Mini Spring Makeup Haul

I may have bought a few new makeup items over the last few weeks, personally I blame the arrival of Spring, but it could quite possibly be my current addiction to Liquid Lipsticks taking over. I honestly have no self control, so for now we will ignore the Beauty Bay and NYX purchases (I'll touch on those another day) and just share what I picked up in Boots the other day.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours in Flirtation // Love // Devotion
I told you I went liquid lipstick mad and these aren't even the half of it, but I only (haha the irony) picked up three from my trip to Boots. Revlon had on a 3 for 2 offer, so I course had to pick up three (duh) just out of curiosity. I went for two signature Claire shades, "Flirtation" a pinky peach and "Love" an orange toned red. The bonus shade "Devotion" is a bit more out of my comfort zone as it's a pinky mauve shade, not a colour I normally go for "but when in Rome". I haven't tried these liquid lipsticks on my lips yet, but just by swatching them on my hand (below), I can already tell they have more of a stain finish rather than a true matte. Which for people who have yet to try liquid lipstick or if they find them a bit too uncomfortable, could be a winning formula.

Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Primer:
I've been looking for a "Drugstore" primer for a while, especially considering I've just finished my Kiehls one, so a cheaper alternative was on the cards. I swung by the S&G counter and this primer with it's "Pore-Shrink Technology" caught my attention, it's definitely up my street and at £10 it's pretty inexpensive too. I'll certainly be reporting back on this one, I've heard some good things so stay tuned.

  6. I know, I'm so glad they have become so popular, more and more companies are coming out with their own versions :)

  7. I need to try out more Soap & Glory products! Their makeup is finally available at Ulta in the States. I picked up a couple things from the line when I was in London and love them so I def need to go and pick up some more goodies to try. This primer is going on my list! Can't wait to hear what you think about it.

  8. Their bronzer and highlighters are supposed to be fantastic, as for the primer I will most definitely report back :)

  9. I would love to know what you think of the Revlon liquid lipsticks, especially seeing as they aren't the normal matte formula like you said! Flirtation looks so beautiful for this Spring time! Definitely want to know about the primer, my old one from KIKO ran out and am looking for a new one to replace it (without the hefty price tag!) xx


  10. I'm digging that shade Devotion so pretty. I have convinced myself enough not to buy makeup anymore but these are calling out to me, hold steady my heart!
