What was your last makeup purchase?

Random Purchase (2 of 10)You know the moment when you walk into a beauty store with an intention of buying one thing that you came for and walking out with a bunch of other stuff that you technically don’t NEED? I know I do and it happens to me all the time!

Random Purchase (7 of 10)Last Friday I went to Ulta because I wanted to buy a new soft brown eyeliner that I could wear to my friend’s bachelorette party. I knew I wanted one from Urban Decay as I have a few of their 24/7 eyeliners, I just wasn’t sure what shade to pick. I had a hard time deciding because there are at least 5 or 6 soft brown shades, with glitter and no glitter and they all looked really pretty. Eventually, I settled for UD 24/7 Eyeliner in Corrupt which is described as a “dark metallic reddish brown shimmer with silver micro sparkle”. The shade is gorgeous and a full review is coming up on the blog later  this week.

Random Purchase (5 of 10)When I was at Ulta I also realized that I needed a CND Stickey Base Coat as I almost ran out of mine and I use it every time I paint my nails. I also grabbed a pair of false eyelashes from Ardell in #110 as I really need more practice applying them. I only tried applying false eyelashes once and although it wasn’t as hard as I had thought, I needed a more natural looking pair.

Random Purchase (6 of 10)The last thing that I purchased, although I really didn’t need it, was a red lip liner from NYX Cosmetics in #813 Plush Red. I have wanted to try wearing red lips but I am scared that red lipstick would look too bold on me so I thought I’d ease my way in with wearing the lip liner with some clear lip gloss to get used to it. This liner was only $3.50 so I wasn’t risking a lot. Surprisingly, I really love the color and I wore it to my friend’s bachelorette party and it went really well with my brown/bronze eye makeup and I got a lot of compliments!

Now, it’s your turn. I want to know what was the last makeup/ beauty related product that you bought? Was it a planned purchase or was it more spontaneous?  Are you happy with the product? Looking forward to hearing from you in the comments below.

      It is perfection. I can’t even tell you how many bottles of it I have been through. Have you tried any other products from CND, the Vinylux nail polishes, for instance?

    My latest purchase was a new mascara (MUFE Smokey Lash), but it still is unopened, because I am trying to be good and finish my L´Oréal False Lash Effect first, which I , to be honest, don´t like that much. So if I´ll open up another tube and like it better, I will end up letting the L´Oréal one go to waste.

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      I know what you mean, Linda. I think you will love that mascara. I used the Aqua Smokey Lash in the past and it was fantastic.

    I just bought my third pot of MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack! Been contemplating whether to try a new brand like from Bobbi Brown but for some reason, I settled once again on MAC’s.

    Heehee. I wanna see photos of you wearing the falsies soon. Take care, Agata! xx

    • Agata Piestrak says:

      It must mean you really like that Fluidline! Although the Bobbi Brown liners are supposed to be great.

      I will definitely post some photos once I manage to find time to apply the falsies and provided they look half decent on me 🙂

    For some reason, my comments get cut off? Not sure why but here’s the rest of what I wrote….

    Genius idea to try a red liner topped with a clear gloss. Would love to see pics of the look you created, or just wearing the lippie. Super happy it was a success! I just bought two Milani eyeshadows- Bella Khaki & Bella Teal. I’m in LOVE with the khaki color. Haven’t tried the teal color yet. Also, I bought & returned the UD All Nighter spray.

    I have the Final Seal makeup setting spray by Ben Nye & I like it much better. It matifies my face on contact but gives me a slight dewy finish by day’s end. And it was only $7. Double score. Finally, I picked up a bottle of gel nail polish from Sally’s in Do I Look Buff. Super gorgeous nude that looks perfect on my brown skin + it kinda looks like a vanilla latte 🙂 Headed back soon to use my $5 off coupon to purchase that grey-ish color with the burgundy undertones. Don’t you just LOVE being a girl?! Hope you’re well today. And post pics of your wedding makeup look that’s coming up.

      Hey girl! Actually Karen from MBB suggested trying a lip liner with a gloss first! It works great. I’m going to email you a picture of my look from last Saturday.

      I heard great things about those Milani eyeshadow s but for some reason CVS by my house never has them in stock.

      Too bad the All Nighter didn’t work for you. I love it and always use it for special occasions.

      And I’m sure I will have a lot of pictures from the wedding. I’m still trying to figure out what colors to wear!

    Oh I know that problem way too well :p Sooo let’s see, the last time I bought makeup I bought my RBL nail polishes! The time before that, I got Chanel Safari, Dior Pied-de-Poule (nail polish), and Estee Lauder Fierce (lipstick) when there was a 21% discount at the local beauty chain. A friend is going to London this week, and I asked her to hunt down NARS Digital World as well as the LM Caviar Stick set for me though. I’d like to THINK I don’t buy a lot of makeup, but that is most probably not true :p
