New Spring Arrivals from Almay!

I was recently lucky enough to join a campaign in my favourite Canadian Beauty Blogger Facebook group, where we received some new Spring arrivals from Almay!

If you didn't know, Almay is a cosmetic company which is owned by Revlon, but created for people with sensitive skin. Almay has been committed to creating products that are pure and hypoallergenic for over 80 years!

Today I'm going to share with you some new products added to Almay's cosmetic line, that is easy to find in your local drug store!

First up, the eyes!

Almay - Smoky Eye Trios Eyeshadow in Smoldering Embers
I used the lightest shade all over my lid going up to my brow bone. I also used the purple/middle shade in my crease. I used the bottom darkest shade to darken the outer corner part of my crease.

Next up,

Almay - Velvet Foil Cream Shadow in Infinite Sky and Black Lightening

I only used Black Lightening on my eyes in the outer V section of my eye. These apply so creamy, and so pigmented, that just a little dot goes along way! It was easy to blend and I just used my fingers. I can't wait to play around with the blue shade.

Almay - Make Them Jelly Hi-Lite in 24k Dreams and Unicorn Light

This is the coolest texture of highlighter I have ever seen, or tried! It really is jelly, but its not wet, slimy, or sticky!

The pink shade (unicorn light) is definitely more noticeable on the skin, than the gold shade (24k dreams). I decided to use the pink on the tops of my cheekbones and in the inner corners of my eyes.

Last up, I was sent two new glosses.

Almay - Goddess Gloss in Enchanted and Magic

I decided to wear my look with Enchanted (purple) because it felt like it worked better with the cooler eyeshadow trio I was wearing. The glosses go on really smooth and aren't sticky. The glitter isn't too bold either.

Lastly... the mascara!

Almay - One Coat Mega Volume Mascara

I have actually received this mascara previously in an Influenster campaign and I really enjoyed how volumized it made my lashes. It definitely does not have your typical wand, but it applies easily and removes just as easily at the end of the night. I did have an issue in the past with this being clumpy as it was it was aging, however, I'm hoping its not an issue anymore. For the mean time, I'm loving my fanned out, volumized lashes.

It seems like spring is all about dew and glitter! Teenage me is loving all of it! And none of it is so in your face, that you can't wear it whenever you want!

As for the rest of my face, I'm wearing:
- *Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 130 Porcelain for Normal/Dry skin
- Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in 02 Mont Blanc
- Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly
- Lise Watier Feline Eyeliner HD in Matte Black
