New To My Makeup Bag

Last Friday was pay day and what better way to celebrate than a trip to the beauty aisles of Boots.  I also went cray cray in Superdrug but I'll post that post later just spread it out.  At Boots it looks like I went Soap and Glory mad, but there a great 3 for 2 offer on and I haven't tried anything from their beauty line.   Here is what I got.

Soap and Glory Glow All Out | LINK
I initially thought this was a highlighter but apparently it is in fact a luminising face powder.  Isn't that basically the same thing? Anyways this is a pinky toned micro shimmery highlighting powder -  which can be used all over the face not just to highlight key areas.  I'm the not the best at highlighting as I usually can't be asked,  but since getting this I have been loving it. 

Soap and Glory Solar Powder | LINK
I think this is one of the most talked about bronzers out there.  I blame watching Lily Pebbles for this purchase, as she made me do it.  Well not really,  but yet again like highlighting bronzing up my cheeks is never very high on my requirements list.   But this powder makes it so easy to achieve.  The duo bronzer has a dark matte shade and a lighter slightly shimmery golden companion.  Use individually or swirl together,  you'll get a lovely sun-kissed look to your face.  Love it.

Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick - Bashful | LINK
This was free SandG item in the 3 for 2 offer and I love it.  It's the perfect everyday pink.   Not too sticky and glossy which is great for me as I hate sticky glossy glosses. Lasting power is excellent too.  I can get away without reapplying for a few hours. Oh and by the way it smells yummy too!

Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder | LINK
This is a repurchase.  Why?  Because it's good and cheap. It claims to keep oiliness at bay for 16 hours,  which is a tad of an exaggeration from Seventeen.  However I do believe it works,  just not for 16 hours!!  I have to reapply throughout the day and it is a thin passed powder that doesn't look to heavy on the skin.

Rimmel Brow This Way - Dark Brown | LINK
I've always been fascinated with these mascara for the brows. Benefit sell them but to be honest I weren't going to pay an arm and a leg for that one.  Sometimes cheaper alternatives work just as well.  The dark brown shade (pictured) is the perfect match for my hair shade and you can really see the difference once this is applied.  Word of warning though,  remove excess product from the brush first.

Do you new have any new items in your makeup bag?
