If you didn’t already know from my Instagram, Scarlett got into my make-up last month and broke my favorite Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette that I used to contour for special events. I was SO bummed but instead of dwelling on it, I used it as an opportunity to try something just in case I’d fall in love with it too. I hit the jackpot with the first try!
I am loving the Highlite ‘N Con Tour by The Balm Cosmetics! I actually like it better than the Kat Von D because it goes on softer and you can work up to a fuller coverage look. I also love the shades of the highlights, they come with matte and shimmer highlights too!
Other new products that I LOVE are It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+… obsessed! I heard so many great things about it but I played it safe with the travel size just to make sure I really like it before getting the full size. My new go-to drug store mascara is the Voluminous Lash Paradise by L’Oreal, which is (in my opinion) better than the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara that it’s known to be a dupe for… go figure. If you didn’t already get the memo that I’m a fan of The Balm Cosmetics… I got their Balm Springs Long-Wearing Blush in my ipsy glam bag a couple months ago and have been using it since!
The other products are products that I’ve been using for years and just replaced (again) cause I ran out of them. I’ve tried other brands but always went back to these go-to’s… Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (best lip balm EVER), It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer (best under eye concealer EVER, a little goes a long way), the Jelly Pong Pong Neopolitan Palette (got this in an ipsy glam bag too and love how pigmented the shadows) and my the Make Up Forever Duo Mat Powder Foundation (I haven’t found anything that lives up to this).
