I was at ULTA, and these new Physicians Formula Bronze Booster palettes caught my eye. Physicians Formula is just one of those brands whose presentation I think is amazing, but I’m never tempted to buy their products. They are famous for their powders and bronzers, two makeup items I’m not too excited about. But because I’ve been into contouring lately and I always want new highlighters, I figure these palettes could be a good investment.
I haven’t tried the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, but I’m fascinated with the idea. I struggle with redness and hyperpigmentation from acne. In the mornings, I don’t want to spend a ton of time trying to cover my skin issues, so I use medium-to-full coverage foundations on most days. Shelling out $40 for a foundation mixer seemed excessive. Thus, I hopped on the train when NYX launched their Total Control Drop Foundation.
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.
