Hello my beauties, happy Saturday! I hope you all had a beautiful week. Here are my favorites from this week. I didn’t have too many so this will be a shorter post than usual.
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit (original): I have loved this palette since day one but only recently did I finally get brave enough to use all of the powders. I found that I absolutely LOVE the Mood Exposure blush, which is odd for me because there is no shimmer but I still love it. The Diffused Light powders are great for a finishing touch to give my skin that extra boost of radiance when I want it. Score: 4/5
Smashbox Full Exposure palette: This was the second high end palette I ever bought and the first neutral palette. This week I was really gravitating towards the neutral browns and neutral brown shimmers. The formula is buttery and smooth for the most part. A few of the shimmers can be a little chunky but that doesn’t bother me too much but it is something to consider before you buy. Score: 4/5
Urban Decay Creme lipstick in ‘Naked’: First thing I should mention is that this lipstick is not as pink as it looks in this picture. It is more of a true nude. I love the color, I love the formula, and the packaging is on point! I love these lipsticks and I’m so excited to be able to get more. Score: 5/5
Milani Baked Blush in ‘Rose D’oro’: This was my first foray into the baked blush, and Milani, world and I wasn’t let down. The color is really pretty but can sometimes be difficult for me to pull off because it tends to pull red and darker. It’s not exactly buttery but it’s not super dry either, I really don’t know how to describe it. It’s nice and I’m glad I have it but I want to try other colors. Score: 3/5
The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer: This is newer to my collection and I really liked using it this week. It’s very smooth and incredibly pigmented. The packaging itself is sturdy and sleek and there is definitely some weight to it making the product itself feel more luxurious. Score: 5/5
Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation in 10 ‘Porcelain’: I’ve had this for such a long time and I’m so close to finishing it. I like the glass bottle which adds to the higher end feeling even though it is fully drugstore. It doesn’t dry my skin out and it goes on well enough. It may just be because I’ve had it so long but it tends to drag just a bit and be a little harder to smooth out. There is no scent which works in Maybelline’s favor and it comes with a pump, another win. I’m a little torn about getting another one once this is finished up. Score: 3.5/5
And that’s it! I told you it was going to be short, hehe. What have you been loving this week? I would love to know! Have a great rest of your weekend and I’ll be back on Monday. XO
Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be YOU!! Because you is the most beautiful you there is.
