Hello you lovely lot. How are we all?

Gosh it seems a heck of a long time since I wrote up a beauty review/round up post. I’m so glad I’m making a bit of a comeback with some autumnal beauty picks, as these are my favourite to read, as well as write. I shan’t waffle on, I’ll let you in on the good stuff.

When a new season arrives I can’t help but change up my beauty routine. Apart from it being a habit, it feels nice to switch up your makeup bag and bring back old faves and even find some newbies.

This autumn it’s all about that beautiful warm glow (when I can be half-assed to do more makeup this just a lick of mascara) and a hydrated base. Nothing beats finishing off your base with a warm blush shade and to be honest, my makeup never feels complete until I’ve done so. Blush is a must for the A/W months, there’s nothing quite like lil rosy cheeks to make you look and feel even more snug. So, here are my favourites for the autumnal months ahead…

If you’re one for a budget beauty steal then there are two I highly recommend. Not only are they affordable, I find them just as amazing as the higher end products. First up is my favourite out of the two, Essence’s Silky Touch Blush in Indian Summer, the most perfect muted blush colour for the autumn months. In the pan it doesn’t look nothing special but on the skin is a whole other story. It’s a gorgeous warm peach shade with brownish undertones with a slight sheen to it, but no glitter – hurrah. I find many drugstore blushes contain a hell of a lot of glitter but this one has none whatsoever. The formula is so so creamy, long lasting and a real bargain for just £1. Yes, you did read that right!

For something a little more on the rosy side we have the Milani Powder Blush in Romantic Rose. This shade kinda speaks for itself I think. When applied to the skin it turns into a true English rose colour, which I find really flattering and gives you that ‘I’m a little bit flushed at how cold it is how here’ look, if ya get what I mean.

This post had to bring back a very old favourite of mine as it’s one I bring back out every year without fail. It’s the MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul (aka my fave, my go to and my blush best friend). I’m pretty sure I spoke about this quite a bit last year on here but I’m bringing it back – its that good. I purchased this on a whim as I found it on offer online and it turned out to be a very good sale purchase. The shade is an easy to wear peachy bronze blush and is just amazing if you love the trending peach toned makeup. This is a blush that would look incredible on many skin tones.

If you’re into your bronzed glowing skin then my biggest babe from my beauty cupboard for this is the Nars Blush in Zen. I’ve had this blush for a very long time, I actually think it was my first expensive blush purchase, and it sure didn’t disappoint. It follows the brands blush expectations, as its very finely milled to leave your skin looking like skin, long lasting and is very easy to blend. The shade almost looks like a bronzer but it has slight dusky rose undertones when applied to the skin, but ever so slight. It’s just the perfect blush if you want to spice up an all bronzy look.

Last but by no means least is a newbie to my stash, the Fenty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Ridiic. This blush in the stick screams bright and bold, which is typically your go to blush in the summer, however it transfers very different on the skin depending on how you apply it. When I saw this at the Fenty Beauty preview I was a bit terrified of the it but once I watched it apply to someone’s face I was in love. Its so lightweight and creamy and blends away like no other cream blush I’ve seen before. It looks so natural on the skin and leaves an orange flushed glow, perfect for autumn. Orange and autumn just go hand-in-hand, don’t they? This is a go to on the minimal makeup days, which are happening a lot at the moment.

What are your favourite blush picks for Autumn?

MAC cosmetics announced last month that they are creating new lipsticks with 10 internet beauty influencers. One being with the lovely Fleur de Force creating her own shade for the UK. Imagine creating your very own lipstick with a brand? I know, it’s a dream.

Fleur formulated her lipstick in the Toronto labs and came up with such a gorgeous nude shade. Her shade is a UK exclusive and went on sale just last week! You can really go wrong with a nude, but it’s really not any old nude, it’s so pretty. When I first saw swatches I was a bit concerned whether it would suit me, as it’s lighter than shades I’d normally go for. However, I love it! I’ve found it actually looks different on everyone that I’ve seen wear it, but here is how it looks on me.

