With a new 3 month baby boy, getting to a high end makeup store is completely out of the question. I barely have a chance to online shop, never mind go to an actual store. I do however completely take advantage of my Walmart and Target adventures by indulging in the makeup section. I've been so shocked at how amazing my recent drug store purchases have been. They're actually so much better than my high end products! I don't usually use many drug store products on my clients, but with these I can't resist.
REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIPCOLOR: Favorite lipgloss hands down!!! The texture is so soft and luxurious that you will throw away all your sticky lipgloss's. I love that it's matte, but not dry, and the packaging is beautiful. The only color I've bought so far is called Seduction. It's the perfect pinky rose color and is perfect for everyday or even a wedding. So far every bride has been loving it!
MILANI PRIME PERFECTION PRIMER: Add radiance and a healthy-looking glow to your complexion while softening the look of fine lines, large pores and flaws. Prime Perfection Hydrating + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer blends invisibly and maintains the skin’s moisture balance, resulting in an illuminating and flawless finish. (www.milani.com) I love that this primer is hydrating! It feels so moist and cool when applied to the skin. Every time I use it on a client, they say "wow, that feels so good".
MILANI 2 IN 1 FOUNDATION: Combat under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one. A no mess, no drip pump dispenses just the right amount of fluid needed to achieve a flawless look and works around the clock to keep skin looking naturally perfect! (www.milani.com). If you love FULL coverage foundation, you will love this one. I'm pretty sure it can cover anything. Although I don't have many imperfections to cover I always tend to go for full coverage foundations because they give a perfect, flawless finish. When applied with a damp beauty blender, this foundation looks beyond perfect. I love that I can skip the concealer when i'm in a rush and that it has a pump dispense to help speed up the process. It also lasts just as long as my high end foundations throughout the day.
MAYBELLINE BROW DEFINE AND FILL DUO: Nicole called me earlier in the week to tell me about this products and I COULD NOT WAIT to go buy it! I literally stopped at Walgreens an hour after she told me because I couldn't wait to try it. Although my brows have come a long way, I've struggled with achieving full brows FOREVER! I've been using Anastasia for years and want to cry when the pencil runs out without warning because it usually takes 2 weeks for a new one to come in. Anyways, this product has changed my makeup game substantially! It makes shaping my brows SOO much faster and they look so much more natural. I don't even think I can explain how good it is. Unlike my Anastasia pencil, this one has a powder thingy on the end (don't know what to call it, sorry) that smudges out the pencil and makes it look so natural. I personally think it lasts longer than the Anastasia pencil and looks a lot more natural, so BYE BYE ANASTASIA!
