While I do love experimenting with different makeup products, I still prefer to go back to ones that have proven to work well for me. That being said, if I were to run out of it, I’d definitely go back and repurchase whatever the product I’d need at the time.
I haven’t used a proper primer for the longest time, so I was happy to discover the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur, which not only blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines, but also offers long-term skincare benefits. This product makes my skin look flawless-no joke-it diminishes the appearance of pores and evens out the skin texture in a matter of seconds, while still offering long-term skincare benefits. Friends, I’m sold! Kiehl’s advises to use it as a last step of your skin care routine- I usually apply it after my moisturizer/sunscreen. Moreover, it’s paraben-free, non-comedogenic, and is suitable for all skin types.
On a day to day basis, the only eyeshadow I use on the lid is the Urban Decay Verve, which is described as ‘oyster shimmer’ shade- I think it brightens up the eyelid and makes the brown eyes stand out more. The eyeshadow is super soft, silky, richly pigmented, and easily blendable; when applied with the Nars Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Primer, it stays put all day.
My cult favorite lipstick is the Nars Dolce Vita– it’s a gorgeous ‘dusty rose’ color which is great for everyday wear. The Nars lipstick formulas are absolutely amazing (much better than Mac)-they’re sheer, ultra-conditioning, and long-lasting. Having only recently discovered the Nars lipsticks, I think that if I were to go back in time, I’d rather buy one Nars lipstick instead of two Mac ones- this illustrates how much I love them. The only lipstick I own at the time is Dolce Vita, so if you have any suggestions on what to try next, please let me know.
