I’ve been picking up bits and pieces over the past few weeks and I’ve accumulated a few things I thought were worth sharing…

L’Oreal Nude Cushion Foundation | £9.99

I’d seen this product floating around the blogosphere for a while and I couldn’t resist the temptation any longer. I picked this up in Boots and it was the last one in my shade (porcelain) so I was pretty chuffed. Its an interesting concept to have a foundation within a cushion, but I can’t get enough of this stuff. Its really dewy, with a medium coverage but its definitely build-able. I’ve been applying this with my real techniques sponge and it looks lovely.

Seventeen Stay Time Concealer | £4.49

I think this has been mentioned on this blog like a million times already buuut I picked up another one of these bad boys. I adore this concealer, its creamy, long lasting and has a great coverage. I think the best thing about it though is the shade, its super light for my pale skin and really brightens under the eyes. If you’re looking for a cheap concealer, I’d highly recommend you pick this up!

NYX High Definition Blush in Taupe | £5.50

Another blogger inspired purchase, but I’m so glad I picked it up. I finally found a NYX stand in a Boots kind of close to me and I was super happy. This is classed as a ‘blush’ however I’m not sure why, because its more of a bronze shade. Anyhow, I’m using this as a contour shade. Its perfect for my pale skin as its very cool toned which I’m all about. This really helps to give me those chiseled cheekbones I long for!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue | £15

Okay so this is my first Too Faced purchase, so I was quite excited. I actually got this from TK Maxx (oh I do love you TK Maxx) and it was only £7. I was so happy when I saw they had a few Too Faced bits hanging around, and I thought I’d give this ago being it was £7. This stuff is incredible for making eyeshadow look pigmented and staying on your lids ALL day. The longevity of this is just fab. It reduces fall out as well, so you don’t have glitter hanging around under your eyes like you normally would. Thumbs up from me!
