In lieu of a monthly favorites post for January, here are a few products I've purchased over the past month. Ever since I got into make up, I've been into higher-end products. Maybe I'm a bit of a snob about it, maybe I just fall for the gorgeous packaging. Lately I thought I would try to be more wallet-friendley and see what I can find at the drug store (besides the MAC products here!)
Well Dressed/Powder Blush/Satin
I ended up returning Pink Swoon (the haul is here) the color was a bit too bright for my liking, it's not something I would wear every day. Well Dressed is gorgeous though! It can be built up or put on lightly for every day. Loving it so far!
I've heard such wonderful reviews about this lipstick, and I've been looking for a light pink. I picked up this one, as well as a drugstore pink!
Studio Finish Concealer
This is my absolute favorite concealer! It covers everything. I purchased one in NC20 for my lighter complexion in the winter (I've been using NC30 in the summer months). I noticed this little pot has gone up in price- to $18.50! I'm pretty sure it was $16 or $17 last year. It lasts forever though, a little goes a long way.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind for dark circles
I'm hoping this is creamier, since the MAC concealer can be a bit drying for under the eyes. I got the "neutralizer" shade. There was a highlighting shade as well, but I'm not sure if that would be too bright or sparkly for under the eyes.
Covergirl Lash Blast
Just a repurchase. LOVE this mascara- it's perfect, and much less clumpy than the Lash Blast Luxe, which has glitter particles in it, making it a bit thicker than I like.
L'Oreal Magic Lumi
This is a light diffusing primer, I'm excited to try it out! The packaging is adorable. I've heard that this works really well as a highlighter too, so we'll see!
I was so excited that this was only $3! I've heard good things about this product as well. The packaging is really cheap though, I feel as though the "hinge" might break if I open and close the case too many times. The hinge is just folded plastic.
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder//Light
I've run out of my Make Up For Ever HD powder, and this one is working really well so far! It's just as finely milled, which is fantastic. The packaging is a bit bulkier than I like since it comes with a sponge applicator at the bottom of the compact.
Revlon Super Lustrous//Primrose (Creme)
This is a light, cool-toned pink. It's kind of similar to MAC Angel, but a bit brighter, and is a creme finish instead of a frost.
Rimmel Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner
Pure (pink) Innocent (nude)
I picked up two of these lip liners to use as lip color as well as liners. "Pure" is a watermelon pink color, and Innocent is nude (it's not as brown in person as it appears in the swatch down below). I haven't worn these yet, but from swatching them I can tell that they're really soft, so I'll need to be careful not to break them. They are twist up though - no wasting product :)
