I typically only post ONE TSABD Edit a week on Tuesdays, but I’ve been summer vacaying (or at least trying to—I’ve still been working) and had a bit of a build-up on products that both came in and that I purchased myself, so I figured I might as well churn them out so I don’t have piles of makeup looking at me every time I walk into my office :x
So this is a bit of a different kind of TSABD Edit. Normally I’d review a bunch of products that just came in, show you swatches, do a video demo, etc. This time around I’m talking about a bunch of beauty products I’ve finished. Now I’m testing this out—I’m not sure how effective a post of this nature would be (you’ll have to tell me if it helps you or not—be honest). Just because I didn’t finish a product doesn’t mean it’s not a good product. I am a recovering beauty junkie so I would buy a LOT of stuff because I lacked self-control (haha) and I also get a ton of product in from brands so there are products that are amazing but that I don’t get around to finishing because either it’s not something I need to use daily or because I have a gazillion others like it.
LA Girl Cosmetics recently launched some new items (or at least they’re new to me) on their site and I decided to scoop them up out of my own curiosity and of course to review them here. I got LA Girl Pro Contour Cream in Medium-Deep and Deep; LA Girl Pro Counter Powder in Medium-Deep and Deep; and LA Girl Just Blushing in Just Love (a bright pink) and Just for Fun (a bright orange).
“Bronzers for dark skin?”
“But we’re already brown/bronze?”
“Why would I need bronzer?”
Many moons ago I, too, did not get the whole bronzer thing (well, I understood bronzer—just didn’t see it as for my skin tone), but back then not very many brands were making bronzers deep enough to make a difference on darker skin tones. But also many moons after that, I got my hands on some that did come deep enough and have been a bronzer fan since. I thought now would be an amazing time to do another bronzers for dark skin post because with it being winter and all, many of us can use a little extra glow.
Welcome to the first TSABD Edit! If you missed my post on changes to how I’ll be blogging going forward, make sure you read it here. TSABD Edit is my new review series where you’ll still get the same authentic reviews you’re accustomed to, but they’ll be grouped by a theme. So instead of me doing say 20 individual reviews, I’ll instead do these once a week or once every two weeks and cover a group of products in one post. If a very popular limited edition product comes out and is available for me to get, I’ll get those out as quickly as possible and likely in its own individual post, but for the most part TSABD Edit is where you’ll now find a majority of the reviews on this site going forward—you can still check out past reviews here. You can expect to see TSABD Edit posts here on Tuesdays—make sure you subscribe to the blog to get email alerts about all new blog posts!
