Recent Beauty Purchases 1

So today I thought I would share a few of the beauty products I've bought over the last few months. I typically stick with the same old brands/products and don't really try new things too often (which is why I like Ipsy, so I can try new things without spending too much!) But these were all items that I had seen in articles that were highly rated, so I thought I would give them all a try!
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet: I really like this moisturizer. I have pretty normal skin, (not too dry and not too oily) but my skin is sensitive. This moisturizer is oil free, lightweight, and does help to reduce redness (#fairskinproblems!). I also like that this is mostly natural and has some organic ingredients. It also has no parabens, sulfates or harmful ingredients!
e.l.f. Makeup Remover Pen: This makeup remover pen is like magic! I never even knew something like this existed, but it has come in handy so many times! Especially when I'm doing something like winged eyeliner, it is so helpful at straightening up any wrong lines or anything. And it's so cheap too! Definitely a must-have!
Maybelline Baby Skin Makeup Primer: This primer is okay. It feels oily, so I'm not really a fan of that, but otherwise it's an okay product. It seems to do a pretty good job at reducing the appearance of pores, but I probably wouldn't purchase this again. If you know of something better, let me know!
e.l.f. Instant Lift Brow Pencil in Taupe: This brow pencil is just okay. I first purchased it it taupe, but it seemed like that was too light, so I purchased it in natural brown, and that is too dark. The shade selection really isn't very good. It's called a pencil but it is more of a crayon. It really didn't last long either! You really don't need to use very much, but it barely lasted a month. It's cheap, at just a couple of dollars, but not really that great of a product.
L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation in Classic IvoryI haven't really used very many other foundations, so I don't have much to compare this to, but I do like this. I bought it in the Classic Ivory, and at first I thought it was a little too light, but it does blend in with my skin tone fine. I do have pretty fair skin and have issues with redness, and this covers that up fine.

It lasts all day for me, and while I do live in a dry climate, I'm not sure it would hold up very well all day if you live in a more humid climate.

I do find that this seems to have kind of a powdery looking finish, so I don't really like that too much, but overall this is a pretty good foundation.

I will add though, if you are looking to buy this in the Classic Ivory and you aren't sure about the color, the actual product is more lighter and whiter than how it looks on the tube itself. The tube makes it look a little darker than it really is. 

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?

  1. Ooh, I am in need of any product that reduces redness, haha! And I wasn't a big fan of Baby Skin when I tried it either.
