Rediscovered Beauty Products

 

Hey guys! Today I want to show you something excited while I was clearing up my makeup stash drawers. I don’t know about you but February always make me feel optimistic and full of energy to do something, anything fun. If you know about the folklore story about groundhog day then that’s basically how I look forward for spring.

Accordingly to Global news, “Canada’s celebrity groundhogs have “predicted” an early spring after officials declared the pudgy prognosticators did not see their shadows. If the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow, then tradition says spring is on the way!” Woohoo!

As I was doing my early spring cleaning, I stumbled upon these makeup products that were shoveled to the deepest end of my makeup drawer. It’s insane to find back beauty products that I used to wear a while ago and then totally forgotten about them.

I got two of the Velvets Eyeshadow by Essence Cosmetics in Smooth Caramel and Taupe Secret. The image on the right is their Super Soft Eyeshadow pot in Keep Calm and Berry On.

I really adore the packaging of the Velvets eyeshadows. I’ve two of the nine shades out there and I can’t wait to get my hands on more colors for Spring.

Here’s the color swatches I did with one swipe of shadow directly from the pan to my naked arm. These are some nice neutral shades for everyday wear. The textures are very soft and nicely pigmented. I created an #EOTD look which I shared on my Instagram.

It blends smoothly on the lids. The only downside I find about this berry shadow is that the color payoff is so much better on the eyes than on swatch. It applies best with eyeshadow brush instead of fingers. On a positive note, I didn’t see any creasing or fall out from these shadows which is awesome. For only CAD$2.49 you’ll get a good quality and value for money drugstore products.

For being a super cheap product, I’m actually pretty impressed with this. The coverage is decent and it blends in well with my skin and I look significantly better honestly.

Elf Cosmetics Concealer is available at any Walmart stores. The shade I have is in Light Beige. It’s a nice color match for my skin tone.

I remember now how I used to reach for it. I really enjoy how easy the doe foot applicator work. I applied them on my under eyes, the bridge of my nose and forehead. It gives a good coverage on my skin without looking cakey. Bye bye to my dark under eye circles. This is the product which I know I’ll be reaching for.

Another product I found in my stash is the BH Cosmetics Flawless Brow Highlighter.  I must have tried it a while ago to write a review and it completely slipped off my mind until a couple of days ago. I start wearing it and I must say, I’m quite impressed with the results.

Matte

This is a duo ended pencil with a matte finish on one end and a shimmery one on the other. A double-ended matte and shimmer highlighter for your brows. Use the matte side for a soft, subtle highlight or the shimmer side for an added glow.

I also use this matte highlighter for under my brow bones to clean any access from any brow products besides just as a highlighter. This product is creamy and soft. You wouldn’t believe me if I say that it glides like a dream. So smooth, so blendable. I’m loving it.

Shimmer

They’re very easy to use or apply especially when I use the shimmery ones for my inner corner. It works wonder!

Not convince! You got to try this yourself. I know you’re going to like it as much as I did. Maybe, I say maybe this post will make you want to start your spring cleaning too. who knows you might rediscovered something in your stash too.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Stay tuned for more popped up makeup products which I’m so excited to show you guys. Bye!

Sharon xoxo
