A Small Fall Make Up Haul

SAMSUNG CSC

Hey Lovelies! I’ve been picking up a few make up items lately, so I thought I’d pick out my favorite and do a bit of a first impression haul mix post. So here we go!

The first thing, which might also be my favorite from this haul, is this beautiful Essence Hello Autumn multi color powder. Just look at it. I’m in love with the design of the pretty little leaves. It’s so adorable. I’ve used it a few times now and I really like it so far. Sometimes I use this instead of blush and just swirl it up and apply on my cheekbones. I love how it functions as a highlighter but still gives my cheeks a very slightly bronze. Of course you could also dust this powder lightly all over your face to get a bit of a bronzed and glowing complexion.

Next up are these two beauties. The one on the left is the Catrice Limited Edition Metallure Metallic Marbled Eyeshadow in Metalight. Yep, that’s an obnoxiously long name but the eyeshadow itself is gorgeous. Because it’s a marbled eyeshadow it looks a bit different evey time I use it but in general it’s like a shimmery champaign shade I would say.

The one on the right is the Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in 030 We Are The Champaignes. I’m not entirely sure why this is called liquid because it’s not but it’s definitely a metallic shade. I’d say it’s more of a golden than a champaign color but it’s beautiful anyway.

Last but not least I got this Maxfactor Lip Infinity in Dazzling Cocoa. I don’t really have any brown lipsticks and I like the concept of this. First you apply a darker lip color, which looks like a gloss but basically is a liquid lipstick. After it dries of you put the gloss on top. It’s incredibly long lasting and I love the colors for fall.

So what have you guys been buying?

A Lip Combo I’ve been Loving

It’s Monday! Most people I know dread Mondays including me. It’s just hard to go back to the serious life after a fun and relaxing weekend. Even though I’m still at home for another week to recover from my hospital incident I definitely feel along with those who have to go back to work, uni or school.

Since it’s Monday I thought I’d share one of my tips with you to be motivated and to get through Monday. One thing that always helps me is to doll myself up a little and here’s a pretty lip combo I’ve been loving lately, that is just perfect for every day.

These are the two products I’ve loved mixing lately. First I apply one of my favorite nude lipsticks: the Maybelline Color Sensational 725 in Tantalizing Taupe. If you ever get one nude lipstick from the drugstore this is the one I would recommend. The shade is just perfect, it’s so creamy and moisturizing, which makes it a dream to apply and it lasts a fair share of time.

Next I apply a bit of my Mac Dreamy lipgloss. I’m usually not too much into lip glosses but this one is an absolute dream. It’s a gorgeous super light pink gloss, that gives your lips a pretty shimmer without being too pink. Plus it’s not sticky and let’s be real sticky glosses are the worst. I hate when my hair gets caught up in those. Luckily this gloss is super moisturising as well and not sticky at all.

What I like about this combo is that the lipstick adds volume to my lips while the gloss gives them a natural shimmer. It’s the perfect combo for every day whether for work, school or uni.

Spring/Summer Favorites: Mac Lipglass Pink Lemonade

IMG_3216 IMG_3218

It’s another Tuesday and time for another one of my spring & summer favourites. Yay! For today I picked my favorite spring/ summer lip gloss. In general I’m more of a lipstick person but I do own quite the amount of glosses as well. Most of them I don’t use all that much but this one gets used a lot, which you can probably tell by the fact that the writing on it is almost completely gone.

What I like about this gloss that it’s easy to apply evenly and it’s not too sticky. Some lip glosses are so sticky and I absolutely hate sticky glosses. It lasts quite long but my favorite part is the color.

For summer I love bright pink colors but I eventually get a little bored of them, which is why I like to switch them up with a few coral shades every now and then. The Mac lip glass pink lemonade is rather bright coral shade with a hint of some orange.

And here’s how it looks on the lips.

In my opinion Pink Lemonade is a perfect shade for summer because it’s so fun and a nice change for my usual pink shades.

What’s your favorite summer lipgloss?