It claims to be a soft ventolin inhaler buy online rosy blush, but on me it appears to be a light beige. I find it really flattering as it’s a Cremesheen finish, which gives a really gorgeous shine. It’s super creamy to apply and is very comfortable. Without a liner it lasts a good few hours but holds even better with a liner underneath. My favourite pairing is MAC’s liner in Boldly Bare, they just compliment each other so well.

The lipstick comes in the iconic MAC packaging but the outer packaging is so fun and edgy, which I think makes the collaboration feel that extra bit special.

This lipstick has really got me back into using my MAC collection – at last! There are so many others beauties being released with other influencers for other countries which are gorgeous, I just wish I could get my hands on them!

What’s your favourite MAC lipstick?

The nights are lighter and the sun is starting to make an ever so slight appearance, which means one thing, Spring days are on their way. Spring makeup is sometimes one of the prettiest of all the seasons, as it means all the super cute shades come out and more minimal makeup makes a come back. Blushers are something I love to experiment with more in Spring than any other time of the year, simply because there are so many that suit this season. Want to see my favourites?

If you’re one for a subtle peachy flush, MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul is my go to. This is one I like to wear with gold toned makeup and I think it compliments it really well. I got this product a very long time ago and is still one I use a lot today, which just says how good it is. MAC Mineralize products never disappoint me, I really want to try some more of these. I’ve never seen one quite like this shade.

My current favourite is the latest release by Benefit, the GALifornia blush, and everyday I use it I just dream of being on holiday. Spring time gets me so excited for the coming warmer months, and this blush is doing just the same. Its gorgeous mix of pink and gold gives the most stunning flush of colour to the cheeks. This compliments so many makeup looks, and gives a really order ventolin inhaler online nice rosy pop as well as a little bit of shimmer, which I think works really well for the brighter days. I have a full blog post on this little beaut here.

For something a little more affordable but works just like a mid to high end product, is the Milani Powder Blush, and my favourite shade for the coming season is Romantic Rose, the perfect pop of pink. This delicate product is pretty in the compact, but even prettier on the face. It’s a matte pink, not too intense and gives a gorgeous natural radiance. It’s the perfect for Spring, and looks so gorgeous over foundation without any bronzer for a flattering natural pop of colour. Also, unlike other drugstore blushes I’ve used, a little goes a long way with this product.

If you like an all-matte blush, the Rodial Blush range would be your choice out of this Spring Blush Edit. My favourite shade is South Beach, which isn’t a colour I would normally go for. It’s a light pink, which I thought wouldn’t agree with my skin tone, but I was so wrong. When applied to the face it somehow transforms into a really pretty pop of radiance and isn’t so light. I think this shade in particular from the range would look incredible on paler skin tones, the formula is super finely milled and so natural.

Do you have any blush picks for the coming Spring weeks?

There’s not really a better time to share some gorgeous lip products with you than Valentines, because who doesn’t want a luscious pout on this day? In a relationship or not, these lip picks are perfect for this occasion. I’ve got a whole load for you, so grab a cuppa and a biscuit.

NUDEY NUDES

My favourite lip of them all has to be a nude. I feel most confident in it, and for Valentines dates it’s so wearable if you’re going for drinks or food… or who knows, smooching? My top picks are all drugstore with that quality feel and are as good as high end products I use. First up is NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi, a beautiful soft true brown nude. These soft matte lip creams are super soft and never leave that drying matte finish. They are a little slow with pigmentation but I love to add a liner underneath for a fuller effect lip look, I usually use MAC in Nice’n’Spicy. For a true matte finish and super full on pigmentation is their Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt, how Valentines appropriate is the name. It’s a soft pink nude that is really flattering on the lips and will last you throughout the entire night without having to touch up. Last up in the nudes category is the Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick in Trendsetter, my favourite shade out of their latest range. The lipstick itself is highly pigmented and long lasting, it just needs a liner to go with it because of its rounded tip. This shade is the perfect nude brown.

PRETTY PINKS

To add some ‘girliness’ to a look, you can’t go wrong with a pink lipstick. My favourite right now and perfectly suited to the theme is Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk, this is a new and exclusive shade to the range and it’s to die for. This shade is a pink nude, but a lot more on the pink side than say Bedtime Flirt by NYX. It’s a warm shade that adds that perfect pop of dusky pink to any look. For a darker more mauve pink we have MAC Brave, this is an old favourite of mine and always makes a come back this time of year. It has a matte-satin finish and isn’t drying at all.

