Can you believe it is August already? Summer always seems to go by so fast! In my last post I focused on products I had recently used up in the month of July. Today, I am sharing a few of the items I recently purchased to replace a few of those items. I had a 20 percent off your entire purchase coupon (including prestige brands) from Ulta and platinum members earned 5 times the rewards, so it seem like a good time to pick up a few items I have been wanting to try.
I had seen several bloggers and YouTube vloggers talking about the new Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation that recently launched and could not wait to try it out for myself. It is advertised as a full-coverage, matte finish and long-lasting foundation. Even though I have only been wearing it for a few days, I can already attest to these claims. Per the advice of many reviews, I chose a shade lighter than normal, as the foundation dries a bit darker than when first applied. I am the lightest shade 0.5 Fair Porcelain. There seems to be quite a large shade range, however the lighter shades seem to all run on the warm side.
When I ran out of my Make Up For Ever Ultra HD concealer I knew I need to find another under-eye concealer ASAP-it’s definitely a crucial step in my makeup routine. I had tried a drugstore product that worked pretty well, but I was looking for higher coverage and something with a shade light enough to give my face a highlighted look. I decided to go with the recently released Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer in the shade Very Fair. Last year I tried the Born This Way Foundation and was not a fan for my skin type, but so far I’m pretty impressed with the concealer.
As I mentioned in my previous post, one of my favorite mascaras was discontinued. In it’s place I’ve been using the new Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara. I’m really enjoying the wand and the consistency of this formula. I haven’t had too many issues with smudging or smearing around the lash line- a total feat for the summer heat. I am curious to see if I notice any difference in the color of my lashes, as this product claims it will tint your lashes over time.
While I was at Ulta I totally fell total victim to the travel/sample-size section at the check-out and ended up picking up the First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist . I thought it would be a good product to replace my empty Mac Prep + Prime Fix +, so into my bag it went. I’ve been giving it a go for the last few days and it seems to be nice and refreshing both before and after my makeup application.
Overall I’ve been pleased with all the products I purchased and will continue to test them out and share reviews as time goes on. Did anyone else use the 20 percent off coupon over the weekend? It’s such a good deal! Let me know what products you are wanting to try this month in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
