Hello everyone! So today, I will be doing a second edition of Makeup Rotation. This week's products will mainly be featuring relatively new products from recent hauls on my blog and youtube channel. A lot of these I've used a couple of times, others I haven't used at all! I'm very excited to try these products out (and will hopefully be giving you a thorough review of some of these in the future)! Keep on reading to see what products are being used!
To start off, I will be priming my face using Benefit Porefessional Primer. A cult favorite product for many, and out of the four primers that I have tried this is one of my favorites so far. It definitely fills in pores, and I will be able to test out this week how good the oil controlling properties of this is. For foundation, I will be using Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation in Natural Buff that one of my best friends Jenny gave me when she was cleaning out her makeup collection. She adores this foundation, but had to part with it because she made the commitment to switch to only cruelty-free makeup products (something I greatly admire)! For any concealing, I will be using CoverGirl and Olay Concealer Balm in Light. I recently picked this up in Walgreens sometime last week, because it was 50% off (and because I was pretty sure that this is getting discontinued). I've heard many great things about this product from many bloggers, and I can't wait to try this out. To set my makeup, I will be using Becca Fine Pressed Powder in Wheat which my mom got for an extreme discount...$10! Naturally, I will test this out to see how effective it is.
For cheek products, I will be using Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Sleek Blush by Three in Pumpkin, and Benefit Watts Up Highlighter. Hoola is fast becoming one of my holy grail bronzers because well I can contour with it with my skintone! The Sleek Blush by 3 I received in Vanessa's package of our makeup exchange (linky) and to be quite honest... I haven't used it all due to how bright the colors are (which is ironic because I chose the blush because of the brightness of the colors). I'm going to testing how pigmented these blushes are and hopefully not walking out of my house looking like a clown. Watts Up is a beautiful highlighter that I received in Sephora's Birthday perk last year. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a cream highlighter!
For my eye brows, I will be using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown. I did a first impression here and I know I will need to play around with it a whole lot more to get used to it. For eyeshadows, I will be using Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Happy Place that I won at the Promise Phan meet up. For eyeliner, I will be using Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion. I've tried two eyeliners from the line...and so far I do not like their eyeliners at all (I feel like I may be one of the few bloggers in that boat...maybe this one will change my mind). Lastly, Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black which I also won at the Promise Phan meet up will be tested out.
For my lips, I will be using Bite Nude Luminous Cream Lipstick in Lychee and Musk and OCC Lip Tar Test - Primer, LoveCraft, and Pretty Boy. For those days where I am not wearing much makeup, you can expect me to wear one of the OCC lip tars to kick up my look up a notch. Otherwise, I will be wearing the Bite Lipsticks.
