I’m pretty sure that I have enough makeup to last me a lifetime, so I’m always challenging myself to switch up my makeup routine a little bit more and use up some products that have been hanging around in my makeup drawers for a while. But I’m also always curious about new beauty launches and I just love playing with makeup – I’m sure all the beauty junkies out there get me. So today, I wanted to share some awesome new beauty finds and a couple of old favourites that I’m enjoying using at the moment. So without further a do, let’s have a nosey inside my makeup bag.
Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette
I’ve been reaching for the Gwen Stefani palette a lot this month. It’s such a lovely mix of shades and textures in this absolutely gorgeous packaging. I like to stick to the more neutral side when it comes to eye shadows and this is essentially the perfect neutral palette. I love the mix of shimmery and matte shades and the quality of the shadows is on point, very rich, pigmented, buttery smooth and blendable. I also love the fact that this palette comes with a huge mirror, which makes it perfect for traveling. Unfortunately, this palette is limited edition so I highly recommend getting your hands on this beauty ASAP!
Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector
Though I wouldn’t say I’m a big lip gloss lover, I find myself reaching for the Clarins Lip Perfectors a lot on a daily basis. Clarins are one of my favourite brands and I adore their makeup and skincare products. The Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors are one of their most hyped up beauty products and I can totally understand why. These glosses really help to keep my lips moisturized without that annoying sticky feeling. They smell absolutely amazing like vanilla and add a little something special to your lips. They come in a few different nude and soft pink shades – perfect for your everyday makeup.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush
If I had to pick my favourite out of all my drugstore blushes I would definitely choose these Max Factor blushes. I have them in two different shades and I absolutely adore them. The pigmentation is incredible and I especially love these blushes in the summer as they add such a beautiful glow to your cheeks. They feel very soft, buttery and are super blendable. Each blush comes in a small, round acrylic pot and I actually really like this simple packaging. Also, who could resist this beautiful marble design? I think it gives the product such a unique look and quite a luxe appeal.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Concealer has always been my favourite product to get from the drugstore. I’ve tried a few high end options but I don’t find them to be any better than my beloved Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I tend to go through concealer really quick compared to a foundation or BB Cream so I’m glad that this product doesn’t break the bank and I can always repurchase it when I’m in need of a new one. I love the coverage of this concealer and it’s very creamy and blendable. I’m using the shade 15 and I think it’s the perfect shade to hide the dark circles under my eyes and cover up any blemishes.
