Beauty Haul



Hey guys.

I went shopping at the weekend with my sister from Beauty and the Chic and I decided I wanted to update my makeup and purchase products I hadn't used before (apart from my foundation). Our first stop was Boots as my sister wanted to get some pictures developed, and I decided to browse the makeup as there were 3 for 2 offers on some of the makeup brands. 

Foundation 

I needed to repurchase my MaxFactor Facefinity Foundation in the shade Warm Almond (45). This is a 3 in 1 foundation with primer, concealer and foundation all in one. I have been using this foundation for years as it is the perfect shade for my skin and I find it really easy to apply. It provides great coverage without looking cakey and a long lasting finish. 

Lip products

I've wanted to purchase a new lipstick and lip gloss in a shade I didn't have, and whilst at the MacFactor counter I spotted the Colour Elixir Lip Gloss in the gorgeous colour Enchanting Coral. I always prefer to wear a lipstick underneath my lipgloss and I found the perfect match with Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Lovers Coral (825). I've already used both the lip products and so far so good. The lipstick is really moisturising, containing avocado oil and vitamin E (and  SPF 15), and adds a nice hint of colour. The lip gloss also keeps my lips feeling soft and moisturised whilst adding a gorgeous pop of colour. 

Blush and Eyes

I was still at the MaxFactor counter and I spotted two more products (which was handy as they were 3 for 2!). The first was the Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow in the colour Copper, which when I tested at the counter had a nice touch of shimmer but wasn't too glittery. The second was the Creme Puff Blush and I decided on the colour Seductive Pink 15. This is a really pretty colour and the blusher has a nice shimmer to it.

Brushes

I already have the Real Techniques Core Collection brushes and I really like them, but they were the only brush set I owned, so I was on the look out for another set. I spotted the Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Collection set out of the corner of my eye (I noticed the pretty packaging), and I also liked the fact the brushes are designed for buildable colour and lightweight application. The set contains a duo fiber face brush, a contour brush and an eye brush. I also purchased the Real Techniques Shading Brush as I wanted an eyeshadow brush for my makeup bag.

Body

I'm a fan of the Original Source Shower Gel and as I hadn't used this one before I thought I'd give it a go; this was the Coconut Shower Gel and it smells AMAZING! 

 Are there any beauty products that you are loving at the moment? Hope you all have had a fab weekend!
