[Update] Another Makeup Haul !

Hey Guys !

So it’s been awhile since I bought any makeup and so I was looking around to build my collection . These few days I’ve been out looking at different stores and looking for makeup that are usable , wearable and affordable . Below are the items I have purchased .

Oh please stop me now .

I try my best to buy items within my budget (I ain’t rich , I can’t afford expensive brands even though I really want to) , although they still add up to quite a bit in the end .

The items are as followed :

ZaPerfect Action Mascara (Waterproof) & Original Eyelash Curler , both came together in a set .

NYXMatte Lipstick in shade MLS 10 Perfect Red

NYXJumbo Eye Pencil in shade 604 Milk

COLLECTIONShimmer Shades in palette 2. Blushalicious

Yep so that’s all for now . I have been looking for a good , affordable bronzer (since the Essence one didn’t really show on my skin) and Sephora had a pretty good product . I was also looking for a waterproof white eyeliner since I already have every other colour except white , and NYX Jumbo Pencils are amazing because they’re so creamy and smooth , and really pigmented .. AND affordable !  I needed a primer as well , so I grabbed one from NYX .

I have also been looking for nude and sharp red lipsticks , however I only managed to find two red ones , and no good nude ones . Most red lipsticks fall between plum or orange , and it wasn’t easy finding the right shade I wanted . The two lipsticks I picked up from Sephora and NYX are both really pretty , reds that are not too shiny yet not too dull .

Falsies were something I always see people use in tutorials but never managed to grab some for myself to try , and so since I was at Sephora and saw some pretty ones that got my attention , I picked up some for myself . The Sephora lashes are beautiful , one has a ‘winged’ edge and the other comes in stunning purple . I had also grabbed the Za Mascara/Curler set since I didn’t own a curler and wanted to try it out .

I love.. LOVE coloured mascaras because they can really make a look pop ! I’ve been trying to find them since I first bought makeup , and there wasn’t much out there in the market , Singapore’s stores anyway . The first coloured mascaras I found were in Sephora , but they only came in brown , blue and purple , but the solution looked really clumpy and the wands were hard so I skipped them . Today I visited Watsons and found some brands I haven’t seen before , and actually , with luck , found some affordable coloured mascaras !

Which leads me to this paragraph . COLLECTION . I’ve actually never come across this brand before , not the previous visit to Watsons anyway . The first item I picked up from this brand was the Extreme Coloured Lengthening Mascara and it came in black and blue , and of course I took the blue one . I took the wand out and the blue was beautiful , stunningly bright and bold . The solution didn’t get clumpy on the wand either . The other two items that caught my eye were the Shimmer Shades palettes . At first I didn’t really pay any attention , but I remembered I didn’t have any good shimmer blushes with me and decided to do a swatch , and to my surprise , they were really pigmented . They are shimmery yes , but not overpowering . It’s a good amount of shimmer to make one look glowing , yet not dewy and oily . In the 1. Way To Go palette , the the four shades are on a more neutral brown/beige/skin pink tones , and on the 2. Blushalicious palette , the four shades are of pinks , bright pink/raspberry/plum shades . The 1. Way To Go palette is more pigmented and stronger , while the 2. Blushalicious palette is lighter although still shows through on your cheeks for a more natural pink , wouldn’t want to have super rosy cheeks would ya !

I picked up the nail polishes because I didn’t have those shades with me . The white , I always wanted a white nail polish . The dark red (for Halloween) – I wanted a bloody crimson red but none of the brands in Sephora carried that shade so I picked one closest to what I was looking for . And I got the nails inc. Leather Effect nail polish because it was really pretty and I loved the effect on the nail , without being too rough like the Concrete Effect one , and would look amazing during Halloween (black and grainy) !

Well guys , that’s all for my haul . I will be a little busy tonight and the whole of tomorrow so the next review will up either tomorrow night or in two days . I will also be doing reviews and swatches for all the products listed in this haul when I get the time !

I have added some new categories/pages to my blog – that’s one of the new updates today . They’re more precise now , and it’ll be easier to find what you’re looking for . The new categories include Tips & Information and Tutorials , when previously it was just Tips & Tutorials . I split up the Tutorials into it’s own category because I’ve been trying out some makeup looks in my free time (I have three done now) and I may be updating that category soon with looks I’ve created .

For this year’s Halloween , I have also purchased a ton of SFX makeup items . I may also be doing reviews and tutorials some time soon on them , or at least when I am good at using them . Lots of paint , blood , wax and liquid latex !

Right . Now I need to start experimenting with liquid latex on my skin – because who buys liquid latex ONE DAY before the Halloween event and hope to be able to create some good looks . Yes , that’s right .. ME ! Okay well maybe it’s because I bought Gelatine on Monday and that didn’t work out , bought SFX Wax on Wednesday and that didn’t work either , so liquid latex on Friday , and I really hope this works .. hooray ..

No sleep for tonight as usual . Please save me . I’ll end it off here .

Don’t forget to like , share and leave your comments and opinions and let me know what you think about the products and my review , thanks !

Stay tune for more reviews , tips and tutorials in the near future !

Love , Gee .
