So I have been stuck in the house for nearly 2 weeks recovering from my latest surgery. I was going out of my mind. So this morning when I woke up I decided that it was time to look a little bit more human and make my way into town for a little treat. Credit card in hand I headed for Henry street and did a little bit, not a lot, of damage.
If staff at makeup counters ever want to get me to buy something, they just need to get me on the chair. Once I am on that chair I might as well just hand over my wallet. Case and point the above items. I went with the intention of buy either the corrector or the concealer. How I ended up with both and a setting powder I do not know. The girl at the counter put them all on for me, and did a little bit more of my makeup, and I have to say they really hid the dark circles, as well as lighten under the eyes. How they fair out, I will let you know.
For a long time, I avoided the Essence area in Pennys. I wrote it off as cheap rubbish. Well lets be honest, most the products isn’t great, however I love their eye pencils. They stay on for ages. What more do you want from an eye pencil than long lasting and no smudging? The photographs above do not do these colours justice. Bling Bling is a beautiful gold colour, while I have a Green is a vibrant emerald green colour. I love wearing bright colours on my waterline to make eye makeup pop. Black on the waterline can make the eyes look so small.
This is one of the most beautiful red lipsticks I have ever tried. It is very moist and such a long lasting colour. In fact I couldn’t get it off my lips. I saw So Sue Me do a YouTube tutorial with the lipstick and it just looked gorgeous. I can’t wait to wear this around christmas time . ( Yes I said the C word, get over it. I love Christmas)
Maybelline exaggerate Lip liner in Red Diva
Randomly picked this up to go with the No 7 lipstick. It will give my lips more definition and make the lipstick even more long lasting. Perfect match don’t you think?
I have been trying to get this lipstick for ages, but it has been sold out everywhere. Finally, I spotted it today in Pennys. This is the most beautiful colour. Tanya Burr recently featured it in a tutorial. Great colour for autumn.
