So i’m not gunna lie, I’m a student. Which means these higher end makeup products are what I was lusting over for christmas. And they lived up to expectation.
I was looking for a foundation that I could use everyday, but was buildable to wear on special occasions. Nars sheer glow is perfect, a medium consistency that melts into the skin. I apply it with a Real Techniques buffing brush and blend with their miracle complexion sponge. Only downside is the pump for the foundation is sold separately.
Next is the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette. I’ve never owned a naked palette before, and they all look so gorgeous. But the smokey one appealed to me as it has a range of great colours, shimmer and mattes. The brush that comes with it is also really good. And the packaging is so pretty!
Last but not least are the Smashbox lipglosses. These were a gift from my mom, and she clearly has such good taste. The pack comes complete with five colours, that are all totally wearable. They aren’t too sticky, which I like, because there’s nothing worse than getting hair stuck in your lipgloss. I’m not sure whether the set is still being sold, but the lipglosses are sold separately, in slightly bigger versions which are definitely worth the investment.
