So adding on to yesterday’s post about my skincare favorites, I wanted to share some of my beauty/make up favorites from last month.
I started using the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. I’m a little picky about foundation and I usually only buy foundation after I am able to test it out. Since it’s a bit harder to do that with drugstore foundation, I don’t tend to buy it but after trying this out, I’m totally sold.
I love the cushion and how it distributes just the right amount of product. I don’t use the sponge that comes with it as I prefer to apply my foundation with a brush and I’m really happy with the consistency of the foundation and really just how easy it is to apply. I’m sure many of you are like me who have fussed with pumps or tubes of foundation where you end up getting too much or too little and so I really do love the control of the cushion and being able to get just the right amount of product. L’Oreal sent me a few colors to try out, so the N3.5 (Classic Buff) matches my skintone the best but the C5.5 (Perfect Beige) is also great, they both have a slight yellow undertone to it which matches my skin. N5.5 (Natural Tan) will be great to use during the summer when I have a bit more color to my face (or when I start to rely on my self tanner!) for some color!
OK so to say that I’ve been obsessed with matte lips is putting it mildly. I LOVE the look of bright matte lips lately so I’ve been using these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colors and they are just about the best lip colors that I’ve come across lately. Matte lipstick can sometimes go on really dry or heavy but these go on super smooth, dry matte and then stay on my lips all throughout the day. As you can see I love the bright colors because I figure if you are going to go matte, why not go bright too?
OK so sometimes I do still need a lipstick in my life and these Skinn
Plasma Fusion Full Pigment Lipstick is something that I’ve never seen before. The outer layer is the color and the inner core is full of good stuff like Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil which makes my lips super soft. It’s basically the ultimate in a lip balm/lipstick in one!
And my last favorite product is an essential to starting my makeup routine. I’ve always used a primer but I haven’t tried this one before but I really liked that it has Salicylic Acid in it to help when I have breakouts. But beyond that it really is a great primer.