FLIRTY REDS

You can’t have Valentines without some reds can you? amoxil us I’ve got the perfect bunch of shades for you, all of which I find super pretty and flattering. Another NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is being mentioned because I just love the formula, its Monte Carlo, a gorgeous deep true red. This shade is the most wearable out of them all, as its daytime appropriate and really comfortable. For a brighter red I go for Kylie’s Lip Kit in Mary Jo K. This kit is a true matte finish, but as I’ve said before I love the formula. You need one swipe of the product for intense pigmentation and they don’t flake or crumble. If you want to go deeper and more daring then I love ColourPop’s Ultra Matte in LAX. This shade is a deep brown red, again with a matte finish; this would look stunning with a simple eye look for a date.

BEAUTIFUL BERRIES

For those who love berry lips, I have some goodies in store. In this catergory my favourite is a muted but bright pop of berry pink, which is ColourPop’s Ultra Matte in Teeny Tiny. This is more of a brown shade of pink; a little lighter than the rest but it has berry tones and is so pretty. Another Ultra Matte in this category is Thursday. This is a raspberry pink shade, one that is really flattering on many skin tones. I find this shade really unique and I don’t have any in my collection like it. A deeper shade of berry has to be Kylie’s Lip Kit in Spice; this is my go to for a darker pink lip. It has a slight deep purple twist to it that is so gorgeous with minimal makeup.

LIP TOPPERS

To add a bit of flirtacious shine and to also add some plumpness to any lip colour it has to be Nars Lipgloss in Gold Digger. I have this in a mini size and I wear this a lot. You can pop this over the top of any lip colour to give a golden glow effect. To add some red sparkle on top of those flirty red lips I use Jouer Cosmetics Lipstick in Cranberry, this can be used on its own and it has great stand alone pigmentation, but I love this on top of any shade of red for a metallic finish.

What shade will you be going for on the 14th?

Whether you’re that person who can’t be bothered with a long makeup routine or simply don’t find quite enough time in the mornings, I’ve some real good speedy products and tips for you. Even if you love to play around with makeup, the everyday makeup routine can become somewhat a chore. On the days I run out of time I think I’ve mastered the 10-minute makeup task.

No matter if I’m in a rush or not, I love to have a flawless base. To achieve these I use my trusty Yves Saint Laurent Blur Primer to prime and add a glow, and then apply the L’Oreal True Match Foundation with an oval brush (my favourite is from Crown Brush UK). An oval brush literally speeds up the process by a good few minutes. Next up is concealer and for this I love the Tarte Shape Tape, I dab a few spots on and tap in with my fourth finger. It gives full coverage and blends within seconds. Then to set I use the Nars Loose Powder as it’s so quick and lasts all day.

To give a little more colour and dimension to my face I add the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer to the hollows of my face as well as to bronze, then it’s straight onto adding a glow. For a rosy pop of colour on my cheeks I use the MAC blush buy ventolin albuterol from the Sweet Copper Compact, and from the same compact I use the golden highlight in Whisper of Gilt, a cult favourite that I can always rely on.

For the eyes I do sometimes switch it up, but the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette has been my palette of choice for speedy makeup. It includes so many different colours, and the shimmers add a glamorous pop of colour without all the effort. I usually use the matte brown and orange on the top row (Beach & Penny), followed by LA, a gorgeous gold or Dubai, a deep burgundy shimmer. These are so easy to blend out and make it look like you’ve made a lot of effort.

With about 2-3 minutes to go I touch up my brows with Gimme Brow from Benefit and add a touch of the Wonderwand Mascara by Ciate London. For lips I always reach for the Everlasting Lipstick by Kat Von D in Bow N Arrow as its super pigmented in one swipe and matches so many eye looks. To set and finish I use MAC Fix+ which makes your speedy task stay all day.

I’ve got this routine nailed down to a T now so it takes me just under 10 minutes. What products do you love for a speedy but flawless makeup look?

