Files of New: Make-up

sephora 4 eye look books holiday setI’ve actually been really good and haven’t been buying too much make-up lately.  I really don’t need any more make-up as I have loads already but every now and then I do treat myself.

My latest make-up purchase was this Sephora holiday eyeshadow set that I bought in the sales. There are 4 eye look books: the smokey eye, the nude eye, the party eye and the metallic eye.

sephora 4 eye look booksMy favorite so far is the Metallic eye look book because I love wearing gold eyeshadow with some darker shadow in the crease to compliment my ever present cat eye liner. I also like the Nude eye book. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a nude eye palette.

Sephora-Eye-Look-Book-SetI haven’t tried the Party eye look book yet but I’m intrigued. I have green eyes and I’ve been told to wear purple eye shadow to emphasize the greenness  of my eyes, but it’s not a look I  would usually go for (I swear by the cat eye. It’s just so simple to do and there are so many possibilities!)

All-in-all I’m happy with this purchase. I wouldn’t have paid full price for it but in the sales I think it was a really good buy. I’ll definitely be using these products so that’s good!


Files of New: the make-up

Hey guys, today I want to share some recent make-up purchases that I’ve bought these past two months. Some of the items were bought in New York and others were bought here in Prague.

This holiday make-up set from Tarte was honestly one of my favorite purchases from New York. The set contains a palette of 20 eyeshadows, a gorgeous lip tint (love it!), a lip gloss, a miniature cheek stain, mascara, a small amount of finishing powder and some maracuja oil. It also contains a make-up bag. Anyways, I bought the set for the eye shadows, which are great, so I could not be happier with it.

I had been dying to try out the new-ish Urban Decay eyeshadow palette called Electric. I have the Naked palettes (the Naked basics palette, the Naked 2 palette and also the Naked 3 palette = what can I say? I’m a fan.) but when I saw a video on Pixiwoo of Sam doing a tutorial using the Electric palette, I knew I had to have it. I bought it in Sephora in New York (I am so jealous, the Sephoras in the Czech Republic don’t have Urban Decay products), where I also bought the Tarte holiday set. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t given any samples even though I spent quite a lot of money there. That’s the one thing that’s better here, at least I always get a sample or two. Also when I got to the hotel and opened this palette, one of the eye shadows was cracked so there was a bit of product spillage and I was a bit sad due to it, but then I thought – I’m being ridiculous – and was right back to my normal happy self. But back to this palette, I love it.
