Haul: Sephora, Urban Decay, and Rite Aid!

Hi Beauties! So today I did a bit of shopping, and I had a blast! We went to a ton of different stores, but I ended up only picking up 3 things, which is pretty crazy for me, ’cause I’m a shopoholic ūüôā But, I also ordered off of Urban Decay (urbandecay.com) and got a couple things. Either way, I’m super happy with my purchases, and can’t wait to share them with you all!

Starting with the drugstore…

 

 

I got my first¬†Revlon Lip Butters! These items have been RAVED over, and I finally picked up 2 of my own, and I’m super stoked! I got the colors¬†Cotton Candy¬†(pink with gold shimmer) and¬†Peach Parfait¬†(peach with gold shimmer). These each costed $8.

From what I’ve tried, I’m super super happy with these! I hope to pick up some more soon!

 

At Sephora…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got the¬†Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface!¬†I’ve been lusting over this blush forever, and am incredibly happy to have it now! It is a light baby pink in the pan, but on your cheeks it turns into a brighter pink. Its stunning against my olive skin tone, and am so excited to start wearing it this spring and summer! ¬†This blush costed $25

From Urban Decay (urbandecay.com)…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I first picked picked up the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.¬†This is an insanely famous product, that almost any makeup junkie has heard of/tried! I’ve always wanted to try out the Primer Potion in the shade Eden (I have Original and Sin already), and since it was on sale in the vintage genie bottle for¬†$9, I thought it was a steal!

 

 

 

I then picked up the 24/7 Glide On Pencil Set in Electric.¬†I’ve always wanted to try out the infamous Urban Decay eyeliners, and I thought this mini set would be the perfect way to test them out! I am IN LOVE with these eyeliners, they have the most amazing formulation! I can’t wait to get more. This was $32.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally…. I got the….Book of Shadows IV!¬† I was so excited to get this. It comes with a variety of Urban Decay’s amazing eye shadows, PLUS a full size liquid liner and a deluxe size of the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original and their Super Curl Mascara (which I already have). I have wanted this FOREVER, but when I bought it, it was on sale for $29! This palette is originally $64, so I could not pass this up! I am so glad I got it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So that is all I bought! I hoped you guys enjoyed! In the comments, tell me what your recent purchases have been, and what products your lusting after!

My Everyday Makeup Routine!

Hi Beauties! So as this website is called Natural Glamour, I decided to show you how I do my everyday makeup. It’s sort of a minimal-makeup-is-best kind of routine, as I don’t like to wear a ton. Anyways, here is the look I have been wearing a TON lately, hope you like it!

1) MOISTURIZER

I start by taking my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, and pumping about one and half times onto the back of my hand. I dot this on my face, and then blend it evenly all over into my skin. This moisturizer is great: it’s cooling, and controls oil!

 

2)  CONCEALER

I take my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer and place this under my eyes, and on any other problem areas. I love the way this concealer brightens up my under eye area, and makes me seem awake!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) POWDER

I apply a pressed powder (that is basically translucent) under my eyes to set the concealer, and on any areas where I know I will be oily: my forehead, nose, and chin. I am using the NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Powder in 704A Warm Beige, and applying it with the powder end of my double sided Sephora face brush.

 

 

 

4) BLUSH

I am taking my Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in the shade Peach Satin on a Sephora small stippling blush. I get a bit of the blush on my brush, and start to stipple it on my cheeks. Once I’ve done that, I blend it in up to my temples using small circular motions. This blush gives my cheeks a gorgeous luminous sheen, which is to die for!

 

 

 

5) HIGHLIGHTER

Taking my mini NARS Illuminator in Copacabana, I apply a small amount of this to my cheekbones.

 

 

 

6) PRIMER AND SHADOW

I first prime my eyes with the Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original). I then take my Naked2 palette by Urban Decay and lightly sweep suspect over my lids. Remember, lightly!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7)  MASCARA

I apply a bit of the Urban Decay Super Curl Mascara to my upper lashes, which gives them the perfect lift!

