A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post).  As part of the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection, there are powder highlighters which are also available in the permanent Kiko range.  I already have the Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne, which was included in the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection.  This highlighter gives such a beautiful, natural glow to the face that I think it is well worth a post!

Sneak Peek: Boots Make-up 3 for 2 Haul

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, I spent some time browsing the make-up counters in Boots as I really fancied checking out the new Spring time offerings.  Boots had a ‘3 for 2’ deal on and I ended up picking up various new make-up items.  I got some products from ranges I have tried before and other items which are new to me.

I am planning on writing more detailed posts on each of these items in the coming weeks once I have had a chance to try them out.  Look out for posts coming soon!

Over the past year, Bare Minerals has been launching various new products, including the Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzers.  I recently wrote about this bronzer as part of my ‘Make-up For Long and Busy Days’ post (click here to read more) as it is one of my favourite products for adding natural warmth and definition to my face. 

I’m fairly new to using bronzer and so I wanted something that would look natural, be easy to use and add some subtle warmth to the face.  This particular bronzer ticks all of those boxes for me. I thought it would be fun to write a more detailed post about this product, as I think it is such a natural and easy to use bronzer!

Kiko recently launched their Holiday 2017 Collection, titled ‘Arctic Holiday’ and includes three baked blushes.  I couldn’t resist picking up two of the blushes as they were soooo pretty.  The products themselves, the packaging and the outer box are so beautifully presented and look lovely.  I think these blushes would make wonderful gifts for any make-up lover or as a special treat for yourself.

I’ve been looking for a new colourless setting powder for quite a long time now.  EmilyNoel83 (I love watching her YouTube videos) uploaded a video a few months ago featuring her favourite natural face powders.  The Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder was given a mention and I thought, ‘Why not try it?’.  

I tried the powder over a foundation which I love but doesn’t have great staying power (I usually need a touch-up mid-morning) and wow!!! After applying my make-up early in the morning (around 7:15am), I didn’t feel the need for any powder touch-ups until later in the afternoon around 4pm.  That’s right – 4pm!!!
