I took a look at my makeup stash trying to decide what to review next and realized that since starting my blog I’ve done quite a bit of hauling that I might not have otherwise done. I love seeing what others have picked up recently so I thought I’d share! This is quite a lot of stuff, but I’ve collected it over the past 2-3 months so the damage isn’t quite as bad as it looks. Let me know if you see anything you’d be interested in seeing a review in any of the products shown. I should have quite a few concealer reviews coming up seeing as I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately.
When the boyfriend goes out of his way to say, “Damn, you look great today. I think it’s the makeup,” you know you’ve got a keeper. I pulled out the ol’ Naked palette while I was getting ready for work and I guess I picked a winning combination! Nine times out of ten my makeup is quite soft and neutral, very work appropriate, and this is no exception. Of course when I got to work the air conditioning was malfunctioning so the effort to look presentable hardly seemed worth it… it’s quite impossible to exist as anything other than a sweaty mess in the middle of summer in Florida with no A/C.
But I digress. In the end the A/C was fixed and everyone stopped sticking to their desk chairs. A happy ending for all!
Right off the bat I would like to state how seriously impressed I am by this formula! They are without a doubt the most hydrating gloss I have ever tried. The moisture really sticks around, even after the high shine wears off. They also give a good dose of color and I think the lipstick bullet shaped packaging is rather clever.
There are 20 shades total. There’s a nice color selection available with several neutral pinks, some brights and some darker shades. I wish they would add a few more peachy pinks to the line; their Celestial Coral is not what I would call coral although it is a nice color. The shades don’t always translate on the lips the same way they look in the tube either. The two I have for review today are 065 Caramel Infusion (left) and 080 Captivating Carnation (right).
