Very late, but here’s my March Favourites! No fancy introductions here, just going to go straight to the point 🙂
° NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – This is on the more expensive end of products I use (and I don’t use expensive things often), but this is definitely worth the money. I mainly use this when I’m in a rush and want my face to be simple and awake. I apply the product under my eyes and on my lids just to even them out, and then I spot conceal to cover any hyper pigmentation. After that’s all blended in, I sweep some pressed powder over my face, add some mascara, do my brows, and I’m good to go.
The name says it all – this is suuuuuuch a creamy product. A little bit of this goes a long way, and it blends like a dream. I like that it comes with a doe foot applicator, so it is easy to apply the product. The lipgloss container-like packaging is nice looking, but in my opinion it gets in the way of getting the most product out. I think I would prefer a squeeze tube. I still like this though. The shade range is okay, though there aren’t too many colours for darker skinned people (there’s only 2 brown shades).
Overall I really like this concealer, and even though it’s on the pricer end for my budget, I think I’m going to get another one!
° Real Techniques Contour Brush from the Core Collection – I was using another brush to apply my contour until I remembered that I had this one. It leaves a really nice soft focus finish that helps everything apply and blend out very naturally and soft. I’ve actually been using this brush to apply my under eye concealer more so than for contouring since I like the finish it gives so much. I highly recommend this brush!
° NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi – This colour is so nice on darker skin. It’s a really nice pink/brown nude colour that’s neither too dark nor too ashy looking. The colour lasts for a very long time, and it applies very easily. The texture of these is kind of weird since it’s not really a cream in my opinion. It’s more of a mousse like product but it’s not fluffy. Regardless, it’s a wonderful product, and I foresee myself buying it in many more shades.
° L’oreal True Match Powder in (Warm) Creme Cafe – This product (but not this particular shade) has been my go to drugstore powder for a couple of years now. I like that there is a large range of shades for warm, cool, and neutral undertones, and for the most part I am always able to find a shade to suit me. This pressed powder never comes off cakey when I apply it, and it gives me a nice light-medium coverage depending on how much I put on. Aside from in extreme conditions (rain, excessive heat), the lasting power is pretty good. If you have skin that tends to get oily you may have to touch up a couple times during the day, but for the most part it lasts.
° VS Pink Wild & Breezy Body Mist – I. Love. This. Scent. It’s sweet, yet refreshing. I only really like clean scents and sweet ones, so this is a perfect mix to me. VS of course always has high prices for these things, but you can snag them in those 8/$33 sales and stuff.
That’s all for now!
