I guess you could say I went a little over the top with my makeup purchases this time but who cares right? 😀 I wanted to get my hands on a few makeup items for a while now and I got 10% off everything so I couldn’t help myself. I’m really excited to share with you what I bought and if you want a in depth review on any of the products shown in this post please let me know in the comments and I’ll gladly do that for you! I also have a drugstore makeup haul coming your way sometime this or next week so stay tuned for that!
I blame fellow blogger Zuzana Humajova for this purchase, in a good way though! I don’t know what it is about her but everything she buys, I buy 😀 Maybe it’s her stunning photography that makes me want to buy everything she shares! Oh well, I got my hands on the new Clinique Lip Pop Lipstick & Primer in the shades 09 Sweet Pop and 10 Punch Pop. Sweet Pop is a beautiful everyday pink it’s just so easy so slick on. Punch Pop is probably my favourite, it’s just such a chic and bright hot pink colour with blue undertones. I love this kind of colour because it suits fair skin (which is great because I’m such a lazy bum when it comes to self tanning) They feel incredibly nourishing, and the texture really does melt in to the lips. What I love about this is that it’s a primer and lip colour in one – helps filling in the fine lines so that the colours can go on properly. Definitely a winner!
I’m a huge lipstick person and I think it’s such an essential step in my routine. My makeup just doesn’t feel complete without applying lipstick. I’ve heard great things about the Zoeva Luxe Cream Lipsticks so I picked up two shades. Pop Stitch, a gorgeous bright pink shade, perfect for summer and Melting Kisses, a beautiful soft orange-y colour. I don’t own any orange lipsticks in my collection so this was a must have for me! Both lipsticks have a smooth creme finish with a bit of shine, they’re incredibly comfortable to wear too! The lipstick comes in a grey metallic packaging but the thing that caught my fancy was the magnetic caplock, which makes it perfect to carry around in your purse. Also from Zoeva, I got two brushes, 126 Luxe Cheek Brush and 228 Luxe Crease Brush. I adore Zoeva brushes, they’re really affordable and work so well!
I’m so so excited about these next two purchases! I finally got my hands on Mac’s Soft & Gentle Highlighter! A cult classic, I have no idea how I’ve only just bought this. My best friend actually got this highlighter a few weeks ago and she was raving about how much she loves it so I had to give it a go! It’s a gorgeous peachy champagne colour and I can’t wait to use it in my next tutorial! I then bought one of the new Urban Decay Afterglow Blushes in the shade Fetish. Kathleen mentioned this blush in her recent makeup haul and it looked absolutely gorgeous! It’s a beautiful everyday pink shade!
Last but not least I had to get my hands on the new Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Foundation. I got matched to the shade 03 Buttercream and it’s seriously the perfect match for my skin tone! This foundation feels so light on the skin and I can definitely see myself wearing this constantly during summer! Expect a review on this beauty in a few weeks 🙂
