Thoughts: Makeup Haul

Over the year I have become more and more obsessed with makeup. I recently visited the Mecca Maxima pop-up store at Chadstone, and thought I would share with you all what I brought…

Too Faced Born this Way Absolute Perfection Foundation (Shade: Porcelain)

Foundation

Thoughts…

I was recently in desperate need of a foundation. I decided that I wanted to try something new, and chose this one. I like the texture of this foundation, and the way in which it covers all redness and any blemishes. It does however have quite a strong yellow colour to it, but nevertheless it works well for my skin.

Too Faced Brow Envy Brow Shaping & Defining Kit

Brows

Thoughts…

This brow kit has changed my eyebrow game for the better. This kit is definitely value for money, and the palette contains in it a setting wax, highlighter, and both blonde and brunette eyebrow shades. It also comes with the appropriate makeup tools – tweezers, an angled brush and a mini spooly. If your brows need saving, I strongly recommend this set!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Mini (Oil-free)

Primer

Thoughts…

Before I tried this particular primer, I had used Stila’s famous ‘One Step Correct’. While I love the silky smooth texture of the Smashbox primer, I find that it does not assist with redness and brightness like Stila’s product.

Mecca Cosmetica ‘Brush With Success’ Cosmetic Brush Cleaner

Mecca

Thoughts…

I have never purchased a brush cleaner prior to this one as I was told to wash makeup brushes with shampoo. Though I still continue to do this, I find that using Mecca’s brush cleaner between washes ensures that my brushes are not holding an excess of bacteria and clogging up my pores.

I love experimenting with different makeup products and looks. Although I will never be an expert, thanks to online tutorials and attending workshops, I am becoming more confident in applying makeup!

What are your favourite beauty products? I would love to know!

P.S. I would like to stress that while some of these products may be suited for me, they might not work for you (and vice versa). Also, all of the pictures above have been taken by me and should be credited if used.
