Good morning loves! I thought I’d give you guys a look at some of the new makeup I’ve acquired recently and there is a fair amount. Obviously it wS my birthday this month so most of it was purchased with reckless, happy birthday abandon. Enjoy!
Now as you can see from the above photo I have in my possession the illustrious Moonchild Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. My sister got me this for my birthday and I was sooo surprised as when she asked me what I wanted (and I requested this pallette) she said it was a bit too pricey. So I instead picked a new purse which she also got me. I was admiring the purse and then she came I’m with the Moonchild and I was over the moon (pun intended!)
Just look how pretty! The colours are crazy and unicorn-esque and I can’t wait to play about with them. I’ll post reviews and swatches of everything I show you here once I’ve had time to properly test them. By the way if anyone can recommend a good highlighter brush I’m on the look out.
I spent the day at the Metro Centre with my mother to gleefully spend some of my birthday money and this is one of my purchases. Its pretty difficult to get your hands on Mac in England especially when you live in a small town, so I was there for quite a while, deliberating. I had also bought a Mac Pro Longwear concealer, which the girl matched to me in store. Unfortunately when I got home and tried it myself it was too dark, which was slightly rage inducing. It did fit my mams shade perfectly though so it got re-homed.
Now I loooove Macs lipsticks, especially the matte ones. I’ve quite a collection of them now. I went for pink plaid, which is a lovely rosey/nudey pink that’s not too girly and very wearable.
Let’s keep the lipstick theme going shall we. This one is Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in the shade Rock n Roll Nude. So I was reading Cosmo (as you do) and the beauty editor mentioned she was obsessed with this lipstick, stating it will make you look like Bridget Bardot. So I thought I’d give it a go. It. Is. Beautiful. It really is a gorgeous nude and makes your lips look so pillowy. And it really does last. Rimmel is crazy affordable too, I got this on offer for less than £5.00 Amazing right?
This is a bit of a boring one but we all need mascara right? I firmly believe that mascara is one of those makeup products that you really don’t need to go high end on. Don’t get me wrong, there are some expensive mascaras that I love (hello Lancome Hypnose) but I also like this one too and it’s a fraction of the price. Most mascara formulas are basically the same, no matter the brand and in my opinion it’s all about the brush anyway. This gives a lot of length and really separates the lashes. There’s no clumping here. The only thing I always find lacking in most mascaras is getting any thickness as I have fine lashes. If anyone has any recommendations please comment!
Wait till you see the colours on this bad bitch.
I could not believe my eyes when I saw this on Superdrug. I’ve never even came across this brand before. I’m pretty sure it’s exclusive to Superdrug so that could be the reason – I’m a Boots girl through and through. And the brand is so cheap. This whole palette was £6.00 *shocked face*
This is the Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Blush palette by Makeup Revolution and it’s divine. Honestly the colours are so pigmented and bright. I don’t think I’ll be able to use most of them as blusher, I’d be seen from space! This is definitely a highlighter kit for me. I used it the first night I got it on my eyes also and it makes lovely eyeshadow. A full review will be forthcoming. But seriously. If your English get your cute butt to Superdrug and check this brand out. There are so many other blush palettes too, I had the hardest time picking between them. Next payday my pretties.
A few eye products for you. The Autograph eyeshadow stick is like silver highlighter in creme form. Its super pigmented and brilliant for the inner corner of your eye and to highlight your cupids bow. I haven’t played around with it much yet but as with everything I will do a review.
I’ve wanted to try Nyx for so long but it was never here in England until recently. My local Boots suddenly had a huge Nyx counter with everything on it. Now I always have my trusty Urban Decays eyeshadow primer, so I didn’t really need this for priming. I wanted a good white base for certain eyeshadow looks and picked this up on a whim. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Last but not least are the most beautiful makeup brushes I have ever seen. And do you know where they came from? Wilkos! Of all God damn places they came from a house ware shop. They are really good too. The powder brush is soooo soft and the handles are made of some sort of dense, soft rubber. They’re gorgeous.
Anyway that has been my ridiculously long makeup post. If you made it to here I commend you for your perseverance. Kisses.
