For some, shopping is exhilarating, relaxing even. The urge to purchase overtakes them and they often find themselves with 300 dollars worth of makeup or clothes after. However, I am quite different: I get anxious and stressed. It is just not fun for me. So, when my friend invited to go splurge a little, I was like, “gurl, do you even know me?“ But, I obviously did not want to dampen the mood, therefore I said yes but that “yes,“ came with attachments. I made a list of everything I wanted, even prioritize the items and included their price – sales only – and the store. I was just trying to avoid my ultimate demise, alright. So, here is what I got and I’ve added a mini review of the items because some lived up to the hype, while others did not.
Pro Artist Contour Palette, Price: 12.99
In the words of Simon Cowell, “it`s a no for me.“ This product is not easily applicable nor does it necessarily blend well. Personally, I prefer a warmer toned contour, but this palette has a greyer one that makes my skin ashier. I understand some people like that look, I simply do not.
Nyx Liquid Suede, Price: 9.99
Quite frankly, I was expecting more from this lipstick since Nyx is often recommended by most of the beauty gurus I watch. So while I found that it slides on with ease, it is vibrant and lightweight, after a couple hours it became really flaky – even more after eating- and settled a lot into my lip lines: making them more apparent. Therefore, I would recommend always exfoliating and moisturising your lips before using this lipstick. Nonetheless, it is an affordable lipstick, perfect for those who prefer a creamy but matte finished look that does not dry their lips.
Danielle Blush Brush, Price: 5.99
Out of the makeup products I got, this is my favourite. It has nice soft bristles that do not shed but blend to perfection. Likewise, it is eco-friendly and cost effective, so there is not really any cons about this brush, but I am yet to try the entire collection.
Absolute NewYork , Design N` Define Eyeliner, Price: 7.99
At first use, this eyeliner was really pigmented and easy to apply, however, after only using on two or three occasions over my eyeshadow it started to become dry and inconsistent. I tried dipping it in eye solution since that is known to help, but the tip was far way too gone. I had actually really liked it, but I would now rather invest in gel liners since they tend to last longer.
Top // Urban Planet
Pants // h&m
Crop top // Urban Planet
DIY high waisted jeans // Value Village
Army Green Crop Top // Urban Planet
Cream Crop Top // Urban Planet
Basic white T – shirt // Urban Planet
So, this all!! As you can see, I bought most of my clothes from urban planet and that is because they had a huge sale and I had come knowing exactly what I wanted.
