I am obsessed with trying beauty products and absolutely love discovering amazing makeup that feels good, looks good and just does the job brilliantly.
Which is why I wanted to share these makeup bits with you as I personally think that they are some amazing beauty products that you really ought to know about!
I have been loving using all of them so much so wanted to explain why below:
Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Concealer:
This is a gorgeous pot of creamy amazing-ness that really covers my dark under-eye circles with just a few pats. It feels comfortable, creamy, doesn’t really crease and has lasted me such a long time already. This is one of my favourite under-eye concealers ever!
bareMinerals Statement Lip Under Over Lip Liner:
This August there will be a colourful, bold new ‘Statement Lip’ collection launching from bareMinerals and because I work for the brand, I am lucky enough to get to try it early! I am obsessed with this lip liner in shade 100%, a bold crimson that can be used not just to outline the lips but to fill them in too, making it SO easy to do a red lip that won’t smear on teeth or around the face! It has a matte finish, packs a punch and lasts for hours. SOLD!
Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette:
I picked this up at the Stylist Magazine Beauty Awards and I am so pleased I did as it is now one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes of all time! The warm neutral, bronze and chocolate tones are flattering on my fair skin and it is so easy to create an elegant eyeshadow look with them. However you mix them, they all blend really well together, making it a pretty foolproof palette. The eyeshadows are highly pigmented too, so a little goes a long way. The perfect staple for a makeup bag.
Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Guilty Angel:
I have made no secret of the fact that I love a nude lip and this Guilty Angel shade from new beauty brand Buxom is the perfect pink/peach/nude combo. I really rate Buxom lipsticks as they feel so soft, creamy and comfortable on the lips and the coverage is always great too.
Other good nude lips are: Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm in Amaretto Swirl and bareMinerals Gen Nude collection.
(I recently posted on the Buxom blogger trip to the private island Osea here if you want to check it out!)
Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Foundation:
When I say that this is full coverage, boy, do I mean full coverage. I use a very small amount of the foundation each morning as I still like to let my freckles show through and this has instant full coverage that really goes far. Full coverage foundations can often feel quite heavy and cakey on the skin but this actually feels quite refreshing. It dries down to a matte finish but definitely keeps a little glow and is nowhere near as flat-matte as Double Wear can be. Absolutely loving this!
bareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer:
Just the perfect bronzer for sweeping around the contours of the face as it is warm enough to be a bronzer but seems to have a grey undertone that makes it ideal for contouring. I have raved about this previously – to see the full review, you can visit my A Beautiful New Bronzer and Illuminator from bareMinerals post.
