So this all started with the thought process of new year, new makeup! Well, mostly I just wanted to do a little shopping… But who doesn’t love a good haul! Am I right? So let’s take a little look at some of the beauty items I’ve picked up in the past few weeks.
Okay, so I went a little primer crazy. I’ve been using the Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer for a long time now and I still really love it, but my skin has been changing a little and I wanted to try some new ones! First I picked up the Too Faced Hangover Primer. I’ve heard good things about this stuff and after the first couple uses I think I’m going to really like it. I also picked up the little travel sizes of the Makeup Forever Matifying and Smoothing primers. My t-zone has been very oily and I’m looking for something to combat that and I’ve heard nothing but good things about these ones.
Sticking with Makeup Forever products (which I have seemed to pick up a lot of) I picked up two of their foundations. Now you’re probably thinking “TWO?! Why do you need two of basically the same foundation?” Well I have no idea why but I just couldn’t decide between the two of them. I’ve been wanting to get the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Liquid Foundation for a while now because I had a sample and loved it. I have also seen so many people raving about the Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation and I wasn’t going to purchase it but after swatching it in store I couldn’t help myself.
Now to set all of those products I bought the Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray and MAC Prep + Prime Fix +. I really love the Urban Decay setting sprays and have been using them for a while now so this was just a repurchase. Also you can’t go wrong with a little Fix+ in your life! The last little tidbits I picked up were the Sephora Brand brush cleaner, which I have yet to use but Shelby loves it, and is also $5 cheaper than the Beauty Blender brand so I thought I would give it a try. From MAC I also picked up one of their new Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours in “Oh, Lady” which is described as a deep wine colour. It was just too pretty not to buy and who doesn’t love a liquid lipstick. Lastly I grabbed one of the mini pigment in “Vanilla” because I have been wanting it for ages and it was right at the till, so I thought why not!
Have any of you tried these products or have picked up anything new this year? Let me know in the comments!
