September Beauty Wrap Up
September has come and gone and now it is time for a new month; a new month of more homework, more reading and more studying. I didn't post a lot in the month but I did have some exciting things happen to me. On top of going to the fabulous LVMH event and meeting other beautiful bloggers, I had a chance to pick up a few new products. Some of which I already featured on the blog where I will link to their appropriate posts below.
I already own three other colours of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and I freakin adore them. Click here for the review of those ones. If you would like swatches of the two above let me know. In short, these lip products are smooth and creamy along side being completely lightweight on the lips. You don't get a huge amount of wear with them but for the price, I cannot complain.
I recently did a review on the Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder review here, so check that out. With the other products, I am quite excited about. I purchased one of the new Mac Pro Sculpting Creams in Copper Beech as a cream contour and I am really loving the constancy. I do, however, wish I got the darker colour because this leans more as a subtle bronzer. Lastly, I purchased my first ever Becca Mineral Blush in Wild Honey. Again, if you'd like reviews and swatches let me know.
Last month I also discovered Hourglass Cosmetics' Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks which, might I add, I adore. They are heavily pigmented, comfortable to wear and matte. I did a review and swatches over here if you would like to check out the details. The colours in the range are gorgeous however I still maintain that the line needs more warmer shades. Hopefully they will release new shades in the future.
Along with my order of the Becca Powder Blush, I also purchased my first Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. As you can tell, I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks; to me, they are the perfect combination of gloss and lipstick and generally have better wearability. Secondly, I got my very first Tom Ford Lipstick in a very trendy hue. I featured it on a review here.
These are few more of the items I got from the Givenchy Bloggers Event. I am really excited to try out the new mascara, as well as the Mister Perfect makeup remover pen. I've already given the Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Cheek and Lip Balm a shot and although the pinkiness doesn't show up well on my darker skin, on the lips it is very moisturizing. Review of all these items coming soon!
