I was running in the speed of light when I saw those rays of the sun shining through the clouds today to take some pictures for my blog. I just find it so much easier to shoot images with natural light instead of building up 5 different lights to get a decent amount of brightness.
A couple of days ago I made a little stop at Zara whilst I was on my way to somewhere else, mainly because I saw a striped dress online, so I wanted to see what it looked like in real life. I was not impressed with it at all, as it looked more like a shapeless bag than an actual dress, so I was kind of disappointed. In the sale section though, I found a lovely grey jumper for only 16,99 and instantly loved it. Then I picked up a few pieces of jewellery from Bershka and H&M where I also picked up a little black bag that says 'love' which I will put into my bag to keep little things like bobby pins,...
From Christmas I still had a voucher which my dad gave me to spend on cosmetics, so after picking some things I wanted, I was more than excited for them to arrive at my house. I ordered from an Austrian high end store & from beautybay.com I love beautybay, because they have a wide range of brands & no shipping fees, but they take absolute ages to ship, I already almost forgot what I actually ordered when my parcel arrived after about 16 days.
Anyway, I was beyond happy when it was finally there and I could finally try out some things that I had been lusting after for a long time, for example the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I honestly do not know how I was able to survive with this base on my lids! I wore my eyeshadow over it for an entire day (and I have been in a TV studio that day where it tends to be quite warm) and it did not crease which I was really impressed with. Also from Urban Decay I ordered an eyeshadow pencil & a lip stick in the shade Streak. I don't love it as much as Bang mainly because the colour is not as intense as I hoped it was going to be, but I still think it is a lovely lip product which I will get a lot of use out especially in spring & summer.
I am not a massive fan of blushes as I think that they mostly enhance my red areas, but when I spotted the heart shaped blush by TooFaced, it was kind of love at the first sight. The packaging is so adorable & the product looks lovely too. It contains three colours which can be either blended or used on their own.
And finally, from Benefit I ordered the Hoola Bronzer which I had been lusting after for months, but never really could justify spending my money on. I am absolutely in love with this product; my skin is really pale but this bronzer does not make it look orange or muddy. Last but not least, I ordered the Porefessional Primer. Almost every single blogger on the internet is raving about this product, so I just kind of had to get it, too. It has a flesh colour and it applies so smoothly and makes my foundation feel a lot nicer and also less heavy.
So, I need to go and continue my essay for school now, have a lovely evening! xx
