Baobella £150 Selfridges gift card haul!

Hi beauts! Hope your all well

It seems like ages since I last blogged. I have been so busy creating lots of new makeup looks, trying new products, freelancing and organising a ladies night that was last week! Phew.. stress over

First of all I would like to say a big big thank you if you voted me to win the Baobella bloggers go pro competition. I didn't win.. but I came second with a £150 gift card! Its such an honour. I don't know if any of you guys remember my post on the Baobella bloggers go pro competition- if your new to my blog or haven't seen it you can check it out here. 

How cute is this pink little envelope! 
Heres the look I came second with...

I went for a ultra glam 1960s inspired makeup look

Of course I cashed out my £150 gift card on makeup and it didn't take me long at all to spend (probably about 15 minutes). Here's a snap of what I purchased...

The first counter I visited was Nars. I love Nars blushers so much and couldn't wait to get my hands on another one. I was looking for a natural everyday shade and the lady at the counter suggested 'Lustre'. I tend to stay away from peachy shades- but when I tried it on I could instantly picture it as a casual, everyday blush- it also gave my cheeks an amazing glow.

Nars lustre blush RRP-£21.50
The second counter I visited was Mac and boom my whole gift card was spent!

I love the Mac mineralize powders- they give such a beautiful glow to the cheeks and can be worn naturally or very heavy. I have been eyeing up Gold deposit and Dainty for a while. I have actually used Gold deposit MSF in a look already because I couldn't wait to try it. How gorgeous do these baked powders look?!

Right- Mac Dainty Mineralize blush RRP-£19

Next, I went for Oyster girl lipglass and Brick lipliner. Currant lipliner is the only lipliner I have tried from Mac and the formula is amazing! The liner lasts for ages and really does stop lipstick from bleeding. Because I love Currant so much I thought I would try Brick as it is a classic red that would go with most red lipsticks. Oyster girl lipglass is a beautiful nude pink with gold shimmer.

Right- Brick lip pencil RRP-£11.50

The rest of the money was spent on lipsticks! My makeup collection is quite huge as you can imagine but it lacks a good lipstick collection as I have never been confident with my teeth or smile and didn't want to draw attention to it by applying lipstick. BUT since I have had braces my teeth look much better and I am much more confident with my lips and smile so needed some new lipsticks for the collection and also some colours to experiment with in looks.

From Left to right- Viva glam Nicky 2, Candy yum yum, Creme cup, Yash RRP-£14 each

I think thats a nice little selection there. Purple, pink, nude and brown toned nude? I can see these colours working for so many different looks!

I also bought the number 44 lashes which are very dramatic and elongated. Here are some snaps of looks I have done with some of the new products I bought with the gift card.
