This time next week, I will be sipping drinks at the side of the pool in sunny Florida. I actually can’t wait. Sunshine and shopping for nearly 3 weeks. What better way is there to spend a holiday?
Last January I went to Florida for a few weeks and did a little damage in the makeup department. While I bought a lot of really good stuff, I found my shopping was a little hap hazard. I bought so much stuff I needed 3 separate haul posts. This time I am going in with a list and while I might stray from the list, I am not going to go too far off. I would love to hear of must have items you guys think I need, so leave a comment down below.
1.Lorac pro palette
When I was in the States in January, I literally searched high and low for this palette, but they were sold out everywhere. I have heard so many good things about this palette and how easy the shadows are to work with and the wide range of looks you can create with it, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it, but here is the thing, Lorac have only gone and thrown a spanner in the works and realised a Lorac pro 2!! Seriously how am I going to pick? I can’t get both of them!!
2. Tarte Be Mattenifican Amazonian Eye and Cheek palette
I love matte eyeshadows. I actually can’t get enough of them and it is hard to find nice mattes, never mind a palette full of them. My friend Emma has this and says she absolutely loves it. Her word is as good as gospal for me when it comes to makeup, so this bad boy will end up in my suitcase.
3. Becca Shimmering Skin perfector
I have a feeling that this is going to be one product that I really will have a hard time getting my hands on . Jaclyn Hill, a super YouTuber, has not stopped going on about this highlighter for months. Every time I log onto Sephora it seems to be sold out, which is not surprising when you read the reviews online. If it is the last thing I do, I will track this down and bring it home with me.
4. Sephora Collection Pro Flawless Airbrush number 56
This foundation brush is one of those things that seems to have been a hidden gem, but all of a sudden everyone wants it. I first heard of this brush from watching Makeup with Tiffany D, I love her YouTube videos, but now everyone seems to be talking about it. This foundation brush is said to buff both powder and liquid foundation into the skin beautifully. You should have a read off the reviews here, it seems that this brush can do no wrong.
5. Bite lipstick
The range of colours in the Bite beauty line is to die for. They are said to be seriously pigmented, long lasting and moist. These are a favourite of many YouTubers .
6. It Cosmetics CC cream
This is another tip off from Makeup by Tiffany D. Her skin always looks flawless in videos and she puts it down to this CC cream from It Cosmetics. I don’t know a whole heap about CC creams, that phenomena seems to have slipped me by, but i know good skin when I see it and if this can give me good coverage and help my skin out, I’m sold.
7. Crest Whitening strips
These are hands down the best whitening strips out there. I have used these a number of times and they literally leave your teeth gleaming. You can’t get them in Europe, something to do with the percentage of whitener they use, so I always stock up when I go Stateside.
8. Hourglass ambient lighting blusher
I already have one of these and it actually never leaves my cheeks. I have to push myself to use other blushers. These blushers are so beautiful on the cheeks. They really give the most beautiful, glow from within. They cost €32.50 here, but if I get them in the States they cost around €26. So it makes financial sense to buy one over there.
9. Too Faced Melted liquified long wear lipstick
These lip products are another example of how YouTuber hook me in wight he products they are using. I have heard so many good things about these and the colour range is unreal. There is a purple in the range called violet orchid that I don’t think I will be able to function without. Need these in my life.
10. OCC Lip tar
One thing I always look out for when I go to Sephora is their sets. They always have sets with different luxury sample size products in them. This OCC lip tar set is unreal. While they are smaller in size, a tiny bit of these go a very long way. The set gives a great range of colours and even comes with a lip brush. Hopefully they aren’t already sold out.
11. Benefit They’re real eyeliner
The hype surrounding this is unreal. I am not normally a fan of Benefit, but they reviews of this are unreal. I can’t justify the price of it over here, but considering I can get it in the States for €18, I may just give this a go.
