Without a doubt, purchasing makeup is my weakness, I LOVE trying out new products! A lot of these products I have received as birthday gifts or have purchased over the past few weeks!
The first product that’s new in my makeup bag is the Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Princess Cut. I have heard great things about these skin frosts so I have been wanting to try one for a while, and I thought that this shade was perfect! This is a beautiful intense icy pink highlighter, which is my favourite shade of highlighter! The Kat Von D Lock-It’ Creme Concealer is the next new addition in my makeup bag, and while I have only used it a few times, on first impressions, I really like it! I bought it in a super light shade, which is perfect for my under-eye area as it stays all day and completely brightens up my face! One of the newest products in my makeup bag is the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in the shade Mona Lisa, which is a long-lasting, cream eyeshadow. This is one of the nicest, easiest to blend, pigmented cream eye shadows that I have ever tried and is highly comparable to the Tom Ford Creme Colour For Eyes! I definitely would like to buy the other shades to add to my collection!
Moving onto a mini birthday haul, I received a few makeup items from friends and am so in love with everything I received. The first product I received was theBalm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette, inside, you get 12 eyeshadows and six half-naked men. This was my first time trying out eyeshadows from theBalm and I have to say that I’ve been very impressed; they’re so pigmented and so buttery smooth! I also was lucky enough to receive a Clinique Crayola™ Chubby Stick Intense Moisturising Lip Colour Balm! I have used this a couple of times and I have found it to be gorgeously creamy and moisturising, which is perfect for winter/spring! Another birthday treat that I am already in love with is the Sleek Makeup Precious Metals Highlighting Palette! If you know me, you know that highlighting is an essential part of my everyday makeup routine and this is AMAZING! All highlighters in this palette are of a high-end quality and since they’re so good, I have decided that my next purchase will be the Solstice Highlighting Palette.
