Popped into the shops for a peek at the weekend only to be suckered in my the various deals at Boots and Superdrug- before I knew it I had a lovely collection of new products escorting me home. Grabbed a few products that the blogging world is raving about and a few other pretty things that caught my eye.
First up, eye shadows, it was buy1get1half price on No7 so I picked up their Trio Eye Shadow Palette, Good Earth and the single Matte Maroon. It has been a while since I have used No7 and one of their eye shadow trios used to be a favourite so looking forward to playing with these. Nice neutral colours in the trio, one with a bit of shimmer, all compact together for easy travel if needed. Think adding the Matte Maroon with the trio will create a fab smokey eye.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in On & On Bronze: You will have no doubt read the countless reviews on this as well, figured I’d find out what all the fuss is about.
In terms of lips I picked up:
Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss: Another one I decided to jump on the bandwagon with. When I tried it out boyfriend said whooo peach, so the scent has received the kiss of approval.
Maybelline Colorsensational Shine Gloss in Berry, Not usually the colour I am drawn to but it swatched really nice and there was an offer on Maybelline products. Have been wearing it quite a bit since I bought it so will be a full review soon.
L’oreal Glam Shine Satin Splash: I have wanted to try these for a while, since a few folks suggested they were dupes for a similar YSL lip product. Went for quite a natural colour so can wear for work.
Finally, I got a free lipstick voucher through my Boots advantage card after my last purchase at Clinique so got the Long Last Lipstick in All heart, as I said don’t usually go for red lips so will be a bit different for me.
If you caught my last post you will know I love my RealTechniques Powder brush, so when I saw that Superdrug had the range at Buy1get1halfprice, I decided to add to my collection. Picked up the Shading brush and Blush brush. My first impression? They are both fab!
L’Oreal le blush in Sandalwood Rose; felt I should get a new blush to go with my new brush! Recommended for fair skin tones, this a lovely pink shade. Also, I have just discovered there is a wee compartment underneath the blush with a brush and more importantly a mirror- fab extra for make-up on the go
Maybelline Baby Skin, I know another hyped up product but all you bloggers made me buy it! I love my Benefit Porefessional, but a cheaper alternative would be good for my wallet so decided to give it a go. I will report back!
Botanics Hydrating Eye Cream– have been thinking that perhaps I should start worrying about taking better care of my eye areas, sooner I start operation no-wrinkles the better? This one promises a nourishing cream that hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines to reveal more radiant skin.
Finally, I picked up on nail polish Maybelline Color Show in Burgundy Kiss which is actually a gift for a friend. She is usually drawn to dark navy/blacks and I thought a dark maroon would be something a wee bit different but in keeping with what she likes
