Lancome Idole Tint Long Wear Liquid Eyeshadow

The Idole Tint Long Wear Liquid Eyeshadows ($30; lancome-usa.com) from Lancome are something I've been loving lately. The neutral color selection and ease of use makes it one of my most reached eyeshadows. There are seven shades in the range and two finishes - satin matte and shimmer. The shimmers are finely milled with a luminous sheen, while the mattes are smooth and work well as a shadow primer as well. The wand applicator that comes with the product is super easy to apply product and deposits the perfect amount of color. I usually use a fluffy eyeshadow brush or my fingers to blend. Its super easy to blend, is very forgiving on dry skin and sets well once blended. It is quite long wearing and mostly crease-free. I use a cleaning balm or an oil based makeup remover to get it off. Overall, definitely worth picking up a color or two especially if you love neutrals and one and done kind of eyeshadows.

A quick roundup of some new budget friendly beauty finds that I've been recently loving.

Recent Budget Beauty Discoveries I'm Loving

Burt's Bees Gloss & Glow Glossy Balm ($6; burtsbees.com) is one of my favorite affordable sheer lip products. It's affordable, comes in wearable colors and feels super moisturizing. I love the color Chai Time especially which is a perfect neutral for every day wear.The glossy finish looks gorgeous and is such an easy product for on the go.

The Nail Art Studio Jelly Gloss Polish ($12;99; essie.com) is new from essie, a beautifully sheer, yet buildable jelly nail color. The pastels are very flattering on most skin tones. I used two coats for the swatches below and the coverage is quite good for a jelly finish.

The Hydra Kiss Lip Oil ($4;99; ulta.com) is a great budget friendly lip oil from essence. The color Pink Champagne goes on clear, but turns into a beautiful sheer pink after a while. I love how moisturizing it feels and like to use it by itself or over lip products or just paired with a lip liner. It is scented like most lip oils but the scent does tend to fade after a while.

The Sephora Collection Moisturizing Lip Balm in Cherry ($7; sephora.com) is a sheer tinted lip balm that is perfect for a no makeup look. The formula is quite moisturizing and feels very comfortable on the lips. The color is rather sheer, but easy to swipe and go.

The Conair Basik Edition Scalp Massage Brush ($5.99; ulta.com) has been a part of my haircare routine for a few weeks now and I love it. The bristles are not too sharp and I use it to massage my scalp when dry, but it also works well while shampooing. It's a great way to stimulate your scalp and promote circulation.

Olive & June ($7.49; target.com) makes some super gorgeous nail colors in a fantastic formula and I tried a few of their cremes. I love the opacity and how smooth and easy the formula is. The color selection is amazing too and the brush is very nice to use even for a beginner.

The Essence Lash Princess Eyelash Primer ($4.99; ulta.com) is a nice eyelash primer that I like to use before mascara to hold my curl. I have short stubby lashes and this helps curl them well and adds a bit of length as well. I have used it with mediocre mascaras and have had great luck with adding separation and volume.

Westman Atelier Lip Suede Matte Lipstick In Le Rouge

Westman Atelier Lip Suede Matte Lipstick In Le Rouge Review, photos

The Lip Suede Matte Lipstick ($50; sephora.com) is a new addition to the Westman Atelier lip lineup. It's a smooth, satin matte lipstick with a lightweight feel that comes in ten shades. The weighty magnetic packaging is beautiful and the embossing on the lipstick looks fabulous as well. Le Rouge is a bright, saturated red that goes on silky smooth. The texture is wonderful, light and more of a satin matte that doesn't really set. The color is flattering on most skin tones and the formula stays on well when paired with a lip liner since the softer texture tends to feather quite a bit. While I cannot speak for the other shades in the line, Le Rouge is quite long-wearing and leaves a bright stain behind. The formula is moisturizing and feels better with a lip balm underneath. Overall, a very luxuriously formulated lipstick in a clean formula that can be worn both as a stain or as a full saturated lip color. Checkout this reel for a closer look at the swatch in daylight.
