You ever have products that you own but never really got around to using? Then one day you do and you wonder how you got through life without them. That may be a tiny bit dramatic but you know I’m all for the dramatic. This list is those products that I rediscovered in my makeup collection and now are on heavy rotation.
The Top 5
What it does: It’s all in the name. This coconut infused primer claims to extend the wear of your makeup while smoothing out your skin.
Why I love it: I got this first as a sample size and randomly decided to use it one day. OMG, it felt like a moisturizer and it some ways was. It left my skin hydrated and blended nicely into it without leaving that white residue other primers do. This is definitely a great primer to use in the winter time. My foundation went on top so smoothly.
What it does: It’s a gel formula that adds radiance, hydrates and veils imperfections with a natural matte finish
Why I love it: Did you read what it does? I was raving about this on snapchat recently because of the flawless finish it gave my skin. It also photographs so beautifully. If you were wondering what foundation I was wearing in my photos lately, this is the answer. When paired with the coconut primer, it’s a dream combination.
My Color: 84 Cocoa- Medium
What it does: Carves out those cheekbones, baby!
Why I love it: The entire kit is great especially because I prefer a cream contour over powder. I just find creams blend easier and feel lighter on the skin.The range of shades she provides in this kit makes me want to sing. However, I love this kit simply for the shade Carob, it gives such a nice defined contour. Makes me so happy.
My Color: The kit I use is Deep. Favorite shade is Carob.
What it does: Provides a subtle glass like glow to the lips
Why I love it: It’s such a pretty nude for a range of skin tones. Since it’s winter I’ve been gravitating towards lipglosses more over lipsticks. This gloss looks really natural and my lips look super moisturized and healthy. That’s a definite win in this winter weather.
What it does: Make your eyes look like they been kissed by a celebrity makeup artist heavyweight. Heyyyy Mario!
Why I love it: In all honesty the color, Bronx, made me fall in love with this palette. The colors have a soft texture that makes them blend really easily but still retain a high pigmentation. The colors pair so well that you can mix any of them and get a bomb eye look.
Favorite Color: Bronx
This was a limited edition palette and is sold out. However, Anastasia usually releases the single shadow colors for sale a few months after the palette is released. You may be able to still snag one on EBAY
