The Snapchat filters in London are so cool.
I wasn’t expecting to spend an entire day on Oxford Street, but it happened. I wanted to visit stores that weren’t in Canada, so those included Liberty (this is the prettiest department store EVER), Selfridges, John Lewis, Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, Mango, New Look, Primark, Superdrug, Boots (<3) and the list goes on. I didn’t do a lot of shopping for clothes, but I did spend some money on makeup…
We arrived at our hotel around 12 pm and hoped to get checked in early. Unfortunately, we had no luck at the Hampton hotel, which meant my husband and I had 3 hours to kill. All I wanted to do was sleep. But with some time to kill, we decided to make our way to Chinatown to grab my SIM card. Because I wanted London Snapchat filters during my trip… obviously.
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Review and Swatches – Solow, Bumble, Tulle
If you follow ColourPop on social media, you know that the Ultra Matte Lips have been long-awaited and anticipated by beauty lovers well before the launch date. Many brands have been jumping on the liquid lipstick bandwagon: Anastasia Beverly Hills, L.A. Girl, Lime Crime, and the list goes on. The day the Ultra Matte Lips launched on the ColourPop website… let’s just say the word madness does not describe it enough. I refreshed the page like a madwoman to no avail—that website was just not cooperating with me that day. After an hour of refreshing, I put my laptop to rest.
The next morning, I tried again. A ton of shades were sold out, but all of the shades that I wanted were still available. PRAISE. THE. LORD. (It was a Ramadan miracle!) So I snatched up Solow, Bumble and Tulle.
Onwards to the swatches!
My MAC Eyeshadow Palette | Swatching Oddity
Once upon a time, I was a MAC eyeshadow junkie and collected a whole slew of 15 MAC eyeshadows. There are some eyeshadows in here that I absolutely adore and some, not so much. I’ll share which eyeshadows those are and swatches, too! (Also, if you are wondering why the texture of some of the eyeshadows look strange, it’s because I may have dropped this palette on more than one occasion… oops).
