A LITTLE DRUGSTORE MAKEUP HAUL ✖

20. maj 2016

Hi my loves. I still have a lot of makeup on the way, but I thought I’d show you some of the things that already arrived. I think this time I will do a haul, showing you what I got and then do another blog post with review and swatches. That way I get to try out the products a lot more and get you a full detailed review instead. Hope that’s okay with you guys!

In this little haul I got some stuff from Makeup Revolution and Wet n Wild. Some things I’ve been looking at for a while now and finally just went ahead and bought them!

I’ve been really into contour/cream contour/bronzing – something I’ve always done but for some reason I’m EXTRA into it, actually rather obsessed.

I knew I would love these two contour kits from Makeup Revolution. I bought the powder version and the cream version:

This is what the packaging look like. It gets dirty right away, so don’t mind that.

Super sleek, and not cheap looking at all. Makeup Revolution is so affordable but always has the most amazing packaging – and product. Their quality is crazy good!

I’m just in love and can’t wait to play around.

Even the boxes are beautiful!

I also got this from Makeup Revolution! A bronzer, a highlight and a blush palette in Ultra Fair.

Look at that blush! Wow. It has some golden shimmer to it, which I love.

I swatched all of the products and they are VERY pigmented and creamy, so it looks promising! I will give you guys an update when I’ve tried everything and have an opinion 🙂

Then I got the new Wet n Wild brushes! Heard soooo many good things. I normally stay away from drugstore brushes to be honest, but these were so affordable, cute and well liked. I started out with 3. A fan brush, a crease brush and a shadow brush. They are all VERY soft, more than you’d expect. They pick up product perfectly and I’m very satisfied. I need more!

I don’t have a close-up of the shadow brush, my camera decided to work against me.

Hope you guys enjoyed xo

 

A little Colourpop haul (part 1)

5. maj 2016

Hi guys! Here’s a small Colourpop haul, I have a lot more on the way, so there will probably be a part 2! In the first round I bought the new Ultra Satin Lip in “Echo Park”, this is one of their best formulas EVER. So comfortable and I’ve only heard good reviews – which I totally understand now. I’m obsessed. The other one is their matte liquid lipstick in “Trap” – which everyone knows, it’s SUPER popular and so hard to get your hands on. Of course I had to have it in my collection! So now I can proudly say I own Trap, haha.

Then I bought one of their new lippie stix in “Hype Girl” and oh my god … It instantly became my favorite. So smooth, so creamy and the color is beyond beautiful. Like I was speechless.

The last one is one of their eyeshadows, also a new one called “Wattles”. Guys this is my new favorite eyeshadow, I’m not even kidding. The formula and color = perfection. I can’t even believe it. Colourpop is so affordable but you get such high quality, it’s crazy.

Seriously don’t have ANY shadows like this. It’s a dusty beige pink in a Satin finish. $5.00 buy it HERE.

This is the lippie stix in “Hype Girl”. It’s a soft coral nude in a matte finish. It doesn’t look matte in the pictures because it wasn’t dry yet. $5.00 buy it HERE.

From top to bottom: “Trap” and “Echo Park”. You can obviously see that the first one is matte and the last one is a satin. Trap is a dusty greyed out beige. $6.00 Buy it HERE.  Echo Park is a warm peachy nude. $6.00 buy it HERE.

Here’s what they look like with flash:

They’re all so beautiful! They look even better in person. I prefer the satin formula, feels so  amazing on the lips 🙂

HAUL AND REVIEW || ABH, RCMA, MAKEUP FOREVER, STILA, WET N WILD ETC

10. marts 2016

Hi my loves! As soon as I get my paycheck I’m buying makeup. And spend most of it. I know, it’s bad. So I have another haul for you guys, not as big as I wanted it to be, but I’m saving the rest of my money, so I can buy makeup later this month. Look at me being an adult!

Anyway, I got some goodies, both drugstore and high end so there’s something for everyone.

DSC00485

If you follow me on social media, you already know that I finally got my hands on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ liquid lipstick in Pure Hollywood and I swear I cried. It’s impossible to get in Denmark, you can’t buy it here, BUT a online store opened and they began selling it. First they didn’t have the colors I wanted, but I stalked them and when I saw they got Pure Hollywood, I was the first to get my hands on it and I’ve used it ever since. It quickly became my holy grail. I was afraid it was going to be too nude, since I’m really pale and it’s tricky with shades like that, but it looked PERFECT. So happy! I bought it here

IMG_9538

Another thing that’s (almost) impossible to get in Denmark, is the Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation. At least for me, because I don’t live anywhere near a Sephora. I did find a website that’s shipping to Denmark, the only catch: shipping is $14,72 which is a lot, but I wanted this foundation for so long, so I caved in. I bought it HERE.

