I was going to do a post on face products part 2 – foundations overview, but I got sidetracked because I found some lovely treasures at Sportsgirl today. I went there to pick up a hat but their makeups totally caught my attention! I must have been living under a rock for the past few years – I had no idea Sportsgirl is doing makeups these days…and the quality surpasses my expectation of drugstore products. Their products are really smooth textured and pigmented, and the color selection is right up my alley – can’t say about the lasting power yet..
Being a sensible shopper, (haha who am I kidding..:-P) I only picked up 4 items today. 1 Eye Color Pencil, 2 lip crayons and 1 lip gloss.
See the color payoff in my swatches below, these were just 1 swipe each. And the colors are absolutely gorgeous.
As soon as I got home, I couldn’t wait to try them on my face. I applied the teal part of the pencil along my upper lash line, and the gunmetal part along my lower lash line. They are very soft to apply, doesn’t tug my skin.
The pink lip crayon is a very barbie pink or “Jessica Simpson” color – a color I would hardly reach for. I don’t find it flattering on me and in the picture below I had to apply lots of bronzing power to make me look less washed out. If you look like Jessica Simpson, or a blond, or tanned, then this is the color for you!
Lurrrve the beige crayon – actually it appears more of a rosy brown on me. I have been obsessed with anything beige and brown since the start of Autumn.
Lastly, this is the new hat I bought from Sportsgirl, love it!
