Michaela  💄Beauty Aficionado 💋Lip Gloss Enthusiast 💪🏼Exercise Devotee 📍Seattle, WA 💌deathbyneutrals@gmail.com Sharing my beauty journey one product at a time.

This month’s @sephora Play! was on point 👌🏼. A few tried and trues, wanting to try’s and new discoveries. -
treStiQue Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose Stick -
I love how cute this travel highlighter is.
This Highlighter Stick contains pearl pigments that leave a subtle champagne glow, perfect for my skintone. I typically use powder highlighter but I really like this gel formula. - ✨Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask -
One of my skincare staples. I have a previous post going into more detail but I cannot get enough of this mask and I cannot see myself stopping regular use of it.
- ✨Milk Makeup Blur Stick -
I have started using this as a primer for a smooth finish to blur my skin's imperfections and to lock in my makeup. I really like that this stick is formulated without silicone and it will not clog pores. So far, so good. - ✨Grande Cosmetics GrandeLips Hydrating Lip Plumper -
I have been wanting to try this product for a while now so I’m glad I received it as a sample. Unlike most plumping glosses, this product has long-term benefits. According to this product, it is infused with Volulip™ and hyaluronic acid, allowing it to instantly improve lip volume and it’s clinically proven formula increases overall lip hydration, volume and firmness after 30 days of usage when applied twice daily. I'm excited to see if that claim is true. - ✨Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt -
This is a new discovery for me and I’m a bit in love. This is a detoxifying shampoo formulated with sea salt to deeply cleanse sensitive and/or oily scalps while delivering essential hydration. I've used it twice and my hair has so much more volume after each use. - ✨Nest Black Tulip Perfume
I’m not a huge fan of this fragrance, but I’m also really picky with the scents that I wear. What’s most important to me is how the scent interacts with my skin’s pH balance and this is not great for me. This scent contains nuances of patchouli, pink pepper and Japanese Violet - all scents I love separately, just not together.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio
-
I’ve been on a bit of a blush bender lately, so I was extremely excited when @anastasiabeverlyhills announced they were coming out with blush trios. 👉🏼 swipe for swatches. -
-
I am kind of obsessed with peach and coral for summer on my olive skintone so I picked up the trio in the shade Peachy Love. I figured if I liked the formula, I’d pick up another trio when they launched in @sephora Well, I love it. The formula is very creamy and pigmented - like, really pigmented. A little goes a long way, so a soft touch is required but they do blend beautifully into the skin. I actually really like mixing two of the shades, Nectarine and Miami, for a custom color. The packaging is absolutely beautiful and compact, as per usual; I love the inlaid ABH design behind in grey. -
-
Shades in order from wrist to elbow: Nectarine, Ginger, Miami. Has anyone tried any other other trios? Let me know which one I should pick up next.

MAC Cosmetics Pearlmatte Face Powder in Trophy 🎳🎳🎳
-
I try to go bowling once a week so when I saw this beauty 40% off on the @maccosmetics I had to pick one up for my collection. This face powder swirls together to create a light, warm white with a pearly sheen, great as a highlighter on lighter skin tones or inner corner highlight. -
I'm not sure how much use this will get from me but I love how unique it is and it reminds me of The Big Lebowski everything I look at it.

How adorable is this Beauty Insider gift from @sephora ?! I already use all of these items religiously except for the Miss Dior perfume so I had to have these for my travel makeup kit. Is it just me or is there something irresistible about mini products?

Most people probably wouldn't guess from this @instagram page, but I'm actually an avid rock climber which means my nails take a constant beating. I'm also unwilling to have unpolished nails so the Vinylux polish from @cndworld is an absolute necessity. This is the only polish that will hold up climbing without completely coming off. For the weeks I'm not climbing my mani stays chip-free for 7-10 days. Pictured here is the perfect summer red in color Lobster Roll. Does anyone else use and love this polish?

AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+
-
I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a huge sunscreen junkie. Like, I cannot get enough of it and, although I live in Seattle, I still wear it every single day of the year. -
This cushion combines skincare and makeup to form the perfect weightless and buildable coverage with sun protection. This contains Asian botanicals that brighten and hydrate the skin while protecting it from free-radicals and sun damage. -
I absolutely love the smell of this product; it is florally with a hint of perfume but none of the traditional SPF scent. I also love how quickly it is absorbed by the skin and dries matte without even a shadow of a white cast. And, can we talk about the packaging? It’s absolutely perfect to use on the go. With this, I’m able to do sunscreen touchups throughout the day that would have traditionally ruined my makeup.

Happy Sunday! Here is my #motd for a beautiful Seattle day. I always forget that I own this @morphebrushes 25B palette, but I had a lot of fun playing with it today.

Look what finally arrived! @kyliecosmetics Creme Liquid Lipsticks.
-
These creme liquid lips have a sheer/medium coverage that does not dry down completely matte. They are formulated to be hydrating with a ‘luxurious’ feel. I personally do not like matte liquid so I was excited to try these out, not to mention the colors are gorgeous. -
For me, these are a bit of a miss. The formula is incredibly thin, runny and quite streaky. It takes about 2-3 layers to get an even coat on the lips. I have been loving the Nars Velvet Lip Glides lately so I was really hoping the formula would be a bit more similar to that. -
The other thing I dislike about this set is that, although they are beautiful, the colors will not work on a wide variety of skin-tones. I have an olive complexion with golden undertones and the lightest shade, Kim, is way too light for me and makes me look like I’m sickly. -
I really like the packaging, but I would not purchase this product again. I would much rather have a Nars Velvet Lip Glide which has a much nicer formula with a wider variety of shades and feels more luxurious to me. -
Shades bottom to top: Kimberly, Kim, Kiki, Kimmie

All about the 👄 lately. Picked up this Give Me Some Nude Lip kit on the VIB sale and finally getting around to wearing everything. Can we just talk about how adorable that tiny @buxomcosmetics Lip Cream in White Russian is?!

Marc Jacobs Beauty @marcbeauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer
-
Just after ABH, @marcbeauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer is one of my favorite glosses. When I saw how adorable this travel collection is I had to pick one up despite already owning a few of these shades. -
Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer delivers maximum color with a unique Triple Shine Complex, that makes lips shine like "30 coats of lacquer." The high shine creates an optical plumping look and the formula feels cushiony on the lips, not sticky at all. It's also mint-scented but I'd prefer it not to be as I usually associate that with a plumping effect which this gloss does not have.

A liquid lotion seemed a bit counterintuitive to me but I actually really love this product after testing it out. -
This @erborian liquid lotion is enriched with yuzu, a citrus fruit from the Jeju Island in South Korea known for its antioxidant properties. -
@erborian Yuza Double Lotion combines the benefits of two phases that work together. The aqueous phase contains ingredients which helps the skin look radiant, and the oily phase helps to nourish. This bi-phase formula smooths the appearance of skin to provide radiance for dull complexions. My skin was left looking hydrated and smooth. -
Has anyone else tried this? Let me know your thoughts!

@givenchybeauty Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick ⚫️💄⬛️
-
Black is my favorite color so I haaad to have this lipstick by Givenchy. And can we talk about how beautiful the packaging is?! -
This lipstick is formulated with black rose oil to make the lips shine and provide a bit of a plumping effect. It also contains a silicone resin that creates a film on the lips that makes the lips appear smoother, fuller and denser. Imperfections are blurred away. This black formula reacts with the skin's ph balance to create a beautiful soft rosy pink. -
Has anyone else tried this?
