I’m going to straight up admit that I have a makeup addiction. (I blame Boots/Superdrug on my exchange with all of their 3 for 2 sales even though makeup was like double the price lol.) A small beauty outlet near my house was going out of business. I happened to pass by one day while I was thrifting and picked up a few things for super cheap!
Bought these 3 things for about $10!! Pretty good considering it would normally cost maybe $25 in total at Walmart or something.
I can usually find a way to justify buying new makeup. Needed new mascara because my current one (mini Benefit They’re Real’ sample that I got with a magazine or something) is running out. Wanted to try the Baby Skin primer but didn’t want to pay the $10 for it because I have a mini Benefit Porefessional sample (also from a magazine, do you see my problem) that I’m still getting through. I can always justify a shimmery champagne eyeshadow because it’s what I wear every day.
I really like this eyeshadow pot! I’ve never tried any of Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo line but I’ve heard some pretty good things about it! I got this eyeshadow pot in the colour 55 Barely Brazen, It’s a super shimmery nude/champagne colour. I usually wear it to set my Bourjois Shimmer Shine cream eyeshadow in beige metallique. Very pigmented, I like it.
As I said before, I picked this up solely because it was on sale ($4 as opposed to $10). It’s a clear primer that aims to hide/minimize pores and grant the look of soft baby skin. I haven’t used this on my entire face yet, just on my cheeks and on the sides/around my nose. I don’t really know if it’s helping my makeup stay on properly but I guess I’ll test it out some more.
Kinda disapointed when I saw the brush. I was kinda expecting something with longer bristles at least? I guess in my mind, I was expecting it to be like the Benefit They’re Real mascara. I got the waterproof formula which I never really buy since it’s such a hastle to take off!
I’m not sure if it’s because I have straight asian eyelashes or if the formula is too wet, but it doesn’t work as well on me as it does on others I guess. Didn’t really hold curl, made my lashes a little longer but nothing amazing. Oh well, just gonna use this up and then go back to Benefit or L’Oreal!
Glad I didn’t end up spending a ton of money on this – this haul is an alright sacrifice for $10. At least the eyeshadow is nice!
Have you tried any of these? Do they work on you?
Any recommendations for other mascaras/primers would be appreciated as well!
