Haven't done one of these 'face of the day' type of posts in a while, i'm sure you can see why. ;) I feel a bit vain posting pictures of my mug up for the people of the internet to see to be honest, haha. I figured i'd do one anyway to show some of the products i got from my trip actually put to use.
I've absolutely been loving the Gosh eyeliner and Sleek Contour Kit, they are both new staples in my collection. The Gosh liner totally tops Urban Decay's famous 24/7 one in Zero like it's nobody's business. If you can get your hands on it, definitely try it out! And the contour kit was a total bargain, don't think i'll be able to live without it from now on! Makes the skin look gaaaaaawgeous and hasn't broken me out, which many drugstore products seem to do *knocks on wood*.
The Two Faced 'Illuminating' Shadow Insurance in Candlelight is totally new to me, i hadn't heard of it until my sister gave it to me (i think she got it as a 500 point perk at Sephora). I really do quite like it though! It's not as opaque as the Urban Decay primers are (ie. Sin), which i actually prefer. It's just as good as the original staying-power-wise and it does brighten up the eye area to help make it look like you actually got your 8+ hours of beauty sleep - hence the 'illuminating' bit - without making it look like you have packed a ton of product on your eyes (like i have below haha ;). Mac's Shroom looks amazing over it btw. :)
Hope you're not too offended by this little '
