Confession time – I went on a little bit of a splurge the other day and it wasn’t of the drugstore variety. It was high end all the way! After watching a bazillion youtube beauty videos lately I had a rather large list of products that I was dying to try so I headed off into town to see what I could get my hands on.
I started at the MAC counter and managed to only purchase one product, it was hard but I did it. I picked up an old favourite MAC Studio Fix in NW22, this is just such a beautiful product to set your foundation. It leaves your skin baby soft and smooth, it also evens out any little bit of redness that my foundation and concealer missed. Next I headed over to Mecca Cosmetica to try out the Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadows, I swatched a few colours and couldn’t go past Himalia a beautiful light bronze colour that is stunning on the eyelid. You can use these eyeshadows both wet and dry so I can’t wait to try this wet to up the ante of this colour. The next purchase is a very special one, I have never owned a Tom Ford product before so I was super excited to by my first one! I thought I would go with his classic Wild Ginger Lipstick and I tell you what I am not disappointed one bit! It is such a flattering orange red colour that I want to wear it every darn day.
Next up are two products from Benefit, I’ve heard mixed reviews about their They’re Real Push Up Liner so I thought I would give it a go myself. I’ve tried it twice now and I’m in two minds about it, I first used it to do a winged liner and it flaked and smudged a fair bit so the next time I tried it I just pushed it into the lash line making a very thin line. This time it didn’t flake or smudge at all and it looked great, it made my lashed look thicker which was great so I think I’ll just continue to use it this way. Finally I picked up the Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep, I already own this in the lighter shade but at the moment my hair is dark so I really needed the darker shade to match it. I absolutely love this product, its perfect for on the go to just subtly fill in and sparseness and add colour. I have to say I think this will always be a part of my makeup collection.
What do you guys think of my choices? Can you add any products to my wish list?
Also I just wanted to let you know I am changing my posting schedule due to my uni and work so I will be putting up new posts on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.
