Hello, my Loves x
For my first post of 2018, I wanted to share with you all some of my most recent makeup purchases, as well as sharing with you some of my Christmas makeup gifts! I hope you enjoy!
Now, this has to be one of the most hyped products of 2017, and I was so excited when I recently found it at my local Superdrug!
Everything about the palette is beautiful, from the rose gold font to the range of highlights available, to which the shades are so diverse and there is one to suit everyone’s personal preference! My particular favourites are of course the gold shades, but I am also immediately drawn to the bronze, lilac and pink shades, which I think will also be really nice to use as eyeshadows.
I can already see this being one of my favourite products of the year!
If you are a reoccurring reader of my blog, you will be aware of how much I love illuminating primers, with my favourite one being the L’oreal Lumi Magique Priming Base, but I thought it was time to try out something new!
I’ve heard a lot of people talk about how amazing the NYX primers are, so I decided to pick up their ‘Born to Glow’ primer which is very similar in colour to the Lumi Magique, although it is much thicker and tackier inconsistency. This allowed my other base products to buff into my skin easily, whilst improving the longevity of them. The pearlescent glow shone through my foundation, and I can really see myself using this a lot through Spring and Summer!
After a month of festive parties and late nights, a heavy duty concealer was very much needed, and makeup revolution have created the perfect one! I picked up the shade C5, which is the perfect yellow toned shade which is perfect for banishing my dark circles.
Although this may have a thick consistency when buffed into the skin with a beauty sponge, it gives you flawless coverage, without settling into fine lines or creasing. This is defiantly one of the best concealers on the high street, and they also have a huge shade range, so I am sure you will find the perfect one for you.
Now although I love my eyeshadow palettes, my collection of single eyeshadows is beginning to become a lot bigger, with my particular favourites being the NYX Hot Singles. The pigmentation of them blows me away, and although they are affordable shimmer shadows, I don’t even have to apply them with a damp flat brush to be able to have a decent amount of product on my lid.
The shade ‘innocent’ is a beautiful champagne shade, which is not only perfect for when highlighting the inner corner and brow bone, but I think it will be stunning when creating a halo eye!
I love KIKO as a brand, and I was kindly gifted some of their products by my boyfriends family for Christmas, including this beautiful plum shadow. I wore this on Christmas Day, to which I blended a warm brown shadow into my crease, and then packed this on the rest of my lid and I loved the result! The formula of these shadows are buttery soft and blend beautifully, and I can’t wait to see how it works when applied with a damp flat brush to create more of an impact!
I will defiantly be picking up more from the range!
I love wearing shadows along my bottom lashline, particularly bronze shades as they really make my green eyes pop. In order to improve the longevity of wearing colour in my lash line, I decided to pick up a bronzey eyeliner, and the NYX Slide on Eye Pencils are definitely the best ones on the market.
When I tightlined my eyes with this creamy liner, it made my eye looks so much more intense and it also lasted all day! I also have my eye on the shade Brown Perfection, a beautiful chocolate brown shade.
This is the ultimate pink lip combo! They both have a creamy matte formula and when paired together my lipstick lasts all day, and the shades really enhance my eye colour and skin tone. I’ve definitely been inspired to buy and wear pink toned lips!
RRP: £4.90 and £6.90