When I find a lip combo I love, I wear it pretty much everyday, and recently I’ve found my perfect match. If you saw my Pop Of Pink post the other day, you’ll know I’ve been loving a splash of pink at the moment. It’s not a shade I usually go for, but I’ve found some really sophisticated tones and products and I can’t stop using them. Let me tell you about my perfect pair.

First up, it’s not everyday I wear pink lips so this combo must have something quite special about it. I’m usually more of a nude/brown kinda girl, but I’ve bit the bullet and stepped out of my nude-ish zone (and it feels good). The pair of the moment is ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Lipstick in Clueless, a gorgeous dusty mauve with MAC’s Lip Liner in Soar, the perfect dusky pink. These paired together gives the most stunning rosy pink/mauve, which is so nice paired with a golden eye.

Let’s talk about the formula, as I find this the most important part of lip products. ColourPop Ultra Matte lips can be quite drying, but not if you apply a balm underneath. The formula is lightweight and I never buy doxycycline canada feel like I have anything on my lips, and you do only need just one swipe for amazing full coverage. To ensure it doesn’t dry out my lips, I apply the MAC liner all over my lips as this acts as a base and adds a contour effect as the liner is a touch darker.

The wear for this pairing, and the Ultra Matte lipstick alone, is just incredible. I go through the day eating, drinking and it stays on for at least 8 hours. The only bit I ever need to touch up is the middle, which is common for me with any lipsticks. I find the MAC lip liner very long lasting, more so than the lipstick, but it holds the lipstick down well. I just wish the lip liner wasn’t in a wooden pencil as the Pro Longwear Liners from MAC are much creamier, however you get amazing pigmentation with Soar.

I just can’t get enough of this combo and the look I typically go for is glowing skin with a golden eye, here (above) I’ve used the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette.

What is your favourite lip combo?

I’ve become a bit of a girly girl recently, more than usual, as I’ve been loving everything pink in sight. Rose pinks, baby bubblegum pinks and even bright pinks I just adore – they are too pretty to resist, right? I’ve collected together my current favourite and highly recommend pink products to show you my much-loved pops of pink.

First up I’m starting with the face and reminiscing over an old classic, Nars Orgasm Blush. We all know how hyped this product is and it’s simply because its so great. This lightweight but perfectly pigmented blush adds that bit of rosiness you need for a subtle natural glow, especially because of its gold flecks of glitter throughout the product. It adds just the right amount of sparkle. For a brighter pop of pink, one that gives you that ‘Winter-cold-fresh-glow’ look is the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Justify My Love. This blush is more on the matte side and perfect for those days you want some extra colour.

Speaking of a glow, I’ve got the perfect glowy pink products to help you illuminate and sparkle. The Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Aura is a beautiful light pink shade with a holographic finish; it’s so unique I’ve never seen anything quite like it. For added longevity and pop of glam the Benefit High Beam is the perfect base. I apply this with a damp beauty blender to the high points of my face.

For eyes I’ve got two palettes for the transition into Spring. The Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay, an old favourite and must-have piece is the palette full with pink shades, ranging from mattes to shimmer and lights to darks. This palette is faultless in terms of formula, shade range and packaging as I’m sure buy priligy no prescription most of you are aware of with Urban Decay. A palette I’ve been using a hell of a lot recently has a tonne of gorgeous shades in the prettiest pink packaging, which is the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette. My god isn’t it a stunner? With this palette there is so much versatility with the looks you can create, with hot pinks, subtle browns and shimmery purples. The performance of these shadows is outstanding, which is why I use it often and the shades are so easy to blend. My favourites are Almond Truffle, Bordeaux and Cotton Candy.

This post wouldn’t be complete without adding some gorgeous pink lip shades in. I’ve had a handful of favourites for different finishes. For gloss I love to use the Urban Decay Revolution High-Colour Lipgloss in Liar, a subtle rose shade. You can add this gloss to many shades of lipsticks and liners, my favourite being MAC in Mehr or their liner in Whirl. For a matte finish, which I love the most, is ColourPop’s Ultra Matte in Clueless, a matte dusty mauve and for a brighter pop of pink we have Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Lume, a bright fuchsia pink. I love the formula of both of these and both give incredible pigmentation and full coverage. To pair with Clueless my favourite liner is MAC’s Soar (top), oh my it’s such a pretty pairing for a daytime pink mauve. Another liner that is great for a pink lip is MAC’s Whirl (bottom), which is a lot more versatile and can pair with many shades (I just wish these came in something other than a wooden pencil for smoothness).

