I know it may seem like brown girls don’t need bronzer, but I am here to tell you that we do! I’m using “need” loosely, but I personally feel like bronzers really help complete any look. If you wear foundation (especially medium to full coverage), bronzers help add that dimension and warmth back to your face so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing a mask. If you want to the bronzers that have been in heavy rotation for the past few months, keep reading!
NARS has been one of my favorite brands for awhile now, so when I saw that they were coming out with new liquid lipsticks (finally!), I had to try them! The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments launched a little over a month ago with 20 shades ranging from nudes to black! There were so many colors that I wanted to try, but I narrowed it down to 5. If you want to know what I thought of them, keep reading!
One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.
If you regularly keep up with the beauty blogs, you may have heard about the new Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes that Hourglass released. These beautiful palettes are now available in 7 varieties and I decided to try out the Obscura version. I haven’t had a chance to play around with this palette yet, but I know this will be a hot item, so I wanted to get out some swatches for you in case you’re interested in ordering.
NARS recently released a huge line of lipsticks with a brand new formulation that has been getting a lot of buzz in the beauty community. This range boasts 40 shades that promise long lasting, full impact color all while giving a luxurious feel to the lips. Sounds great, but for $32 each, are they worth it? I purchased 3 shades to test out so that I could let you know!
Although it’s the end of summer, I still wanted to get this post done for those of you who like to glow year round like I do! To date, my highlighter post from last year is one of my most popular posts on this blog, so I figured you all would like to see an updated one. Today’s Fab 5 will feature my favorite 5 (ish) highlighters right now! If you want to hear me ramble about them, check out the video below! Keep scrolling below that if you want to see swatches of all the highlighters mentioned!
In my last haul video, I mentioned two Tom Ford blushes that I picked up, Flush & Savage. I had a gift card to use so I figured I might as well splurge! Plus I’ve heard nothing but good things about Tom Ford makeup, so I was excited to finally try some. If you’re interested in swatches and my thoughts on them, keep reading!
