I have re-discovered a foundation that I have had for quite a while. I used it a few weeks ago and loved it! Its the Bourjois City Radiance Foundation. I love how natural it looks on the skin, doesn’t feel sticky at all or like I have foundation on my skin. I normally don’t wear foundation because of how it feels on my skin, but this you can’t even feel it. I find my skin has such a gorgeous glow, you can build up the coverage but it still looking natural. It’s beautiful.
Recently, I have purchased the By Terry Ombre Blackstar. I got mine in the colour Frozen Quartz, its so beautiful. It glides onto the skin perfectly, doesn’t tug at your eye, so easy to blend out. All I do it apply this to my lid, blend it out with a big fluffy blending brush and thats it. Throughout the day it does not budge, no crease’s or anything. You don’t need to use a primer with this product either, which makes my life a little easier.
I thought I would try out a Sleek blush as I haven’t before. I know Sleek products are quite pigmented so I was a bit careful with it. But I love this colour, I got mine in Pomegranate, it is a bit darker to what I am used to but, its gorgeous on the skin and perfect for autumn.
I never used to use brow pencils because I didn’t like how it looked, but I thought I would try the Soap and Glory 2-in-1 Brow Pencil and Brush. Its so easy and I think it looks a lot more natural. The brush gets rid of any harsh lines which is perfect. I know a lot of people love the Anastasia Brow Wiz, I’ve never tried it but it seems to be a lot similar to the Soap and Glory one but a lot cheaper.
I have recently got a sample of the Benefit Gimme Brow for my brows and its really good. It just sets my brows in place of the whole day. I am definitely going to buy the full size of it.
I’ve always loved Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks. I find they last so well, they do fade slightly throughout the day but then every lipstick does. I absolutely love the colour’s ’01’ and ’30’. I always get compliment when I wear these lipsticks. I have unfortunately lost my ’30’ lipstick but I will be re-purchasing another one.
Kathleen Lights recommended a few e.l.f. brushes so I thought I would get some and try them out. I have never tried e.l.f. brushes before but I am really impressed. The brush I particularly love is the Small Tapered Brush, its perfect for setting your under eye powder and for conturing. I could never get the hang of contouring but with this brush makes it ten times easier.
Onto skin care, I got a sample of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and I loved it so I got the full size. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and super smooth, without it being harsh. It says on the bottle ‘Cleanses and gently exfoliates for smoother, clearer skin’ and that is exactly what it does. Once a week I will use it with my Clarisonic and my skin has never felt better.
