Whoa, well I assure you it wasn't supposed to be almost a whole month since my last post, but with Belgium and Ibiza thrown into the mix (amazing times all very well documented on my Instagram!), I became all very slack on the beauty blogging front. The 'trying out beauty front' on the other hand was a very different matter and I have SO many new finds to share with you over my next few posts, starting today with three spring offerings.
THE GOOD: Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray // I've always been a big fan of makeup setting sprays, particularly from Urban Decay, as I find they're a great way to add glow back into a long lasting base. So it's no surprise I've fallen head over contour for this new vitamin-infused complexion prep spray from the big UD. Not only does this prep, set and refresh makeup, it also comes with all sorts of skincare benefits such as the ability to reduce redness, minimise pores and absorb pesky oil. I've been using this as a toner before moisturiser twice a day and my skin seems to be loving it and behaving itself for once!
THE GREAT: Benefit Hoola Brush // I've always struggled to find the ideal contour brush- some have been so big they've turned my whole face into a rather more questionable level of bronzed, but others have been too thin, making the whole sculpting situation a little too stripy. Cue those babes at benefit strolling in with a brush as technically perfect as it is pretty (look at that oh-so-shiny gold handle). Use with Hoola or any other bronzer for a golden sweep that gives you colour and cheekbones in equal complexion perfection measure.
THE DISAPPOINTING: Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle De Velvet Lipstick // I've been caught hook, line and lipstick for the Bourjois Rouge Editions ever since velvets first hit Boots' shelves and caused a frenzy. However, I'm sad to report the new souffles don't have me swooning all over the makeup aisle. Promising a sheer-matte coverage and finish, I had high hopes this peachy pink could be my ultimate barely there spring lip, but the reality is a formula barely there for about an hour that wears down so unevenly you need to start the whole debacle again. My advice? Stick to 'Hot Pepper'.
