Today I will show you what I purchased lately from different (web)shops. While I was writing this blogpost and taking pictures of my items, new packages arrived at my home! Sometimes I think: I need to stop ordering online. But how can you not order when mails of your favorite webshops arrive in your mail box with great offers?
Here is a overview of the items I purchased
Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF30 in the color Alaska – My sister went to France and got this for me. Nars is not available in the Netherlands and they don’t ship their items to us. So when I am abroad I always make sure to get something from Nars. This foundation is a really liquid consistency and it smells amazing! It says that it has a velvet matte finish but with my oily skin it still looks a bit dewy, so be sure to powder your face when you have oily skin. My sister got this for me at the Sephora FR for €39,95.
L´Oréal Paris Nailpolish in the color 556 Grenat Irreverent and 662 Moka Chic – I only purchased this because of the super cute bottle! It looks like the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb bottle with the squares. I already tried both of the polishes and they are really good. It is a perfume nail polish which means that it has a rosy scent when you apply it that stays for a whole week. The polish it self is long lasting and you can keep it without chipping for at least a week. They also have an amazing shiny effect because of the special oils they used. I purchased the nailpolishes from Etos for €8,99 each bottle.
Etude House Play 101 Stick Contour in the color Universal – If you are well known with the Korean make up products you will know the famous Korean makeup artist PONY! She did a collaboration with Etude House and created a line of makeup sticks. This contour stick has a shade and a highlight stick. The shade stick is okay, it doesn’t look orange and it blends well but I can’t say that I love it. I don’t like the highlight stick because it has a really white effect that doesn’t look subtile at all. I purchased the stick from eBay for $11,95.
Contour Cosmetics Contour Palette version 2 – I never knew this brand until my friend asked me to order from them. Apparently the makeup artist of Kim Kardashian used this palette on her. Me and my friend picked out the palette number 2 because this one had 1 cool color while the palette number 1 was for people with a more pink undertone. I tried this palette but I have to be honest: I can’t contour. I need a lot of practice before I can create the perfect look! We purchased this from their official webshop ContourCosmetics UK for £42.
Contour Cosmetics makeup bag – I also took this cute makeup bag from Contour Cosmetics. Do I need this? No. But they had an amazing offer because they existed for 1 year so everything was 1+1. This makeup bag is now on sale for £5 on ContourCosmetics UK .
Etos Fan brush – I see everyone using this fan brush for applying highlight, so I got a cheap brush from Etos. This does not work for me at all! I prefer using a real highlight brush instead of this fan brush. Maybe I didn’t use it right but I don’t think this brush makes my highlight look good. I purchased this fan brush from Etos for €2,90.
Etude House Tint My Brow Gel in the color 3 – This is a really fun product: it is a peel off eyebrow dye gel. You put this on your eyebrow, let it dry for 2 hours and then peel it off. Your brows are dyed with your color and it stays for at least a week! But the negative thing about this is that after a week the color starts to fade and it will turn orange (!!!). But it is still a really fun product to try out! I purchased this from eBay for $7,18.
Mamonde x Marymond Edition Cover Powder Cushion + Refill in the color 23 – My sister convinced me to get this cushion because of the cute cushion case. It has a ‘powder’ finish but for me it still looks dewy. I got a free refill with it which is good. The Korean cushions are the best but they are always too dewy for me even when they say it has a matte of powder finish. But I still like to use this for the sunny day’s because it contains SPF and PA protection (SPF 50+/PA +++). I purchased this from eBay for $26,12.
I am always looking for the best deals so that is the reason why I always receive my items from different sellers. And as you already noticed I sometimes purchase random stuff, when I’m bored I go online shopping. Someone has the same problem? 🙂
Thanks a lot for reading x
