Hello everyone! Today I have a small haul for you.
This weekend I popped into Target to have a look around and, as usual, picked up some things. None of the products I bought are brand new, but I have been eyeing them for a while and decided to give them a try.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Pink Me Up (045) is a muted pink with shimmer. It looked gorgeous but washed me out a bit when I put it on. If you have medium or dark skin, I recommend applying a lipliner underneath (and filling in your lips) before you apply it. I applied one that’s a couple of shades darker than my natural lip color and it looked great! The formula is creamy but it does emphasize any dry patches on the lips. Be sure to moisturize beforehand!
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny (720) is raved about everywhere. It’s not my first bronzer, but as soon as I put it on I fell in love! With my medium skin tone, the sun-kissed effect is very natural (note: the color payoff isn’t that great, but I don’t mind). It’s a matte bronzer and can be used to contour. Also, the mirror it comes with is AMAZING.
Maybelline Full & Soft Mascara in Very Black is a GREAT mascara. It lives up to its claims and gives a very natural look to your lashes. I only applied one coat of this, but I’m sure that if you apply a couple of coats it will look nicer. It volumizes the lashes and gives some length. My go-to for an everyday or makeup-no-makeup look!
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil in Deep Brown (260) has a great texture. It’s not too creamy yet it’s not too hard. The darkest shade is great for my dark brown hair. Plus I love that it has a spoolie on one side! Definitely one of my favorite things to fill in my brows with.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent (001) – Wow! I cannot get enough of this powder! It keeps shine at bay for up to 5 hours (although on me it only works for 4 hours) and comes in many shades. I prefer the transparent one, but there’s a shade for everyone. One of my HG powders!
Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Jet Black is a great eyeliner for smudging. It’s not the blackest-black (their Scandaleyes pencil does the trick), but it gives a sultry effect when blended out. On my oily eyelids it lasts all day with a primer, but I’m sure it can be used without one. This liner is also great for tightlining and lining the waterline, although it does give the raccoon effect after a long day.
