Shop My Makeup Stash ♡ | WEEK 1 UPDATE + LOOK

Hey guys! Time flies, doesn’t it? The week’s over and that means it’s time for my “Shop My Makeup Stash Week 1” update! If you don’t know what all of this is, or you would like to know what I initially thought of these products, you can read all of that in my Shop My Makeup Stash post.
So the products I chose were:
1) Milani Shadow Eyez in 01 Winter White
2) elf Brightening Eye Color in Luxe
3) Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara
4) Reacheer Blush Duo in BE01
5) Esprique Blush Stick
6) NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Candyland
1) Milani Shadow Eyez in 01 Winter White
This is an okay product, definitely not something I’d reach for every single day just because it is pretty frosty. It looks pretty as an inner corner highlight, but it’s just easier to use an eyeshadow. I don’t like this worn alone on the eyelids because it is a little patchy. Worn under eyeshadow, it does make my eyeshadows pop.
2) elf Brightening Eye Color in Luxe
I love this quad! It’s so small so it’s easy to carry around to touch up throughout the day. The shadows are all super buttery and pigmented. The lasting power isn’t great, but for $1, you really can’t go wrong.
3) Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara
This is a good mascara, but definitely not the best. It does lengthen my lashes while giving it tons of volume but it can clump up quite a bit. It also isn’t the most waterproof so it does give me smudgy panda eyes.
4) Reacheer Blush Duo in BE01
I love this! I feel like since it is a darker colour, it really complements my skin tone. It is matte (the shimmers are leftover swatches of other products) so it gives a very natural flush to the face. This lasts a good amount of time too, around 4-5 hours.
5) Esprique Blush Stick
This blush is super pigmented and a dream to blend! It does have shimmer in it, so it gives a beautiful glow to the face. The only problem I have with this is the lasting power (as with many cream blushes) when worn alone.
6) NYX Xtreme Lip Cream
I still don’t really like this, I prefer the Soft Matte lip creams. These feel a lot heavier and drag the lips when you’re applying it. The colour is gorgeous though.
