Pink, pink, and more pink!
This valentines themed bag is loaded with sweet goodies all in different shades of pink (well, for the most part!) After last months flop of a bag that I didn’t even bother posting about, it’s nice to get some bloggable fun material!
The first item I pulled out was the Zoya Nails Polish in “Dot.” ($9) I received a full size version and have gotten this shade before but in a pretty gross color.. so it was nice to finally try it out! The color was very sheer and needed 2 coats but applied very nicely, dried pretty fast and had a pretty shiny finish.
Next up was the City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon ($3). This is some BRIGHT pink blush! It’s very pigmented and applies pretty nicely. I’m not very good with blush as my cheeks have a lot of red in them naturally. I was worried about this being too pink but once you blend it in a little it actually is a really pretty spring/summer color.
The next item is pretty funky, it is the Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base In One in Ambrosia ($18). The picture above shows how it is applies and what it looks like rubbed in.I was happy to get this color since it was the best option of the 3 shades sent out to ipsters but I was confused at first at what the heck it was! Apparently it is a tint & base and serves as a primer for eyeshadow. I also kind of like it alone with a heavier coat in the crease and a little highlight shade on the lid. Overall it is a pretty neat product and will continue to use it! I’m also super pumped that it’s such an expensive product and we received a full sized sample (score!)
This is the POP Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Fuchsia Freesia (Full Size is ($16). This is a GREAT gloss and I HATE glosses. I adore the color as it is actually a bit darker in person. However, the it is supposed to “plump” your lips and as you can see in the picture… there is no plumping goin’ on! (to my dismay :/ curse having small lips!) The only time I see a bit of plumping is when I layer it on really thick.
Lastly, with no picture, is the IPKN NY Moist & Firm BB Cream in Light (Full Size $35) This product was a Huge disappointment. Not only was the shade way too dark, it also didn’t apply nice at all. It wasn’t moisturizing and was very thick. Not to mention my tube was virtually empty when I received it. If you look closely in the picture of my lips you can see some remnants of my failed attempt at this product.
Lastly, I used all the products (minus the BB Cream) to make up my friend Hollee. This is the final look!
Hope you enjoyed the post!
