buying makeup is my addiction.
Lately I have been trying to be good with my money. It is important to make smart purchases and that is what I intended to do. I went to the drugstore to buy an essential - toothpaste. However, I ended up buying a bunch of makeup as well. Such is my life! Here is what I bought:
1) Playboy Body Mist in: Play It Lovely... and Play It Sexy
These were a last minute purchase. I couldn't decide on which one I liked better, so I just bought them both. Oops? They were really inexpensive though - seven dollars each! - so that is how I justify it. I really am loving both of these scents at the moment.
Play It Lovely... is a really pretty fresh, floral scent with just a hint of musk. It is the perfect scent for day time. It isn't too overwhelming but still smells very pretty and girly!
Play It Sexy.... definitely lives up to its name! This body mist is really floral and very sexy! It is very feminine and perfect to wear on a night out!
2) Hard Candy Baked Blush in Honeymoon
Out of everything I bought, I think this has to be my favourite. This blush a warm peachy-pink colour and is fairly natural looking. It is perfect for day time. What I really love about it, is that it adds a really beautiful luminosity to the skin. It completely transforms a look. Very pearly and totally gorgeous!
3) Wet n' Wild Lipstick 502A
Every so often, I end up picking up lipsticks from Wet n' Wild. Not because they are great quality, but because it's a good way of trying out different colours without investing a ton of money in it. This lipstick was super cheap, but pretty nice! It is a deep pink colour with a hint of purple. It has a nice shimmer to it as well, which I really like!
4) Hard Candy Creme Eyeshadow and Glitter Eyeliner in Pixie
I think I was in a really glittery mood when I went shopping! The creme eyeshadow colour is really nice and super sparkly. Definitely a plus. The only downside is that it's quite dry and crumbly, so it makes the product a lot harder to work with. The glitter eyeliner is again, super super glittery and looks great on, but the pencil is pretty dry. They look good, but are a bit harder to work with.
5) L'Oreal Paris Color Infalliable Eyeshadow in Forever Pink
Oh. My. Goodness. I am madly in love with this eyeshadow. It is really pigmented and shimmery. It looks just beautiful on with or without a primer. They had a bunch of colours and I found it really hard to decide which to buy, but I ended up choosing a pinkish gold colour. It is very girly and glam! Very nice product to work with!
L'Oreal Paris 6 Hour Infallible Lip Liner in Red Wine/ L'Oreal Paris Lipstick in 714 Blazing Sangria
These two products came together. I think that is why I decided last minute to pick it up. I am a sucker for red lipsticks, and needed a good red lip liner. he liner is really nice and creamy. The colour is gorgeous and I love that it doesn't need to be sharpened! Really nice! The lipstick is very moisturizing, which is always a plus! The colour is a nice deep red. It is very wearable and totally glams up a look!
So there you have it, my latest makeup haul! What have you bought lately?
