It has been a while since I did a beauty review post. I have been trying out a lot of new products over the last few months. So, I decided to talk about a few of them. Lets get started!
NYC Ultra Moisture Lip Wear in 314 Petal
“Looking for uptown style?
“The new ultra-mattifying primer can be worn as a matte, silky base before applying your foundation, or on top of your make up to keep you looking effortlessly chic without clogging pores.
Ultra lightweight formula that minimizes the appearance of pores.
Controls shine for up to 8 hours creating a soft, perfectly matte complexion.
Won’t feel heavy or greasy.”
My skin is not super oily, but I picked this up because I prefer my skin to look matte, instead of dewy (which is how it looks after my moisturizer and sunscreen). For me, it didn’t mattify my skin as much as I would like, however I still really like this primer. It is thick, so you don’t need too much product to cover your face. It doesn’t feel too heavy or greasy. But, the biggest thing for me is that, it leaves my skin feeling super smooth and creates a really good base.
Garnier De-Constructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray
“Texturizing Spray with Black Fig.
No beach required! Tousle and texturize your hair for all day beach waves.
Get touchable control with a subtle, satin finish.
Beach Chic creates loose, textured waves for naturally bodified looks that are non-tacky, not stiff or weighed down.”
I have rather straight hair, but, when I was in Florida in March, my hair had amazing waves just from the salt in the air. Therefore, when I say this on sale, I decided to pick it up. Although it isn’t the same as the beach, this spray gives me great “done-yet undone” (it says that on the bottle) waves that, like it says, last all day. It doesn’t feel crunchy or heavy in my hair. And a bonus is that it smells good.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
“Up to 5 hours natural shine control with natural minerals. Helps minimise the appearance of pores. Dermatologically tested.”
They could use a better description, but anyways, on to the product. I bought this after Meghan Reinks mentioned it in one of her YouTube videos. As I mentioned before, I like my face to look matte, and this product does the trick. I apply it after my BB cream and my face looks matte but not cakey or powdery. Honestly, this is one of my favourite products in my makeup drawer.
