Gift Card Shopping

Hi everyone!
For my birthday and Christmas I got gift cards at my favorite makeup store from Martin’s parents. Since I was forbidden to buy more makeup between my birthday and Christmas, I saved them both to spend during the sales, and that was a great move! During two days after Christmas they had 20% off ALL makeup! I decided to order online, since they had more brands there in the stores I had time to visit. Since I got quite a lot of makeup for Christmas, and will be getting a whole lot in my “school bag” in just a few weeks, I wanted to go for some high end brands instead of s big quantity for the money. The parcel arrived with the mail today!

Kicks Januari

Just have a look at all the goodies above, before we move on to the close ups!

Mac Powder

First out is a translucent Prep+Prime powder from Mac. I haven’t tried any products from Mac yet, since they are quite expensive here, and I really needed a new powder. This had gotten good reviews on the store’s page, so I decided to try it out.

 

Mac Vanilla Sketch Velvet

Of course I also had to try out their eyeshadows. If I like them I will buy more next time I go to USA. Major difference in price! I got them in the colours Skecth Velvet and Vanilla. I wanted to go for one basic, and one coloured. I had a really hard time deciding on the colour, so I actually thought I had ordered another one, but Sketch Velvet does look really nice so I’m not at all disappointed with this one.

Smashbox Prism

Another brand I’ve been eager to try is Smashbox. Here I went for a highlighter in the colour Prism. It’s a very light pink, but very pigmented, so I think it would do good as a summer blush too, for a very light and fresh look.

 

Michael Kors Bronzer

 

 

Last, but not least, I went for the Michael Kors Bronzer in Glow. My sister had wished for this one for Christmas, and got it from our mother. As soon as I saw it I realized I needed to have it as well. It doesn’t only look beautiful, it smells fantastic too. Pure luxury!

Have you tried any of these products? I would love to hear your thoughts!
