I needed some retail therapy recently and it always helps when makeup is involved. I just picked up some products that I was running out of and thought I would recommend some of the stuff to you guys.
Firstly, lets start with basics. You guys know how i'm obsessed with L'Oreal products. I got the L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist which is basically a setting spray which sets makeup! This product is definitely 10/10 for me, I've gone through two bottles now! I use it after I apply my concealer and then once more before highlight. No wonder why i'm rinsing the bottle.
I also got the L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Base which is a primer. I prep n' prime my face before putting any makeup and after moisturizing my face (skin routine post coming soon). I have heard so many reviews on the primer and i'll give this a high 7/10 for this. I'm still getting used to changing my primer from BarryM to L'Oreal.
In Boots, L'Oreal had 3 for 2 on all their products. So I thought I should give one of their new mascaras a go. I got the L'Oreal miss Hippie Mascara and it has such a thick brush. I think i'll give this product a 6/10 because it is £6.99 on its own and my lashes look lengthy but not too voluminous. I don't mind having products like this because when you're rushing for work, you just need to put anything on quickly. Good makeup tip when you're in a rush - mascara, concealer and some good nude lip gloss; easy combo.
And of course there's NYX in Boots now. So, as it's Summer, I needed some more colour! The NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner! I literally just picked up the brightest colours I could. I can't wait to show you guys the looks I have created using this. 9/10 the pigment and colour is so vibrant. 1 point deducted because it is a bit watery.
My next purchase was the NYX Eyebrow Gel - OMG seriously guys please invest your £5.50 on this product. This literally has changed my eyebrow game, so pigmented! 10/10
Finally, best till last. I casj went to the perfume aisle. Got myself YSL Mon Paris perfume. It smells so fresh, very fruity and sweet. I'm really not into sweet perfumes but I love this smell, the fruity smell overcomes the sweet.
Thanks for reading guys. You'll see the pictures soon with these products on my Instagram.
