Okay better late than never, here comes monthly roundup #3! So the holiday season is approaching and makeup brands are releasing new products like crazy. Boy, I’m so excited to make a holiday wishlist post! My schedule is hectic as usual since I do work in the hospital during weekends, but during my off-duty days I try to catch up on some series and YT videos.
Several brands dropped their Holiday palettes last month (and it was just September!) and now I’m confused on which of them I’m going to pick up. First to make a scene was UrbanDecay. After news of discontinuing the original Naked palette, there came a leak from Instagram with regards to the upcoming NakedCherry palette and everyone went crazy, including me. Then Too Faced released their Gingerbread Spice palette which looked oh so yummy! Come on, with a packaging like that, who could resist buying it? Colourpop also announced their collaboration with Disney and dropped their Disney Degisner Collection last September 28, few days after Anastasia Beverly Hills launched their smoky metallic palette Sultry.
The worse thing than the unbearable summer heat is the sticky feeling of my makeup melting and sliding down my face. Even though most of the makeup products I’m using are relatively long-lasting, sometimes there are just limits to their longevity. That’s why I felt the need to resort to setting spray. If there’s a product that could make my makeup last the entire day without any touchups, I’ll definitely try it. When it comes to setting sprays it, (based on reviews), it seems like Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is the gold standard. Let’s see what’s the fuss is about…
Product Description: Is makeup meltdown ruining your midnight mojo? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power.
