Good Evening Beauties!
This month has honestly not been much of a makeup month for me. It has been quite stressful throughout this month, and most days I was rocking minimal makeup. I have so many new things to try out, but I only got to truly test a few of them.
This months love it or leave it is a shorter one, but I decided to still post it. Hopefully next month I will test out more products so that I will have more to include.
- Contour Eye Pencil 12 Hour Wear Waterproof from the Sephora Collection
My top favorite this month hands down has been this eye liner! I got it as a sample in a kit during the VIB sale and I have not put it down since then. My eyes get irritated very easily, and they will often get watery throughout the day. It is almost impossible to get a liner to stay in my water line. However, when this liner claims to be smudge proof and waterproof it is not lying! I can apply it to my water line, and it does not move for the entire day. I have worn this for 15 hours straight, and it looks flawless at the end of the night. I will certainly be purchasing a full size of this. It is my new holy grail product for sure.
- Huge Extreme Lash Mascara from Stila
I got this mascara in a deluxe sample by cashing in some of my points at Sephora. I didn’t have high hopes because honestly I’ve never been completely amazed by a mascara. I have loved many, but never really found one I would call holy grail until I tried this one. As soon as I went in with this mascara I was in LOVE! My lashes look gorgeous after using it. It gives me so much volume, and darkens my lashes perfectly. I honestly don’t even feel the need to wear false lashes when I put it on because it makes me love my natural lashes. I have used this nonstop this month. If you like voluminous lashes then it is definitely worth a try!
- Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia from NARS
As soon as I swatched this eye shadow I was in love with it. I usually don’t gravitate towards metallic shadows, but this one is so gorgeous. One swipe and you get instant intensity. This specific shade is gorgeous for day-to-day wear. I have been wearing it to add a little something to my simple quick makeup routine. If you haven’t tried one of these shadows then go to a store and swatch it! Trust me, they are worth the price.
- Butter Gloss in Tiramisu from Nyx Cosmetics
Typically I am a matte lipstick girl. Rarely do I ever want to wear a gloss. However, this month with the weather changing a lot my lips have been extra dry. I have been trying to stay away from my matte lipsticks to get as much hydration in my lips as possible. My go to gloss is always a butter gloss from Nyx. They are affordable, creamy, and simply amazing. When your lips are dry they feel extra luxurious on the lips. The shade I am currently obsessed with is Tiramisu. It is such a perfect shade to enhance your natural lips, and it works great as a topper for your lipstick. It is pigmented but not too pigmented. Definitely one of the best glosses on the market.
- Brow Pomade in Dark Brown from the Ulta Collection
My only leave it this month is the Ulta brow pomade. I have tried so hard to love this product, but I just can’t. I don’t like the way it makes my brows look, and it fades off in spots throughout the day. Any place I use it to over draw my brow it will start to fade. Then I notice that my brows don’t match because some parts have faded while others did not. I have been trying this product out for a couple of months now, and I finally give up on it. It is definitely not a product that works for me.
Thank you so much for reading! Have a great evening, and I will be back Friday!
