Hello Lovelies!

How have y'all been? Its been a while/months? since I last bought new makeup products I went browsing but being a makeup lover it never ends there does it?I picked up a few things that I had on my wishlist. My mission for this year is to try new products from various brands I havent tried before!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine  #62 Monte Carlo
I  admit I love lipsticks and have wanted one of these for almost a year and I finally gave in.The shade Monte Carlo is a pretty pink red shade 
As melt-away as a balm, its lip-embracing texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips and provides a stunning gloss effect with natural shine. Deliciously fresh and soft, it delivers an unforgettable sensation of well-being.Lips are enveloped in the incomparable comfort of continuous 8-hour-long hydration thanks to the Hydratender complex, the secret behind the softness of the ROUGE COCO range.Sparkling with vitality, your smile takes on a new sheer colour, from nude beige to tangy red.ROUGE COCO SHINE is available in 18 shades infused with luminosity allowing your smile adapts to portray emotion and desire of each day. From her first successes to magical encounters, the shade names tell the story of Coco Chanel at the dawn of her destiny"

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15 in shade Warm Almond 6.5
A truly modern foundation that offers invisible, weightless coverage that looks like skin, not makeup. This long-wearing formula evens tone, minimises the appearance of pores, conceals imperfections, and offers broad spectrum UV protection. Its hydrating technology leaves skin feeling cushioned, comfortable, and clean. Ideal for combination, normal and normal to dry skins.

- Basically I wanted a new lightweight foundation  for Spring /summer months so whilst in Selfridges I had a lengthy chat and makeover with a lovely MUA at Bobbi brown counter .She recommended the skin foundation  after cleansing my skin but I wasnt convinced so we tested  the Longlasting even finish, Luminous one and lastly the Skin foundation. She explained to me that I had good skin and didnt need full coverage foundation and I couldnt agree more because I dislike heavy foundations I like light to medium foundations that show my birth/beauty marks and allows skin to breathe. In the end I was happy with the Skin foundation and I purchased it 

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin
This is it - THE most legendary primer in the beauty industry. Eyeshadow Primer Potion is coveted by makeup artists and makeup junkies alike because it guarantees more vibrant eyeshadow that lasts all day and NEVER CREASES! Once you experience its powers (plus how smoothly it glides on - an added bonus) you'll never want to live without it. This magic potion comes in an easy-to-squeeze tube with a needle nose tip so you can control how much you apply. You also now get more primer in every tube - 11 ml instead of the original 10!
This is a repurchase I have been using this for just over 3years which reminds me I have to do a review on it. I love the Sin primer potion because of the champagne colour,it can be used as an eyeshadow primer or as an eyeshadow itself. My eyeshadow stays put with the Urban Decay primer potion.  I have the one with the old packaging which is super annoying but am pleased that it now comes in a squeeze tube packaging.

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss in #07 Flash Dance
Magnify. Intensify. Electrify. See how brilliant your lips can be. Drenches lips with the ultimate in sheer, intensely hydrating colour and shine. Exclusive True Vision™ Technology creates an irresistibly dazzling high-reflective finish that lasts and lasts. Rich, feel-good conditioners smooth and protect. The slanted applicator tip follows every curve of your lips for a sheer, lush, super shine. Enriched with skin conditioning ingredients and antioxidants, Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Now Im not usually a gloss type of person but lately I have found myself rushing in the morning after putting alarm on snooze *damn the cold winter mornings* and have no time to apply my intense lipsticks properly I have found myself reaching for the NYX  megashine lipglosses so I thought I would add another gloss to my collection as I havent had a chance to sit on ebay to order nyx ones from the States, This one from Estee Lauder smells yummy and I love that its not sticky and doesnt leave you with white gunk  ahem*mac lipglass am looking at u*! By the way the shade Flashdance is a hot fuschia pink looks like NYX megashine in dollypink which I really love

I also picked up a few sampless of other things I would love to try

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face base 7ml sample
Rich in feel, but never greasy, this advanced oil-free, face moisturiser, with Shea Butter helps minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With daily use, skin looks and feels its best. Bobbi recommends this moisturiser to prepare skin for the smoothest makeup application. Dermatologist-tested.
I have heard good things about this stuff and it has already been added to my never ending wishlist. Moisturiser and Primer in one yes please!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex 7ml sample
You were born with beautiful-looking skin. Reclaim it with this comprehensive, high-performance anti-aging serum. 30 years of innovation. Inspired by groundbreaking DNA research. Use it every day for a significant reduction in the appearance of major signs of visible aging. Skin looks smoother, younger, more radiant and healthy.

- Another product that has been hyped about and I been meaning to try it as I love the Estee Lauer Daywear cream and Idealist pore minimiser serum.Im not sure how I feel about the Advanced Night repair yet as I have only tried it once

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup 2weeks supply sample
Feels like wearing nothing, yet Naked Skin transforms your complexion. Skin looks natural, illuminated and bright with a luminous demi-matte finish: like the beautiful skin you were born with. This remarkable foundation is oil-free, paraben free and formulated with light-diffusing spheres that literally make you look professionally retouched. How does it work? Naked Skin uses optical blurring technology to blur your imperfections, making it the ultimate in ultra definition. This revolutionary makeup loads skin with a list of nourishing ingredients including: Matrixyl 3000 (a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide), protective and brightening Litchiderm, antioxidant Green Tea and Sodium Hyaluronate for optimal skin hydration and nutrient absorption. Buildable coverage allows women to customize their look and makeup preference: from light to full coverage. Urban Decay says its also oil free and paraben free- am yet to test drive this sample soon
