Recently I've gotten quite a few makeup products and seeing as I talk a lot about skincare on here it seems, I thought it'd be nice to discuss them briefly and let you know how it's going.
I though it would be cool to start up an "empties" section on the blog. There's really no better way to see how well someone liked something till you see it getting used up. Also I love watching empty videos on YouTube. This also helps to make me finish up a product not just skip around until they expire. It literally makes me use them up. I think I've got a good amount to talk about right now.
Makeup doesn't have to be fancy. I'm so happy to see the days gone where drugstore makeup really looked atrocious. So glad to not have to go and choose just one thing from the Clinique counter (because it was the least pricey at the time) help your makeup when it really didn't, but we all have that mint green compact didn't we girls? So dang glad to see more affordable brands coming into Sephora and indie brands making a huge impact thanks to online availability. So I compiled a list of my least expensive but favorite products for as many category's as I could. I think I pretty much have them all.
I've been playing with the Natasha Denona Diamond Blush palette for about 3 weeks. I didn't know if I wanted to review it or not because I genuinely got it for myself and I picked the Citrus one because I loved that gold/yellow highlight over the coral pink blush. I already knew there would be things I didn't like about it so that's what gave me pause briefly.
I finally got around to trying some new launches in makeup. My no buy is over. Which gave me a full month to watch releases, reviews, and really see what I wanted to try. One of those products being the NARS Natural Radiant Long Wear foundation. It had good reviews from everything I saw. I in general, love NARS foundations. So I was very excited.
OK. WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE GLITTER OVERLOAD PEOPLE!? Listen, I know that we've shared plenty of articles and discussed this a few times already but apparently the brands aren't getting the message. QUIT PUTTING GLITTER IN PRODUCTS!!!! I'm down for loose glitter pigments for the eye, I'm ok with glitter eye shadows or oversprays of glitter in my eyeshadow. BUT I DO NOT WANT GLITTER ALL OVER MY FACE AND THEN IN MY SKINCARE AS WELL. ITS A "NO" ON BOTH CATEGORIES.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
