A Few Beauty Bits // Harrie Buys

Make Up ShoppingI'm trying to stop spending as much money on make up. Mainly because, well, it was becoming a little bit of a problem and I kind of just came to the realisation that no matter how much beauty items I buy I will never have them all. Well, I could but damn it that would be expensive.

That being said I have picked up a few beauty bits and pieces lately so I thought I would just show them to you and even explain some of the things I have been using.

Topshop Magic LinerTopshop Beauty

I am an eyeliner fiend. Literally, every time I see a liquid liner I just pick it up and buy it. I'm not even sure why anymore because its not like I need them. But I just have to see if they are better than the ones I already own.

This one I picked up because I have seen a few people talk about how black it is and its lasting power. I have really oily eyelids, and they are the BANE of my life. Nothing seems to stick or last any decent amount of time on there, so I tend to use waterproof options now.

I've only used this once, but it stuck around for the whole day at work so I was really impressed. It also created a lovely opaque black line, which I personally love. I need to try this again but if my first impression is anything to go off, then it is set to become a beauty favourite!

Topshop Lip Liner

I love the whole 90's style slighty brown nude lip that is floating around right now, and I had a great nude liner from No.7 that I wore to death. Literally, it fell apart in my hand. So that was the end of that.

Ever since that disaster happened, I have been on the look out for a perfect pinky nude but with a slight bit of that brown nude. Long story short, I thought this would be perfect and so far so good. I have tried it on and it feels creamy and not drying, it doesn't cling to the dry bits of my lips and may be a winner.

Rimmel Match Perfection

Rimmel Match Perfection

I picked this up on a whim, and I have been reaching for it every day since. It has a medium coverage, where I normally go for a full coverage. However I find it lasts like a full coverage foundation. It blends with my skin flawlessly and leaves me looking glowy and healthy.

The only problem is the limited colour selection. I was quite lucky and found a colour that suited me pretty well but I can see it being a problem for some people. Probably me in few weeks once I have a little bit of a tan (wishful thinking).

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer

I have never tried a concealer with its matching foundation. Which doesn't really make sense, because surely that is the best way to get the most flawless and perfected finish. I really don't like the tube because I found it didn't dispense enough product and also, it just looks messy. However, the actual product I find nice. It's bright and highlighting, good for under the eyes.

Rimmel Kate Moss Boho Nude

My final addition to create the perfect brown-y nude lip. I only find this colour really works with a liner underneath because the formula is so creamy. Personally, I just think that with a liner it looks more polished than without and that's more the look I am going for. But of course, like all Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks, it is lovely.
