So I have done little bit of beauty shopping lately, I recently placed an order on Debenhams and SpaceNK so I thought it would be fun to show you what I got as I'm a bit nosey so I love these types of posts myself! Hope you enjoy!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush 'Diffused Heat'
I have been wanting to try these blushes for a long time, when they first came out I thought they were gorgeous but I restrained myself from purchasing so I could read some reviews and see if they were worth the price tag. Every review I have seen has been positive so I finally picked one up in the shade 'Diffused Heat' which is a coral shade with the cream marble effect running through it. When I first saw this blush I thought it was beautiful but quite shimmery in the pan but on the cheeks I don't find it looks too much at all, gives more of a glow to the cheeks. The main thing I was so impressed with is the texture of these blushes they are just perfect, so smooth and they glide onto the cheeks and apply evenly like no other blush I have tried, the pigmentation is just enough, they aren't to sheer but they aren't overly pigmented either.
Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc 'Peach Mosaic'
This is similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, it can be used as a highlighter which is what I purchased it for, as a blush, or eyeshadow. It comes with four shades, a creamy white, peach, bronze and a peachy pink. When swirled together you get a peachy highlight shade which is beautiful. As there is different shades you can choose what you want, so if you want more of a pale pink highlight - use the white and peachy pink shade or if you want a more peachy highlight - use the peach and bronze shade. The product is quite pigmented, so I like to use a light hand when using it as a highlight. I think the shade 'Peach Mosaic' is best for medium to dark skin tones.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation NC30
I decided to get this as I wanted a setting powder but one that provides coverage, this is a powder foundation but it can also be used as a setting powder. I haven't tried this much yet but from first impressions I like it, it sets my make-up, it's not too matte or powdery looking and it provides a little bit of coverage when used lightly to set my foundation.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder 'Golden Light'I wanted a new bronzer and thought I would try this one from Bobbi Brown, the shade 'Golden Light' is a good shade for pale to medium skin tones (if you have very pale skin this would be probably be too dark). It is a matte bronzer which I like and the shade looks nice as it isn't too orange or too red or brown. I haven't tried it out yet but I think it will be perfect for contouring.
Bobbi Brown Corrector 'Light Bisque'
This is a repurchase for me and one of my holy grail products, it's a corrector so it helps to correct dark circles under your eyes and the you apply a concealer on top, I notice a real difference when using this and highly recommend it if you have dark circles.
Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster
I love the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner, it's the best face tan I have tried so when I saw Clarins had came out with this new face tanner I had to try it! It comes in a little dropper bottle and you drop a few drops into your daily moisturiser, you can use less or more drops depending on the tan you want. I really like the idea of this and can't wait to try it!
Mac Lipstick 'Japanese Maple'
Mac describe this shade as a 'frosted light beige' with a creemsheen texture. Part of the Creemsheen + Pearl collection, I'm usually not a fan of frost lipsticks but I don't find this one to be too frosty, it has more of a glossy finish. The coverage is good and with a few swipes you can get a opaque application. The shade is a lovely everyday nude and easy to wear.
Mac Lipstick 'Coral Bliss'
Also part of the Creemsheen + Pearl collection, it is described as a 'frosted light coral' but I don't see any frost to this shade, it doesn't have any shimmer instead it has a creamy glossy finish and the pigmentation is also good and it is such a pretty coral.
So thats everything I have purchased recently, have you tired any of these products?
