Think make-up, think United States and the brands Wayne Goss and Lorac Pro somehow pop straight into my mind. Two brands that seem sort of out of reach – at least if you’re unwilling to pay additional import taxes like me – yet a friend of mine was kind enough to bring a few things home for me that had been listed on the wish list for what seemed an eternity.
LORAC PRO PALETTE | It’s on everyone’s wish list right? If not, it must’ve been scratched off already. Considering the fact that this is a cult classic, it goes without saying that I had sky-high expectations and so far it seems to be fulfilling my expectations without much flaws. Ranging from light to dark, shimmer to matte, top notch pigmentation and the texture buttery soft – I’d be completely fine to take this on holiday with me and have my eyeshadows sorted. And that’s really something. A girl needs to have options but for once they seem to be gathered in one sleek palette. I bow down.
WAYNE GOSS BRUSHES | I have been wanting to invest in quality brushes for quite a while now. Not really owning something of great quality, I was desperate to find a brand that’s not purse-weepingly expensive yet made out of great quality – does such thing even exist? Wayne Goss intrigued me with his awesome brush collection the moment they were launched. I do crave new face brushes more than eye brushes ’cause honestly, what’s a 217 not capable of? Since my Real Techniques Buffing Brush is really on its very last leg, I was in desperate need of a new foundation brush and so I picked up brush 01. Brush 02 will be my new cheek hollows’ BFF referring to contouring – obviously. Blusher brush wise I’ve been really torn between getting brush 11 or 12. When I finally decided to go for brush 11 it was sold out and went for brush 14 instead. And finally, I got the amped up version of a 217; brush 06. The quality feels sublime and oh man, I can’t stop stroking my face with these brushes – so incredibly soft, it’s unreal. I’m swooned already.
