Hello World!

This is my first post and I am very excited!  I thought I would begin with a few fun little items I purchased recently from Crush Cosmetics.



These purchases were definitely a result of some major procrastination from studying for exams and I could not be happier with the results!  The eyeshadow palette is from Sleek Makeup in Oh So Special, this is a particular favourite of mine at the moment, I love the combination of shimmer and matte shades that compliment each other perfectly.  Although I’m normally not a fan of pink or peach eyeshadow, combined with the matte brown shades they look divine.

The second palette is also from Sleek Makeup, it is their Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette in Light.  The bronzer is actually fantastic, it is a matte formulation which is great for contouring and as the blush is quite shimmering it allows you to use the whole palette without looking like a disco ball.  I think this will be the perfect product to for travelling as well, its compact and has all the products you need for bronzing, blush and highlighting in one handy palette!

Like many people I hate cleaning my brushed!  It is a chore that I always leave till my brushes are pretty filthy.  I recently read a review of the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser so I thought I would give it a go.  So basically it is a round disk of soap, it doesn’t sound like anything special but it works brilliantly.  All you need to do is wet the soap and your brush and swirl it around until there is not more makeup left on the brush. Easy as that!  Plus it leaves your brushes smelling amazing.  When this runs out I will definitely be repurchasing.

Finally, I purchased the NYX Powder Blush in Taupe.  I had heard that this product was fantastic for contouring on fair skin and it is!  During winter I am very fair so normal bronzers can be a little dark for me when contouring, this taupe shade adds a light contour that looks natural by just adding a slight shadow underneath the cheek bones perfect for those fairer dames like me.

I hope you enjoyed my first post!  I can assure you I will continue to procrastinate and continue to do some major purchasing!
