Blogged while very sunburned. We finally got sun here in the mitten state and my skin isn’t really digging it.
Happy Monday lovelies! I am back with another Makeup Monday to cure your blues. I went to Sephora on Saturday with a friend of mine who asked me for some help in getting started with makeup. While there I, of course, bought some goodies for myself.
I got three products that I have wanted to try for a while now, and one and I couldn’t pass up. Let’s get started!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Like most of the world, I am on a lifelong journey to find the perfect concealer, as well as the perfect pair of jeans and the perfect bra, but that is another story. Everyone and their brother has talked about this Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, so I figured it couldn’t possibly be bad. I am very impressed with it, a little thicker than I am used to but applied well and lasted a long time. I will know more with time. I got the shade Light 2 Vanilla the lightest color was sold out. With a price tag of $29 this better be amazing!
Anastasia Beverley Hills Liquid Lipstick
Again this product has been talked about so many freakin’ times and because of YouTube and blogs like mine, I just had to give it a try. I swatched a ton of colors on my hand, but the lighting in Sephora is a joke. I went with the color Milk Shake, and I absolutely hate the color on me. It is too pink and too washed out for my skin color. These lipsticks are $20 each.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
As we all know liquid lipsticks are HUGE right now, and almost every cosmetic brand is making them, Stila included. I also swatched some of these colors and realized some of them are an exact match to the Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks. I picked up the color Baci and also didn’t really dig it when I put it on. But when I put Milk Shake on top I really liked the combination. The Stila really did stay on a very long time; I applied it before I left for dinner and didn’t even have to reapply after I ate. I highly recommend this product, and it can be yours for $24 each.
Tay’s Tip: Wear a super hydrating lip mask underneath a liquid lipstick. I usually use Nicole Guerriero’s Best Damn Beauty Best Damn Lip Mask Supercharged Lip Hydrator. WOW! That is a long name.
Bobbie Brown Mini Shimmer Brick Compact
This shimmer brick is a beautiful shimmery bronzer with multiple different shades in it for any look you are trying to accomplish. I swatched this on a whim and just had to buy it. They also make a bigger compact, but it’s honestly not that much larger. The mini is a great option for traveling and when you have run out of room in your vanity. Sold for $24 each.
Well ladies, I hope you have enjoyed this update on what is going on with my makeup collection. Until next time!
