For the past 4 or so months, my spending when it comes to makeup has been minimal, if not non-existent to an extent. Adulting comes first sadly. Regardless, I got some gift-cards for my birthday, as well as participating in the Priceline 40% off sale a while back, so I figured I would share what I got (I have to make it worth it, am I right?).
First up are the goodies I got from Mecca thanks to a gift-card I got for my birthday! I had been eyeing off the Bare Minerals Translucent Powder Duo for a while now, and I decided to just go for it. Truth be told…I regret it. If It wasn’t for the fact that I didn’t spend my own money on it, I would be truly gutted. The concept is amazing, offering both a matte and glowy setting powder, however I just don’t see it making a difference! Like with all things, I will give it a solid try first until I form a final opinion, so stay tuned for a review in the near future.
The Too Faced Born This Way Foundation has been on my wishlist for a while now, however originally I decided against buying it as I felt the shades were too dark. I am SO glad I picked this up as it has definitely become a holy grail product for me! I don’t want to dive too much into the nitty gritty as I want to do a full review, however I really love this so far!
I can’t begin to describe how much I loooooove this next product. It’s freaking amazing! This is the most extravagant item I have purchased, makeup wise, probably ever. The Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Palette was the MAIN purchase from Mecca with my gift card, and I am in love. It is perfect for a million different looks, and is a makeup collector’s dream!
Priceline 40% off sales are usually the way to my heart, but this time around I limited myself. I did pick up a few other bits, but this product was the real MVP that I was eyeing off. The NYX Wonder Pencil in Light is a multi-purpose product, but I mainly got it for the waterline to make me look more awake. I am still testing it out, among some similar products from other brands so I will keep you posted.
Lastly, but certainly not least, is the new L’Oreal Sexy Balm in the shade 201 Wasted. I stumbled across these at a local chemist and swatched a few, and this shade just called out to me. It is the PERFECT winter shade; dark, berry, and super shiny. To make it even more perfect, there was a huge introductory sale on it, so I managed to pick it up for $7.95…BARGAIN!
That is MOSTLY it so far for my current haulage, however knowing me, there will be more to come in the near future. x
