New Makeup Goodies

Good morning lovelies! Hope everyone is having a good weekend :) Been cleaning out and organizing everything in my wardrobe to make room for some new things I purchased whilst in London - which I will show you in an upcoming haul. Am so happy with everything I bought! I also strangely love getting rid of things I don't wear anymore. I prefer quality over quantity - and I just give the things I don't need anymore to charity.

I also received an amazing present from the wonderful crew at The Platform, which is a channel under the network I am part of. They have great fashion & beauty videos which are really fun to watch - and is the home of the fabulous P'Trique, whom you might have seen on America's Next Top Model. They really outdid themselves with this package. It includes some amazing products from Urban Decay, NARS, Benefit and even YSL. To say I was excited would be an understatement lol :)

It came in this gorgeous lilac makeup bag in a big gold box wrapped in ribbon


Josie Maran BearNaked Wipes - These look so good. They're free or harsh ingredients & contain Argan oil which I love! They also donate a portion of every package sold to the NRDC's Polar Bear SOS initiative :)
Benefit POREfessional Primer - I've heard so many great things about this primer, can't wait to try!
Ciate Velvet Manicure - A new concept for your nails. I personally like a really glossy manicure, but could be cute as an accent nail.
Ojon Dry Cleansing Spray - I love dry shampoo's for touch ups between washes. They're also great for adding volume to your roots. 
Tony & Guy Hairdresser - A complimentary cut & color at their hairdressing academy :) Might use it in the spring time to lightly ombre my hair again. 
TOCCA "Love Yourself" Fragrance Collection - 6 little mini samples which all smell really fresh. Will be nice for keeping in your purse - always got to smell nice ladies :)
NARS "Foreplay" Cheek Palette - So gorgeous! It has a matte peach and pink blush, a highlighter and their signature blush in "Orgasm".
Benefit Moon Beam Highlighter - I love a touch of highlighter, it really brightens up your face. This one has a slight yellow undertone (compared to their "High Beam" one) so it compliments my skin tone better. It will be super pretty to wear in the summer time with a nice tan. 

Diorshow Extase Mascara  - Dior is known for their mascaras so I'm excited to try this - although it's hard beating my HG Clinique one! But let's see :) Checked the reviews online and it's been highly rated.
Urban Decay "Smoked" Palette - I've had my eye on this palette for a while so I was so happy when I saw it in the bag! It has 6 metallic shades and 4 matte. 
Origins GinZing Mascara - This mascara has a very gentle formula, so it could be nice to wear on days when my eyelashes need a bit of a detox :) 
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in "Zero" - These are always great to have when creating a sultry eye - plus these pencils in particular are highly raved about and recommended! Excited to try. 
Urban Decay Mini Primer Potion - This came with the eyeshadow palette. A must for preventing eyeshadows from creasing.  
MAC 282SE Duo Fiber Shader Brush - This brush will be good for applying a neutral wash of color all over the lid due to it's size. It could also be use for applying under-eye concealer. 

 Close up of Urban Decay's "Smoked" Eyeshadow Palette. Such gorgeous shades! Can't wait to play around with them.

Buxom Lipgloss in "Dani" - I don't own any Buxom lip glosses so I'm excited to try this. I love the pink / lilac shade and think it could look nice with a simple winged eyeliner.
YSL Lipstick # 17 - You must know how in love I am with these lipsticks! The packaging alone is like a little piece of jewelry :) It's going on display right next to my other one on my nail polish rack.
Dior Addict Lip Glow - A super high end lip balm! I love :)
NARS Lipstick "Belle de Jour" - A perfect shade of nude to go with a smokey eye. The consistency is also quite moisturizing which is great for these colder months.

I am so excited to try all these new products! Thank you so much to lovely team at The Platform for sending out these goodies!! You guys are amazing. I am so lucky :) If there's a product you guys would like a more in-depth review on, let me know in the comments below :) XOXO

  11. oh i'm so jealous,-joking- lol! those things looks so amazing! please tel us what do you think about the josie maran bear wipes, i really love this brand, but so sad because they don't ship to Kuwait:( i'll try to find it in sephora here. i video viewing those things would be great.
    i'm feeling so bored and sad. i stayed for about 3 weeks hardly going out because i was having my final exams, and when i finished them last thursday and had the chance to go out and have some fun, i hardly spent an hour at the mall when my mother said that we should go back to pick up my younger brother. 2 days later -saturday- i went to my dentist to get out my teeth -i think they're called wisdom teeth or something!- because i've just took of my braces/orthodontics. i really can't discribe it, my actual teeth doesn't heart me that much, but the swelling is horrible! i letterally can't close my mouth even while the spoon hardly fit into it and my face is getting bigger every day since that and the swelling reached my neck! i shouldn't work or move hard. i harldy slept last night. just finding the right position for my neck without letting my cheeks touch any thing or feeling pain was impossible. my neck is hearting me and i'm having a headache. the pain is wiered! i'm so tired and sad. i wish the swelling will get better tomorrow. boredom is making me cry. i want to talk more but don't know what to say. i REALLY need some help, but i don't know what to do. sorry if my english isn't very good, it's not my first language. i love you annie. ........

    1. I had mine taken out last year. I definitely feel your pain, try to apply a bit of heat to the area and at the same time slowly exercise trying to open your mouth, the more you do, it will be easier to open your mouth to eat and speak. Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic plant such as Matico, it will work very well for healing your wounds faster. Good luck! :)
