Because friends always share their beauty finds (to help each other figure out what’s hot and what’s not), here are a few things I picked up last weekend…
Amore Pacific Control Cushion Compact in 208 ($60)
I’ve been dying to try a cushion compact foundation ever since I saw makeup artist and Butter London Global Colour Ambassador Katie Jane Hughes use one to blend concealer. This one even comes with a refill compact, so it’s like getting two foundations for the price of one. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and the coverage was sheer and lightweight and looked natural and absolutely lovely! I picked up shade 208, which is the darkest one available. Sadly, the shade range is very limited (boo), and 208 is a little peachier than I’d like. So I love the coverage, but I’m still on the fence about this particular shade for me… I’m gonna keep wearing it around the house for a couple more days to see how I eventually feel about it.
Estee Lauder Little Black Primer ($24)
A restock. I just can’t live without this lash primer.
MAC Pencil Sharpener ($10)
Totally not exciting at all, but I got this to use with the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencils, because I can’t seem to find any other non-MAC sharpeners that work well with them.
Formula X for Sephora Nail Color in Blazing ($10.50)
This deep, opalescent burgundy masquerades as a dark purple from some angles. I fell for the color, but I’m not impressed by the wear time. After two days wearing it with a base and top coat, I’m seeing tiny little chips at the tips of my nails. This one’s a possible return…
Have you picked up any new products lately? Any good stuff I should know about?
