On a whim I bought this Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in The Missing Pink. Boots 3 for 2 is completely to blame!

I wasn’t expecting much from this lipstick just something I can throw on. Well I was completely wrong this has replaced my very loved MAC Patisserie lipstick. The shade of this lipstick is a pink nude, A your lips but better shade.

What I love about this formula is that it doesn’t dry out my lips and it wears off nicely. This lipstick applies really smoothly and you don’t need a mirror to apply this shade.

I can’t wait to pick up some more shades from this range.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush

When I saw these  Max Factor Creme Puff blushes, I knew I had to have them! They are hella gorgeous and they promise to contour, blush and highlight. You can count me in. Like everything these day’s all products have to be multi-tasking so let’s see if it stand up to the test.

I NEVER wear blush so this is new to me. The reason why I don’t wear blush is because I am very conscious of the redness in my skin and tend to spend ages conceal in it, so I have never dipped into blush really as I always find it emphasises the redness and let’s be honest, who wants that?

These in my opinions are the drugstore version of the Hourglass blushes. Have you seen them? They are equally as gorgeous! But reading many reviews online I think these Max Factor blushes may give Hourglass a run for their money.

There are 6 shades in the range. From a peachy pink  to brown pink  to berry for deeper skinniness. There is a blush for everyone in this range. I chose 10 Nude Mauve. As you can see this is a brown-y pink shade which I thought wouldn’t bring out my redness. It doesn’t!

These blushes are very silky in texture and blend so well into the skin. And the shade is perfect. It bronzes the skin whilst adding the tiniest amount of peachy pink tones to add a flush of cover and the highlight is really nice. No disco balls to be found here! I really love this blush and for someone who doesn’t wear blusher that is a statement.

What other shades do you recommend from this range? They are €11.49 in boots and well worth the money!

Here is a really easy one shadow smokey eye, that you are going to love and whats even better is that its from the drugstore!

The palette I have been using to create this eye look is Bourjois Smokey Eyes Palette in 04 Nude Ingenue I purchased mine from Boots. But you’ll find it at any Bourjois Counter in your area!

There is only one shade I use from this palette to create this eye look, its the gorgeous middle shade. It honestly make your eyes pop! It has a hint of shimmer that makes your eyes glisten and for me it is just the perfect brown eye shadow! Can you tell I love this shade! Sometimes for a bit of highlight I use the first colour and if Im honest I never use the last colour.

I honestly recommend getting this palette just so you can use that middle shade its amazing.

You can here me rave about the palette in an earlier blog post.

Palettes are something I love! Palettes combine all the best colours that complement each other.
