What's up beauty babes? First off, I would like to apologize because I feel like I haven't really been working on my blog that much lately - I think that I may have a future post lined up sort of explaining what kind of place I am in personally at the moment, so do leave a comment if you'd be interested in a post about anxiety and some other personal bits that I may think of sharing with you...Anyways, on to my favorite products of my summer thus far. All of these have been really hyped up with loads of promo prior to their release and then loads of blogposts, YouTube videos and reviews, etc. so I am well sure that you may be completely tired of hearing people like myself rambling on about these products so I do apologize if this post is repetitive for you, but I do tend to wait until hype has died down because I am quite hesitant to buy into hyped up products but alas, I have jumped on the beauty bandwagon AND BOY AM I GLAD I DID.
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette My goodness gracianious I just love this palette - first of all, the packaging in gorgeous and includes a satisfying magnetic close, a good sized mirror, and nine beautiful shades within. By now you must know that I am an absolute sucker for neutral, natural colors and these are just so gorgeous. I can't remember whose blog/channel I saw this on first but the second I saw it I knew I had to give it a go. The names of the shadows are quite saucy if ya know what I mean - 'Sexpresso' and 'Erotica' among them. It seems that Too Faced has a knack for sexy names like their 'Better Than Sex' mascara, but oh well. The shadows are all super pigmented and easy to wear. I must say I love 'Push Up' (there we go again, heheh), 'Silk Teddy' and 'Honey Pot.' I have used this constantly since I purchased and I am so in love.
Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette (Streak) Oh yes, baby, oh yes. I was a bit hesitant to buy this, just because I wasn't sure how the pale matte bronzer would suit me but I am very pleased with it - the bronzer shade is very light and subtle so it just adds a little bit of life to my usually pale face. The highlighter shade is a gorgeous pinky shimmer and the blush is amazeballs as well. It's a perfect little face palette and it's small/slim packaging makes it perfect for travel.
Benefit They're Real! Push Up Liner Now this one has caused quite the controversy - ever since it's hugely anticipated arrival it has stirred up a LOT of talk. Either you love it, or you hate it. I will be honest it is not the easiest to use at the start - the first time I tried using it I got a lot of flakiness and it just wasn't working out. It definitely requires a bit of dedicated practice but I've gotten to the point where I can just glide this on for a perfect cat eye flick. I am sure you've all heard this before but it has a flexible little rubber nib that the product comes out of with a click of the pen, it is meant to hug your lashes for easy access to the lash line and it is a lovely gel (matte?) formula. It stays on all day and doesn't budge at all which makes it an absolute pain to remove, but over all I am absolutely loving it.
