European Products

A Big hello to everyone!  I’m back and ready to share some products I purchased when I was in Europe.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy!! 

I am a false eyelash fanatic and when I found these in London, I knew they had me written all over them.  I love the look of the packaging.  Eyelure 65 Years Vintage Style Celebration Lashes. They look so cool and Retro.  I can’t wait for Halloween because I’m going as a sixties retro Londoner girl and I’m definitely wearing these lashes.
I love the MUA products, and the prices are amazing!  I’m so impressed with the eye shadow palette. It reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but a hundred times cheaper.  It really feels high end.
The Power Point Tint and Balm reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters.  It goes on smooth and the shine is gorgeous.  Love the eye shadow I choose.  Great for a smokey eye.   The blush reminds me of Nars.  It stays on all day and I believe I only paid one pound for it.  You cannot beat those prices. 

When I saw the Gosh eye shadow palette, I knew I had to buy it.  It reminded me of color by numbers, but the canvas are the eyes.  You can use it in the 1,2,3,4, sequence or as singles.  Just have fun with it.

I also had to pick the Gosh lipstick in Kitten Pink.  How cute is that?  I love kittens and Pink.  It’s a match made in Heaven.  

No. 7 knows how to create lipsticks, and colors, but of course I went for the Mischief and Love Red.  My go to colors are pink and red.  It’s my thing.  I love the texture.  So smooth, soft, and silky.  My only warning, be careful when you're wearing the Love Red and eating a sandwich.  With that being said, I highly recommend. 

I'm totally loving the No. 7 products. I really like No.7 Beautifully Matte Foundation.  It’s great for Normal/Oily skin.  I'm definitely more oily that normal, so it’s perfect for me, but on the other hand my sister has dry skin and it was just way too matte for her, so if you have dry skin, definitely use a moisturizer or just steer clear.  I should have purchased a lighter color, but I combine it with a lighter foundation.  I love the coverage, especially when you get those pesky zits.

Last but never least the No. 7 in Twilight.  Same name as the movie, but things go smoother with this palette.  I swear you cannot go wrong with these colors.

It’s Bourjois time!  And the eyes have it.  I was shopping at a mall in Belgium when these little beauties caught my eye.  All of the colors in this palette have some shimmer/frost to them.  I highly recommend. 

I’m pretty picky when in comes to eyeliners.  I like my eyeliner to last all day.  I usually use Revlon’s Colorstay and Stilla.  They’re amazing. That being said, I was surprised that I did so well with the Kohl & Contour shadow & light. I like the smooth glide to this pencil. 

The Bourjois Fan-Tastic Volume Mascara definitely makes  lashes thicker versus longer.  If you naturally have long lashes this one would be good for you, but if you don’t, you’ll have thick but not long. 

Last but never least.  I was at Heathrow waiting for my flight home.  I love buying magazines in London, because they always enclose goodies.  I have t-shirts, sunglasses, perfume, totes, mascara, lipstick and this list goes on.  I've been dying to try the Ciate Caviar polish, but I knew it wouldn’t last because I wash my hands a lot, so when it was inside Marie Claire it was a win win situation.  A fashion magazine and Ciate.  It looked great, but it did only last 24 hours.  I think it would have lasted longer on someone not as compulsive.  I was just happy to finally try it.

I hope you enjoyed my Blog and don’t forget to leave a comment.  Thanks!!
