New Makeup Buys


Buying pretty makeup and taking cute pictures of it is one of my favourite hobbies. I love discovering a new makeup must have or repurchasing my tried and tested hero products. I am constantly adding to my collection just like ever other makeup addict out there, what can I say there are just way too many wonderful pretty products to ever say no to. 

Here are some of the recent additions to my makeup collection:


Zoeva En Taupe Palette 

I have been wanting to try a Zoeva palette for quite a while as the shade selection always looks so pretty and right up my street. I recently picked up the En Taupe palette as the colours just spoke to me and I feel like I will be able to create endless looks with this palette – full review with swatches coming soon.  


MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade 

This beautiful pearlescent MAC highlight reminds me of looking at a very pretty atlas. It has the most stunning colours running through it. It is a lovely subtle highlight which is perfect for day wear.


PS Pro Illuminating Primer

I have yet to use this primer but to me it looks like a dupe for MAC’s Strobe Creme but I will confirm once I put it through its paces.


MAC So Fabulous lipstick and Enchanted Eve lipgloss 

A match made in heaven. Two really pretty pink shades that work lovely on their own or beautifully together. A lip duo from MAC never ever let me down especially when they come in pink.


Dr Paw Paw Lip Ointment

This has been a well hyped product and one I had wanted to try for awhile. I expected to be blown away by it thanks to all the rave reviews but it didn’t really get me too excited. It is a nice lip salve but I had expected it to be much more effective and impressive. It is quite lightweight doesn’t have a scent and eases dry lips but doesn’t seem to have any real long-lasting results.


Sheet & eye masks from Sephora

Sheet and eye masks have taken over the world of skincare and I for one love them. They feel like a real treat for your skin and are so relaxing to pop on after a long stressful day. I picked up these 3 from Sephora; Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch, Tony Moly Clear Skin Sheet Mask and the Sephora Pearl Face mask – I know what my plans will be for tonight.


MAC Fix Plus Spray 

This is a repurchase for me and has quickly become a must have product. I love to spritz it on my beauty blender before blending in my under concealer as I feel it gives it a much more flawless finish. I also use this as a last step to set my makeup as it works wonderfully to get rid of that powdery look and is so refreshing on the skin.


Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in Vintage Rose

I have quite a few lipsticks from Gerard Cosmetics as I am totally obsessed with their beautiful gold encasing  and the pigment is always quite intense. I got this beautiful rose pink shade from Beauty Bay as I think it is a colour that will be so wearable and flattering.


Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Metallic Lipstick in Melted Metallic Dream House

Well that title is a mouthful! I am not going to lie it was the packaging that made me buy this one, I mean it is too pretty not to add to my collection. It is also an insanely pigmented liquid lipstick in a really striking bright pink shade that looks fantastic for a night out on the tiles, not that I have been having too many of them lately.

What do you think of my latest makeup additions?
