I like to think that I'm a very organised person, and part of that package is the need to have things written down in some form.
When it comes to makeup, there's always something new I'm lusting after and always manage to forget about, so having them written down can definitely make the task easier.
So without further ado, these are some products I definitely want to pick up sometime soon!
Kiko Everlasting Colour Precision Lip liner - Hazelnut|
Kiko just brought out an amazing range of luxurious lipsticks and lip pencils which I'm dying to try out. I don't own much in the way of Kiko makeup but this gorgeous brown shade comes with an in-built sharpener, it's definitely one to pick up!
Kiko Velvet Passion Matte lipstick - Hazelnut|
The matching lipstick is equally beautiful. I've definitely been more into browns recently, and this is a slightly deeper colour than any brown lippies I own. The packaging is so pretty and there's a metallic clasp instead of the classic click close, much like my recently purchased Chanel matte lipstick (which I adore!)
NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam|
I've also bought into having a strong highlight game, it's become an essential feature to my daily makeup routine! I've never tried a liquid highlighter so that's something new. This colour is so flattering and I definitely want to try out the gold toned highlight in this range too.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Fudge|
If you know me, you'll know that I've never really been much of a lip gloss girl. This definitely changed last year and I own two pale pink/nude shades, but I saw this online and I was obsessed with the colour. Just look at this, ah! It's definitely a wearable brown and I've heard great things about the consistency of this range.
NYX Lingerie Lipstick in Teddy|
My oh my, have I wanted this for a while. Liquid lipsticks are definitely a much loved product, and I've heard amazing things about the new Lingerie range from NYX which cover a whole host of nudes and browns. Teddy is definitely the one I have my eye on!

My oh my, has it been a while!
I'm so glad to come back to my dear blog after exam season has well and truly finished (for me anyway!) I feel really weird about having free time and not regretting relaxing...it always takes me a while to get used to not feeling guilty for being on Netflix when I actually have no obligations, haha.
Best of luck to those who've still got a way to go (you've got this) and congrats to those who've climbed that steep mountain - on we go!
I recently bought a few products I've been wanting for the longest time - part post-exam treat and part reward for actually doing the studying (hey, we all need prompts).
NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation in Stromboli|
Okay, so readers of DoD will already know that I bought this foundation roughly a year ago in the shade Syracuse, but unfortunately it just looks way too dark on me (I got it in late August so figures). As my first higher-end foundation purchase, I know I'll be reaching for this all the time. The perfect mix of glow and not looking greasy on my perpetually oily skin, and Stromboli is my absolute perfect shade.
MAC Burgundy Times 9 Palette|
Okay, so this one was unplanned, but in a good way. I saw that the price had been reduced and the colours were so gorgeous, so I thought 'what better way to dip into MAC eyeshadows?' I'm sure glad I did - the colours are so wearable and really bring out the richness in brown eyes, as purple-toned shadows usually do. A great combo of day and night colours, mattes and shimmers.
NYX HD Powder in Transparent|
This is by far my best purchase. Holy cow! I've been using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder since I first got into makeup, but I always knew that it never really cut it out. I'd always get oily within an hour of applying, but I forever delayed actually buying a better powder. I've had this on my wishlist for a while and I finally picked it up - and I'm glad I did! One swirl of this on my t-zone and I'm good to go for the whole day. How did I live with my makeup before this?!
CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte lipstick in Mystérieuse|
The day has come, guys. I finally bought my first CHANEL product. In an effort not to sound too much like I feel completely accomplished in purchasing this, I really love this. It's a very wearable pink colour and is more creamy than it is matte. I love that it has a magnetic lid (my first lipstick of this kind!). Even though I've been more into browns and nudes recently, I can definitely see myself getting a lot of wear out of this. It's so pretty ahhh.
