Hey guys! So before I went back to school I decided to buy a few products that I have been waiting awhile to get. I decided that going back to school was the best time to get these products!
I got two products from MAC, both of which I have been wanting for awhile. First I got the Prep + Prime Fix +. This product is a staple within the beauty community because it has multiple uses. It can be used to both prime your face and set your makeup. It is also known for intensifying makeup. My favourite use for it is spraying my makeup brush when applying a glittery/metallic shadow to my lid. While I was really hesitant at first to buy the full size bottle I am really enjoying it.
The other product I got from MAC is their matte lipstick in the shade Velvet Teddy. This is actually not the first MAC lipstick; I also own Russian Red but I don’t wear it very often since I’m not a big red-lipstick person. I really enjoy the formula and I find the shade is a great your-lips-but-better.
Next is product is actually a repurchase: the NYX HD Eye Shadow Base. I feel like it has been slightly reformulated since I last bought it because it is not as sticky and way greaser than the first one I had. I still like it though because it does great job of keeping my eye shadow in place in spite of having very oily eyelids.
Next I decided to buy the Maybelline Facestudio Master Blush Colour and Highlight Kit. I mainly decided to buy this because it was on sale for a good price! These blushes are very pigmented – only the slightest tap in the pan will do. They apply nicely to the face but don’t really last that long through the day, but honestly most blushes don’t last on my face. Surprisingly I like the highlight in this palette. Most highlights in these types of kits aren’t very pigmented but this one applies nicely for a medium highlight – it isn’t subtle nor blinding but right in the middle. I also like the packaging; the pans are big enough to get your brush it but overall the kit is sleek.
The final product I haven’t really used because it is too light for me! I bought the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I have heard some many good reviews of this concealer that I decided to buy it! Unfortunately for me I am currently too tan for the shade of concealer I bought. I am hoping that once my tan fades away that the shade will work because the next shade up is too dark for me.
And those are all the products I got! I hope everyone is getting well adjusted and back into the school routine.
