It’s been a minute since I last refreshed my makeup drawer and I figured since I’m always at Target, I might as well pop down the beauty aisle and see what’s new. I’m a creature of habit when it comes to my makeup (especially face products) but I’m a little more adventurous when it comes to my lips, nails and eyes– especially at the holidays. I noticed lots of jewel tones like burgundy, cobalt, emerald green and violet as I was browsing. Keep on scrollin’ for a closer look at everything I scooped up!
I haven’t regularly worn nail polish in months (I don’t have the patience to wait for it to dry,) but I noticed essie came out with a new line of quick dry polishes so I figured why not give one a try. Y’all, my nails dried in less than two minutes! I did two coats, but think I would’ve even been fine with one. The formula went on so smooth and the angled brush made application a breeze. Time is precious these days and products that help me save it are like GOLD. I bought the shade “misfit right in” — it’s the prettiest deep shimmery reddish bronze and perfect for this time of year.
Have you ever tried a colored mascara? I think the last time I used one was probably in middle or high school, but I was feeling adventurous and decided to test out L’Oréal’s Voluminous Original mascara in deep green and deep burgundy. So far I’ve been using the deep green and love it paired with jewel tone shadows. I’ve also really been liking these eyeliner and brow pencil!
Let’s talk lips! If you’re looking for a long-wearing statement lip shade that will look great in holiday pictures and won’t transfer when you’re eating or smooching your loved ones, then you need this combo: Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon + NYX Lip Lingerie XXL Liquid Lipstick. Both can be worn alone, but I actually like them layered. I apply the crayon first as a base and then add a coat of liquid lipstick— basically to seal in the look and prevent transfer. Both formulas dry with a matte finish, but the liquid lipstick is incredibly long-lasting and actually accentuates the natural shape of your lips. It comes in 24 shades and can last up to 16 hours!
Big thank you to Target for sponsoring this post!
