New In

When I'm in a bad mood, nothing cheers me up like a spot of retail therapy. The other week, nothing seemed to be going right for me so I wandered into town and picked up a few new beauty things. 

First up was the Rimmel Brow This Way Clear Brow Gel. I've never actually owned a clear brow gel and I find that Benefits Gimmie brow can be a little too much, so for £3.99 I decided to give it ago. I actually really like this, it doesn't leave your brows crispy like a clear mascara does, it just sets them in place whilst still leaving them brow like.

Then there was an offer on the Maybelline stand - buy one get one half price, so I picked up their new Colour Drama Lip Pencils in the shade Nude Perfection. It's a gorgeous warm nude/brown shade, perfect for a modern twist on the 90's trend, it's a matte finish but it's not too drying and lasts a good while on the lips. Plus it's super handy for traveling with it's sleek pencil like style. The other product I got was a new brow product. I've never seen anything like this before, it's the Maybelline Brow Satin, on one end it has a very fine nibbed crayon and the other is a sponge with a coloured powder on it. It's such a conveniant idea, this all in  one product is fabulous for on the go or traveling. I picked it up in medium brown as the swatch of the dark blonde appeared a little too warm toned for me, plus I'm trying to transition my brows to be a little darker for A/W. Stay tuned for a full review coming soon, with swatches.

There was also a repurchase of my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade fair. I've gone through about 300 bottles of the stuff, it's by far the best drugstore concealer out there, but you probably already new that because almost everyone has tried it.

I've been in desperate need of a new face powder for ages so I took the advice from a
Anna from viviannadoesmakeup and picked up the Bourjois Healthy Balance powder in the shade 52. This not only mattifies the skin but it also adds a bit of coverage. It claims to keep the skin matte, which is quite a bold claim so I'll be sure to let you know once I've done a bit of testing.

In Waitrose they had an offer on the Yes To range, so I decided to try out the Yes To Grapefruit exfoliating wipes. Lilly Pebbles has gone on about these for a while, they are essentially facial wipes with brightening properties that I use in the morning if I'm either to lazy to cleanse or if my skin is rather dull. 

The final product I picked up was the Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express mascara. I was meant to pick up the waterproof version, but clearly failed miserably. I'm not too fussed though, I quite like the formula of this one although it definitely doesn't make my lashes look false.
