November Hits & Misses8:37 PM
It's time for another monthly Hits & Misses roundup! This month includes plenty of lip products to keep those puckers nice and moisturized during the frigid cold. I woke up this morning to snow on the ground, which may be our first tangible snowfall this year. Burrr, I'm so glad I don't have to drive a terrible distance through bad road conditions anymore like I had to for my last job!
In the video I also talk about my new blush obsession (seriously) which you can check out below:
Blistex Deep Renewal Lip Balm
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Exposed
Jeune d' age Organics eye cream
Lancome Le French Touch Absolu lipstick
Darkness Lashes in WXOS (drugstore options Maybelline / Modlash / Ardell)
For some reason I feel like I have been drawn toward more natural makeup lately with the shorter lashes and neutral-colored blush. It's so weird because I've always been a pinky-peachy type of blush person! Maybe the weather has also caused me to be lazy with my makeup and just grab my go-to favorites but I must say, it will be very difficult in the future for me to find an obsession beyond the Naked palettes, Tarte blush in Exposed, and Revlon Lip Butters.
Speaking of Revlon Lip Butters, I've heard some comments from people saying that it dries their lips out (Maybe similar to how the Lancome one dried my lips out?) after a couple hours of wear. I haven't had this problem personally but I just wanted to bring up the possibility in case it's been an issue for you. Everyone's chemistry is a bit different so feel free to have an open discussion in the comments.
I also wanted to bring up a lip balm that others love but I've actually had a terrible time with: EOS lip balms.
Oh and for the Tarte blush in Exposed, I have swatches here and used it in this SNSD The Boys tutorial. Don't let online pictures fool you (such as this stock photo from Ulta above), this is a neutral pink blush, not a bronzer brown! I don't think I've had a blush obsession this strong since I first fell in love with my dearly discontinued Rock & Republic blushes, may they rest in peace.
Let me know if you've had any recent makeup obsessions. I've had so many recently and I want to know I'm not the only one. Leave it in the comments! ;)
