There were some items on my list I absolutely wanted to buy, but aren’t available here in Austria and some I shopped by accident. Let’s go into details with my (big) haul.
|Revlon Lip Butter in “Provocative”|
|Revlon Lip Butter in “Cotton Candy”|
Revlon is one of those brands which aren’t disposable in my country and since I’ve heard good things about their Lip Butter, I went for two of them. One in “Cotton Candy” and the other one in “Provocative”. The first one leaves your lips with a touch of pink and the second gives you a slightly lavender shimmer. Both nourished my lips for four hours or even more. Great stuff!
|Wenko Cosmetic Organiser Femme|
For me it is ok if I spend 30 bucks or more for a good foundation but for a cosmetic organiser? No way. So I was very lucky when I found one on sale in the home depot. My lip products are now all stored there (as you can see in the picture below).
|Rimmel London Lipstick in “#107”|
Last year I bought this lip stick in Rome and I used the heck out of it because it is the perfect deep red in my opinion. It is a matte one and lasts for hours without fading away.
|Maybelline FIT me Concealer in “#20 Sand”|
Same here as with the cosmetic organiser: More than 15 bucks for a concealer? No, thanks. Call it Chanel, YSL, MAC or something else, I won’t buy it, ‘cause I am already satisfied with one from the drugstore. This one from Maybelline covers great - not only red spots but even my blemishes when I had acne – without looking cakey. Normally I use the shade #15, but this time I wanted to try a darker tone, #20.
|Giorgio Armani Mascara “Eyes to kill”|
Even if I own enough mascaras at the moment I wanted to purchase this one because Tiffany is a big fan of it and she seems to be as picky as I am with mascaras, so that’s why I wanted to give it a try.
|MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in “Shock Value”|
If you can remember this post where I showed you my new lipstick from MAC in “Candy Yum-Yum” … I thought that I own a lip liner similar to this color but unfortunately I did not, so I purchased for this longwearing one.
|Smashbox CC Cream in “#05 Light/Medium”|
I am not a huge fan of BB and CC creams, but the ones from Smashbox are really great, especially the CC. Back in the days when I suffered from Acne (due to lactose intolerance) it gave me good coverage, like normally only a foundation does.
In winter I sometimes mix it with my foundation, in summer I just wear it on its own. If you have pale skin the shade “fair” or “light” will suit you.
|MAC Prep + Prime Lip|
|Too Faced Mascara “Better than Sex”|
|NARS Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner “Via Veneto”|
The package insert says that is smudge-proof, long-wearing and has a built-in sharpener, so let’s just try it out.
|Lancôme “Teint Miracle” in “#03 Beige Diaphane”|
