Beauty Haul

So when I was back in the UK at the weekend I picked up a lot of new make up from Boots, Superdrug and duty free! I find the make up selection to be considerably smaller in Germany so was waiting to go home to stock up and do a proper shop! I ended up buying a lot more than I needed as per usual but I just couldn't stop buying!

Here's some of the face make up I bought:

1 - No.7 Natural Blush Tint Powder in Soft Damson £8
2 - L'Oreal Paris True Match Foundation in Vanilla £9.99
3 - 17 Miracle Matte Skin Primer £4.99 Benefit Brightening Face Primer £22.50
4 - L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer in Vanilla £6.99
5 -  Benefit Brightening Face Primer £22.50
6 - Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light £6.49

I absolutely love the No.7 Blusher in soft damson, it's my favourite blusher of all time. It's subtle and not too in your face pink and stays on the whole day when you apply it and it's got such a super soft texture, I'd really recommend it! My favourite foundation at the minute is the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, it's very light and doesn't feel thick or heavy on the face. It's very blendable and leaves a smooth finish. I've never used the Benefit Primer but I've been advised to try it out so thought I would, I did a quick swatch of it and it seems really nice with a bit of a sheen to it, looking forwards to trying it properly! I also bought the cheaper 17 primer to compare the two at both ends of the price scale and will probably make a future post about it when I've tried them both properly! The L'Oreal true match concealer is similar to the foundation in the fact that it's light and blends well and gives a nice even coverage. Also my first time trying out the Sleek Contour Kit, a lot of vloggers and bloggers rave about this so thought I'd give it a try, I did a quick test earlier and it does seem to do the desired job well!

Here's the eye make up I bought:

1 - L'Oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara in Black Lacquer £10.99
2 - Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner in Black Glamour £5.29
3 - Rimmel Scandel Eyes Flex Mascara in Black £6.99

As you may have guessed, I'm a big L'Oreal Paris fan and this mascara is no exception. It's a fine brush but really does wonders on your eyelashes and no clumps! So far I really like the Rimmel liquid liner after being advised it by so many people as I'd been using Max Factor and was less than impressed! It stays on all day and doesn't smudge at all. I got the Rimmel Scandal Eyes mascara free as Boots currently have an offer on if you spend £10 on Rimmel and you get it free. I've been using it the past few days and it's quite good! Not the best mascara I've ever used but for free I definitely can't complain!

Finally, a few lipsticks:

1 - Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in 101 £5.49
2 - No.7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Classic Rose £9.50
3 - Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in 016 £5.49
I love all three of these lipsticks and don't have a single complaint - sorry no criticisms here! The Rimmel Lipstick in 101 is my favourite from the three and is a very neutral rose pink and quite a musky colour. It matches most things I wear as it's a neutral subtle pink. This lipstick is very soft and smells lovely, I know that doesn't matter much but nice smelling things always entice me! It's hydrating too and leaves the lips feeling soft and not too dry, especially in this cold weather we've started to get (in Germany anyway!) The No.7 lipstick is a deeper pink but not too bright so can still be worn as an everyday shade but can also we worn at night too, I find this shade works both ways as it's very classic. It applies smoothly and is very nourishing to the lips. Finally, the Rimmel lipstick in 016 is more of a barbie pink. It's a very pale pink and looks very sweet and girly when on, not everyone's cup of tea but the lipstick in general I'd recommend purely for the texture and nourishment it provides!
