Hello love bugs!!

Over the past two weeks I have been shopping a bit in Sephora, Macy’s and some online stores. And it was that time of my life where I need to throw out the old makeup and buy new stuff! This time I wanted to chose right and use them well. I will explain what I look for in a product, the products that I finally decided to buy and how well did they work for me.

  1. The POREfessional primer by benefit cosmetics.

I have huge pore issues in my T-zone! I was looking out for a pore erasing primer and chose this. This luxury primer is a life saver. It fills into my pores and gives a flawless base for the foundation. It blurred out my skin and held the makeup well. Highly recommend this one

2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Shades: Barcelona and Syracuse.

When it comes to foundation, I would like medium to buidable full coverage, natural glow and radiant finish. I don’t like heavy and matte foundations. After a huge research, I finally settled on the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. I bought two shades Barcelona and Syracuse, the second shade was for my mum. Barcelona is the perfect match for me, it’s my skin in a bottle. It gives me a medium, glow-y, lightweight and natural looking skin. It lasts an entire day without any touch-ups. I wore this, went on a full day trip to San Fransisco on a sunny day and came back with foundation in place. I love this foundation. My mom uses foundation more often than I do and she said she loved this product as well. It was completely worth splurging on this product.

3. Urban Decay All nighter concealer- Shade Medium Dark Warm

I fell flat-out for this tube’s packaging! Look how beautiful is that tube of concealer. Looks and feels super luxurious. Their all-nighter foundation has the same packaging. Anyway, at the end of the day it’s about what is inside that pretty tube. I wore this concealer under my eyes, orbital bones, bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow and a little on my chin. I had it for about 11 hours and it stayed put. It blends out really well and does NOT crease AT ALL. This shade is a perfect match for me. It didn’t turn my dark circles grey. That’s all I look for in a concealer.

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Bronzer – Shade:  SADDLE

I feel everyone should bronze their face, especially after a foundation, to bring back some color and structure to the face. I found this beautiful matte bronzer from Anastasia Beverly hills. It’s a really beautiful bronzer for my skin tone.

5. NYX Matte Setting Spray and NYX EyeShadow Base Shade: Skin tone Nude

NYX Setting spray helped me control the oil in my T-zone. The eyeshadow base is exactly my skin tone and gives a beautiful clean slate for Eyeshadow application.

6. Lipsticks:

I bought some lipsticks and gave a couple of them to my sister. Most of them are nudes, I went a little crazy with the one from Anastasia Beverly Hills – Madison which is vibrant magenta color.

MAC lipstick shade : Velvet Teddy. Kat Von D Shade: Double Dare.

Huda Beauty Shade: BombShell. Anastasia Beverly Hills Shades : Madison and Bitter Sweet.

Kat Von D is my favorite of the lot!

7. Makeup Revolution I ❤️ makeup – Rose Gold Chocolate palette

This is supposed to be a dupe of Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I used it few times and I love this palette. It is exactly a dupe for Huda’s palette except it doesn’t have black color in it. If you want the Huda palette but you don’t to spend a lot, look no more!

I bought it here

People in USA can buy it here

That’s it for my Makeup haul. I love all of the products so far, they work amazingly well for me.

Good Vibes 🙂

Ranjani 🙂
