Weekend Purchases #2: Spring Makeup
Hello, lovelies! Today I have the second installment of my weekend purchases (first post is here). This past weekend I got a few makeup items that had been on my wishlist for a few months. I’m happy with my neutrals collection so I went ahead and bought a lot of colors! Some of them are pastels which are great for the upcoming spring. I did get a lot of Illamasqua products because it’s one of my favorite brands.
theBalm Down Boy Blush: I have this blush already and I’ve showed swatches of it before (in my MAC Blush Palette post), but since I depotted it a bit roughly, it has since crumbled. I bought a replacement because Down Boy is a really beautiful blush.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Fruit Punch: Milani recently re-did their lipstick line and added some new shades. They have promoted their new lipsticks very well because I’ve seen a bunch of swatches across many blogs. Fruit Punch is the one color I HAD to have.
Bobbi Brown Powder Blush in Sand Rose: I enjoy Bobbi Brown makeup very much but I had never tried their powder blushes. I picked a really safe, everyday neutral pink to see what the quality is like.
NYX Eyeshadow Single in Morocco: I’ve been after this eyeshadow since last year. It’s the prettiest blue/purple (violet?) with a bit of pearlessence. It’s not completely opaque and needs building up but it’s very soft to the touch.
Make Up For Ever #60 Eyeshadow: Another MUFE eyeshadow that had been on my wishlist. Number 60 is a matte navy blue. It’s so pigmented! You just tap it with your finger and you get amazing color payoff.
Illamasqua Cream Pigments in Hollow, Dab and Bedaub: I’ve wanted these for ages! A matte mint green (Bedaub) and lilac (Dab) cream eyeshadow are not so easy to find. These have a really lovely texture. Hollow is a cool toned taupe which looks almost grey on me.
Illamasqua Eyeshadow Singles in Fledgeling and Inception: Fledgeling is a stunning matte kelly green and Fledgeling is a deep violet. Illamasqua makes really lovely colorful eyeshadows.
