Whilst on my trip to Poland (I took a lot of pictures, blog post with them is up now!), I picked up a few things at Duty Free and also in Sephora. So here's what I bought..

First stop at the Gatwick Airport's Duty Free was Mac, and there I picked up the Pro Longwear 'Painterly' Paint Pot . I also then picked up a Pro Longwear Lip Liner in 'Etcetera'
for my 'Velvet Teddy' Lipstick. I talked about these products elaborately here.

This next product is an old favourite of mine, and I wasn't planning on buying until I saw it and realised that I actually really loved this product. So the repurchase is the loved Benefit's They're Real. I previously did try out the Roller Lash but I don't really like it as much as the They're Real.

I got really happy when I saw Sephora down the street in Cracow and I had to get some things!
First up was this fleshy tone Long Lasting Kohl Pencil in '07 Infinite Beige' since I've been on the look for one for a while now and I really like this one! The pencil is bigger than any other of my eyeliners which means extra product when you sharpen it! I use this on my waterline and it seems to stay put for long.

Then after minutes of looking for a makeup brush (which in the end, I bought none) I spotted a Beauty Blender (I didn't even realise that it was THE original beauty blender itself!) and I'm really glad I did pick it up because the quality is amazing. It blends your makeup in really well under the eyes especially due to the 'tapered' point at the top.

So since I picked up an eyeliner, I had to pick up a Pencil Sharpener that wont break my whole pencil after sharpening once. I have yet to try this sharpener but I'll report back shortly!

I always saw many Youtubers use these face masks, and let me say they're not the best but not the worst. The one I got was a Mattifying & anti-blemish Mask (Green Tea Mask).When you open the pack its already cut out and all you do it place It on your face and massage it in. It gets difficult if you have a smaller face since the edges will just go on your hair. 

The last thing I got in Sephora was this Nail Polish in 'Icy Cocktail'. It's the perfect size for nail polish because, let's be real, we never finish a nail polish up before it dries up! The brush is really nice (similar to the Essie brushes, big and soft), which makes the nail polish glide on smoothly and with minimal stokes and coats.

What's the most recent thing you bought?

Personally, I love Mac and especially the lipsticks. I'm so happy that I finally have a 'Mac Collection' that I'm satisfied with for now. So here are the things that I have..

This is a medium coverage mattifying powder where you can use it on it's own or on top of foundation for extra coverage and for a more matte look. This Powder is good for combination oily skin. Personally, and recommended by the makeup artists in Mac, you shouldn't reach for the sponge to apply the powder since it will be a cakey mess. However, you can still use it through out the day to blend out/take off makeup (if you get what I mean then that's great haha)

 Mac Testers:
In these pots I have a mixture of the Prolong wear testers and Studio Fix Foundation testers.
I honestly have to say that I hate the Pro Long Wear Concealer, I definitely think that the Collection Concealer is far more better!
However the Studio Fix Foundation, is amazing and when I run out of my current foundation, I'm going to have to buy it!

Since the lipstick is quite sheer you can 'regulate' the amount you want. A small stroke gives a pretty pink sheen to your lips. When you put a little more, its more of a darker pink.
Matte Finish Lipstick in 'Velvet Teddy'
Velvet Teddy is an all-season shade, which makes it my go-to lipstick. It'll bless your lips with a beautiful vintage aesthetic, chic and casual. Try it, its great!


Sheertone Blush in 'Pinch o' Peach' {discontinued}
This blush just gives a touch of colour to your face and the best thing about it, is that it is a sheertone which means it suits a lot of skin tones (even the most palest because you can put the tiniest amount). It blends well and is buildable (photo). This blush was also kindly gifted by my friend for my birthday :)

Mineralize Skinfinsh Natural Powder in 'Light'
The name speaks for itself, this powder is the most natural. Yes. The most natural, I've yet come across. Not matte but not glowy, it's like real skin. You a tiny bit under your eyes to set concealer if you're avoiding any caking or texture (not cute). Then again, nothing's perfect so do take note: you'll need to touch up. This doesn't hold up as well, hot and long summer days will get you reapplying. On the bright side, it's not cakey - nobody wants that, right?

*These next two products are purchased recently at Duty Free which means they are a few % cheaper and also I'll be doing a Haul.. So expect to see more of these two products later on!
Personally, this is my favourite lip liner of all! It stays put all day, and doesn't transfer on cups when worn alone. It's creamy which means it can be worn alone.
Also it is one of the lip liners for the 'Velvet Teddy' Lipstick! 

'Painterly' Pro Longwear Paint Pot
Yet again, the name speaks for itself, It is longwearing.. It does not crease or move around. This is a fleshy tone which means it is also good for blocking out any discolouration on the lids. Everyday staple!
Are there any Mac products you think I should try?

I had a really nice time spent with my cousin and my family, exploring places I've never been to (or been as a child), finding cool places near the house for photos, etc..
