Hello again! Here are the products I’ve been loving this week:
Rimmel Stay Blushed in Pop of Pink £4.49
This is lovely cream blush, and I find Pop of Pink perfect for my fair skin. Colour pay-off is good – a little goes a long way – and you can build up the colour if desired. I have been patting this in with fingers to the apples of my cheeks on top of my foundation, then lightly powdering over everything with a translucent power. Like most blushers, the staying power on this isn’t amazing, you’ll probably need to top up mid-afternoon. However, lately I have been applying Stay Blushed, powdering, then adding a light dusting of powder blush over the top, and have found this really helps to keep my cheeks rosy all day.
Seventeen Off the Wall Nail Graffiti £3.99
Oh my, I have been a little obsessed with this, this week. The graffiti polish is instant nail art, no fiddly bits – which I love. For this look, I applied two coats of white nail polish (Barry M), then 1 coat of the graffiti over the top, adding another layer in places I thought needed it, then finished with a top coat. The graffiti polish can be applied over any colour you choose, but I love how this look combines the white nail trend and the nail art trend all in one.
Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner £2.59
A bit of a boring one, but I adore this lip balm. I get extremely dry lips, and this is the only balm I have found (including expensive ones) that soothes and smooths. The best thing for me is how this sinks into my lips rather than just sits on top. And it doesn’t make my lips feel even drier between applications, as some others do. I always apply this before bed, so I wake up with moisturised lips, then throughout the day whenever I feel I need it. It’s also great for prepping lips before lipstick – I apply a liberal amount, let it sink in for 5 – 10 minutes, then wipe it off with a cotton pad. This removes any flaky bits so your lips are lipstick ready.
Collection Little Mix Jesy’s Volumising Mascara £2.99
On a recent visit to Superdrug I thought I would tear myself away from my Max Factor mascara addiction and try one of the new Collection Little Mix mascara’s. I had a good look at all the bushes and settled on Jesy’s Volumising Mascara. What I like about this is that the brush is nice and big and it doesn’t pick up too much product, leaving you with just the right amount to create separated, fluttery eyelashes. This isn’t a high impact mascara, the results after a couple of coats are quite subtle, but I think it’s lovely for day time. There was a little bit of flaking throughout the day, but no where near as much as some I’ve tried. I think this is a bargain for £2.99!
