Spring Makeup Must Haves (Brown Girl Friendly)

Hello all!

I needed to get myself another powder since my Sephora Microsmooth Face Powder hit pan, so I went to the drugstore. However, we all know there was no way I was leaving without at least one (or two…or three) other items!


>.< This wasn’t supposed to come out sideways. Anyway, from left to right (or bottom to top): Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Medium Deep, E.L.F Baked Eyeshadow in Enchanted, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London, and L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder in Warm 8 Creme Cafe

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream: I’m trying to get more into the whole BB Cream thing since I like products that even out my skin, but I don’t need a lot of coverage. This will only be my second time trying one (my first was the Black Radiance BB Cream which I still have to review), but I’ve heard mixed reviews about this, especially when it comes to the wear time, but I’ll see about this. My main worry is the oiliness complaint, but I’ll see how that holds up against setting powder and setting spray. My motivation for purchasing this was one of my favourite Youtubers, Lauren Ross. She uses it pretty frequently and her makeup always looks amazing.

E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadow in Enchanted: I think I’m pretty good in the neutral/gold/bronze eyeshadow department for now, so I don’t intend to use this for that purpose. I do think that this will make a beautiful highlighter, especially if you’re someone like me with a deeper complexion.


TOP TO BOTTOM: E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadow in Enchanted, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London, Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Medium/Deep

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London: I love NYX lip products, especially the soft matte lip creams. I’m not a huge lipstick or lipgloss wearer, and I love the matte look, so these are everything to me. I picked up this one in London looking for another nude colour, but one that was more on the lighter pinky brown side, but this turned out to be close to Abu Dhabi upon swatching. They’re still a little different though, so I’ll keep it. I’ll address that in a different post.

L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder in Warm 8, Creme Cafe: I’ve purchased about 3 of these before, and this one in particular once before. I’m a big fan of these, especially because I feel that they have a pretty good shade range especially for women with darker skin tones (they go really dark, not that caramel is the deepest shade crap).

That’s all for now! Have any of you tried any of these? Comment below 🙂
