Hands up who is trying to make a conscious effort to cut down on their impulse spending as we approach the Christmas season? However, needs must in the beauty blogging world, and I had to replenish a few ‘make-up must haves’.
The Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (transparent) is an essential item in my make-up bag. I have pretty normal skin but I do like to lightly dust my t-zone throughout the day as it can sometimes get a little oily. It doesn’t make the skin look or feel cakey, yet keeps unwanted shine at bay.
I have already reviewed the Garnier Simply Essentials Eye Make up Remover here. This bottle of goodness is unbelievable at removing stubborn waterproof mascara. Simply shake the two solutions together to mix, soak a cotton pad, hold on each eye for approximately 15-20 seconds and gently wipe away - no rubbing, tugging or pulling needed.
I religiously apply winged liner on a daily basis, so I am always on the hunt to find a better version of the NYX Liquid Eyeliner BEL06 (favourite so far). I am a big lover of the Revlon Colorstay range (especially their foundations) so I am looking forward to testing this out. I was initially drawn in by the slim pen-like packaging, fine nib and deep black (slightly glossy) colour - I will keep you updated!
Finally, I have already mentioned that certain areas of my skin have become a little dry due to the colder climate (and air-conditioned offices!) and I have been reaching for a richer moisturiser. I decided to try and incorporate more cream products into my daily make-up, for a more hydrated and glossy finish. I have owned a handful of cream blushes in the past, and have never had any difficulty with application. This Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in the shade Berry 06 is a lovely deep pink tone which can be used to add a flush of colour to an autumnal look.
