I bought this darker shade of L'Oreal's True Match Foundation when I got back off holiday. I had managed to get a good tan and all of my other foundations were way too light. I have been loving using this as as the texture is beautiful. It blends really well and even, feels weightless on the skin and gives a medium-full coverage depending on what you are wanting. I would definitely say this is up there with being as good as my high end foundations. I am huge fan and it is the best drugstore foundation which I have ever tried.
This month I have been getting to grip with my Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and there has been a few stands out shades. These are Pillow Talk and Rebel both shades are shimmers and have blue and purple undertones to them. Pillow Talk is a iced lilac with silver shimmer running through it, and Rebel is a darker purple with a lot of golden shimmer running through it this is more like a pigment when applied to the lid. They have good pigmentation but I found spraying my brush with a little setting spray brings all of the pigments out and they transfer beautifully onto the eyelids. If you like glitter and some shimmer, these are great for you, and are super affordable.
I think I am going to have to ban myself from mentioning the MUA Highlighter in Iridescent Gold over here on my blog. I feel like it has had a mention in all of my recent posts, so I am going to have to find something new to rave about. However, in the mean time for £3 this is a must have in everyone's makeup bag. It is a white based highlighter with golden shimmer, this is highly pigmented when you swipe your brush in the pan and this transfers perfectly on to the skin. I should be on commision for the amount of my friends who have been and bought this because it really is a steal which is sitting on the shelves of Superdrug.
Since buying this at the end of August the Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Mother has not left my lips. These are highly pigmented and need just on application for it to be even and in place. They are not patchy or flaky and does not dry to a matte finish which is uncomfortable on the lips. This is a vibrant dark raspberry shade which perfect going into Autumn. Now these are available in Debenhams I have a feeling I am going to be buying quite a few more!
This Marc Jacobs Honey Perfume is probably more of a Spring/Summer scent but I having being loving this recently. It is a light scent which is has a fruity scent which is what I always gravitate too. This has notes of mandarin and pear, mixed with a honey and vanilla gives an overall warmth to the scent. Marc Jacobs perfumes are my favourite and this is a go-to when I need something fresh and long lasting.
