Guys, I’m so sorry this first week back in class is already kicking my butt so hard but I promise I am trying! I have a few posts coming your way that I cant wait for you to see but for now, I’m just gonna show you how much of a shopaholic that I am because I just LOVE trying new products. (If you know me by now, that came out with so much sass) I’ve kind of just been holding on to these products for a bit so whatever I used I will give you guys my first initial thoughts on them.
Sephora Collection Make No Mistake Foundation and Concealer Stick in 08 Bamboo ($20)
I got so excited for this one because I have yet to find a good stick foundation that is more affordable than the expensive Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick because I don’t think I am ready to spend $46 on a foundation that is less than 1 ounce product wise. Anyway, because the discount was half off at the time I picked this one up. I have used it a handful of times and so far I really like it. Its medium coverage but very buildable. Its super easy to blend out and looks and feels like my skin but with a matte finish.
NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder ($3.99)
So I was in the store and randomly saw it sitting there and something told me to pick it up and guess what? I’ve been using it since I picked it up!! I use it to sent my under eye concealer and I even took a fluffy brush and dusted it all over my face. There wasn’t any flashback and I felt my makeup looked better toward the end of the day when I used this powder to set my foundation.
Sephora Collection Make No Mistake High Coverage Concealer in 09 Almond ($14)
One of my Sephora / Beauty Lover friends has been raving about this concealer and I trust everything she recommends to me because we have a similar skin type. I have yet to use it on my face but I have played with it on my hand and its SUPER pigmented, blends well and a little goes a long way! I plan on using this when I do a brows, concealer and powder day!
Kat Von D Shade and Light Quad in Sage ($15)
I got this because it was on sale for $15 and I really loved the huge tan shade because it is my perfect transition color and I felt like this would be a good palette to put in my bag and go with it.
Update: When I opened it, the tan shade fell out of its pan so I’m going have to glue it back in wahhh!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Peachy ($18)
So knowing me, you guys KNOW that I love lipstick and had to pick up a few of these shades for their new lipstick line. A lot of people were raving about how pigmented and long wearing they were and I was sold. Peachy is a true peach and very warm, something that I currently do not have lipstick wise.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Honey ($18)
Honey is probably my perfect everyday nude shade and I actually wore it as soon as I opened it up!
Cover FX Blotting Powder in Light
This is what I have been waiting to try. I needed a good powder to throw in my bag to control this oil! I took it to school and it worked out fabulous.
Anyways, thats my quick haul. What are some of the things you picked up recently? I would love to know!
