I recently bought this travel makeup bag from Target and I love it (partially because its blue). It has 2 see-through compartments that are held together with snaps so you can open it and see what’s inside without unzipping them. I also like the size and design.
I finally bought the Maybelline Fit Me foundation to try out. So far, 128 Warm Nude is the best color match I’ve found although it’s not perfect and it doesn’t keep me matte all day, but it’s not bad. I might do a review on this foundation, so be on the lookout for that!
I tried out the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner and it’s actually really good. I bought the darkest shade called Perversion and this liner hardly budges. My only problem is that I messed up the pencil when I sharpened it. I then read somewhere that this eyeliner requires a specific sharpener from Ulta/Sephora, so if you’re looking to buy this liner, that might be something to keep in mind. I’ve had to stop using it for now until I find that sharpener because my liner doesn’t make a clean line anymore.
I’m also trialing the travel size version of the famous Urban Decay All Nighter spray. I’ve almost finished it and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. My makeup still gets shiny, but it does seem to hold my makeup together better. For example, my foundation doesn’t seem to separate as much as it usually does. I wish it kept me matte all day, but I’m not sure if that’ll ever be possible for my skin.
This is a NYX soft matte lip cream in Antwerp. It looked okay in the packaging but the color is actually a lot brighter than I expected. However, it surprisingly compliments my skin tone and I might end up wearing it often since it’s a really nice summer color.
So this shade is actually my MLBB (my lips but better) color. I didn’t expect that because it is quite pink, but it looks really natural on my lips, just a little pinker. But after a while, it hardly looks like I’m wearing a lip color besides the fact that it’s matte. This is in the shade Cannes and I’ve just really been enjoying the formula of these lip creams.
This is a Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 104. I bought this on a whim because it looked like a nice shade. Swatched, it looks like a pinky nude, but on my lips, it actually comes out quite pink. I’m still testing it because I don’t think it works that well with my skin tone, but I’m sure I can use a lip liner to adjust the color.
This is a Maybelline quad called Taupe Temptress. I finally bought this after contemplating on it for months. I’ve been really into pink shades on my lids because I think they look nice with brown eyes and the taupe color is also enticing.
It’s like an never-ending lipstick haul, haha.
This is Stormy Sahara with a satin finish. It’s my first attempt at a brownish nude lipstick and I didn’t realize how nude shades can potentially wash you out. This shade is probably not right for me since it looks strange with my skin tone, but I plan on using berry or pink-colored lip liners when I wear it to adjust the color.
This is Clay Crush in the matte formula. It looks very similar to Stormy Sahara, but it’s more matte and is a bit more brown. I’m not sure if this shade looks good on me, but I don’t think it’s too bad.
This is one of my current favorite shades. It’s called Touch of Spice in the matte finish. It’s a little dark for the daytime but I still love wearing it almost daily. It’s basically a darker pink with a hint of mauve.
This is Untainted Spice with a satin formula. It’s a brown lipstick that isn’t completely opaque. I think this is wearable for daytime and nighttime. Since it’s a little sheer, it’s not too strong so I think you can pull it off during the day.
This is currently the darkest lipstick I own. It’s called Burgundy Blush with a matte finish. On camera, it comes out as a dark berry red but in real life, I would say it’s much darker with more brown tones. This is really out of my comfort zone but its been fun to play with sometimes, especially for nighttime looks.
So that’s the final part of my collective haul; I hope you makeup lovers enjoyed this haul! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you lovelies soon!
