This week was unusually long. I don’t know if it was the change back to our typical Seattle weather after the brief stint of sun last week, or the pile of reading I’ve received from my classes, but I’m exhausted. All week long, I’ve been eager to give my new beauty products a try, but the time do so has managed to keep slipping away! Luckily for me, the weekend is here now, so I got to dig into my bag of goodies and test out my products to my heart’s desire!
Here are the beauty products I played around with, and my reviews below:
- Eylure Enchanted Grace False Lashes
- Nuance by Salma Hayek Brightening BB Cream
- Younique “Stinkin’ Rich” Red Lipstick
- ZuZu Luxe Lipliner in Cherry
I’m a huge false lash enthusiast, so I couldn’t wait to give the Eylure Enchanted lashes a go! I wear false lashes everyday, because I love how they make my eyes pop and enhance my makeup look. These lashes are strong, and they looked full yet natural when I put them on. They are definitely longer than the ones I typically use, but I would recommend them for a night out! After I glued them on, they didn’t feel heavy at all, which I love for my lashes.
Next up was the Nuance BB cream. I’ve been tanning a lot lately, so the fact that this BB cream wasn’t heavily tinted was perfect! I loved how it went on smoothly and filled in any open pores and lines. It’s really versatile, so try it out under your everyday foundation, on its own, or just to fill in some trouble spots.
Although the two lip products are from different lines, they ended up looking gorgeous together! Both the lip liner and the lipstick were in a deep red, so the colors blended really well. Typically, I don’t really use lip liner, but after using the ZuZu one, I totally see why people do! I lined my lips before applying the lipstick, and it found that it resulted in a much cleaner, defined look. Plus, it kept the lipstick from bleeding out at all. Both of these products stayed on really well, but they are not a lipstain: they will come off as you eat or drink.
All of these products were a hit in my book, and trying them all out in one sitting gave me a great look for a night out! I can’t wait to incorporate them all into my beauty routine more often, especially the red lip look!
