Spring haul


Over the past few days I did some spring-appropriate make-up shopping!
Here's what I got:


Mac pro eye makeup remover: I opted for this water-based solution, since my previous dual-phase remover by Bourjois made my eyelashes fall in triplets! AND it caused me some nasty milia spots...

TBS Moisture Foundation SPF 15: I couldn't tolerate any longer my oil-free foundation by TBS, so it was a good chance to try out a different formula. This one promises light to medium coverage with a dewy finish. We shall se how it performs on my combination skin ;)

Radiant lip pencil in 06-Salmon: I'm in LOVE with this shade! A bright lemonade pink, that's how I would describe it- not exactly coral, not thoroughly pink... Am I making any sense here? I pair it with Elf's Hypershine gloss on top and it instantly brighens up my complexion! Oh, and it glides beautifully on the lips. I highly recommend it!

TBS Metallic eye definer in Glowing Amethyst: I was partly dissapointed in this eye pencil; the colour is gorgeous but sadly it doesn't show up on the waterline, if worn alone. However, I can make it work on top of a black kohl pencil.

TBS Baked eye colour in Jade: these two shades are a combination of green with blue hues and let me tell you, if you're brown eyed like me, these colours are bound to make your eyes pop! I can see myself using it a lot during summer...

Have you done any spring make-up shopping recently?

Oh and by the way, does anyone know whether Mac skincare items are eligible for the Back-2-Mac programme?

  2. I had a baked eyeshadow from tbs same colour has yours but it does not last on me even using a primer. I exchange it with a friend for a blush of the same collection in coral and is gorgeus a bit sheer but buildable the colour.love the blush

  3. @andreana, thanks, that's great news!
    I love the colour of Viva cindy but that LE thing puts me off :(

    @Beauty shades, oh no, really? That's bad! I only wore it once and it did crease- but then again, the primer I'm currently using is not that great at keeping eyeshadows in place. I must test this duo with a good primer...

  4. oh definitely do a review on the MAC eye makeup remover, please! i'm in search for the right eye make up remover. i'm currently using a dual phase remover by sephora (a free sample). it's the first time using a dual phase.

  5. Oh don't worry, I'll do a proper review ;)

    Personally speaking, so far I've had bad luck with those dual-phased formulas... I'm still in search of a HG eye make-up remover!

  10. @λειντι ντι, α δεν το έχω δοκιμάσει ακόμα με nudes- ουυ, φαντάζομαι ότι θα προκύπτει ένα milky coral χρώμα, καλό!!!

    @dimitra, ναι κι εγώ βαρέθηκα τα oil-free foundations! Eίπα να δοκιμάσω κάτι διαφορετικό, μετά από το πρόσφατο hype των αντίστοιχων Revlon Photoready ή Mac Face&Body ;)
