A Bit of Shopping

The New Things + First Impression #2

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I recently did a spot of shopping and picked a few things I wanted from a while.

1 – Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – Waterproof (RO 6.800)

I mentioned this in my last wish list. I wanted to buy new mascara and and settled for Maybelline Lash Sensational because of the raving reviews it’s been getting. I got it on offer from Center Point. You get Maybelline’s Lasting Drama 24H Automatic Gel Pencil for free when you purchase Lash Sensational mascara.

I have used it a couple of times. It’s truly waterproof and doesn’t come off from normal cleanser. I think you would need a proper eye makeup remover. I found it a little clumpy but it settles after a while. I am still testing it out and am undecided how I really feel about this product but hopefully by the time I do a review I would have a clearer idea.

2 – Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel for Makeup Brushes (RO 8.000)

Yes!!! I finally have it!!! *happy dance*

I have been after this cleanser from a bit and I am so happy to finally have it. I tested it just once and I am very impressed by the result. It didn’t even take me two minutes to clean my brushes and they came out squeaky clean, super soft and no shedding. I am going to try it a couple more times over the weeks and will report back. Though let me just tell you guys, I am already in love with it.

I would like to give a huge shout out to ‘Makeup Medley Muscat’ for arranging this cleanser for me. Thank you so much!! If you’re from Muscat and are looking for someone who can get you not easily accessible brands and products, I would recommend MMM. They are really friendly, helpful and suggestions are always welcomed. I am linking their Facebook page and Instagram below. Let them know if you’re visiting their page because of my blog. 🙂

Eyeing Some Drugstore Beauts! x

Guys, we are just two days away from October… what?! Where did most of the year go? 😐 Let me know if you have any idea!

I compiled a wish list for today’s post. I went to Center Point a while back and saw so many things I liked.

1- Blue eyeliners are having a major moment right now and if you know me at all you would know how obsessed I am with the color blue. Maybelline is doing some of the best blue eyeliners. They have a liquid pen liner, pencil liner and kajal. I have tried all of them. The liquid pen gets the job done in one stroke, the pencil liner has a lasting texture and the Kajal is plain gorgeous. I can’t decide which one to pick and which one to drop (so I might buy them all).

2- I am into Mascaras a lot these days. I love my Essence Get Big Lashes mascara but I will be finishing it soon so to replace it I have two options. I am curious about Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara as almost every blogger/youtuber is raving about it so that’s one.

3- I also had my eyes on Max Factor mascaras especially their Masterpiece Transform from a while now. Let’s see which one I pick. (Pretty sure I am picking both!)

4- I am not really that crazy about eye shadows but ever since I have seen NYX Show Girl I can’t really think about anything else. It’s a pot of copper goodness. I can’t wait to try it on my lids. I’ll prolly be sweeping it all over. Totally in love with this shade.

5- Bourjois is slowly becoming my favorite brand. I already have a blush from them in Golden Rose and love it. I swatched Love Struck Rose and have been dreaming about it ever since. It will be an impulse purchase if I get it.

6- I haven’t really stopped talking about Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick ever since it came here. I have tried one of their bold shades – pink. Pros; the finish is matte and pretty. Cons; It doesn’t go opaque in 1/2/3 go, smells a bit weird and feels like you have oil on your lips. Not sure if I will buy it but I will try the red one. If it is any good I surely will.

What’s on your wish list these days?!

Edit Note: Center Point Muscat is offering Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for RO 6.800 with a free black gel eyeliner. How much more convincing would one want to get this now? 😉
