thing I wanted to show you is this amazing concealer. It’s age rewind, which I don’t need but it never hurts. The application of this product is so nice, it blends really well, and it comes in this small size, or a bigger one, which I really like because it allowed me to try the product out before investing a ton of money. This is a really nice concealer, and as y’all know I’ve been looking for a good for a long time. I’m glad I finally found a good light weight concealer at the drugstore.
Brushes are such a good thing to have, but they can be pretty pricey, so I usually limit myself to one or two per makeup trip. This time I picked up the It Cosmetics eyeshadow brush in 112. It’s a good quality blending brush that’s a really good size. The next is the Face Expert Real Techniques brush. I love this brush. I feel like you could use it for a lot, like bronzing, high lighting, foundation, and (what I currently use it for) dabbing on blush. I love the real techniques brush, and am kind of on the fence about It Cosmetics, but I will need to experiment more to really create an educated opinion.
The next thing that I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH is the Hoola Bronzer. I know, I know, you’ve heard just about everything about this bronzer. It’s definitely worth the hype. It’s gorgeous on fair skin tones. I got the tiny one which was a (wow) $15.00. Totally worth it in my opinion. I don’t use a lot so it will last a while for me.
So, if you read my Everyday Makeup Routine, you know that I didn’t really care much for blush. Well the tables have turned my friends. I got this Too Face Blush in the shade Justify my Love. This blush is soooooo pigmented you really have to use a light hand. It’s a pretty hot pink that reminds me of that wind blushed look you get during the Winter, you know? The other one I got as a birthday gift from Sephora, along with the Tartiest lip paint -up there in the top corner- and I love the shade of both products. The blush is a nice nude color that is compact, you can throw it in your purse or car, and boom. Beautiful everywhere you go. The blush is the Amazonian Clay blush in the shade Paaarrttyyy. I’m so excited to use it. I LOVE Tarte products. The lip paint is ugh, gorgeous. It’s also a nude color, (shade Birthday Suit), and I love the size honestly. This color is a lot like the Katy Kat Matte lipstick in the shade Spinx. That would be a good doupe for this lip paint. It really enhances my natural lip color. Here’s some swatches of all three products:
From left to right, we have the Tarte blush, Too Faced blush -you can see the difference in tones- and then the lip paint. The lip paint looks darker here than it appears on the lips. The formula of the liquid lip is just perfection. I could rage about Tarte all day.
The next thing I picked up was the Stila highlight in the shade Kitten. I was watching Kathleen Lights last night on YouTube and she was talking about this exact same highlight. She said it was getting negative reviews, but I love this highlight. It is soft to the touch, almost like a cream, but it’s a powder. I love this for everyday wear. It glimmers beautifully. I think it would be great in the inner corner of rosy eyeshadow looks because as you can see its a nice rosy silver color. I’m obsessed. A goal is to hit the pan of this highlight before investing in another. Stila has some pretty good products. I have a liquid lipstick from them which is beyond the best liquid lip I own. You can see its beauty here.
And here we have the statement piece. So my friend Hailey and I were discussing which one I should get because I was bouncing back and forth between this Too Faced Peachy palette or the ABH Modern Renaissance palette. We had decided Modern Renaissance was the best choice, but when I went to Sephora they were out. So I picked up the Peachy one and I’m glad I did. I will still go back for MR but this one is so beautiful. The colors are insane.
The reason why Hailey and I thought that MR was better is because the layout of this palette is. A. Mess. I used it for the first time today, and although the colors are unlike any other palette that I own, it is so hard to coordinate a look. It’s definitely possible to make a full eye look, but it requires more creativity.
The reason why I wanted a palette with light oranges and pinks and such was because I’m planning a very special look for you guys in the upcoming future. It’s going to be epic, and I’m going to be using this palette, so stay on the lookout. I may create more than one because one thing I can say is that this palette definitely inspires me.
That’s everything I got so far. I am loving it all and having such good quality makeups really makes me wanna create more looks. I hope y’all find this helpful and it inspired you to try out new products you wouldn’t normally try. Give me some feedback on any comments or suggestions you have, I really love hearing from you.
