Over the last little while, I have been trying not to buy new makeup, except what I actually need....I think that lasted for about three days. The problem is that I love trying out new products. There is something beautiful in trying something out, falling in love, and adding it to your makeup collection. Here are some of the things I've been trying out recently!
The first, is this beautiful red TopShop eyeliner I won before I went away, from the In The Light Of Style giveaway! The eyeliner colour is a beautiful deep red - just gorgeous! The consistency is very creamy and easy to use. What I love most about this, is that it lasts well throughout the day. I hate having to worry about if my makeup needs touch ups, so this is perfect!
Secondly, I picked up a few things for Halloween this year! The Fantasy Makers cream eyeshadows are perfect for my costume! I haven't had a chance to try them all out properly yet, but there are some really great colours in this set. Lots of red, gold, black, and all of them with tons of shimmer! I also bought a fantastic set of false eyelashes for the occasion. They are really dramatic and fun! I am so excited to get all dressed up for Halloween this year!
Next, I decided to try Maybelline's Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara because I heard some great things about it! I've been using it for the last week and it's a really great drugstore mascara. Mascara is something I usually splurge on, but this is a really good alternative. What I like about this, is that the colour is a really intense black, it dries quickly, and adds a lot of volume. The wand is a really interesting shape, and I find it works well on the upper lashes, but not the lower lashes. Overall, this is a really great mascara for the price!
I also picked up a new Rimmel quad. The colours are quite light, as you can see from the swatches. I chose this because I don't have a lot of really soft, pastel colours. This quad creates a really romantic and pretty look!
Lastly, I picked up Bonnebell's Gel Bronze, Sally's powder blush in Fawn, and Gosh's Shocking Coral lipstick.
The Gel Bronze is actually a really nice product. Since I bought it, I've been adding it over my foundation and it creates a really pretty, dewy, sun-kissed look! It has a subtle shimmer as well, which looks great on the skin!
I am IN LOVE with Sally's powder blush in Fawn. It is such a pretty, warm colour. The product is very pigmented, so it doesn't take much to really pull a look together! The colour is a really warm brown, with hints of pink. The texture is so silky and beautiful. I love this so much!
The Shocking Coral Gosh lipstick I ended up buying because I just fell in love with the colour. I've been looking for a coral with more pink than orange, to add to my collection, and this was perfect! I absolutely love the colour! It is really smooth on the lips and very pigmented! It is perfect for a bold, statement lip!
