This weekend I went crazy at Sephora, Lush, Macy's, MAC, and Duane Reade (only place around that carries The Balm)! I just wanted to share some of the products I picked up and let you know my initial thoughts.
I've only just begun to dip my fingers in everything and more in depth reviews will most likely be coming for a few of the products, but I thought I'd share what I purchased, as well as what I think of a few of them so far. I will list all the products below but the three I'd like to quickly talk about are the Marc Jacobs Beauty #InstaMarc Light Filtering Contour Powder in Mirage Filter 40, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Sad Girl, and MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche.
I'm obsessed with the Marc Jacobs contour palette in every way possible. The contour shade is a perfect cool toned shade that will give you maximum cheek definition. The highlight is a soft yellow banana shade that really brightens under the eye area. I think the most noteworthy thing about this palette is the feeling of the powders. They just might be the softest I've ever felt and the effect created by them is simply flawless.
I'm also obsessed with Sad Girl by Anastasia Beverly Hills. By far the most unique lip color I own - a deep red with specks of gold glitter - I think this will be a favorite of mine during the cooler months. Until then, I'll keep showing Pure Hollywood some love, another favorite of mine by Anastasia!
The last product I want to quickly touch upon is the MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche. This is a stunning reddish brown eyeliner. If you have brown eyes, you need this in your life! I have extremely dark brown, almost black eyes, and this color makes them pop. It gives you the best sultry look, I am obsessed!
Those are just a few products that really left an impression on me. I'm also very excited about the Naked Skin concealer, The Balm Bette-Lou Manizer (I love Mary-Lou Manizer!) and Becca Opal highlighter. I'll keep you posted with detailed reviews, or possibly swatches, of some of the products as I continue to use them.
