Happy Saturday my Fabulous friends!! The sun finally came out after a few days of gray gloomy weather! So, off to the nail salon I went. Today, I’m in a pink kinda mood so I got my nails “did” in pink….see. For those of you who want to know what nail polish this is, it’s by OPI and the color is Suzi’s Hungary Again!
To celebrate my pink mood, I brought out these two babies right here. They are the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in the Crush (warm matte pink) shade and Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Metallic Peony.
First, let me talk about Urban Decay’s blush and how much I’m loving it today. I’m the biggest sucker for blush and Urban Decay’s new Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush is a huge reason for me to pinch myself (no need to pinch the cheeks though because they’re already pink-y today).
This blush is very sheer, has a smooth consistency, and satin-matte finish (not really shimmery). It’s also extremely blendable. While it’s on the thinner side, it doesn’t take much of the product to give a ton of pigment. If you want to kick it up a notch and have a more dramatic look, you can pack it on plenty.
I have to say that overall this blush is Fab! I picked it up at Ulta for $26 (ouch!). But, one look at this pink vibrant pop of bold color and I couldn’t resist.
I like matte powder blushes because my skin is a bit on the oily side and the matte powder blushes prevent my skin from looking shiny (no cream blushes for this chick right here!).
Next up is this baby right here from Too Faced. I seriously had a hard time picking a color for myself because this lipstick comes in so many beautiful colors! I ultimately ended up getting the Metallic Peony color which is purrrfect for me.
This lipstick is thick and creamy, dries on the lips without being too drying, and lasts a long time. It goes on like a gloss and dries with a matte finish. There’s so many good things to say about this lipstick! I love that it comes in a tube, it’s long lasting, you don’t need to use a lip liner, the velvet tip is so soft and provides a precise application, and I am absolutely in love this color! It’s like a soft pink rose with a burst of metallic color. I am definitely going to be picking up more of these lipsticks.
Pretty in pink? What products do you reach for? Do you have any of these products on your beauty wish list?
