FOTD using some new products

Hey girlies, hope you all had a good day!

Just thought I would post on a couple of the products I bought yesterday since I used them this morning (excuse the slight shiny look...the warm weather caused that!). I was looking at my face this morning thinking that my forehead and cheekbones looked very dark...I was forgetting that is what a natural tan looks like!ha ha. I'm way to used to all over bronzing when I used St Tropez, Dove etc.

In this look I used:

Lancome La Base Pro Primer, Revlon Colourstay Foundation in True Beige, Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder, Lancome Tropique Mineral Bronzer (NEW), Prestige Skin Loving Minerals in Pure Shimmer, Bourjois Liquid Eyeshadow in Beige Mettalique (LOVE this so much - great as a base for so many looks), Famous By Sue Moxley Eyeliner in Amber (NEW), MAC Cream Colour Base in Shell, YSL Rouge Volupte No.1 (NEW), Barry M Shimmering Eye and Lip Pencils (NEW) in 5 (in tearduct) and 3 (along waterline).

OK so here are my thought on the new stuff I used:

Lancome Bronzer - Really like this stuff, I used to be addicted to the Star Bronzer Powder Compact but this is even better, it provides buildable colour, is so so finely milled and really airbrushes my skin. The difference with this powder to the Star Bronzer one is that it doesn't contain any shimmer, which makes it perfect for daytime. Love it!

Eyeliner in Amber, Famous By Sue Moxley - Weird name for a dark brown colour but I really like this...I applied it at 6am this morning and with no reapplication, you can see in the pic that it's very much still there! I like the brown liner coz it creates a softer look to the eyes than black for daytime wear.

YSL Rouge Volupte in No.1 (Nude Beige) - I think I have finally found the HG of nude lips, in my opinion. The formulation is so light and creamy and the colour isn't too beigey or concealer like (that's never a good look!). I really adore this lipstick and it totally lives up to all the hype on the blogs. The only downside is the price and the fact that it may not last that long given that it's so soft...I still love it regardless though!

Barry M Shimmering Eye and Lip Pencils in no.3 and no.5 - I hadn't heard much about these when I got them but I thought I would give them a whirl...and I'm glad I did. The pale pink shade (no.3) is a really good dupe of Benefit Bright Eyes pencil and is great on the waterline to brighten up your eyes. I prefer the pale pink colour as white can sometimes look too fake/harsh.

So in conclusion, I am really chuffed with the stuff I got in my haul and I will be trying more of the products tomorrow...so stay tuned to find out what I think of them...
