The amount of products I see and hear about from Instagram and Youtube is alot! Also, my makeup collection is also growing at an unprecedented rate, as the ‘new’ foundation or ‘new’ highlighter pops on my screen. I need help seriously!!!!
Now, I love the UK. I was born and bred here, and I will always be a Sauf’ London girl at heart, even whilst I try to get rid of the blasted accent! However, just sometimes I wish I lived in the US. Yes, I know and I am fully aware of the struggles that people of colour face there…well everywhere really. However, on just a purely superficial level, I love the makeup that is available in the US. They have more colours, shades and products suited for my skin tone, for medium-dark skin tones. Something we are lacking in the UK.
JUVIA’S PLACE EYESHADOWS
I want all the palettes – Nubian 1, Nubian 2, and the new Masquerade palette. Juvia’s Place is a black owned company and is making waves in the beauty industry with their highly pigmented eyeshadows. There has been some controversy regarding this company lately, mainly about their customer service, but I still want to try these palettes because I am on the hunt for a good palette.
DOSE OF COLOURS LIQUID LIPSTICKS
I really want to try these liquid lipsticks. They seem really long lasting and comfortable on your lips so why not? Spoken like a true lipstick addict!
COLOURPOP ULTRA METALLIC LIQUID LIPSTICKS
There is so much hype around metallic lipsticks, but I just don’t know…will it suit me? I have full lips and I am not sure how metallic lipsticks will look on me. However, I really want to try these lipsticks…just because they are Colourpop and are super cheap! Who can beat $6 for liquid lipsticks? No one.
KAT VON D LIQUID LIPSTICKS
Kat Von D was one of the first cosmetic companies to start this liquid lipstick craze. I have heard that the formula of her matte liquid lipsticks is one of the best out there. They are matte but not drying. They are apparently really comfortable on the lips so I would love to try these out.
MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE + PORELESS FOUNDATION
I love a good affordable drugstore foundation…who doesn’t?! We have got to save those coins! I have heard and read some good reviews about this foundation. I love the fact that they have medium to dark shades available. It has great coverage and is truly matte.
