So, without further ado, these are a few things I've been loving lately.
EOS Lip Balm. This stuff is amazingly moisturizing, and smells wonderful. I use it every night before bed, and as a base for my lipsticks. And, I'm a sucker for innovative packaging.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I wanted a foundation primer because I have dry skin that tends to make makeup look a bit cakey. So I bought this, though it was a little pricey, and it makes a huge difference. Not only does it make my skin smooth and even, but it makes my foundation look dewy and it lasts all day long. My mom loves it too!
Urban Decay Baked Bronzer. This bronzer is great for the summer, and makes a wonderful all-over glow. I use a stippling brush to contour a bit and then dust it over where my skin would naturally catch some sun, like the apples of my cheeks and the tip of my nose. I'm very fair, and this is the perfect color.
*GIVEAWAY ALERT* Sigma E25 Travel Brush. Sigma Beauty sent me this travel blending eye brush to review, and I absolutely love it. I think I actually prefer the travel size to a full size, because the shorter brush allows for excellent control. I haven't had any hairs shed from it, and it blends out eyeshadows really well. I take it with me everywhere, but I even use it when I'm not traveling. To win one, leave a comment telling me your favorite summer beauty product. You have to be a follower of this blog to qualify. Giveaway closes July 10. Good luck!
Too Faced Cosmetics also sent me a product to review. They were very kind and easy to work with, and even threw in a handwritten note with my item. They sent me the Romantic Eye Palette, and I love it! It's perfect for beginners because it comes with cards that give you ideas on how to use each color, but it's also really fun for people who've been doing makeup for a while. The shadows are very pigmented and blend-able, and the colors are gorgeous and very natural.
That's it for today! I hope you enjoyed it. I also want to go ahead and say that unless I say so, I bought the products myself, and any reviews I give you will be completely honest. I wouldn't accept a product if I was being told to give a positive review; I genuinely want you to have a good idea of the product before you go out and spend good money one it.
Have a great day!