I’m all pinked out!

What pop’s of colour are you using right now?

MAC Cosmetics recently launched their Nutcracker Sweet Collection, in preparation for the Holidays, which is now just around the corner. And oh my, is it sweet! Straight away I was in awe of the packaging, the pinks, plums and hints of gold are so magical yet classy and give it that extra special touch. Not only did I want this product, it was a need, and you’re about to see why.

Of the collection I picked up two of the products, the Sweet Copper Face Compact and the Sweet Bronze Pigments & Glitter Set. But, can we just talk about the face compact for a minute?! It comes with two Extra Dimension products, the Pleasure Model Extra Dimension Blush and the famous sought after Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish. What I was most excited about was the Whisper of Gilt highlight, which was talked about for years on the blogging and YouTube scene and I’m so glad MAC bought it back. I can now understand all of the love for it; it’s a gorgeous gold toned highlight that gives a beautiful dewy finish. For the blush it’s a dusky copper shade, almost a deep peachy brown, which looks gorgeous on both pale and darker skin tones. As expected, the pair are both so super soft, long lasting and very easily buy doxycycline tablets for malaria buildable. The packaging for this is in a flexible vinyl case with gold embroidery, unlike any MAC packaging I’ve seen before. It’s so sleek and travel-friendly to.

Now for the pigments and glitter set, the Bronze set was my favourite of the two, as I just love these shades. The bronze pigments come in three very versatile shades, they would look amazing on all skin tones and are easy to blend and build upon. You can use MAC pigments dry or damp to, by using them damp you get a little bit more colour pay off, but both ways they look so stunning. For the glitter, this can be used on your face, body and hair as well as your eyes, but needs a glitter adhesive to get the best wear (I use Too Faced’s Glitter Glue). This is so stunning over any of the pigments and gives that extra shiny sparkle ready for this festive season. You also get a lot of product in each pot, in between the full and mini sizes MAC offer, which I think is very good value for money.

Autumn is finally upon us, and you know what that means… The fall lipsticks are making a come back. Every year I have a select few that I wear to death, but this year I’m trying out more and more and have come across some shades that have Autumn written all over them. I’ve got it covered from dark berry reds to pinks and nudes, including both drugstore brands and some luxury picks. Yes, I’ve got it all going on this season.

The Berry Shades

 

Screen2BShot2B2016-10-132Bat2B22.15.18
If you’re a lover of a dark red lip, every lip pick here will take your fancy. First, we have a classic MAC lipstick in the shade Diva. This is one everyone turns to for a dark berry matte lip as it is the most gorgeous shade, and suits fair to dark skin. If you love this shade but want a drugstore dupe then the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen is the one. It’s the exact same in colour and finish, just the NYX formula is a little more hydrating. For a less intense and brighter cherry shade, the Avon Matte Lipstick in Wild Cherry is perfect. I find this the most wearable, and is a simply stunning cherry shade. These matte lipsticks from Avon are very comfortable and long-lasting, a very similar finish to MAC matte lipsticks.

The Pinks

 Lately I’ve been all about pink lipsticks and it was very hard to whittle down my favourites. One that I’ve been wearing a lot of is Kathryn by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is a matte liquid lipstick in a brown/berry finish, which ultimately mixes to be a deep mauve and is the most gorgeous shade ever. For a similar shade but a little bit more girly and pink is the Make Up Forever Artist Rouge in the shade M102, a little brighter and less matte than Kathryn. If you’re into plum buy generic ventolin shades then this would be for you, is has beautiful warm plum undertones with a super
comfortable and long lasting matte finish. For something a little more luxury and so worth it is the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in no.40. This is a classic deep pink that is very classy and wearable with a super soft matte velvet finish.

