These hot and humid summer months have me streamlining my makeup routine for quick and easy options that outperform. Multi-tasking cream products are definite must, there is no way I am applying powders to an already tacky face. Add in “luminous”, “fool-proof” and a “healthy skin formula” and you have W3LL PEOPLE’s ingenious Universalist Multi-Use Colorsticks. These color sticks are multi-tasking makeup at its finest, with an exceptionally dreamy cream formula.
With the nourishing organic oils of grape seed, olive, camellia and safflower, along with the added benefits of antioxidants and soothing aloe, the Universalist Sticks coat your skin in a layer of skin-healthy ingredients along with vibrant color. These Colorsticks from W3LL PEOPLE are a definite stand-out for their formula and exceptional wear. A little goes a long way, as they blend seamlessly to create a healthy glowing finish that is “your skin but better”. They also layer beautifully for a more intense color payoff. The universal formula works well wherever you may place it, be it on the cheeks, eyes, or lips. The newest shade from the Universalist Multi-Use Colorstick range #9 Nude Flush, is a shade that you will actually want to apply all over.
Nude Flush: one swipe (left) and blended (right)
Nude Flush #9 is a warm brown shade with touches of orange and pink. The formula is from the matte range, although it does have a subtle luminosity. It is a divinely flattering shade for warmer skin tones, that adds the most natural healthy flush to cheeks. I’m over the moon for this new shade addition, and have been wearing it daily (all over) paired with a self-tan.

With pleasure, I bid January farewell. It’s long, cold nights are not something I will miss and I welcome the approaching warmer months. I have been introduced to some lovely products these past couple of weeks. Two samples have even found their way into my favorites post, both of which I will be purchasing full-sized versions of – a rarity if I do say so myself. Yay for samples!
Burberry Light Glow Blush in No.04 Peony – This blush has seen lots of wear this past month. The sheer color is perfect for an everyday subtle look. Peony is a gorgeous blue-based pink. (review)
Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil – This organic Argan Oil has been a savior to my skin. I apply it to my skin in evenings and mix it into my foundation. No complaints about dry skin since incorporating this beauty into my routine. (product website)
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #8 – Of course I had to include the new YSL lipstick in my favorites this month. Loving this pale-pink shade for every day. (review)
Becca Shimmering Perfector in Opal – I received this sample along with a Becca purchase I made in December. I mix a bit into my foundation for a natural-glowing finish. I am quite in love with the results and will definitely be picking up a full-sized.
W3LL People Universalist 2 – Another sample, this one I received in a monthly subscription beauty box. This highlighter has replaced my previous favorites. I apply it to the inner corner of my eyes, brow bones, cheekbones, and cupid’s bow. The look is naturally luminous.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink – This liner is long-lasting, always soft, and a dream to use. One of my go-tos for created a winged eyeliner look. Also great for beginners or for those with a shaky hand.
Japonesque HD Dual Sided Brush #110 – I love this brush for applying foundation. One side has natural bristles and the other has synthetic bristles. It gives me a perfect finish. (review soon)
