While I was writing this post, I listened to Josephine by Danny Olliver. Try it !
In March and April, I picked up quite nice new makeup products – some come straight from Lisbon even though they\’re not from a Portuguese brand, some are my impulse purchases from M.A.C. and some I just wanted to try because the formula or colors were really interesting.
Inglot : Gel Eyeliner, Refill Lipstick & Lip Paint
In Lisbon, I found only one brand that was interesting, Quem Disse Berenice but it wasn\’t innovating or interesting enough for me (how many more liquid matte lipsticks can I get, I mean ?) but when I came across Inglot, boy, that was it. Given how much less they cost in Portugal than in London or on the French website, I got all that I was interested in. First, I got 10 of their Gel Eyeliners which are my favorite gel eyeliners ever and well, these were the ten that I didn\’t own. Technically, I still need two or three to make my collection complete but these were shades I didn\’t specifically need or want at that time. I also got myself 28 of their refill lipsticks, matte, creamy and metallic to make a nice palette – I loved the pigmentation and texture so much in the store ! Lastly, I indulged in four of their Lip Paints which are the thing that resemble lipgloss the most and I love the colors ! That\’s an innovating product (whenever lipgloss is at stake and it comes in a small pot, you know…) and I can\’t wait to take photos so I can start using it properly on everyone.
Lipgloss : L.A. Girl, NYX & M.A.C.
Then, of course, come tons of lipglosses. I\’ve had this urge for coral toned lipglosses, then for vinyl-like liquid lipsticks and I\’ve found some astounding ones ! Glazed Lip Paints from L.A. Girl are amazing products that are minty, high-shine and impacting with their high pigmentation, I\’ve gotten a NYX Slip Tease liquid lipstick that is also really beautiful and I\’ve chosen to start trying out the new B.A.E. makeup range from Hema so I\’ve gotten a cherry-scented lipgloss that looks really summery ! Then of course, I started a new collection with the M.A.C. Lipglass which just might be my new favorite lipglosses ever and some NYX Butter Gloss and Intense Butter Gloss that I\’d been advised to try over and over again.
Face & Eye : NYX, Hema & Makeup Revolution
Then come some face products – first, NYX\’s Away We Glow Foundation booster, a strong pink/purple highlighter that looks really stunning. I\’m considering getting another color later. From Hema\’s B.A.E. makeup range, I\’ve gotten two Face Gloss, one simple transparent, the other slightly glittery. Although I don\’t understand how a gloss can be only for the face, I\’m thinking that since they\’re non-sticky, I\’d love to use them on the lips and the eyes as well ! Hema has also released something called \”Eye Cream in a tube\” with four shades and I\’ve gotten the most popping one, the baby blue. These eye creams, ugh… Can\’t wait to review that for you guys. The world needs to know about them ! Last products I got ? Two eyeshadow palettes – the NYX Ultimate Electric palette that at some point in my life I hated for the redundant colors and now am crazy about and the Makeup Revolution & Tammi Tropical Carnival Palette that I reviewed right here and that is ughhh – such amazing value !
What have you guys gotten this month ? x
