Autumn Make up: Part One

Hi Ladies,

Last weekend I took myself off to Boots to see what autumn makeup releases are currently available. There are so many nice new product releases, it was really hard to pick just a few (I have no self control when it comes to makeup). I ended up buying five products across a variety of brands, here are my purchases….


First of all I needed a new mascara and I have had my eye on the Wonder’Full Argan Oil Mascara by Rimmel for a little while now so I thought it only fair I snap it up! I love the packaging of this mascara. Shimmering brown really does make me think of Autumn and that’s the main reason it caught my eye.

At first I was struck by the super flexible wand, this is the first mascara I have purchased with this flexibility and if I’m honest I didn’t really think that it made much difference to the application. The wand is great for separating lashes though! Due to it’s name, I expected this mascara to be plumping but I didn’t find that at all, I thought this was more of a separating mascara. This is something that this mascara does really well!! I will use this for daywear but I would need something more lash boosting for special occasions.

Wonder’Full Mascara is currently £7.99 at

Secondly I bought the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 380 Dark Night Water L-oops! I love this lipstick! It reminds me of Rebel by MAC. A gorgeous deep berry colour, this is perfect for Autumn/Winter. This lipstick is extremely pigmented and with added vitamin A, C & E it left my lips feeling lovely and soft.

Again I loved the deep purple packaging it will look great in my autumn collection.

This Lipstick is currently £6.49 at

L'Oreal LumiereL'oreal open


The third product I picked up was the L’Oreal Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in 502 Quartz Fúme. At first I just swatched this on the back of my hand and as I walked around the store I just couldn’t stop looking it at it. This extreme pigment comes with a high shimmer and is great worn on it’s own or blended as part of an overall look.

I teamed it with a shimmering green and loved it. This eye shadow is currently retailing at £5.49 at Boots.

The fourth product was Bourjois Rouge edition velvet matte finish in 08 Grand Cru. I have four of these lipsticks and I adore every last one of them. I am a huge fan of Matte everything, especially lips and this is a beautiful Blue based Red.

This lipstick gave long lasting colour and applies with a silky texture. I love it so much! These lipsticks are £8.99 each or are on offer at 2 for £14.00.

Brickbrick nail

The Last Item I bought was the Maybelline colour show nail varnish in 465 Brick shimmer. This is the most beautiful shimmering Red/Brown shade. It is the perfect autumnal nail varnish. The formula is nice and rich and goes on smoothly. I am currently rocking this colour on my fingers & my toes.

Colour Show Nail Varnishes are Currently £2.99 at

So that was my first batch of Autumn Make up, with no doubt more purchases coming soon.

I hope you enjoyed it!
