I have been on a bit of a makeup buying spree of late but I justify it to myself as trying new products while picking up essentials at the same time. I’m not a makeup hoarder and don’t have a huge collection so I don’t see my makeup buying as impulsive.
I recently purchased a Rimmel foundation and my first MAC lipstick which you can read about here if you haven’t already, but today’s post is all about my new blush and concealer.
I bought one of Dainty Doll’s powder blushes in the shade 004 You Are My Sunshine. It is a peachy, rose gold shade and it is absolutely beautiful. Pictures and swatches on the internet don’t do justice to how beautiful it looks in person. I’ve read that You Are My Sunshine is a dupe for NARS Orgasm. The pigmentation of this blush is really good and I don’t need to apply much as the flecks pick up and and reflect the light. As with all my other Dainty Doll products I love the packaging and this blush is so light and compact so it can be popped in your bag for touch ups throughout the day. The compact also comes with it’s own mirror.
I have been wearing this blush to work all week and it’s amazing how much it completes my look. I simply swirl my finger round the compact and lightly dab the blush onto the tops of my cheekbones which adds a nice sparkle to my face.
I’ve had the concealer stick I’ve been using for years and it has never let me down. All the other stick concealers I’ve swatched and looked at buying really don’t come close so I decided to give Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer a go. The concealer has a doe foot applicator which makes it easy to dot under the eyes or onto imperfections. The aim of the product is to conceal seamlessly while letting skin breathe.
I have been wearing this product to work all week too and I’m really pleased with how it looks. The concealer blends in so nicely and doesn’t feel cakey or wear off throughout the day. I place concealer around the edges of my nose, on my chin and on any spots. I only need a few dots of this particular one – a little definitely goes a long way.
Overall, I’m loving the new products I’ve purchased and I look forward to using them in my future makeup routines.
