There's something about new make-up that just excites me. If you are a fellow make-up addict, then you'll know exactly what I mean! This post is somewhat of a 'collective haul' of beauty bits and bobs that I've accumulated recently, basically all of the new products that I'm trying out at the moment! So here it goes:
My lovely friend Lauren (click to read her amazing beauty blog) sent me 2 items from 'Wet n Wild', which is a US brand that has recently appeared in Ireland and sadly not in the UK yet! She sent me two of the most talked about palettes, the infamous walking on eggshells trio and the comfort zone 8 palette. I've already got my hands on these and used them a few times and they are awesome. I love the shades, I will forever be a neutral eye shadow kinda gal so these are perfect, the pigmentation is immense too. I decided to try Maybelline's brow drama sculpting mascara too, I remember seeing it on Lauren's blog and I was intrigued - so I'm excited to try that out! I got the shade dark blonde.
In terms of 'face' products I've been trying out two new foundations, both from Maybelline. First is the dream satin liquid foundation in light porcelain, which is actually quite dark despite the delicately pale shade name! Secondly, I've been trying (and loving) Maybelline's new Superstay Better Skin foundation which I gave an initial review of in this post. I also purchased another collection lasting perfection concealer, which I haven't used in months! I saw the slightly new packaging and thought I'd repurchase, I'm such a sucker for packaging and get lured in by the simplest of things. Finally, I wanted to try out some new mattifying face powders so I chose Seventeen's miracle matte pressed powder in the lightest shade which claims to give up to 16hrs oil free shine control!
Other new items include Avon's glow matte bronzer in light, which I am absolutely loving! It's a completely matte finish, pale enough to work on light skin tones and ideal for contouring and adding some colour into the face after applying foundation. I've also tried out Collection's Shimmer Shades bronzing/blush block which features 4 shades consisting of 2 bronze shimmers, a pale coral blush and a shimmering white highlight.
Lots of loveliness and shiny new packaging. Also, I'd just like to point out that I should be supervised in Boots and Superdrug, as I cannot cope with the amount of 3 for 2 offers going on at the moment.
