The Beauty Rundown | September 2016
I picked this up after seeing it on another beauty blog. I remember the swatch being really pretty and I was really starting liking glosses at the time, so I was determined to get my hands on this the next time I went into NYX. I'm so glad I did. The shade I snagged was Chocolate Crepe, and what a beautiful shade it is. The colour payoff of this is amazing! It also doesn't feel heavy or too sticky on the lips. NYX definitely did a good job with the formula. It gives the perfect glossy look to your lips. I'm for sure going to be picking up a few more shades.
On the same visit to NYX as mentioned above, I also went ahead and purchased this Ombre Lip Duo from them. It was mentioned on Snapchat by one of my favourite YouTube beauty gurus. The shade looked absolutely beautiful on her, so of course I had to get it. To be honest, I think this particular shade doesn't suit me as well as it did her but the formula, wow. The product itself is very creamy and easy to blend, so achieving an ombre lip with this is made extremely easy. To make this work for me, I like to pair it up with a light gloss and it makes the worlds difference. If I find a better shade option, it will be going home with me! (I actually have my eye on Rags & Riches)
I mentioned this foundation in my 'Minimal Makeup Day' post. I've used this a lot, especially on days where the weather was unbearably hot but I still wanted to put something on my face. The coverage is light to medium, but it is buildable. The finish to this is very natural, like you have a healthy glow. The foundation stays put on my face for my whole wear without budging and does not look cakey at all. This is definitely going to be my go-to for future summer months!
