Make Up Wants

I'm not much of a make up girl. I pretty much stick to the same routine of primer, skin color eyeshadow, black eyeliner, concealer, pink blush, and chapstick. I use the same colors, techniques, and brands, but I've been getting a little bored lately and would like to try new make up. If any of you have some favorite beauty buys that you think I should try out, please let me know. I would really appreciate it!

There are several things I've been wanting to try out for a while now, but I'm not sure if I should get them.

Too Faced Candlelight Powder

I have oily skin and need to use powder throughout the day. I've used CoverGirl pressed powder for years (and will continue to do so), but this powder has me interested. It gives your face a soft candlelit glow without being too sparkly.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Lately, I've been trying more lip colors because of Maybelline's Baby Lips, but I've heard fantastic things about this lip butter. That there are so many colors to choose from, that it's hydrating, that it lasts for a long time, that it's not too sheer and not too bright. The only problem would be which color to choose!

Klorane Dry Shampoo
My thick, wavy hair gets oily super quick, so sometimes I use Cake Refreshing Powder, a dark powder that smells like cake, but I would like to try an aerosol one that works. Tresemme's Fresh Start Dry Shampoo made my hair look even worse unfortunately. I've also heard good things about Batiste's Dry Shampoo.

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment

As a chapstick addict (I blame you, Jackie haha), I love anything that will help make my lips soft and smooth. I've heard that this lip treatment is fantastic and have always wanted to try it out. I'm thinking I should just wait until my birthday because I hear Sephora is giving out mini ones of this to Beauty Insiders (which is free to join). Now I just have to wait until June.

Lush Aromaco Deodorant
I've been looking for an alternative to antiperspirant for a while now. I don't plan to stop using it altogether, but I would like a good deodorant for laidback days. People seem to love Lush products, and I would like to get on that bandwagon. Deo-Dry Stick also seems like a good option.

Have you tried any of these? What did you think? Any recommendations?

  1. Haha sorry Sara :-P that lip color looks really cool! i'll have to remember to get that free sample!

    i will always suggest Urban Decay make up. they have soooo many colors from bright colorful ones to a lot of neutral/tans/browns. and they have sparkle and shimmer which i love. they also make colored eyeliners you could try.

    maybe start out with one of those kits for your eye color. the brown eye one comes with shades of brown and purple and you add purple eyeliner.

    " If you have hazel eyes, avoid using an excessive amount of blue-hued shadow. It can dull down hazel eyes and have the opposite effect of what you hope to achieve.

    Go toward more neutral colors such as brown. Gold, pink, lavender, plum, khaki and mocha are great ones too. Purple shades contrast your color, making eyes look dramatic. Warmer shades of mocha complement the green hue in hazel eyes, giving a natural effect. Soft pink is another good color. It is irresitable for a romantic look. Another great, vibrant color to use is a teal hue like the one in the palette below. It can really make your eyes pop!"

    I found that online. maybe use that to help you pick some new colors.

    I have some olive eyeshadows and eyeliners you could try, i think they would look good on you, also i have shimmery pinks and purples.

    1. It's all right haha! I have lots of kits with browns, purples, and light pinks, so I should actually use them lol! I love that you said gold because I would really like to use it for when I go to class, but in a subtle way.

      I love Urban Decay, I just wish they weren't so expensive, but I love all the colors they have!

      Thanks for the help! :)
