There isn’t much newness or excitement in this month’s makeup bag post.
Well, with the exception of the stunning Hourglass Ambient Lighting Surreal Light palette. While I was a little undecided for a while when thinking about purchasing last year’s palette, this time, I knew I had to have it. I mean, hello, it comes in a white marble packaging- and we all know how much I love my marble. Last year’s Ambient Lighting Edit palette was also one of my favorite makeup purchases and I still reach for it all the time, so there. I’m really liking this palette, not sure if I’ll do a review, since there are so many reviews out there already, but if you’d like to know what my thoughts are on it, let me know!
Loving: Marc Jacob polish in Blacquer– shiniest, deepest black, evah!
A lot of the products that I’m rotating right now are the same as last month’s, so I won’t bore you talking about the same things. I talked about these Armani Smokey Neutrals Eye Tints in this post, and Nude Smoke is my absolute favorite. I reach for it both when not using any other eye shadows and as a base when used with other products. It’s such a natural-looking color/product and has just enough coverage to conceal any discoloration or those tiny veins on lids. So easy to use, too.
Back in High School, I was obsessed with lip-plumping lip glosses. I loved products that had that tingling effect and this is just how this LipLift Max gloss in Petal Ice from Pixi works. Is it REALLY plumping? I don’t think so, but I love that minty tingle and hydration that it leaves on my lips. Not as good as Dior’s Lip Maximizer (HG right there, I swear I went through like 20 of them already) but it’s a nice product.
I got pretty excited few weeks ago when I found my Filmstar Bronze & Glow duo that I finally bought this Summer…. and then lost it before I even got a chance to use it. Because I’m a weirdo, I tend to collect empty product boxes and while going through them I found one that wasn’t empty…. So, it’s sort of like buying this product twice, isn’t it? At least that’s how it felt. Anyway, the bottom line is, this beauty is definitely very much worth the hype. From the packing to the product itself, it’s just perfect.
What’s in your makeup bag this month?
