Hi everyone! It’s Giada here, the founder of GlamObserver. I want to start this new series so every first day of the month I’ll share with you what’s in my makeup bag.
I usually opt for a natural makeup look, but this doesn’t mean that I have only few products and that I stick with all of them all the time. There are some products that I love and buy all over again but I like to change very often the products I use to try something different so I’ll talk about new products every month.
Next month I’ll also tell you what I tried , what I liked and what I didn’t like during the last month.
New foundation → Mac Studio Fix
Powder → Make Up Forever HD powder. I’ve used this powder for a year now. I always buy the travel size because, even if I use it everyday,the price is of course lower than the normal size and the quantity is enough to last a year! It’s transparent and it’s like you’re not wearing it but it removes the shiny effect and fixes the makeup.
Eye pencil → Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon . I’ve used it for some months. I bought it because it’s waterproof so I used it also this summer in the pool and it lasted. I like it at the moment but I ‘ll try something different for the next month. I use a brown pencil instead of the black because it’s more natural so it’s perfect for the daily makeup. I use the shade (Earth) Quake
Eyebrow pencil → KIKO Automatic Pencil. I bought it already 4 times in a row! If you’re looking for a good and cheap brow pencil go for it.
Blush → NYX Cream Blush in TickledCB13. What I like about this blush is that it’s creamy and the color is basically almost the same of the famous NARS orgasm blush. It’s easy to use both for a natural everyday look that for the night. You just need to dose the quantity to get the different looks.
Concealer → MUFE Ultra HD invisible cover concealer. I’m obsessed with it, it covers my dark circles and it’s like I have nothing on. HD and invisible is the perfect description for this concealer. I use the n. Y33.
Bronzer → Hoola from Benefit. Bought it 3 times in a row, I love it! It’s matte and it last all day, plus the color it’s not orange, it’s a really delicate natural brown.
Mascara → Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara from Too Faced. I really like the effect of this mascara. My lashes are voluminous and there are not grains. I confirm you that it’s waterproof. I used this mascara during the summer and it’s definitely water resistant. I’ll for sure buy it again next summer but I’ll try something different for the next month.
Last month I had in my bag the Estee Lauder Double Wear Cushion Stick foundation and unfortunately I have to say that I don’t like it. First of all because the cushion broken after the first week ( and I’m a very delicate person) and then it causes me blemishes (that’s definitely the worst part) and it’s oily. I really liked the packaging and the idea of the stick cushion and also I’ve read lots of positive reviews about the double wear foundation so I’m really disappointed about this one. I though that I’d have added it among my favorites but unfortunately not.
