These are some of my favorite makeup items right now! I just painted my nails Rimmel London Salon Pro Kate Moss 237 Soul Session last night. I love the light, pale nude color. I put off painting my nails until I found the best color for Spring in my collection, and I received this color for my birthday by two great friends of mine so I tried it out yesterday. I especially love the applicator brush. It is short and rounded to give you more precise strokes with each use. The polish did not take more than 15 minutes to dry and I only needed about 2-3 coats to achieve the color I wanted. I recently purchased the Maybelline Fit me! Matte + Poreless Foundation. The foundation has nice staying powder and great coverage. For under $8, it is a nice drugstore product. I also got the lightest shade, Porcelain, which is great for girls with super pale skin because it does not oxidize like a ton of products tend to do throughout the day. I am liking it a lot so far! Another favorite is the E.L.F Cosmetics Smudge Pot in "Ain't that Sweet?". I think this is a dupe for the Kitten Stila Smudge Pot and this product is such an affordable find. At just $3, you get a great shimmery base for adding eyeshadow. The texture has a gel-like feel and it is a eyeliner and shadow in one. Something I will continue to repurchase is the Stay Matte Rimmel Pressed Powder. This is a finishing touch I add to my face once my makeup is done. It sells for about $4-5, too! It instantly takes away shine and excess oil from your face.
