It has been a crazy few weeks for me. First I decided to drop my beloved phone and smash it to pieces. That was four weeks ago and in between a holiday, my brothers wedding and spending the weekend in Kerry, my nerves were starting to kick in. Thankfully, I’ve been reunited with my phone! 🙂
Anywho, back to blogging! While I was in Spain, the fabulous Kathryn O’Neill gave me an informative and extremely helpful run through of thee best beauty and skincare products available. She was a heaven sent beauty angel who has set me on the path to purchasing amazing products.
I started with some of the items she used on me for the wedding. For my under eye area, she applied Clinques corrector concealer. It held up so well in the 40 degree heat and I didn’t re-apply it once. I purchased it in a Spanish beauty store called Primor. It was like Disneyland for beauty fans, and even better, all products were at a fraction of their high street price. I had a ball shopping up a beauty storm buying various products.
Kathryn recommended that I buy a blusher she used on me called Catrice. It is from an amazing German based cosmetic company that produce high end beauty products for a fraction of the price. I got these amazing blushers for €3.99 each. Absolute bargain!
I’ve quickly become addicted to the Catrice brand and I know that my collection of their products is going to grow and grow.
Bourjois has been a personal favourite of my for some time now. I love their blusher pots, they’re rich, give great coverage and the colours are stunning. These two blushers are part of my daily make up routine for both day and night looks.
I decided to purchase their Healthy Mix Serum and foundation while I was in Spain. It is such a lightweight mixture and again, it only cost me €13.95 per bottle. I love it when you find cosmetic brands that offer you a great beauty product that is as good as the high end brands but with a budget friendly price.
The gel foundation is designed to provide you with 16hr coverage that will even out and give your skin a glow.
I managed to shop up quite a storm while I was in Nerja. I’m going to upload more posts of the fashion and accessory purchases that I made within the next few days.
