|This is my second haul so far... I should stop now...|
It's the only time I go a little gaga and buy without testing...a very silly thing to do, as I well know. I usually do test (even crazy sales goods) if testers are available. #new_years_resolution: if a tester is not available, don't buy it! Brands should ensure that testers are always available. I've learnt my lesson the hard way...again. But you know how it is: something happens in my brain when I see that red sticker telling me that I am about to encounter a massive bargain...it's my "Rosebud".
I am pretty *smiles* happy about my overall haul...and will be going back for more...as soon as they restock the shelves!
|Revlon Photoready Bronzer gives light bronzed look; not too pigmented|
|Revlon Cream Eye Shadow palette|
The Revlon Cream Eye Shadow Palette will end up being used as eye bases mostly. And I have a feeling they will crease. But if I'm there to touch up all the time, it won't really matter. If you plan on wearing these personally I would insist on an eye makeup base and constant makeup checks in the bathroom! These cream shadows are fun and perfect for very youthful skin, and I love the shades, which can work as sheer or bolder and thicker dramatic looks.
Big fat shadow pencils are so much fun to use: it's like being in kindergarten all over again! So whenever I find shades and textures I like, then it is just so easy to add them to my basket. I've been wanting to try the Smudge line for a while now, and the sale at Clicks gave me a righteous opportunity. Love it! And will be stocking up on plenty more of these Smudge babies. The texture is ideal and easy on the skin. Blendability of these shadow pencils make them a must in any kit; and the shades are a good match for most skin tones.
Another bargain were the Revlon nail varnishes. I especially adore the #310 Essence colour, which is a shade of green that brings in tones of grey and blue but is definitely green... This is such a great wintery colour, and ideal for a Poison Ivy look! And then I found two standards for beauty and lifestyle shoots: #68 Pink Chiffon and #85 Peach Nectar, which will give just that little bit of a manicured look in one sheer coat.
I still have a few other buys on my list...and the sales are still on!
