Happy Friday everyone! I’m a little late with posting my favorites from last month. I got a little caught up with studying for finals and finishing a couple of projects for a photoshoot coming up.
:: Makeup ::
Last month I was really into lip products and tried a couple of new products. Even though liquid lipsticks are super trendy right now I actually prefer regular lipsticks. I found one of my favorite formulas and wish they weren’t so pricey. Dior Rouge Dior Lipsticks are super comfortable on my lips, hide dryness, and make my lips appear more full. They also don’t make my lips peel. I tried out two shades 999, a classic red, and 787 Exuberant Matte, a magenta. 999 is my go-to red and makes my teeth appear whiter. These do transfer but I don’t mind reapplying.
I tried KAT VON D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick before but wasn’t really in love with it till I tried Double Dare and Lolita II. I actually lost my first tube of Double Dare and had to repurchase it. Both fall into the MLBB category for me and are quite similar. Double Dare is mauve while Lolita II is more of a terracotta red. Do you need both? Probably not. These do wear off over time especially the center of my lips but since they are similar to my natural lip color it doesn’t look that bad. I usually apply lip balm 15 minutes before and wipe it off before applying liquid lipstick. The formula isn’t super dry and these shades also make my lips look bigger!
Now my third favorite lip product of the month probably looks really similar to the liquid lipsticks. I like wearing the Buxom Plumpline Lip Liners by themselves without a lipstick on top. Sometimes I mix the two colors I have or one. I have Hush Hush and Covert Affair. I love how they have brushes on the ends so that I can blend out the lip line. On most days I actually prefer a softer lip line over a defined lip line.
The last favorite makeup product is a pressed powder by Burberry. The Fresh Glow Compact- Luminous Foundation is finely milled and I purchased the lightest shade Light Honey- Shade 10. My tan from China is slowly fading so it helps my foundation not look too light. However, I wish they had lighter shades. Usually, I use a translucent powder but on days that I want more coverage I use pressed powder.
:: Teeth Whitening ::
I loved trying out Smile Brilliant’s Teeth Whitening system. At first, I didn’t really notice the results but in pictures in natural lighting, it shows! I also got a lot of comments that my teeth seem whiter. I usually use it at night while I do my skin care and relax before bed. Stay tuned for an in-depth review.
