I mentioned that I bought two things from Sephora recently. Well, I just got some things from Ulta over the weekend too! I got some things I wanted and needed, but I also got some things for my sister for her early birthday and Christmas present that I do not have pictured.
For some reason, I didn't think of taking pictures of the products out of their boxes. I will be reviewing these products anyway and will include actual product pictures in those posts! For this post, I will just touch on all of the products since I have tried them since I got them.
For makeup -
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Soft Brown - is a light neutral brown and the pencil is so incredibly thin. There is also a small and spoolie included to help blend out the pencil.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Licorice is a dark purple lipstick. It goes on with a bit of a sheen, but then goes to a more matte finish. My sister mentioned wanting a purple lipstick and so I got two of this shade. I love it so far and it is perfect for fall.
NYX Lipliner Pencil in Mauve is exactly that - a mauve lip pencil. I heard this was a dupe for the famous Kylie Jenner signature lip color from MAC called Whirl. I've been getting into more nude-y / my lips but better colors and so I decided to try this out.
Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer is a lash primer that was released at the same time as their Perversion mascara. I have reviewed that mascara here and I did say that Perversion wasn't worth it to me since it didn't hold my curl. I don't mind spending more for primers because I find that they help so much. Since Perversion gave me so much volume, I figured Subversion would help too. I only tried it out once and so I don't have a verdict yet.
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow in Light / Medium is a brow gel with fibers to help the brows look more full. Since I lightened my hair, I also wanted to lighten my brows to make them match a tiny bit more. The gel does make my hairs look lighter and also more taupe-y - which is exactly what I wanted.
Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is my standard cleanser, but I don't use it everyday. I have an oil cleanser that I already talk about all the time, but the Eucerin cleanser also doubles as a brush cleaner for me. It gets rid of all the foundation in my sponges too.
Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner is a chemical exfoliation product that will help with wrinkles and even acne marks. I sometimes use a glycolic acid peel, but I get lazy. With a lower percentage toner, it's a lot easier to apply everyday to help me get into a routine.
Which product do you want me to talk about first?
I do have some other review posts lined up, but getting some feedback will help me prioritize what products need to be focused on first. I really appreciate any comments so please tell me what you think below!
