Hi everyone! Life has been a bit busier than usual lately but of course I still manage to find some spare time for a bit of shopping! haha I don't want to babble too much, so will jump straight to describing everything I've picked up in the past month, with a little "first impressions" on each product.
I've heard so much rave about Nars eyeshadows and how incredible they are so I decided to finally give into the hype. Kalahari is a beautiful neutral duo, with a shimmering rosy bronze and shimmering taupe plum (as described by Nars). These shades have great pigmentation and next to no fall out. I think they're ideal for brown eyes but will also suit everyone. Whether you pair both eyeshadows for a smokey eye or wear them on their own, as a quick wash of colour, this is a fantastic and very travel friendly option. I'm obsessed with the bronze shade (left pan) on top of Mac Groundwork paint pot. So pretty!!!
Debenhams SS16 Beauty Press Show.
theBalm is a brand I haven't tried much from but now that it's available at Debenhams, I thought I no longer have an excuse. Matte lip products are highly on trend and Meet Matt(e) Hughes is definitely one to try. Great pigmentation, truly matte and very comfortable on the lips. Did I also mention it smells minty and it's not drying at all? I can't think of anything bad to say. I did expect it to endure eating and drinking a bit better than it does, but overall, it's a great lip product and I'm in love with the shade I have, Committed (a gorgeous mauve / pinky nude).
This is a NEW product from Rimmel and although I've only had it on my nails once, I really like it. The colour I picked up is a beautiful blush nude. The formula is smooth and the finish is glossy, as you'd expect from a traditional gel nail polish. The only downside is it's not as long lasting as I expected. It took about 5-6 days before it started chipping, which is better than most nail polishes on me, but still far from what it should be for a gel polish. I'll continue putting it to the test and will report back on Twitter (@speakinbeautyuk) and/or Instagram (@speakingbeautyuk).
