(couldn’t find pricing for makeup sponge but it was from CVS so prolly cheap. The angled brush with spoolie I took from a dip brow product from Ardell so idk the price bc it came as a kit.)
Overall a good haul. I would recommend drugstores for anyone starting in hauling. These were concealed in my pockets and my inner pockets on my jacket. Wasn’t dressed too fancy or too casual but well put together. I lifted with my friend and she got her own stuff that’s not pictured. CVS and Rite Aid are my favorites to lift from bc there’s no camera on the makeup aisle and the SA’s mind their business. Being nice is key!!!
I received so many compliments on the makeup I wore in my August favorites video, and I am so glad I filmed a get ready with me before I had filmed my August favorites!! This is a really laid back chill get ready with me video, so if you like this video style be sure to give this video a thumbs up!
My makeup for today. Wanted to try out some of my new makeup goodies I got for christmas and this was the look I came up with. I used the sephora and pantone marsala palette and a little bit of lime crime for the eyes, milani for the cheeks, and kat von d’s studded kiss lipstick in the shade gothica for the lips (I will be posting everything I got for christmas tomorrow, my last items will be in by then :D )
Hi everyone! It has been awhile since I have done a review so I decided that I should tell all of you about a blush that I have been really liking! I’m sure many of you have heard of this blush, and for good reason. It is a really pretty pink coral colour that I had been hunting for in Canada. I finally found Milani cosmetics at The Real Canadian Superstore (very random - I know, but they are there!).
First of all I wanted to mention my bottom picture. I read a lot of reviews saying that Luminoso (bottom swatch) is a dupe for Nars Orgasm (top swatch) which as you can see is not true. Orgasm is way more of a pink while Luminoso is peachy. So, if your looking for Luminoso because you think it is a cheap dupe for Nars - I have warned you.
That being said I really do like Luminoso. It had a really smooth texture and is very pigmented (I actually think it is more pigmented than the Nars blush). I find that I have to be light handed with this blush but it also blends really easily if I accidentally pick too much product up. I think that the colour of this blush is great for spring/summer. I would definitely pick up more blushes by Milani. I find that they are the best drugstore blushes I have used.
The only thing I don’t like about the blush is the packaging. The middle of the lid is made of clear plastic and it is already falling out when I open it. The packaging would be really easy to break if it was dropped. It does come with a small brush but I will never use it because it is so tiny. There is also a mirror in the bottom which is nice to have if you are on the go. Overall, I would definitely recommend these. I wish they were easier to find in Canada and that Canadian stores had a bigger selection, though.
Did this entire look with products from the drugstore so just goes to show
if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on makeup or if you’re just
starting out and want to experiment you don’t need to invest in super
expensive products! I used L'oreal True Match Lumi foundation, Revlon
color stay concealer, Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder, NYC sunny
bronzer, Milani baked blush in 05 luminoso, Revlon color stay eye shadow
quad 510 precious, and Revlon color stay ultimate suede lipstick 025
