New In: Prom Haul Part 1 - Drugstore

Hellooooo out there! The rain storm outside blew my anticipation of summer away, however, I figured that it's a quite nice excuse to stay inside for once and blog a little bit :)

I don't know if I've told you but it's prom-time next Friday and since my dress is the only point I can check off from my list, i've decided to go buy some potential prom make up-products. I'm planing on presenting my haul in two parts, the first one is obviously about the drugstore/high-street products and the second will be about the more fancy ones (Well I consider them as fancy ;))

You could basically call this a Maybelline haul haha I don't know I guess I went a little bit crazy here. But we will start off with the only non-Maybelline product which is by Catrice. I'm not sure if this brand is well known but I definetely think their products are worth to be mentioned

Catrice Liquid Gold Topper: I've never been skilled in describing things but this product takes my unskilfulness to a whole new level. At first it looks like a Serum with glitter and when you shake it well (as the instruction is saying) it becomes...uhm liquid gold? haha I'm not kidding it's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to use it.

Maybelline Color Tatoos in #35 "On-and-on-Bronze" and #05 "Eternal-Gold":
I had the feeling like everyone was raving about them, so I picked up two ones since the colors fit to my dress. I really love how they feel on your skin, they remind me on the MAC Paint Pots, but apparently are a tiny bit more pigmented. I'm not sure if they last for 24h but I really hope so since my eye-lids have sadly stayed least when it comes to eyeshadow :(

Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics in "Turquoise Vibe" and "Vibrant Gold"
I have honestly said never seen these before. I mean I knew the Master Dramas but I guess the "Chromatic" line must be new. I've been thinking of getting a gold khol liner since as you guys know my dress has golden details. However, the turquoise one instantly caught my eye and as soon as I got the chance to try it out...I instantly fell in love with it. It's sooooooo pigmented, your eyeshadows can definetely be considered as replaced and I admit I'm a sucker for summery colors! I still unsure whether to use it for prom or not but I had to get it!

I've been experimenting with them but since hay fever attacked me this morning I couldn't do a proper make up, I'm sorry, I promise I soon will post one!

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
Clinique has been one of the first brands to bring out geleyeliners and I remember people barely payed attention to it. I, as a lucky person with sunken eye lids (bohoo!), however, have always loved how long the line would last without smudging. Now Clinique in Europe is slightly expensive so I'm glad that Maybelline came out with an alternative. I honestly have to say I am NOT disappointed. 

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
First of all I have a REALLY REALLY good feeling about this BB-Cream. (And this one is actually not part of the plan for my wedding make up. Now as most of you probably know that the BB-Creams have become popular thanks to the Koreans. Korean BB-Creams usually look slightly grey and match their colors to the actual skin tone as soon as you apply it.( A little bit like the Loreal ones)
However, I've realized that the ones over here are really toned and obviously should not only be used to even your skin out but to make yourself look tanned. Since I am naturally tanned I didn't really like how orange these kind of BB-Creams looked like. However, they got me right there as soon as I've read "Salicylic Acid"(an ingredient doctors use for acne ointments). I've been suffering from acne for years, and my skin has just gotten better thanks to my mom and her lemons (haha but this is a nother story) and I really hope this will help my skin to heal. I really like how it feels on my skin, not too heavy and even more important, it does not make my skin oily! There's nothing more gross than having oily skin during summer time!
I don't know what I will think in a few weeks but if you wish I will write a review on this product :)

YOU MADE IT YAYY! Thank you so much for reading if you have gotten until here! I really hope I've somewhat helped you. The second one will follow very soon!
