New to my makeup bag
Lets face it who doesn't like seeing what in peoples makeup bag? When any of my friends take out there makeup bag I love going through them seeing what products their using and seeing if I can spot any new products I could go and try. So with saying that I'm going to be doing this type of post maybe every month and showing you guys whats new to my makeup bag.
So firstly I'm going to show you my new makeup bag. Its from Benefit and you actually get it free when you get your makeup done in January (while stock lasts). I like it because its a good size for all products and brushes whatever I might need to bring with me that day.
So to start off with the products this first one is from Wet 'n' Wild and its one of there bronzers in the shade 'Reserve Your Cabana'. Okay so as you can see from the picture it is certainly not your typical bronzer shade and to be fair it does look more like a highlight. I picked this one up as I heard Diane Everett rave about it as one of her beauty budget favourites. The pan size almost double an average size pan so maybe not so gracious for travelling. I have been using this two ways, firstly as a very subtle highlight typically for daytime and also as a setting powder. When you see it first it looks slightly glittery but when applied its actually almost semi-matte in appearance. The product itself is creamy and easy to work with.
Now this is not going to be a highlight thats going to get you seen from space however sometimes a highlight that strong is just not appropriate (boo) but what it will do is create a natural glow to the skin giving an almost natural radiance. I have to say so far I'm very impressed with this one so far and it was only around €5.
Next up is a MAC lipstick. I am one of them late comers to the mac lip game but oh my god I am seriously obsessed!! I was up picking up a replacement for my all time favourite lipstick in the world which is 'Stone' where I stupidly brought out on a night out and lost it but anyways when I was in MAC another beautiful grey toned lipstick caught my eye called 'Really Me'. I mean I don't need to sit here and try to convenience you that these lipstick are good because we all know they are great but what I will tell you is this is a matte finish and if you pair it with MAC's 'Whirl' liner then you will have you very own pair of Kylie Jenner lips. (You can see both paired in the picture below)
Last but certainly not least is this new Isadora foundation. Its called the Cover Up Foundation & Concealer all in one. Okay so I'm not normally a lover of duo products simply because they don't ever really work but this one took me by surprise. I was sent this along with the press release in December wasn't to think much of it until I tried it. Now if you know me at all you will know I LOVE myself some full coverage foundation and my hopes were not high but boy was I wrong. Its full coverage but weightless, despite the fact its full coverage its moisturising on the skin so a great one for anyone with dry skin, its not a matte finish which I have to say I like in a foundation because you then have the option to set it matte if you wish or keep it satin/dewy. I have been a raving lunatic on snapchat urging people to try this foundation out and I'm urging you to do the same!
Ands thats a wrap!
Now that January is here to help catch up after Christmas I have tried to put myself on a spending ban... Lets see how long this lasts!
Until next time,