DSC00418

From the same website I also got the RCMA loose powder, that I talked about in another post. Found it on 4 different websites but it was sold out, but not on this website. Lucky me! On my FB page, you can see the links and sign up to get an email when it’s back in stock: https://www.facebook.com/beautybymadsen/

DSC00472

From Wet n Wild, I got the popular Rose Champagne Glow To Reflect Shimmer Palette. I like it, but after some time it got a bit patchy. You don’t just get a highlight, but also a bit color which I really liked. I have to try it a bit more, but it’s nice.

DSC00462 DSC00466

Also from Wet n Wild I got the Mega Glo Illuminating Powder in Strike-A-Pose-Rose. It looked different online, so when I got it, it was a bit disappointing. It looks kinda scary in the picture, but I think it’ll be great once I play around with it.

DSC00458

You guys know how much I love Rimmel’s Kate Moss line, especially the lipsticks, so I had to try the Kate Sculpting Face Kit. I LOVE the packaging, wow. Looks so pretty. You get a highlight, a contour (though it’s more of a bronzer) and a blush. It comes in 3 different colors. The contour is more warm in real life and unfortunately a bit too orange. I think the other shades would be better, but I can live with it. I really like the blush, the highlight .. Not very pigmented. But if you want to have a natural highlight, this would be perfect.

DSC00397

So for liquid lipsticks besides the ABH one, I got 3. The first one is Milani in Adorable. Similar to Pure Hollywood, but a bit darker. The liquid lipsticks from Milani was limited edition but they brought it back and I snatched it really quick. I was so mad I didn’t get it the last time. Sadly I heard this color and formula is bad, but the other ones should be good. I haven’t tried it yet, so I guess I’ll have to see.

DSC00536DSC00533

The other two are from Stila. I already own a lot of them, but these colors are my favorites! Also holy grail, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love them. They’re called Caramello and Baci. They have gold packaging (YESSS), where the “normal” Stila liquid lipsticks are black. These are limited edition, so keep that in mind.

I couldn’t get them to show up true to color on my camera, so I’m showing you pictures from Google, so you can see how beautiful they are.

Caramello and Baci.

I’ve been on a hunt to find a good drugstore eye primer. Milani came out with one and I had to try it. I was hoping it would cancel out the colors on my lid, but since it only has a tint, it didn’t. Not much to say about it, I like it but I don’t love it.

 

DSC00486

In this haul I also want to include the two things I bought from Sigma. A lipliner and a lipstick. Can we just talk about the packaging for a moment? So impressed. It feels expensive and high end. I saw this combination in a video and it looked beautiful. The lipliner is HUGE. Way bigger than Macs, it’ll take so long to finish it. It’s very creamy and easy to apply, definitely one of my favorites. The color is too dark on it’s own, so I like to fill in my lips with it and then put the lipstick on top. So pretty! They are a lot more nude/pink in real life. The lipstick formula is amazing, very pigmented and also really creamy.

The lipstick is called Dance Till Dawn and the lip liner is called In Fine Feather.

So that was it! Hope you enjoyed 🙂

 

MINI HAUL / LIQUID LIPSTICKS

8. februar 2016

Hey loves! I bought some liquid lipsticks (more on the way), and thought I would share it with you guys.

These 3 are from LA Splash – one my all time favorite brands. These are so comfortable, it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing liquid lipstick. They smell really nice too. The only negative thing I have to say is: they last for DAYS. They are impossible to get off. I found out that you can buy something that does the job (also from LA Splash) so I may have to buy that haha!

So from left to right: Charmed is a liptint mousse but pretty much works like the others. Romance is a velvet matte liquid lipstick. Ghoulish is their lip couture waterproof liquid lipstick. It’s also the most popular one. Even if they sucked I would buy them just for the packaging, I mean … WOW. Crazy beautiful! I’m definitely buying more.

DSC00259

The last one I got is Stone from Dose Of Colors. If you don’t know this one, you have been living under a rock – just saying! One of the most talked about products on YouTube. It took me 2 years (no joke) to get it. One day it was in stock and I quickly bought it and an hour later it was gone again. This is the most beautiful color, right up my alley. I’m so glad I managed to get my hands on it, because I can see why it’s so popular.

IMG_9089

I didn’t get to do swatches of these, I’m so sorry. If you guys really want some, please leave a comment or let me know, I’ll gladly do them in another post!

 

MINI HAUL – MILANI, STILA, ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS ETC

19. november 2015

Hi guys! I’ve had some trouble with my computer, but I’m finally back! I’ve ordered a lot of makeup and the last couple of days I’ve received some if it, so I thought I’d do a mini haul.

The first thing I’m going to show you, is a blush from Milani that I’ved wanted for so long, it’s their insanely popular rose blush in “romantic rose”. So beautiful and pigmented! Milani actually liked this picture on Instagram and I had a heart attack, just saying.

IMG_8326

Next is the Anastasia Beverly Hills illuminator in “Starlight”. Perfect for us pale girls! I was going crazy when I got it, even my mom was jealous – not that I blame her because that highlighter is FLAWLESS. Originally I wanted to wait until it would be available in my country, but oh my god you guys .. I couldn’t do it. I found an English  website where all of their illuminators/highlighters were available AND they shipped to Denmark. I took that as a sign!

