After a good month of not spending any money on makeup in January, February was a little spendy. (To say the least) I also placed a ColourPop order, but that’s getting its own post. Well that’s the plan. In this post, I’ll be going through what I got from Beauty Bay and Kiko.
We’ll start off with Beauty Bay, as that order arrived first.
Face Halo | The Modern Makeup Remover
I’ve been seeing these around for a little while and I love the idea. These pads remove makeup and can be washed up to 200 times. They eliminate the need for cotton pads which is huge! I go through cotton pads like they’re going out of fashion. I’m forever needing to go to Boots and stock up. Which obviously isn’t great, as they aren’t brill for the environment. With these you’re supposed to add water and wipe away. I’m looking forward to giving these a go and hopefully they live up to the hype!
Beauty Bay | EYN Nude Shimmer 9 Colour Palette
As soon as I knew Beauty Bay were doing Nude palettes I knew I needed to try something. I love a basic palette, and nude shades are my favourite, so of course this went straight into my basket. These palettes went into early access with Tribe, and of course I was all over it. I was a little undecided on which one to go for, but I ended up with the shimmer palette. Shimmers are my favourite, and as this was only £8 I don’t mind pairing it with other palettes. I have an eyeshadow palette problem anyway, so it’s not like I’m lacking in choices.
Now onto Kiko! I placed this order for the bronzer, as there isn’t a Kiko near me and I really wanted to pick this bronzer up. The delivery however is very expensive. I wasn’t prepared to spend £6.90 on delivery when I could spend £10.10 on products for free shipping. I know that’s how they get you to spend more money, but for a £3.20 difference I’m happy.
Kiko | Standout Volume Mascara
I’ve heard some good things about the Kiko mascaras so in the end I decided to go for this one. This mascara claims to add volume for full prominent lashes. The formula also contains Tahitian monoi extracts and jojoba oil, which I didn’t know when I purchased it, so it should nourish the lashes too. It’s a fibre brush, as I know some people have a preference.
Kiko | Smart Fusion Lipstick 404 Rosy Biscuit
At first I struggled to pick out something I liked and then I remembered reading this post from Louise. I loved the look of the lipstick, so decided to pick it up myself. Rosy Biscuit looks like a warm peach nude, which will be perfect for everyday wear. These lipsticks don’t last all day, due to the creamy comfortable formula, but for £3.99 it’s okay.
Kiko | Waterflower Magic Bronzer 01 Warm Honey
As soon as I saw this it went straight into my basket. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Kiko bronzers and this one looks absolutely gorgeous. It’s in the prettiest baby pink packaging and inside the compact is the bronzer. The only thing that puts me off is the weird smell, it says it’s delicately scented with Vanilla, but it’s a little strong and weird smelling. It’s a matte powder and looks like the perfect shade.
I was just about to finish with: ‘Well that’s everything!’ Forgetting the ColourPop order which I will be featuring when it arrives. I guess it’s everything for this post though!
Have you got your eye any new makeup?
