As you can conclude from my cheesy selfie, I really like this look!
What I’m wearing:
Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer
L’Oreal True Match foundation [W1].
NYC Smooth Skin pressed powder [701A Translucent].
Urban Decay Ammo II palette [Maui Wowie + Oil Slick].
Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
NYC Expert Last Lip Color [443 Purple Crush].
Urban Decay All-Nighter makeup setting spray
Yesterday I went to Rite Aid to pick up a couple more NYC Expert Last lipsticks [50% off right now], and wound up buying the pressed powder as well, since I’m at the bottom of the pan and can’t afford to hit up Sephora right now [boo!]..
The powder isn’t bad, though I’ve certainly used better. The secret is to immediately toss out the crappy applicator pad that comes with it, and apply lightly over foundation with a brush. You will probably want to use a highlighter and blush as well underneath, unless you’re going for that pasty white goth look. Finish with a setting spray, and it looks more natural.
Despite its drawbacks [cheap packaging, drying formula, etc.], I really can’t complain for the price and will be using this for a while, until I can replace it with a better product. Def great to have in a pinch!
As for the lipsticks, I’ve previously mentioned I’m so in love with NYC Expert Last, and I picked up 443 Purple Crush and 405 Blue Rose, both of which I am obsessed with! I’m rocking bold lips right now, and I love it! Who knew I’d fall into a hot pink lipstick phase??
What is your favorite bargain product right now?
