New drugstore make up!

BEAUTY

It’s the start of a new season and drugstores here in England are starting to bring out some new make up products…which is very exciting!

I took a trip to Boots and made some purchases on the newest items on the shelves. I’ve been feeling really experimental recently and have been wanting to try out new products! After trailing and testing them I have picked out my favourite 3 products to tell you about…

The first thing I have been really liking is the ‘Max Factor All Day Facefinity’ primer. Primers are the one thing I have never been too fussed over and never really gotten excited about. However, I am genuinely impressed by this one! I picked it up purely because it stood out to me and as I’ve said, I have been feeling very experimental and so I wanting to try it out!

 

I really like the consistency of the product – it feels like a mixture between a moisturiser and your average primer. It comes out of the bottle as a white colour but then when it moisturises into your skin it turns clear and blends in.

I think the reason I like this so much is because it doesn’t take long to dry. Normally with primers and moisturisers I seem to leave them ages before I can apply my make up so that they’ve properly sinked into my skin. But this one drys super quick and therefore makes it a really quick and easy step to add to your make up routine!

The next thing I have been loving is this Stila blush in ‘pink glow’. (Stilla is available at Boots incase you’re wondering!) To start with I would just like you to take a minute to appreciate how stunning the appearance of this is…I personally think it looks gorgeous!

It’s a baked cheek duo, combining a darker pink blush with a brighter pink highlighter.

I have been loving the shimmer it brings to my make up look, although if you apply that little bit too much, you can turn into a glitter bomb! Then the lighter pink colour is great for a highlighter!

 

Stilla is a brand I have never tried before so I am thoroughly impressed with the first product I’ve tried.

The final addition to my make up bag is this Revlon lipgloss in the shade 570 ‘S mokey Topaz’.

I had been in search of an inexpensive browny lipgloss from a drugstore and struggled to find one that I really liked. But I found one!

 

This feels really glossy and moisturising on your lips and unlike the average drugstore lipgloss, the glossy feel actually stays for a long time (even if you eat wearing the lipgloss!). There is a range of really nice colours in this collection of lip glosses that would all look really nice in Spring.

No more dry lips! | Clarins lip oil

BEAUTY, LIFESTYLE

It’s winter, the season where my lips get so dry with the cold weather, I seem to spend all my time applying Vaseline to try moisturise them! Is it just me, or are you always trying to find that one product that not only stops the dryness but prevents it too? Well, I think I’ve found it…

Clarins lip oil has started to be raved about online and that’s how I found out about it. You can buy it in two flavours: raspberry or honey, I have raspberry (which is why it’s this pink colour!)


The oil has a thick texture and goes on like thick oil. But, don’t worry! Its not how it sounds! Its a really nice consistency that leaves your lips feeling so moisturised. 


It comes with a thick applicator thats so soft and different to any other lip balms/oils I’ve used before. It smells amazing too!


I’ve never found something to be so effective for my lips and I’ll carry on using this all the way throughout the year. It leaves your lips looking so shiny, you could actually just use this as lipgloss!

You can find it here at the price of £18.00 which is pricey, but its worth every penny if you suffer from dry lips!

Thank you for reading, whats your favourite lip care product?

Love always,

URBAN DECAY HAUL

BEAUTY

We can all go a little wild when online shopping. Unfortunately for my bank balance, my most recent purchases were from the dazzling urban decay! Here is what I ordered…

First is the famous eyeshadow primer in the shade ‘original’.img_3698I was so excited to try this because so many people rave about it. It makes your eyeshadow have a more even, smooth look and acts nicely as a base.
(How pretty is the bottle?!)

Next is the revolution lipgloss in the colour ‘liar’.img_3695I’ve never tried their lip glosses before but I have heard good things about them! Most reviews say they are really glossy and long lasting. I tried this on in the shop before I bought it and was really impressed! (So my mum treated me to this!)

Now for palettes! First I thought I’d try the Naked 2 palette.

I really struggled to decide which naked palette I wanted because I figured that numbers 1,2 and 3 all have some colours that are similar. But I opted for this one because its mostly neutral colours that I can wear from day to day.

I also love the fact you get given a brush – a girl can never have too many make up brushes!

And last but my no means least, is probably the most popular eye palette at the moment…the Naked smokey eye palette.

I would just like you to take a minute to admire this packaging…wow. Its just insane.
img_3707
You get a range of dark colours, all of which can be mixed to create different smokey looks. There is a real variety of colours that are all so pretty! There are a range of matt and shimmer shades which is good because matt shades are coming in now!

I have fallen in love with Urban Decay packaging…
