Opps, I headed off to Cork last week accidentally wandered into Boots and New Look........I blame my cousin for enabling me to buy the make up !!
|I chose the Colour Fair|
While I was at the seventeen counter the Flawless Poreless Primer also caught my eye. The only primer I have ever had was a sample size of Benefits Porefessional (which is amazing) but I wanted an affordable primer I could wear going to work or go out. Unlike Porefessional it comes in pressed powder typecontainer. I'm looking forward to trying it out before work.
The highstreet/drugstore make up I love the most has to be Bourjois. The majority of my foundations have been Bourjois and I love their eye shadows. On this particular trip there was a Buy One get one half price, so they twisted my arm and I purchased theBourjois Colour Edition 24H in Or Desir and the 1 Seconde Gel Texture Nail Polish in Beige Distiction. The Cream to powder eyeshadow looks like a rose-gold/brown but comes up much more sheer on the skin. I plan on using this as an eyelid primer for my Naked Palette as well as wearing it on its own.The Nail Polish is a nude with an salmon undertone. Instead of nude nails, it almost Looks like the colour of Barbies' nails in my opinion, I like it, a change from the nudes with a more of a brown/grey undertone.
The final thing I bought in Boots was the ecotools Fresh and Flawless Five Piece complexion set. This set has a flat concealer brush, a buffing concealer brush, a precision foundation brush, a complexion blending brush and a full powder brush. I don't know if I'll use all the brushes for their intended purposes but they are super soft and cruelty free so I shall give em a whirl and get back to ye.
I ran out of my foundation recently and I went to my local pharmacy to try out the new bourjois Healthy Mix foundation...........but they were out of my shade, and I needed a foundation for work so I ended up picking up the Catrice Photo Finish 18 hour liquid foundation and I picked up the colour rosy beige. This has a higher coverage than I'm used to, so I am only really wearing it at night, but it is long lasting and matches me well and the price is reasonable for the amount of product you get.

I also picked up two of the Catrice Pure Shine colour lip balms in the Colours 'Don't think just pink' and 'Glamazona'. 'Glamazona' was limited edition but it a gorgeous hot pink and Don't Think Just Pink is a very cute nude-pink. I love these because I can just pop them into my bag and apply them on the go. They're not too sticky and they are lovely and moisturising. I highly recommend them.
And Finally the last thing I bought recently were these black lace up ankle boots. I had been on the lookout for some black boots and thought I actually wanted some Chelsea boots, but I saw these and they just called out to me. when I wear them I kinda feel like I should be off trekking somewhere I've never been before and they're cute and didn't cost too much either.
OK deep breath, that was quite a lot of stuff. If you'd like to know about any of the things I got in more detail comment or tweet me @niamhmlny.
