So I thought as I received some makeup for Christmas that I would share with you what I got, including what I do and don’t like so here goes!
First of all I got one of those makeup boxes from Benefit which includes a bronzer, mascara, Beam highlight and Gimme Brow.
They’re real Mascara (£19.50)okay so .. I like to put it on, but I tell you .. It is a right biatch to get off .. I mean someone pass me a damn shovel! I like the brush and the way it looks but I don’t know if I would buy it again purely for the fact it’s so hard to get off, maybe if I used a really oily makeup remover it would work, but I would rather be without the hassle, thanks Benefit but no thanks.
The Hoola Benefit Bronzer (£23.50) I love this and I use this bronzer already so I cannot go wrong with another one, the colour is a nice light bronze, it’s not too heavy so it is great for every day wear, I would recommend this.
The High Beam (£19.50) is lovely too if you are into the liquid highlight, I tend to tab it and depending on how fleeky I’m feeling, I may even go in and add a little ABH powder highlight on top .. Again depends how fleeky I am that day.
Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep (£18.50) I lurrrrrvvvvvv, no really it is actually surprisingly really good, I wasn’t sure how I’d get on with the little brush but I actually really like it, I use it along side my Mac brow pencil which works well for me!
Boujouir Healthy mix foundation (£9.99) was one of the other things I bought with some chirstmas money, since everyone raves on about it I thought I’d give it a go, I haven’t really decided how I feel about this one, I’m not sure if it’s because I need a slightly lighter shade or I feel like to get a decent cover I have to apply quiet a lot .. I don’t know, I will do a post on different foundations and let you know!
Nars creamy concealer in Custard (£22) is actually damn good, I struggle to get on with concealers, I just feel like I always need something extra, and I now understand why everyone raves about, i like to use it as a bit of a highlight on my face, all hail Nars .. Makeup gods you did me good, big up to the big man up there!
Urban Decay Vice Palette (£38) thanks to my amaze boyfriend who loves to make me happy and buy me nearly every palette I could possibly want from Urban Decay .. thank you honey. I love this palette so much, the colours are gorgeous and so so pigmented, I am definitely a little obsessed, I would recommend anyone who has had their eye on it to just take the plunge and buy it, I just feel like there is a shade for every occasion, and the glittery shadows are just to die for! Buy it!
Fine Glitter Dust 22 Silver (£4.59) by Barry M, if you’re feeling extra sparkly then go and get yourself one of these, it made me feel so glam on a night out, just gave me that extra UMPFF that I know I deserve!! I put my eyeshadow on and put this on top towards the outer part of my eyes, and word of advice, but a little eyelash glue on first and then pack it on after, I can assure you it stays on all night .. even the next day actually, I was walking around looking like a 9 year old child at a disco with nothing on but my glittery eyes LOL! Word of advice, make sure you have enough makeup wipes to take it off!
Right so that is about it for Christmas makeup, I hope you enjoyed this post and you all got what you wanted for Christmas, sorry it is a little late and if you have any questions don’t be afraid to hit me up girl!
