The Sunday Edit

As i said in this post here. Sundays tend to be the day i experiment with makeup and try out new product - A kind of first impression. So I'm back to share another one with you guys...

Becca Backlight Primer Filter | £32

This isn't a new product or one of not used before. Regular readers will know how much i love this stuff. But i haven't used it in a while so i thought i get it back out. When I applied this it was an instant WOW moment! This is just the best primer every. It gives skin such a lumions, radiant glow, without any glitter. It smooths the skin too! See this post for more info.

L'Oreal Nude Maquige Cushion Foundation | £9.99

I have recently spoke about this here. I want to try it with different primers to see how it gets on. And i'm so impressed. This along with the becca primer skin leaves me with a glow like no other. The foundation itself its so light and easy to blend. The little pot and cushion make it really convient to use. I like to just dap my brush and blend into the skin.

Maybelline Eraser Eye | £7.99

I keep saying this everywhere and everyone saying how good. I have tried this a few years ago, but i wan't overly impressed so i thought I'd give it another go. I've heard people say they're not a fan of the spomnge applicator, but this doesn't bother me. The concealer its is nice and light - ideal for the eye area. It has ok coverage, not the best coverage concealer I've ever used. I picked up the shade 02 which a couple shades light the my concealer which is perfect for highlighting. But thoughout the day it oxidized on me and left me with orange under eyes. So I'm not impressed with this.

Boujois Sun Illusion Primer | £7.95

This is supposed to be a primer. But to be honest the texture is really thick and mousse like. It kind of reminds me of Maybelline Matte mousse. So I didn't think it was the best idea to use this as a primer on my dehydrated skin. But I thought it might make a good contour product. Which it did. I was happy with the result! Once it was blended it dried down to a powder finish and left me with a nice subtle contour. I applied a few dots under my Cheek bones and then blended it out with a stippling brush. Only use a tiny amount though or this could go horribly wrong.

Bourjois Sun Illusion Bronzer | £7.99

I'm thoroughly enjoying a bronzy, glowy look. So to add a sunkissed look to the skin I reached for this. To be honest I'm not very happy with it. The shade is good, its a nice bronzy shade that leans slightly warm. But it just wouldn't apply smoothly, It went all patchy and just kind of made me look dirty. Maybe it was the brush or something, who knows, but I wasn't happy with the finished look.

Milani Rose Powder Blush | £8.99                                                                               POST

Another forgetten about favourite. Not only is the blush design stunning, it actually performs really well. The formula is soft, applies smoothy and its easy to blend. The shade Romantic Rose is a beautiful Mauve-y, rose colour.

Makeup Geek Shawdow Pans | £4.95

I'm all about Makeup Geek shadows at the moment. I just can't get enough of them. See this post for Swatches and more info. I went for the shade Creme Brulee in the crease, this is my ideal crease shade and I don't think I can now create a look without it! It's the most perfect, warmed toned, mid Brown colour, that effortlessly adds depths and dimension to any eye look. I went for Glamorous all over the lid. This shade is a Golden Copper colour with hints of Brown and a soft shimmer finish. This is another beautiful all over the lid colour, and lower lash line. Like the others this is well pigmented, blends easily and lasts all day. 

I've had this for a while so I thought it was time to dig it out and show it some love. Its a lovely neutral mid to dark Brown colour. That works well in the Outer V and lower lash with the Makeup Geek shades above. The formula is soft and easy to work and the pigmentation is good. 

Maybelline Lash sensational Mascara | £7.99

For mascara i reach for this without fail. Its one the best mascaras the drugstore has to offer. It gives amazing length, volume, doesn't flake and holds the curl all day. If you haven't already tried this, you need too! 

I love a Brown / nude lip (just see this post here and here) and I love the NYX butter glosses but I wanted something a bit more pigmented than gloss. So I picked one of NYXs Intense Butter glosses in the shade Chocolate Crepe. Which is a stunning, Brown colour with slight warm undertones. Its really pigmented like a liquid lipstick but doesn't dry them. So I get the best of both worlds - a great pigmentation but the low maintenance of a glow. Plus this smell is good enough to eat! I definitely want more shades of these! 

So thats my little play around with makeup! Have you tried any of these? What are thoughts? 

Until next time...
