I had some money burning a hole in my pocket and decided that a trip to Boots was the best solution. I went in deciding that I wanted a lipliner and maybe some nail varnish, but I came out with rather more than that.
L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation in Shade 1
I was intrigued by these cushion foundations from the get-go, and after reading several reviews and watching many a youtube video, I decided that I would have to make my own mind up. I picked up the lightest shade, which is still a touch too dark for me right now. It gives a slight warmth to my skin, making me look like I have a very slight tan. I found it to be quite light coverage but buildable, and very moisturising on the skin. I think this is fab for travelling, as although using a beauty blender helps for all those awkward corners, you can manage with the built in compact sponge.
I’m still making my mind up on this one. I was after a nude eyeliner for my waterline, as I think white can be a bit harsh at times. However, this seemreally dark and not all my kind of nude, so I may try awhite one. If anyone knows of a paler nude eyeliner please let me know!
I was after more of a nude lipliner, as I only really own bright reds for some reason. This is really nice pinky nude, which looks more mauve toned on my lips and isn’t reflected in the initial swatch. It lasts relatively well, but it’s not amazing.
I’ve yet to give this one a go, but I was after a nice, clarifying clay mask to really tighten up the skin and leave me feeling super cleansed. Hopefully this will do the job!
I’m sceptical about the benefits of coconut water and oil in nail varnish, but I just loved this colour so much that I bought it anyway. This is going on my nails asap!
So there you have it! Just a few bits I’ve picked up lately. I imagine the rest of money will be going on the books in my Autumn Reading List.
