Top 5 Summer Make Up Purchases

Friday, 21 August 2015
Some of you may know that I've just got back from my holiday in America and I bought a lot of make up on my travels!
There wasn't a Sephora anywhere near where we were staying so I just bought a lot of drugstore make up that I'm unable to get in the UK. There was so much choice wherever I went and it was ridiculously cheap so I couldn't stop myself from stocking up! Anyway, I thought I'd narrow it down and show you my top 5 favourites that I got!




Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow 


Bottom left: 24 Bella Bronze Metallic, Bottom right: 23 Bella Copper Metallic, Top: Bella Champagne Shimmer 


Left to Right: 24 Bella Bronze Metallic, 23 Bella Copper Metallic, Bella Champagne Shimmer


These eyeshadows are amazing, especially the metallic shadows. They're super pigmented and the gel-like formula is lovely to apply as there is no fall out. The Bella Champagne shadow is less pigmented than the others as it's more of a shimmer. It looks beautiful when applied to highlight the centre of the eyelid or the inner corner. I can't remember the exact price of these but I think I got buy 1 get 50% off so they were a great bargain! I wish I had got more of these at this price and I would love the collect all of them. 

E.L.F Golder Bronzer 


This bronzer gives the skin a beautiful sun kissed glow, perfect when on holiday and in the summer. It acts as a highlight and bronzer as it's very shimmery. If you prefer a matte bronzer then this definitely isn't for you but if you like a bronzed, glowing look then this will be perfect for you! 

E.L.F 3-in-1 Mascara 


I actually only bought this because the mascara I had with me was waterproof and would destroy my lashes trying to get it off. I think this was around $2-3 so it was super cheap. I wasn't expecting anything amazing but I was very surprised when this actually made my lashes look long and improved the volume. I also love the shape of the brush as it gets each individual lash and also doesn't clump them together. Another great product from ELF! 

New York Colour High Definition Liquid Eyeliner in Extra Black 


Similar to the mascara I got this because I forgot to bring a liquid eyeliner on holiday with me. I literally only went for this because it was really cheap in Target, and I'm so glad I did because it's the most amazing liquid eyeliner I have ever used! It glides on so smoothly and easily, I couldn't believe it when I first used it. It stays on all day without smudging or fading yet washes off easily at the end of the day. I really hope I can get this in the UK as it's definitely my new favourite eyeliner! My eyeliner takes like two minutes to do now rather than spending twenty minutes re-applying it like I used to do!  

Cover Girl 250 Sultry Sienna Lipstick 



I don't usually wear lipstick on holiday but I wanted to look more put together for when I was in DC, so I got this beautiful dark nude lipstick. This reminds of a Kylie Jenner lip which I know is very popular at the moment and it was on sale in Walmart so I had to get it! I'll be wearing this all the time when I get back to uni as I feel it just makes my make up look more mature and sophisticated! It lasted all day and even survived evening meals!


Thank you for reading :)
