Mid-Week Purchases

4 February 2014

WOAH firstly, thank you so much for 80 followers on Bloglovin', I know to some that's not hat many, but I'm now 20 away from 100 which to be honest, I didn't think I would achieve for years! I know some people get followers really quickly, and its only be like one month and they already have 300 followers or something, and I've had mine for quite a while (since summer) and I've only just achieved 80, but I was stuck on 78 for so long and I've been waiting for Sunday, since I classify Sunday as my blogging day in between my work! So yeah, thank you so much for 80 followers, I know it's not huge but I'm feeling quite proud :)

But anyway, on with the post! I'm not too happy with my piercings one, I rushed it so I'll probably delete it...just incase you were wondering, which you weren't but oh well!

On Thursday I went shopping and finally got the foundation I needed and a few other extra bits and bobs which I will show you and I'll do reviews later on.

Everybody needs just a black eye pencil, so I decided just to get a cheap £1 one from MUA. Obviously you can tell it's not going to the best quality, but I'm a bit annoyed because when I tested it on my hand it went from super sharp, to completely blunt by the end of the line! Also, I thought I was getting a black eyeliner, buut it turned out to be 'intense glitter'. When I tested it on my hand when I got home I thought it was just some glitter on my hand from the eye shadows I was testing out earlier, but nope, it was the eyeliner! However, it doesn't look that bad and it smudges easily and I think it would look quite nice on your top lid smudged a litter, or smudged completely as eyeliner. But I do still need to get a plain black eye pencil, I might get one of the kohl ones from Topshop because I have a voucher and my friend has one and it looks amazing!
MUA Intense Glitter £1
As well as the pencil I also got a gel eyeliner from Maybelline (I can't remember the name and I pretty much destroyed the packaging whilst trying to open it) in intense black. I love gel eyeliners as you get better at eyeliner because I personally find that they do really good cat eyes, however as my first ever eyeliner I chose gel, which I would NOT recommend as it is hard to use, but now that I've been wearing it for a while, I thought it would be time for a repurchase. I was deciding between the Maybelline and Collection one, I knew the Maybelline one was good since I had read reviews about it, but the Collection one was £2 cheaper, but they had a buy one get on free offer on, and since I already had one thing from Maybelline it seemed like the best thing since how can resist a deal and saving some money!

The other Maybelline product I got was their BB cream 'Dream Fresh', I got this one rather than the other one mainly because it suited my skin tone more. They don't have a wide variety of colours, mainly light, medium and dark, but it doesn't need to be an exact match. I got it to help make my skin an even tone because it's all red and splodgey and this helps to make it all even and natural and it moisturises at the same time! I like to use it when my skin isn't too bad because at times like that I don't need something as heavy as foundation, but I need something to help sort out the redness of my skin, which this does. I shall do a review on it :)

The final thing I brought was Bourjouis Healthy Mix Foundation, I mentioned in an earlier post that I needed a darker shade and now I finally do. Having my actual shade just makes me look so much better and now my face doesn't look too pale for the rest of my body. I love this foundation because its nice and light, but again, I shall do a review for you guys later.

Thanks for reading and following guys! Let me know if you have any of these products, or tell me any products that you need to get because I'm always up for trying new products!;) No I'm not.. I get really nervous buying new makeup in case it's bad and by the time I realise that it would be too late to get my money back, but anyway yeah! Let me know some of your makeup needs!:)xo
