Hi everyone! So today I received a couple items from Sephora that I have been looking forward to trying for some time. I've tried them out and so far they are very impressive especially for summer. All of the items I bought are perfect for work because they are supposed to last all day but I haven't tested their durability yet. I'm trying to find products that will last during my long days of nursing clinicals and withstand all the hardwork many women do at home or on the job ♥ When I test out how long they actually last I will definitely do an update. Before we get into the makeup I'd like to introduce my two shopping helpers
Now on to the goods!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #13 Warm Beige
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Doll Face
Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette
This palette is exactly what I have been looking for. It is the lighter version of the Naked palette from Urban Decay which I absolutely love. All of the shades are very versatile and extremely pigmented. I love how there is a nice mix of matte and satin shadows. The colors are all work appropriate. Flirt is the only shadow that is very glittery and would cause fall out. Of course this is a great palette for summer but it is definitely wearable all year round. So many looks can come from this palette. The problem is that you may find you have dupes to some of these colors but for those of us who have just found a love of makeup most of these shades are a must have. It is great for people who love neutral and romantic looks. The liners are creamy and go on smoothly. It comes with the Photo Finish Lid primer and a great eye liner brush as added bonuses (I don't care for the shadow side of the dual ended brush). Look cards are included and you can also find the video tutorials from Smashbox on YouTube. One concern about this palette is that the cream liners may dry out after a while because they are not sealed. It is a limited edition palette so if this suits your fancy I would recommend getting one before summer's over. It retails for $48 at Sephora and Ulta.
Please let me know if you have any questions and have a great day ♥
