I recently made a target order and used MyMallBox to ship it to the UK, target now ship to the UK but it is a little expensive so I wanted to use the forwarding company to see if it worked out cheaper.
I only really ordered because I wanted to try the new L’Oréal pro glow foundation as I love dewy foundations and the L’Oréal pro matte gets so many good reviews so I had high hopes for this new one. I got the lightest shades in 201 and 202.
I’m not going to go into detail on these just yet as I’m going to do a separate post on these! Just know that I love it and I’ve only been using it for nearly 2 weeks now.
I also got the Maybelline master concealer which I’ve talked about on my blog before, they don’t sell this in the UK, I have no idea why, we are always the last people to get anything which is so annoying but I wanted to pick up another one as it’s so good, I use this for my blemishes and it’s the best for covering them, without looking Cakey like some thick Concealers can do.
I also got this new master strobing stick, in the shade 200, I had seen this on Instagram and also a few American girls I follow on snapchat said this was really good so I wanted to try it. I love highlighting sticks. This is a tad bit dark for me which is a shame but I believe these are out in the next few weeks in the UK and come in 2 different shades.
Lastly I ordered 2 elf cosmetics palettes this one which is the contour palette and also the illuminating palette but that one arrived completely smashed which I was devastated about as it’s the one I was most looking forward to using. I have had a play around with this and to be honest it’s not that great, it’s not very pigmented and it’s really hard to pick up any product, I’ve tried with my fingers, and a brush and if just doesn’t work. Good job elf cosmetics is cheap.
So that was all I picked up, I think I’m going to take a break from ordering American makeup for a while I’ve had a bit of a nightmare with custom charges and broken items, it’s just getting so expensive and a bit risky with makeup. It cost me about $19 shipping and a £16 custom charge for this. If I didn’t want those foundations so bad I wouldn’t have made an order.
Keep an eye out next week for my review on the pro glow foundation 🙂
