A few weeks ago I was watching YouTube and I found some videos of watching YouTuber’s boyfriends buying their makeup. It seemed so fun and maybe a way to try things I wouldn’t have picked up otherwise. Whilst I don’t have the budget to let my fiancé go ape wild at Sephora, so I opted for CVS and this is what he came up with.
Maybeline Master Prime Blurring Primer
L’Oreal Magic Lumi Foundation
Maybline Spider Effect Mascara
Maybeline Master conceal concealer
Physicians Formula Murumuru butter blush in Plum Rose
NYX Noir eyeliner
Rimmell Lipstick in Listen Up (Because he knows I love bright lipsticks)
Milani Brights Eyeshadow Palette
I ended up paying about $115 for everything my fiancé picked out. I went home and created this look:
I didn’t have the best lighting at the time, so bare with me. At fist application I was over the moon for the mascara, blush and contour palette and that lip color!
Upon further use I am obsessed with the primer and concealer he picked out, quickly becoming some of my favorites. They eyeshadow palette is nice but not my choice for everyday makeup and I tend to reach for my Kat Von D tattoo liner over this NYX liner, though it is nice it’s harder to control.
Also, the foundation he picked is my new holy grail, as a dry skinned girl it just applies beautifully! It was honestly such a fun experience for a different kind of date night (we went to a pizza buffet then to the drugstore then he edited photos while I put on this face and let him tell me his final thoughts). I love that he supports my hobbies and it was something we could do together. So, if you’re thinking about it, it’s totally a fun challenge to work with all new products and you could even find new holy grails!
Hopefully in the future I can save a chunk for us to do this again at Sephora!
