Hii my beauties 💋 !!
Most of you were waiting for this post, and it’s finally here!
Little back story before I start:
I’m gonna be very honest and say, lately I have been very bored with makeup, to the point that even new makeup launches feel boring, nothing interesting and nothing eye catching so my plan for this trip was to JUST restock on few of my favourites and buy that AMAZINGG eyeshadow palette by BPerfect, nothing more than that.
Well, arhm, that plan failed, cause I am a makeup junkie deep down and I ended up buying quite a few (unplanned) bits and now let’s get into that (in no particular order)!
Let’s start with what started my makeup-buying journey:
BPerfect Cosmetics: BPerfect Carnival XL Pro Palette in Collaboration with Stacey Marie – my first impression of this palette was WOAH, THIS IS HUGEE! And when I started looking at the colours and layout I just fell in love with it, just breathtaking!
UK doesn’t have a Sephora, but got to go into one in Paris and from there I got:
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Makeup Kit (Park Avenue Princess Bronzer, Amazonian Clay 12h Blush in Harmony and Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara);
- Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Instant Retouch Setting Powder in Butter (mini);
- NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (a restock);
- Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask;
- Huda Beauty Matte Lipstick in Promotion Day;
- Urban Decay Naked Skin, One & Done, Blur on the Run, Touch Up and Finishing Balm.
If you didn’t know by now, I absolutely love minis, because I test makeup so much makeup, minis are perfect for that. I’m yet to try these products, except the NARS concealer, which is a restock cause I absolutely LOVE IT!
Another store I hit in Paris was NYX Cosmetics and from there I got the infamous NYX Cant stop, Wont Stop Full Coverage Foundation in Classic Tan and NYX Lingerie Push-Up, Long Lasting Lipstick in Exotic (which I have tried and loved).
Another store from which I bought few restocks is MAC, and from there I bought my absolute favs and cannot live products, which are MAC Prep+Prime Fix+ and MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, and I got a sample (that I have been dying to try out, not gonna lie), which is MAC Strobe Cream.
Well I bought these products from a random drugstore, that I even forgot its name, but I got Models Own Galactica Eyeliner in Golden and Silver (hopefully these are dupes for Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal liners? Fingers crossed!).
I could not, not shop in this (online) store! Cult Beauty is a must, and when I shopped, I got a coupon and got a huge discount (SCORE!), so from there I bought Morphe x Jaclyn Hill The Eye Master Collection and Sigma Beauty Tapered Blending Brush (E40) cause I needed new eye brushes.
Too Faced Born This Way Setting Powder (Travel Size) cause this powder is soo hyped up, need to test it out and so far I am absolutely loving it, it goes on smoothly and seamlessly, LOVE IT!
Huda Beauty Neon Orange Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette cause from those 3 palettes, this is the one I absolutely loved and could see myself wearing!
Natasha Denona Mini Bronze and Glow Palette, okai this one I almost hate, the highlighter gives a natural glow which is ok, but the bronzer OMG! it is soooo red on me, I hate that, I’ve used it a few times, but since then I just stopped cause it’s just horrible, and both of these have fallout, just horrible! I am so glad that I got it in the mini size to try it out, because the normal size one is soo expensive! Because of experiences like these, sometimes I choose to try out products in the mini size before I buy the full size.
I restocked some of my favourites, and bought them from Boots: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, Eylure Lashes in Texture no 117 (pack of 3 pairs), Eylure Lashes Enchanted in Oops-a-Daisy, Duo Quick-Set Striplash Adhesive in White/Clear and Duo Striplash Adhesive in White/Clear (nothing new and exciting over here).
One of my last stops in the UK was Birmingham, I was randomly window shopping and I just got up the stairs and BAMM a Morphe store!! I was so surprised to see one that I immediately got excited and posted on my Instagram stories, I mean, I always wanted to see Morphe products personally and just seeing the store made me very happy (ask my cousin how excited and happy I was, she must have thought that I went crazy).
So, without further ado what I bought was the infamous Morphe Highlight and Contour Beauty Sponge, I mean of course! And for my pleasant surprise I also got to see the Morphe x Jeffree Star collection from which I just bought Morphe x Jeffree Star Set and Refresh Mist in Star-Berry because I just had bought the BPerfect palette, it made no sense to get another big colourful one. And finally his amazing lippies (most of them were sold out) but I managed to get Jeffree Star Lip Ammunition in Calabasas.
And that is everything (beauty related) I bought on this trip to Europe.
Did you enjoy my haul? Have you tried any of these?
