Alex’s Look: The Natural Beauty

Alex wanted to create a natural fall beauty look. First, she used the 12-hour wear, crease resistant Caviar Eye Sticks in the shades Burnished Bronze and Moonlight to create a bronzy eye. She then used the waterproof Longwear Creme Eye Pencil in Black to define her eyes and the Full Blown Volume Suprême Lash Building Mascara to lengthen, curl and sculpt her lashes. For her face, she applied the Blush Color Infusion in the shades Fresco and Rose, using the Cheek Colour Brush and the Blending Brush to achieve a fresh glow. Lastly, she used the Naked Lip Pencil and the Lip Glacé in Bare Pink to create a perfect pout.

Niha’s Look: The Bold Beauty

Niha decided to go for a bolder, edgier and more glamorous look. She started off with the Eye Basics water-resistant eyelid primer in the shade Buff. Next, she applied the mattifying Caviar Eye Stick in the shade Cocoa and highlighted her eyes with Sugar Frost. After, Niha applied the Face Illuminator highlighting powder in the shade Indiscretion with the Glow Powder Brush and the long-wearing, sheer powder Blush Color Infusion in Sangria with the Angled Cheek Contour brush to create a berry complexion. She finished the look with the Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in the dark red color Dominate.

Final Review

Our beauty gurus loved all of the products they tested. Alex thought the eyesticks and lipgloss were extremely smooth, beautifully pigmented on her skin and easy to use, even when in a rush. Meanwhile, Niha felt that the matte lipstick was especially creamy and had a very rich color. She agreed that all of the products she tried were easy to use and had amazing application. While these products can be expensive, they are worth it because of their high quality and clean, polished look upon application. In addition, the products last all day so they are truly perfect for NYU students and can even survive all-nighters at Bobst.
