Hello Beautifuls! I’m in Florida and I guess you can say I’m finally rested and up to writing a blog. We got here about three weeks ago, and in those weeks I have really been getting my shopping and eating on. On top of my “treat yo self” attitude, My baby brothers have been spoiling us too. They are the cutest!
I’ll be sharing the new makeup I’ve gotten today. I’ll do another post of the clothes and accessories! Yes, they have to be divided into two. I’m telling ya, my “treat yo self” motto has been going hard here. Since, I’ve slowly been purchasing these item, I didn’t notice how much I’ve accumulated until now. Good thing I didn’t bring that much makeup with me this time.
Only one of the products I bought was a replacement and that was the tarte shapetape concealer. That is my ride or die concealer. I’ve been using it for quite some time now. If you haven’t given it a try I suggest y’all head to an Ulta and give it a go.
Besides the tarte shapetape, I also purchased a tarte primer, this is the first time I’m trying this primer and so far I love it. I hate the super matte, dry makeup look and about all the primers I’ve had before do just that. Since, it’s summer I wanted a more glowy look and the tarte base tape is a hydrating primer and it gives me a great moisturizing feel and leaves my skin glowing. It’s a new fav for sure.
Another primer I got to give it a try is more on the affordable side. It’s the infamous elf poreless putty primer, it is told that it’s a dupe for the more high end tatcha silk canvas primer. Which is another primer I wanted to test out but, didn’t really want to spend fifty something dollars on it. This dupe is only $8 and you can’t beat that. According, to Jeffree Star it’s does the same job as the tatcha one. I haven’t been able to give it a try since I’m so attached to the tarte one. But, I’ll give it a try and give an update.
Moving onto some foundations. Both are new products and had launched while I was here. I was so excited to get to try these ASAP, being in Japan we don’t really have access to new products. I’ve tried both and they are amazeballs!!!
The Juvias Place is one that took the makeup industry by storm. It’s so full coverage a small dot goes such a long way. Like holy cow! The price is the cherry on top, it’s only $20, like it can’t get any better than that!
The second foundation is the hello happy from benefit. This is not as thick or full coverage as the previous foundation but, it gives me the coverage I need and it gives me the glowy look I want. It’s perfect for this hot weather in Florida. I’ve been using this foundation the most since I got it and the packaging is the cutest.
This product is a powder foundation, I took the recommendation from one of my favorite YouTuber, Nicole Guerriero. She wasn’t playing with this one!!! If you don’t like to put in the time to blend out or you just simply don’t have time, this is the makeup forever powder for you! It’s like no other powder I’ve tried before. It’s blurring and the coverage is out of this world. It’s a definite favorite for me and will always be.
I also picked up another makeup forever product, one of my favorite blushes fell and broke into dust. Tragic! So I had to get another blush. This blush is so pretty and a little goes along way. Like I have to be careful or I’ll end up looking like a clown in these streets. For $25 you get the blush and refill pan. It can be swapped out for a bronzer or highlighter.
The last products are more skincare. The first product my sweet baby brother got for me along with another thing that I’ll share later in a different post. This glow oil makes me look like a have the skin of a goddess. My skin feels and looks so smooth and the smell screams summer times. Before I go home I need to buy another bottle I need to glow all year round.
Second product is a lip mask. It’s suppose to leave your lips smooth and reduce lines. I haven’t given it a 100% try but I did test it out for a few and for the amount of time it did make my lips smooth. I’ll give an update later on.
And lastly is a somewhat new product that’s hit the scene. It’s definitely new to me! My favorite youtuber Nicole Guerriero raves about this sunscreen. I have never been a person that protected myself from the sun but, the older I’m getting I would like to save my face from wrinkles and dark spots. Also, I hate putting sunscreen on, it smells gross, it’s feel so nasty on and it’s a total b*tch to take off but, this product allows you to protect from the sun and put on makeup on top of it. It’s sort of a oil consistency and at the same time hydrates your skin. It’s pretty amazing! You can find it in Sephora or on their website. For a while they were always sold out and this was the last one they had in store. So, I’m guessing it’s a great product. I’ll give it a try and give an update along with the other products.
