During my last visit to NYC, I was able to stop by the glossier show room and test out their new Cloud Paint in person. First of all, I love their show room! The space is small but you can easily walk around and browse/try all products, and everything is so visually pleasing.
I went in with one goal in mind and that is to test out all the shades for Cloud Paint and figure out which 2 I want (they’re running a 2 for $30 deal!). I knew I wanted Dusk as an easy, neutral blush but couldn’t decide between Haze and Puff, after playing around with all of them I ended up picking up Haze, a darker berry tone blush over Puff which is a pretty baby pink because the darker tone works so well with my complexion. I loved how easy it was to use them, the finish is beautiful and so natural, literally, like you’re naturally blushing. It was love at first dab. But one note on them is that a little goes a longggg way, but no worries if you used a little too much, they’re so easy to blend, even with Haze.
Ever since I got my hands on them I’ve forgo my powder blushes. I no longer need to have a finished base to apply blush, as I use Cloud Paint straight on a bare face that’s freshly cleansed and moisturized face. It gives me a beautiful effortless flush in the matter of seconds, no prep work required, and on top of that the longevity is amazing, at the end of the work day I can still clearly see the blush on my cheeks. Cloud Paint is really every girl’s shortcut to achieve rosy cheeks! I definitely recommend you give them a try!
With the recent temperature and humidity change I’ve been liking the bare face look with a just little blush. I also finally found a lip pencil that will work and show up on my lips, and it’s the MAC Soar that everyone was raving about thanks to Kylie Jenner. It is the perfect shade for my slightly darker lip color and looks amazing on, at first I was afraid it would look a little fake but it actually turned out looking really natural on me. I’m very pleased with the color and the formula is also not very drying so it’s comfortable to apply all over the lips. Those of you who’re still debating if it’s worth purchasing… My answer is a definite yes!
On my face today: Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown // Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner in dark brown // Urban Decay Naked Flushed in Strip // Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium // MAC Lip Pencil in Soar
I know I’m a little late one this, but I’ve been distracted by the holiday and are now finally getting around to this pretty little thing. I got this palette last month and have been taking it with me everywhere I go during the holiday, I just can’t get enough of it! The NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette is indeed a beauty.
At first I was worried that some of the colors in the palette might be too light for my skin tone, but when I tried them on I fell in love with all the blushes in this palette. The highlighter was a little too shimmery for me, but it was perfect for the holiday. The famous Laguna bronzer is beautiful, a very subtle bronzer for my skin tone, perfect for when I want a little color on my face but no something too intense. Last but not least, the packaging is just simply amazing! The gorgeous design on the palette is unlike the normal matte NARS packaging, it’s fun, festive, elegant and very interesting.
I’m so glad I got this palette, it was definitely worth the investment and the “almost full size” size will sure last me a while!
I’ve been reluctant to get bronzers because I just didn’t think it’s all that important because I am pretty tan as is, but the other day when I was looking at pictures of me out with my friends and saw how pale and flat my face look I knew it’s time to invest in one.
I got the Urban Decay Naked Flushed because it has bronzer, highlighter and blush all in one, and I figure if I’m going to start using bronzers might as well learn about doing some slight contouring as well. I picked up the darkest palette “Strip” because all the other bronzers are too light for my skin, at first I was a little hesitant because the highlighting shade that came with this palette looks veryyyyy glittery, but when I actually used it on my face it looks so natural. The 3 works amazingly together, the slight shimmer in the highlighter gives my face a little more glow and dimension and the brown-ish pink blush is perfect for my skin tone, using this palette enhance my features in the most natural way and gives my skin a healthy glow.
Using a bronzer and highlighter definitely helped my face look more dimension and features more defined. And since they already paired all the colors together for you you don’t have to worry about if the colors will go well together or not, it is also great for the mornings where you’re trying to put on makeup when still half asleep. I might want to try a more extreme contouring shade/kit in the future, but for now I think this is perfect.
