Wow I haven´t done a beauty post in a long time but to be honest there hasn´t been much that caught my eye the last two months. I almost exlusively stocked up on things I have already owned and other than that I didn´t need anything.
But times and needs are changing and after browsing the beauty websites I was finally in the mood for new things. I also have a bunch of things on my current wishlist plus I had been to Sephora this week and got some new goodies.
What´s new in my beauty cabinet ?
NARS matte lipstick // My first NARS lipstick ever and I went for the color Rouge Insolent. It is quite the bright red and perfect for Summer or to brighten up your look. I would say the color is very similar to MAC Lady Danger. The lipstick has a matte texture and to be honest I liked it right away.
MAC Ruby Woo lipstick and liner // I have a ton of red lipsticks but after years of reading what a classic red MAC Ruby Woo is and how gorgeous is looks on every skin type plus it makes your teeth look whiter cause it´s got a blue undertone I finally caved and got it. It has become a quick favorite of mine and I love that the liner is the absolute same color than the lipstick.
Too Faced Tutti Frutti blush // I got the papaya flavor and the blush is so cool. I never had anything from Too Faced so this darling blush was a cute surprise. It smells awesome – like a fresh bowl of fruit plus the packaging looks so luxe and colorful. All of their products are created with such an eye for detail. This definitely wasn´t my last piece of their brand. The blush contains a beautiful corally shade and a golden bronzer. You can mix it together or apply it single, both looks great.
elf Illuminating Mist and Set spray // My local drug store finally carries elf products and I couldn´t be happier. The brand has definitely improved over the last couple years. I was so happy I got a bunch of things but haven´t tried everything yet which is why I am only sharing two different prodcuts with you today. I have used the face mist several times over my finished make-up to set it and I really liked it. In my opinion my skin stayed matte a lot longer than usual which is great for hot days plus it doesn´t smell gross and it is super affordable for under 10 Euro.
elf Liquid Matte Lipstick // Lip products are my favorite make-up article but I am sure by reading my blog you already know that. So no wonder I had to try the liquid lipsticks from elf. I have been into liquid lipsticks but sometimes I tend to dry out my lips and then the color cracks and it looks really trahsy. I hate when this happens. The elf Liquid Matte Lipstick holds up really well and doesn´t dry my lips at all. I have used it with and without a primer and it was fine either way. The colors are highly pigmented and the price is great for the prodcut. I got color Mauvelous -a matte rosewood with a purply finish and Praline – a dark nude great for Fall.
Face sponge // I recently found these little face sponges and have been using them religiously in my evening routine. I love the soft feel on my skin and they take of everything in combination with my cleansing balm plus they have a scrubing effect to take of dead skin cells. You can wash them and reuse the sponges.
Bath & Body Works body cream and body scrub // This set was given to me by one of my best friends and let me tell you the smell is amazing. The scent is a mixture of eucalyptus and spearmint and stays on your skin for a long time plus it has a great calming effect. Perfect if you are having a migraine or a headache.
I really missed writting this kind of post for you and this seems to be a real good one as all of the products I got were great hits.
Be sure to check back at the end of September when I am reviewing my Sephora buys.
