RARE BEAUTY REVIEW!
Today we're going to focus a bit more on beauty because it's an important part of our daily lives. Since Covid happened and even years before that, I've always loved applying more minimal make-up. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with wanting to play with make-up and do cool, vibrant looks, but I prefer enhancing my features just enough to feel confident in my own skin.
On top of that, I also like my choice of products to be natural, to feel like my second skin...light and hydrating. That's why I was super excited when I found-out Selena Gomez's new brand will be just that. Rare Beauty was made to break the unrealistic standards of perfection and focus on owning your true uniqueness. Have you tried it yet?
The brand launched earlier this month on September 3. I knew I wanted to give it a try and create this review as soon as possible. If you're still debating whether or not you should purchase some of these products, I hope this post gives you some useful insights about each product.
Before getting into the details, I want to say that Rare Beauty totally fit my "style" of make-up because I don't like hiding behind my make-up. Throughout the years my signature has become bold lips and everything else as simple and natural as possible. If you can relate, you'll probably LOVE this brand!
The first thing I've got is the foundation. It's got every color range to fit every type of skin, so I'm sure you'll find yours.
One thing I love about the foundation and every product is the applicator, which makes applying the make-up super easy and without making a mess. Something that immediately caught my attention and surprised me in the best way possible. You just add a few dots onto your face and start blending with your brush.
As for the foundation itself, I don't think the shade I picked matched my skin. It gave me a more unnatural look and it didn't feel like it's supposed to feel...barely there. Out of all the products I tried from Rare Beauty, the foundation is the one I'm not so sure about. I won't be repurchasing it, but I'll figure out a way to blend it in with another foundation and make it work.
This product is one you'll have to try yourself to see whether it feels good or not on your skin. I think for me, I have tried better foundations, which I would totally go back to.
Here I'm all LOVE because this duo gave me everything I needed. It made my dark bushes happy! hahaha
Its got a waterproof pencil on one side and a tinted brow gel on the other. Simple, fun and easy way to sculp and set your eyebrows. I completely love it because it enhances what you've got. Exactly what makes you rare!!! Appreciate it, celebrate it and show it in its best light!
Soft Pinch Dewy Liquid Blush (Grateful)
The blush is another positive for me because it's one of the best liquid blushes I have tried so far. You honestly need the tiniest drops of this product on your cheeks. You can always build up if you like. I like the fact that it blends effortlessly and looks completely natural afterwards. It's a big HIT! It gives you the healthies kind of flush on your cheeks as if you just saw your crush walk-by.😉
Another wonderfully rare product is the liquid highlighter, which gives a beautiful glow. One that is just enough to leave you believing that you're glowing from within. I like it a lot!💋
Also, it feels silky on your skin and I really appreciate the fact that it stays on all day. Long-lasting products are a BIG plus in my book, as I don't like to retouch my make-up or worry about it if I'm out and about the whole day. The only thing I ever take in my purse to reapply after a meal is my lipstick. What about you?
As a "forever lipstick lover" this is my favorite beauty product from this Rare Beauty collection. I love the velvety matte finish and this gorgeous coral shade. It completes me because I love keeping everything else natural and having only my lips pop. It would be difficult, or should I say, very surreal if you ever spot me without wearing a lipstick. I'm the only one who knows what I look like without a lipstick on!🤣hahaha
This product is definitely one of the very first ones you should try from this range. There's a reason it's talked about so much online and a lot of people seem to be loving it as well.
What makes you RARE?❤
Overall I really enjoyed the products and found them easy to use and super natural in the way they felt on my skin. The one product from which I expected a bit more is the foundation. However, I recommend trying Rare Beauty because it's made to be affordable but still high quality. And if you're a fan of products made from natural ingredients, you shouldn't think twice about trying it.
Let me know, which Rare product is your favorite?
