Lyon Shopping haul post

dav

Hi everyone,

A couple of days ago, my friend and I went to Lyon for shopping. As you can see on my profile, I am French, and I don’t live in Paris… but next to the 2nd biggest city.

Lyon is a great place, well-known for its gastronomy, for its beautiful places, shopping streets, museum, and also for its big soccer team. There are so many things we can enjoy there even though we are far from the capital !

I decided to go in several stores, I love shopping, it makes me feel like I am looking for the Holy Grail, this time I came back home with treasures !

Mac – in Extreme dimension – waterproof mascara

I used it a few years ago, but not the waterproof one. it’s one of my favorite mascaras.

Mac – Diva – Lipstick

dav

I actually received it for free. I saved 6 empty containers that I return, and they let me choose which Lipstick I wanted. I chose that one because I wanted an intense burgundy shade, and I thought this was exactly what I needed.

Mac – Mineralize skinfinish natural powder

dav

I’ve already reviewed this powder in another (old) article. I use it since then and for me it’s the greatest powder ever.

Make Up For Ever – Mat Velvet foundation

sdr

I talked about. it in my previous post, it’s a new foundation and I’ve been using it since a couple of days. But I am really satisfied, and I love how it brightens the skin.

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Air Blush Soft Glow Duo

dav

the packaging attracted me at first. there is a big mirror so it’s very convenient. Then the shade : a mix of sheer and pink.

The Balm – Instain blush

In that case, the packaging also attracted me. I am very weak, and I know I am potentially a victim of good merchandising 😉. More seriously, the colour is really nice and I won’t hesitate next time to buy other shades

The Balm – Mary Lou Manizer

Yes, I finally bought it ! and yes, it fulfills all. my needs and expectations.

Adopt – Coverfit Bronze powder

dav

It was the first time for me to hear about that brand. It’s French so I am not sure whether you can find it online or not…

I bought this bronzing powder because it wasn’t pricey at all, and I’ve found a large range of shades. This one is mat, with a yellow undertone, so it’s good for my skin’s type.

NYX – HD Photogenic Concealer

dav

Good one and cheap ! It does its job perfectly.

Inuwet Unicorn blush brush

We are all unicorns, aren’t we ? This is pure heaven ! and looks so cute !


I think I had an amazing shopping,

Have you ever tried one these products ?  What do you think about them ?

Let me know in the comment section below ! ❀

Where to buy make up and cosmetics

Lately, I almost don’t  buy my beauty products on stores directly. I buy mostly on internet with different websites. I think it’s fast and I can get access to many products directly from my home (did I ever said how much I love technology ? 😉 ).

I know most of the links I will share with you today are really famous, so it’s not something new I am showing, but I just thought it would be nice to tell you where I buy my stuffs.

  • Feelunique

I love to buy on Feelunique, I think they have daily great offers and it just makes me want to buy so much ! The only “problem” is that we have to spend at least 15 euros to get the free shipping (but we all know how easy it is to go over that limit…) and some products are not available in some countries. Besides that, this website is my favourite one !

  • Lookfantastic

It’s almost the same principle with Feelunique, it also has great offers and free shipping (with no limit at all !) I bought a few times with them, their service is  very professional !

  • Amazon

It covers a large range of cosmetics, and it can sometimes be cheaper to buy there than buying on other websites. I buy on Amazon when I don’t know where to buy some things and when I can only find them there…

  • Asos

This website isn’t great only for make up, but for almost anything you need ! I like it !! I haven’t bought lots there but they have great prices and discounts.

  • Rakuten

I buy all my Japanese cosmetics on that website. So far I haven’t found any other website to buy everything I need. I love Japanese skin cares and it’s really hard to find exactly what I want. The only problem with that website is that the shipping fees are quite expensive (especially most of the sellers use EMS post service).  But well, the service is really good and we receive our orders really fast !

I admit sometimes it’s hard to resist and buy nothing at all … I feel I should be a bit more reasonable but it’s for a good reason isn’t it ? Beauty should never be seen as a waste of time and money but should be seen instead as a good investment for self-happiness 😉

What about you ? What’s your favourite online store ?
