Smashbox Photo Matte palette
I picked up this palette during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty event. It normally costs $49, but I only paid $29 during the sale! It’s my first all-matte palette, it has a good variety of neutral and blending colours and it comes with a dual-ended brush, so I figured it would be a good piece to have for the price. You definitely need to use an eyeshadow primer with this one or you won’t see much colour payoff. This is a good palette for days when you want a pretty natural look.
Too Faced “Papa Don’t Peach” blush
I swatched this blush last time I was at Ulta and really liked it. It’s not extremely pigmented, but it is buildable, which I really like because I don’t like strong blushes – they make me look clownish. It smells like peaches which adds to the enjoyment of putting it on. It also has a nice shimmer to it, making it great for days when you are in a hurry and don’t have time to do the whole blush and highlight thing. Overall, it’s a great everyday blush that gives a very natural, healthy glow to your face.
Pacifica “Tahitian Gardenia” roll-on perfume
I have always loved Gardenia scents, they remind me of being a kid spending the summer break at my grandparent’s country house, which had gardenias and jasmine planted in the garden. This is a great little roll-on to carry with you anywhere you go. We go to Disney World a lot and I always bring it with my to the parks and apply it throughout the day to keep myself smelling fresh and awesome during the sweaty Florida days.
Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte lipstick in shade “Swag”
I’m not really thaaaat much into matte lipsticks, however this one sold me immediately. The formula is super comfortable and soft, once it dries you don’t even feel it on your lips! Typical nude colours never look good on me, they’re usually too brown, which washes me out. This colour is a perfect nude mauvey shade on me. This product usually costs $18, I actually got this during a promo too at Ulta for $12!
Bath and Body Works Pocketbac in “Fresh Strawberries”
I’m one of those people who hates touching public things that are being touched by everybody. That’s where this product comes in. I use it a lot when I go out! I actually also use it after eating out if I didn’t get a chance to go to the bathroom and wash my hands, as well. It gets rid of any greasy feeling on my hands and I love the smell.
