I want to apologise firstly for the photos! They definitely aren’t perfect but I was just getting the hang of my new camera and haven’t been able to take anymore. The other day I went shopping with my bestie and treated myself to some goodies!
L’oreal Lip Paints in Red Actually (matte red) and Pink Lady (laquer): I was instantly intrigued by these and had to pick up two colours. I have tried Pink Lady and the colour reflects that in the tube beautifully. I absolutely love the formula – its got a shine to it, without being overly glossy and lasts well on the lips. I have a hen-do next weekend and I will be trying out the red shade then – brave or stupid, you tell me! I feel like L’oreal are really stepping up their game at the minute and I’ve been so impressed with their current releases. L’oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation: I don’t often wear really heavy foundation but this really impressed me with the claims on the advert, and like a little sucker, I was pulled right in. I opted for their lightest shade in the range after swatching and cannot wait to try this! L’oreal blending sponge: This was a free gift when you bought three items. I am yet to try it but will report back (I haven’t seen great things currently so can’t say I’m in a rush to try it!)
MUA eye shadow palette in Rusted Wonders: This palette is bloody beautiful. The shades are gorgeous and swatched on the fingertips, they are so beautifully pigmented. However, they are really difficult to transfer onto the lids. I think they will be really good for foiling with a setting spray and packing onto the lid. Hoping to get a makeup tutorial up with this soon for you all! NYX Blotting Sheets: I never really bought into the idea of blotting sheets until recently. I got a packet of the DHC blotting sheets in a beautybox last year and found them great for blotting any oil during the day – especially at work. I work in an air conditioned office which seems to make my face SO greasy, so I snapped up some sheets from NYX for my office drawers. The Wet Brush: This brush is a life changer. I actually spoke about it in my February Favourites. I have several of their standard brushes and managed to snag a fold up brush for my handbag for a measley £1.50 (reduced from £14!) Since then I scoured every Boots store in the nearest vicinity and got another three, albeit for £3.50 each. If you see these around I highly recommend picking one up. This brush glides through my damaged hair, wet or dry, removing any knots with ease.
