So I may have splurged a little bit but I mean discounted (and some not discounted) makeup is the best kind right? Anyway we have to look on the upside this little haul is going to help me going with reviews for a good few weeks. Today I just thought I would show you what I picked up from duty free on my way out to Iceland and also a couple of bits I picked up as well as do some teeny teaser reviews as you can expect to see most of this in the next month or so. So without further ado lets get into it.
Liz Earle Cleanse and polish starter kit -
Starting off with the only skincare item I picked up, this is something I tried a sample of loved and just never got round to picking it up. I really love it, it does a fabulous job of removing every last bit of makeup whilst not leaving the skin feel stripped.
Bare Minerals Complexion rescue -
It's not very often that I will repurchase a base but I really love this stuff. It is a stunning very lightweight base which is just perfect for chucking on everyday. It is incredibly hydrating so is the perfect one for anyone with dry skin.
NYX HD concealer -
Another repurchase, this is one of my favourite cheep and cheerful concealers. I really like this as it is a nice high coverage and has a more satin finish than most of the other concealers that I reach for regularly meaning it's the one I go for when I want to go for that really high coverage look. Although it does also look really nice on an everyday basis.
Urban Decay Afterglow highlighter in Fireball -
Oh my gosh this shade is absolutely stunning, it's a duochrome pink to peach and is just going to be so perfect for summer it is ridiculous. I was a little concerned that it would be too dark however I love the other shade which is Sin so I just decided to bite the bullet and pick it up and I'm so glad I did.
Nars Unfiltered 1 Blush palette -
This was my big purchase from feel unique and I am absolutely obsessed with it. I wanted some blush shades that were a little different in my collection and this palette seemed to be perfect for the job. I am currently especially loving the shade Exhibit A which is the red shade.
Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation -
Moving on to things I picked up in the airport, I had to give this foundation a go as I've heard so many good things about it. It is a really beautiful quite full coverage foundation without being heavy or cakey. I picked up shade 2 which is a little dark for me however as long as I bronze down the neck I can get it to work for me.
Mac Pro longwear concealer -
So many people love this stuff and I thought it was about time I gave it a go. First off I hate the bottle it's stupid and really not travel friendly but other than that I really love this product. It has some insane coverage however doesn't feel thick and cakey on the skin. It sits beautifully even underneath the skies and in general is a good all rounder.
Mac Blush in Harmony -
I've been on the look out for a new contour product for so long now and I've heard good stuff about this one for pale skin so I thought I might as well give it a go. It is a really natural shade as it has a little more warmth than your average contour powder meaning it can double as a bronzer contour type product.
Mac Lipsticks in Twig, Brave, Matte royal, Viva glam V and Modesty -
So I went a little crazy with the Mac lipsticks but at that amount of money off you have to grab it while you can. I think that I am going to do a separate post on these as going into depth will make this post even longer so keep your eye out for that.
Bobbi Brown Gel liners in Black ink and Sepia ink -
I have needed a new gel liner forever but because it's not something I wear all the time I just never really got round to it. However when I saw this on the plane I decided to grab it as I've heard some really good things about these and so far I really like them. They're very easy to use a last really well.
Shiseido Cream eyeshadow -
This was something I picked up in Iceland when I was trying to spend my krona in the airport and I'm actually really glad I did as I feel it isn't something I would have tried otherwise. It's a really pretty pink shade which I think will be absolutely beautiful for as we transition into spring.
