I don't fall for a lot of makeup gimmicks and would much prefer investing in a tried and true product. There is one 'gimmick' however that I have fallen hook, line and sinker for and that is colour changing makeup. Any product that promises to react with my skins PH to give me my own, unique colour you can guarantee I will want to try it.
Now, I am not entirely sure about the 'science' behind these promises and I'm pretty sure you just get a lighter or darker colour depending on the temperature of your skin but still, I love what they do.
Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip and Cheek Balm - This was the product that first got me hooked on the whole colour changing thing. It was recommended to me by the lovely ladies on the Cosmopolitan Beauty Desk when I did some work experience there and its now one of my all time favourite products. It gives my lips the most beautiful, natural flush of pink and I'm on my second pot of the stuff.
Available from House of Fraser £20.50
Givenchy Gloss Revelateur Lip Gloss - My most recent addition to the family. I am not normally a lip gloss girl but this doesn't feel sticky at all. Compared to the balm this gives me a lighter pink colour and I think it would look great layered over a lipstick.
Available from Debenhams £19.50
DIOR Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm - This has given my beloved Givenchy balm some serious competition. I first tried this in September and used up all the whole lipstick in just over a month! I like that its in lipstick form so I don't have to get my fingers dirty.
Available from Debenhams £22.50
Bourjois Blush Exclusif - I love to see the drugstore brands bring out cheaper alternatives. This cream blush by Bourjois gives such a pretty pink flush to my cheeks.
Available from Boots £7.99
Dior Rosy Glow Blusher - One of my all time favourite blushes, looks ridiculously bright in the pan but on your cheeks it does exactly as the name suggests and gives you a soft rosy glow.
Available from Debenhams £30.50
