Beauty Haul

Hello everybody!

So over the weekend I made a little trip to a little shop known as Sephora... I went with the remainder of my Christmas money in, hand and let's just say I don't have that money anymore. I also received a target gift card, for a lovely 60$ (thanks uncle robert and aunt leslyn!) and that also went to some cosmetic purchases...

The first two items from Sephora are the boi-ing concealer from benefit, and the bobbi brown tone corrector. 
The concealer covers everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. It's advertised as an industrial strength concealer. And it's fantastic and doesn't crease, provides great coverage and I definitely recommend this product. 
The tone corrector from bobbi brown, is perfect for covering up dark spots, skins discolorations, bruises, etc. It is magic in a pot. I bought it primarily because I have dark skin discolorations below my temples and just plain concealer wasn't doing the trick. So I swapped to a combination of the time corrector then covered by concealer, and you would never know I had skin discolorations. I highly, highly recommend these products. 

Then next things I picked up were some nail polishes/paints/lacquers/varnishes! 
I bought the essie nail paints from target and I just love them, and think that they're perfect for autumn/winter. The darker shade (carry on) I will primarily wear in autumn/winter while the lighter one (sand tropez) can be worn all year round since it a lovely beige shade. 
The middle shade I am currently sporting on my nails I bought at sephora and it is gorgeous! It's their Formula X line of nail paints and I think it's called perfection(?) not totally sure. But it looks fantastic for autumn and winter. I am so in love all three shades!

These are the last three things I got from sephora. 
I bought the Naked Skin liquid foundation by Urban Decay in shade 4.0, and it is brilliant, it's light and it barely feels like you're wearing foundation made of clouds. 
I also bought a NARS blusher in the shade Gaiety, and it's just so pretty! It's gives you this slightly 'I've been out in the cold' rosiness that just look gorgeous, it's a really nice matte blusher. 
And I also got a small pot of rose radiance by bare minerals which came in a set my Mum bought and she gave it to me, because she already has a bigger version. It's a beautiful mineral blusher with gold flecks in, that just gives you a warm glow. Perfect for winter or all year round if you fancy.

Here are the two pieces of eye makeup that I purchased at Target, mascara and a new eye pencil. 
I bought the falsies volume express mascara by maybelline which I haven't tried yet but I've been wanting too for quite some time now. A lot of people swear by it so I hope it lives up to it's reputation! 
The eye pencil I bought is a pixi endlessly silky eye pencil in black cocoa, and I kid you not, it is THE best eye liner I have ever used. I only ever used to use the 24/7 glide on eye pencil by urban decay, I used to swear by it. But no longer! The pixi endlessly silky eye pencil is even better (I didn't even know that was possible) and a nice little bonus is that it's only 12$. So go and buy yourself a nice new eye pencil!

And last but certainly not least my lip products! 
The first is a Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in shade 477 Black Cherry, and it's a gorgeous dark plum colour optimal for autumn/winter, but an also be worn all year round. I wore it today and got many a compliment. :) 
The next is a Revlon lip butter, I got a new one! This one is shade 027 Juicy Papaya and it's a really nice peachy color. It's perfect for spring and summer or if you want to bring a little pop of color to your winter makeup/apparel. I love the lip butters, because they're a perfect cross between a tinted balm and a lipstick, ultra moisturizing, with lots of pigment. They are amazing. 
And lastly a maybelline baby lips, lip balm in quenched SPF 20. It's just a nice clear balm to wear underneath my lipsticks and I know so many people who raved about and love these balms, but after using it all week, I'm honestly a little underwhelmed. :/ Don't get me wrong it's great and it does feel ultra sleek and smooth when it goes on, and its quite moisturizing  which is super lovely. But I think it was a bit too hyped up.

I will leave links below to where you can purchase everything I have mentioned above. I hope you have enjoyed, and found something new to try!

Much love & Glitter
