So I recently took a trip…or more like 3…to a couple of my favorite cosmetics stores.I picked up a couple new products from Sephora and one from Macy’s that each add a breath of fresh air to my summer makeup collection!
I purchased the majority of the new items from Sephora. I only picked up a couple items and I had to stop myself from draining my bank account on makeup. The first product I picked up was the Anastasia Beverly Hills duo angle and spooly brush. I have been majorly neglecting my eyebrows lately, so I decided it was about time I splurge on them a little bit. In addition to helping my brows stay on fleek, the angled brush also works great for applying eyeliner. I bought this brush from Sephora for $18.
I also picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Pencil. Someone recommended this product to me because it is great for multiple purposes. Apparently it works as a concealer, highlighter and even an eye shadow base! I personally invested in this pencil because I am addicted to dark lipsticks and I tend to make a mess. This pencil works great to clean up the edges to create the perfect bold lip. This pencil was $20 at Sephora. Fingers crossed that I never have accidental clown lips again!
The last product I picked up was the Better Than Sex mascara by Two Faced. I know I’m super late to the party with this one, but I don’t purchase mascaras very often. I’ve been using the Benefit They’re Real for about a year now and it’s nice for natural looking lashes, but I generally prefer dramatic makeup looks. I already love Better Than Sex because it truly does create that drama I’ve trying to create with other products. It does get a little bit clumping, but by layering this mascara with a different one with a smaller, lighter brush, eyelashes don’t clump quite as much.
So that’s all that I picked up from Sephora, but I had to stop by Macy’s to pick up one last product. I also purchased another liquid lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I got the shade Sad Girl in the past, and it’s my absolute favorite lipstick ever! But with Summer time the shade is a tad too dark, so this time I bought the shade Neon Coral. I’m definitely not used to buying something so bright and orangey pink. I’m typically attracted to darker colors, but I think this lipstick is a great summer color. Although I think I’m a tad bit too pale for it right now, I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of this shade all summer long.
So that’s it for my recent cosmetic purchases, but it’s definitely not all that I bought recently! I also took several trips to the mall and bought a ton of clothing and accessories. Clothing Haul coming soon!
