Soooo, September is my birthday month, and I just happened to be running low on all my favorite makeup products. So I decided to take my happy self down to Sephora and get a few new products, and replace some of my long time favorites!
For skincare, I purchased Ole Henrikson “Balance It All”. This includes a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. This line is supposed to control oil, and refine pores for a matte, healthy looking complexion.
To help even my skin tone out, I bought my two favorite primers of all time. Peter Thomas Roth “SKIN TO DIE FOR”. This stuff is amazing, and is supposed to help reduce the appearance of pores over time. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the past few months of using it. The Porefessional Pore primer is amazing as well, but in my opinion delivers beautiful short term results, where PTR is definitely apart of my skin care regimen.
For foundation, I bought the same thing that I had which is Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear hydrating foundation. This is my holy grail foundation, and anyone that I show this to loves it also. It’s a beautiful, lightweight finish that definitely gets the job done and doesn’t make you feel dirty or even that you’re wearing anything! For concealer, I had been using Tarte ShapeTape, but since Sephora doesn’t carry it I decided to try something new.
This bottle of TooFaced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi Use Sculpting Concealer is huge! When I swatched it at the store, I could tell it was a winner. With raving reviews, I am super excited to try this out. I’ll be using the shade Snow.
Of course I had to stop at the Urban Decay section. The All Nighter setting spray has been a godsend! I hope the cooling and hydrating formula lives up to the standard. Also, the salesperson said that this powder is amazing also, which is the All Nighter waterproof setting powder.
Finally got my hands on some Champagne Pop by Becca… need I say more? And I am so excited to try this Sun Bunny compact from TooFaced. The swatches are amazing. Oh, and the packaging? 😍🤪
Moving on to eyes, I definitely switched it up a bit. I’ve had some major issues with smearing, and I’ve head positive reviews about the following. So I guess we shall give it a try!
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna- Flyliner In Cuz I’m Black
Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer
Buxom Lash Mascara In Blackest Black
Bad gal Bang by Benefit- this is a mascara I’ve purchased 3 times now. Hands down my favorite mascara of all time.
And of course, some Primer Potion from Urban Decay.
Let me know what type of products you guys enjoy using. I’ve gotten away from fads in makeup, and now I just use what I like but I am excited to try some new things. Happy early birthday to me!
