While traveling through Europe, I managed to do a bit of shopping in London. There were a few brands and products that I’ve always wanted to try but didnt have access to in the States. Instead of paying exorbitant international shipping fees I grabbed them up in my travels! Have you tried any of these brands featured in my mini haul?
First I picked up the Sleek Contour Kit in ‘dark’. This was the first contour kit that I remember hearing about for darker skin. That was years ago, and there have since been more attention towards darker shades, but I always wanted it for myself. I love the highlighter, but I’m still trying to get a grasp on contouring my face and what product I need. Ive sampled a $50 Nars bronzer/contour that was perfect, but I didn’t want to invest if I wasn’t sure that contouring was something I would do on the regular. In the meantime I’ve been experimenting with cheaper alternatives trying to learn the method behind contouring.
I also picked up a couple of lip products from KIKO. I got a gorgeous lip gloss from the 3D Instant Volume formula in the color of 215. I also got me and my mom matching lipsticks from the Smart Lipstick formula in color 935.
This TopShop jacket was an unexpected purchase. Somewhere between Boston and Paris my faux leather jacket from college just started to fall apart. I’m not sure what happened to it all the sudden but the material just started to peel off. I came across this bomber jacket in Topshop and it looked great on. I wish the metal was more of a silver color instead of gold, but it got the job done and kept me warm. Now that I’m back in Texas and it’s 90 degrees, this coat won’t get any more wear until around next January. But I’m glad to have it added to my closet for the cooler weather.
