Green lips

Small collective Zalando haul

I purchased a few things from Zalando over the past month or so that I thought I would share with you in this little collective haul.

Beige flettede kitten heel sandaler - Stradivarius

I’d been wanting these cute heels from Stradivarius since I first saw them, but they kept selling out in this beige colour (they also came in light green and light blue, but I’m not sure if they’re still available). Suddenly they were back in stock and I managed to get them. I can imagine wearing them with so many cute summer outfits.

Hvide Air Force 1 m. regnbuefarvet + lilla og neongule detaljer - Nike

And on to another pair of shoes, and it was love at first sight with these. These Nike Air Force 1’s has my name written all over them; they have rainbow details and purple details, so they were pretty much made for me.

Beige stråtaske formet som muslingeskal - Topshop

I’ve been wanting a straw bag since last summer, and I finally found the one for me; this adorable shell shaped one for Topshop. I’m sure it’s going to be the perfect summer bag.

And lastly, I purchased the MAC Rose-Gilded eyeshadow palette. I hadn’t really heard anything about this palette, but I don’t think it was available in Scandinavia (maybe not anywhere else in Europe either) when it launched. I’ll be talking more about this palette in an upcoming post, but I can reveal that it is incredible.

Enjoying dark neutrals

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m really enjoying doing neutral make-up looks these days. I especially enjoy using darker neutral shades like I did for this make-up look.

First impressions: e.l.f. 16HR Camo concealer

DSC_0523

I don’t think I ever featured the e.l.f. 16HR Camo concealer in any haul, so instead I decided to do this first impressions post about it.

First impressions

I got the shade Fair Rose, which is not the best colour match for my skin, but the shade selection at my local supermarket was very limited, and this shade seemed to be the best choice. Even though the colour is a little light and probably has the wrong undertone, I still think I made it work. The concealer has a large doe foot applicator, which I really enjoy in a concealer; it makes the product quick and easy to apply. The product blended out nicely and I liked the texture of it. It almost sets by itself, so only very little powder is needed (though I’m not wearing powder in the picture). The coverage is good, but it’s not as great as I thought it would be. It’s supposed to be a full coverage concealer, and though it looks very nice in the picture, I do wish that it had a little more coverage. I didn’t get to wear the concealer for 16 hours, but I wore it for 11 hours, and it still looked nice right before I removed it; it hadn’t creased. My feelings about this concealer is pretty much down the middle of the road; I do like it, but I’ve tried concealers that I like more.

Glowy/dewy and light

DSC_0557DSC_0554

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I decided to go for quite a glowy/dewy and light look, apart from the bright red lip of course (which was supposed to be matte, it even says so on the actual lipstick, but it’s definitely not).

(Base: primers – Maybelline Face Studio Prime Pore Minimizing Primer + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealers – MAC Pro Longwear concealer (shade: NC20) + L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer + Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless pressed powder (shade: 90 Translucent). Face make-up: bronzer – Maybelline City Bronzer in 100 Light Cool, blusher – MAC Glow Play blush in Grand, highlighter – MAC Cream Colour Base (shade: Pearl). Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Jeffree Star Thirsty palette (shades: Parched + Filthy Rich) + Juvia’s Place The Magic Mini palette (shade: Kesi) + MAC Nylon eyeshadow, mascara – L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara, eyeliner – Sephora Long lasting kohl pencil in 07 Infinite beige. Eyebrows: Benefit Gimme Brow volumizing brow gel in 03 Medium + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: MUA Intense Colour lipliner in Red Drama + Sephora Collection #Lipstories x Barbie lipstick in 26 Kick It!)

Brighter than planned

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The eye make-up turned out a little brighter than what I’d initially planned, but I decided to just roll with it, and I think it’s really pretty.

New MAC LE collections; Bronzing & Mosaic Masterpiece

DSC_0600

MAC recently launched two new limited edition collections, and I purchased a few items from each collection (obviously). The collections are the Bronzing collection (bronze packaging) and the Mosaic Masterpiece collection (blue packaging).

DSC_0608

The first product I got from the Bronzing collection is the Stobe Face Glaze in the shade Let’s Make Waves. I don’t know if MAC has come out with this product before this collection, but I hadn’t seen it before. I actually wore it for the first time today, and it is such a unique product. It looks wet on the skin, but at the same time it’s super glowy, and it’s absolutely stunning! I’m really excited about this product, and I think it should become a part of MAC’s permanent collection.

I also got one of the bronzers from the collection. It’s called a Radiant Matte bronzing powder, and I got the lightest shade in Beige-ing Beauty. It’s a very pigmented powder, so a little goes a long way. The shade is really pretty, and I think it looks very nice on the skin.

And of course I had to get one of the lipsticks. I chose the shade Cote D’Amour which is a bright fuchsia shade in the amplified finish.

From the Mosaic Masterpiece collection I had to get the Extra Dimension skinfinish. I mean, look at the packaging and the pattern in the actual powder. Gorgeous! The shade is Whisper of Gilt which is a cult favourite that I didn’t already own.

And of course I had to get a lipstick from this collection as well. This is in the shade Tendercotta and it has a matte finish. I have already worn this, and I love it. It’s pretty much the perfect shade of brown for a lipstick in my opinion.
