Boots and Superdrug Haul

Hey guys! just a quick post on a few things I picked up from Boots and Superdrug a few days ago.

First off I picked up these two masks from L'Oreal and Garnier from Boots, I've heard alot of good things about them so can't wait to try them out.

I also restocked on my favourite mascara and concealer from Maybelline, I've lost count of how may of these I've gone through over the last year, another favourite I repurchased was the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Warm Beige - this is like my holy grail everyday powder.

Lorac Pro Palette - Review

This palette is an oldie but a goodie, I've had mine for quite a while now and I'd say it's one of my holy grail products, I reach for it on an almost daily basis. It's great for creating an everyday light smokey brown eye look to a really glam going out eye look. My favourite shades from the palette are probably Taupe, Sable, Nude, Gold, Pewter and Garnet.

I've already hit pan on on Taupe and Sable and my palette kinda looks pretty beat up right now because of how much it's been used. Taupe is a great transition shade and I use sable and espresso to really define and darken the crease, and nude is such a great shade to highlight the browbone

Ben Nye Banana Powder - Review

Hey guys! Its been a few days since I last posted on here but I went away to London for the week to get away, see my friends and just chill out for a bit so I didn't really get a chance to write any new posts. But I'm back with another post and today I wanted to review the Ben Nye Banana powder for you guys. I've been using this powder for a few months now and thought why not write a review on it.

Kiko Haul

Hey guys, just a quick post to show you some things I picked up from Kiko a few days ago. I was just walking past my local store when I saw that they had a sale on so I decided to pop in and see if there was anything I might like.

NYX Eyeshadow Base - Review

Hey, guys just a quick review today on the NYX eyeshadow base. I picked this up on a whim a few months ago, I'd been on the hunt for a flesh toned eyeshadow base (other than MAC soft ocre) for a while, so when I saw this in Boots I decided to pick it and give it a try. The product comes in a plastic jar with a screw top lid, which is quite lightweight and doesn't take up much space in my makeup drawers, and you get around 7g/0.25oz of product.

Favourite Drugstore Foundation & Primer - Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless

Hi guys, today's review is on my all time favourite drugstore Foundation and Primer. I've always found it difficult to get a great colour match when it comes to drugstore foundations, back when I was in college I would just grab whatever shade I thought matched me and went with it (not the smartest move to be honest), and let me just say it did not look good. The foundations were never dark enough or they didn't have the right undertones for my complexion and I was always left looking a little grey - I'd then try to fix this by applying bronzer all over my face - it was a mess guys it was actually a mess.

But then I came across the Maybelline Fit Me foundation - the original one - and I think it was the first time I found a drugstore foundation that actually matched my skin! I was in love, this foundation worked pretty well for me at the time because my skin was going through a dry phase - the best thing about this was that it didn't cling to any dry patches and left me skin with a dewy finish. But my skin started changing and became less dry and more oily/combination and I felt that this foundation just wasn't working for me anymore, so I bit the bullet and got colour matched at MAC and bought the Studio Fix Fluid - which has become one of my holy grail foundations and something  I have repurchased multiple times. But I was still on the lookout for another drugstore foundation that matched me as well as the Fit Me.

Favourite Drugstore/Affordable Cream Contour Products

Hi guys, today's post is all about my favourite cream contouring products at the moment. All the products mentioned in this post are all fairly affordable, nothing high end (I will however be doing a post reviewing my favourite high end contouring products at some point so keep an eye out for that).

Kiko Cream Crush Lasting Colour Eyeshadow - Review

Hi guys, today's review is on the Kiko Cream Crush Lasting Colour Eyeshadow in the shade 05. I picked this eyeshadow up on a whim when I first saw it because it was such a pretty shimmery colour and I hadn't really heard much about these eyeshadows so I thought it would be great if I could test it out and review it for you guys.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish - Cheeky Bronze

Hi, today's post is a review on the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Cheeky Bronze. The MAC MSFs are probably one of my favourite products from the brand - Soft and Gentle being one of my most used and loved of them all (review of this will be up soon as well, hopefully).

Cheeky Bronze is a lovely warm golden shade that suits a wide range of skintones. I love applying a light layer of this all over my face to give a subtle healthy looking glow to the skin. I also love using this as a blush when I want to go for a really bronzey sunkissed look. I always say start off with a light layer and slowly build the colour up to prevent it from looking cakey or patchy.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Hi guys, just a quick review on the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge today. I've been using this for a few months now and I've found the best way to use this is to run it under cool water and squeeze out the excess then use the damp sponge to blend out my base products - foundation, concealer and cream contour -  I also like using it to bake under my eyes and under my contour to sharpen it up.

Now starting off with the stick highlighters, I have 3 favourites that I like to use on a day to day basis. The No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter, The MUA bronzed shimmer stick and the Kiko Radiant Touch highlighter in the shade 100.
