Happy Sunday darlings!! Hope you're all having a beautiful weekend. This weekend has been a whirlwind for me. My brother's birthday was on Friday so we had family over which is always a blast. Then yesterday was my 4 year old niece's ballet recital and it was just too cute for words. My niece Sofia was brilliant and such a natural star. So while I was running around, of course I picked up a few makeup goodies since I had to go to the mall for my niece.
As I was running through Lord and Taylor, they were offering an amazing free gift with any $45 purchase. So you know me...free gift? I'm in! So I picked up....
Double Wear Stay-In -Place Makeup Foundation in 3W1 Tawny. This foundation has been on every fashion bloggers makeup must have list and I think everyone in the world has raved about it. It claims to stay put for 15 hours and is a medium coverage foundation. It's also buildable so I can layer up to get the full coverage look I love. The main reason why I bought this is because it's lightweight and claims to be weather-proof. It won't smudge in the warmer months. With Summer approaching, this is exactly what I need!
Double Wear Stay-In-Place Powder Makeup in 3W1 Tawny. This is the powder version of the liquid foundation. It is lightweight, oil free, and lasts for up to 8 hours. I only bought this baby because I do love touching up my forehead, nose, and chin around 3pm. I also sometimes need to touch up under my eyes. This compact will probably last me forever because I'll only be using about 3 to 4 pats a day. lol.
Then I got loads of free goodies!! I love me free stuff! It came in a nice vintage Harper's Bazaar Iconic Cover- Print bag but I was just more concerned about the products. Here's what I got...
DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant SPF Moisturizer: I always try to wear SPF and a moisturizer under my makeup and sunscreen is extremely important when the sun is out in full force during summer. I used it this morning and my skin is feel super soft! I love it.
NightWear Plus 3-Minute Detox Mask: I used this last night for the first time and it's good! I definitely need to detox my skin because I wear loads of makeup 7 days per week. I am also in a habit of testing out next beauty products so this mask is my way of being nice to my skin.
Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II: Ugh I am pushing 32 in 2 months and I am really obsessed with everything anti-aging. I want to forever look 23! This serum helps reduce lines and wrinkles, keeps skin hydrated and your skin will feel more moisturized. They say you need to use it for 4 weeks to see a difference. Well I am officially on it!
Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in Black: I use mascara everyday but honestly it's hard for me to stay loyal to just one. For some reason, I just grab any mascara and as long as it doesn't leave me with raccoon eyes...I'm cool. Let's see how this one lasts.
2 Full-Size Color Long-Lasting Lipsticks in Pinkberry and Rubellite. These shades are super pretty! I used Rubellite last night and it was a nice subtle red that wasn't too overpowering. I definitely think I can use either of these shades everyday.
I'll be giving these beauties a go over the next few weeks and I'll be writing a full review on some of them! What do you wanna hear most about?
