RECENT MAKEUP HAUL

Hi everyone. I went shopping a couple of days ago and picked up some amazing bargains in TKMAXX so I thought I’d show you :) At the minute, TKMAXX is probably my favourite shop to buy makeup because you can get some amazing brands for a fraction of the price. If you get the chance to I would definitely have a pop in!

Too Faced

Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bigger Berry & Eastwood Red
These were the first things I saw and immediately knew I needed to buy them! Originally, I only purchased one, which was Bigger Berry, however I realised that I probably wouldn’t get them that cheap anywhere else so I went back and bought another shade. I was lucky enough to find these for £5.99 each, which is great considering they normally cost £15.

Normally I don’t like lip tints because I can never find a colour that I like, but I absolutely love these ones. They smell so fruity and amazing. I don’t really like wearing pinky colours, so I really like that these are buildable so I can have a very sheer colour. Another thing I love is that these are lip plumpers. I’m not really sure why, but I love the tingly feeling you get when these are applied, makes me feel like they’re actually working. I find them so moisturising as well, they leave my lips super soft.

Amazing Face Foundation in Warm Honey –
I was sceptical to buy this at first because it’s quite dark, however in the end I decided to because it was only £5.99 and I thought it would be a really nice/subtle contour shade. I really don’t understand how TKMAXX can sell this for £5.99 when it would normally cost £23.

I really like how this contains SPF15, since it’s starting to get warmer in the UK now it’s going to be really nice for summer. I haven’t actually used this yet, however I’m very excited to try it out, I hope it doesn’t end up looking to orangey on my skin.

Illamasqua 

Fine Pencil in Classic – 
Like the foundation, I wasn’t sure whether to purchase this or not because when I tested it, it felt quite sharp and hard, which put me off a little. The thing that swayed me was the colour, I really love the colour! It’s kind of a dull grey colour, which I think would make a lovely eyeliner.

I found that when it warmed up, it softened up a lot, which I was so pleased about because I think it’s a really nice product and I would have been pretty gutted if I didn’t end up liking it. I managed to get this for £4.99 instead of £11, so I was pretty pleased.

Lipstick in Magnetism
The lipstick was a massive yes for me. Illamasqua is probably my favourite brand at the minute so when I saw this for £5.99 I couldn’t say no! It’s classed as a deep rasberry pink and is such a pretty colour. Like I said above, I don’t normally go for pinks but this is a really lovely colour and I think it would look really nice over the top of a brown lip liner.

Stila

Stay All Day Vinyl Lipgloss in Terracotta Vinyl
I’ve never tried anything from Stila before so when I saw these products I was really excited. This is another thing that I knew I needed to buy as soon as I saw it. It’s a gorgeous browny/orangy colour, so basically like the name a terracotta haha. 

I love that this lip product contains organic green coffee oil because my lips get really dry, so using something on them that contains oil to help hydrate them is great. Another thing I love about this is the smell, it smells so sweet and toffee like, I love it.

Like all of the others, I got this for a really good price. I only payed £4.99 for it instead of £18

Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Indigo
I’ve been looking for a new eyeliner for a while now, so I thought I would try this Stila one. I always wear black, so I decided to have a change it up a bit and go for a navy colour. I have blue eyes so I was a bit worried that it would look a bit odd, however I think it could look quite nice applied when I’m experimenting with different eyeshadow colours.

The only only thing that i’m not too keen on is that it’s waterproof. I know it’s probably a good thing, however it takes so long and is so hard to take off, however for £3.99 it was a bargain.

Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Liner in Electric
Now i’ve definitely saved the best until last. Th is my absolute favourite thing I bought, I’m obsessed with it! I don’t think I’ve ever seen and eyeliner as pretty in my entire life. Its’s so pigmented and sparkly and amazing! This is one of those products that when you get you can’t top looking at it and trying it. the fact I picked it up for only £3.99 as well instead of £14 just made my day.

I know it’s not an everyday colour, but I think winged out it will look so pretty for a night out. It will really reflect the light and look amazing! I also really like how it has a thin sponge tip, makes it a lot easier to apply.
