A Little Beauty Haul + Review: Benefit & Urban Decay!

Hello gorgeous!

I have been wanting to purchase a few makeup bits for quite a while now and finally made a little shopping trip, which is also an excuse to blog, so I thought I'd show you guys what I bought!

Let's begin!

To start off, I've had my eyes on the Naked 2 Basics palette from Urban Decay the minute it came out, but have been putting off and trying to convince myself I don't need it. Weeks and months went by and I've seen it on blogs and vlogs as many times as I can remember, and not having a matte eye shadow palette, I finally got on the bandwagon, and to be completely honest, it is probably one of the best purchases I've made. I've been using it every single time I put makeup on since I've purchased it and I couldn't be happier with the oh so many looks come out of this one palette. Perfect for day to day looks as well as fancy evenings out. You'll be seeing this a whole lot on the blog!

Since it's Summer and my makeup just doesn't seem to last long enough throughout the day, I was in need of primers. I loved the Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion as you might know from previous posts, so I decided to try out a couple of other primers from the range, and went with the Complextion Primer Potion Brightening and Tightening for my face, and the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden for my eye shadow and concealer, both which did not disappoint! I love using both of them, they definitely keep my makeup on much longer and makeup application is just a lot smoother after applying the two. I totally recommend Urban Decay primers!

Last but not least, my new favourite mascara, the Roller Lash by Benefit. I don't know what took me so long, but for some reason I wasn't drawn into it at all. Some people hate it, some people love it and well, I'm one of the people that absolutely love it, I think you need to know how to use it in order to get the best result, which I learnt from the Benefit They're Real (another favourite). But I'm so impressed with this. I don't need to layer mascaras, one coat is perfect for a natural look, two coats are amazing for long voluminous lashes which is what I go for and it is basically perfect. I've been using it every time I apply makeup and it just makes my whole look. I feel like I need another one soon with the amount of times I'm using it, but it's totally worth the purchase! LOVE!

And that is all for today! I hope you guys enjoyed. Let me know in the comments below what you would recommend for my next makeup purchase? 

Have a great weekend!

  1. I adore the Benefit mascara - I stock-piled a few sample sizes from magazine giveaways when it wasn't quite released in the UK and am still working my way through my little stash - it's an incredible mascara. I love the wand, it's perfect for getting every single hair. I've yet to try any Urban Decay makeup, the naked palettes appeal to me but the size of this one you've reviewed looks good for a first dabble - I must look into it! X

    1. I should check magazine giveaways more often! Benefit has great mascaras and this one is such a favourite, I absolutely love it! You should definitely try the Naked 2 Basics palette, it's all the eye shadow you need really :) x
