Yesterday I hit up the local CVS and naturally, got caught up in the makeup section, more specifically, the NYX display. I’m a huge fan of this stuff- lots of great colors here, as well as professional quality at a lower price. Plus, they were ‘buy 1 get 1 50% off’- how could I resist that??
Ohhhh, what can I say about these [other than they’re wonderful]…?
The High Definition Finishing Powder in 02 Banana is a lightweight, translucent powder that softens the appearance of fine lines and pores, as well as brightening your skin in the process. I feel like a freaking supermodel when I wear this stuff. It looks amazing and is probably one of the best powders I’ve used so far.. and believe me, I’ve tried A LOT of them.
The Matte Finish Setting Spray is also a win, comparable to Urban Decay’s All-Nighter, but with a lower price tag- only $8! I’m totally switching to this, instead of spending $30 every couple of months. [Saving my precious money!] It lasts all day, and somehow [I don’t know how], seems to bring my look together whilst making my makeup stick.
The Soft Matte Lip Cream in 21 Transylvania and 20 Copenhagen are so awesome! Not only are they easy to apply [just like your typical lip gloss], they really are matte, without drying out your lips, and they stick like a lip stain. They last through dinner and cocktails with very little need for a touchup. Let’s see your lipsticks do that!
Overall, I’m really proud of this mini-haul.. Like, yeah, I wanted just about everything in the NYX display, but these four products are a definite win.
