Only 3 items in this Beauty Bay online shopping trip that I made on Friday. There’s one rather large and exciting item within it I will admit! This month I had planned a no-ban for a trip abroad at the end of the month for a hen party which I hope might involve me being able to quickly nip into a Sephora. To be honest on the research I’ve done on the lines stocked in the Sephora’s other than picking up another of my Kat Von D Foundations if I can there’s nothing I actually want to get my hands on – so treated myself to a palette I’ve been eyeing.
Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap – £11.95
In my last Beauty Bay order in May I received this as a sample, whilst using it my skin had been literally the best it had ever been and since I’ve ran out it’s breakout central. It’s either a complete coincidence or this is skin magic. I’ll report back in full at a later date if it instantly gets my skin back to as glowing as it was, as I’m thinking of doing my current skincare routine but I have already posted a review of my sample here.
Makeup Geek Mai Thai Eyeshadow Pan – £4.95
I picked up my first Makeup Geek eyeshadows in May and have been absolutely loving them so far. At the moment I’m really gravitating towards peachy and pink shades. There’s one shade called I’m Peachless that I got which I loved, a peach duochrome and this is like it’s the big sister to it – pink with peach duochrome which I had my eye on from the moment I got I’m Peachless!
Violet Voss Drenched Metal Palette – £34.50
Saving the star of the show ’til last – Violet Voss has been making waves on my blog feed for a while and when I started looking into the few palettes they did I was flawed, I can totally see why they have a cult like following. The only one on stock on Beauty Bay was the Drenched Metal palette, but they also have a more neutral one called the Holy Grail which seems to be constantly out of stock – but I could easily be tempted by in future. I like that this has a good chunk of neutral shades with a few pretty pops of colour too! I’d like to think I can film a first impression on this with swatches this weekend! I’m dying to swatch and use it now but would love to caption my expression on camera as I think they’re going to be pretty special!
Sidenote – Makeup Geek Mai Thai is a pretty dead on dupe for Violet Voss Confession – typical!
Have you tried anything that I’ve listed here – I’d love to know your thoughts especially if you’ve tried anything from Violet Voss!
