New favourites in my makeup collection

Long time no speak, again. I’m still so busy recently and if you’re wondering why my posts are a little unscheduled compared to normal I explained it all in my most recent post and on top of the business I’ve had a cold from hell all week (well, since Friday) so I’ve been a little bit behind with my blog, I really wanted to write a post though, I’m having a few writers block recently as well so just bear with me, it turns out you can get a little out of touch with writing posts when you haven’t done it in a couple months.

Anyway, let’s get on with the post. I’ve been a little naughty with my spending recently (OOPS!) and treated myself to a few bits and I’ve found some solid new faves.


Urban Decay ‘Naked Skin’ Foundation


My first new fave is the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation, I went for the shade ‘0.5’ and to be completely honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from this but I tried it out and now I’m never buying anything else and I’m not being dramatic. The formula of this is quite watery and thin which made me worry about the coverage a little but one thin layer of this covers most of my acne which is ridiculously impressive for such a thin, lightweight foundation. I’m ridiculously impressed with this






Urban Decay ‘Deslick’ Setting spray


Next is the Urban Decay De-slick setting spray, I only really brought this because it’s on sale ( I really didn’t need anymore setting spray) but oh my god, it was so needed. With the temperatures so high and with the fact that I work in a kiosk that’s been hitting 40 degrees recently my make-up has not lasted 5 seconds, so I tried this setting spray out the other day and my makeup lasted a solid 8-10 hours, it still looked fresh. I will say I do have oily skin so this is perfect for me but there are different versions of this product tailored to different skin types.



MUA eye-define eyeliner



The MUA eye defines liquid eyeliner is another firm favourite. I mainly like this because it has a long nib, I really hate those eyeliners that have proper short nibs, I just can’t use em!. This is also like jet black rather than that faded grey ya sometimes come across and the best part about it? it cost all of about £3.




Real Techniques blending sponge



After absolutely despising beauty blenders (well I say beauty blenders I mean the little £2 ones you find in Primark and boots) I decided to buy an actual decent sponge to try but at the same time I didn’t want to splash out on an actual beauty blender, I’ve read so many great things about the Real Techniques  blending sponge and I am obsessed. This blends make-up flawlessly and they’re super affordable I’d 100% recommend it if you’re on a budget.


Revolution Blush palette


There are some items of make-up I find easy to apply and some that have taken me quite a lot of practice and one of those is contouring, the dreaded contouring, I find whenever I buy contouring ‘duos’ the shades are just never right for me, they’re either bright orange or too cool and look muddy, there’s just not a lot of in-between and the shades are just never right for my skin tone I find either way it seems to end up looking ridiculous. I decided I would get a contour kit, I’ve seen them around a lot and I always think I’m going to buy one and never actually end up doing it, I saw the Revolution one like dirt cheap and whacked it straight into my basket. I really like the variety of shades in this and I love the fact it has 2 baked blushes in there as well, the bronzers blend out as well which makes it even better. I couldn’t find this exact one but I have linked a simular one below.




!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

Have you tried any of these bits? What did you think?.

  1. I used to love the Real Techniques sponges then I just stopped using them for some reason and I have no idea why?? I think I'll have to grab a new one and rekindle my love. I really want to try the Naked Skin foundation, I've played with it on the back of my hand and I love the texture, I'm just a little too pale for 0.5 though which is really annoying!! x Sophie
