Finally got around to using all these amazing products that have been sitting on my desk!
First off my friend, Allie, gave me this MAC Lipglass in Driven by Love
the other night and it is AMAZINGGGGGG. Red lip color is really hard for me to wear and this color is just perfect. Its almost a super super dark hot pink/red. It goes on so smooth and not super thick like it felt in the tube.
Second product I tried was Revlon's new Luxurious Color Diamond Lust Shadow in Night Sky
. I've been wanting to try one of these shadows for a while because they are so sparkly and shimmery but honestly I didn't want to pay $7+ for one eyeshadow. I ended up finding them for ONLY $4 in Harmon and I picked up this shade. You can never have enough black eye shadows! I love this gunmetal sparkly shadow. Its not super pigmented but then again I didn't apply it super thick because I didn't want a super dark eye while wearing such an intense lip color.
Lastly, and hands down my favorite, is Benefit's The Porefessional
. I received a sample of this in my December Birchbox
and I couldn't wait to try it. It is an oil free balm that minimizes the appearance of your pores. While it definitely did minimize my pores (mine are HUGE on my nose) what I liked most about it was that it applied so silky smooth and velvety, which left my skin feeling amazing, perfect canvas for foundation. I will definitely be buying a full sized one!
