Wanting to share some of my new additions as of lately. I’m surprised with how much drug store stuff I have been loving lately! Currently am on the look out for this new Maybelline highlight and can’t wait to see what else is going to come out this summer. I’m obsessed with the new Urban Decay Heat palette and of course, I just got this Too Faced one and already want the new Urban Decay one. I’m a hoarder.
Too Faced Natural Love Palette. I just got this in the mail and haven’t had a chance to play with it yet but I wanted to photograph it while it’s still fresh because its so pretty! This palette is a neutral lover’s dream and that is me! I really only stick with neutrals and this has such a great assortment of shades! I’m really feeling a smokey eye with a nude/ pink lip and I think the last two columns of shadows will be good for that!
Kimmel stay matte translucent powder. I love the Laura Mercier setting powder but it’s messy and leaves a whiter look so I wanted to try a pressed powder that had a little less coverage. I heard good things about this one and it’s like $4 so I wanted to give it a try and I’m so impressed! I thought this would flash back and it doesn’t. This keeps my concealer in place without looking cakey. You can’t go wrong with this powder!
Maybelline age rewind concealer. I really like this concealer! I am a Nars creamy concealer ride or die girl but what I like about this is the lighter coverage. I don’t wear foundation or use a base and prefer to spot correct with concealer and the lighter coverage is easier to blend. I like the Nars for spots, zits and under eyes while this is more for red spots or dull skin. I’m in the shade medium.
Maybelline Vivid Hot Laquer. These are like a glossy liquid lipstick. They stay on and wear like a liquid lip but are super glossy! I love a glossy lip and these are right up my alley. They’re a full coverage gloss and I LOVE the colors. I have unreal which is a nude color, this one is my favorite. And charmer which is a more pinky nude.
L’oreal Voluminous lash Paradise. I continue to rave about this mascara. I have not used any other mascara since I got this. If your lashes don’t stay curled, try the waterproof version and I’m pretty sure you’ll love the results.. I did!
Nudestix all over illuminator in illuminaughty. This is a holographic highlighter stick. It wears super pretty but is only holographic if you catch it at the right angle / light situation. I’m trying to see if theres a secret way to get the total holographic look. I love it with tan, dewy, summer skin.
Mac strobe cream. I’ve never been a huge Mac girl because they’re always rude at the counters/ stores! I actually found this in the beauty section at Costco of all places which is totally a hidden gem! ( I’ve seen Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks and Tatcha Spray there in the past!) I like to use this as a primer to give my skin a dewy sheen and this is perfect for that. I really like this! My dream version would have SPF.
