Makeup Bag Monday

makeup bag monday
Happy Monday! Welcome to my newly relaunched blog and a new series- Makeup Bag Monday. I've modeled this series after the amazing Serein Wu's MBM. Each Sunday I will pick out a few items from my makeup collection and test them out for the entire week. The next week I will give a thorough review of each item and let you know how it performs and if I think it's worthy of your hard earned money. As a makeup lover with hoarding tendencies, I am excited to use this series as a means to test out makeup items I've purchased but haven't used in a while.

For my first Makeup Bag Monday, I'm going with all drugstore items.

makeup bag mondays hard candy dark spot correcting primer
I'll be testing out the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Dark Spot Correcting Primer as a base item. My skin is generally normal but with the changing seasons it is becoming quite dry in some places. I also have some acne issues and dark spots from post inflammatory hyperpigmentation- so my hope is that this primer will even out my skin tone a bit while providing a nice hydration boost for my skin.

The claims:
  • blends easily
  • flawless natural finish
  • reduced shine
  • won't clog pores
  • lasts all day
I'm excited to test this out! I remember really enjoying it, so I hope it works well for me.

Superstay Better Skin Concealer by Maybelline

I was using this for a bit back in the spring. I realized that it was a bit ashy looking on me so I decided to put it away until I lightened up a bit (thanks winter!).

Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow- Al Burgundi (no longer available)

I was looking for a perfect burgundy tone when I ordered this online last fall. I have worn it once- I don't remember thinking very highly or lowly of it.

Elf Smudge Pot-Ain't That Sweet

This is new to my makeup collection. I couldn't resist the look of this pinky shimmery shadow, or the price- just three bucks!

Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lipstick - I Can Bare it All

I've been loving the look of nude lips lately. Excited to see if this is long lasting and (more importantly) comfortable on the lips!

Next Monday I'll have full reviews on each product!