 

 

 

 

6) LIPS

Grabbing my Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment, I apply this to my lips, which is the perfect way to finish off my look!

 

 

 

So there you have my everyday makeup routine. It’s fresh, luminous, and quite natural. In the comments, tell me what your everyday routine consists of, and what product makes it complete! Hope you enjoyed!

On-The-Go Beauty Must Haves!

Hi Beauties! Today I am going to be showing you my top six on-the-go beauty must haves! These are beauty items I have with me wherever I go, and could never leave the house without!

1) bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara: This is my all time favorite mascara (or at least, one of them!) I have fairly long eyelashes already, but this mascarajust adds the perfect lift to my lashes! It looks absolutely natural, and flawless! My eyelashes like 10 times bigger with this mascara, without being the slightest bit clumpy, and lasting all day. This mascara never smudges, flakes, or dries out your lashes! Its absolutely impeccable. I own the big size and this little baby size, which I love to throw in my bag. The original size is $18, I bought mine at Sephora (sephora.com) I absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for the most natural, volumizing mascara!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Anastasia Eye Lights Shimmer in Lace:¬† This product is the most AMAZING inner corner highlighter. It is a creamy, easy to blend shimmery golden color. It is not extremely gold and flashy but gives the most subtle shimmer and glow to your eyes. It’s perfect to have if you are looking rather dull, and want to brighten up your face! It is extremely easy to apply, as it’s sort of like a jumbo-eye liner! It is super creamy and lasts a very long time. It’s perfect to highlight the inner corner, to line your water line with, and sometimes all over the lid, as a shadow or base! I purchased mine at Sephora (sephora.com) for $10. They are a special promotion, and selling out quick, so get them while you can. I never go a day without wearing this highlighter, and definitely recommend it to everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Powder:¬† This is my all time favorite pressed powder! I have very oily skin, so it is pretty essential for me to have a pressed powder to touch up my oily areas whenever I need it! This powder is super light, but is great at mattifying. It really doesn’t give any coverage, but thats not what I use it for. It never cakes, it lasts SO long, and gives me a very airbrushed finish. I absolutely CANNOT live without this powder! And the best part is, it’s SO cheap! I bought this powder on sale at my local Rite Aide for 96 cents. 96 CENTS! I believe regularly it is about $2-3 dollars, which is still an incredible steal for the quality! I recommend this powder to ANYONE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) Posietint by Benefit:¬†This is a great lip and cheek tint, in a bubblegum pink hue! It has a gel like consistency, which feels great on my lips (I don’t use it for my cheeks!). I love the flush of color it gives my cheeks, its absolutely stunning. Its really great to put on when you need a pop of color to liven up your face or play up your makeup look. Because it is a stain, it lasts a very long time, and because it has a wonderful gel-like consistency, it NEVER dries out your lips. I have a mini size that I bought from Sephora in a kit, which makes it very easy to throw in my bag and go. You can buy the full size for $29 at Sephora (sephora.com)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5)¬†Smith’s Rosebud Salve:¬† I adore this stuff! Basically, it is a slightly tinted petroleum jelly in a cute vintage tin! I absolutely love this stuff because it is so hydrating for my lips, and a little goes a super long way! It smells amazing too- it has a honey and roses kind of scent. It sounds weird but smells AMAZING. I love putting this balm on whenever my lips start to feel a bit chapped, because it is beyond nourishing and gives a pretty glossy finish. I bought mine at a local boutique, but I know you can but them at Sephora (sephora.com) for $6.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6) ¬†Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil:¬† This is the best concealer EVER. It is small and compact and great to take with you. I really recommend carrying a concealer with you, incase your previous one wears off or you find some blemish you urgently need to cover up! This concealer is FABULOUS: it is creamy, easy to blend, and you can barely tell your wearing it. It never cakes, and doesn’t wear off too easily. The only downside: you can’t twist it up, you need to SHARPEN IT. Some might not find this a negative, but I definitely would have preferred a retractable concealer. Either way, I absolutely ADORE this concealer! I am in the shade NSA, and I purchased it at the Urban Decay website (urbandecay.com) for $18.
