So after a long awaited pay day I decided to dabble into the world of online shopping. I clicked on Feelunique and as we all know online shopping is one of the easiest ways to add a bit of joy to a day.
On the front page they had an offer. Score! So I read through the page to see how much I had to spend to get a bag of freebies and started a slow perusal of the site.
First I went to the skincare section as I recently ran out of my favourite facial oil Emu Oil Well Rosehip Emu Oil 50ml. I love this for a deep oil cleanse or to hydrate the skin. It is a heavy oil that sinks into the skin quite slowly but its worth it for the results.
The other skin care item I picked up is the Sukin Rose Hip Oil 25ml I picked this up so I could use this when I don’t have the time to wait for the Rosehip Emu Oil to sink into my skin. I’ve only used it once but it is a light oil that is more comfortable on the skin in that it’s not as sticky and sinks in much quicker.
I then remembered that I had run out of my favourite quick spray brush cleaner the bareMinerals® Quick Change Brush Cleaner 110ml this is the fastest drying brush cleaning spray. I am able to use a brush a second after using it. Which is brilliant when using bright eye colours on your favourite blending brush.
After this I went to the makeup section and went through the different sections. I picked up a couple *cough* things including: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 6ml Chantilly favourite concealer, NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick 4.5g 22 Strawbrry Daiquiri stunning and really pigmented! Most beautiful colour perfect for everyday and NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette and NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette 20g are both beautiful palettes, I have used each palette once but after a heavy swatching session I knew I would be buying these for my best friends birthday! Last year, I bought her first birthday present in April in full awareness that I wouldn’t be able to gift it to her for another 8 months.
I also picked up the new Max Factor Colour Elixir Velvet Matte Lipstick 4g 05 Nude Max Factor brought out a new line of lipsticks and I am in love the formula for these are matte but not drying at all I wore this lipstick and it lasted through a work shift and my lipsticks never last unless I use a matte liquid lipstick formula. If you are looking for a new matte lipstick formula I suggest you try these!
I repurchased Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray which is my favourite and also picked up the Maybelline New York SuperStay24 Make Up Locking Spray 75ml I’ve tried it twice and I’m not the biggest fan so far but I’ve only tried it twice the first time I didn’t shake it and it ruined my makeup by spraying white specks all over my face and I couldn’t buff them away. The second time I did shake the bottle but forgot to check how my make up lasted through the day.
The last two products I picked up are the NYX Professional Makeup Baked Blush 6.5g 04 Solstice and the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil 2.4g Bettina. The blush is pretty as a topper but would probably work better on a darker skin tone I just tap off the excess off my brush and apply minimal product. The Bettina Lip Pencil confused me it says in the name matte but it has a weird sheen a nearly metallic sheen which confused me. I still wear it but I am slightly disappointed that I wasn’t getting a matte formula.
If you want a more indepth review on anything leave it in the comments and I will post asap a full review.
Have a great day. X
P.S. Sorry about the terrible photos. I didn’t have time to present them properly as I had to leave for work.
