Recent Makeup Buys

I was having a bit of a Superdrug moment last week and bought loads of new skincare products, so whilst I was splashing the cash I thought I'd treat myself to some new bits and pieces too. I've also included the Benefit Roller Lash mascara that I got free in ELLE magazine a couple of months ago as it's still a fairly new addition to my face!

Barry M Gelly Nail Paints & New Plumpy Topcoat
Chilli - I've had my eye on this shade for a while now, it's quite a hard colour to describe really, the closest thing I can think of is a slightly darker and more reddy version of Pantone's Marsala (colour of the year 2015)
Rose Hip - I literally haven't taken this off since I brought it home, it is such a beautiful delicate almost-white-pink and I've had so many compliments. It's a perfect pastel for spring!
Plumpy Topcoat - I was really interested by this product so couldn't wait to try it out. It really does give your nails a high-shine gel effect. Not the quickest drying or perhaps even the longest lasting, but it does it's job very nicely for just £3.99 - result!

Bourjois Colorband Eyeshadow/Liner
I had my eyes on this since it first came out so I am glad I finally picked it up. The colour is beautiful, it's easy to apply and isn't too in-your-face like the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold, making it for a wonderful everyday rose gold eyeshadow.

Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eye Primer
I've been using ELF's lid primer for so long yet their recent decision to close the UK website before long left me hunting around for a new eye primer. I turned to Makeup Revolution in the end as I have never been let down before by their products, and yet again they have impressed me. This performs brilliantly and is only £2.50. (here)

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (not pictured above)
So when ELLE was giving away a world-exclusive sample of the new mascara Roller Lash of course I had to pick it up. I'm not a major fan of They're Real! as I feel like there are better and more affordable alternatives. However, Roller Lash just feels special and not like any other mascaras I have used before. It lengthens my lashes to absolute perfection without that spidery look, which really makes my eyes pop. I love framing my eyes with a good mascara! I think I may buy this full size when my sample runs out.

GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp
This is a product I've had my eye on for a while, especially as my blogging fave Lily Melrose raves about it. I was a little nervous to try this as I usually don't get on with matte lip products but this is gorgeous, it lasts so long and feels weightless, like you don't have any product on what-so-ever.

I adore my new goodies, however the danger of having new makeup is of course wanting even more makeup, haha :)

    1. It's fantastic! It lasts for so long, and really isn't drying for a matte lip product :) haha thank you!
