I just want to take a moment to applaud L'oreal for some really good releases this year. From mascara, to nail polish, to lip products, I feel they have really expanded their range with amazing formula's that I wouldn't expect from the high street. Maybelline take note, you are letting me down so far in 2014!
L'oreal's latest release are these L'Ombre Pure Eyeshadow's which are amazingly soft, creamy and metallic. They are so smooth that they almost feel like a cream eyeshadow and pack some serious punch when it comes to colour pay off.
I picked up two shades, Golden Nude (204) which is a metallic gold and Cafe Saint Germain (201) which is a metallic taupey/purple colour.
For £5.49 these are amazing value, definitely worth checking out next time you are in Boots
Now on with the rest of the face!
Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation in shade SP50 mixed with NARS Copacabana Illuminator
This has been my foundation combination for the past month or so. In the Summer I like to wear foundations with a higher SPF so this Shiseido one is perfect.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
I finished my Hourglass concealer and have now reverted back to this NARS one. I still don't quite get what all the fuss is about with this concealer. It does a pretty decent job but I'm not blown away by it....maybe time will tell.
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC3
I tend to use two concealers, one for under eyes and always my trusty Laura Mercier for spots and redness, you cant beat it.
MAC Extra Dimension Bronzer in Aphrodite's Shell
I really hope MAC re-release these bronzers at some point, as they give your skin a really beautiful glow.
MAC Cheeky Bugger Blush
Full review here, even though this is sold out online check your local MAC counter!
Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight
Because I can't do my makeup without applying this!
Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot
A pretty decent setting powder, does the job.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette and Illamasqua Brow and Lash Gel
My favourite brow duo, it never fails me.
NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
One of the best eyeshadow primers I have tried, makes my eyeshadow last all day and doesn't feel heavy or cakey once applied.
L'oreal Colour Riche L'Ombre Pure in 204 Golden Nude
L'oreal Miss Manga Waterproof Mascara
Full review here and the waterproof formula lasts all day with zero smudging.
NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Montego Bay
There are two things I am always looking for in a lipstick:
1) A matte finish
2) A shade that is similar to the lipstick Rachel McAdams wears in the Notebook
I don't ask for much do I ;)
This ticks both boxes, so naturally its my current favourite!
