One of my favourite songs on Future’s HNDRXX is his song with The Weeknd, called Coming Out Strong. This MOTD was inspired by that song, in particular by my favourite line in the song that says “They said I couldn’t reach Mars, so I turned to a star”. When I think of turning into a literal star, I think of a lot of glow and brightness, and I thought it would be fun to translate that into a makeup look. I also got a bunch of new Colourpop shadows, so I really wanted to incorporate them into this look. I haven’t done a MOTD in a while, and it was fun to use new products, as well as products I already own, but don’t use on an everyday basis. Kind of challenging, but I am so pleased with how this look turned out. If you’re curious to see how the look turned out, hit that read more!
Before you read this, just know that I am aware that I need to invest in a better camera to capture my pictures. My cell phone just doesn’t cut it when I need to zoom in and showcase the colors I used. I’m sorry!!!! Okay, continue.
I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been able to play with my palettes. Maybe it’s cause I don’t normally wear eyeshadow to school, which is where I spend the majority of my time… Either way, this look is the result of boredom, and also because I wanted to practice my blending skills.
Hey yall! I know I’ve been M.I.A for the past week but I have been busy shopping. Seriously. I’ve never done a haul post before so I figured I’d do one now of all the things I’ve bought over the past week or so. I’ve also tried most of the products out already so I’ll also include a mini review (and if you want to see a full review on any of the products then let me know, although I most likely will be writing some). Enjoy!
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – 675 Infatuation
I believe this colour is part of their new shades for the collection, I could be wrong though. I picked this up because you all know I love a nice dramatic dark lip and I don’t have a deep berry shade yet so I figured why not. As far as the actual product itself… Meh.
CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipstick – 577 Spiced Latte
I thought the idea of applying the colour, then applying a moisturizing and shiny top coat was a cool idea. Plus it claimed to last 24 hours which caught my attention. I obviously didnt wear it for 24 hours but I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that the colour really did last all day, only having to reapply the top coat. Only downside is that I personally don’t like the way the colour looks on it’s own, so if I ever lost the topcoat, I probably wouldn’t ever use the actual lipstick again.
Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow – 002 Hourglass Beige
This caught my eye because I thought it would be a really pretty highlight shade. It’s very light (it is an iridescent finish) so I use it as a “base” for my actual highlight for an extra pop of glow. I haven’t used it as a shadow yet but I imagine it would also look amazing.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – 25 Medium
I wanted to try out a new concealer and I had only heard good things about this concealer, which is why I picked it up. Plus I love all the products I’ve tried from the Fit Me line and this was no exception. So creamy, really easy to blend and is really good for highlighting!
essence All About Matt! Compact Powder
I have no idea why they spelled “matte” the way they did. I also don’t know why I bought this lol. I mean I really don’t need a mattifying powder right now. I also keep forgetting to use this and test it out so… But I really like the simplistic packaging and the design on the powder haha
Pretty standard, I just really needed a new brush head for my Clarisonic. I got the sensitive skin one.
Too Faced Melted Matte liquid lipstick – Drop Dead Red
Yes. I did it. I bought it. I won’t lie though, I think the formula for this colour may be different than Cool Girl? I don’t know. I’ve only wore it once and I wore it with some lip chap underneath so maybe it altered the way it stayed on my lips, but I accidentally brushed my finger on my lip and it smeared the product (which is something that I’ve never experienced with Cool Girl) and at the end of the day it just looks like a mess. LOL maybe next time I try it, I’ll like it better (I mean I better if I paid $25 for it…)
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops – Sunlight
YOU. GUYS. I saved the best product for last. JGJFGAJGULARY. I literally screamed when I swatched this on my hand. This seriously looks like liquid metal (but if you’ve watched videos on this, then you already knew that). If you loove love love strobing and having a glow that reaches to outer space GIRL YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE. I plan on doing a full review on this later on in life but for now just know that I love this. I can’t stop looking at it!
H&M Ribbed Body Suit
I already have a black version of this same body suit and I wanted it in white. Honestly if you look at my closet, you will notice that I usually have a black and white version of the same shirt. I clearly love colour.
H&M Long Tank
I’m sorry, I hate shopping for clothes and that reflects in how bad I am at describing what an article of clothing is. But yall get the idea. This looks like a long dress from the front, but there are very deep slits in the sides which can hide shorts. Or you can wear it with pants I guess. I don’t know what I’m saying.
And that concludes my haul! Hope you enjoyed looking at all my latest purchases, let me know if you’ve picked up something lately that you’ve been loving. As always, thanks for taking the time out to read this and see ya around.
