Makeup Bag Monday #2



Last week I started Makeup Bag Monday - inspired by Serein Wu's series- on my blog and YouTube channel.

Makeup Bag Week 1

All of the items I've used this past week were drugstore.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Dark Spot Correcting Primer $8

This definitely doesn't correct my stubborn dark spots, but I love that it provides a boost of hydration and radiance before my foundation.

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Fresh Complexion Foundation $9

I've been searching for a holy grail drugstore foundation and it was hiding in my makeup collection all along. This provides a medium buildable coverage and a natural finish. This oil-free foundation wears all day if you set it with a powder and its extremely affordable too! 

Superstay Better Skin Concealer by Maybelline $9

I wish I could love this, its long-wearing, full coverage, and doesn't crease under my eyes, Unfortunately the deepest shade (deep) is still too light for my taste so I can't wear it without adding some contour to counter the intense highlighting. If this is available in a shade that matches your skin tone I would recommend it. 

Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow- Al Burgundy (no longer available) $2

This is a lovely eyeshadow! Not at all powdery or stiff, its a perfect texture, easily blendable, highly pigmented and long-wearing. I'm bummed the velvet matt shadows are no longer available, but I will definitely be picking up more items from this brand.

Elf Smudge Pot-Ain't That Sweet $3

This was a wee bit disappointing. I wore this sheered put on my eyes and it lasted throughout the day without any major hiccups. Whenever I tried to increase the opacity of this cream shadow, it looked extremely patchy. I did enjoy using this as a highlighter, it has a purple pink shift which makes it a really fun/unique addition to my highlighter collection! I will continue to wear this on days when I want a quick all over the eye shade or a unique highlight.

Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lipstick - I Can Bare it All $3

This color doesn't look the best on my skin tone, and it tends to apply quite patchily, also it is extremely drying. Not a fan of this specific liquid to matte lipstick, I've tried others by Wet N Wild that I enjoy but this particular shade is definitely a miss.

This Week’s Makeup Bag

I'm in the process of moving this week, so I didn't want to commit to too much product testing. I do have a couple of new items to test out that I'm really excited about!
