Benefit Gals Just Wanna Have Fun Complete Makeup Kit

Saturday, 15 October 2016

This is great. When it is almost Christmas, Benefit drops these awesome Christmas gift sets! This 'Gals just wanna have fun' set was £29.50. The reason why I bought this was solely for the Hoola bronzer and I didn't want the original packaging which I find is quite bulky whereas this one I can store in my make up bag.

What the inside of the box looks includes make up tips and tricks.

Inside the kit. 

1. They're Real mascara (not my favourite mascara as I find the brush too spiky)

2. Hoola bronzer & brush

3. Benetint (for lips and cheeks, I have used this in the past but I'm not really a blush/lip stain person)

4. Gimme Brow (brown gel which enhances your brows, I like this product!)

5. x3 eye shadows and brush (Really pretty wearable shades)

Above: Gimme Brow brush (brush over your eyebrows)

I felt that this was a good buy filled with awesome products and worth the value. Plus, it is already wrapped which is always an added bonus. Only thing you can't remove is the eye shadow...perhaps I haven't tried hard enough but I don't really want to keep the packaging. I'd rather remove all the items from it and store it in my own make up bag. 

Benefit have also released various gift sets so definitely worth checking out if you are looking to treat yourself/others!

Ariana Grande - MAC Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipgloss

Monday, 8 February 2016

On 4th February, Ariana Grande released a lipstick and lipgloss by MAC Cosmetics. 
Every single penny goes to helping those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. 

So I went on my lunch break to buy both...

The lipstick costs £15.50 and the lipgloss costs £14.50. A total of £30 which is almost equivalent to the price of one Chanel lipstick. In other words, it was worth it. The lipstick is a deep matte plum colour. If you lightly dab against your lip, it is wearable in day time. If you then build up the layers, it goes quite dark so would be more suitable for night time. 

The lipgloss is a contrast from the lipstick. It doesn't tingle on your lips though like the other MAC lip glosses which I quite enjoyed but anyway, the colour is very pretty, light and has small specs of glitter. Layering this over the lipstick is great (lipliner needed!) - just don't wear this if it is a very windy day...I speak from personal experience. 

Overall, I am very happy with my buys - a very good start to February!
