Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! As from now i'll be posting less frequently as usual due to my final exams popping up till the 13th June. However, after then, I shall be free to blog virtually all the time! So, please bare with me during this time. On a brighter note, today I've got a collective beauty haul for you all, ranging everything from hair to makeup. It's not overly massive like other more famous beauty bloggers out there, but I thought i'd share it with you all anyway!
Here are my MUA lipsticks, ranging from a sultry red to pale nudes for an everyday look.They're super pigmented, and last a good few hours on the lips which is always a bonus. For just £1.00 from Superdrug (each) you can't go wrong!
They vary from Shade 11, 9, 14, 12, 13.
Next up is another MUA product! That are the latest craze, MUA nail polish in these beautiful pastel colours and a deep red. I couldn't resist buying them all, especially when they're just a £1.00! Not only that, Superdrug have recently had a '3 for 2' offer on, so that just encouraged me even more!
I also purchased the above translucent pressed powder from NYC Cosmetics, for about £1.99. However, i'm not overly impressed with it - it does the job - but next time I think I may buy the hyped up 'Rimmel Stay Matte' pressed powder.
For my hair I purchased these two items. This large Batiste dry shampoo (which is a blooming MIRACLE WORKER by the way!) cost me about £4.38 from Wilkinsons, but I think it's on offer at the moment for just £3.15. Then, I couldn't resist to finally trying out the Aussie haircare products, in which I bought the 'Miracle Shine Shampoo' and the 'Miracle Moist Conditioner' for dry hair. So far? I'm really impressed with the Aussie stuff, it's made my hair really shine and feel much more smoother. Thumbs up Aussie!
Next, I purchased the famous 'Real Techniques' brushes in the 'Core Collection' set! I absolutely LOVE these, they're so beautifully soft and work a wonder when applying foundation, powder and blushes. I bought them for just £16.00 from Amazon. Perfection.
Next up, is the MUA 'Power Pout' which is absolutely love just to quickly swipe on during the day. I got them in 'Broken Hearted' (which is the deep pink colour) and 'Rendezvous' (nude/pink colour) which are, in my opinion, the best ones. They're really pigmented - alike to the MUA lipsticks - and super cheap too, for just £3.00.
Below is my trusty L'oreal True Match foundation for £10.99 from Boots/Superdrug. Let me get this straight. This is, without a doubt, the BEST foundation i've ever tried and come across on the high-street. It's so good, it doesn't cling to any dry skin, it lasts quite long throughout the day and it's really well matched to my skin tone in 'rose ivory' which is the second lightest shade.
On the other hand, I also bought the Diorskin Forever foundation for a mighty £28.80 (when it was 10% off at Debenhams!) and I do really like this product, my only problem is the shade which is a little too dark for me, and I did get the lightest shade. However, it's DIOR!:) You can read my full review of the Diorskin Forever Foundation here.
Last but not least, is probably one of the most famous beauty products in the beauty blogging world! Yes, that's right. The Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer for just £4.15. I'm so glad I bought this, it's really made a difference when applying makeup to my face, covering up red blemishes and dark under-eye circles discreetly. I would seriously recommend this product, especially seeing as it's from the high-street.
What do you think to any of these products?
Have you tried them before?
Let me know!
