I wear makeup pretty much everyday, but I am no makeup artist! This is why I have always avoided this kind of blog post because of my lack of knowledge. I mean you can’t preach something if your knowledge isn’t there. But recently thanks to my grown up job (Oooo fancy) my income is a lot heathier, so I am slowly trying to upgrade things like makeup and clothes bit by bit just because I can now justify the spend. So I thought I would show you my most recent mini makeup haul. I ordered the majority of these items from Feel Unique.
Up first is this NYX Lid Lingerie eyeshadow palette. This palate has 6 matte colours ranging from a very light pink to lovely muted browns & a burgundy (I’ve added in a very bloggy swatch photo below). I am yet to try these out yet thanks to hay fever eyes, but I cant wait to have a play around. From testing these on my arms I think they will be really pigmented compared to my normal sleek eyeshadows so I am looking forward to trying them out. This one cost £9 which wasn’t too bad in comparison to some of the other eyeshadow palettes around.
Although I normally jump for the cheap makeup for around two years now I have been in love with the Benefit They’re Real mascara. I really love this product! I hate using mascaras with giant brushes as I find more of it goes on my face then my actual lashes. This brush is small but with the smallest little brush over you get so much from it, or if you are after a more flashy look a few little wiggles over your lashes and you get the biggest lashes ever! It’s such a good product yes a little pricey at £21.59, but it is so worth the price (and that comes from a cheap kinda girl).
In this haul I also got some more brushes! After a while they just get a bit rubbish and broken and really really grubby even after a clean so I thought it was time I updated some of them. I didn’t realise how expensive a decent set of brushes were, so so expensive!! So this time I did opt for the slighter cheaper option and got this set of 7 by Sleek which cost £12.99 and came with the cutest travel case which is tres handy!!
I didn’t get this next item from Feel Unique but I have always loved this product and they have just updated their packaging and it looks so good! I was looking at updating this product but it is £1.99 and it’s never let me down, so why change! Can you do wrong with Boots Natural Collection Matte Powder??
Thanks for taking a look let me know what you thought of my first make up post? I am looking forward to trying these out all together. I think it was nice to try and post something a little different!
