I was trying all that bronzer/golden eye shadow/nude lips look for a while but I came back to what I love and to what works for me – red and berry.
After a week of being sick at home, I’ve decided to go and get some new makeup products, as a little pick-me-up treat and since I haven’t got anything new in forever (and I mean colour & cosmetics, not beauty products in general). And I’ve decided to get some drugstore products I’ve been meaning to pick up for some time now.
First of all, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (you can get it on-line for £8.99 from Feel Unique).
Yes, just when their Aqua Laque is the new big thing – I’ve finally got the original version. And I really, really love it. It feels weightless on the lips and gives a gorgeous matte wash of colour. I’ve chosen the shade 01 personne ne rouge which is a beautiful red. Stay tuned for a detailed review and lip swatches.
Maybelline ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 310 Berry Much.
Another product I’ve been meaning to get for a while but never did since I have so many berry and plum lipsticks in my personal makeup bag already. But, hey, it turned out that I did not have the identical shade, and it is also very affordable – so it’s a score!
Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise.
Now, this I did not plan on buying. But I saw it and really loved the colour, since it reminded me of my all time favourite Marc Jacobs Lola. Will see how similar they actually are when applied, and will report back. I am wearing it on my nails as I type this, and it is a prefect shade for summer, a bright red with a hint of orange.
Next on my (affordable) list is Soap & Glory makeup range and Zoeva brushes. Any recommendations?
