There have been quite a few new high street makeup items that I’ve been really impressed with recently, so I thought I’d round them up in one post so you’ll know what to fill your basket with on your next shopping trip.
Let’s talk about my favourite high street makeup brand first – Sleek MakeUP. Their new Colour Corrector Palette (£7.99 from Superdrug) is a great concealer palette for those who suffer with tonal imperfections. Whether it’s dark circles under your eyes (orange), redness on your cheeks (green) or unwanted freckles (blue), one of these six colours will even things out. The formula is quite thick and creamy, so use under your foundation to keep everything hidden.
A very affordable product i’ve been loving is the new Sunkissed Highlights Instant Radiance Cream (£3.99 from Sunkissed). This is a great dupe for the Cover FX Highlighting Custom Enhancer Drops as it is literally like molten metal. It looks so pretty dabbed along cheekbones or even mixed in with foundation to give you a dewy glow.
Onto a makeup tool now, the new Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Miracle Diamond Sponge (£12 from Boots) not only looks stunning, but it performs amazingly too. If you are a fan of the original Real Techniques sponge, you’ll love this one as it has so many different sides and facets to use with lots of different products at once.
There are two liquid eyeliner in this round-up – one black and one brown. The new Collection Extreme Bold 24HR Calligraphy Felt Tip Liner* (£2.99 from Boots) has kind of a flat ‘paddle’ tip to allow you to get a sharp thin line or a wide thick line. It is extremely black, which is great and it lasts all day. It has bled into the tiny lines on my hands, but you don’t obviously get this when you use it on your eyelids. I think you’ll be able to pick this one up later this month.
The Pixi by Petra Lash Line Ink in Velvet Cocoa* (£12 from Pixi Beauty) is part of the brand’s new AW16 collection. I really like this as it’s quite a light brown on me so it looks very natural. I’ve been loving this to define my lash line on no mascara days when I want a ‘no makeup makeup’ look. It stays put all day, is waterproof and has a really thin tip so that you can get right into the lash line to draw a precise line.
The final product is also part of Pixi’s AW16 collection. Their Multibalm in Wild Rose* (£12 from Boots) is a really creamy and highly pigmented cream stick that you can wear on both your cheeks and your lips. It contains aloe vera, shea butter and rose hip oil to condition and nourish the skin – especially important in the upcoming cold months. This is such a pretty muted deep pink that I think will suit most people and is perfect for autumn.
Which of these do you like the look of?
