On a recent trip to Boots, I found myself browsing the NYX make-up counter and ended up picking up one of the Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liners in the shade ‘Vivid Violet’.  The Vivid Brights range of liquid liners has been out for a while but I haven’t looked at them before.  I’m glad I picked one up to try as I love it – relatively inexpensive, easy to apply and vivid, high impact colour in liquid form!

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!

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).  I picked up one of the new blushers from the limited edition ‘Metal Fusion’ collection in the shade 05 Outrageous Tangerine.  I am glad I got this blusher as it looks so beautiful and glowy on the cheeks!

Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 ‘Green Me Collection’: 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earlier this week, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post).  I picked up one of the eyeshadow palettes – 02 Feisty Saffron – which is part of Kiko’s limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection.  I thought it would be fun to do a more in-depth post on this eyeshadow palette, particularly since I think it is a great smaller and cheaper alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette and Tarte’s Toasted Palette.

Benefit’s new blusher, Galifornia, is one of my favourite new go-to products for giving me a little ‘pick-me-up’ and that holiday feeling.  This blusher adds a fresh, golden-pink glow to my cheeks and transports me to tropical climes with its fresh tropical scent.

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Revlon Ulta HD Gel Lipcolors (760 Vineyard and 705 Dawn)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some time ago, I watched a You Tube video by Emilynoel83 where she recommended the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors.  I have tried out – and loved – some of the products she has recommended in the past and so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of these lipsticks.  The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors are a relatively new addition to the Revlon lipstick line-up.  I picked up two shades: 705 Dawn, a neutral rose with a slight sheen and 760 Vineyard, a medium mauve-plum.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Debenhams recently launched the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette online and I just couldn’t resist getting it.  I don’t have any of the other Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes but this one really appealed to me.   The palette is filled with a mixture of brightly coloured and neutral metallic eyeshadows, as well as some matte shades for blending.  It just looks soooo beautiful and it smells incredible too!
