Hope you’re all having a nice weekend! I have to give a presentation on Monday so I’m going to be trying to get over my nerves before tomorrow!
Recently Boots have been offering 3 for 2 across their makeup, so I’ve acquired a few fresh pieces in my collection that I thought I’d give a few quick opinions on.
I’m currently having a bit of a love affair with highlighters, I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to discover their magic! I wasn’t sure if they were going to become a permanent fixture in my routine so the first one I purchased was the MUA Undress your Skin Shimmer Highlighter as it is only £3.00! It’s a gorgeous champagne pink highlighter which isn’t overly shimmery, it’s perfect for giving your skin a natural glow. You can see that the product is contoured and it makes you feel like you’re using a more expensive product which is a plus. The highlighter itself isn’t overly pigmented so you can easily build it up to the level you want.
During the colder months my skin becomes less oily and more combination, this meant my Double Wear foundation started to become a bit too drying for me. I decided to take advantage of Boots 3 for 2 and pick up some of the Boujours Healthy Mix Serum, as I thought it would be a bit more nourishing for my winter skin. I really like this foundation, the gel texture feels so light on your skin, it just glides on and it also has a lovely smell! Since the weather has gotten a bit warmer I feel like this is now not really suitable for my skin which is really upsetting. I’m still working with it because I really like the healthy glow it gives you. It doesn’t absorb into my skin like it used to, now it feels like I’m just moving it around my face with my brush.
I also bought the Bourjois Happy Light Concealer, I got 21 – Ivoire and regrettably I think it might be a bit too dark for my skin at the moment. In my opinion it’s an awfully heavy concealer and it creases terribly under my eyes, however it does give very good coverage of blemishes. I don’t really wear this very much to be honest, my skin just does not like the thick texture!
The last recent addition to my collection is the Autograph High Definition Mascara-Marks and Spencer*, this mascara works wonders at lengthening your eyelashes.I have never used any of the beauty products from Marks and Spencer but I have to say I'm seriously impressed with this product! I have only been using this for a week but I can already see we’re going to get on well! The mascara applies easily with no clumping, the only thing I don’t like about this product is the plastic wand, I much prefer natural bristles but this mascara still works well so it’s not a big complaint.
I’ll hopefully be doing some more in depth reviews of a few of these items soon.
Have you tried any of these products?
