I went to Sephora today to pick up some items for wedding season & decided to try out some NEW products! Can you believe it? I always go for the same things every year but I changed it up this year & so far so great!! Let's get started!
First I went in with a list, which is smart. It's like shopping for healthy food, if it's not on the list DON'T BUY IT!!!
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette is a God sent for your face! Have you tried this??? First of all the packaging is perfect & so easy for multiple uses in a day. When doing wedding makeup, I reach for the same products multiple times a day, this makes it so easy to contour without single sticks or powders! It's super pigmented & glides on effortlessly! I love the three different shades of contour, it's really a 3 in 1 palette for all skin tones! Amazing! At $49 at Sephora, you're getting 6 amazing shades! I would say that unless you are a makeup artist or like to try different shades of contouring, then this may be a lot of contour colors for one person!
I was in need of a new eye lash curler, I've used the ELF ones for years & replaced them so many times! I decided to spend more than $3 on an eye lash curler to see the difference & what result I could get from it! I mostly use lashes on my brides, but I love using a curler to really blend together the real lashes & fake lashes! So I picked up the Tweezerman ProCurl Eye Lash Curler in Rose Gold!
Moisturizer! My top 3 makeup must haves!
MOISTURIZER. MOISTURIZER. MOISTURIZER!
If you don't moisturize, we can't socialize! :) haha!
I picked up a delux sample size of the Sephora Instant Moisturizer, I liked the light scent but I couldn't commit to a normal size. It's light & creamy without being greasy! Which is perfect for Spring & Summer! It not only smooths skin but it illuminates the skin!
Below is my prep & stay combo! Wedding day makeup normally HAS to last around 5-8 hours! Through kissing, hugging, crying, sweating, dancing, cake & drinks! So I am a primer & setting spray addict! BUT I changed my products this time! I went with the Sephora brand primer because it has the same texture & effect as the Smashbox & Cover FX primers, for half the cost! My first primer I was going to try was the Nars primer, but I honestly did not like the consistency & thought the Sephora one had much better coverage ! And I'm trying out the Makeup Forever Mist & Fix spray! Which so far is doing an amazing, wonderful, absolutely freaking terrific job!!!!
So like a dumb dumb, I take swatch photos but not product photos, so the left photo belongs to Sephora! Now when I walked in, I tried SIX different eye liners out. I was between the Urban Decay & Sephora brand. And some how Sephora beat UD! I loved the UD one but it never set like I wanted, it was to smudged looking for me & plus the Sephora is water proof which is a plus!
In the end my Sephora points managed to get me this blinc. mascara that actually creates tubes on your lashes, a lot like the model mascara I was using!
Gah! We are done. No more photos or words!
I am really excited to use these products soon & do separate reviews on most of them!
