Hello all! Its been a long time. Med school is rough and all the little free time I do get, I would rather spent it on self-care and time with friends. Now that I come out of my 1st year of medical school victorious, here is the long awaited post. Again, I apologize for the wait ^^”
Colourpop lux lip oil– In shade Blossom Out. I don’t like the colourpop lip oil formula unfortunately. It doesn’t feel very moisturizing and wears off easily. It is purple tinted, but looks clear on the lips. If you like to dive into lip oils I prefer Catrice’s (amazing and affordable) and Sigma’s. I know the Dior lip oils are viral, but its sets sticky and I haate that.
BH Cosmetics HD brow pencil– My holy grail brow pencil and the brand is being discontinued T.T Would purchase again a million times. Its a dupe for the Anastasia brow wiz (imaged above). My current alternative is the SheGlam brow pencils.
Smashbox Vitamin Glow primer– TBH, I like their original one better. This one is on the heavier side of orange/citrus scented. I rather suggest using a vitamin C serum and go in with a primer than use this. Its a good primer, but I don’t think the vitamin C properties it has is enough or effective.
Nyx Matte Liquid liner– Again, another holy grail that’s discontinued. The reason why so many people love this liner is because the formula is water resistant and not waterproof. Hence its not a chore to remove and glides easy upon application. NYX, please bring this back, I’m holding onto my for dear life.
elf Beauty shield powder– I went through 2 of these. It’s a great powder, but I’ve since replaced it for the Wet n wild translucent setting powder. The Wnw is my current holy grail bc its a Laura Mercier dupe and the price and the amount of product you get is unbeatable. Go get WnW instead.
elf Wow Brow gel– Another holy grail of mine. I’ve gone through 2 in 2021, but since then finished more and have many backups bought. I essentially use this almost everyday to define my brows. Most days I don’t even use brow pencil, just this. Pretty much an exact dupe for the Benefit version (imaged above).
Revolution Loose Setting Powder– In shade light pink. TBH, I didn’t notice much of the light pink color since I would use this all over my face. It’s a nice powder, but the container it comes in is very impractical. Not shown here, but there is a mirror on the back of the cap which is useless because powder gets all over it anyway. Hence, I won’t be repurchasing. If you are looking for a pink setting powder, I recommend the elf Halo glow powder in pink.
Aaaaaan thats all of my empties for 2021. Will be posting more makeup content this summer I promise so stayed tuned! Thank you for reading my blog it means a lot <3.
