A Huge Beauty Haul!

So I’ve recently gotten a new job, and I’ve been earning a lot more money than I’m used to, which means one thing, and one thing only… Beauty Shopping!

When transferring from my old job to my new job, I went through a phase of getting paid from both, and having never seen so much money in my account at one time, I ended up spending a lot on beauty products…

My first stop for my shopping spree was Colour Pop. I’ve wanted to try Colour Pop for SO long, but knowing I would be graced with a huge custom fee slip I’ve always stopped myself from ordering. Recently I tried a friends highlighter from the brand and completely fell in love with it, and it was that, that inspired me to do an order finally.

So the first thing in my basket was said Highlighter- The Super Shock Highlighter in the shade Flexitarian. This highlighter is gorgeous! Its a beautiful champagne shade, that suits my skin tone so well. The texture of it is so interesting too! Its like a hybrid of a cream and a powder. Its so smooth and silky and look so beautiful on the skin.

I also picked up the Give It To Me Straight eyeshadow palette, which is beautiful! Its a warm toned neutral palette and the shades are so pigmented and creamy! Its my current go-to palette! I also wanted to try one of the individual shadows, so I got the shade Sequin, which is a rusty, glitter shade, and its BEAUTIFUL!

The last few bits I got are the Brow Boss Pencil in Dark Brown, the Creme Gel Eyeliner in HoneyDude, Two Lippie Pencils in BFF and Clique, A Lippie Stix in Brink and the Concealer in Fair 02.

I absolutely LOVE everything I got, and I wish I’d done an order ages ago!

I haven’t bought any brushes in ages, and I defiantly needed some new eye ones in my collection. I have a couple of face brushes from Spectrum which I love so I decided to pick up some eye ones! I got the You Look Marbleous 8 Piece eye set, and I absolutely love them! They’re so soft, and they look so chic! Would definitely recommend!

Feel Unique were having a really good deal, and I was in desperate need of some new skincare, so I grabbed a few bits! The deal  was spend £80 on Skincare and get £90 worth for free, so of course I spent £80! I picked up the Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask. I’ve had this before and loved it, so this was a great repurchase for me. I’ve wanted to try The Ordinary Lactic Acid for SO LONG, so I finally got my hands on it, and it hasn’t disappointed yet! My skin is looking incredible since using it! I also got the Kiehls Glow Formula Skin Hydrator, which is honestly Incredible! I’ve been skipping out on foundation so much recently because of this. Its gives my skin a gorgeous, tinted glow, that makes me look so healthy. Absolutely love it!

My favourite thing from this order has the be the Nugg Mermaid Marine Peel Off Mask. This is a super thick mask, that dries down to a rubber like texture. Its super cool, and it feels really tingly and fresh on the skin which was so relaxing. My skin felt incredible after using this and I need a life times supply of them ASAP!

My last purchase was defiantly an impulse buy, and was heavily encouraged by a friend, but I definitely do not regret it! The Luna Beauty- Life’s A Drag palette was released on Beauty Bay and I couldn’t not get it! I’m a sucker for a versatile palette and this one has such a good mix of neutral and fun colours. The shades are gorgeous and creamy, and those two shimmers are INSANE! Also can we take a moment to appreciate how MASSIVE this palette! The pans are huge, and its such heavy, luxurious feeling palette. Absolutely LOVE.

I think I’m all spent out on Beauty Products for the next LONG while!

Review | NARSissist Loaded Palette

DSC_3044

This is the most dreamy palette I have ever owned! The NARS Loaded palette consists of 12 beautiful neutral shades, in a variety of matte and shimmer formulas.

I was pretty hesitant to buy this due to the hefty price tag, but its a limited edition palette and being a makeup artist I felt like I had to have it.

As I mentioned before the palette is full of gorgeous neutral shades, all of which I have already used, and each one is as beautiful as it looks. Each shade has such a creamy, easily bendable formula, and I’ve had little to no fall out from the darker shades.

I’ve used this palette on clients already and each look has been stunning. The colours are so versatile. You can create a stunning, everyday look as well as a dark, vampy evening look.

Can we also just take a moment to appreciate the packaging of this palette?! A little impractical, yes, but so stunning! The mirrored effect is pretty handy, and its gold! So whats not to love!

Honestly, this is one of the best palettes I own, and I’m so glad I bit the bullet and bought it!

Summer Beauty Essentials

DSC_3033DSC_3041

Summer may not be my favourite time of the year. Yes, I’m one of those people who enjoy cold weather and layers of clothes, but the one thing I do love about summer is being able to wear glowing, peachy makeup.

Heres a little look into some of my essential products for summer…

  • Too Faced Sweet Peach palette! I absolutely LOVE this palette! Not only does it smell delicious but the colours are also beautiful! The palette has a selection of both neutral, everyday shades, as well as a few bolder colours to create really fun looks with. I love using the green on my lower lash line!
  • MAC Fix+ is a must for summer! Although the weathers not great in the UK, we still get the occasional hot days and this works great at keeping my makeup in place, and stopping me from looking like a sweaty mess! Highly recommend!
  • The Iconic London Illuminator in the shade ‘Original’ is STUNNING!  Its a liquid illuminator and my god is this glowy! It can be used mixed with your primer/foundation, or as a highlighter and both ways are beautiful. This is a favourite product of mine! I’m literally obsessed!
  • Next is the Kryolan cream liner in ‘Turquoise Breeze’. I love all of Kryolan’s cream liners. I think the formula is amazing and they do not budge at all. This particular colour is stunning for summer! I recently wore it to a wedding with a neutral eye, and it gave a gorgeous pop of colour to my eyes!
  • The Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel is a cream bronzer that I literally go back to every single summer without fail. Its the perfect bronze shade, without being too orange and the cream formula goes on so smoothly! I’m most definitely due a new one of these soon!
  • Lastly the Victorias Secret Body Spray in the scent ‘Love Spell’ is one of my favourite scents! It has such a sweet, summery smell to it, and although I wear this pretty much all year round, it does really give me those summer time feels whenever I spray it.

So those are my summer beauty essentials! I literally couldn’t recommend this products enough! Although as much as I love wearing them, I am counting down the days until Autumn!
