London Cosmetics Haul

Hey guys,

Yes I am back 🙂 and I am so excited to show you all the gorgeous products I got from London. I shall admit I fell in love with the city, it is just beautiful and there is a lot to do and places to see. In the few days I’ve been there, I’ve seen some beautiful landscapes, tourist attractions and of course huge shopping places. What I bought mostly,were clothes, but I also go some shoes for the coming winter, and a couple of jewelry items. But of course I could not leave London without getting my hands on some make-up and skin care products.

L1

To be honest I didn’t have a lot of time to shop but I did my best with the time I got. When it comes to cosmetics I bought make-up from 4 places in particular, Primark, Boots, House of Fraser and Selfridges. As for skin care, I only bought products from L’Occitane.

I will start with the cheapest which is Primark, I got these gorgeous 4 lipsticks for just a pound and a huge bronzer compact for about 1.50 pounds if I’m not mistaken. I will give you a review further on 🙂

At boots I got products from various brands that we don’t find in Malta, like berryM, soap and glory, and even benefit. I really I can’t wait to try them and tell you about them on my posts.

When I went to House of Fraser, I was actually looking for some MAC products, but found out that only Selfridges sell MAC at oxford street. As I was heading out I saw an Urban decay display and I was immediately drawn to it and of course, I ended up buying the Naked 2 palette and primer. Can’t wait to review these products, check more product out on their website here.

From Selfridges, I bought a couple of Mac products some of which I own already and some other products which I cannot wait to try.

Last but not least, I bought a gel cleanser,moisturizer  and hand cream from L’Occitane which I cannot wait to try out. I have heard a lot of good reviews about them and I finally has the opportunity to try these products out. I got these beauties on a discount, so do check them out if you are going to Oxford street in London.

I am very happy with my purchases, and can’t wait to review them for you guys :). I don’t think I will post some of the other things I bought like clothes and accessories but I might do some outfit posts in the future. However if you are interested do comment down below. Well, keep posted as some new exciting reviews and posts are coming up

Off We go :D

Hey guys,

As you know this week I will be in London, and I wanted to show you the Make-up I will be taking with me. I am super excited to go to London as I have been dreaming to go for a long time. Being that it’s a holiday I won’t be taking a lot of Make-up with me, all I care is for mostly to have fun and visit this beautiful city. For a holiday, I believe in taking one product for each use, also try to avoid taking expensive make-up with you because it might break with travelling and you don’t want that. So this is my list:

1

Primer- MUA undress your skin primer – this is not my favorite primer but it is a good primer and it comes in a small packing and pump which is the best for travelling.

Foundation – Vicky Dermablend in no 35 – I love this foundation too much, little goes a long way and it gives a lovely finish.

ConcealerMake up store cover all concealer – Even-though I really don’t need it because the foundation is so good I thought of still getting this great concealer with me as it also stay on for a long time.

Eye-shadowThe MUA undressed palette and the white matte colour by Make-up store. The undressed palette is a small compact palette with all the colours you can possibly need to wear for day time or even a night out. I am also taking a large matte white eye-shadow because I used all of the ones in the Palette and you always need a white colour.

Eyeliner- NYX curve liner. I haven’t reviewed this liner yet but I will let you on a little secret, I love it and it is jsut perfect for travelling.

Contouring BronzerThe elf contouring bronzer. It is quite pigmented bronzer so I don’t need to use a lot of product and little goes a long way.

Blusher Mac breezy sheertone blusher. I love this blusher and it’s perfect for this season , it pigmented and buildable.

HighlighterMUA undress your skin highliter. I have to be honest I don’t need a highlighter but I just love this highlighter, it gives such a natural glow to the cheeks.

Mascara- Revlon Grow luscious lashes. I haven’t reviewed this mascara yet but it is surprising very good and have been loving it so far.

Lipstick- I am taking the

That is pretty much it when it comes to make-up products now with regards to application, I couldn’t go without taking my beloved brushes.I have a mixture of foundation and concealer brushes, to apply the eye-shadow and also for contouring and to apply the blusher.  There are also a pair o scissors and tweezers for my brows.

Well that is all guys I do hope you have a great week, I will see you again next Sunday, in the mean time you can keep posted though Instagram and Twitter. 😀

Great News

Hey guys,

So I got some great news, I am finally going to London for a small holiday. I have never been to London so this should be awesome. I have been wanting to go for a long time and thanks to my friend, I am finally going, WHOHOOO. 

I tried to plan the whole thing out so we can manage to do everything, which is basically to see London and do a whole lot of shopping.:D MAC here I come. I need to make a list of the things I should buy so that I don’t end up buying the whole store wherever I go. I have been trying to be very careful with my money so I didn’t purchase much make-up this past 2 months. However I have still a couple of products to review for you guys so keep posted.

 

I would be more than happy to know what are the things I should get while I’m in London from you guys. I want to buy products that aren’t very much available in Malta, so we’ll see how it goes.

Well that is all for now guys, keep posted for more as I have some exciting posts coming up. The opening of the new NYX shop in Malta and some interesting Make-up looks. Thank you all for following,

XOXO
