It seems like years since I did a beauty-related post. I was thinking of gradually phasing them out, as I am always doing the same thing when it comes to makeup (black winged eyeliner, nude lip) – but I picked up a few pieces in Japan that I am absolutely loving, and have been dying to share!
I clearly couldn’t leave this liquid eyeliner behind in the drugstore, especially given the fact that at one point, I owned all of the Sailor Moon baton wand things. I have really been loving this eyeliner – it’s well pigmented, and the brush means that depending on the angle, it can be as thick or as thin as I want it to be. Unfortunately I picked this one up in Japan, but I’ve managed to find one that delivers to the UK here.
I’ve definitely mentioned this in a previous post, but my boyfriend recently repurchased me this perfume as part of my Christmas present and I love it. It smells like roses, freesia, and has a touch of tobacco too, which makes it so unusual – and it looks lovely on my dressing table!
This kit makes any nail polish into a gel polish, which is so great, as I don’t want to have to buy a whole load of other colours! While it isn’t as long lasting as the real thing, it definitely adds another week to my manicure – and as chipped nails are my pet peeve, anything that makes it more durable is a winner in my book.
As someone with yellow-toned skin, this Time Secret mineral UV powder has been wonderful, especially over foundation. It feels light, and has great coverage without being cakey. Again, this is another one I picked up in Tokyo, but you might be able to find it at Rakuten.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24-hour Eyeshadow
I love the Colour Tattoo eyeshadows – they last so long, and both Timeless Black and Chocolate Suede are so dark and pigmented, but really wearable. I’ve tried some cream eyeshadows from Mac and other higher-end brands, but I actually think these are better – and for £4.99 each you can’t beat them in terms of value.
Ever since I first tried them in October, I’ve been obsessed with eyelash extensions – mostly because they save so much time in the mornings (and anything that will give me an extra 20 minutes of shut-eye, I’m in favour of). My last ones lasted three months, as I didn’t wear any eyeshadow and took good care of them – my current ones I’ve had on for a month now, and I’ve received so many compliments on them that I definitely recommend trying them at least once! I’ve been keeping an eye out for good deals, but I’m definitely a fan – I’m wearing them in the photo below.
