Good drugstore highlighters are hard to come by, especially for fair-skinned beauty lovers. Most of the time, the shade selection doesn’t go light enough for the product to be a true highlight. You end up with a weird, noticeable colored streak on your cheeks, and nobody wants that. So when Milani came out with a bunch of new highlighting product, I picked one of the Strobelights to see if it could be a good drugstore highlight for people with a skin tone like me. Let’s take a look!
For a long time, I’ve been opposed to cushion foundations, because the thought of putting a dewy foundation on my oily, acne-prone skin horrifies me. Plus, cushions are usually more expensive than regular foundations in the same brand. But when I saw some good-to-stellar reviews of the new Maybelline Dream Cushion on Youtube, I decided to give it a try. Let’s see how it held up against my problematic skin.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is the most hyped about blush at the drugstore, if not of all time. It gives a subtle, beautiful glow to the cheeks, and without me knowing it, it became my go-to blush last year. Unfortunately, sometimes, I think it runs too orange on my fair skintone. I prefer warm pink blushes, so when I saw that Milani came out with a new shade in their Baked Blush line, I was excited thinking that Bella Bellini might be the pink version of Luminoso. I could not be more wrong.
I was browsing through the New Arrivals on the ULTA website when I stumbled across this new collection. Warm nudes are just a staple in my collection, and I can never have enough, especially if they are from the drugstore. These Inti-Matte nudes come in the same formula as the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte lipstick formula. The shade range is to die for; you have everything from ultra-nude peaches to warm chocolate brown nudes. Let’s see some swatches.
For a while, I wavered between being content with my coral MUG eyeshadows and purchasing this palette. In the end, the pretty packaging and promotional images sucked me into buying. Peach has become one of my favorite makeup colors to wear, and since Kylie Jenner is releasing a peach palette, it’s officially trending. (Pantone should’ve really reconsidered on Greenery as the color of the year for 2017.) Let’s see if Too Faced blew it out of the water with the Sweet Peach, or if there’s room for other brands to capitalize on the trend.
