At the end of April, I told myself that May would be the month I really save money. It was going really well…for about a week. And then my inner shopaholic took over, and now my bank account isn’t too happy with me.
What can I say? Shopping for makeup is one of the best feelings in the world, and I’m sure many of you fellow beauty addicts there can relate! My best friend Claudia – who also happens to be a blogger and a beauty addict – and I recently did some retail damage.
Urban Decay “Midnight Cowboy Rides Again” shadow: I’ve had my eye on this shadow for about 2 years now, and finally decided to get it! It’s light pink-toned champagne with silver shimmer and sparkle.
New MAC Extra Dimension eyeshadows: We were both so impressed with these! They’re super pigmented and smooth and have such a gorgeous range of colours! I picked up the shades “Evening Grey” and “Smokey Mauve.”
Stila “Kitten”: So not only did I get the Stila “Smitten With Kitten” set (online sephora exclusive) which came with the Kitten lip gloss, a small size of the Kitten shadow, and a Kitten Convertible cream color. I also picked up a full size of the Kitten eyeshadow (because you really never can have enough Kitten in your life). Kitten is my absolute favourite shade in the entire universe. It is the perfect shimmery champagne!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks: These gorgeous liquid lipsticks are from the new summer collection. I picked 3 shades: (left to right)”Como,” “Rosa,” and “Venezia”.
Stila “Kitten” Gloss: this gorgeous gloss came in the Smitten With Kitten set (which I highly recommend, it’s such a good deal!)
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in ‘Naked’: Claudia and I both fell in love with this shade. It is a gorgeous muted nude-toned pink. It’s a soft, wearable “Kylie Jenner” shade, with a smooth moisturizing texture.
New MAC Huggable lip colors: new line of sheer, moisturizing, balm-like lipsticks. These are soft and buttery, and have a really pretty selection of shades. I picked up the shade”Im In.”
Sephora Ultimate Oil-In-Gel Lipstick Remover: I couldn’t resist this – this little guy was only $5 on the sephora website!
Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in “Naked”: Claudia has raved about these for ages, so I finally decided to give it a try! This shade is great for fair skin tones, and features a soft pink blush, a gorgeous pale shimmering highlight, and a neutral toned bronzer.
Clinique Cheek Pop: these blushes are so amazing, I was ecstatic to see that they were launching a few more shades! I picked up the shade “Rosy Pop”
Stila Convertible Colour in “Kitten”: I wasn’t joking when I said you can never have too much Kitten. This is a cream convertible colour, and can be used on the face, eyes, and lips!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in “Opal”: After becoming completely obsessed with the Becca skin perfecters, I couldn’t resist trying the liquid formula!
Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio: I have heard nothing but good things about these contour sticks. I love the idea of these convenient contour sticks, and can’t wait to use them!
