Hello Dolls!! Hope everyone is having a lovely day so far! Just wanted to show you guys a few stuff i picked up recently. I haven't really gotten a lot of makeup recently as i can't get a lot of the stuff i want here. e.g Ben Nye Banana visage powder and UD Vice palette.:( oooh and also the Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman.... hopefully soon....
Now unto the post...... First thing i have to show...
REVLON COLOR STAY FOUNDATION in TOAST
I have wanted to get this foundation for a while but never found it here.... Thanks to Konga i was able to get my hands on this FINALLY!!! A dear friend of mine from twitter sent me one in the shade Caramel but it was just too dark for me. The swatches and pictures i had seen of people who use this foundation online matched with my own skin tone and i was quite disapointed. I decided to grab the toast and it was a little too light but i mix then together and i get the perfect shade.. so YAAY!!
I am actually quite pleased with this product. It gives me a nice matte finish and it STAYS!!! It really does what it says even though it gives me a tough time when i try to take it off. I have worn this out a couple of times and i had a nice dewy face after a while as i have oily skin... These are still available on Konga for N2350 and they stock them in a variety of shades. I must say i do prefer this to my Mac Studio finish foundation, it controls my oilies and the price is great.
BOBBI BROWN EYESHADOW IN COPPER PENNY
I also picked up the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Copper penny recently. I realised that i do have a lot of shimmery eyeshadows but i don't have a decent GOLD eyeshadow.. I don't know if you know what i mean but YEAH!! :D... I have worn this quite a couple of times and its the prettiest eyeshadow ever. I love to apply this in the corners of my eye to make them pop...
BLACK OPAL COLOR FUSION POWDER
Now this one i saw on a friend and just had to have it!! She used it as a cheek highlight and she was glowing all over the place.LOL. I picked this up Kudi store in Lagos and it cost N1500.
Just look how pretty it looks from the picture.. Its the most gorgeous bronzer ever!! It gives a lovely glow. I like to dust this on the tip of my nose,forehead and my cheeks! POP!
RIMMEL 8HR COLOUR MOUSSE
I have never been a fan of cream eye shadows as they always crease after a while and aren't the easiest to apply even though they promise that. I saw these on KONGA and after reading reviews on them i decided to get the colours MERMAID and GET FRESH..
I must say i am really impressed with these.. I do use them as a base and they make my eye shadows look more vibrant and last longer. I also like to use GET FRESH on my eyes alone. It gives a nice shimmer.
These have been discontinued by Rimmel but can be found on KONGA for N450.. get it Ladies!!
I picked up some more Jordana lipsticks which i seem to be really enjoying. They are very creamy,pigmented and not drying on the lips AT ALL!! These are cheaper alternatives to the high end lispticks.. I cant figure out what MAC lipsticks these would be dupes for but if you want a nice pink and berry lip color i would suggest these....
MAC VIOLETTA LIPSTICK
This is a very bold and INTERESTING lipstick.. Its an amplified finish and very pigmented on the lips... Honestly, its one of those hard to describe colors... A light magenta, purple... :S.. It has a very pretty sheen to it and i have worn this out a few times at night because i'm too scared to wear this out during the day.
This is the boldest purple lipstick i own and i absolutely love it! Its a very sexy, in your face bright lip color. I will do a FOTD with this soon! Hopefully im bold enough to actually wear it during the day. :D
