                                                                    My Mini Makeup Hall !!

Hey guys! so I thought id make my first ever blog post about my shopping trip last week. I was a little stressed as I had my first pro makeup job for a wedding so I went to get a few things (and came home with everything!!) :) .

I went to Clinique and Urban Decay which are two of my favourite brands and got a little carried away! So here goes....

First I got these Clinique Chubby Stick (£17.00)
the colours I chose where: woppin' watermelon, mega melon and heaping hazelnut. As soon as I tried these I loved them! they are quite sheer as they are not a lipstick they are a lip balm. The slightly glossy finish is beautiful and they are so moisturising, and they wear off really nicely. :)

Sorry for the swatches they are not the best think I need some practice! so at the top is mega melon which is a lovely deep coral colour, next down is woppin' watermelon which is a nice light pink and at the bottom is heaping hazelnut that is a lovely nude colour. There are so many colours to choose from so make sure you try them out!

From Clinique, I also brought two concealers.

These are the Clinique Airbrush Concealer (£18.00), I got two lighter shades, the lightest in Fair and Neutral Fair! I'm not a massive fan of pens like these but I really like the concealer as its for all skin types and, with having very sensitive eyes I like to use products I no wont make my eyes stream and that's why I chose this brand. The concealer really does brighten the eyes and I also use it to illuminate down the nose and forehead slightly. And best of all it does not sit in any lines :)

So at the top is the shade Fair, this is very pink toned and suitable for fair skinned, the bottom shade is neutral fair that would be suited to most skin tones. They blend in really nicely with a damp sponge which is my favourite method! 

Now on to Urban Decay!

First I got these three 24/7 glide on lip pencil (£13.00)
in Native, Streak and Naked. I was so excited to try these and they definitely did NOT fail to amaze me, the colours to choose from are all amazing! they a creamy but easy to control, and they stay on FOREVER!!

So at the top we have Streak, this is a beautiful pink coral with a shimmer to it, in the middle is Naked, this is a really nice nude, it looks great with the chubby stick in heaping hazelnut on top. Finally at the bottom is Native a lovely nude pink its just beautiful!!

Finally my last purchase I'm going to tell you about is the 24/7 glide on eye pencil (£14.00)
I can now understand all the hype about these eyeliner, they do not come off without a fight!! There are so many colours to chose from I was mesmerised at the counter, my hand was multi coloured by the time I left! I chose first to get a black and brown so I got Perversion and Demolition. Most of the colours did have glitter in they but I wanted matte colours so there wasn't as much choice.

At the top is Demolition it was the only matte brown, but it is very nice and matte, the only downside is it does set a little dark for me however it is a good alternative to black as its still dark but will make your eye makeup look more softer. The bottom is Perversion, probably THE BEST eye pencil I've ever owned, this baby is very matte and black its striking! You can also smudge this out before it sets too which looks great for a Smokey eye!

There you go, my first ever post hope you liked it and thank you for reading it, make sure you come back for more :)
