When the season starts to change, I tend to start trying out new beauty products. The cool weather usually makes me want to opt for a full coverage foundation and a my dramatic eye combo. Nordstrom is offering a couple of products I’ve been wanting to out at a great price right now (eye shadow sticks at an exclusive value and foundation 15% off). So after giving a few things a try, I thought I would share what works for me… and a couple of my tried and true products as well.
I have seen amazing reviews for these Bobbi Brown long wear cream eye shadow sticks so when I saw 4 of them offered in a travel size for $30 ($70 value), I thought now was the time. Since I like a more moody, dramatic eye in the fall, these shadow sticks make a subtle smokey eye super easy! I like to line my outer corner lash lines in shade ‘taupe’ and add a pop to my inner corner with shade ‘vanilla’.
I have been trying out full coverage foundations at different price points the last few weeks and the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear is worth every penny (especially since it’s 15% off right now). It has great coverage, doesn’t feel drying on the skin after all day wear and doesn’t settle into my fine lines. But, my favorite part: it’s transfer resistant, so it’s perfect to wear under your mask! I have shade: 220 Buff.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder lives up to it’s name. I have used this product for years and as you can see, this one is well loved. I apply it under my eyes to not only set my concealer, but also brighten my under eye. I love that I can count on it to keep my makeup in place all day long and from settling in my fine lines. I am in the shade: 1 Fair.
Another product that I go back to time and time again is the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lip liner and lipstick. Nordstrom has a few exclusive sets right now for a great price, like THIS one with the stick, liner and 2 glosses in the shade Pillow Talk. I think this shade is universally flattering– the perfect deep pinky nude. The liner is great for enhancing your lip shape, the stick is matte but not cakey looking on the lips and the glosses are shiny looking without feeling super tacky and sticky.
