Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I thought I would share a review of two beauty products I purchased from Sephora, just in case you want to do some shopping on Friday (that might be a good time, it happens to coincide with SEVERAL BIG sales!) LOL
I purchased the Norvina by Anastasia palette and Best of Nudes Mini Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick set (by Kat Von D). I like the bright colors of the Norvina Palette, it was 15% off, and has a holiday vibe. The mini lipstick set attracted me due to the colors, the mini sizes, and a bonus is that its a crème matte lipstick which does not dry the lips! Yay!
So first for the palette: I’ve tried it three times so far since Saturday and I just love it. It’s going to be great fun over the holidays, the colors are so pretty, and you all know I like sparkle. Here is what I did on my eyes (borrowed from Temptalia):
Inner tearduct: Dreamer, Inner lid: Summer, Middle of Lid: Love, Outer lid: Dazzling, Volatile, Crease: Eccentric, Deep Crease: Volatile, Above crease: Incense, Browbone: Base, Lower Lash line: Celestial and Dazzling. I also used Anastasia Brow Whiz in Ebony, and Urban Decay 24/7 in whiskey. These are such beautiful colors, I so recommend!!
Then with the mini lipstick set by Kat Von D: I was attracted to them because of the fun colors. I felt the need for new colors this winter (I love lipsticks btw) although most of the fun colors I’ve seen are a matte and super dry my lips. I have very sensitive skin and this must apply to my lips as well. If I wear a matte color, my lips are literally peeling by the end of the day. That’s not super cute if you know what I mean, so I’m careful about wearing matte colors. Then the lipstick themselves have a studded case and they are mini so they almost look like shell casings (maybe that’s the point?) but they fit in my mini bags perfectly. I wore Hawkind yesterday and it stayed on all day, didn’t smear over lunch, and didn’t dry out my lips so if you’re looking for a great creamy matte lipstick, this is for you! (in the picture today I’m wearing sanctuary)
I hope this has been a fun review that you can check on this Friday if you’d like! You know it’s the biggest shopping day LOL! (Both of these beauties are at Sephora!)
