I made it! I went 30 days without buying any makeup products. This past weekend I was in the mood of treating myself. I went to Ulta because I needed to restock some items and I also wanted to try new products as well.
For months I have been wanting to try the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation. Foundation is something I can not purchase online I have to be able to do a match test in store. This product comes in 24 shades I am the shade golden and I love how it feels as if I have no makeup. It is buildable coverage and it works well with a beauty blender, they were actually sold out of the brush that you can purchase with the foundation. Retail price $14.
I just ran out of the NYC Loose Setting Powder that I purchased at Target so I was in dire need of a setting powder for my under-eye. My friend Chelsea whom is a free-lance makeup artist for Smashbox recommended I try Make-Up Revolution Luxury Powder as it is a dupe for the Ben-Nye Setting Powder. I love it , easy to wipe away, snatches the eye and doesn’t leave any flashback. Retail price $8.
The holy grail for eyebrows. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade chocolate. It has been a while since I used this product because it doesn’t last long. My ELF Cosmetics Brow Pencil broke so I had to restock. Retail price $21.
I always buy lipsticks and feel like they’re all the same shades. I have so many pinks and so many reds. I love NYX lipsticks and lip glosses for the price , quality and long-lasting. I picked up NYX Intense Butter Gloss in the shade Tres Leches. It’s moisturizing , doesn’t leave any residue between your lips. Retail price $5.99
NYX Photo-Loving Primer. This many not be for those with oily skin. I have combination skin, more drying around my T-zone. I’ve used this primer for quite some time. It’s moisturizing and shiny and a little goes a long way. Retail Price 12.99.
You all know I love Shea Moisture Hair Products. I knew they also had a makeup line but I did not know it was sold in Ulta Stores. I picked up their Concealer for both concealing and highlighting purposes. I picked up the shade almond. Retail price $11.99.
This is the final look using these products for a Saturday night out with the ladies.
