Boxing day make-up haul

Boxing day is one of my favourite holidays (and yes I consider it a holiday haha). All I wanted was to buy a new coat and new shade of lippies. And guess what? I was not able to buy a coat! I bought make up products instead. I find make-up products a bit pricey and I only get to buy new ones on days like my birthday and boxing day so I thought.. my coats are still in good shape lol.

As what I’ve said a while ago, I don’t get to buy beauty products that much, but when I do, I splurge. Because of excitement, I immediately tried some of the products as soon as I got home which I’m glad to share with you!
LA Express Beauty brush set (Urban Behaviour)

I haven’t used any kind of oval brush before that’s why I was a little confused on how to use it. Thank God for Youtube tutorials!!! A single brush would normally cost me about $10-$25 so spending $20 for this set is a sweet deal. I love that it has brushes for foundation, blush, concealer, face blender and even for eye shadow. To my surprise, it’s pretty easy to use and blends well too!

I know you might say that’s too much brushes and quite frankly, I haven’t tried these yet.ย  However, I fell in love on the fact that it’s pink and it has glitters lol. Also, it was only the brush set was only $15 so I took it.

 

Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour (NYX)

I love NYX for having the best products at a very affordable price. I’ve been using this brow contour set ever since and I don’t think I’d stop. It makes my brows look natural plus it also include a highlighter which makes your brows on fleek all the time

 

NYX lip cream: Cannes and Budapest shades

These are actually my favorite shades: Cannes (left) and Budapest (right) as these are part of my everyday look. In fact, I used the Budapest shade on my wedding day. I totally recommend these shades especially if you’re tan like me. I don’t find it long lasting enough though so make sure you allot some time to retouch!
NYX Lip cream set and Liquid Suede (Metallic Matte)

So the lip cream set are on sale for 50% off! It consists of Copenhagen, Havana and Vancouver shades. For the longest time, I’ve been using the classy red shade for my everyday look. Don’t get me wrong, it looks very sophisticated but since I’ve used it a lot before, I find it a little dull now. That’s why whenever I wanted to have red lips, darker shades are my go to. Copenhagen is my favourite shade on this set because the colour is a mix of brown and burgundy. I feel like this shade is perfect for a modern and independent woman, classy with a bit of an attitude ๐Ÿ˜‰ Vancouver is also a good shade, it has a combination of brown and purple, I can say that it emphasize my skin tone even more which is a good thing especially on winter. Havana, the blue-ish/purple-ish one, is something I know I won’t use as an everyday shade but I’ll definitely use it for special occasions.
Last but not the least, I would like to let you know how much I ADORE these Liquid Suede Metallic Matte from NYX (shades of Modern Maven and Pure Society). First of, they are long lasting. To be fair, I haven’t tried it yet for the whole day but I had a hard time removing it. Second, these lippies are also glittery; definitely a show stopper. I think these lippies are perfect for girls who loves to party or even for professionals who does not have time to retouch. I only spent $10 for each shade and I couldn’t be any happier.

Were you able to shop this boxing day? Let me know what you got by commenting on the section below ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyways, Awesome post! I’ve been lookin for a better brow contour so I’ll check out the NYX one ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Wow! It looks like you had great success with your Boxing Day shopping, and maybe had a lot of fun too. I didn’t make it out to the stores, but I did do a bit of online shopping. I got myself a new washing machine (the old one was making laundry even worse than it already is), so not nearly as exciting as your haul. I LOVE the brushes with the sparkles and glitter in the handle – so much fun.

    1. Thanks Nicole. But buying a new washing machine is exciting too and more useful in the long run ๐Ÿ™‚ I am trying to go furniture shopping as well before this week ends and hopefully I can still get a good deal. โค
