Makeup Geek Blushes!

Makeup Geek recently came out with a reformulation of their blushes and added some new colors to the collection.

Blush-Launch-Category-Header-Pans-2

 

I have two shades from the first launch and I thought they were pretty good, but the formula on the new ones are much more creamy and pigmented.  And that is saying a lot because the old formula was pretty dang good!

Love Letter—¬†Love Letter is a dusty mauve with a matte finish

Xoxo–XOXO is a watermelon pink with a matte finish

Blind Date—¬†Blind Date is a cantaloupe pink with a matte finish

Romance–Romance is a peachy coral with a golden shimmery finish

These blushes are super pigmented!!! And the formula is like butter, so smooth and creamy for a powder.

These are the two blushes I have of the old formula (which is still a good formula!)

Spell Bound—¬†Spell Bound is a light salmon with a matte finish

Love Affair— Love Affair is an intense pink coral with a matte finish

June 2016 Favorites

For some reason I’ve gotten away from doing monthly favorites and I want to get back!

Clinique Long Last Lipstick in All Heart — $17.00

 

This is a red coral and it has been living in my purse for the past month.  It feels very soft and smooth and it wears really well!

Lush Tea Tree Water Toner– $22.95

This is a good to for summer and I forgot how much I loved it! ¬†I like to mist this on my face in the morning before I put on my makeup and sometimes throughout the day too. ¬†It is not a makeup extending or setting spray but ¬†I don’t find that it messes up my make up if I spray it on top.

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm– $12.00

First off this smells amazing! It has a fresh citrus scent and is very thick in texture.  I had neglected to exfoliate my lips for a few weeks and my skin was more dry due to my acne medications and my lips were looking rough!  I used this at night and after 3 nights my lips were in great shape!

Makeup Geek Blush in Spell BoundР$10.00 

This is the old formula but I still love it! ¬†The color is a salmon pink and finish is matte. The pigmentation is great for these blushes and you can’t beat the price.

benefit Erase Paste Brightening Concealer in Fair– $26.00

I have almost hit pan on this jar!  I like the consistency of this concealer as it is thick (so it has good coverage) but it is also very creamy and easy to blend.  I do have to make sure I set it with a powder but it lasts all day and does a great job of covering up the darkness under and in the corner of my eyes.

Soap and Glory  The Scrub of Your LifeР$12.00 

This is a good scrub if you are looking for something that isn’t too harsh. ¬†The scent is light and a combination of floral and citrus. ¬†You can pick this up in the US at Ulta!

Marc Jacobs Dot Perfume–$96.00¬†

I think I only wore this scent for a solid week in June.  It has a nice combination of floral and fruity that I love.  The notes are Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom, Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk.  On me I feel like the musk, Jasmine and Vanilla really come through and it has a nice lingering scent.

BH Cosmetics Pride+Prejudice+Zombies Eye and Cheek Palette– $12.50

This has been my go to this past month. The variety of colors and finish is awesome and the staying power is pretty good as well. ¬†The formula can be a little powdery and some of the colors do take a bit to build up but you can’t be the price! I also really love the shimmer blush that is in the palette. ¬†It reminds me a bit of Orgasm by Nars… I’m now going to do a swatch test lol ūüôā

LOC One & Done Shadow Sticks in On Point and Day TripР$10.00 Each 

I like to use these shadow sticks as a base for other eye shadows.  I find that for me they are not enough on their own.  I do have oily eyelids so I find that all day wear with these will leave me with some creasing or they will just straight up disappear from my eyelid. But, they do make a great base and they work well with the BH Cosmetics palette as some of the shadows are not as pigmented and the base color really helps to bring out the best in the shadow stick and the powder eye shadow set the cream.  All in all its a win win!

Products I’ve Hit Pan On: ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in Never Been Kissed

IMG_1913

Another ColourPop product I’ve hit pan on! ¬†This is a beautiful color and I love the formula of the brands blushes.

IMG_1915

 

I loved it so much I have rubbed¬†off the logo on the lid! ¬†I like to apply this blush with a stippling brush. ¬†Either the one from e.l.f¬†¬†or the Sigma F50 Duo Fiber Stippling Brush. ¬†Really I reach for whichever one is the cleanest….

I know its a little teeny tiny sliver of the bottom of the container but I’m so proud that I was able to get through!

IMG_1914

As you can see the color is beautiful Coral Pink that is matte. ¬†This was a part of the 90’s collection that came out last summer and as the writing of this blog post is still¬†up for purchase on the ColourPop website. ¬†Check out the website to see pictures of this blush on different skin tones. ¬†I love that ColourPop does that as its nice to see a variety of skin tones represented.

Face of the Day with Naked 3

While I was laying in bed last night I was thinking about how I was going to do my makeup the next day (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this…. ) and thought to myself “I haven’t used the Naked 3 in a long time I’ll use that! ” Well… I was really planning on doing something adventurous but I woke up late and while I did end up using the Naked 3 I did a simple look.
