Makeup Haul – Priceline

So last night I went out for Thursday night shopping with a friend and we found ourselves in Priceline. Not even kidding we would have been there for like an hour so I just wanted to share quickly the products I got.

Firstly, I got the L’Oreal true match foundation because I had heard so many beauty guru’s on YouTube rave about it. I put it on this morning and so far so good. It is very light on the skin but the coverage isn’t as good and I hoped. (Side note: if you were wondering I got shade W2 and it was $24.33 on sale)

Secondly, I picked up eyebrow gel. Never used a product before so it was weird when I first applied it but I definitely like it.

Image

Thirdly, I got an essence lip gloss. Its a nice nude colour so I cant wait to try it out.

 I also got three amazing nail polishes. I swear I have way too many but they were only $2.75 and they look so fresh and bright so how could I refuse.

Image

Last but not least,ImageI got a Manicare blending brush. Haven’t used this one yet so cant wait to see what its like!

 

Anyways that’s me. Have a good weekend lovely’s.

MAKE UP DON’TS

Time and time again I see girls break key makeup don’t rules so in this post I just wanted to point a few of these out.

 

Firstly, wearing foundation that is too dark. Yes we all want to be the dark natural tan shade but in reality we are most likely light porcelain! If you don’t know what shade you are, ask someone when you go to buy foundation. Avoid the dodgy makeup neck line and match your foundation to your skin puhhleeeeeeeease.

Secondly, adding too much blush and bronzer. Honey, we got it three layers ago, no need to keep piling it on. And while on that topic, don’t contour too much. Sometimes less is more.

Thirdly, wearing ridiculous eye shadow colours. Once again, less is more. Keep it simple. If you don’t know how to apply eye shadow correctly its best not to apply it at all.

Fourthly, lipstick. Surely it’s not just me who knows if you do big smoky eyes you keep a simple lip and if you want bold lips keep the eyes simple. Like common ladies, common sense! You can’t have your cake and eat it too. And while on topic, don’t overdraw your lips. It looks tacky.

Fifthly, EYEBROWS! We all know strong eyebrows are all the rave right now. But need I just remind you there is a fine line between nice structured eyebrows and HOLY CRAP YOU CLOWN! And boy do I know a few clowns haha.

Anyways they are my makeup donts. There are many more I could add but I shall save those for a rainy day.

IM BACK! And do I have good news for you :)

So I’m back from China! It was incredible. Such an amazing experience which I will surely blog about soon, but I just had to write a quick post on an amazing find.

So I’m sure many of you beauty enthusiasts have heard all the rave about the Naked 2 palette. But I’m sure it wasn’t just me who was a little turned off by the steep price no matter how much the beauty guru’s raved about it.

Well I have great news for you.

I have found a dupe or maybe you’d call it a fake/copy.

But I have used this palette and its basically identical. Colours are the same, still pigmented and it even comes with the double sided brush. The only thing wrong with it was that the mirror was plastic.

AND WHATS BETTER?

It was $12 like #winning 

So here is the link and go grab yourself one would you. You will not regret it! :)

Please note it does take a while to come in the post.
