Illamasqua Cream Foundation CF120
Nars eyeliner in Black Moon
OPI My Private Jet (NLB59)
Illamasqua Cream Foundation was something out of the ordinary for me. I usually use liquid foundation and then set with a powder. It's been a long time since I actually used a cream foundation out of a compact. This item is quite misleading, at first glance of the cream, I thought it would actually be too dark for me, but when applied, it was actually a little too light for me. I think this will end up being my winter foundation. I did like the formula, it was very smooth on the face, and didn't highlight my enlarged pores as much. They also have a pleasant soft vanilla scent. But it didn't win me over to returning to cream foundations out of a compact.
NARS Black Moon Eyeliner was an impulse swap. It's mainly because I am obsessed with all things Nars, and not because I needed a black eyeliner. I have like 20 black eyeliners and I'm struggling to get through them all to be honest. But like I said, I couldn't resist swapping for another NARS item, because they are in my top 5 favourite brands.
OPI My Private Jet was one of those polishes that I felt I needed in my collection. This version is not the original black holographic one, but it's the dark brown shimmer one. it's a nice colour don't get me wrong, otherwise I wouldn't have swapped for it, but it's definitely not filling the hole that the original black holo polish can only fill. Oh well, maybe one day I will become lucky enough to get one, until then, at least I have this version in my collection.
I promise I'll have more fun things to show in August. I have another massive box swap with Buttonboxx, and I have already gotten a really hard to find nail polish in a swap recently, so check back at the end of this month for my August swap haul post. xx
