Ok ok I know I just posted I was saving money, but I went to my local drugstore and got too excited for these products and went ahead and purchased them. I only got 3 items but I’m still very happy.
On the left is the Smashbox Cover Shot: Softlight Palette ($35 CAD), and on the right is NYX total control foundation ($16 CAD) and Lingerie lip ($9 CAD).
Let’s start with the eyeshadow palette. I’m a big neutral girl, and as dark as I go is with brown tones. I saw this and thought it was perfect for me.
I feel like for $35, getting 8 shadows that are good quality and versatile are well worth it.
I think my favourites before even trying them will be – beach house, starlight and keeper.
I’ll do a look with this soon.
As for the NYX lingerie lip, I got the colour ‘pushup’. It’s very neutral for me and really compliments my skin tone right now. The NYX website describes it as: ” Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish. Available in a range of color-kissed nudes…each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy color.” Um, sounds amazing.
Last, but definitely not least the NYX foundation. I’m not sure the acutal name for the colour as I cannot find it on the box to save me, but its code is TCDF07 – I’m fairly light with a tan right now. So its a light beige roughly. The site description is: “From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with our new Total Control Drop Foundation! Fine-tune this velvety, matte foundation with the included dropper. Simply adjust the number of drops until you create the look you’re feelin’ today. Want more coverage? Add more drops! Buff expertly using the TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION BRUSH for a seriously smooth finish”.
I love that this gives me coverage options. It totally suits me, some days I want that #nomakeupmakeup look and some days I love my full coverage.
Overall I’m really excited to try these products out and do some looks with them. If you’ve tried any of them let me know what you think!
