There’s something mysteriously alluring about imported makeup. I guess that’s why I read a lot about people in other countries lemming over things like Wet’n'Wild and NYX…granted…that should have probably been my first clue.
Topshop is (from what I gather) the UK equivalent of Forever21 in its relatively low cost (reaaaaaaaaally relatively) and frequent designer “inspired” pieces. They also have their own makeup line, which i’ve been wanting to try out forever. I had a 10% off coupon and they were having some sort of free shipping offer for Memorial Day, so I mini hauled. Here’s the first of the three I purchased, Infrared.
If there’s one thing (besides orange lipsticks) that I think is a good idea on the beauty/makeup world – it’s samples. Especially the kind you can use more than once. I actually purchased Benefit’s One Prime Day kit several months ago. The (not currently in stock) $10USD kit contained a .25 oz Mini of That Gal and the POREfessional respectively and a .9oz Stay Don’t Stray. I’m a bit late for others to take advantage of this sample kit, but having used up all the samples I can now report on the three products contained within. Here’s the first: the POREfessional.
I don’t think I ever would have purchased this lipstick if it weren’t for Lilit of Makeup and Macaroons. She’s given Impassioned so much love that it’s contagious! Until recently, I didn’t particularly care for pink lipsticks. But lately, my collection of them has been growing. This was the first of the latest of my bright pink purchases.
This was another one of my first purchases post-ban. I love trying out new brands and when Edward Bess offerings came out I was anxious to try them out. Of course, the “Golden Coral” colored Quad caught my eye and it was in my shopping cart pretty quickly. Here are my thoughts…
Beauty.com recently started offering most OCC Lip Tars in their lineup. However, before that they also offered two sets a Brights and a Neutral/Natural set (the neutral set has since been discontinued). The sets consisted of 5 Lip Tars (normally $14 USD Each) and OCC’s Precision Lip Brush ($18 USD alone) for $49.50 USD. Back in late April I jumped on this deal – I had a few Drugstore.com Dollars and a discount promo code available so the whole set ended up costing me a piddly $29.44!! How’s that for a deal?
