You may have seen my Instagram posts last week about the flash sale TheBalm was having with 50% off sitewide. I told myself I didn’t need anything and therefore had no reason to buy anything. That last for about an hour before I couldn’t help myself and jumped onto the site to pick up a few goodies for myself.
Balm Beach Blush: This is a beautiful neutral shade that makes me look fresh-faced, like I just got back from the spa, and it lasts all day! The color can also easily be built up if you prefer a darker blush.
TheBalm Girls Lipstick, Foxxy Pout: I really wanted this in the color Mai Billsbepaid, which is a nude color, but it was sold out when I finally decided to make my purchase. Instead, I got Foxxy Pout which is a bronzy mauve. This color has a slight metallic sheen to it, but I don’t think it will translate to my lips.
Read My Lips Lipgloss, Zaap!: I already have a sample of this in Bam! and it is probably one of my most used glosses. It feels great on my lips and has good color payoff. This time around, I opted for Zaap!, which looked to be a more pigmented version of Bam! However, now that I have it in my hands, it definitely looks more red and shimmery than I was expecting.
Batter Up, Shutout: During the week, I need quick and easy to apply makeup as I never give myself enough time to get ready ( I enjoy sleeping way too much). When I saw these new eyeshadow sticks, I knew I had to try one. Shutout is a golden bronze color that looks wonderful on, and wears all day with no creasing.
BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer: I almost exclusively use tinted moisturizers since they’re triple-duty products: cover imperfections, moisturize and provide SPF. I read that these work as better than Laura Mercier TM which is my current holy-grail, so I had to get this one to compare.
Giveaway runs until March 21, at which point I will pick a winner and announce it here and on Instagram!
