It's been a busy few days, so I apologize for the lack of updates, Honey Bees. I'm back with an amazing haul from Sephora.com. After receiving an email promoting Sephora's bonus gift with $25 purchase, I thought it would be a great idea to try out my first Makeup Forever product and snag that $5 Urban Decay Loose Pigment which happened to be on sale! The gift with purchase was a Sephora travel bag with a ton of travel sized minis to try out, including a baby Makeup Forever lipstick in 36, Lorac eye primer and roll-on Bliss perfume. They also sent me my Happy Birthday Beautiful gift!
I happen to love the Urban Decay Baked products, and Baked in Loose Pigment form is so versatile. Yes, of course, this is gorgeous as an eyeshadow, but adding this to any product gives it a sparkling golden look. Add some to red lipgloss for a wonderful holiday lip or mix it in with your favorite pink blush for a bit of extra shimmer. I picked this product up for a mere $5, and it was worth every penny. Bottom line? This is a must-have for anyone who loves a little shimmer.
The Makeup Forever lipstick in 32 is a creamy medium pink that although wears a little dry, it is not drying. I happen to love this color which is much warmer and than Viva Glam Gaga and a touch lighter and muted than Mac's Pink Noveau. This color looks great on warm tones like, but would also look beautiful on cooler tones as well. Wear alone for as a matte pink lip, but I like to dab on my Chanel Glossimer in Pink Pulsion for some added glam. At $19 a tube, its price tag is a little heavier than MAC's but less pricey than brands like Nars. Bottom line? It wet my appetite for the rest of the MUFE lipsticks. I'm interested and excited to try more from Makeup Forever!
