Amsterdam makeup haul! (&jewellery)

So when I was in Amsterdam I was lucky enough to have my boyfriend stand and wait in make up shops for me
(he didn’t even moan once!!!) for about three hours while I covered my hands in a million different products and then chose the first one I swatched, so here’s a little haul!

 

(sidenote: please excuse the awfully bad flashbacks on these pictures that not even photoshop can make look acceptable, I took them while in Amsterdam and didn’t realise how awful they were until I had got home and binned all the packaging etc, so sorry!!! )

 

First stop was ‘De Bejinkorf’
(it’s basically their version of Selfridges etc)where I spent ages wandering up and down the all the little makeup stalls in my own little wonderland, while I was there I pIcked up a MAC retro matte liquid lip colour in the shade ‘back in vogue’ (above).
While I’m De Bejinkorf I also picked up a YSL rouge volupte shine lipstick in the shade ‘beige blouse’ (47) ((below))
Next stop was the Kiko Milano shop, oh I had a field day in here!! I have never tried Kiko before
(look out for a first impressions post)but have seen so many positive reviews that I definitely wanted to give it a try! I picked up quite a few bits;
I picked up their make up blender along with a smart lip pencil in the shade 712 Rose Mauve
Finally I picked up two eyebrow markers
( I couldn’t decide on what shade )and two High pigment wet and dry eye shadows!
( one is to be used as highlight ).

 

The colours / names are below!
Here are swatches of the lipsticks / liners / eyeshadow / brow stuff! I love it all 😍
And finally, this is not makeup but it is from the Tiffany shop in Amsterdams De Bijenkorf so I thought that I’d include this beautiful necklace that I recieved for my A level results! And I am so so so so grateful 😍💗
So, have you tried any of these products? Or is there any others that you’d recommend? Let me know in the comments!
Hope you enjoyed the post,
Love, Melissa X

    Ahh makeup shopping are the best days! You bought all great stuff! I've yet to have a YSL lipstick but I'm looking forward to the day I do. That color is super gorgeous. I only have one thing from KIKO and I love it! The only store we have here is quite a ways away so I'll have to do more shopping online for those. Congratulations on your A levels! The necklace is beautiful! Great post 🙂
