This Month in my Beauty Bag: January

Clockwise from top left: elf blush "Pink Passion"; Maybelline Color Whisper "Petal Rebel"; Essence Stay All Day long lasting eyeshadow "Glammy Goes To…"; Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner; L'Oreal True Match foundation shade W3 Golden Beige; Bourjois Bronzing Primer; Essence Lash Mania Reloaded false lash mascara.

After the expensive gift giving season, January is the perfect time to discover more affordable makeup products. Summer is also in full swing and I really like fresh and pretty makeup at this time of year.

A new discovery of mine is the L'Oreal True Match foundation. I'm a little late on the bandwagon but this foundation gives a really flawless coverage without feeling heavy or looking cakey on the skin. I find this foundation is best when buffed in to the skin. For a pretty eye look try using the Essence Stay All Day creme eyeshadow, with winged liner and long flirty lashes. Use Maybelline's Hyper Glossy liquid liner and Essence Lash Mania Reloaded mascara to achieve this look.

For a dewy, bronzed base the Bourjois Bronzing Primer is perfect. It gives a really nice amount of colour and has a velvety smooth texture. For a pretty pop of pink, I love the e.l.f. blush in Pink Passion and the Maybelline Color Whisper in Petal Rebel. I much prefer the texture of the Color Whisper products than the Revlon Lip Butters.

What affordable/drugstore/high street makeup products do you love?

  8. I love that lipstick! I have one of the Maybelline Whispers in a dark red shade, but I don't find it very flattering on me so I end up never wearing it. I think it's time I look at the other shades! Lovely post.

    1. That's a shame! They're definitely a formula that's easy to wear and comfortable on the lips - my kind of formula! You should definitely check some of the other shades out x x

  10. Ahh I really want to try the Maybelline Colour Whispers, as I love the Revlon Lip Butters, but I don't think they're available in the UK yet! So sad! What's the colour range like? xx

    1. I'm sure they will come out in the UK soon! I doubt that we have the full colour range in Australia but there are some nice colours to choose from. I own 2 - Petal Rebel & Lush for Blush. Both are really nice colours. I will definitely pick up some more once I finish some other lip products up xx
