Lime Crime Lipstick!
Ok I had to put this at the top of the list as I was so giddy when I opened it; one because my sister Kelly is a sweetheart for remembering that I had been looking at the LimeCrime range for a little while now and two, it's purple and has a unicorn on it...how can that not make you smile?! :p Kelly chose this opaque lipstick in the colour Geradium and I love it. It's a beautiful pinky colour that's not too bright but still stands out and looks so pretty! This brand is cruelty free and vegan and I just think that it is really cool too!
Urban Decay Foundation & The Sigma F80!
I had bought the Sigma F80 brush a few months back after watching tons of Jaclyn Hill videos. As I was in need of a new foundation brush, I thought I would give this one a try. It looked so clean and neat when it arrived that I didn't want to use it, I know I know but that's just me I like to keep things new for the longest time. But after purchasing some new foundation, with my birthday Sephora gift card, I thought it was about time to take it out of it's wrapper! Well, as Jaclyn Hill would put it, it is "Amazeballs" I love it! The brush is just awesome for applying foundation smoothly and evenly and it makes such a huge difference to the finished look. I can definitely understand the hype around Sigma and would most definitely recommend this brush to everyone! In addition, my new Urban Decay Naked foundation is just as wonderful. This was recommended to me by my brother in law's sister, who by the way always looks flawless, and I have to say it is one of my favourite foundation's that I have ever used. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and it does indeed look naked and no way near cakey. A big thumbs up for Urban Decay Naked! I have mine in shade 4.5.
Stila Kitten Kit!
I can't say too much about this kit at the moment as I have yet to try out the eye shadow and duo highlighter. Kelly bought it for me from Nordstrom Rack as it was again another Jaclyn Hill favourite that I had been going on about. But I wasn't allowed it until my birthday. The colour is beautiful and I can say that the lip-gloss is gorgeous as that I have been wearing since I opened the tin. It's so pretty and shimmery and is very close to being the perfect colour for me! When i'm not in the mood for a bright pink or coral I opt for something this kind of shade, something that is more neutral and not as bold but still makes you sparkle! :)
I had heard so much about this blush from pretty much everyone and with my Illamasqua "Sophie" blush coming to an end, I thought it made sense to give this one a try! This is Nars in shade "Orgasm" It is such a pretty shade. For me, I am loving the fact that it's not too pink, I tend to go for bright pink which can sometimes make my cheeks seem a little too rosy, so this one is just simple, subtle and beautiful. I love that it has this shimmer and glisten to it, so cute! :)
Lush & Mac Pro Longwear!
With a little bit of birthday money I had leftover, I treated myself a tad bit this week. I mentioned in my first makeup blog that I had bought the bare minerals concealer and I wasn't that keen on it, with having nearly finished it though, I thought I would go back to what I had been using for the past 2 years while wrestling. That being the Mac Pro-Longwear concealer. I know Jaclyn Hill raves about this one too, so if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Mine is in shade NC 20. Lately I have been getting rather into the idea of masks and exfoliating and cleansing, basically anything to do with really looking after my skin. So my next purchase was the Mask of Magnaminty. I have been walking past Lush shops for years but have never ventured in due to the fact that in all honesty the smell can often be too overpowering. However, I like the little section in Macy's as it is easier to handle and after again hearing so much about this product I really wanted to try it, so this lead to my first Lush purchase. The lady in the store said it is a great detoxing mask and it gives you an incredibly deep clean. I'm looking forward to relaxing and trying it out! :)
