I recently did a haul at my home away from home, Sephora. I picked up my usual products to refill my stash, but I also grabbed a few new products to try out and perhaps add to my rotation. I decided to try a few of the products for today’s look. Here are my thoughts:
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen– My sister swears by this product so I knew I had to try it. This is a weightless, invisible sunscreen that almost works as a primer under your makeup. It’s pretty amazing! It applies super smooth without any greasy residue.
Laura Mercier Flawless Lumiere foundation– I have been wearing the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion matte foundation since it popped up on shelves. I was interested to try this more natural version of the same foundation to achieve a more radiant look. It goes on a little thinner than I would like, but you can built on the coverage which is nice. It does leave the skin looking brighter with a velvety look without looking cakey. A great option for the hotter months.
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick– Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere has been loving these eyeshadow sticks for some time now. I usually am a powder palette kinda girl, but I figured I would venture out of my comfort zone. The sticks are super creamy and fade nicely into the eyelids. I used the color Plum all over my lids in a smoky effect and I have to say, I love how it makes my eyes super green. I also like that you can do a small amount or add a lot to intensify your look. It does have a bit of a sticky finish, but eventually dries.
Sephora Collection Glide Liner– I’m loving these new kohl eyeliners from the Sephora Collection. They glide on my waterline like butter and dry in about 30 seconds for an all day, waterproof wear. I love using different eyeliners for my eyes and I’m definitely adding this to my routine.
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara– Mascara is one of those things that can make or break your look. I love the water resistant aspect of this mascara (great for those hot Florida Summers) and it gives great separation with the spikey brush. I have to say, this isn’t my favorite mascara as I prefer a more bold and fuller look to my lashes.
Benefit Gimme Brow+ Voluming Eyebrow Gel– I’ve been using this brow gel for a few years now and it’s one of the best things in my makeup bag. I love how it gives you added texture to help make thinner looking brows more full. It helps set your brows for the day, keeping them in place even for those late afternoon gym workouts.
