How many times do we all scroll through Instagram and see amazing pictures of things we want to buy immediately because our favourite Instagrammer or celebrity is recommending it? I am one of those suckers that do it ALL THE TIME, so this post is all about those 'Instagram made me do it purchases' and they have actually turnt out to be amazing buys.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam - I do love a good highlighter and when ABH launched these kits in two shades, I was all over them like a rash. Initially, they were pretty hard to get hold of and luckily, I had a colleague who was away working in the US at the time who managed to hunt one down for me and I couldn't thank him enough, I legit LOVE this kit. Consisting of four pretty, champagne, pinky shades, they apply beautifully and the formula of the powders are so velvetly, they glide on like a dream. All four shades are buildable upon eachother and offer THE most amazing glow.
Lorac Pro Palette - Another product that required a little help from travelling friends, this palette is a must-have for all eyeshadow lovers. The shades are so versatile and perfect for everyday wear, they blend in smoothly and lasts the whole day without creasing. The texture of the eyeshadows are buttery, but keep their hold and they're super pigmented also. I would highly recommend this palette, without a doubt, one of my favourite Instagram enabled buys ever!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Chocolate - Officially one of the best brow products I've tried in a long while, the ABH Dip Brow Pomade is easy to apply, lightweight and blends in with the natural tone of your eyebrows. Using the angled applicator brush makes for precise application and when blended in using the spoolie side, my brows look so natural and perfect.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Barcelona - For that dewy skin look, this foundation will be your go-to. It is lightweight in texture, applies smoothly and great for those with drier skin conditions as it has more of a hydrating type of base. There is also a massive range of shades for this range which is great and honestly, it creates the most luminous looking skin I have ever seen.
Kylie Cosmetics Lipkits in Dolce K - Okay, so these lipkits took Instagram by storm when they first released and I found myself liking about 2375846353 pictures of them. Then finally I got hold of some which was so stressful and definitely something I wouldn't want to go through again. Luckily, they are now fully stocked up and you can shop them without having to wait in a queue and with less hassle. Were these worth the hype and effort? Definitely so, I love all of the shades I purchased and would still highly recommend them if you fancy treating yourself. The lipliner has such a lovely texture and the actual liquid lipstick itself applies well and lasts ages. I know there are more affordable dupes of these out there and by all means, I will try them out too, but if you're asking if you should try these, my answer would always be 100% yes.
