L’Oreal La Palette Nude 02 Rose 

I tend to reach for the same eyeshadows and quite often my palettes go a little neglected. This L’Oreal Rose one is so pretty it has 10 shades in a mix of mattes and shimmers, I like that it has some dusky pinks and smokey purple tones. Not the colours I naturally gravitate towards but I am always impressed with how pretty they look when I am brave enough to wear them. The quality of these shadows is good but I really recommend using a primer as they don’t last very long without one. I forgot just how nice the colours are in this and I can’t wait to use them a little more. .

Rimmel Match Perfection

I spoke a little about this in my recent Foundation Collection Post and because I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis I have bottles that I forget about. This is such a great product for a daytime and I like that it feels hydrating on the skin and gives lovely flawless finish.

Korres Professional Liquid Eyeliner

This was such a let down, I love to wear black liquid liner & like it when the brush is precise and the colour jet black. The brush / nib on this was so hard, which made it difficult to get my liner neat. Each time I tried to use this I made a complete mess and had to redo my eye makeup. I thought the formula was too wet and took ages to dry down, also near impossible to do a half decent wing. The pigmentation is very black which was the only redeeming quality.

L’Oreal True Match Powder

I thought because I love the foundation from this line I might as well try out the powder & I have had this waiting to use for a while now. I have the shade rosy beige and it seems to be a good match. The packaging is quite bulky and feels a little cheap. I have used this a a couple of times and liked that it gave a buildable coverage and the powder feels smooth and light on my skin. It seems like a good setting powder and I like that it gives a nice even finish and it helps my skin look even toned.

NARS Orgasm Blush

Such an old faithful, I used to use this all the time before I discovered the beautiful Max Factor blushers. This is a really pretty peachy, pink with gold shimmer. I think its brightens up the face and adds a touch of highlighter to your blush. The light reflects off the gold shimmer and gives you the most beautiful glow. I am glad I looked this out to use over Spring / Summer its the perfect warm weather blush.

Primark PS Love Lift & Curl Mascara

As far as affordable mascaras go this isn’t half bad, its not amazing but I will use it as a daytime mascara and get some use out of it. I love the bright purple packaging and the rubber wand is flexible and gets right down to the root of your lashes. I have been wearing it layered on top of my Eye of Horus mascara, that one gives my lashes length and the Primark one thickens them up and adds volume. They make a good pair.

Clinique Colour Pop Lip Colour & Primer

These Clinique Colour Pop Lippies are ideal for me. They are hydrating, glossy and feel so soft on the lips. The colour selection is impressive too, they come in 23 gorgeous shades. I have a few but this Nude Pop one is a perfect shade for everyday, even if I am wearing little or no makeup this looks great on my lips. These feel like you have put a lipbalm on first then added your lippie on top, they’re fool proof and give your lips a good amount of both hydration and colour. These are one of my favourite product discoveries of 2016.
