Coverage Foundation SPF 15, £5.90 | 30ml

Rich in pigment, this non-oily cream textured foundation offers a natural finish that never appears heavy on the skin. The formula is also dispensed with a pump. This offers incredible coverage without being thick or sitting heavy on the skin. It is so easy to blend and with 21 shades to pick from (although not all available on QVC), you should have no trouble being perfectly matched to your ideal colour.

The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation & Coverage Foundation contain SPF 15, achieved with Titanium Dioxide and without the use of chemical sunscreens or nano-particles

The Ordinary Primer

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer (30ml)

This blurring, smoothing face primer that acts as the perfect base for following formulas, it really gives you that soft focus finish and feels weightless on the skin. It is a very good primer for lessening the appearance of fine lines and imperfections too. This is a great addition to my skincare/makeup routine and helps keep my makeup looking it’s best and means it just looks better for longer.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% B5 (30ml)

This Acid is a lightweight hydrating formula infused with three differed hyaluronic compounds. It combines 3 types of hyaluronic acid at various molecular weights to hydrate the skin on multiple levels, with Vitamin B5 to amplify surface hydration. Moisture is more easily retained leading to a more healthier and smoother skin surface. This is some seriously good stuff and I can’t believe it is only £5.90!

New In My Beauty Stash #5

Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

New products in my makeup bag 2017

I thought I would share a few new products that have made their way into my beauty stash, some of which I’ve been using for a couple of months and one that just came through my letter box last week (but I’m already head over heels in love) can you guess which product that it?

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 30ml

I have a post coming up in a few weeks talking a little more in depth about my favourite products from Deciem but I wanted to put this particular product in this post mostly because I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a product as much as this one or seen such incredible results as quickly. I have been using this Caffeine Solution everyday since I received it back in April & I simply adore it. I would say the best way to describe it is as a lightweight serum that has a slight tackiness to it which once applied feels weightless yet hydrating and soothing on the skin.

You apply it to around your orbital bone (around your eye area) and it helps reduce puffiness, reduce dark circles and it has actually reduced a patch of pigmentation I had to the edge of my eye.

  • Caffeine – Constricts blood vessels to reduce discolouration and swelling.
  • EGCG – Sourced from green tea, EGCG has strong anti-inflammatory properties, and is also proven to reactivate dying skin cells.

It is without a doubt my favourite product from The Ordinary & that is saying something because I’ve tried quite a few amazing products from this range but this solution has visibly reduced uneven skintone and my eyes have never looked as healthy. It is like liquid sleep. I can’t sing it’s praises enough but if you did need any more convincing to try it yourself the price tag might just sway you – this 30ml is only £5.80! Now all I ask is that you don’t buy it in bulk, leave me a bottle or two.

Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara £21.00

This is the latest mascara release from Lancome & I am usually a huge Lancome Mascara fan but this didn’t really cut it for me. I get that Lancome (I think) are trying to appeal more to a younger market with this Monsieur Big Collection as the packaging isn’t as sleek or luxurious as you’d expect from Lancome and the promise of up to 12x volume and 24 hour wear is a little far fetched. I found the formula too wet and hard to apply to coats without it looking clumpy. One coat gives you a good amount of volume and it is a very ultra black formula but for £21, I think I will stick to my beloved Hypnose or the Doll Eyes.

Batiste 2 in 1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner

To be honest I prefer the stand alone dry shampoo, I wasn’t entirely sure how to use this for the best results. I found that if I put too much on my roots it made them look a little greasy & If I sprayed too much through the length it made it feel icky. With it costing more than the actual dry shampoo I would say stick to that don’t over complicate things with adding a dry conditioner to the mix. The only plus of this product for me was the fruity, Summery scent, which I really liked.

Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro £28.00

I’m quite happy with my brow routine at the moment so I haven’t actually been using this on them, I have been using it as an eyeshadow primer & also on it’s own all over the lid. So the Eye & Brow Maestro comes in 8 shades and it has a cream formula which is also waterproof so for me it has been working so well on the eye. This formula doesn’t crease and it stays put all day long. I have the shade 05 Auburn which is a gorgeous as a soft taupe / brown shade. I do love a cream shadow simply because they are lightweight on the lid, this formula does not crease and their effortless to apply (I tend to use my finger to blend). I am smitten with this.

New Urban Decay Heat Palette

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer

I bought two shades of this in a blog sale and OMG I’ve never (ever, ever) tried such a full coverage concealer. This stuff is seriously full coverage and waterproof. That being said you’d think at first glance that it would be too thick to use under your eye, worrying that it would gather in all those pesky fine lines (which you do not want to draw attention too). If use use just the smallest amount and I mean a slither of product and really blend it in you have yourself a concealer that will cover anything and last all day without accentuating fine lines or looking cakey. It’s infused with high-performance pigments and anti-aging peptides, vitamins, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidant.

This concealer is great at covering anything you could name, blemishes, redness, dark circles and even help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It has changed my life. I have found myself just using this in the areas that need coverage and not even reaching for a foundation. My makeup routine just got a whole lot quicker.

Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette £.39.50

The internet has been going crazy for this new release from Urban Decay, I really like that they’re always adding to their Naked range and some of my most worn and best loved palettes are from the Naked Collection. I adore the Naked Ultimate Basics (all matte) and the original Naked Palette is still my absolute favourite (apart from the fuzzy packaging. So this new addition to the Naked family is a beauty, I feel like it has been very well thought out, you get 12 warm toned shades that are perfect for every season. You get a stunning selection of warm earthy shades with everything from amber toned neutrals including warm browns and burnt oranges to deep red browns and glimmering coppers.

  • Chaser – light nude matte
  • Ounce – ivory shimmer
  • Sauced – soft terracotta matte
  • Low Blow – brown matte
  • Lumbre – copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift
  • He Devil – burnt red matte
  • Dirty Talk – metallic burnt red
  • Scorched – metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer
  • Cayenne – deep terra-cotta matte
  • En Fuego – burgundy matte
  • Ashes – deep reddish-brown matte
  • Ember – deep metallic copper-burgundy

Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette Urban Decay

Urban Decay Heat Palette

Ember / En Fuego / Dirty Talk / He Devil / Lumbre 

As with all the Naked Palettes, there is a nice mix of finishes and textures including mattes, micro shimmers and two smooth buttery light base shades. Urban Decay eyeshadows are always fantastic quality, richly pigmented and easy to blend as this palette does not disappoint. So say that I’m thrilled to bits to have this in my collection would be an understatement.

So what is new in your makeup bag lately? Let me know if you have tried any of the products I’ve mentioned.
