Today's post is going to be a haul from both ULTA and Sephora. They arrived only days apart and I'm actually still waiting on 2 more items from Sephora. I just thought I'd go ahead and do a haul post since it's all new product I've not tried. It's mainly skincare. Cause I'll be honest, I'm not doing a ton of makeup looks right now since I'm home ya know? There is a sprinkle or two of some non-skincare items though. These orders were from sales that both stores were having at the time.
Alright guys, there's a new trend that is supposed to take over 2020 and concealers in general. It's basically moving away from really high matte coverage concealer into a more luminous look. So there's a lot of concealers that are "brightening" concealers coming out right now. I read about the "new trends for 2020" online and this one caught my eye. I personally would love to see people moving away from the really high coverage concealer and baking the face. It looks good in pictures but trust and believe in person it is too much for a lot of people. Plus it's a lot of work. I would love to see a more "fresh" look. So I picked up one that was mentioned in the article which is Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand. This won't be the only concealer I try within this trend, it's just where I'm going to begin exploring this new move.
Today we're here to discuss a palette that I've been loving lately. It's the Charlotte Tilbury "Glowgasm" palette. I am getting quite a selection of her products now and I must say she has more hits than misses. I expect no less though, she's an accomplished MUA. Her team done the Victoria Secret Fashion Show makeup last year. She's got a ton of celebrity clientele and just as many fans of her products. She helped develop products for other brands over the years, before she started her own, and she's looks like the brightest and happiest person you've ever seen.
Man, so far it's been the year of foundations and base products for me. Which oddly enough is what I wanted 2018 to be. 2018 didn't deliver for me, but 2019 really is. So with that being said today we're talking about Veil Cosmetics Sunset Skin Foundation and Complexion Fix Concealer/Corrector/Highlighter. They sent this to me. I didn't have to do a blog post but it's by far the most tested product I've had in a while. I've used this every way possible for weeks and weeks and I wanted to talk about it. Let's go.
Let's talk about something I've been LOVING lately, which is the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette. I know you hear or see "Dior" and the head tilts.... at least for me anyway because I start to think of the price. What I'm happy to say is that the "backstage" line is actually not nearly as expensive as you'd think.
I don't talk about primers very much on here. That's because there's very few that I like. However, Beauylish sent me the Lumilayer (Original) Primer and Lumilayer Metal Cushion by VDL which is new to their site and I wanted to discuss them
**This isn't my picture. I'm not that talented. I'm also in bed with strep, so I used one of FAB promo pics**
As you know I'm a huge fan of First Aid Beauty. They've been branching out into makeup more and I'm a big fan of their tinted moisturizer and so are many of my friends who I've had try it. So I was equally excited to try their Bendy Avocado Concealer. Now that I've tried it, I'm here to discuss it with you.
This product we're talking about today is kind of like an "unsung hero" in my opinion. I'm hearing nothing about it since it's release. I have some pros, obviously, and cons as well. Let get into it.
Alright Too Faced......you didn't come to play did you? So if you've not heard, which I can't imagine why you wouldn't have, everyone is talking about the new Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi Use concealer (that's the official name on Sephora, don't know why it says Sculpting Concealer on the bottle). There is another Born This Way concealer that I personally disliked but they've launched this one in just the past few weeks and nearly every person that has tried it has loved it. Including me.
Yes another face palette. The reason I wanted to do this right after the Too Faced Face Palette is because it's easier for you to compare them since they're both a face palette.
