Hello everyone! With Spring right around the corner, I wanted to pick up a few new makeup products that I thought would be seasonally appropriate! I have used all of these products a few times so this will be a mini first impression post as well!
The first two things I picked up were from the brand Milani, and it is their Baked Bronzer in the shade Dolce and the Color Statement Lipstick in their shade Coral Addict. I am very excited about these two products because they are my first purchases from Milani! I have heard great things about this brand and have been wanting to try some of their stuff for a while.
I knew I wanted to get a bronzer for Spring that was a little softer and slightly luminous. Kathleen Lights mentioned this bronzer in her most recent favorites video, and since I will buy anything that girl says is good, I decided to get this one! After using this bronzer several times already, and I must say that I am truly in love. It has the perfect undertone for my skin and does give off a nice Springtime shimmer on the skin. I like that this product goes on very light and that I am able to build it up. Because I am pretty pale, I am always weary off super pigmented bronzers.
I also knew that for Spring I wanted to get a coral lipstick. Most (okay, okay… all) of my lipsticks are in the mauve/nude pink/plum shade family that is definitely my favorite, but also my comfort zone. I wanted to be a bit more bold and get something that was slightly adventurous… at least for me. This is definitely a bright coral, but I think it is so pretty and has such a nice sheen to it. I have worn this lipstick just once so far and I really like it! It didn’t fade as much through out the day as I expected it to, which was nice. And when it did fade, it was in a nice way, not in a gross crumbly way. I will definitely be picking up more Milani lipsticks in the future.
Lastly, I decided to try a new mascara and went with Maybelline Lash Sensational, which I know is a fan favorite!
After using this mascara a few times, I can already tell it is going to be a staple of mine. My holy grail mascara is still the L’Oreal Telescopic in Carbon Black, but the Lash Sensational adds just a little more volume than the Telescopic – which is perfect for when I want a tad more drama. It also does an excellent job at lengthening my lashes and keeping them curled – which are my top two priorities in a mascara. I typically do about two coats, and it can get a little clumpy, but nothing unmanageable. The wand is pretty thick which I thought would make it hard to coat my lower lashes, but it also has a slight curve so it was actually really easy and I didn’t end up with product under my lower lashes (a small miracle!).
