As promised, I'm here to share with you all what I picked up while I was at PHAME! I didn't go over board, though it's very easy to when you're surrounded by all sorts of brands.
I picked up was a few things from Lime Crime and let me tell you, the line was CRAZY, but totally
worth the wait!
I decided to finally pick up Blue Milk Liquid Liner, a gorgeous pale blue, which I have been lusting over for the past year and I don't know why I never got around to buying it, but at last it's mine!
The next product that has been on my wish list since it came out is their Velvetine in the shade Wicked. This color is literally my everything right now! I also got the chance to swatch Utopia Velvetine, and this color is quite unique and should be out soon!
What I was most excited about was -of course- getting my hands on some brushes. Like I said I didn't go too crazy, although I wished I had because these brushes are extremely affordable! *Hides face in shame* I only picked up three!
The brushes I picked up are from Morphe Brushes. I was looking into buying some blending brushes and these were the ones I chose, M433 PRO FIRM BLENDING FLUFF. They are extremely soft and blend my eye shadow like a dream and of course I needed two, one for applying whatever color of choice and the other to blend. Or you can simply use one brush, but I thought why not get two.
Believe it or not, but I've never really owned a smudge brush and always wanted one, so I went for the M408 CHISEL SHADER.
I picked up a few hair products from Rock Your Hair. I've always had a problem when it came to having volume in my hair, and although I have thick hair it always remains flat. Needless to say, my hair isn't as voluminous as I would like it to be, so when I saw Bombshell Big Hair Powder in action, I was instantly sold! I've tried this a few times and it does give my hair the volume it desires. The other product I decided to try was Get A Lift Volumizing Spray.
The first time I used it was amazing, my waves were more voluminous and it also smelled really nice!
One thing I have to say is I felt like my hair got a tad greasy after a while, but I still have to test this one out some more to have a final opinion on it.
I'm not a huge lash wearer, but I've always wanted to
try some out to amp up my make up look. Ever heard of the saying: once you start wearing false eyelashes, you'll always wear false eyelashes? I've always wondered if that was true, so I guess we'll find that out soon! I picked up 8 pairs of Ardell False Lashes and even a cute eyelash holder to store the ones I've used.
Well, that's just about all the products I purchased at PHAMExpo this year. Have you tried any of the products mentioned?
Until next time, sending all my love to my fellow make up connoisseurs!
