*** Disclaimer in Part One***
Lipstick in Honeylove (matte):
I remember my friend wearing this on her birthday night out a few months back, and it is the most perfect nude. It’s not too light (I’m not a light lippie kinda gal) and not too dark. With pink and orange undertones, the colour is perfect to compliment every skin tone, 9/10.
Lipstick in Blankety (Amplified):
Yet another nude, but another nude swatch I fell in love with and had to have. This lipstick has pink and brown undertones, and leaves a slight shine on your lips: without losing any colour pay-off. Beautiful, 9/10.
Lipstick in Mehr (Matte):
I have been looking for a mid-toned pink lipstick that would suit me for a while. I am not the biggest fan of pink lipsticks (MAC’s Candy Yum Yum is my biggest nightmare), but not because I don’t like the colour. I generally just don’t think pink suits me very well, but admittedly, I haven’t gave them much of a chance. When I swatched Mehr in the MAC shop, I knew this was going to be sitting on my desk the following day. MAC’s Matte finishes are amazing in my opinion, so the finish sealed the deal. I’m so happy I got this, it’s a beautiful dark dusty pink colour, 10/10.
Lipstick in Amorous (satin):
This colour is perfect for Autumn which is the main reason why I bought it. It’s a plum colour with red undertones and has a beautiful shine finish. I thought I would spend my pennies on at least one different colour this shopping trip around, and I fulfilled my goal 🙂 Anyways, love this colour, can’t wait to wear it when the weather gets a bit chillier, 8/10.
Fix + / Prep N Prime:
I’ve wanted to try this out for quite a while. Setting sprays have only recently became the new ‘thing’ in makeup, and being impressed with Urban Decay’s All Nighter, I decided to give this one a go as well. This product is seemingly versatile: being a primer, a setting spray and a pigment enhancer. As usual, watching beauty tutorials on YouTube has influenced my decision; I’m very excited to give this a go. No rate as haven’t tried yet.
Paint Pot in Soft Ochre:
Practically every single new beauty YouTuber I have came across in the recent months has been using MAC’s paint pots religiously as a base for their eye shadow. When I received my voucher as a gift, I knew immediately the Soft Ochre paint pot would be on my list. This flesh-coloured eye shadow cream will provide a subtle base for your eye shadow, helping the pigmentation to stay put on your eyelids and prevent any fallout. I have yet to try this product, but I have high expectations!
From Real Techniques:
Deep Cleansing Brush Gel:
When I first saw this a few days ago when slavering over the beautiful limited edition brush range, my attention was immediately switched over. I currently use shampoo and warm water to clean my brushes, but I have been wanting a proper formula to carry out this tedious task that will not cost me an arm and a leg. I only picked this up a few hours ago so I have not tried this yet, looking forward to it.
From Morphe Brushes:
This palette contains 35 individual eye shadows both matte and shimmer. The colour scheme is Taupe and has all of the shadows you could possibly need to complete a brown/gold/bronze/purple smoky eye. I am very impressed with the quality of the shadows and the amount of variation in colours and shades. 35 amazing, high-end style shadows are extremely affordable in this palette, and is the best way to ensure versatility in your look. You have to order these palettes from America, as Morphe Brushes is a USA based brand. This unfortunately does mean shipping costs and waiting two weeks for delivery, but in my opinion it is 100% worth it, 10/10.
The description of this palette is exactly the same as the above ^ however, this palette does not have a particular colour scheme. The 35 eye shadows included are bright and colourful with amazing pigmentation and there probably isn’t a colour you could think of that isn’t included, 10/10.
