New Makeup Haul; NARS, Giorgio Armani, Stila Cosmetics…
Heyy girlies! I feel like I’ve gone on a bit of a makeup-buying craze recently, and so thought I’d write up a quick little haul post of some of my recent purchases for you all.
This first product isn’t really a ‘new’ purchase of mine, rather it’s a re-purchase of the Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe Herbs And Rosewater – I use this product as a part of my skincare routine and to also set my makeup in place.
The next two items are from NARS, one of which is another repurchase and the next is a raved about product that had been on my wishlist for a while:
I absolutely love the shade Dolce Vita, I have it in my freelance kit – it’s like the perfect plum shade for South Asian girls with deep skin tone. I also purchased the infamous Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard; so far I love the coverage and blend-ability of it but it does crease under my eyes so I prefer using it all over my face.
This was a gift from my friend Ella and she did such a good job in picking this shade for me! This shade is “Nude Ombre” although I do feel like it comes off slightly peachy on my lips. 🤔
This next purchase definitely was a bit of a guilty spurge – Jaclyn Hill from YouTube always raved on about this foundation and it was another item that was always on my wishlist for the longest time.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
I purchased this in the shade 6
Now in terms of coverage I’d say this is a light to medium coverage, I love wearing this on because it gives the most flawless skin-like finish ever. Normally I’m cautious of wearing foundations that claim to be ‘luminous’ because of my super oily skin, but this foundation surprisingly manages to stay put on my skin for more than 5 and a half hours without me needing to blot! It has a SPF 30 so there is flashback if anyone considers wearing this where there’ll be flash photography.
Below is a swatch of the foundation:
You can definitely see how lightweight it is and the skin-like appearance it gives.
I also wanted to try out one of the Stila Cosmetics Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow’s as I intended to use it on my big sister for her wedding day. I purchased the shade ‘Bronzed Bell’
It honestly applies and swatches soooo beautifully in real life 😍 It’s super long lasting and so versatile to use, I’d highly recommend this product to anyone that loves a bit of glits and glam!
I had stumbled across the Makeup Forever Pro Sculpting Duo in Tkmaxx in number 1 Pink Beige and just had to buy it.
Sadly Tkmaxx aren’t stocking this in stores or online at the moment, but if I ever do come across it again, I’ll be sure to mention it on my Snapchat or Instagram accounts.
And lastly, I purchased the infamous Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that was all over Instagram.
I bought this from Tkmaxx but I can’t seem to remember what the price was for it unfortunately 😣 I have tried this mask a couple of times and once I managed to get past the whole Instagram-Foam-Face gimmick, it actually is quite a nice mask to use! It tingles as it bubbles on my face but after I’ve washed it all off, I do feel like my skin feels more smoother and lighter.
And that’s all I’ve got so far! I’ve ordered some new Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow’s, and once they arrive I intend to do a whole post on them with swatches so keep your eyes out for that! 😘
