I thought I'd share the latest things that I've added to my beauty collection.
Maybelline Baby Lips Colour: The other night I had a moment of frustration when doing my makeup. As you may know, I wear my makeup like some of the styles prevalent during the 1960's - white shadow, large cat flicks and thick lashes. To compensate for this dramatic look the dolly-birds back in then would go easy on the cheeks and lips, opting for pale lipsticks and sheer slicks of frosted gloss. Usually I settle for just a tad of moisturizer to plump up my lips and darken them just a little to create this look, but to be quite frank, sometimes it just makes me feel like my face is a half-finished canvas. I'm not too big on wearing lipstick either. Other than red, I feel like nothing seems 'right'. So I picked up these tinted lip balms and so far so good! Nowhere near as overpowering as lipstick, and just subtle enough to give your lips a hint of colour, I think they are an okay solution to my frustrations. They are also a pretty decent mosturizer too. I picked two up, in Lolita Pink and Berry Crush, simply because I'm indecisive and couldn't choose!
LUSH Herbalism Fresh Facial Cleanser: To be perfectly honest, I don't have perfect skin. I've tried many different products over the years but I've come to realize that like many the more products that I put on my skin, the more troubled it becomes. So I decided to cut down on these and just try and stick to one thing to cleanse my face with. This cleanser is made from all natural ingredients and can also be used as a face mask. It leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and dewey and has helped clear it up a lot. I'll definitely be buying another pot of this once it runs out!
Rimmel 9-in-1 BB Cream SPF 25: I bought this product as a little bit of a try-out. I felt I needed something to protect my face whilst walking in the hot sun to University each day. It's pretty good and I'm quite pleased with it. It does do the job of protecting my skin and it does leave my skin with a healthy looking glow, but the palest colour on offer, 'Light', was still not quite pale enough to match my complexion. Though I'm not complaining, powder can fix that. It's also pretty easy and quick to apply which is great when I'm in a hurry as my usual mousse face makeup requires a lot more concentration.
