I figured I'd use this as an opportunity to restock things I'd run out of soon that I like and to try a few new things that I'd been eyeing. So here's everything I got (which came to $59).
|from top to bottom:|
Some eyeshadows (y'all know I had to get extra blacks and get a white because Toshia (A Cyster's Journey) and Kassie (Unique-Desire) so strongly recommended it)
|2 "Black", "Taupe", "White"|
Blush and Jumbo Eye Pencils
|I got 2 "Taupe" blushes because I ran out of the first one I had so quickly (it's a great, natural contour shade as it's slightly grey so it looks shadow-ish), "Peach" blush, and 2 "Milk" JEP's and a "Black Bean"|
|"Extreme black" and "Extreme blue" I can't wait to use the blue one!|
And then I got some Smooth Matte Lip Creams thanks to all of Meme (Makeup and Meme) and Dani's (Makeup by danisaddiction) raving about them!
|From left to right:|
Addis Ababa, Tokyo, Istanbul, Antwerp
I also got a small eyeshadow brush and a gold glitter liner (I already have a silver one so I wanted a gold one too). I knew I had to use some of these today so I asked my kiddo which of my new lip colors I should use and what color does she pick?? The brightest fushia color ever! So I used Smooth Matte Lip Cream in "Addis Ababa" today. And this is what I did with it (it's a VERY Rihanna-ish color!)
It is so stinkin bright and you can't even tell here. It didn't bother me but I don't think the hubby was diggin it haha. I did get compliments on it from some ladies at a hair place today where I took my daughter to get her hair cut. They all thought I was a hairdresser haha and wondered why I brought my daughter there to get her hair cut.
I have to say that I really like the way the smooth matte lip cream applies (and smells), it is kind of similar to the way the old school longwear lipcolor applies, except much less liquidy and a lot more smoothly. And it does not dry like those did at all! It did settle into the lines in my lips after a few hours but I don't mind reapplying so it's not that big of a deal to me (and I got them for $3 each, so that's a plus!).
Um... I think that's all for today! I'll let you know what I think of some more of the products as I use them! I hope you guys all have a great weekend! Thanks so much guys!!!
