Current Make-up Favourites!

Hi Peeps,

I know it’s been forever since I blogged but my business is really starting to take off and as I am a one-man band I have been extremely busy. Today I thought I’d ease back into blogging by posting about the cosmetics that have really been floating my boat this past month. Some of them are luxury beauty, but a lot of them are from the drugstore. I’ll do them in order that I put them on my face, so lets jump in….

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….

Wonderful

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 Boots.com

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 Boots.com

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.

Rouge Edition Velvet autumnswatch rouge edition

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 Boots.com

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

I hope you enjoyed it!

Paint My Pout – Bourjois Edition

 

Hi Ladies,

I know it’s been a few days now since I did a ‘Paint my Pout’ Blog but things have been kinda hectic with the Business. I thought I’d do a Paint my Pout Special as I went to Boots Yesterday and picked up a trio of fantastic lip colours and I really wanted to share them with you guys. I don’t know if any of you are fans of Bourjois but they have some absolutely stunning lip colours that have just come out, and they are all matte Glosses. Now I adore anything matte affect whether it’s shadow, lips or nails I just love it. The Glosses I’m blogging about are from their Rouge Edition Velvet collection and all three are new shades to this Collection.

I just want to add that all Bourjois cosmetics are currently 3 for 2 at boots and when you make a 3 for 2 purchase you get a free pair of sunglasses in a case 🙂

The First Lip Colour I got was 03 Hot Pepper, which is a bright medium toned Red colour (unusual for me I know  – lol ). The one thing I love about matte lip gloss is that you can make it as subtle or as intense as you like simply by layering it. These products smell amazing too.

The Second Lip Colour is 05 Olé flamingo! This is a stunning hot pink colour. I think pink is one of those colours that just looks so good in a matte effect. Another aspect of this product that I want to mention is just how silky soft the formula is. It left my lips feeling super soft and the silky finish is just lush!

The third and final colour is 07 Nude-ist. This is probably my favourite colour, which is really unusual for me because I just don’t do nude colours. This is more of a dusky pink and just looks really natural on my lips. Most “natural’ lipsticks always look really pale on my lips and make me look washed out but this was nothing like that. Finally a Natural pink lipstick I am happy to wear!!!

The final aspect I love about these glosses are the tubes. I just think they just look so cute and classy. I think it may be love at first sight for these Lip Colours.!!

Well Done Bourjois once again you failed to disappoint 🙂 !
