I got trapped in a store during a torrential downpour the other day, so I found myself wandering through the cosmetic aisles and left with a pile of new products to try. I shared my first impressions and a quick demo on Instagram Stories, but in case you missed it or would rather have a quick look and few sentences about the products, I wanted to put them all in one place here.
I used a Lancome foundation and an Urban Decay lip color (Naked) in this look due to not having the right color of drugstore foundation, and really disliking the color of the lip products I bought, but the products I’m highlighting below are all drugstore.
One. essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder – has a noticeable smell, albeit not a bad one.
Two. Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara – this is a nice mascara but isn’t my favorite. I wish I would have used Lash Paradise instead.
Three. essence Pure Nude Highlighter – very subtle and easy to apply!
Four. Milani Conceal + Perfect Longwear Liquid Concealer – reminded me of Nars Creamy Concealer and worked wonderfully under my eyes. It collected a bit in some dry patches on my face and turned a tiny bit yellow by the end of the day.
Five. Covergirl Clean Fresh Creamy Eyeshadow Stick – no creases with this! It wore a bit lighter than what I was hoping for but applied really nicely.
Six. Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Dynamic Mini Palette – really nice pigmented shadows! They crumbled a little bit in the pan but blended nicely on the eye.
Seven. Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink – such a beauty.
Eight. L’Oreal Paris Le Liner Signature Mechanical Eyeliner – fantastic! Zero complaints here.
Nine. L‘Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil – I can’t stop using this. It applies beautifully, has a very fine pointed tip, and lasts all day!
