Instead of a favorites post for May, I’ve decided to do a beauty review instead. I honestly haven’t came across many great products but I did come across some great music. Anyways, here are my reviews:
I love how this has a pinky, salmon undertone. It covers up my dark circles better than the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. It is also a tad bit creamier and easier to blend.
This is the type of primer where you must set with powder or a base shadow. If you don’t, it will crease. As for the undereyes, I don’t see much of a difference in longevity. But then again, I don’t really have any issues with concealer. I do like how the primer provides extra coverage since it is tinted.
KVD’s liquid lipsticks are interesting. They appear matte but when you press your lips together you can still feel moisture… which is a huge plus for me. It feels slightly sticky but nothing bothersome, like a lip gloss. This is a great everyday nude. Although it is lighter than my natural lip color, it does not wash me out.
Tarte, on the other hand, looks matte and feels matte. Unfortunately, I cannot wear this for the whole day. I wore this while working a 7 hour shift and by the end of it, my lip color cracked and I was in pain. I’ve tried applying Vaseline on top to add a bit more moisture, but it turns into a weird baby pink nude… which is definitely not the original color. Side note, if you are a fan of KVD Ludwig, then you’ll definitely like this shade too.
This is the first physical sunscreen I’ve tried. I loved how it absorbed quickly into my skin and how affordable it was compared to other sunscreens at Sephora (it was only $19.50). Unfortunately, it broke me out. I planned on returning it but I threw the box away so I’ll have to use it on other parts of my body.
What products have you tried out in May?
