This month’s theme and bag is lazy summer and features Gudetama a newer character by Sanrio, some other Sanrio characters being Hello Kitty, Chococat, and My Melody. I think this bag is really cute and quirky and I love the products I received! I’m also seeing some different brands this month which is a great change. 🍳
✖️Trestique Concealer Crayon Bisque ($26, for full size)
This is described as a long-lasting, gel-like cream concealer stick and it definitely does have a creamier texture. It’s very pigmented, has really good coverage, and hasn’t creased in my undereye area. So far I’m loving this concealer!
✖️Laritzy Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Nudes ($24)
This is a matte liquid lipstick that at first has a very thin, sort of slippery texture but quickly dries down matte. It’s not very uncomfortable, but does have that powdery feeling which I don’t really like. The color Nudes is a light nude pink color and this shade is literally my exact lip color, but I actually really like this lipstick. According to their website, this lipstick is limited edition and this is actually the only matte liquid lipstick they have on their website.
✖️Nomad x Stockholm Illuminated Highlighting Powder Midnight Sun ($36, for Nomad x Stockholm Palette)
This highlighter is actually part of a 9-piece makeup set by Nomad Cosmetics called the Stolkhom Palette. It is currently on sale on their website. This highlighter has a very soft texture and is very pigmented with no glitters in it and is a universal champagne shade.
✖️Ciate Wonderwand Gel Khol Liner Black ($18, for full size)
This eyeliner is described as having the blendibility of a kohl, with the intense high coverage pigment of a gel. It is a bit more pigmented and smooth than the typical pencil liner. On the other end of this pencil is an angled brush with thin but soft brsitlesto smoke out your eyeliner. Most smudging eyeliner bring a sponge end, but this brush worked really well to precisely smudge out the line nicely.
✖️Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Diving Cleansing Gel ($25, for full size)
This brightening and waterproof makeup remover cleansing gel contains the Rainforest of the Sea complex, allantoin, provitamin B5, Indian gooseberry extract, and lavender oil to smooth the skin, soften and protect, reduce the appearance of fine lines, etc. I’ve only used this sample a couple of times and it left a nice, clean feeling without drying out my skin. With skin care you need to use a product a good couple of months to notice any real results.
