I tried out a lot of different beauty products this month. Here is what I’m loving, and what I returned!
1. Marc Jacobs Shameless Bold Blush (colour: Obsessed) $36
I was looking for a coral blush and this one was the absolute perfect colour. The only thing I didn’t like (that some of you might love) was that it’s a very buildable colour and I found it took a couple applications to really see the colour. So if you’re looking for a nice lightweight subtle blush, this is for you. But for me, it wasn’t exactly what I wanted and exchanged it for the blush below.
2. Sephora Collection Colorful Blush (colour: Sweet on You) $19
I LOVE this blush! I love the price even more, but seriously, this is an amazing colour and you do need a light brush stroke to apply because the colour is nice and powerful, but it looks beautiful on the skin and there are so many shades to choose from, including some contour ones! I highly recommend this one.
3. Marc Jacobs Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil (colour: Primrose) $30
WOW. I hadn’t purchased a lip liner in a long time but this one is incredible. I tested it on my hand and I could barely remove it with makeup remover, it doesn’t budge! And this particular colour is perfect for my skin and I now wear it daily!
4. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion $24
This has always been my go-to primer, but they had changed the packaging and I didn’t like that it didn’t have an application. But now it’s back so it’s perfect again. You eye makeup WILL.NOT.BUDGE with this primer. I also tried the Nars Eyeshadow Base, but it’s a tad more expensive and I didn’t see a huge difference so I’m sticking with Urban Decay!
5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel $29
This is another product I returned. I love their clear brow gel, but this one went on a bit clumpy and didn’t fill in my brows as much as I wanted to. I am trying this brow pencil, I believe the brand is new to Sephora, and so far so good!
6. Nars Bronzing Powder (colour: Laguna and Casino) $48
I had originally bought Nars Laguna but found the colour a bit lack-luster with my summer tan. So I switched to Casino, which is much darker but perfect for contouring. I recommend both colours, this is definitely one of the best bronzing powders on the market, there is no sparkle or shimmer, it’s a beautiful matte finish. Another one I like is this one, also a great option.
