Beauty Haul & Welcome Back!

Hello all! Been a while, hasn't it? Well, the flurry of 3rd year exams is finally over and done with so I can finally dedicate time to this ol' thing. I still can't believe I've actually finished university - three years sure did fly. And what better way to begin the end of my exams with the month of Ramadan? It's one of the few times we sit as a family together every night to open our fast, my absolute favourite month of the year.

So on to the blog post - what better way to kick off my comeback than with a gold old fashioned beauty haul? I think buying new makeup helped ease the stress a little, and I've collected quite a few things which honesty, I love each and every one of.

So the elephant in the room here is obviously the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette, aka the blogger's dream. I can't tell you how many times I just stared at the webpage thinking 'should I/shouldn't I?' Well, I finally did and I don't regret it one bit. I can honestly say I've never used such pigmented eyeshadows in my life, I can't wait to use them all!

I also popped into the new NYX store in Westfield Stratford City for the first time the other week, and I couldn't help but get my hands on a few of the Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks. Usually nude lipsticks are quite difficult to find on the highstreet for darker skintones, but NYX have such an amazing range that you really can't go wrong. So much so that I had to get a few, of course. I picked up Ruffle Trim, a gorgeous pale nude which doesn't give me the 'dead fish' look, thank God. I also got Seduction, a more pink nude which I've worn constantly for a natural everyday look. Finally, I got Exotic which is a darker pink which I wore for the first time on the day of my last exam and it's so pretty, honestly I love them all they're such beautiful shades. 

Finally, after being on my wishlist for the longest time, I picked up the Cover FX Enhancer Drops in the shade 'Moonlight'. Seriously guys, this liquid highlighter will blow you away - it's so so pigmented I only need one/two drops for an ultimate glow. I get so many compliments when I wear this, it's honestly one of my favourite makeup products. 

So that's everything! I'll be back very soon with tons more to share, absence really does make the heart grow fonder, I've missed this space and I'm going to give it my all now that i have the time. I can't wait to share more with you!

What have been your favourite buys recently?

Keep it real,
