I am on a no-buy/low-buy so there are few new products I’ll be receiving. However, there were a couple things I needed from Darling Girl before I went on my no-buy and a new company that is making its debut that I just had to get behind.
- Darling Girl: I am in love with their Primped and Primed primer. To me it is like they blended Urban Decay Primer Potion with Pixie Epoxy or Glitter Glue. It is just tacky enough to make pigments and loose shadows stay in place and pop, but not overly tacky to the point where it gets gloopy (totally a technical term) or uncomfortable. I’ve hit the bottom of my first jar, so I had to stock up. DG’s primer/bases typically sell out quickly, so I grabbed a back up before I could let it slip away. I also got their Superstar Serum. This is a foil-agent type of product. I’ve heard it works wonders to turn loose shadows into eyeliners, and that is what I bought it for. I have so many dark indie shadows that don’t go to use because I just can’t get them to look nice as a liner or I can’t get the unique color shifts or sparkles to stick around. I’ve tried lining with Pixie Epoxy then a shadow, but it is messy and hard to do over other shades on the lid. I’m hoping this stuff fixes those problems so I can have some rockin’ eyeliner!
- Beauty For The Win: This is a brand new company that will be opening August 15th (with a grand opening sale!). I frequent /r/indiemakeupandmore on reddit and they gave redditors an advanced look. Their first collection is based off of The Fault In Our Stars, which of course as a Nerdfighter, I had to have. I also love that the woman behind the brand is donating a generous amount from every eyeshadow (sample or full size) to the This Star Won’t Go Out charity. This makes me very excited about this company and the collection! Bloggers have the opportunity to purchase a discounted blogger package before the grand opening, so that is what I did. I should have the entire sample collection and two full size shadows to share with you all! The colors look fun and the concept is just perfect!
I’ll be sure to let you guys know what I think of both of these orders! I am very excited to share them with you.
