Hi lovelies! Today I’m coming at you with a monthly product review post! Keep reading to find out what my opinion is on these items!
NYX LAVENDER CC CREAM: MAYBE?
First up is the NYX lavender CC cream! I bought this a couple months ago (which you can see in this haul!) to test out amidst the whole color-correcting craze. It’s a light lavender shade which is supposed to cancel yellow tones and brighten the skin.
I tested it out when I first got it and I felt like it made my skin oily, but I wanted to give it a fair test by trying it out a few more times. The only problem was that since it was an extra step in my makeup routine, I would usually forget about it and not reach for it.
But since it’s summer, I wanted to try wearing it more often to see if it would make my makeup base routine a bit lighter. Unfortunately, I think it still delivers the same results.
When I first tested it, I would go to work in an office area so it was always cool indoors and I would get oily. Now that it’s summer, I’ve tested it in 90-100+ degree heat and it’s even more noticeable. I feel like it makes my skin quite sticky and I’m not sure if it color-corrects my skin.
I will continue to use it on shorter days and on days when I want to do lighter makeup, but I’m not sure if I love it. Once I’ve made up my mind, I’ll probably do an in-depth review of it!
MAYBELLINE EYESTUDIO IN COPPER CHIC: YES!
I’ve been into pinky shadows for a couple months now. I’m pretty sure it’s a trend right now because I’ve seen a lot of people wearing warm pink shadows on the eyes. I’ve also been enjoying the bronze shade when I want to add some smokiness to the eyes for a daytime look without using dark brown and black shades.
I personally enjoy the Maybelline Eyestudio colors; I currently own 3 of their quads now and I think they’re super pigmented while also having a good amount of shimmer in them without being glittery. The only downside is that they don’t have matte shades, but the pigment makes up for it!
ORLY BONDER BASE COAT: YES!
I’ve never been one to do my nails very often, but I’ve started to put more effort into them lately. I couldn’t do my nails in my third year of college because of work, but when I was able to start up again, I started noticing that my nail polish wasn’t staying on very well because I was using my top coat as a base coat.
I finally gave in and tried this base coat and I love it! I think it definitely plays a big part in making my nail polish last longer.
L’OREAL INFALLIBLE PRO SETTING SPRAY: MAYBE?
I bought this because I heard it was similar to Urban Decay’s All Nighter spray since L’Oreal is the parent company. I used this up pretty quickly and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’ve since purchased the full-size bottle to give it another chance and I’ll probably do a review on this in the future as well to update my opinion on it. So far, I will say the full-size bottle has a better nozzle so the mist is a bit finer.
Overall, I do notice a difference when I do and don’t use it so I do think it works to an extent, but I am open to other setting sprays and I’m testing out more primers as well!
So that wraps it up for this month’s product review! I hope this was helpful; let me know your thoughts in the comments below and also leave some product recommendations so I can try them! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you lovelies tomorrow!
