Re: Fall 2016 Makeup Haul

While walking around our neighborhood with my sister and baby niece, we attempted to stop by Shoppers Drugmart for a few minutes. Well, a few minutes turned into almost an hour… I saw that Maybelline and Rimmel were having a sale on some items I haven’t tried before. So I grabbed a few items for fall.

Decided to save the Joe Fresh eye shadow in Ice for another post in case you’re wondering where the white eye shadow on the bottom right is from. 

First up is the Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation in 220 Natural Beige (Normal to Dry range). One of my friends posted a video a few months ago, talking about this product so I wanted to give it a try. I normally wear powder foundation because I find liquid foundation heavy at times. So, I was pleasantly surprised that this foundation felt weightless. It also blended well with a sponge or foundation brush and it has SPF18! In terms of colour match, I find that the foundation matches my skin pretty well, although I did notice that the formula oxidizes a tad darker. Also, the foundation is light-medium coverage so if you’re looking for a more full coverage foundation, this product is not for you. I would say it’s long wearing, especially if you set the foundation with powder and a setting spray.

I tried this product a few times and I like that it’s pigmented. It is also kiss proof, but can be very drying on the lips. It is a liquid lipstick after all so that’s understandable. You can layer the product to get a more opaque finish, but the product is not long wearing and you’ll see the liquid lipstick crumbling over time. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend getting this product even if it is kiss proof. Crumbling lips ain’t cute! Haha 😉

IMG_0021.jpgFrom Maybelline again, I got an Expert Wear quad eyeshadow in 220 Chai Latte. It’s not a new product launch, I simply wanted to give the quad a try. The copper eye shadow on the top right corner attracted me to this quad since I’ve been looking for a similar colour. Honestly, the eye shadows are okay in terms of pigmentation. You will probably have to layer a few times to get the true colour of the eye shadow. It’s a versatile quad that has 3 shimmers and 1 matte eye shadows so you can easily use the darker shade if you want to try a smokey eye with a hint of copper tone.

IMG_0020.jpgBaked Highlighter from Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics in Bellissima, was a product I got from one of my ipsy glam bags. It’s a very pigmented highlighter that has a slight hint of peachy pink. A beautiful highlighter for your cheekbones! You don’t need a lot of the product on your brush since it picks up pretty well.

Finally, my L’Oreal love affair continues with the Tint Caresse in Lily Blossom. I got this baby from my dad since he flew back from the Philippines for a couple of weeks. It’s actually an item I have wanted to try since last year. Unfortunately, they were out of stock since it was a new product launch. L’Oreal doesn’t carry this product in North America so it wasn’t something I can buy here.

Right of the bat, the packaging is gorgeous! It has a sponge applicator and the product is deposited from the cap. You’ll hear a little click once you unscrew the cap. From there, the product is immediately deposited on the sponge. I wanted to try this product because despite of it being a lip product, the lip tint formula is powder. I thought that was really cool and innovative! After trying this product a few times, the application process is easy and the formula is not drying on the lips. It’s not a long-wearing product so you will probably have to reapply, especially if you like to eat as much as I do. 🙂 From what I gathered, the product is supposed to help you get a gradient lip effect (a popular trend in Korea). If you have very pigmented lips like myself, you can add a little bit of foundation to cancel out the colour.

That’s it for my Fall Makeup Haul! What are some of your fall makeup favourites? Share with us by leaving a comment below!

Always,
