America makeup haul






Again a belated post of all the makeup I got when I went to America but if I'm honest it has taken me awhile to test them all out. Firstly EOS lip balm in Summer fruits, I now understand the hype! Before I went to the states I didn't even know what these things were. I just thought 'what are those weird egg things that everyone has?' I found this pretty cheap in a drug store that became our favourite shop, it had everything in there! The balm smells delicious and is so easy to use and instantly hydrates your lips and turns them completely baby soft. Next up is the MAC mineralize skinfinish a beauty of a product that I had my eye on for months but I couldn't justify the price tag. I went into the MAC shop in Times Square and asked to test the pinkier shade but this was way too light for me, so the lady recommended this one pictured. Which is a gorgeous shimmery bronzer and highlight in one which works perfectly together or seperately, I think it gives your going out makeup a bit extra glamour. I found the third item from the same drug store and I had never seen it before it was the Maybellene colour tattoo pure pigment in Buff n Tuff. I am really interested in pigments at the moment but I did have a bit of trouble using this as it was very messy and it wasn't as metallic as I had hoped for but I will give it another go and see if I warm to it. My favorite purchase had to be my matte super red MAC lipstick in Relentless Red. It lasts all day without fading even when I eat and drink and although it is matte it doesn't dry my lips out. It gives a gorgeous pop of colour to any makeup look. My final purchase was the NARS Laguna and orgasum blush and bronzer duo again I have seen so many people say good things about this product, that I thought I would see for myself. When I first used this I was slightly worried it would be too bright for me but with the right foundation it is lovely and gives your cheeks a girly flush of colour.  

I would love to know what you think of these items if you have them? ox
