Newest Beauty Additions
oh, how I’ve missed typing up a beauty post. it feels like ages and a day. I actually couldn’t wait to get my camera out and style up some new makeup. makeup that I have been buying recently and that now have a home at my place. not that I need any more makeup but I just love adding new things to my collection and trying new items for myself. so today, I’m gonna show you what I bought recently and you might want to add some of those products to your collection too.
in with the new
as you probably know, I was on holiday and even though I didn’t really plan on doing loads of beauty shopping I found a little shop in Leiden that stored la girl makeup. a brand that I always wanted to try but never got to since its only available for me via beautybay. I just had to pick up some of their products and because my sister also wanted to get her hands on their products too, we even paid the store a second visit. I obviously got the la girl pro conceal. two of them in two very different shades. the first one is in porcelain which is their lightest shade. its a very peach toned shade and I would actually prefer it even lighter. the coverage, however, is amazing and since it has peach undertones it really covers my under eye circles. I also got the shade medium bisque to use as a contour shade. it blends lovely and works just the way I wanted it to.
lately, i had some problems with my concealer creasing and setting into fine lines under my eyes. not exactly the look I’m going for so I wanted to get a banana powder to see if it helped. I went for the la girl pro powder in banana yellow and oh my, it’s so good. it really sets and brightens my under eye area and there has been no weird creasing anymore so I’m happy.
a new launch I was so excited about was the l’oréal paradise mascara. everyone hyped it up and I couldn’t wait for it to be in store here. I was a bit sad to find out that it’s not the pink packaging that they do in the us that it comes in here. its rose gold and not really my favourite but the mascara itself is beautiful. it’s a very natural brush and it creates so much volume and length. if you need a new mascara, get this one.
when I was browsing my local drugstore i saw a new Essie limited edition and I basically own all Essie shades and love them so I treated myself to two new ones. first off is an army green shade and I was on the hunt for a nice khaki green. it’s called exposed and its a beauty. I also went to a darker mauve nude shade because both looked to autumnal and I just want it to be autumn right now. it’s called clothing optional.
so here we are. the newest beauty additions to my collection. have you tried any of the products i mentioned? let me know.
