I recently made quite a few beauty purchases that I loved so so much, so I thought I’d make a beauty favorites post so I can gush about them to you guys! Trying out new stuff is so much fun, but it’s all that much better when you find products you adore! Up ahead an eyeshadow primer, eyeliner, bronzer, lipgloss and lipstick goodness!
Wet n wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer – guys, I’m literally smitten with this one. When you put it under your eyeshadow it ain’t moving anywhere. It’s brilliant and cheap! I don’t know why I haven’t heard of this gem before, but since I bought it I use it all the time. Literally for the whole day the eyeshadows stay put and do not crease at all which is like a miracle! If you haven’t tried this one before, buy it, it’s a real game-changer!
Nyx Colored Felt Tip Liner in Cobalt Blue I bought for the summer vibe that I’ve been feeling recently. It has such a wonderful, deep cobalt blue color! Looks amazing on the eyes, I love making a double line with it – first I apply dark brown or black eyeliner and above it this one, it looks awesome! Stays on really well and doesn’t smudge. I love that the color is really intense. The felt tip is quite thin so it helps to make lines precise.
Guerlain Terracotta Light I have in shade 02 for blondes. I’m so in love with it, it gives a delicate bronzed effect that you can layer on. That way you can easily control the amount of bronzer you apply depending on the look you’re going for. The bronzer is a mosaic of matte bronzes, shimmery ones and pink tones. The effect it gives is mostly matte with a hint of shimmer that looks so natural and lovely! It is on the expensive side, but I think it’s a really good investment. It blends really good, doesn’t leave smudges or patches. As with all Guerlain products, the smell is absolutely fantastic, I cannot help myself from sniffing it each time I use it.
Swatches – on top Max Factor’s Lipfinity in Evermore Sublime, down Clarin’s Gloss in Water Lily
Clarins Gloss Prodige in Water Lily, I wrote about it in best lipsticks for spring. It’s honestly one of my favorite lip glosses. It’s thick and sticky, but it makes it last really long on the lips and the shine it gives is fabulous, the gloss sparkles and catches the light in just the right way. I love applying it especially when I have dry lips, because not only it looks amazing, but it also nourishes them.
Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick, I have in shade Evermore Sublime (I think that’s what the shade is called, turns out the shade name was only on a sticker that I tore off). I really like the Lipfinity lipsticks, because they last quite long on the lips (they do disappear pretty fast when you eat though) and are not drying at all. The shade is really great for everyday wear. It has a creamy formula that’s easy to apply and gives a satin finish. The color is really well pigmented and looks very pretty on the lips. I enjoy using these when I am tired of my matte lipsticks.
