New Shea Moisture Makeup

You may have seen Shea Moisture body products at Target, well....now they have makeup! I was so excited when I saw the display one day as I was walking to the check out line. Clearly I had to stop! I haven't seen many reviews online so I thought I'd share the products I have been trying with you.

LIP STAIN
LIP STAIN

Up first we have the lip stain and glossy overcoat. Mine is in the shade NICOLA, a gorgeous bright fuscia. Let me tell you, I swatched this yesterday on my hand, and it still is there! So as far as staying power goes, this won't go anywhere. I love using lip stains in the summer because you can apply them in the morning and are good to go all day long. This also comes with a clear gloss on the other side which creates a nice shine on top of the stain. I am definitely wanting to try more shades of this product.

Up next, we have concealer. I grabbed the shade SNOWDONIAN FAWN, which is the lightest shade. This is formulated to reduce fine lines and provide great coverage. I found this to be super light for my skintone. I felt like the next shade up was really dark, so I'm not sure if any of the shades are a good match for me. As far as performance goes, I found this to be very hydrating and gave me pretty good coverage. The only thing that bothered me is that it seemed to wear off during the day. I will use this on lazy makeup days, but not for big events or when I need my makeup to last a really long time.

Mascara time! This is the lengthening mascara in BLACK. They also carry a volumizing formula as well, which I really want to try. This is an awesome mascara. I am super picky when it comes to my lashes. Here is what I like about this one. The formula is not too wet, so it is pretty hard to make your lashes look clumpy. I am a fan of combining different mascaras, so I have been applying a volumizing mascara first, then using this on top to add length and separation. Honestly, if you use an eyelash curler after your lashes have dried, you will get MEGA length!

Last up we have the lip and cheek balm in BO-KAAP PEACH. Another one of my favs. This will add a hint of color to both your lips and cheeks in a very flattery hue. I like using this equally on my cheeks and lips. It really gives my cheeks a pinched look to them and never feels tacky on the skin. As far as my lips go, this is a great natural color and I love adding a clear gloss on top.

(fyi - this comes as a refill so you have to buy the compact as well)

Let me know if you have tried any other Shea Moisture makeup items!
