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.
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.
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.
What beauty products have you picked up ready for the new spring season?
