Barcelona Make Up Haul

Hello beauties :)

Three weeks ago, my friends and I went to Barcelona. We had the most wonderful time, sadly we only stayed there for a couple of days, however I still managed to fit time for shopping and visit some sites. It was honestly the most memorable holiday I've ever experienced.

Here are some photos for those who are interested:

Sagrada Família
Parc Guell

This is the make up I bought from Spain. Reviews and swatches shall be posted in the future. Stay tuned!

My most favourite item in this bunch is the Naked 1 Palette from Urban Decay. It was about 35euro. It has 12 super pigmented shadows along with a Primer Potion and Shader Brush

My first MAC lipstick in the Shade Rebel. On the MAC website it is described as a Midtonal crem plum. 

Also bought my first MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters.

To go with Rebel lipstick, I picked a Cargo Lipgloss in Paris.

I've been eyeing Urban Decay pencils for long time. The lip pencil I bought is a pinkish-nude lip pencil in heavy. On the other hand, the eyepencil is a golden brown in Baked.

My most favourite makeup item is mascara. I enjoy trying new ones, especially affordable ones since I can buy several at a time. 

NYC volumizing mascara show time in Carbon & NYC Curling brush mascara city curls in Black.

While I was browsing through SEPHORA I saw, some duos for 3 euros. I went with a neutral duo in Hot Brown N03 and a pink dup in Gorgeuos pink N04.

 From KIKO I bought a matte highlight eyeshadow single in 130 and a colour sphere in shade 04. I also couldn't resist their soft light powder, mainly a soft shimmer highlighter in 04.

Maybelline, one of my favourite drugstore brand recently launched their 24hr colour tattoo. I couldn't pass this up and picked the colour On and On Bronze.

Similar to the previous cream eyeshadow I picked up an Astra waterproof eyeshadow in pink. It is very similar to Rubeneque Painpot by MAC.

Take care,
