Recent Additions to my make-up ✿

Happy weekend everyone :)

I just want to say how much I miss blogging!!! it's been quite some time since my last post, but I've been recently going through a lot of changes in my life! and the biggest one is that I'm expecting new addition to my family ❤❤ so it's been a little bit of a challenge to sort things around especially TIME! But it's SPRING time - which is possibly my favorite time of the year, not too hot but not too cold and the flowers everywhere is just perfect! 

in this post I'd like to share with you my recent additions to my make-up collection! it's been a while since I updated my collection, so it's time to do so! I'm planning on trying new things every month because the 4 coming months are filled with celebrations! YAAY! So far my additions are: the Beauty Blender ❤ Gosh foundation, Dior mascara, H&M lip pen and eye pen.

Ever since H&M introduced their Beauty line, I've been wanting to get something I would just stare at every beauty product in their App and just hope to get it - but it looks like there are millions who had the same wish!! I wanted to try their blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows but nooo it was all out of stock!! But I fell in love with their "Beauty Pens" so I got one for eyes and one for lips!! the eye pen is a shimmery pink gold soft color, I've been using it in so many ways like eyeshadow, inner eye corner brightener, upper lip highlighter and sometime to give some sparkle to my lower lashes - it's obvious I love it! the lip pen is not red as it shows in the pics :p it's almost a hot pink it gives quite a good color, I sometimes use it for whole lips and sometimes just as a lip liner (it's hard to do so because it's huge!! :p) both were a good deal costing almost 2 BD each!

My must have make-up item is mascara! I was going on a mascara hunt and I didn't have this one in mind but once I tried it I fell in love with it and I didn't hesitate to buy it! but theeeen reality hit me its color is kohl black! do you know what that means? it's the darkest thing I've ever tried which is good but when removing it OMG! it's the Panda situation!! I can't really say that I LOVE this mascara but it's not like I HATE it, it's a bitter sweet love :p I just need some more practice to master applying it!

but then again maybe I'm comparing it to my last one which was Lancome it was PERFECTION! I got it as a promo with a perfume and it was the best thing ever - it lengthens and gives a beautiful volume but sometimes when I needed more dramatic look I would use Givenchy. Both were amazing but I wanted to try something else! I got Dior (Diorshow Black out - Kohl)  for 17 BD, Givenchy ( Noir Couture 4 in 1) for 15 BD both from Sephora.

For a long time I've been looking for a beautiful foundation and when I decide to go get one and try them there was always a reason that I get back home empty handed!! and finally I tried this foundation from Gosh cosmetics - I love their products, I've tried nail polish, lipstick and eyeshadow and all were to die for! - and as I started using it I realized that it was a huge disappointment!!! first it's a light reflecting and I'm an oily skin kinda person, so you you can always expect a disco ball on my face after a while!! plus the shade was not the right match for me!! I give this foundation a lot of chances that I might have applied it an a wrong way!! and for the last time I'll be giving it a chance with THE beauty blender and I hope it won't disappoint me! I got it from lifestyle for around 8 BD.

 Last but not least is the Beauty Blender ❤❤ :p excuse my hearts because these are my very recent purchases I just got it last week and I can't wait to try them! I've been wanting to get one for a long time BUT it wasn't available here in Bahrain (my country) so I had to wait or order it online and I finally after searching and searching I found the perfect online shopping website that was actually a Bahraini so I thought YES I'll get it, then at the same time I went to Sephora and I saw a booth for the beauty blender! but of-course it was out of stock but I asked for how much they were and it was fate that made it out of stock because it was 1.5 BD more than the ones from the website (Mrs.Kim: so easy to order from and nice customer service!) so I ended up ordering these twins!! I'll let you know what happens when I try them. did you like it ? is it like what I imagine it to be?

so that's it for my newest additions and plans for the future are a new powder since mine is dyeing but I want to get another one because it was a favorite, whenever I use it I fall all over again but I want to try something else! is there a good competitor to MAC? I'm thinking of chanel or dior still haven't decided yet! what do you think?? and what are your recent additions?

have a nice day
