With countless beauty products hitting the shelves daily I thought I'd create a round-up of my favourites from recent beauty releases.
As I love my bargain buys and with the high street getting ever more expensive (argh!) I've selected only affordable products with nothing more that £7 here. I hope you find a few new things to pick up!
Essence All About Roses Eyeshadow Palette - 03
£4.00 - Wilko online here or select Wilko stores
New Essence products will forever excite me as they are just incredible value for the quality you receive! Along with a whole hose of new releases for A/W, Essense have launched a range of "All About..." eyeshadow palettes that contain different tones per palette with this one being rosy neutrals that are oh so wearable. What I love about this specific palette is the shade range, with the lighter shades containing such fine shimmer and the deeper shades being of great pigmentation. I also love how smooth and lightweight these feel when blending them together. This is also a great palette to go for to take you out of your neutral browns comfort zone, I personally can't remember when I last wore purples and subtle pinks on my eyes but I certainly am now and I'm loving it.
L'Oreal True Match Blush - Rosewood
£6.99 - Superdrug here or at L'Oreal stands
A perfect neutral blush here for Autumn and the upcoming colder months. This warm toned pink is perfect for both fair and tanned complexions in different ways, for my own pale skin this gives a warm flush of colour that looks so natural and glowy, though it contains no shimmer. I also find the blush to be incredibly soft and very easy to blend. Also liking the mini brush (it's really not that bad at all) and the additional mirror that's been cleverly designed into the packaging - I'll be keeping this in my bag! If you are bombarded with blush choices when next shopping have a swatch of this, I'm sure you will like it!
Sleek Candy Tint Balm - Bon Bon
£6.99 - Superdrug in-store
Sleek are coming out with amazing products at the moment but one that really caught my eye was the range of six candy-inspired tint balms that really are juicy! Above is my favourite from the range, a lovely glossy nude pink tint that goes with any makeup and tastes pretty yummy. What I love most about the balms is that you get the look and tint of a gloss but without the sticky element and they nourish the lips. As I struggled to get a good enough swatch I will direct you to Really Ree's blog here where she's swatched the entire range. On another note, how nice is the matte black packaging?!
EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm - Pomegrante Raspberry
£6.50 - Boots here
Did you know Boots stocked Eos lip balms? Nope, neither did I! If you haven't tried Eos lip balms I'm warning you now - they are addictive. I don't know what it is but there is just something about them that makes you require more and more and the latest one you buy will always feel like the best one you've tried... until you buy another one! Slightly crazy ramble without punctuation aside, as you may have guess this is my latest favourite Eos balm in the most juicy fruit flavour you can imagine. These are perfect to throw in your bag and have no fingers involved in the application of this and with the wonderful smooth dome to the lip balm applying this is quite addictive. If lip balms are your thing or you just need a new one, make it this!
Colab Luxe Shine Glossing Hair Fragrance
£4.99 - Feel Unique here or Superdrug in-store
Another wonderful launch from the beautiful blogger that's Ruth Crilly here! Venturing into more hair styling products Ruth has come up with this luxury looking products that's a two-in-one shine spray and hair fragrance. Now I will admit I'm not a fan of the scent, I don't hate it but nor do I love it, it just has too much of a hairspray scent for me that I'm a bit surprised with really. But that aside the product is so worth it as a glossing spray especially on ultra straight or curly locks to really pick up the light. I also love that the spray works with fine hair (annoyingly my own hair type) and with the feather light mist you cannot feel it in the hair. If it hasn't of been by Colab I doubt I'd be interested in a shine mist but now I have it I'm loving adding shine back into my hair once I'm done styling it.
Hope you've discovered some new high street products here!
