I didn’t realise this until I started this post and really thought about what I’ve been buying, but I’ve bought a lot of new makeup items recently. Well…it’s a lot of new items for me! So I thoughts I’d write a post to share these items because I absolutely love them all. So let’s get started!
NYX Blush – Bitten
This blush is amazingly pigmented. It has the smallest amount of shimmer that’s not even noticeable on your face but it is in the pan. And I love the colour of this blush, it’s literally my natural blush so works like a dream.
NYX Eyeshadow Pencil – Yoghurt
Eyeshadow Pencils are my new favourite makeup item! This is in only one I own (I’ve asked for more for Christmas – fingers crossed) and I neeeed more. They are so creamy, they blend like a dream, they last all day and are so versatile (I have used it on its own or with a colour in my crease and I love both looks). I’d hands down recommend picking one up and trying it.
NYX Butter Gloss – Angel Food Cake
This was my first ever lip product I’ve picked up for NYX and I love it. Years ago I remember trying to find lipglosses and the products always used to smell awful. But this one smells like Vanilla Cake. And it’s not a sticky consistency either. This one is such an everyday colour that I sometimes wear it on its own, or with a different lip colour underneath and this to add some shine.
Barry M Mani Nail Varnish – Bashful
I picked myself this nail varnish up about a month ago and it’s so good. Its the perfect natural nail colour. My nails are always splitting or breaking and since using this, they don’t. If I can’t be bothered I wear this nail varnish on its own, but when I can, I use this as a base coat and then top it with another colour. I would say that this nail varnish has a matte feel, it’s not shiny, which initially I thought was weird but not anymore. And you can just put a coat of clear nail varnish over the top which takes away that matte feel and it still stops my nails splitting.
Barry M Oil Free Foundation – Porcelain
I also picked this foundation up about a month ago and it is hands down my favourite foundation. It is light to medium coverage but fairly buildable. It evens out my skin tone and lasts all day. I apply this at 6:30am and don’t take it off until after 6pm and it hasn’t moved all day! I do set it with a translucent powder though to help it last. I’d highly recommend giving this a try if you have oily skin.
Barry M Illuminating Strobe Cream – Frosty Pink
This highlight is my perfect everyday highlight. It goes perfectly on the top of my cheek bones and stays put all day. Sometimes I forget I’m wearing it and then I catch a glimpse of it in a mirror or something reflective and I remember how amazing it looks.
Eylure False Eyelashes
This was one of my most recent purchases and I haven’t gotten round to using them yet. I have never, ever, worn false eyelashes. But it’s something I want to give a try, so that if I had a special occasion or something, I would be comfortable wearing them.
