Because I’ve started making makeup tutorials on my beauty and fashion YouTube channel, I’m slowly adding more makeup items to my collection.
I’m staring off small with just few liners. I picked up NYX lipliners in Purple Rain and Orange. Purple Rain matches perfectly with my favorite lipsticks at the moment, Berry Haute by Revlon which is a dupe for Up the Amp by MAC. I bought orange to go with my various orange lipsticks because while it is possible to get away with no lip liner with some colors and types of lipsticks, cream orange lipstick does not fit into that category for me.
I bought the white eyeliner to replace my NYX Jumbo Pencil in the color Milk. I like this eye pencil a lot and I will continue to use it as an eye shadow base, but I’m not as an eyeliner. I find it difficult to apply it to my waterline. It always smears and sometimes it even gets on my eyeball. It’s probably due to my lack of experience and maybe I can benefit from using a brush, but I prefer the manageability of the slimmer NYX pencil.
Please see swatches below for Berry Haute next to Purple Rain. I included a thin and thick line to show that it is buildable.
I also picked up a few nail polishes over the past few weeks. It’s just one of those things I find hard to leave the beauty store without. From L-R in the photo below: Kleancolor “Neon Purple,” “Mystic Grass,” Sally Hansen “Gun Metal,” and L.A. Colors “Wired.”
