Countless times I have been reading blogs, watching YouTube videos or just wandering the internet and something pops up that makes me want to buy yet another beauty product. This happens frequently and as much as I have pretty good will power, every now and then I make a purchase that I probably don’t need. So what has the internet annoyingly encouraged me to buy? Here’s a few.
Everyone has this bronzer. It’s everywhere and so many people rave about it. I love Benefit as a brand but I do consider their products as a bit of a splurge. Admittedly I only had a couple of bronzers and one of them was less than impressive. Did I need Hoola? Maybe? But as much as the internet pop-ups and reviews were calling me to take the dive, I actually purchased the travel size. This way I could try out the product, spend less money and invest in a bigger size later down the line. Plus I really like the idea of travel size right now because I find it impossible to pack lightly and this could help reduce my makeup bag size. So instead of the £29.50, I spent £12.50 and having tried the bronzer out a few times, I think I will invest somewhere down the line. It’s the perfect bronze tone without looking unnatural.
*L’Oreal Paris Paradise Extatic Mascara
I do love a good mascara and L’Oreal knew exactly what they were doing when they used rose-gold packaging. I only picked this up yesterday so haven’t had the chance to use it, but I’m excited to see if this becomes a daily mascara. I have somehow managed to avoid all reviews thus far and will be making my own review in the next couple of weeks. First impressions, the bristles look like they can pack a punch so I’m hoping for some length.
*Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (Shade Lolita 1)
The internet isn’t fully to blame here. It just gave me that tiny budge. I have had my eye on the Kat Von D lipsticks since trying the Lock-It Liquid foundation as mentioned here. I loved this foundation and knew that lipsticks would be a must try. I have a fair few things to say about this lipstick so keep an eye out for a review if you want to know more.
*Benefit Pore Professional
Another Benefit product that I debated about buying for the best part of a year. I have seen tons of praise for this primer but for £26.00? I decided yet again to pick up the travel size and I’m going to be completely honest and say that for £10.50 (which I feel is still alot of money) I was so disappointed with the size. Yes I knew it would be small but this bottle size is ridiculous! I’l pay more attention to the mls next time but wow.. still not over it. As for the formula, I’m still 50/50 so I will continue to try it out.
