But before we get to all of the fun beauty items, I wanted to share that I’m part of a Twitter party H-E-B is hosting tomorrow, Wed. Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. CST! You can follow me @veronabrit. There will be giveaways with beauty prize packs and gift cards, too! You can follow the chat by using the hastag #HEBbeauty and you can follow H-E-B here.
I love this NYX cream blush in “natural.” It’s so pretty and gives a perfect flush to the cheeks— just like if you were to spend a little time outside in chilly weather. I don’t wear makeup setting spray on the regular, but I knew I’d have a particularly long day at work today so I sprayed a little on this morning before leaving the house and I do think it helps makeup look fresher a little longer. The NYX eye pencil arrived in a gorgeous forest green. I have some olive green in my eyes, so anything green really makes them pop. I like to use a flat eyeshadow brush to apply the liner because it’s a “chubby” style pencil and I prefer a thinner line.
Nothing says holidays more than glitter. I currently have a gorgeous red glitter shellac on my toes, but I love this silver glitter Orchid polish and I think it would look amazing for a glitter accent nail. I usually do glitter accent nails during the holidays because it’s not something I would wear for work on the regular and it’s always a fun, festive change.
The Revlon photo-ready eye art pen is all kinds of awesome. On one side you’ll find a metallic cream shadow and on the other a glitter liner. I personally found that the results looked best when I layered the glitter liner over my regular black or brown liner. That really made it pop.
Lastly, I received these faux Ardell lashes. I’ve used Ardell lashes a ton in the past but haven’t had an opportunity to break these out yet. From my experience with the brand for many, many years, I have only good things to say about these lashes. I like that these are the “natural” ones because super thick false lashes don’t appeal to me as much.
