The end of the month is when I’m most likely to buy and try new products. I’ve been paid and the drug store is just calling my name. I go in to buy shampoo and I come out with two new eye shadow palettes, another foundation and nail varnish in colours I already own! Of course this month is no different, but I now have you guys to share my beauty finds with. So welcome to my October vanity edit.
Simple kind to skin micellar cleansing wipes
I’m a big fan of micellar water and it plays a big part in my skincare regime. So when I saw these in Sainsburys I had to buy them. I have only used them for a couple of days so far and already I’m not even sure how I managed to go this long without them. My make up comes off so easily, I don’t have to scrub my face to get it all off.
No7 Stay perfect shade and define eyeshadow stick | Glistening Ray
I’ve been wanting to try an eye shadow stick for a while now. So I went around and swatched every brand had to offer.With the No7 I had to scrub my hand to get the eyeshadow off, so it is long lasting which makes me love it even more. I also tried using it with my mac corduroy powder eyeshadow in my crease. Which did look really nice but after a couple of hours it had moved and looked as if I had put it on in the dark.
So this was very much an impulse buy. I don’t need it. I have six foundations already! Why did I need another one??? I did originally saw it advertised in a magazine and I am interested in seeing if it actually works. But definitely didn’t need it.
Real Techniques concealer brush
A good concealer is definitely something I’ve been missing from my brush collection. Especially as I do have a lot of blemishes I like to cover. With my brushes I think its really important to pay a little more for the brushes and while real techniques won’t break the bank they are good quality.
Revolution ultra metals contour brush
When it comes to contouring I love using the brush in Benefits Hoola, but I hate using the brush on other products. I saw this and it looks exactly the same to the Hoola brush. It also has metal effect like the Real Techniques bold metal brushes which I am obsessed with. The revolution collection is definitely more affordable, which helps.
I’ve been on a hunt for a good primer for what feels like forever and I just can’t seem to find one that actually helps to keep my makeup. I’ve seen so many people talk on Youtube about how good this primer is and I really wanted to give it a try. So far I love the consistency of the primer and I do believe it is actually keeping all my makeup in place.
