Paris Beauty Haul + Swatches

بدون عنوان

Hello my beauties welcome back! today i wanted to call all my beauty lovers to gather around so we could have a chat about the beauty stuff in Paris?! Yes of course. And i’m so excited right now so let’s jump into it!!

we’re going to start with Skin Care. and the first place i went to is Keihl’s and i only got one thing.

And it is the Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum (why they have such a long names on all of their products?!) and the reason i got this is because Heidi Hamoud (@heidimakeupartist on Instagram)  used it for her under-eye circles and I (myself!) noticed a difference, because i have really dark eye circles, and it can bother me sometimes with concealer, and i’ve deep-set eyes, so it’s really hard to manage concealing sometimes. and thought this might help!

and next for skin care i went to the best.. French Pharmacy (that was on my beauty bucket list!)

and the first thing i got is the L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion, and i mainly wanted to get this on my birthday but i got the Almond milk one instead, but i loved what i got, but i also got this because i’ve been looking for this a long time ago! so couldn’t resist!

and the second thing i got is the Caudalie Moisturizing Mask. now, i’ve heard wonders about the Caudalie brand, and i wanted to try something from them, i didn’t want to get the Beauty Elixir because i love my rosewater from the herbalist, and i didn’t wanna get the Divine Oil, because i have enough oils for life, and i could get organic, all-natural oils from the juicer. so i got the moisturizing mask cause, i love to deep moisturize my skin!!

and the last thing i got is a set of 2 for €7.99 lip balms from the brand Weleda, and i’ve always wanted something from Weleda since it’s a wellness brand, and i tried the lip balms,and so far so good. they’re great for before applying lip products, because it’s hydrating, but not slippery. but it’s good for deep hydration and moisture, they’re not good for sleeping.

Moving on to Makeup shall we?

starting with the drugstore brands.

Also from the drugstore i got three stuff, starting from the left.

the first thing that i got is something i’ve looking for it everywhere. it’s the Revlon Matte Balm in Sultry, as soon as i saw it, i have possessed it!! i wanted it in my life more than anything (what a passion about a lip product!)

and the second thing i got is the L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper, at first when i tried it, i was kind of heavy-handed with it, so i didn’t like it, but when i scraped off the excess product and used a light-hand with it, i fell in love!! it’s such a great product for keeping the brows in place for a long time, and gives them the SUPERMODEL BROWS! (No, it’s not that fancy!) but it’s a good product.

and the third product is the one and only L’Oreal Telescopic Extra-Black Mascara, now this mascara is not available where i live, nor the surrounded countries (i think), so i had to get it, because most people seem to love it, and i am way too attracted to the tiny wand that is got! so, i was happy with my purchase.

Next, is the high end brands..

So, the first thing that i had to get is a foundation, because i ran out of my Bourjois Healthy Mix, and what a better opportunity than trying the Nars All-Day Luminous Weightless foundation, since everyone seems to love how full coverage it is, but very light on the skin. my shade is Barcelona, i thought the best match was Stromboli, but Stromboli seems to be way too olive for me, so i got Barcelona, and now i think that Barcelona is the best match for my chest and face.

and i finally got the beloved Nars Blush in Dolce Vita, and i once read that this the best blush shade for Medium-Olive skin tones, and i also read a very nice tip Bobbi Brown written in her Beauty Rules book, is that the perfect blush shade for you the color you get after a good workout and something like that, and today i’ve had a good workout the blush is matching to the color i got on my face, which was a win for me!!

and finally from Nars, i got the Audacious Lipstick in Anita, which is such a beautiful color. i wanted to swatch Anna in the store but they didn’t have it. so i was pleased that there’s no other choice than Anita!!

And from MAC i also got three stuff.. (what’s wrong with me?)

DSC_2666 (1024x681)

the first thing i got is the Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Uninterrupted, this eyeshadow is life for me right now, it is the most beautiful camel color i’ve ever seen in my life!! it’s just..beautiful!!

and i also got a lipstick, which is a color should be talked about, this color is called Retro, and it is so beautiful. like it’s spicey muted red, with a brown hint to it, i can’t explain it really well it’s so beautiful!

And saving the best for last!! i finally got my hand on this beauty!! as soon as i got this i was like “YOU ARE MINE!!!” and i thought getting another one, but i thought that is just too much! you know. but i was looking for it everywhere i go, it’s an obsession!

and i got one thing from Bobbi Brown, and it’s the Rich Lip Color in 10 Plum Rose, i was eyeing this for so long, and now  i got it, cause it’s beautiful.

I got the Acqua Di Parma Gelsomino Nobile Eau de Parfum, and i mainly asked the woman who worked there for something with Jasmine, and it smells heavenly, and i got the small bottle because the big one was expensive af.

and i also got some nail polishes from the drugstore..

Cocoa Karma is a beautiful camel color (my obsession), and Carry On is dark, but muted plum color, so gorgeous. both of them are awesome for fall also!!

that was it for my haul, i really hope you liked it, thank you so much for reading and i’ll talk to you next time..

Love, Shahad../
