1. NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer. Y’all should know I’m obsessed with skincare, so a makeup product that doubles as skincare is a dream. NYX is one of my favorite drugstore brands so I’m excited to try this.
Description: “In addition to prepping your face for even, long-lasting makeup, NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is loaded with good stuff for your skin, too. Like naturally antiseptic honey, collagens to strengthen skin, and gold flecks for added radiance. Wear it alone or under moisturizer and makeup for the perfect everyday glow.”
Like many other beauty bloggers, I have an ongoing love affair with Soap & Glory products – they’re so beautifully packaged, fairly affordable, and such high quality! I don’t know a girl whose heart doesn’t light up with covetous “must have” feelings just looking at their bright pink packaging and vintage lettering and labeling. It’s almost too good to be true that products that are so cleverly presented, that look good enough to EAT, are also worth keeping around for actual use.
But so it is. And so far, this is my favorite Soap & Glory product tried so far. Highlighters are a tricky business because so much depends on personal taste – I, for example, don’t like the famous Benefit Watts Up, so revered in the beauty sphere, because I tend toward natural-looking, day makeup, and discovered I had no tolerance for obvious sheen on my face. I wanted something that would give a gorgeous natural glow without imparting any kind of sparkle.
