Worth the purchase?

So, last weekend I spent an entire day cleaning all my makeup brushes and I hope you know that clean brushes means playing with new makeup and an obvi makeup review.

So, I decided to wander into my local Ulta last week as a “treat yo self” and don’t worry, I treated myself lol.

1. Nars Sheer Glow (Barcelona) – $47

My skin is as dry as a desert in the fall and winter. Due to that, I normally have to shop for a dewy foundation so that my face looks like it has some life. I’ve heard fantastic reviews about this foundation and decided to dabble in it and see if it’s worth the hype or not. It’s worth the hype for the kind of finish it provides, along with the selection of colors. Sometimes I feel the need to mix two foundations to find MY shade. However, they had my exact shade which was amazing for me. This foundation is a medium coverage foundation, so when I’m going for a full coverage look I’ll put a layer of the Marc Jacobs re(marc)able foundation underneath while Nars still makes my skin look amazing.

2. Stila Magnificent Metals (Smoky Storm) – $24

I’m not one to normally dabble in full-on glitter but this was something I had to try and get out of my comfort zone. I have to say that I love this liquid glitter when I want to take an eye look from alright to fabulous. I would highly suggest keeping a brush handy for blending and putting your eyeshadow and the glitter on your eyes first in case any specks travel elsewhere on your face, you can get rid of them without ruining the rest of your makeup.

3. Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Spray – $32

I love this spray not only for setting my face but also priming my face. It provides a hydrating base for me to start my makeup off of. I know it’s also used for replenishing but I’m a college student who normally doesn’t come home to refresh my makeup or want to carry around a bottle to spritz myself with in between classes. Hopefully Too Faced comes out with a travel size and then I probably will look into carrying it to school with me.

4. Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint (Birthday Suit) – $20

I am in LOVE with the formula of the liquid lipstick. Normally, most of the liquid lipsticks I’ve come across are drying, however, this one is incredibly creamy and the other impressive part is the fact that it’s non-transferrable. Both of those traits make it something I will keep reaching for and using.

5. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush (paaarty) – $29

I don’t enjoy using a lot of blush, it’s not really my thing and it’s even harder to come across blushes that I find would compliment my skin tone. However, this blush not only compliments but is long-wearing and is highly pigmented. I think this blush would go great on any skin tone.
