Make-Up Haul

SHOPPING HAUL :D Yay! I picked some stuff up when I was shopping with my best friends. I don't think you can get these products anymore, they're old limited editions or discontinued items. That's why I got all these products for a really good price.

The first item I'm going to show you is the essence crystalliced liquid highlighter. I've been obsessed with highlighters lately, and I knew this highlighter came out a few months ago and I was disappointed I didn't pick it up when it was still in store, so I was really happy to see they put it back in the shelves. When applied to your face it will leave you with a beautiful shine, not glittery at all. You could also mix it with your moisturizer for a dewy finish. Under the lid is a pump, so no bacteria will be transferred into the product. This highlighter only costed me €1!

The next product is the Maybelline Express Finish 50 Second Nail Color in #899 Timely Turquoise. I really like this nailpolish because it dries really fast! I wasn't expecting this at all. It's a metallic turquoise color, which I really like. You'll need about 2-3 coats for the color to really show up. This costed me €2,49. I'm sorry for my terrible short nails, they always break off at work so I had to trim them all. :(

These are the L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets lipglosses. The texture is really thick, which makes the lipgloss a bit sticky. But these have great pigmentation, so that makes up for the stickiness! I also like applying these on my cheeks as a blush. These costed me €2,49 individually. Here you can see the glosses applied to my lips.
The pink gloss in #840
The red gloss in #651
This is the L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets eyeliner in #500 White. It's really creamy, so that makes it easy to apply. I always use a white eyeliner on my waterline because it makes your eyes look bigger and brighter! 

The last thing is the Maybelline MNY Eyeshadow in #709. I will be using this eyeshadow everyday from now on! This shadow is perfect for every day. I always wear a golden/pearly/shimmery eyeshadows, and since I'm running low on my other one this is going to be a perfect replacement!

Thanks for reading. See you next time! :)
