Lately I feel like I'm drowning in products I need to review. I decided to put these few products together. Another haul from earlier this month will follow soon. Some are presents and some I've recently bought.
I'll start with the cheek products since I'm really enjoying those. How cute is The Balm's packaging? My sister gifted me the Bahama Mama. It's been one of my favorites.
The Balm Bahama Mama - Bahama Mama is a cool toned brown matte. You need just a little to achieve that perfect contour. This doesn't leave me looking muddy. It's lasted about 6-7 hours on me. I prefer this over their Betty Lou Manizer. Retails for $20.00
NYX Ombre Blush - NYX recently released their ombre blushes. It features two shades that blend together to create one shade. My friend gifted me the shade "Nude To Me." It has really nice pigmentation, but is a bit powdery. The two shades make up a shimmery bronze blush. I get about five to six hour wear. Retails for $9.99.
Makeup Forever Pro Sculpting Duo 02 - This duo is called "Golden." The highlight is a shimmery golden color. The bronzer is a satin warm orange brown. The duo is long wearing and can be buildable. The duo is a gel powder formula. I got about six to seven hour wear. Retails for $39.00.
NYX Liquid Suede - The shade "Vintage" is a plum with mauve undertone. One swipe gives you good coverage. You really need to exfoliate and make sure your lips are moisturized before applying this. It will showcase any dryness you have. It dries to a matte finish. It retails for $6.99.
MAC Teddy Eye Kohl - I purchased this due to Will Work for Makeup. I'm glad I did! It's a bronze brown with a metallic sheen. It's really creamy and brings out the eyes. It retails for $16.50. It's a little pricey for an eyeliner, but it has a lot of product.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - I have the shade Medium Light. It's a medium coverage concealer. I don't experience any creasing with this. It's a dewy matte finish. I won't be repurchasing though. I tend to break out in the under eye area after using it. Not everyone's skin is the same, so I'm sure this can work for you. It retails for $28.
ELF Contouring Brush - This really defines my cheek bones. Like "Whoa, look at those cheekbones!" The brush is soft and picks up enough product on the first swipe. It costs $6. Go ahead and get one!
ELF Studio Small Stipple Brush - This brush is versatile. I like it for applying cream blushes, cream high lighters, and applying foundation. It's soft and sturdy. It costs $3.
What have you bought recently?
On another note..
- I got off Sephora's wait list for their subscription. I'm so excited!
- I've been thinking of dyeing my hair, but I'm not sure yet.
- Urban Decay released their Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection today. I want to purchase it mostly for collecting purposes. I talked myself out of it. Will you be getting anything?
