Make Up Bag Newbies!

Happy Saturday everyone, I hope you are all out enjoying yourself instead of sitting in like me haha; working fulltime hours seems to have gotten the better of me this week! Just wanted to share a few things I have bought this week with you all! :)

The Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin Curves Mascara was bought earlier in the week on a whim when I discovered that I had like zero mascara left while i wass getting ready for work the other morning. Obviously I had to avoid a total disaster so I happened to run into a small Boots branch before I started my shift. I've actually used this already (well obviously due to my emergency) and so far I quite like it! Its not my favourite mascara in the world, but what I like about it is that it gives my lashes lots of extra volume without weighing them down! The formula is quite wet and very black and the shape of the brush allows you to reach all the little corner lashes you can sometimes miss. Next up is a lovely new MUA Lipstick in Shade 2 which I also bought in a bit of a rush as I was going out for dinner with Lewis one night after work and realized I'd forgotten to pop a nice lippy in my bag (Shock horror!). Its a lovely cross between a muted pink and a berry shade, and even though I normally hate shimmer its so very subtle in this. I like the fact it could be worn on a night out as well as an every day lipstick (I'm currently wearing it to work) and in this sense its extremely versatile. Also for just £1 the formula of these is really long lasting and doesn't dry out the lips whatsoever. I think I will be picking up loads more on payday! The last newbie make up item I bought this week was the L'oreal Lumi Magique Primer which I have been meaning to buy in forever. I haven't had a chance to try this yet but on my hand it looks lovely! It's quite thick and creamy and very pearly so I can only assume its meant to be a radiance boosting primer! I love products like these as sometimes my skin can look really dull and drab so hopefully this will perk it up. I'm also planning on using this as a cream highlighter though so hopefully it will work just as well for that purpose:).

Have any of you used these products before? What did you think of them?


  1. I was looking for that primer the other day and couldn't find it in Boots! Looks really lovely.
