New Beauty Products

Hellooooo!! So, I haven’t done a post about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on some of my new products! My sister is makeup obsessed and she is trying to convert me! I’m a clothes girl, but she says it is so worth it to splurge on good beauty products. I’m slowly purchasing a few new items here and there!

NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette: I love love this and highly recommend it! I’m not a contour pro yet, but I’m working on it! I don’t even use my other bronzers now! The palette is fab and so worth the money!

Make Up Forever Duo Matte Powder: I’m not completely sold on this. I have been using it for 6 weeks or so and feel like I can find something better! I hear their liquid foundation is fab, so maybe I’ll give that a try! My skin has gone cray cray since becoming pregnant.. I usually have pretty clear and smooth skin. My skin keeps producing little bumps(not pimples?) and is kind of dry and definitely not smooth. If you have any suggestions on products or cleansers let me know!
Maybelline a Dream Fresh BB Cream: So, this is my first ever BB cream… I know I know.. I need to get with it. I really do like it! I thought I would try a cheaper brand and see what the hype is about before I splurge. I use the color medium/deep. When I use this I don’t have to apply a moisturizer before applying my makeup. It has pretty good coverage, but I do feel like it makes me look a little oily throughout the day.

NYX Matte Black Liner: I love this eyeliner! I like liquid liner the best, but when I’m in a hurry this is definitely my go to liner!

Lancôme: I’m not sold on this just yet. I have read so many blog posts on how to get thicker lashes and a lot of girls recommend a lash primer/extender. I feel like it makes my lashes stick together after using it a few days in a row.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: I like this mascara so for! I go between using this and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! I will probably buy this product again!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m heading to Chicago to go see Taylor Swift with my sister! I’ll probably be the only pregnant girl, but I’m okay with that!

Xoxo,
Amanda
