So recently I went shopping in Belfast and I got some really great things. I absolutely love Belfast - the shops, the Titanic exhibition, the architecture, and especially the accents. Northern Irish accents is probably my favourite accent!
I enjoy going up there a few times a year and this is the first time I'm blogging about some of the things I picked up. I hope you enjoy and I may do a review or two on some of the items I picked up.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
I have been meaning to pick up this foundation for a loooong time so as it was on sale for £5.99 I was definitely picking it up! I have heard many good things about this product and I am eager to try it out. I bought it in the shade 100Ivory which I think is the palest shade it comes in.
Real Techniques Brushes
Let me firstly say - I absolutely LOVE these brushes! I went to a few Boots in Belfast trying to find these brushes and eventually I found them! I picked up the blush brush (pink) and the face brush set (bronze) - which includes a contour brush, small pointed foundation brush, concealer brush and a buffing brush. As you can probably see from the photo I have already used them and they really are great value for money. I am considering doing a review on them as they are such a great investment which wont break the bank! The blush brush was on its own and was £9.99. The face brush set was £21.99.
Sleek Blush - Lace
Sleek is a make-up brand which is raved about by many beauty gurus but unfortunately it isn't sold in stores in Ireland. So this was one of the things I had on my list to buy before I went to Belfast. I had my mind set on picking up the Sleek Contour Kit but I wanted the light shade and sadly they were out of stock. I managed to find a blush set which was around £9.99 for three different shades. I was originally planning on buying one of Benefit's blushes but since they are twice the price for one I decided it was a better deal to get three for half as much!
Urban Decay's Naked Palette
I know I am VERY late jumping on the band wagon with this buy but I had hesitated to buy it for a long time due to it's price, but I gave in and splurged on this famous little palette. I decided to get the Naked1 instead of the Naked2 because warmer toned colours like browns and golds suit me better than cooler shades. I actually didn't buy this up north, I found it on sale a few weeks ago for €36.99 when it was on sale in Debenhams (which it isn't anymore). I know I will get so much use out of this.
This is something I have been meaning to buy for a while since it came out. It was around £18, and I can't wait to try it out. It is similar to Benefit's Highbeam, but I find that Highbeam is more suited to people with cool undertones and since I have a warm undertone, Sunbeam is a good match as it has a yellow undertone.
