Your summer story starts here
That’s what was on a card in this month ipsy bag. Quite precise, isn’t it? It was chilly in the beginning of the month but temperature jumped up to 19°C (66°F) right after and it started feeling like summer. So yes, our summer story starts right here ➡️
📌 Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl
I really like the color. It’s one of my favorite shades for summer, it’s sorta blueish mint color. It seems to me too liquidy and sheer. I needed three coats. I can’t say anything about how long it lasts. I’ll keep you posted.
Btw, the lacquer from PS Cosmeceutical from April Glam Bag lasts super long and I just love it.
update: I don’t like the process of applying it, because it requires 3 coats! And honestly, it’s not that long lasting 😦
📌CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet #32
Another matte lipstick. Not that I’m complaining, lately I just can’t resist getting another lip color. This shade is very similar to the tarte one I got in March Glam Bag and the one from NYX that I featured in my February favorites. I can say that it is long lasting because I had hard time wiping off the swatch). Now, I got to the point when I get stuff that I already possess, so I just gifted this lipstick to my friend)
update: since I already owe a similar color and it was too drying on me, so I just gave it to my friends.
📌Urban Decay Powder Highlighter in Sin
Highlighter again? I got one from Elizabeth Mott in April Glam Bag. But again not complaining, I gifted that one to my beloved sister, and even happier about this one as it’s slightly larger in size.
update: I guess I liked this shade a little bit more that previous highlighter I got. It’s a pretty champagne color, a great addition to my makeup routine.
📌Starlooks Artist Edition – Luxe Longwear Star Stamp + Liner Pen
What can I say, I wanted a new eye liner. I personally never used liner pen, and always wanted to have one. and this one comes with a star stamp ⭐️ I kinda like it, but I’m just not sure if I will actually use it for make up. Absolutely, random side note, my friend put a bunch of star stamps on her wrist, and she said that she might use that to pretend that she had a crazy weekend at the club.
update: surprisingly, I got really into using this liner pen, I never used the star stamp though. It seems to be quite long lasting, but it fades a bit after a while.
📌Luxie Beauty Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660
Just love it. This brush is very soft, and I like that its bright blue color. I won’t use it for foundation, I actually switched my technique to using beauty blender for that. This brush has a nice dome size, so I will probably use it for blush or highlighter.
update: I use this one for blush. So far, it’s my favorite brush. I want more Luxie brushes!
