Airport Shopping at Heathrow!

Yay I’m back in KL after THE most relaxing flight ever due to having an entire row (and pretty much the whole plane) to myself! I arrived at Heathrow airport with ample time to spare before my flight, so I decided to do a bit of shopping.

First I stopped by at Boots to see they had tons of sales and package deals for their cosmetics so of course I dove right in! After much consideration I decided to get a Max Factor Lipfinity 24 Hour Lip Colour and the Colour Elixir Lip Liner in a matching shade!

Lipfinity comes in a set that includes the actual lip colour, in a shade called Spiritual (this pleases me), and a suuuper buttery balm that seals in moisture as the colour is a matte, which is known to be pretty drying. The liquid lip colour smells delish and true to its name, stays on all day and night until I take it off! There are still traces of the original swatch I took from the tester product on my arm that I never bothered to actually remove with makeup remover, and it’s been like four days since I tried it! I’m pretty impressed!

These two combined came up to a total of $15.99, which made me eligible for a Bright Eyed Glamour box set worth $33! Inside were 3 full sized (Not tester sized but FULL SIZED!) products: The Max Factor Eye Luminizer in Light/Medium, Colour Elixir Gloss in Glossy Toffee and the Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara in Waterproof black. ABSOLUTE JACKPOT YOU GUYS.

ALL these products are gonna get a ton of use from me, I haven’t tried the mascara or the gloss yet but I’m loving the Eye Luminizer! It’s a perfect match for my skin tone and makes my skin super silky and smooth, I don’t even have to use a primer anymore for my eye makeup! Completely in love with my purchases and winnings haha.

Next up I headed over to Victoria’s Secret, where a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal was going on! Obviously I couldn’t miss this opportunity even though I have never shopped at VS all my life (I’m more of a LaSenza girl tbh). After checking out the selection of glosses, body sprays and various balms and lotions eligible for the sale, I decided to get two Warm & Cozy body mists and a Beauty Rush gloss in Mocktail Hour.

Why did I get two of the same thing? BECAUSE THESE MISTS SMELL GATDAM DELICIOUS. They smell like warm vanilla cookies and anything that smells like COOKIES I must have at least two! My Beauty Rush gloss was more of a “oml that’s so pretty” kinda purchase, because who doesn’t want sparkly lip gloss with a metallic lip keychain attached?! I haven’t actually tried or even opened the gloss yet, and to be completely honest it’s probably gonna end up one of those items I just keep in my bag because it’s cute and glittery and not much else (a lot like the stacking Sephora lip glosses Marie “lent” me literally a year ago ewps), but I regret absolutely nothing.

So there’s my mini beauty haul from Heathrow Airport! I’m actually looking forward to going back there to see what other deals are on!

🌸 REVIEW 🌸 | Technic BRONZE & SULTRY Eyeshadow Palettes πŸŒΊ

One of the very few things that I think are better in the UK than in KL is the fact that LOOKING GOOD IS SO GATDAMN AFFORDABLE. Or, if you’re hopeless like me, just looking half decent maybe. Either way, cosmetics are cheap af in London and even drug store brands are worth a try. One of my faves that I fell in love with instantly is Technic Cosmetics – they have an enormous range of items and their products are actually not half bad for the prices! So the other day while I was at Body Care stocking up on cosmetics and skin care products, I picked up a ton of Technic stuff including their Sultry and Bronze eyeshadow palettes, their Ultimate Brow Kit and a cute set of Contour Stix (separate review coming another time as youve probably already seen tons of pics of them on my Instagram 😁).


 
Without any further ado here are my two new palettes from Technic Costmetics! I’m pretty sure I’ve purchased their Sultry palette before but Bronze  is a new one for me. Unfortunately I can’t remember how much I spent on these babies but they wouldnt have been more than Β£2-4 each because I’m a total cheapskate. I absolutely love their metallic shades, they’re super pigmented and glide on ultra smoothly with or without primer. They have great staying power too! Unfortunately I can’t say the same for their matte shades, they’re not as pigmented, don’t glide on as effortlessly and don’t stay on for long either. Even with primer! Here are some swatches for you!


These are from the Sultry palette. The first two shades are too light for my skin tone (although the admittedly the inside of my arm is not really representative of my overall coloration – thankfully I’m a bit browner everywhere else!) The matte brown shade second from the top actually shows up pretty well in this picture, but it’s mostly because my brush was slightly wet because I had wiped it on a facial wipe to remove the glittery pigment from the previous shade I was sampling. Still, very nice colours though and I’m not a huge fan of matte shadows anyway so I’m happy! 


THE BRONZE PALETTE THO. YAAASSS JUST YAAASSS. DEM PIGMENTS. DEM HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS. “100” emoji all the way!! πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―  Super creamy, super smooth and super sparkly and just everything you’d expect from a high end designer brand. At the moment it’s 4pm, and I’ve been wearing this palette since morning, and it still looks pristine ! No primer or setting spray needed!

I look so tired omg NO BUT LOOK AT THE MAKEUP

LEGIT MY EYESHADOW LOOKS SO FRESH LIKE ID JUST APPLIED IT 5 MINUTES AGO

So yeah, the Technic eyeshadow palettes get a 6.5/10 and 8/10 for the Sultry and Bronze palettes respectively. I’m not a massive fan of the shades in the Sultry palette as two of the colours are way too light for me and their matte shades, one creamy yellow and the other a reddish brown, weren’t very pigmented and didn’t go on very smoothly. However I absolutely love all the colours in the Bronze palette, they compliment each other very well and blend seamlessly – In the picture I’m wearing three different colours on my lids and the matte brown on my lower lash line, where you can see its faded in some places. Would defo get the Bronze palette again!

Anyways, enjoy some pictures of my Ultimate Brow Kit and Contour Stix and I’ll be back soon to review them! Later taterz πŸ˜‹
