Over New Year's weekend I decluttered the stash of makeup I was hoarding and threw out old items, gave away some items and tried to use what I had before buying anything new. Operative word being 'try'. Basically I made space for new makeup... I can't help it!
After trying the BECCA Radiant Glow Collection(review here), I have become obsessed with their highlighters and just had to try the super popular, usually sold-out BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. This gorgeous gold highlight makes my cheeks just pop, reflecting the light perfectly and giving a very pretty glow. The formula is incredibly smooth and soft with a creamy-like quality although it is a powder. While I think this shade is so pretty, I actually think Moonstone looks better on my skin tone-- still a winner though!
Another product that I was super curious about is the BECCA Brow Contour Mousse, which is a brow definer and highlight duo in one. The mousse applies easily, with just the perfect amount of color and helps my brows stay in place. The contour mousse is great for those with full brows, however I'm not sure if I would recommend it for anyone who needs to greatly fill in their brows. The second part of the duo is a highlight that you can apply to your brow bone and even above the brow to help define and highlight the brows.
I had received theIT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Creme Blushfrom an event last year but forgot about until I cleaned out all my makeup and came across it. I'm a huge fan of cream blushes as they tend to blend into the skin nicer to give a more natural-looking flush than powder. This one is no exception, it applies easily, blends amazingly and the color is so pretty!
This week I received Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Beetroot, which is a vibrant deep berry shade that I am now borderline obsessed with. Not only is the color gorgeous & vibrant, but these lipsticks are super creamy. The Amuse Bouche Lipsticks are all handcrafted in small batches (are we talking beer or lipstick here??) and include 12 oils and super saturated pigments to give that bold color and help to hydrate lips while wearing. Stay tuned for a closer look at these gorgeous lipsticks soon.
I also picked out this multifunctional makeup brush holder on Amazon... for under $15! This case is amazing, it has room for all my different types of brushes-- powder, concealer, blush, eye shadow, you name it, it fits in here. The holder includes slots that keep the brushes in place and there's a mesh zippered pouch in the middle to hold any odd-sized brushes. Makeup brush organization and it's finest.
