Over January of course I have bought many beauty products, theres no surprise there really is there. I have made many trips too Boots and a few other places so thought I might as well show you the few bits I bought.
So these are the few bits a picked up since the start of January, some I have managed to use and others I haven’t had the chance to experiment with yet.
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner
Mac Hello Kitty blush in Tahitian Sand
Maybelline Instant Anti-age The Eraser Eye in Light
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in light 2
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
The No7 lipglosses were actually picked up in one of the sale bins in boots, however there were soo many of the items that they were absolutely fine and reduced down to £2 from £10! So I had to pick the colours up that they had. The texture of these lipglosses isn’t too sticky and leave a lovely shine on the lips, they also hold a lovely colour. However the colour only last around half an hour then another coat needs to be applied. Think these were a brilliant find! I also found the 17 Lipstick in Shell in this part of boots and was reduced down to £1, I couldn’t look at the actual lipstick as it was sealed but thought that looking at the bottom of the lipstick I would suit the colour. I was so wrong! This is the strangest coloured lipstick I have ever found, it is a very shimmery white colour once applied onto the lips and I really don’t like it. Im going to give it a few more times before I give it to any of my friends or family but don’t think ill ever get used to the colour of this.
While shopping in the Asos sale I came across this Bourjouis Bronze kit and have been wanting the Chocolate bronzing powder for ages but never got round to buying it. So I decided it was about time I owned it and seen as though this came in a pack with a few other items I thought why not get it! When the item arrived I was really excited to use it, the bronzer smells amazing and is overall a really good bronzer! I will definitely be re-purchasing this item. I also got the blush in Lune D’or which I have actually been using as a highlighter as I find the blush a little bit too shimmery for my checks but absolutely perfect for a highlight as it gives just the right amount of shimmer without giving it too much. The kit also included a Effect 3D gloss in Brun Exotic, I have had a few of these lipglosses in the past but never in this colour. I wear this over one of my darker brown lipsticks and absolutely love the finish it gives! As the lipgoss is a summer collection it smells of coconut, I just want to eat it! I also got a small eye liner which I haven’t actually used yet so cant really review this item. But overall love everything I got in the Bourjois bronze kit.
When looking at one of the make-up stalls in town I noticed this Maybelline Gel Liner, I had never used a gel liner before but always wanted to try one so picked this one up. And I LOVE it. It took a while for me to get use to the application of this but using the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush helped me hugely. I think using a gel liner helps it to stay put all day without flaking in areas. I also think it makes it easier to create a winged eye liner effect.
After reading many blog posts and youtube videos on the Maybelline The Eraser Eye I had to go and buy it! I always used my normal concealer under my eyes and always found that by the end of the day it would crease. I have only used this once or twice so far but love the products. I know some people like to take the sponge of the top of the product but I think it helps to get an even layer of the product on. I know what your thinking, How UNHYGENIC?! but I know that I wont let anyone else use this product so I don’t mind too much. The colour is perfect for my skin and I think it leaves a healthy glow under my eyes.
A re-purchase that we all own in our make-up kits and that the Lasting Perfection concealer, this is one of the best drug store concealers I have used that cover what I need covering all day without having to re-conceal. It is a product which I will always keep stocked in my make-up bag and would definitely be devastated if they ever discontinue this.
This is one of my favourite things I bought this month and it is the Mac Hello Kitty limited edition collection. I have wanted one of these for ages and have kept my eyes pealed. I was looking on ebay and came across this and had to buy it, it has never been used and I only payed £7. This is the blush in Tahitian Sand. Everything about this product sends me into overdrive! I just absolutely love it and think I am going to find it very hard to use as I don’t want the hello kitty mark to rub off.
This is my absolute favourite product on the month this month and its the Maybelling Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. Who hasn’t looked at this product this month! I have the Benefit Porefessional and was just about to run out so thought I would give this a try as it I wayway cheaper. After a few uses of this I LOVE it! Itsnt not exactly the same as porefessional and you may need to use a little bit more of the product to see the results but as it is a lot cheaper I don’t mind. I have combination/oily skin and find this works really well. It has the same texture of the porefessional and I really do think this works just as well. I will need to use this product some more to make a real review on all aspects of the primer but will do that very soon! So watch out!
Thanks, cya x
