Soft Damson

We all have that one staple item in our makeup collection which we seem to purchase over and over again, whether it be a luxury item or not, we simply can not see ourselves without it. Now this is just it, the No7 mineral perfection blusher in soft damson. Omg, this stuff is amazing and some may disagree but we really do love it!

I remember picking this up about 4 years back and every since, this has been one to sit near the top of our best blushes list (Don't worry guys this particular one isn't 4 years old we did repurchase!) Now I know not everyone is a huge fan of loose powders as they can get pretty messy, especially this particular type of packaging, but using this product for years now, it definitely has gotten easier to handle. A good technique is to sprinkle a little of the powder onto the lid and use your brush to swirl it around to pick up the product.

We like to use this especially for everyday makeup, as it is very subtle and not the in-your-face type of blush. The fact that it is a mineral powder, makes it all that more natural looking on the skin, containing very, very tiny hints of glitter, so small you can barely see, which is great for a day to day basis. This specific colour, soft damson, is a soft light pink shade which is so flattering. I find it completes my makeup look perfectly. Its definitely a product we reach for all the time and the great thing is, it lasts so long as you only need a small amount of product each time. 
Retails for £9.00 at Boots (also comes with an incredibly cute brush)

Mini Mac And Body Shop Haul

Yep, we did it again, another haul! We popped into town a few days ago and we simply couldn't resist picking up a few beauty bits which were simply calling out to us (not literally of course!) We didn't go completely crazy and hence why it is a 'mini' haul, so I think we deserve a good pat on the back for holding back the temptation of almost breaking the bank. First we headed to Selfridges which is one of my favourite places to shop for beauty products, and we picked up a lipstick which we're really loving at the moment. You can check out one of our other posts here on a Selfridges beauty event we attended a while back. After a long stop at selfridges, spending hours admiring all the beauty goods, we headed to the body shop and did some 'hauling' over there too! Here are few bits we picked up.

Mac retro matte lipstick- Ruby woo
This particular Mac lipstick is pretty well known I'm sure. The famous ruby woo shade is the perfect red and compliments any skin tone really well. It isn't orangey at all (as we aren't huge fan of orange toned lipsticks) but a nice deep matt red colour which is a classic beauty essential to own. I spotted this particular colour on my cousin a few weeks go and once she told me it was ruby woo, I just knew I had to have it!

Body shop all-in-one BB cream - 02
We are always on the hunt for a good BB cream which is moisturising, evens out the skin tone and doesn't break you out...I know, we're asking for almost perfection here but theres got to be one out there perfect for our skin right? One of favourites has to be the Garnier BB cream which I find pretty moisturising, however we've recently heard a lot about this body shop all in one BB cream and thought we would give it a try. The women in the shop was so nice and kindly got it matched to our skin tone which was brilliant. I can't wait to give this a trial run.

Body shop all-in-one cheek colour - Guava
Luckily for us there was a 3 for 2 offer in body shop, happy days! So that means more beauty shopping for us. As we were roaming around looking at the wonderful goodies that body shop had to offer, I randomly tested a little of this blush onto my skin and really loved the colour of it so I thought why not!

Body shop honey bronzer - 04
Now the best till last, the body shop honey bronzer. We have been itching to get our hands on this for ages ever since we've heard essiebutton raving about this! First of all lets just take a moment and appreciate the beautiful packaging and the honey comb pattern inside, I just love it! I believe there are four shades to choose from, so you can pick up one suiting your preference. Hopefully we will have a review of this product soon on the blog so keep your eyes peeled!

So thats it for our haul, we hope you guys enjoyed reading it and we would love to know what you guys liked from this haul. Let us know in the comments! xx

An Awesome Drugstore Brow Product

So a few weeks back in our boots haul we picked up a whole array of beauty stuff, with most of the products being totally random buys (welcome to the world of beauty bloggers!) There is one particular product which clearly stood out for us...and yes, its all to do with the brows.

The Max Factor eyebrow pencil is definitely not a product we've heard about before, but until now we have been using this pencil non stop and clearly abandoned all of our other brow pencils, now thats saying something! The formula of the pencil really impressed me as it didn't smudge easily on the brows like previous ones I've used. Now we all know what a pain that can be. Also it doesn't appear to be very obvious on your brows but instead quite subtle, giving a natural look. I personally found it very comfortable and easy to apply and its the perfect product to whip out when you need a speedy brow fix up as you can quite quickly do up your brows and then you're good to go. Trust me it saves alot of time! Especially when you're in a rush and you dont have time to pull out that brow kit and do a rather time consuming brow routine.

We purchased it in the colour ebony-1, which we found to be the perfect colour for both of us. It is a black/dark grey shade which really compliments those with dark brow hairs. So if you guys are on the look our for a good brow pencil, which is affordable then we would definitely recommend this one.

Let us know what you guys like to use for your brows! xx
