I have been on a pretty strict budget lately. But, I have also been allocating myself a small amount out of this budget to treat myself to some new goodies! This weeks blog post is a small one all about my recent beauty purchases! If you would like to see a more in-depth post on any of the products I mention, please leave me a comment and let me know.
Let’s get into it!
Maybelline Super Stay 24H Full Coverage Foundation – I have heard so many good things about this foundation and decided that it was about time that I tried it out for myself. I have a handful of foundations in my collection that are my go to, so I never tend to use anything other than those. I have tried this out once since I brought it and so far so good! It is said to be a long wearing full coverage foundation that leaves the skin looking matte and flawless. I agree with the matte and long-wearing part, however, I would say that it is a medium coverage that is build-able.
L’oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation – again, this is another foundation that I have heard so many good things about and decided it was about time to try it out for myself. I am yet to try this one, so I am yet to form an opinion on it, however it is said to be a super hydrating, lightweight, long-wearing, medium coverage foundation for normal to dry skin beauties. Can’t wait to test this one out, I will share more info about it after I try it over on my Instagram. So follow me on there to keep updated!
Models Prefer Facial Cleansing Brush – I have owned this facial cleansing brush previously before and absolutely loved it. I had to get rid of it when I moved as I noticed it was looking a little worse for wear. I missed it so much so I had to pick it up from Priceline again! It is a dual speed spinning brush head which deep cleans your skin. It comes with a soft brush head, latex sponge and a silicone massaging disc (which is what I use). I love using it at the end of the day to get rid of all the dirt, makeup and whatever gross stuff I have sitting on my skin and it leaves my skin feeling so nice and clean.
Maybelline Master Conceal Concealer – if you have read any of my previous makeup bag posts, then you have probably seen this concealer before. I already own the light shade and I use it regularly in my makeup routine because it is an amazing full coverage concealer. However, the light shade is slightly wrong for my pale skin tone, so I have been needing to pick it up in the lightest shade, and you guessed it, I finally did! This concealer is said to be full coverage, high resistant concealer that camouflages imperfections and dark circles, and I 100% agree with what it claims to be!
BYS Super Slim Mascara – I feel like everyone in the beauty world has mentioned the Mac Cosmetics Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara at some point. So I found what I believe is a $9 version of that! Granted, I have never actually tried the Mac Mascara, I feel like I have seen it being used in that many beauty YouTube videos that I can understand what it’s all about. When I spotted the BYS Super Slim Mascara in Kmart I thought ‘why not’. This Mascara claims to capture every single lash with its ultra-fine micro brush that delivers volume to even the smallest of lashes. I have used it once already (only on my bottom lashes) and I really liked it! Definitely, something I want to play around more with though.
OXX Studio Illuminator – I really enjoy looking at the affordable makeup each time I go to Kmart, however, I never really pick anything up. I finally took the plunge and grabbed this illuminator from Kmart’s own brand OXX. It claims to add a pop of shine to every look and create a stunning glow. I haven’t used it yet, but if I am being honest, the way it looks in the jar worries me (very oily). I will definitely keep you updated on my thoughts of this one.
Juvia’s Place Eyeshadow Palettes – ever since Nikkie Tutorials started raving about the brand Juvia’s Place I knew I wanted to get my hands on some of their products. I definitely had a ‘treat yourself’ moment when I purchased three of their eyeshadow palettes from Black Swallow. I picked up The Saharan Palette, which is a vibrant 12 panned palette, The Saharan 2, which is a beautiful 9 panned palette, and The Zulu palette, which is a very bright and colourful 9 panned palette. I have only used one so far, but I can say that Nikkie Tutorials is definitely onto something here guys!
