I just got my package from
Sephora the store that shall not be named in this blog, until further notice! I wanted to try the new Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, and when I saw I could get a free bag of goodies by placing my order online I jumped at the opportunity!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’d been a loyal MUFE wearer for some time, but I fell in absolute love with the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. That was mostly because I didn’t feel the MUFE was giving me the coverage and staying power I longed for. Well–it looks like those problems are gone! The new formula is thicker, which I like. It provides more coverage, but remains lightweight. I’ve also noticed it doesn’t make my skin appear shiny, like the old formula did. Plus–the color match is unbeatable! I wear shade N175 and it’s perfect! I wear Dark 2/New Orleans in the NARS foundation, and that color is a tad dark for me, but I’m able to make it work. All things considered, I’d say this is a HUGE improvement–and MUFE may have taken me back over to their side!
I also picked up this Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Test Tube set, to boost my total to $50 to get free shipping :-). This was on sale for $9, and since I’ve been wanting to try them, I figured it was the perfect time!
The set comes with a primer, two lip tar shades, and a small brush. The lighter shade is metallic, and the other shade is billed as matte–but I’d say it’s more of an opaque gloss. I really, really like this set! A little drop goes a long way. I applied the primer, and I was able to cover my lips with about three “pin sized” drops. It took some time to spread it around, and get rid of the streaks, so I don’t think this is a product I’ll use every day. The best thing is it has been staying put since I applied it–definitely a HUGE plus!
I saved the best for last…
This deluxe sample of the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner. Oh my goodness–this thing is amazing! I haven’t used a “pen style” liner before–and I’m thinking I should’ve boarded that train a long time ago…I can’t believe how great this thing is. It was a pinch to apply, and it has not budged! I certainly plan on purchasing the full size liner, when this runs out–I was sold with one try!
Are there any new products that you’re obsessing over? I’d love to hear about them!
