Good morning bloggers. I have a slightly different post today, something for you beauty product lovers. I am a self confessed spend-a-holic but this month i decided to spend my wages on more beauty product based items. As the seasons change, so does our skin. Some (including myself) can quickly go from quite oily skin to very dry brittle skin. So lets have a quick peep at a few of my recent purchases!
Starting from the left.
- Revlon double ended eyebrow brush - £5.99
- Topshop "velvet lips" lip gloss - £10
In short, I'd say bigger make up brands need to take tips from Topshop. This lip gloss stayed on ALL day. No exaggeration, its matte texture (when applied correctly) had my lips stay the intended colour for hour after hour.
Exceedingly good, get your hands on one!
- Maybelline 'Colossal Volume Express' & 'Falsies Volume Express' - £7.99 (each)
When it finally came time to do a new make up haul, I panicked "What brand is now best?" "what if the brushes are too thin" "what if they have no effect on my thick eyelashes" - all things that came across my mind when standing in Superdrug. Panic over, I decided to go for Maybelline as they are advertised and spoken about often as being one of the high st best. When trying them I did find that the brushes were thinner than my previous fave, but oh so worth buying when learning how to apply mascara properly for an average day. Going for a thinner brush meant that my eyelashes were more low key but nevertheless appearing longer. These mascara's do what they say on the tin!
- Sleek 'Face contour kit' - £6.49
I was ever so happy on the weekend to find there is a cheaper version that virtually does the same thing. I purchased the 'dark' shade for my skin (although the dark tone in the kit is darker than first thought) and will probably not look at another kit for a while...It's amazing!
Subtly applying the darker tone on the hollow (under cheek bone) of my face and then adding the highlighter to my cheek bone - the contour of my face through make up had been achieved. Instructions inside make you go through a go-no-way-wrong process and this product is available in all 'light' 'meduim' to 'dark' shades.
- Real Technique 'Miracle complexion sponge'
With easy use and the right amount of my Mac studio fix fluid put on the sponge, my face had never looked so smooth and even. For a non strieky, level, smooth and affordable look, buy this haha!
- Garnier 'Moisture match - 24hr hydration Mattifying Fresh Cream' - £5.99
available at most Superdrugs in; 'Goodbye dry', 'Stay afresh' and 'Protect and glow' besides the mattifying one.
Happy shopping bloggers!x