The Nudey Browns
Screen2BShot2B2016-10-132Bat2B22.15.34
 You can never go wrong with a nude or brown, right? This was probably the hardest category, just because nudes are worn all year round, but I did it and found 3 that I find most Fall appropriate. If you love brown shades AND liquid lipsticks like me, then these two are going to be for you. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte in Iced Mocha and Colour Pop’s Ultra Matte Lip in Chi are two I must say are so truly stunning. Iced Mocha is a true brown shade with cool undertones, however is actually very easy to wear. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Mattes are very similar in finish to Colour Pop, as they are both extremely matte but hydrating and soft all at the same time. Chi from Colour Pop is a cool-toned nude beige, a little less intense than Iced Mocha and is very opaque. One that crosses categories but is more brown than rose is Charlotte Tilbury’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Stoned Rose. This is a true rose-brown shade that suits any skin tone. It’s lightweight formula is so smooth and its colour rich and buildable – so beautiful for this time of year!

Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.05.34-7Let’s be honest, there isn’t anything much more exciting and satisfying than buying new makeup and adding it to your beauty stash. Whether it’s an instant splurge or much-awaited product, it’s always such a good feeling when you’ve got new untouched makeup to admire and use. I have to admit, I’ve been doing a lot of buying lately, so I wanted to share some of the goodies with you.

Starting with new in palettes, as that’s what I lust after the most and I’m sure some of you will agree with me on that. First we have the Ciate London palette in collaboration with Australian YouTube and Beauty Guru, Chloe Morello, known as the Chloe Morello Beauty Haul. Not only was this a must-have of mine, it is now up there with one of the most me palettes I’ve ever purchased. The palette is full of warm shades, including both mattes and shimmers, which are perfect for the coming seasons. With a range of browns, pinks, gold’s and cranberry’s there isn’t much else you would need in a palette of dreams.
Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.05.42-1Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.06.42-1
Next we have my most recent purchase, the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Mario palette (the most exciting purchase I’ve made so far). I was very eager and ordered this from the US website as I knew it’s limited edition. To my surprise I only had to pay the international shipping fee and nothing more in terms of customs charges, hurrah! Again, this is a palette I fell head over heels for because of the warm brown/bronze shades. As expected, the shadows are super pigmented as easy to wear together, and you can create so many looks with this. I shall be doing a full review on this very soon, so stay tuned. This is now available on Sephora.
 Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.05.53-1Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.06.03
One of my most recent instant and maybe ‘not generic accutane needed’ splurges was in World Duty Free at the MAC counter, but I hadn’t purchased anything from MAC in a while so we’ll let that be the excuse. I picked up two lipsticks in the shade Brave (a satin dusky pink) and Mehr (a satin warm mauve), which are two I’ve been wanting for ages (both pictured above). I also picked up a Mineralize Skinfinish in Global Glow, as I’m obsessed with Soft & Gentle so I wanted to give this more bronzy/golden shade a go.
 Screen2BShot2B2016-10-072Bat2B11.05.24-1

Oh yes, another highlighter, because you can never have too many right? Jouer Cosmetics recently launched their Fall Collection on Cult Beauty here in the UK, so I picked up a Powder Highlighter in Topaz, a very golden warm highlight that gives anyone a sun kissed glow. I also purchased a new
shade from their collection of Long-Wear Lip Crèmes in Tawny Rose, which is the most ‘Instagrammable’ matte dusty mauve – it’s so gorgeous! The formula is so creamy and easy to wear, similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, but gives off a much more intense colour.

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-11-06-32
If you love pretty makeup tools then you’ll love this. I picked this Rose Gold Eyelash Curler from Primark for only £1, not only does it do the job, it looks so beautiful in your collection! It’s so inexpensive and who doesn’t want lash curlers as pretty as this?
screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-11-06-13
On the theme of metallic goodies, the NYX Face & Body Glitter in the shade Copper is one of my new favourites. I’ll just be using this for my eyes, but I’m so impressed with how well this stays and doesn’t crease on the lids. As you expect, it has an intense payoff and looks insanely sparkly. Again, very inexpensive and now I’ve got one I want them all.

What products are new to your beauty stash?
