First off- I am a huge fan of the Kate Moss/Rimmel lipsticks. My favourite is the red in the shade 107, which I wear all the time, so when I heard she was releasing a new collection with them, I had to have something from it! The shade I got is 40, which was actually the only shade left in stock in my local Superdrug, and is quite a pale nude. At first, I was really unsure about the shade and thought it didn’t suit me, but I have grown to really love it. I only wear it when I do a smoky eye, and I think it works really well. This is another lip product which smells really nice, kind of like a sweet shop, and I find it lasts quite well when paired with well moisturized lips.
I am also a huge fan of the Ted Baker body products and body sprays. I spotted this new one in Boots, and loved the scent, but there were none left, so I bought the giftset, which was only 50p (£7.50) more than the spray on it’s own, but contains a body lotion, body spray and body wash- so a great deal! It was also stunningly packaged in a mint blue box with rose gold details and a floral print on the sides. The scent description says it contains violet, vanilla, patchouli, amber and fruity notes. My only problem with it is that the scent fades quite quickly, and it’s only available in a small bottle, so won’t last for ages but it smells so amazing and is such a good price.
Bourjois blushes are my favourites, they are beautifully packaged, come in lovely shades, and they last for years. (No joke, I’ve had one blush for nearly three and it’s only just starting to run out) So as soon as I heard about their new Aqua Blushes, I ran straight to Superdrug. I got the shade 02 CocoriCoral, which is a really natural peachy-coral colour. I had an issue with this product from the start, however, the pump is useless. I don’t know if I just have a faulty one, or if other people have this issue, but instead I have been unscrewing the top and applying it straight out of the bottle. Apart from that, I love it! It looks really bright coral when you apply it, but it blends really beautifully, lasts amazingly well and looks really natural. I will definitely be buying more. If cream blushers are good enough for Alexa Chung, then they’re good enough for me!
I heard FleurDeForce talk about the Maybelline Master Sculpt contour and highlight, and decided to try it out as the highlight sounded good and I was over-excited by the big stands and adverts in Elle magazine, ha. I tried the contour, but I don’t really like it. I am not a fan of contouring on my face anyway (or in general, particularly), but it doesn’t blend very well and just looks streaky. I do, however, like the highlighter. It doesn’t last incredibly long, but it has just the right amount of shimmer to it and is easy to apply. I wouldn’t re-purchase or say I am wild about it though.
Lastly (phew!), I bought the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in the shade No52- Vanille. I have heard so many bloggers and vloggers talk about this, so when I needed a new foundation, it had to be this one. I got the medium coverage one, as my skin hasn’t been great recently, so I had to stop using BB creams and the like, as they just didn’t offer as much coverage as I needed. Now, I can see why everyone loves this foundation, it blends really well, lasts all day and matches my skintone so well. It also gives my skin a lovely glow, which doesn’t at all matify once I apply setting powder.
Congrats if you made it to the end! I didn’t know how much I could write about makeup so I have really surprised myself.
