No shock here that I have some beauty products that I have been obsessing over. These last couple of weeks, I have been using the new palettes that I got for Christmas. I also feel like many drugstore brands have released new items, so whenever I go to the drugstore I am drawn to the new displays. I love getting new makeup because whenever I use new makeup I feel like a new person. Keep on reading to see the products that I can’t get enough of.
Once again, Santa listened to me this year. The Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette was one of the makeup items on my Christmas wish list. To my surprise, one of the gifts I opened on Christmas morning was the beautiful Urban Decay palette. Urban Decay never fails to impress me. Ever since receiving this palette, it has played a major role in my daily makeup routine. This palette has a variety of finishes, including matte, satin, sparkle, and metallic. I really like how this palette offers the perfect balance of neutral shades and jewel toned colors. I have been experimenting with all the gorgeous shades in this palette. I love doing more of a neutral color on the lid, like the color Truth, and adding a pop of color to my crease and outer corner, like the color Alchemy.
I must have been a very good girl because Santa left another palette under the tree, the Tartelete Amazonian Clay Matte Palette. Who doesn’t love matte eye shadows? Matte eye shadows are great for a neutral look. I love using these matte eye shadows for a simple look and then doing more of dramatic eyeliner, like winged eyeliner or colorful eyeliner on the bottom lash line. So far my favorite colors in this palette include, Free Spirit, Super Mom, Wanderer, and Dreamer, but as you can see this palette offers a variety of colors for different looks, so the possibilities are endless.
For those sleepless nights, concealer is a must to cover those dark circles under your eyes and any imperfections. Like I said, so many drugstore brands have released tons of new products. Maybelline has revealed a new line of concealers, foundations, and primers. I am in love with the new Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflage concealer. It really does camouflage any imperfections and brighten up your under eye area. Another plus is that the texture is creamy so it makes it easy to blend. I trust that the full coverage of this concealer will last all day and conceal any of those flaws.
Everyone needs a red lipstick in their makeup collection. Red lipstick is the perfect shade to wear if you want to make a statement. I have been wearing a lot of red lip shades during the holiday season and the winter season to add some color to my look. If you are still looking for a perfect red lipstick, I highly recommend the Maybelline Color Elixir in the shade Signature Scarlet. I am a huge fan of the Color Elixirs because they look and feel like a melted lipstick. The formula is smooth and hydrating, so it won’t dry out your lips. The color is very pigmented, so you don’t have to worry about touching up your lips every hour. The color, Signature Scarlet, is a true red, not to light, not to dark. Since the winter months can be drab, it is a perfect time to experiment with a bright, bold lip.
