MAKE UP HAUL AND REVIEW !!!!!!


Hey guys !
So a couple of weeks ago I purchased these products , I'd just do a detailed but brief review about some of them here . 



First , I'd start with

MAC STUDIO FIX FLUID FOUNDATION - nw50 
I know a lot of people are so crazy about mac products and this might come as a shocker to you but I really dislike this product ... I don't like the coverage it gives , I don't feel it's enough , plus I literally sweat "foundation" when I step out in the sun.. I like this product when I do makeup for pictures but not outdoor ..but hey! That's just me (and probably this Nigerian weather) 
Price - N6,500 

HOUSE OF TARA - HIGH INTENSITY PIGMENT (MARGARET EKPO) 
I think this was my best buy , I absolutely obsessed with this eye shadow ... I love the pigmentation , so bold! , I've been playing a lot with this lately .. The colours appear on your skin , just as they are (use a good primer too) ..I used this to achieve a "green day" look (I'd make a post for that later) 
Price -N2,500 

MAC STUDIO FIX PLUS POWDER - nw50
I would always love this powder .. It gives that smooth finish and matte effect which I love especially cause of my oily skin ...I've been using it for years (started out with my mother's lol) but I think the shade (nw50) is a bit dark for me now but It gives that refreshed look you might need when you're out and you quickly need to touch up 
Price- N6,500

HOUSE OF TARA LIP PENCIL - Wine 
 Love this ! It is my go to lip pencil ..I use it with practically every lipstick colour ...well , almost. It smudges perfectly too. 
Price - N550

MAC LIPSTICKS - HEROINE and MEDIA 
Side line : I would do a post later on on mac lipsticks (including these two) with swatches and pictures of how they look on me 
Heroine - I loveeeeee this lippie so much. Totally worth all the hype ! It suits a lot of skin tones ... It's my favorite purple lipstick right now (till I receive my pending order ..shhh) ...ps: it's matte 



Media - i was crazy about this lipstick even before I got it .. I love the vampy look it gives (osheyy mrs Salvatore) ... Try this out guys ..give "ruby woo" a break will ya ;) 

MARY KAY MEDIUM COVERAGE FOUNDATION - 600 
I know a lot of people use this foundation ...and I like it very much ... I use it on days when I'm too lazy to go over the process of applying my black opal foundation ... It's easy to apply , the coverage is good and it lasts a while too , plus Hey! It's pocket friendly ^_^ 
Price - N1,600 



BEAUTY BLENDER 
A.k.a miracle worker.... A.k.a blend those blemishes away ...lol this is another product that is worth it's hype (you must have heard of it ) .. I love it .. I use it to blend my foundation and concealer and the pointy edge makes it easy to reach under eye corners ...you should totally try this out ! 
Price - N3,000

THE ARTMATIC LASHES - 
Price - N1,000 each. 
I'm not really a fan of the lengths I got .. So I won't judge the whole lash line based on the particular ones I got. I'd probably just stick to the ones from amazon or red cherry lashes 

Well that's majorly it 
And well the zaron pencil , I haven't really tried it out , I would probably feature it on my next makeup post ... 
Bye for now :* 
Please leave a comment ; feedback would be nice :*

  5. Uwani you're blog is so interesting and informative. I was going to buy mac liquid foundation but you're the 3rd Nigerian blogger to discourage me. I guess I'll just stick to my mary kay. Could you do more tutorial videos tho? X
