Hey ladies and gents!
I posted my July Favorites on my channel and I thought I would share here. I talked about both beauty and natural hair products that I enjoyed through July. Head on over and check it out if you are interested in the things I’ve been using the most this month!
Summer to me means bright colors and fun times. The Maybelline The Brights pallet seemed like the perfect thing to bring some fun makeup looks for the summer.
I had heard about this palette, but I saw it in Target for the first time this past weekend. I really like The Nudes and The Blushed Nudes so it was only right that I tried The Brights.
I will say that out of the three palettes, this one has my favorite colors. As far as performance, it is probably in last place. The color pay off is not as vibrant on the skin as it is in the package. However, if you use a white eyeshadow base, they do a pretty decent job.
I also thought I would pick up and try Maybelline’s Color Blur lip pencil to see how I liked it. I got mine in the color I like to Mauve It.
In the picture above I used the “blur side” to blur the color out. To be honest, I am not really sure the point of the blur. I will say this product is so moisturizing on the lips, especially for something that is supposed to be matte. I don’t know if this color is for me, but I would definitely try another one in a different color.
I created fun little look with the palette to see how it would perform. I think it came out pretty good with the white eyelid base. This is I like to Mauve it on my lips. Over all I think for $9.99 the brights palette isn’t a bad buy. Pick up a good eyeshadow base and you create some pretty looks.
Have you guy tried the Brights Palette or any of the Color Blur lip pencils? Let me know your thoughts on them in the comments!
