Hey guys! Today I have, as my snapchat followers will know – one of my most exciting posts for me! I am absolutely obsessed with Sephora, and obviously had to ask my brother to bring me back some goodies from Dubai.
This isn’t the biggest haul in the world but the stuff I got, I am IN LOVE.
- Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer | 102 Tantric
This bronzer is extremely buttery and is the easiest bronzer to blend, in my opinion. I would say it is for medium skin tones, because I wear this with a bit of tan but its not overbearing or mucky on the face. I do love the colour, but it is the formula of this bronzer that made me fall in love. I really look forward to using it during the summer, as it is so buildable and you don’t end up looking orange or too brown. This bronzer retails for $49 and you get .8 oz in it. This is so much product especially for a bronzer. Overall I would definitely recommend it, even though it is a big pricey.
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick | Pure Hollywood
This purchase was one I hadn’t put much thought into because I knew I liked the colour and I trust the brand and their products. I did NOT think I’d be this impressed. The texture is moussy but thin at the same time. It feels like you have absolutely nothing on your lips and it is definitely the most moisturising liquid lip I have ever used. I didn’t use a liner with it, so it didn’t stay totally on, but again that was after an 8 hour day of working in a bust environment so thats not exactly a complaint. It was such a comfortable formula to wear and the colour is perfect for my skin tone. It retails for $20 but I already know it will last very long because I used very little when applying it, and didn’t really have to reapply throughout the day, until the very end.
3. Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette | Rose Gold Edition
This palette is a purchase I definitely put a lot of thought into (including dreaming about it at night and during the day, hahah!). I have only used the matte colours so far so I can’t speak for the chrome pressed pearls or 3D metal eyeshadows just yet. However as seen on my snapchat (@basicchic17) the matte shades lasted all day and didn’t fade at all. I have never used eyeshadows that have such a long lasting formula on the eyes. I did find that one of the shades in particular didn’t blend as well, but that could be my brush wasnt totally clean from the previous shade. I will report back on my snapchat as always! Overall really love this palette and its definitely worth the money especially if you have blue or green eyes. It retails for $65 with 18 shades. Initially it sounds very expensive but when you break it down it is value for money.
4. Too Cool For School | Egg Cream Mask Hydration
Ok, so this mask was done right before I put makeup on which was a total mistake. I didn’t see proper results because I was trying to rush the process to get to work on time and slap on some makeup. I shouldn’t have done that! However when I did remove the mask it left my face tacky and feeling hydrated. I loved how it felt I just wish I didn’t apply makeup straight after. It would be a fab mask to do on a pamper day. And no, it doesn’t smell like eggs, haha! It retails for $6 per mask but it works out cheaper at $24 for 5 masks. They are so affordable, and I’d suggest buying the single one to test out whether or not you like it.
