A Big Fat Haul! x
Firstly, I know Ive not been blogging as much as I should and its not because Im lazy (sometimes)but because I have been England for the past weekend! I would of told you guys earlier but I wasn't sure if I was allowed so I just kept it all hush hush, sorry. A close family-friend got married so I went to her wedding which was amazing, my brother has just recently got engaged and it was my sisters birthday too, so there were lots of celebrations! Obviously though, that didn't stop me having a cheeky shopping day with my mum, where I had my first Starbucks in months (had to go for the new yogurt red berries Frappacino) and bought some absolute bargains from TK Maxx which i am over the moon with:)
The weather in England, Essex was better than I predicted to be fair, it was warm with blue skies most days but I still found it cold! I have to admit, I was in heaven strolling down the high streets and going into Boots and Superdrug, because we have neither of those where I live in spain! *cries* But saying that, I wasn't able to get anthing from Superdrug because I mayy or may not have spent all my pocket money in Tk Maxx in the beauty section:\
It was so hard choosing what to buy with the money I had (£10) because there were Essie nail varnishes, Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow quads, Bare Minerals sets and ugh I got so frustrated! (Does anybody else have this problem where you can't decide what to buy so your head just kind of explodes and you want to scream? Cause same.)
But in the end I got some Too Faced stuff which was amazing because Too Faced is probably one of my favourite high end brands:) and a Maybelline New York Big Eyes mascara because I'd been wanting it for ages!
I also got two pairs of shoes; a pair of white leather heeled Converse which were about £25.00 but my mum paid for them because she said it was my treat for getting good grades (WOOP WOOP) and a pair of Dune nude coloure pumps with a bit of bling on because they went with the dress I was wearing to the wedding! I'm not sure how much these were as my mum got these in the sales but I think they were around £38.00? My sister also gave me this really cute embroidered clutch bag with different diamonds and gems on, which I wore to the weding with my dress so I thought I would take a picture of that too because I love it way too much:)
Anyways, I thought I would do a little review on the products and what I think of them so far, along with some pictures that remind me of England because I thought they were quite cute<3
So after uploading all of those pictures, my computer has decided to hate me and not let me upload the final picture of my shoes so sorry bout that:(
On to the makeup, I have been loving these products because I've found that together, the Too Faced Amazing Face Foundation, Too Faced Lip Injection, Stila Stay All Day Conceler and the Maybelline New York Big Eyes Mascara all make the perfect natural makeup look. I use the shade Perfect Nude in the powdered-foundation as I'm quite fair and I don't really tan that easily (despite living in Spain) so this is the perfect every day shade for me. It feels really lightweight on my skin but in my opinion, you would have to use this with a long-wearing concealer as the coverage is good at first, but sometimes will wear off during the day. Even thought this isn't the best foundation I've ever tried, Im still happy with this as it was something like £6.99, the packaging is stunning and it doesn't brake me out in spots like some others.
I am absolutely IN. LOVE with the Too Faced Lip Injection in the shade Never Enough Nude like I can't even explain my love for this. It's the perfect natural lip shade for me; its a nudey shade (hence the name) with a slight hint of baby pink to it. This makes your lips look that little bit fuller, whilst moisturising them as well and even though it has that subtle nudey shade to it, it doesn't make you look like you have "concealer lips".
The Maybelline mascara has been really handy for me as I can never get to my bottom lashes and with the seperate smaller wand, it helps me to get to every one of them and make them fuller.
I only have a couple more days in school and then we are finishe for the summer so I am buzzinggg!
I will defo be taking more pictures for you guys and if you have any ideas on what you would like me to do as a future post then let me know<3
