RECENT BEAUTY PURCHASES #3

There is nothing better to make yourself feel good or take a really low day and make it seem much better than going makeup shopping. I love it and it has helped me with my gloomy days and being a freelance makeup artist requires me to keep buying new makeup, at least that's how I justify it to myself. I did another beauty haul awhile back, you can have a look HERE if you are curious like me.

BEAUTY HAUL #3

Beauty Haul 3

NYX Tinted Moisturizer

In Hong Kong it is absolutely difficult to find foundations that would suit my skin tone, they tend to favour the lighter skin tones so it can be quite frustration. However when I do find one I will not think twice before I buy and this is exactly what happened when I was shown the NYX Tinted Moisturizer in the shade Almond by the sales person at the counter. It is a perfect match to my skin tone. The tinted moisturizer is light weight and very smooth on the skin. I will do a full review soon. I did have this in my previous haul as well and you can see that I have it again because I love it so much that I am keeping a few extras with me.

Caramex Cherry Lip Balm 

This Cherry flavoured lip balm smells amazing and is absolutely moisturizing. I bought this to use on my clients because once you apply it after a few minutes the lips are perfectly moisturized and lipstick and lip gloss apply with just ease. I use it myself but I am a lip balm junkie that I have so many different ones that I use. I just keep adding and adding even more.

NYX Natural Palette

I have been on the look out for a matte neutral eye shadow palette and since I love NYX products, thought I will get their Natural Palette. I like using matte shades as bases and in the crease. This is a handy palette to have in my MUA kit as well. The eye shadows are super soft and well pigmented for matte shades. There is slight fall off that you need to be aware of.

NYX Smokey Palette

This Smokey Palette is a mix of matte and shimmer eye shadows. I think that's the perfect combination when it comes to creating the perfect smokey eye. This again is a handy palette to have with me when I go on a makeup job because I like to mix and match colours to create the perfect eye makeup. The eye shadows are super soft and well pigmented. There is slight fall off that you need to be aware of.

Max Factor Crème Puff Blush

There have been so many amazing reviews that I was waiting till this landed in Hong Kong and the minute it did, I got my hands on one them. I bought the shade Alluring Rose. A peach and brown blush with a warm undertone. It does have a slight shimmer to it but nothing too over the top. On me it works best as a highlight because even though it has warm tones it is a bit light on me. As a highlight its perfect. The blush is super soft and has a very creamy feel to it.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush

I have with me the blush in Berry Shimmer. It is such a lovely terracotta colour with gold shimmer. Its very pigmented so you need to use a light hand. The blush looks matte and has a very soft velvety feel but when you apply it there is a slight shimmer that shines through because of the gold. However its lovely and I love this shade. I am so going to get a few more shades.

MAC Customisable Palette

My very first customisable eye shadow palette from MAC. I got the eye shadows Sable, All That Glitters, Star Violet and Casino. All eye shadows are shimmer based eye shadows and I think it made the perfect mix of shadows. I cant wait to take it on my upcoming holiday with me as well. MAC eye shadows are amazing, well pigmented and easy to blend. I will definitely be adding more eye shadows and I want to get the bigger palette as well.

Maybelline Nudes Palette

So much of hype around these palettes that I had to get the Nudes Palette too. This palette is the perfect start if you like neutral eye shadows. They are very pigmented but does have a bit of fall off. You can create such amazing smokey eyes. The eye shadows are super soft and creamy and well pigmented. I now want to get my hands on the blushes nude palette as well.

So that's my little beauty haul for now,  I am sure there will be more to come. I hope there is at least one thing that you have been wanting to get and hope my little reviews helped. What have you been shopping lately? Let me know in the comment box below.