You can find it here: cultbeauty.co.uk

IMG_8300

The next thing I got was the limited edition set from Stila. As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine. First of all: you get 12 eyeshadows, a lip gloss AND a mascara! It was cheap and even had a discount. The eyeshadows are INSANE. I can’t even begin to tell you how creamy and pigmented they are. On top of that, the colours are so beautiful it actually hurts looking at it and look at the packaging!

So I’ve tried the mascara .. At first when I saw the wand I was like “nope”, but I tried it anyway and holy ****. I’ve never tried anything like it. My lashes looked so good and I will definitely repurchase it. I’m still in shock. I got this set from beautybay.

FYI: Stila Cosmetics liked both of my pictures .. Fangirl moment!

IMG_8337

IMG_8330

Last but not least, another highlighter! This one is from the amazing brand Pür Minerals. I’ve talked about this brand before. I had no high hopes for this one. I’ve heard good things about it, but I wasn’t sure if it was for me.

Then I tried it and it was magical. I’d say it’s just as good as the ABH highligher. Just a lot cheaper! I would actually say that it reminds me a lot of The Balm’s mary lou manizer. Very very pigmented and you don’t need much before you’re glowing like never before. This can also be found on beautybay!

IMG_8251

So guys I have some very exciting things coming up, I can’t wait to show you! Btw this was my first post in english .. So weird and exciting at the same time. I’m just so glad  I got to blog again. Stay tuned!

HAUL PART 2

22. september 2015

Så kom der lidt flere af de ting jeg har bestilt, så nu er det tid til part 2 af mit haul, og jeg advarer: jeg kom til at gå lidt amok med læbeprodukter. Det gik slet ikke op for mig, hvor meget af det jeg havde købt, før jeg havde det hele samlet .. Ups! Jeg har haft en eller anden læbestift/lipliner obsession denne måned. Men man kan jo heller ikke eje for mange læbestifter!

Her er det hele samlet og jeg er in love! Der er 8 NYX lip liners og de er simpelthen de bedste!! Selvom nogle af farverne kan se lidt unaturlige ud, så er det faktisk slet ikke tilfældet. Når først man putter det på læberne ser det ud som det skal. Forresten har jeg ikke lavet swatches, men hvis I er interesserede og gerne vil have nogen, så efterlad endelig en kommentar, så skal jeg gerne gøre det!

IMG_7613

 

 

Liquid lipsticks! I hvert fald de to første, den sidste er en lipgloss. Er in love! Det er lige mine farver, og jeg kan simpelthen ikke få nok af dem. Den første er en liquid lipstick fra Sleek, i farven “Birthday Suit”, nummer to er fra mit yndlings mærke Gerard Cosmetics og den tredje er fra Becca!IMG_7618

 

Denne læbestift er også fra Gerard Cosmetics i farven “Buttercup”, og jeg er SÅ glad for den, har næsten gået med den hver dag!

 

IMG_7614

 

Så er der denne fra Sleek .. Og jeg er faktisk skuffet. Den så sådan ud, da jeg modtog den og farven er off og ikke særlig pigmenteret Oh well!

 

IMG_7616

 

Denne læbestift er faktisk fra Rimmel’s Kate Moss kollektion og det er nummer 14. Den er så smuk, jeg har aldrig prøvet deres læbestifter, var positivt overrasket!

IMG_7624

Så er der mine NYX lipliners, jeg ved virkelig ikke, hvordan jeg har kunne leve uden dem .. De er fantastiske!

IMG_7615

 

De sidste er NYX’ Butter Gloss & Soft matte lip cream – mega pigmenterede, man behøver ikke at bruge en læbestift under dem.

Navnene i rækkefølge: Fortune Cookie, Tokyo x 2, Apple Strudel og Eclair!

 

IMG_7617

 

Til sidst er disse makeup børster fra Real Techniques, nu har jeg dem alle, så de var de sidste jeg manglede i min “samling”. Skønne børster!

Mac studio waterweight foundation – ny!

17. september 2015

Så er den nye Mac foundation landet! Jeg er helt oppe at køre, det er ingen hemmelighed, at jeg elsker Mac over alt på jorden, især deres foundations, så da jeg så den nye var udkommet, kunne jeg ikke få armene ned!

Den beskrives som fjerlet, superbehagelig, holder i mange timer, skjuler skønhedsfejl som fx synlige porer og fine linjer, og dækningen er nem at justere. Jeg har set diverse reviews og den har indtil videre fået gode anmeldelser. Dækningen skulle være light to medium, hvilket er det eneste negative jeg lige kan finde ved den .. Jeg kan godt lide en god dækkende foundation, men oh well! Men den skulle jo være nem at justere, så man i sidste ende får det eftertragtede “full coverage”, så mon ikke det går! Den skulle endda være bedre end Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, som jeg havde med i mit tidligere indlæg over favorit foundations (kan læses HER). Er virkelig spændt! Har I tænkt jer at prøve den?
