Everything in my pouch!
Pacifica Blushious in Coconut & Rose Infused Cheek Color in Wildrose ($12) There’s so much to love about this, including #1 – full-size!
#2 – Unicorn.
#3 -100% vegan. Cruelty-free. Formulated without carmine, FD&C color, parabens and petroleum.
#4 – a pink-undertoned neutral blush that’s super pretty on, with a touch of shimmer. Swatch below!
Squeal! It’s my favorite concealer now in an illuminating version! It provides max coverage without ever getting cakey, and just erases my dark circles. This was in medium, and I think I need a lighter shade; I’ll get a full tube of it to try out after I use up my current Bye Bye!
Temptu Smooth & Matte Primer ($8.66) This is a nice basic little primer! It’s lightweight and really provides that smooth poreless finish – you can wear it underneath your makeup, or just on bare skin for a no-makeup day!
Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel ($4.80) This no-acid peel is the kind that you apply on, it bonds with the dry skin cells on your face, you let it dry just a tad, and then you roll it off in little balls. It’s always a little gross and I’m never sure if it really does anything, but I think they’re quite fun to use!
Trust Fund Beauty Lipgasm Lip Gloss in Method to the Madness ($22) This full-size gloss is totally unsticky and a beautiful anyone can wear it pinky nude color. It’s so shiny and gorgeous and just looks great on.
Top – Blush; Middle – Concealer; Bottom – Lip Gloss (excuse the red mark, if I touch my skin I get marks!).
I estimated the value of my bag this month at about $52. I think the Trust Fund gloss is overpriced, but that’s the value, which is fantastic for a $10 bag. I loved all five of my products this month – it was one of my best bags ever!
