My Recent Makeup Purchases 

I absolutely love buying new makeup! I think you could probably call it an obsession 🙈 I popped into my local Superdrug the other day and treated myself to a few new products. 


I was looking for a high street foundation that I could wear everyday. I chose the Maybelline dream satin liquid foundation in the shade ivory (as I am so pale at the moment and desperately need summer!). I used to wear dream matte mouse about 6 years ago and never wore Maybelline foundation again after that faze so I thought it was worth going to back to the brand and trying a different product. The colour matches my skin tone perfectly and it applies really well with a damp beauty blender, I find it doesn’t last as long as some of my other foundations but for the price it’s definitely one that I will repurchase.


I also got a new concealer also by Maybelline called dream lumi touch. It is a highlighting concealer which is greater for brightening under your eyes. I do use this with my Collection lasting protection concealer as I like it to be very full coverage. It works really well with the foundation but it isn’t as full coverage as I would like.


I needed a new powder to replace my MAC studio fix so I bought the Rimmel stay matte powder in the shade transparent as I always see so many people talking about it. I use it to set my foundation and it is perfect for what I want it for. It doesn’t leave my face feeling or looking powdery which I have found with some other high street powders. I would definitely recommend it as it is really affordable!


The last item I bought was this amazing Rimmel palette. It is a highlighter, contour bronzer and blush and it is so perfect and will be so handy for travel as it is a three in one! I always use Benefit Hoola to contour but I have fallen in love with this bronzer and love it nearly as much as my Hoola. The blush is such a pretty pink and I will definitely be wearing it a lot more in the Spring. The highlighter isn’t amazingly glowy but it is really nice for everyday and the colours work so well together.

So these are my new products, I hope you liked this post. Let me know if you have tried any of these products or if there is anything that you have bought recently.
