I did a little beauty haul over the weekend and I’m really excited to share the products I picked up! I had gone to check out some new launches by Clinique – the new Pop Lip Color + Primer, new shades of Cheek Pop and Contouring Blush. Instead I ended up picking up some bits from NARS and Shu Uemura along with the Pop Lip from Clinique 🙂
Shu Uemura POREraser Under Makeup Base (Deep Beige)
This is a tinted makeup base that helps control shine and minimize the look of pores. The texture is very interesting – it comes out like a airy foam and getS a bit more fluid when you spread it on the skin. It has SPF 35 and PA+++ protection. I think this would be great in the summer! This is my first purchase from Shu Uemura and I’m really excited to try this out.
NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation (Barcelona)
Another product I picked up with summer in mind. This is a high coverage foundation that feels very light on the skin. Its more on the matte side and I’ve heard good things about the longevity of the formula. I’ve never tried NARS foundations before so took a little time to match my shade. I tried out 3 – Stromboli, Syracuse and Barcelona and Barcelona matched me the best.
NARS Dual Intensity Blush (Fervor)
I had plans of picking up the Clinique Cheek Pop in one of the new shades but I found only a single shade at the counter I visited. The NARS Dual Intensity blushes on the other hand looked very appealing and I headed straight for the shade Panic which had a hot coral and bright pink. Next to it was this little number – Fervor with a bronzy plum and a light peachy pink and it looks really subtle and beautiful on the cheeks. So I ended up with this one instead of the very vibrant Panic.
Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer (Plum Pop)
The Pop Lip is the big launch from Clinique this spring and I have been hearing a lot of good things about these. I had my eyes on 2 shades – Plum Pop and Punch Pop. Plum Pop is a beautiful plummy pink that would be great for everyday wear. Punch Pop was really pretty too but I have loads of fuchsia shades now so I skipped it. These lipstick have a creamy smooth texture and great pigmentation!
