New In The Make Up DrawerFriday, 11 March 2016
I finally got round to getting some new arrivals in my make up collection and boy they are wonderful. After realising I'm quite the make up hoarder, I had a massive clear out of my stash and obviously had to replenish that. Everything is now in it's own box dependent on it's use... ADULTING.
First up we have the Freedom Pro Highlight in the shade Diffused. I have previously been using the Sleek contour and highlighting kit however I've had it for a while now and I'm scraping the edges to get any sort of decent amount out of the pan. That's where this beauty comes in. I've been a fan of Freedom for a while. It's good quality, has a great range of products, they are cruelty free and affordable. It's subtle but effective at the same time which is good for me as it's not too overpowering but does the job and leaves a lovely glowing sheen to the skin.
I have gone through a lot of brow products in my time. Pens, pencils, powders, you name it, I've tried it. They've either run out and I haven't been able to find it again easily such as american brands bought on holiday, or run out stupidly quickly that it just isn't worth it to keep repurchasing. The colours of this duo are perfect for my brows, I tend to use the lighter shade predominately and the dark for any sparse areas.
It finally happened. I got my hands on Glastonberry by Charlotte Tilbury* and I am over the moon. Let's first of all mention the packaging. It's BEAUTIFUL and rose gold so what is there not to love? In my opinion it's the perfect matte berry shade. It's matte but without being super matte, in fact they are designed to keep your lips smooth as a baby's butt (what is this saying honestly?) as stated on the website "Exclusively enriched with Lipstick Tree extract which protects lips and is a natural anti-oxidant, and Orchid Extract which soothes and hydrates for a soft, buildable cashmere finish".
Let's get to the point shall we, when I opened this I pretty much cried. I have always loved Chanel products from a far and never thought I'd own any. I don't know why... maybe it's because I'm more of a high street brand girl on a budget so I always treat luxury products as gold. Weird? Probably.
Anyway, I am a girl who loves her red lipsticks and this is THE red lipstick of all red lipsticks. It's a satin finish and has amazing staying power which is perfect for long days or night out.
