What's on my face this week...

Tuesday, 27 August 2013

Yesterday I did the usual thing that I do on a Sunday, Bank Holidays always end up being my Sunday and I sat on the floor surrounded by makeup to choose what to have in my makeup box this week. Except this week was a little different as it has followed a trip to boots where some of the haul has ended up straight in the weekly makeup.

First off, the old bits, the ever loved Benefit They're Real Mascara, the one I hoped I would hate but actually love. This tube is nearing the end of it's lash defining life (luckily I have two more!) so am just using this one up. I have a couple of other mascaras to try and find a good dupe after this. I have been using cream bronzers for a good couple of weeks now so it's back to my Sleek Contour Kit for a while. 

For eyeshadows it's going to be the MUA eyeshadow palette for some neutral looks as I've been lazing it up with cream shadows recently. With my Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer to well hope that it wakes me up in the morning. I really like this concealer and now I have my snazzy camera I can show you just how much it improves my under eye circles!

Now for the exciting new bits. First up, the Beauty Blender (Leanne heavily influenced this purchase and now I have photos of it I can use it #bloggerprobs) I actually can't wait to dab this on my face, it's so so soft. Then for the new base products, first up was a simple repurchase but in a paler shade. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in shade 51, although it's been reformulated so I hope it hasn't changed much because I loved the old formula. Another Bourjois purchase (3 for 2) was the BB Bronzer, to be honest not 100% sure what this does, but I am going to have a blog read up tonight! I also picked up the bronzer primer in the little pot. Finally for a new base product to try (and something I've heard lots about) is the Dr Jart BB, but the water version. Hope to report good things back on this one, especially as it made the back of my hand look amazing :)

What's been your go to products this week?
