So I may have brought some makeup…

Laying out the makeup I brought from Italy I didn’t quite realize how much I had brought – despite this I don’t regret it, everything I bought I will use (or already am using) and love! so let’s get along with my purchases! I had to take a trip to Duty-free whilst waiting for the flight and I finally purchased Velvet Teddy! despite being unsure whether it suited me at first I’e grown to really like it and wear it quite a lot! I also brought the Nars Laguna bronzer, a much loved Nars cult product, this was a bronzer I just had to buy! I was lusting for this for such a long time and it hasn’t disappointed! A full post on this should be up soon!

I definitely wasn’t planning on going into KIKO, so was kind of unaware what to buy when I went there. There wasn’t anything I knew I wanted to try and I didn’t want to take a risk of being a bold eyeliner if I didn’t know what the formula was like (this is when I was actually thinking slightly logically). However I ended up purchasing some things I really like! KIKO is so much cheaper in Italy as it is an Italian brand, however I definitely want to purchase some of the things I bought again when I run out – especially the lip liner! The things I brought were the glamorous eye pencil in 404, a gorgeous plum shade, one which I think will be great for doing grungy eye looks (and it’s waterproof which will be great for summer). A similar eye pencil that is definitely browner is the smart eye pencil in 802. It’s not waterproof however I fell in love with the shade and I think that it would be great for more everyday looks, especially blended out. A lip liner that I absolutely love is the smart lip pencil in 712, a darkish mauve pink. I love this under MAC’s please me, as although it’s slightly darker they just look gorgeous together. The formula is so creamy and the longevity is great, if i’m ever near a KIKO i’ll definitely be buying more of them! I also got a lip balm purely for the scent (it’s like artificial apricots) but the sheer colour it gives is also cute as well. A full post on these products will be up soon!

Lastly, I couldn’t not go into Sephora. It was my first time in one and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. Despite not having loads of money to buy everything I saw, I managed to pick up a couple of gems that come in the form of the Sephora lip creams. They’re absolutely gorgeous and the formula is great! I have to say these have to be up there with some of my favourite lip products (and trust me, i try a lot). Their only downfall I would say is the shade range, a lot of them are bold, garish colours that I just do not wear. These ones in ‘marvelous mauve’ and ‘infinite rose’ are my new loves though. Prettiness overload.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my new purchases from Italia and look out for some photos from the trip up on the blog Thursday!

    Great post, you bought so many lovely things! I really want to try Velvet Teddy as it looks like such a gorgeous lipstick shade. I also like the look of the Kiko make up you bought, as I've only tried lipsticks from there before. x

    Thanks! Velvet teddy is a lipstick that needs getting used to, but I love it! x
