Hello and happy Sunday. I think besides the unboxings I’ve been doing, I haven’t really shown you any new makeup I’ve gotten because up until a couple of years ago I hadn’t bought any. I decided that it’d be better if I stopped buying makeup until I moved, and I was sticking to that decision until I realized I was running out of a few essentials. I got them, and I’ve had a chance to try them now for a while, so today I’m sharing my thoughts with you. Let’s get started, shall we?
I’ve been loving this and I recommend it 100% whether you’re going for a natural look or you want full glam. I apply this with a foundation brush, and it’s absolutely amazing how it sort of absorbs into the skin, leaving it visibly ready for makeup, like you can actually see the texture getting even. I think this is my new go-to primer now.
I was in need of a foundation for everyday because I was getting kinda tired of the stick one I have. I’m pretty sure my purchase of this particular CC Cream was influenced by Tati, as well as the next three products in this haul. I really like the texture of this, and I think it does a wonderful job at leaving the skin looking “naturally” healthy. It kinda smells like oats, but in a good way, like it feels nice to know that I’m putting only good things on my face. I apply it with a beauty sponge, and I like the finish. Two things I’d keep in mind, though, are: 1) apply a small amount, and 2) this oxidizes, so it will turn slightly darker.
Of course, I wasn’t just going to buy the one CC Cream, so I got this foundation and I am seriously amazed at how well it performs given its low cost. If you’re looking to get a nice, matte finish, then you have to try this. The only problem I have with it is the fact that I made the mistake of getting a shade that is too light for my skin tone, given that I recently got a tan, but other than that I’m loving it.
This is the first loose powder I’ve owned, and so far I really prefer this for baking than my pressed powders. There are days when I still spill some powder on my pants, or make a mess wherever I’m applying my makeup, but I’m getting the hang of it. I use a brush and not the puffy thing the powder comes with because I like to focus on applying it to smaller areas of my face. I’ll be honest, though, I had to get used to the scent because still to this day when I apply it, I feel like my great aunt. If smelling like an old lady is not a problem for you, then you will absolutely adore this powder.
That’s pretty much all the makeup I’ve bought this year. Crazy, huh? In the comments below, tell me which of these products you’d like to try and why.
Love, Miss Camila
