For years now I have been glued to various YouTuber’s such as Kathleenlights, Nikkie Tutorials and Chloe Morello. These US and Australian beauties have been using ColourPop for a while now and my obsession for the brand grew along with their collection. The products were never available for international shipping and it always broke my heart. I adored watching these ladies rave about the products and I was ECSTATIC when they finally started shipping internationally. I quickly ordered an insane amount of makeup and I can honestly say I was never more excited. I had a firm idea of what I wanted and I added some new additions to my basket (I’m sorry I just can’t say cart).
There’s nothing more majestic than receiving that ‘order shipped’ email. If I’m in work or out I literally bound my family to the house so that I don’t miss the package! Sounds pretty selfish I know but when I see that “sorry we missed you” card I could cry my eyes out. Anyway, on Monday I was ecstatic to come home from work to see my Beauty Bay order waiting for me. I finally got round to ordering the magnificent Rose Golden Luxury Set Vol. 3 from the iconic makeup brush brand, Zoeva.
I have spent most of this week waiting *patiently* for parcels to arrive. I’m still waiting for the rest of my IT Cosmetics to arrive (thanks for that Beautylish). On Wednesday the mothership of all things beauty was posted in the form of Sephora. I decided to go ahead and order the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. There has been much controversy surrounding the eyeshadow pallette but thankfully my order did not disappoint! The pigmentation, texture and quality are Becca worthy and I’m madly in love. To say it’s majestic is an understatement, the packaging is very ‘Instagram appropriate’ and the colours certainly pop.
It only took me a couple of years but I FINALLY own a few of the infamous IT Cosmetics products. I’ve been going back and forth for so long and last week I finally bit the bullet. I often see so many of my favourite Australian and American YouTuber’s swear by their makeup products, particularly the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. I wanted to show you what I got… I’ll be featuring a more indepth look and swatches of them in a few week’s. I’ve a couple more products ordered (hence the wait for swatches) but I just couldn’t resist sharing my first ever purchase with all of you today.
Where has the week went?! This year is absolutely flying by, hard to believe we’re almost into June. I can’t wait to enjoy some much needed time off. I’ll be planning plenty of trips to Kerry and hopefully a forgein beach holiday for good measure. Just having the freedom to be a little more spontaneous is always a great feeling. When the sun is shining (please be kind Ireland) I find that your day can take you anywhere.
