Hello everyone! I hope you all are well. I decided to do something a bit different for this post and put together a beauty product haul for this month so far!
I just want to note that this is not a full review of each product. I will be reviewing each in depth in the near future and will also be introducing makeup tutorials to my blog where I will feature these products.
Everything, with exception of the Maybelline Gel Liner bought in Walmart, was purchased in Ulta. My quick thoughts on the products:
Stila “The Natural” Palette
I love the soft colors in this palette. I am a sucker for pink based tones in my eyeshadows and this fit the bill perfectly. It is comprised of three matte shades and three shimmer making it perfect to create a day or night look rather easily. Due to that and it’s small size, it definitely seems travel friendly. My only negative is that the bronzer is a tad too light for my skin tone, but I think I can make it work as an overall glow.
NYX Eye and Lip Products
I love NYX products, great quality and price. As stated in my previous NYX matte lipstick review post, I adore the pigmentation and opacity of the line and Bloody Mary is no exception. It is a rich berry/red toned lipstick that I’m sure I’ll have tons of fun using. I finally got my hands on the well known jumbo eye pencils! I can see why they are popular in the beauty community due to it’s excellent color pay off and ease of use. The shade “Milk” will be great to make bright colors pop under a white base and rim the waterline for a “doll-like” effect. The liner in “Cashmere” is gorgeous! I instantly fell in love with it’s gold glow and butter consistency.
Maybelline Gel Liner
I have had my eye on this liner for quite some time. It is known for being an equivalent to some high end gel liners so I was curious to give it a try. From what I have seen from other makeup artists is that it is a richly pigmented liner that’s very opaque upon the first application. I’ll put it to the test and let you guys know if that holds true!
Keep an eye out for for detailed reviews in the near future. I am also in the works of planning makeup and hair tutorials for all of you! If you have any requests of the products I mentioned above to be featured first, comment below.
Until next time. Take care!
