It is nice to treat yourself to a few new holiday items, be it clothes, shoes or make up. There is something about going away that makes you think that you need a whole new wardrobe or make up bag. Before I came to Mexico, I made a few purchases that, aside from the lipstick (need to change it up a bit!), I have literally used everyday and I know will see me through the coming Summer months!
I had a sample of this a while ago so I knew I loved this before buying it. It makes for a great primer, not to add longevity but to give a beautiful glow to the skin. It really illuminates the skin making it look fresh and radiant!
If you saw my recent post on my new burberry purchases you would have seen this beauty. It is a sheer orangey red that is perfect for the summer and sunny holidays. Glides on like a dream, hydrates the lips and adds a sheer wash of vibrancy to the lips!
Before I bought this I was on the fence about whether i would like this as I tend to prefer powder bronzers but thought it would be great to keep in my bag for touch ups. I should have had more faith as I have fallen head over heels in love with this bronzing stick. It glides onto the skin, blends easily with your fingers and gives that perfect sun kissed glow to the skin that actually looks real.
I needed a waterproof mascara to wear during the day on holiday. I have loved the original Maybelline The Falsies for years now so decided to stick with what I loved. You get the same fluttery volumized lashes, and actually it holds up pretty well when jumping in and out of the pool and sea. I wouldn’t say it was 100% waterproof as I did experience a bit of smudging, but in 30+ Celsius temperatures and a lot of water, it did a pretty great job. The best I have tried FYI, is the Lancôme Hypnose Waterproof which does. not. budge.
