I’m back again with some products I have been trying out. Some I would repurchase and others I can definitely pass on.
Smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Hydrating
Benefits: Oil-free and applies light on the skin. Works great in the winter months or whenever your skin is dry.
Repurchase: Yes, however, I liked to purchase this during the Sephora VIB sale and now that they no longer sell it I’m not willing to spend $42 on it. I will be on the search for something similar. Who knew this last purchase I made this summer would be my last…I need to hide this from myself so it will last longer.
NARS – Velvet Matte Foundation Stick – Macao (Med/Dark)
Benefits: Matte finish and perfect for daily wear to work. This foundation is light enough to apply for work every day and is gentle on sensitive skin.
Repurchase: Yes annnd No. I would purchase this brand and shade again but in the liquid version. I felt there was not enough product for the price and the touch-up blender on the opposite can be replaced with more foundation.
From a hygiene view, I didn’t think the touch-up blender was good to keep using over and over on the skin on a daily. I think the shade match was excellent and because of that, I will purchase the liquid in the future.
NARS – Audacious Mascara: Black Moon
Benefits: Great at separating lashes
Repurchase: I can’t remember if I liked this mascara enough to repurchase… I should keep better notes. I do know that it did a great job at separating my lashes but I can’t remember if I liked the finishing. I’m not going to put in my repurchase pile but I”ll keep my eyes and ears open of anyone recommending it.
Benefit – They’re Real Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara: Black
Benefits: A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for an “out-of-here” look. This mascara leaves the most natural finish on your lashes. I use this mascara EVERY SINGLE DAY to work. Sometimes I’ll apply another mascara and then apply this on top to give it a natural finish.
Repurchase: Yes, yes and yes. I keep a tube of this mascara always.
NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream: Stockholm
Benefits: applies creamy and dries down to a matte finish but doesn’t leave the lips appearing dry. I like this color as an everyday color paired with a brown lip liner.
Repurchase: Yes. I have already repurchased for my makeup collection.
Philosophy – Pure Grace Rollerball
Use: Weekly; I could wear it every day
Bergamot, Water Lily, Lavender, Jasmine, Cool Greens, Musk.
Pure. Crisp. Clean.
Repurchase: Yes. I’m going to put it on my Christmas or birthday list in the future.
