Nordstrom Beauty Haul + Share and Giveaway Week
I am beyond excited to share the week with these beauties! We are hosting a stories only giveaway with a and each day one of us will be sharing a haul from a store we love.
Yesterday Tia shared her Lulu’s finds and an additional three ways to style them!
And today, Since I do a ton of makeup reviews I though I’d start off with a Nordstrom Beauty Haul.
I’m going to jump right into my first purchase, which is more of a a re-purchase, and its the:
Giorgio Armani – Luminous Silk Foundation:
My shade is 3.75 – Fair/Cool Undertone
This foundation is my holy grail esp for events! Recently while reviewing another foundation I got a huge rash (which is actually the reason I couldn’t do a full makeup look instead).
Most long lasting foundations usually dry out my skin and make it look awful. However, this one has a perfect Dewy finish and feels SO light!
It’s medium coverage but buildable and not cakey at all (believe me I’ve put it to the test)
The last thing I want to say is that often I find foundations regardless of the cost will oxidize but I feel like this one never oxidizes , if you’ve tried it I’d love to hear your thoughts on that!
Next is these two Charlotte Tilbury products I’ve been eyeing for weeks and finally got my hands on!
Charlotte Tilbury – Palette of Pops
Prime (top left) – light champagne shade – very brightening
Enhance (top right) – Shimmering rose gold shade that would look gorgeous on the lids
Pop (bottom left) – Coppery rose gold .
Smoke (bottom right) – This shade is a deep warm shimmering bronze shade with hints of pink and gold shimmer. The name says it all, it’s a nice for a smokey eye look
What I love about Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadows is that they are beautiful and have amazing texture! They’re so easy to blend so even if you’re not a pro you can still pull off a Victoria secret look in minutes!
The formulas are also why I also wanted to try out this blush:
Cheek to Chic Blush also by Charlotte
And I got it in this peachy color called Ecstasy which I feel suits my skin best. It has two colors inside both coral one with a more pink hue and the other with a bit more gold shimmer (meant to go on the apples of your cheek). This blush has a satin finish and gives you a nice flush that isn’t overpowering.
Tom Ford – Gloss Luxe Moisturizing Lipgloss – 13/Impulse
I found this lip gloss through @emilyanngemma from the sweetest thing blog. She recommended it in the shade Crystalline which she pairs with her fav liner/lipstick.
I’m all about the pink shades so I went with Impulse and to be honest its a lot more sheer than I expected however, it is absolutely perfection for the summer. The color is like I mentioned a sheer subtly warm pale pink and can be worn on top of your favorite lipstick or alone and it leaves your lips looking juicy and plump, I’m obsessed!
For the eyes I always go waterproof even during summer. Not just because I’m a cryer but because my eyes are so sensitive and if my makeup starts running It’ll be a shit show in seconds!
To achieve a summer proof eye look I got:
YSL – Dessin du Regard Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil – 01/Black
I love that it comes with a sharpener, I I mean nothing more annoying than a new pencil breaking and having to wait to use it again, so this was an instant win! So far I’ve worn it a full day and it looks almost intact for at least 5 hours!
For mascara I went with Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara – 10/Noir
And so far it works and isn’t clumping but I hate reporting on eye makeup & foundations too soon, so stay tuned ?? I’ll report back on this one as well as the mascara soon!
Nars – The Multiple Stick – South Beach
A multipurpose stick – that helps accentuate the eyes, cheeks, lips, and body.
I got it in two colors and while I loved both esp as a blush/highlight I have to admit my intention was to use South Beach as a bronzer stick but I don’t think it’s going to cut it. I have to admit that although I did love the actual product, the packaging will not work too well for me! Already under light for filming the stick was starting to melt (too much product comes off too). Unfortunately for that reason alone I don’t think i’d re purchase. I do want to say that is the ONLY reason.
Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm – 001 /Pink Glow
A light pink balm that when combined with the warmth of your lips slightly changes, so the exact color can very on everyone – basically an elevated lip balm and summer must have!
