I’ve been pretty quiet on here recently because life got in the way, but I am back now and ready to throw everything I have into making this blog better. ~So let’s begin~
Here’s what I was loving in August:
URBAN DECAY – ALL NIGHTER SETTING SPRAY
Until now I’ve never actually tried this setting spray because I’ve always been in the mind set of “OMG I can’t spend £24 on a setting spray” BUT I had a little #youdoyou moment and thought what the heck. I was really nervous to try this because I was so desperate for it to live up to the high standards everyone had set but after a trip to London and back, I noticed a huge difference in how my make up lasted. It didn’t look AS good as when I first did my make up because I was a hot sweaty mess but it lasted a lot longer than I was expecting.
MAC STUDIO FIX FOUNDATION – NW10
Once again this is a first time purchase for me. Just like with the setting spray, I was always put off buying MAC make up because of the pricing. I mean, £26 for a foundation is ridiculous.
We were lucky enough to have our make up done by a MAC make up artist for my Brother’s wedding at the start of August and this was the first time I had EVER used anything from MAC. I loved how the foundation looked and the colour matched my skin perfectly – which I was so nervous about because I’ve heard so many horror stories about MAC and their poor colour matching. After much persuasion from my fellow groomsmaid Jodie ~thanks hun~, I made the purchase and I’m so glad I did.
This foundation lasts a lot longer than any other I’ve tried before. Obviously no foundation lasts all day but I’ve found that I don’t have to top it up after a couple of hours like I do with my normal foundation.
L’OREAL PARIS UNLIMITED MASCARA
SHOCK HORROR another blogger has bought this mascara. This has been all over my Instagram feed for months and I finally found out what the fuss is all about.
In my personal opinion, this is the best mascara I’ve tried in a long time. It leaves my lashes looking extra long and I love the shape of the brush. I’ve read a million reviews about the packaging but I don’t see the problem with it – yes the wand is pretty gimmicky but it definitely comes in handy.
L’OREAL BROW ARTIST POMADE
I’ve never really used eye brow pomade before, I’m normally a pencil kinda girl but I thought I’d give this a go and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. The colour is a perfect match for my brows and it just adds a little more definition. When it comes to eyebrows, I don’t go OTT with product, I just like a little extra colour to fill them out a bit so this is perfect as you can do as little or as much as you want.
L’OREAL LA VIA EN GLOW HIGHLIGHTING PALETTE – WARM GLOW
Can you tell that Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer on L’Oreal products??
I was in desperate need a for a new highlighter palette as my EXTREMELY old Revolution one was falling apart – the lid had even fallen off so it was definitely time to try something new. I went for the warm glow because I just found that the colours in the Cool Glow palette were too bright for me. I prefer a more subtle highlight and not a bright white sweating highlight look.
ZOEVE SILK FINISH BRUSH (102) – ROSE GOLDEN
ZOVEA CONCEALER BUGGER BRUSH (142) – ROSE GOLDEN
I’ve wanted to try Zoeva brushes for a while now because I’ve heard so many great things about them and after weeks of umming and ahhing I finally added them to my basket.
I used the Silk Finish Brush when I first tried my MAC foundation at home and they work so well together. The brush just blends every last bit of the foundation into my skin and leaves it looking flawless without leaving streak marks or bristles on my skin. The same goes for the Concealer Buffer Brush, it blends my concealer so perfectly into the skin and you can’t even tell where you used it.
