Beauty Buys



Today I wanted to feature some beauty products I've been using recently! Since my blog is mainly about fashion, I thought it would be great add some of my occasional makeup/beauty purchases. I hope you all enjoy my reviews! :)

1. Maybelline "New Vivids" lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin 885 : Love the creamy formula and the packaging. Been using this lipstick for the past few weeks, and it's one of my go to lipstick for when I go out.

2. Revlon Photoready Eye Primer + Brightner : A decent highlighter for great use underneath and on top of makeup. The only disadvantage is that it takes forever for the product to develop in the twist bottom :(

3. e.l.f Undereye Concealer & Highlighter : The day that I purchased it I tried it when I got home and it was AMAZING! Usually underpriced drug store makeup gets a bad representation for not having the best quality but e.l.f products are the expectation! This concealer not only lasted long but matched my skin tone perfectly. Plus the highlighter acts as a eye shadow primer, and its def. lives up to its description.

4. Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Lyrcaflex Mascara : Just bought this seeing that it was on sale and I need a new mascara because the previous brand I was using was not impressive. The brush for this mascara is gigantic and it builds in volume as you use it. After three coats of this mascara my lashes looked perfect,natural and 5x longer!

5. e.l.f Liquid Eyeliner : I hardly use pencil eyeliners anymore because they really don't have the lasting power as liquid eyeliner does. Another amazing product by e.l.f and I purchased two of the liquid eyeliners.
Great thin applicator brush for natural looks, and builds as you apply more product for a dramatic look!

6. Ponds - Dark Spot Correcting Cream : Great scent, creamy and light formula . I`ve previously used Ponds for a everyday moisturize but my skin was too oily to discontinue to use the product. I was happy to discover this a few days ago and I instantly fell in love with cream! The product claims to see visible results in two weeks, I've been only using the cream for only 4 days so hopefully I'll see some results!

7. Rimmel London - Glam Eyes HD in 007 "Heart of Gold" : My go to everyday eye shadow never lets me down! Just stocked up on this again, amazing vibrant colours and great to use as gold smokey eye look.

8. Essence - All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder : A brand I stumbled upon in Shoppers Drug Mart recently when I was looking for a replacement for my eyebrow pencil (yes, completely random...) I was looking to invest in a translucent powder for everyday use. The package is slim, no messy powder, blends wells!

Love this liptsick! :)

Another recent purchase I made were Victoria Secret's perfumes "Such A Flirt" & "Secret Charm".
I was looking for everyday perfume that were lightly scented, extended wear time and came in small bottles to carry for travel and work. After previously using the "Such A Flirt" body spray I gravitated towards the scent, but then I discovered "Secret Charm" so I ended up purchasing both perfumes! Love that the packaging is simple and cute. These perfumes are also a great Xmas gift since they can be socking stuffers!
