My current beauty favorites. All MAKEUP!
21 Aug 2017
I’m typing this while there’s an eclipse going on. If I didn’t have small kids I would go out with special glasses and take pictures, but taking them out for this purpose is not an option right now. Haha! 😀
Anyway, here’s a quick blog post to show you guys which products I’ve been enjoying lately, my beauty favorites. I’ve been kinda slacking when it comes to writing full reviews (there’s never enough time in a day), so I hope you’ll enjoy these mini-reviews. If you do want more info, swatches or other pics…let me know. This is part 1, there will a part 2 tomorrow.
These are so beautiful! You can wear these alone, but I really like them over a lipstick. It makes my lips looking luscious and super pretty! They are holographic and shade-shifting, making your lips look multidimensional and fuller than they really are. My favorite is Topaz X Gilt, which is golden bronze with a soft emerald shift (top). I also really like Champagne Dream X Bellini, a soft peach with rose gold shift (bottom). Try these if you get a chance!
This is a blush, bronzer, and highlighter in one. I received it with a special brush (Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush), which is really nice too. You’re supposed to apply all three in one ‘sweep’, but I don’t really use it that way. I always mix and match makeup/brands anyway, so sometimes I use just the blush or just the highlighter from this palette. Works too!
These powders give me a nice glow and warm, without making me look super shiny. Like all makeup from IT Cosmetics, this palette contains anti-aging ingredients. It’s talc-free, which is great if you have sensitive skin like I do. It comes in 3 different version, the ones that works for my skintone is Instant Natural Glow and Instant Warm Glow – the third one is too light for me.
If you’re my skintone or deeper, try their bronzer called Maui Nights! It’s perfect for WOC (women of color). I love it cause it gives me a beautiful ‘sienna’ (reddish-brown) type flush on my cheeks, like I just came back from a cruise to the Bahamas. LOL!
It has a little shimmer (it’s not matte), but definitely not too much, making it very natural looking. The way I apply it is by placing it in a c-motion on my face, starting on the apples of my cheeks and sweeping up towards my temples. Beautiful!
Have you tried any of my favorites? Let me know! Part 2 of my favorites will be up later this way, so check back. 🙂
I received these products complimentary for testing in exchange for my honest review.
