So this is the reason why I ended up having to go on a spending ban. It was a beautiful morning on the 9th May when I was casually scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed been I saw someone had posted about free worldwide shipping at cherrycultue.com although I hadn’t heard of the site before when I went to have a look and saw that they sold Milani I had to tell my friend Jigna. You don’t even want to know how crazy she went. Yes we both love makeup but she was beyond excited at the thought of getting her hands on some more Milani products. It didn’t take either of us much convincing to go ahead and place an order. As well as Milani they also had some NYX products too so I decided to go a little bit crazy and try some stuff out.
I had seen Jigna wearing a Milani lipstick and it looked stunning, and since then I have wanted to get my hands on them. I was going to give up the opportunity now and went for 3 colours. It was so hard decided but seeing as I’ve been collecting quite a few lipsticks lately I had to remain calm (which was more difficult than I thought!) I can’t get over how amazing the packaging is and the smell of these is just incredible. They worked at out just under £5 which to be honest I think is an amazing price. How gorgeous does Flamingo Rose look?!
I also went for a face powder from Milani too, purely because I thought it looked pretty.. is that bad? I’m yet to swatch it but I think the colour match should be pretty good. I also picked up a baked blush & bronzer, and I just can’t get over how pretty they both look. Such amazing colours and the payoff is so good too. They are quite shimmery, but in a highlighting way rather than chunky glitter. I can’t get over how nice the packaging is, considering they are drugstore prices they do have this premium feel to them.
Last up were some NYX products, I picked up another Jumbo Pencil, 2 Matte lip creams (which I am now obsessed with by the way!) and two blushes, one of which I’ve been using for contour and it’s worked out at a really nice subtle contour shade for every day, nothing too over the top and it’s the sort of colour you can be a bit heavy handed with without having to worry too much.
Overall this way a pretty major haul so me and Jigna decided we had to go for the spending ban, considering I got so much amazing stuff I have to say it’s made the ban a little easier.. well kind off.
