USA Beauty Buys!

Happy Sunday! I thought I would share with you a few make-up goodies I purchased on my travels to the U.S recently! These products I heard great things about and caught my eye straight away and after using them for the past couple of weeks, it's safe to say they have impressed me, so it seemed only right that I had to share them with you ...

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Highlighter - Since this highlighter launched it's been huge over the internet, what with the amazing highlighters Becca cosmetics have to offer already and then a collaboration with the wonderful Jaclyn Hill it was a must for me when I entered the Sephora store. As soon as I seen the shade up close, I practically ran to checkout! It is the most beautiful sun-kissed, golden shimmer! It looks perfect with little makeup or a full face, you can have it natural or achieve a serious highlight and I imagine it will work great with so many skin tones and makeup looks, I actually get excited applying this product every morning..

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit - At a first glance this kit was a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but the pigments are great which means a little goes a long way! The shades are individually unique and work lovely with different skin tones. I find this great for throughout the year when our skin changes, this palette makes it easy to work with and I still get a great highlight and contour! My favourite shades I've been using lately are Banana (top middle) and Havana (bottom right).

MAC Eyeshadow Cranberry Frost - I had to include this to the list, especially now we are into Autumn (which I am super excited about) the colour is simply beautiful, I had seen this many times and thought it was eventually time to pick it up, it goes perfectly with those dark plum lips and you can achieve a soft subtle look or a smoky eye just by using more or little product - I will definitely get my wear out of this over the next few months!

Bare Minerals Matte Foundation (medium beige) - I have used this foundation in the past from the Bare Minerals starter kit and loved it! It lasted ages and was a great build-able coverage and was brilliant for my oily skin, with being a powder foundation! This summer and on holiday I have been loving minerals, having recently ran out of my L'oreal mineral foundation I thought I would give this one a try, the shade is perfect for my skin and it feels great to have a break from a liquid foundation once in a while!

So there we have it, my must have purchases from the U.S! I can't get enough of them since coming home and can definitely see me getting use out of them over the next few months! You have probably heard of these products - just like I did! But you never know if they work right for you until you try - and I am so glad I picked these up!

Are there any make-up items you've picked up and fell in love with recently? Let me know - they might be added on to my next must have list :) x

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
