With so many new makeup sets and exclusives coming to market, there are so many things I’m eyeing for fall. Here are my top picks for this week.
I’m such a fan of the original beautyblender. I use it nearly everyday, and not just for foundation, but also contour products and blush. It’s a holy grail product for me! The blotterazzi is made of the same spongy material that the original makeup sponge is made of. It claims to absorb unwanted oils on the skin and it’s compact enough to keep in my purse. This could take away the need for blotting papers, and it’s reusable and washable! The sponges are supposed to be stay fresh in the compact. I’m sold! I’ve seen some mixed reviews on the blotterazzi but I want to give it a try since my skin gets so shiny throughout the day.
I’ve never used any of Becca’s beautiful highlighters and skin perfectors, but have heard so much about them. I’ve swatched them all over my arms at Sephora but never took the plunged and purchased one. Typically, I only love shimmery highlighters in theory. My shine-prone skin prefers matte highlighters…or at least shimmer in moderation. My inspiration for this wish is Lupita Nyong’o. This beauty has some serious shine to her skin. Every time I see a picture of her, she looks so naturally flawless. Somehow, even when she’s wearing more dramatic makeup, she still looks so naturally beautiful. Her skin always has a champagne glow to it. I’m ready to glow like Lupita!
Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Blossom (Pink Violet) ($26)
I’m always drawn to blushes and cheek stains. Stila doesn’t market this as a cheek stain, but rather a long-wear, waterproof, water-based gel. The texture is amazing and the colors are so beautiful in the jar and on the skin. These would have been great for summer, especially since they’re lightweight and waterproof, but they will be beautiful in the colder months to give cheeks a natural flush of color. I love all 5 colors the blush comes in, but Water Blossom is so different from any blush I own. It has a soft magenta/purple tone to it. The colors are all so bright when at first look, but I bet they will all look so pretty on the cheeks.
