I was originally planning on doing a video today, but with a 3 year old loudly telling himself stories and reading books out loud in his room and an almost 6 month old clamoring for my attention, I decided against that. I used my spending money for the month on a haul of new products from Ulta yesterday so I am going to briefly talk about those as well as a new favorite foundation.
I heard about Deciem The Abnormal Beauty Company a few months ago. It was in reference to their new line of foundations coming out. I checked out the website and was so excited to see that the foundation was only $6.70!! A (anticipated) high end foundation for dollar store prices?? And with so many unique shades available? I ordered what I felt like would be my shade and then eagerly awaited the arrival of my Serum Foundation.
Due to the huge demand for their product, Deceim took a month before getting the serum foundation to me. I honestly didn’t mind the wait. If this foundation was going to be as good as the claims said it was, I was willing to wait! I finally got my 1.1P Fair with Pink Undertones foundation in the mail and carefully inspected the bottle and read the “directions.” I noticed the foundation seemed separated, but I also saw it was highly recommended to shake well before use. I’ve tried the foundation several times in the past two months, but haven’t tried it with primer on first. Today is the first time I’ve done my makeup full face in months. I am so impressed with this foundation! It is very liquid-y and that was concerning to me at first, but it goes on almost velvety and dries matte and almost like a powder. Even though the foundation is very fluid, it has a very good medium coverage and since I don’t need much, I see this one little bottle lasting me for a long time! I have seen reports of the foundation oxidizing, but I think that was in reference to the Coverage Foundation. I haven’t noticed oxidizing in my Serum Foundation though!
Alright, so do I recommend this foundation? Uhm yes, this stuff is amazing, and for that price? Go for it!
Moving on to my Ulta haul!
I have been eyeing Makeup Revolutions Luxury Baking Powder in Banana for a long time. I finally decided to get it tomorrow. I’ll have to say I’m pleased with how it feels. It’s a nice finish instead of using finishing powder to complete a look. I also picked up a new eyeshadow palette. This one is called Unicorns Are Real and as I don’t have any palettes with those colors, I figured why not? So far, I really like the shades! Especially the purples and reddish pink. I’m looking forward to playing with this palette.
The last product I got was a Bright Lights Illumination Blush Stick from NYX. My current blushes are getting old and I need to throw them out so this is a perfect alternative to having a blush palette! I don’t like having a lot of different options for blushes, so having one product to quickly swipe on and go is my preference.
I’m hoping to get a project done in the next few months that will help with getting my YouTube channel up and running again. In the meantime, let me know if you try The Ordinary Serum or Coverage foundations? I’d love to hear what you think!
