I’ve been testing out lots of new makeup releases, and I wanted to share my three favourites with you. These products are perfect to take you from summer to autumn and onwards. There’s a chic eyeshadow palette, a stunning blusher and a new liquid lipstick that packs a punch.
Bobbi Brown LE Camo Luxe Eye and Cheek Palette* – £49.50, Bobbi Brown
This is such a luxe feeling and looking palette. It’s compact, but has a good weight to it, and the camo print is very autumnal. The palette contains six matte, metallic and sparkle green, brown and grey eyeshadow shades, as well as one golden highlighter; which also works great as an additional eyeshadow. You have a matte eyeshadow in Bone, a matte eyeshadow in Wheat, a matte eyeshadow in Cool Grey, a metallic eyeshadow in Smokey Brown, a sparkle eyeshadow in Camo, and a matte eyeshadow in Cool Brown. These are very versatile colours and can be used to create a very subtle eye look, or a real statement eye. There is very little fallout from these shadows, and they are very pigmented and blend beautifully. I think this is a real Bobbi Brown collector piece, and would make a great gift. The highlighter is a warm gold (Warm Glow) that is so smooth an buttery in texture. It too blends into the skin very well, and will help you keep that bronzed look you’ve loved all summer.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher in Pillow Talk* – £30, Charlotte Tilbury
The new Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blushers are two-tone, and Pillow Talk is the shade to accompany that legendary lipstick and lip liner shade. The blusher has a muted pink outer, with a champagne centre, and gives a stunning, gentle, rosy glow when swirled together. Use the centre as a highlighter shade too. I have very pale skin, and Pillow Talk is a great choice for me, to just give me a bit of healthy colour. It has tiny luminous gold flakes in it too, so you get a gorgeous multi-dimensional look and radiance. This is a blusher that’s perfect all year round, and is definitely one to have in your collection. I love the luminous look that this gives me, and it’s all done with clever Light Flex Technology, gold particles and crushed pearl particles.
Buxom Va Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick* – £15, Feel Unique
These new plumping liquid lipsticks from Buxom are stunning. They have the typical Buxom lip-plumping, tingling sensation and they are incredibly pigmented and glossy. These are real statement lipsticks, and they come in 20 different shades. My favourites are the salmon Feel The Passion, and the bright red Make It Hot. These lipsticks have curved doe foot applicatiors, so they hug the contours of your lips to give you a perfect look in just one swipe. They are so easy to apply never dry out the lips. These are really strong colours, so they do stain your lips immediately. You get such long-lasting colour and shine with these. They don’t dry down completely, so you do get transfer, but this keeps your lips comfortable, and looking plump and luscious. There is a unique peptide and Hyaluronic Acid booster contained in these lipsticks, to keep your lips hydrated and to support your lips’ natural collagen.
