Essiebutton – her mentions of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty ($26) and the Revlon Lip Gloss in Berry Allure ($7.99) had me adding them to my wishlist immediately, and it wasn’t long after finding out about these two products that I ended up adding them to my collection. The Tarte blush is absolutely beautiful on, not at all what you’d expect from the bright color in the pan – it quickly became one of my favorite blushes for winter. The lip gloss is a completely wearable berry shade that I am in love with. I know “berries” are usually worn in fall/winter, but I’ve been sporting this shade year round.
Next up is the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle ($32), a product I knew I had to have after seeing it on From Roses and Ghostparties (and a million other beauty blogs, haha). This is the best highlighter I’ve ever tried, and I can see why so many bloggers lose it over this stuff. It’s my go-to item for adding a dewy glow to my skin, and the incredible quality has me itching to try the MAC MSF Natural.
The Rimmel London Lip Liner in Eastend Snob ($5.99) first popped up in my Pinterest feed, which then led me to Amelia’s blog, and I knew this was definitely a product to check out after seeing her photos and swatches. I wrote a little more in-depth about this lip liner here, but to sum it up quickly – this is a great drugstore find, and it’s perfect for creating that full, pouty, Kylie Jenner-esque neutral lip.
The last product I have to mention is the first legit makeup item I ever owned – the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette ($54). This isn’t an item I technically bought (it was actually a Christmas present from my wonderful mom), but I had it on my Christmas list because I had seen it on practically every beauty blog ever. ^_^ This palette created a turning point in my relationship with makeup – I started learning new techniques and trying new looks because I had such a great array of colors, and I fully believe it’s what inspired my newfound obsession with neutrals.
