FOTD: Subtle Pops of Color and "New" Product Try On

9:33 PM

Yesterday I went to Ulta to see if they had some of the new Soap and Glory makeup in stock. Of course they did not, but I still picked up a few things that I used today. I posted some swatches and first impressions on my Snap Chat (my username is atlantanbeauty) and I will also include my thoughts on them here.  I also wanted to incorporate a little bit of color, but I didn't want to go crazy because I wasn't in the mood for a lot of blending and using a ton of products.

I am going to demote the new products with an asterisk.

Products Used:

  • Benefit's Air Patrol
  • Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette (Latinus, Samael, Lucius, and Liberatus). 
  • Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown
  • Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil*. Ulta sent me a deluxe sample for being a Platimum member, but the shade isn't marked. I am liking it so far, though. I just think this particular shade is a little too dark.
  • Essence Lash Princess Mascara*. I don't think I am going to like this. It looks very clumpy on me, but I will keep trying it.
  • NYX Electro Liner in Powerlines. These, or at least this one shade, it just bad. I had to go over it so many times to get mediocre color payoff, it tugged, and the color began to fade pretty quickly.
  • Hard Candy Sheer Envy Pore Defense Primer Serum
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector
  • Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser
  • L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Powder
  • e.l.f Cosmetics Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky.
  • Laura Geller Baked Gelato Highlighter in Charming Pink. I finally caved into the hype and bought one of these. I get it now. It is beautiful. 
  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
  • Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Jennifer. I love these glosses, and Jennifer is a lovely pink with a slight hint of purple. It gives your lips a wonderful shine and makes them look fuller. 

Even though I wasn't in love with a couple of the products, I like how this turned out. A sheer gloss or an eyeliner is an easy way to add a fun pop of color to any look. And it can still be daytime appropriate.
