Like a lot of you, I got a ton of stuff in the recent beauty sales — let’s start a little open thread on what you got that you’re liking!
One of the hits for me was this NARS Powermatte lipstick in Starwoman. I tend to be really sensitive to overly drying lipsticks — but this one is a gorgeous, deep red, it’s easy to apply, it lasts a long time, and it’s really comfortable to wear. I’m really happy with it! (It’s $28 at Nordstrom, Sephora and Ulta.)
Something I like a lot but am struggling with whether to keep is the Armani fluid highlighter, which I actually got in two colors: a very light pink (#7) and a warmer pink (#8). I’ve been on the hunt for a new highlighter since my old favorites (Benefit, Glossier) have been annoying me, and I really like the Armani highlighters — but they’re $42, which feels expensive, and I can’t decide which color I like best. Problems, problems. I’m leaning towards the pinky highlighter because I like it high on my cheekbones, but I don’t like it on my forehead and other highlighting areas.
Other products I’m keeping are the Fenty Gloss Bomb Cream Color Drip Lip Cream (Mauve Wive$), Sephora’s Jelly Melt Glossy Lip Tint (only $5! Samba) and Sephora’s Melting Lip Clicks Lip Balm (Blackberry, now out of stock, alas). I’m returning Dior Lip Glow Oil (goopy) and Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick (loved, but not enough to pay $34).
