New Makeup Purchases

Saturday, May 07, 2016


Hey guys! Recently I've acquired quite a few new makeup items, most of which I have been seriously loving! I thought I'd share my thoughts on some of them with you all. Oh, and please don't go thinking I spent my life savings on these because a lot were bought at the Priceline 40% off sale recently, and a gift card I had to use at Myer! #bargainhunter

EYES:

Maybelline The Nudes Palette. Confession time-this is the first proper eyeshadow palette I've owned. I love it so much! The colours are all gorgeous, so easy to use and really blendable. There's so many looks you can create with this and I love that it has suggestions on the back as well.

Revlon Photoready Eye Art in 060-Peach Prism. I've been lusting after these for SO long, they're absolutely stunning! I chose one of the most neutral colours I could find as there's a lot of very pigmented blue and green shades in the range, which look gorgeous but I'm not sure I'd ever find the excuse to wear! The cream base side is lovely to use and is super long lasting. I'm not so sure about the glittery side, I think I'm still working out how to use it, but the sparkle is just beautiful!

Australis Eyeshadow Primer. This is my first eyeshadow primer and I'm kicking myself that I've never used one before! It makes everything look so much brighter and last so much longer, I love it!

Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara. I was quite dubious of this when I first unwrapped it, as it has the tiniest mascara wand I've ever seen...and it claims to be super lengthening and volumising! However after using it a few times I'm really liking it-it takes a little more effort to get the effect you want but it's so worth it as it seperates and lengthens your lashes really nicely!

LIPS:

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in 050-London Posh. This is definitely my least favourite of these recent purchases... the consistency is very strange and sticky, the colour doesn't go on evenly and doesn't stay very long either. I'm not too impressed with these, which is disappointing as think the packaging is gorgeous and would have loved to have more in my collection!

Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in 107. I finally caved in and bought this one after seeing recommendations for it literally everywhere! I also rather love the fact that it's a lipstick with my name on it-score! It smells amazing, a really fruity/berry kind of scent in my opinion, and it has a lovely smooth texture. I haven't actually worn it properly yet so I can't comment on it's staying power, but I'm hoping for good things!


FACE:
Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation in 120-Classic Ivory. I've been considering trying this for quite a while as I've seen a lot of good reviews. So when I saw it on sale for half price the decision was easy! The colour is a pretty perfect match for my skin tone which is great, and it has fairly good coverage-a little lighter than I might have preferred but still good.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10-Light. I really like the colour of this, it's really good for highlighting and brightening your face. I haven't quite found a way to stop it creasing yet though, and I do still like the age rewind concealer a bit more. Nevertheless it's my go-to concealer at the moment!

Have you guys tried any of these products? I'd love to hear what you think of them!
