My sister and I were back at LIFT Beauty Boutique this weekend for their complimentary mini-makeup application with Lauren. By the way, we are both in agreement that Lauren is the sweetest makeup artist you will ever meet. 🙂
I, of course, had to come away with some makeup to show Glitter Geek readers. Consider them as “blog purchases”, ‘kay? 😛 I’m supposed to be on a low buy. These colour swatches and pictures are actually spot on; thank you sunlight!
LIFT Cosmetics Eye Shimmer in Moon Dust
Yes, m’dears. It’s a loose eyeshadow, which I usually hate, but this light golden shimmer cannot be ignored! For me, it is a perfect cheek highlighter that gives me that JLo glow. I’m not a fan of the celeb, but definitely a big fan of the glow!
Moon Dust swatch (dry finger swatch)
I use a fan brush to apply Moon Dust on my cheekbones. I get a finish that is less concentrated than the swatch above. Isn’t it gorgeous though? It is such a smooth, sophisticated highlight that doesn’t scream “I’ve been playing with my mother’s makeup drawer and I am now a disco ball.”
LIFT Cosmetics Powder Blush in Sanibel Sunset
During my mini-makeup appointment, I went for a “cheeky” look. It’s something that I never do because I didn’t have any bold blushes. When Lauren pulled this out after I’ve been secretly eyeing it on the display, I immediately said “Yes! That one!” Sanibel Sunset is a warm red with a small amount of gold shimmer that will make it perfect for summertime. This powder blush is soft, non-chalky, and packs a good amount of pigment.

For those of you who are wondering, here is a side-by-side size comparison with a MAC blush.
