Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing a new Three Favorite Things Thursday post! In case you missed it, I shared my first of the weekly series here. This week, it’s all about makeup. I didn’t plan this on purpose. But I received some of the best makeup packages in the mail the past few days, it just made sense to share them in today’s post! So what best makeup products am I talking about? Read on!
Three Favorite Things Thursday: Makeup Edition
1. Pur Soiree Diaries and Contour Diaries
Pür has been one of my favorite brands for years. I like how their makeup are cruelty free, petroleum free, paraben free, talc free, and vegan friendly. When they sent me a ton of their products for one of the New York Fashion Week seasons I attended, I fell in love with most (if not all) of them. It was the only brand I wore that entire NYFW season! And now this!
They came up with these diaries of a makeup-holic line and the marble print packaging is to die for! There’s the Soiree Diaries ($34), a 12-piece eye shadow palette that has some of the most usable shades that you can wear day after day. Then, there’s the Contour Diaries ($32), a 6-piece ultra matte contour palette. Now that’s what I’m talking about. If you don’t already know, their Contour Stick (with a highlighter on one end) was the first contour product I used and fell in love with. I even rave about it until now. It’s just so easy and makes contouring for newbies so effortless! If you have no idea how to do contour, I highly suggest this!
Sorry, I took pictures of these out of excitement one night. I’ll have to take more photos in the morning and I’ll share it on my Insta feed for sure! Moving on to number two…
2. Avon True Colors Lipstick
I. MEAN. I. CAN’T. EVEN. Avon, were you watching my Insta-stories about looking for an acrylic lipstick holder/container? It’s like they knew. But instead of a small 6-lipstick holder, they came up with an entire makeup organizer and filled it up with Avon True Color Lipsticks in every shade possible! I was so surprised opening this big box when it came.
I mean, I’m pretty sure I’d find the right nude lip or the perfect red for my skin tone. Didn’t swatch everything yet. But I already found a wine color I’m dying to wear come Fall season! Would you like me to make a swatch video? It might take forever though! Haha! In case you’re not familiar with their lipsticks, this has True Color Technology which means pigments are blended into their formulas for guaranteed color that stays true all day. I will have to test it out and see how many hours it will stay on. But as far as comfort goes, these lipsticks were moisturizing and comfortable to wear – thanks to the Vitamin E, Omega-3 oil, and Shea Butter.
Thank you so much AVON for this gift! And that personalized makeup organizer with my tag? I. LOVE. YOU.
3. Urban Decay Naked Palettes + Naked Heat
Last, but not the least… probably my most favorite of all that I may have died screaming upon opening the box – URBAN DECAY Naked Palettes!
This one came in a couple of weeks ago and came in about the same time I got these gorgeous rose gold metallic mules from Sophia Webster. I just had to take a photo of the two together because they match so perfectly, right? P.S. these mules are now 60% off, making them $180. That is a SUPER GOOD BUY for Sophia Webster shoes. So if you love these, hurry. They are almost sold out.
Going back, Urban Decay sent me a complete set of the Naked Palettes – 1 to 3. I actually have the 2 and 3. So I was only missing 1. Now, my Naked eyeshadow palettes are complete. THANK YOU so much Urban Decay for sending me this gift. They actually sent me the Naked family to celebrate their new limited edition Go Naked Perfume Oil which is the little bottle right there. It’s got notes of Italian Bergamot, Orange Blossom, and Lavender, making a fruity floral scent that I’m liking! But probably my most favorite is…
Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette
This additional package – they sent me just a few days ago! O.M.G. It literally came the day I was thinking about purchasing this Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I’m not even kidding. Or maybe “it’s like I have ESPN or something” (any Mean Girls movie fan?). Haha! I was really jumping for joy when this came and was probably making weird annoying noises. #SorryNotSorryToMyNeighbors
