I'm a huge fan of Real Techniques brushes - so much so that I decided to add two more to my collection. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I loved both The Core Collection and The Eyes Starter Set. I find Real Techniques brushes so incredibly soft and easy to work with. When I first applied my makeup using their brushes, I was amazed at what a huge difference they make - they apply makeup flawlessly. And of course, they are such good value for money! My latest additions are the blush brush and the powder brush - I can't wait to try them out!
I purchased a few Rimmel London products. First up, I bought the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the shade "Silky Beige." I know, I know, I'm super late to try this one out! Many have vowed this a must-have product, so seeing as I wanted to try out a new powder anyway, I thought it was about time I gave this one a go. I'll mainly use this product to set my makeup to avoid an oily T-Zone at the end of the day. I also bought a Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner in the shade "Sable Brown." I've wanted to try a brown eyeliner for ages for when I want to achieve a more natural and subtle eyeliner look - and this liner is the perfect shade.
I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Makeup Revolution; there's been quite a hype surrounding this brand recently, so I decided to give a few of their products a try for myself. The product I was most excited to get was the Ultra Blush Palette in "Sugar and Spice." It contains six shades that can be used for blusher, contouring and highlighting. I think the shades are beautiful and I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of this palette! Next, I purchased two eyeshadow palettes; The Iconic 1 and Acid Brights. I chose the Iconic 1 as it's the perfect everyday palette. As I want to experiment with colour a bit more and get out of my neutrals comfort zone when it comes to eyeshadow, I decided to add the Acid Brights palette to my basket.
I'm definitely more of a nude/pink lipstick kind of girl, but I thought I'd try a red lipstick and purchased an Amazing lipstick in "Dare," a deep matte red. The next product I bought is a single powder blush in the shade "Now!" - a lovely pale pink that will be great for creating a natural glow. The last two products were bought on a whim (well, mainly because I needed a few more products to qualify for free delivery!). I got the Focus & Fix Eye Primer and the Eyebrow Kit in Light/Medium - I have high hopes for both of these products!
So those are my latest buys! I will be reviewing these products on the blog in the near future, so watch out for those posts if you're interested!
