Makeup order from boots SmashBox, Soap and Glory, Revlon..

Smashbox contour kit

my favourite part of my make up routine is contouring...
i would love anything that instantly gave me cheek bones and a slimmer face, especially when it comes in such a sleek and light compact, it comes with a brush and a step by step how to guide on how to contour so its perfect if you want to learn too! i just think for the price they could have hooked it up with a bit more product.... but overall it's worth it.

The first powder is a dark shade to create the shadows under the chin, in the hollows of the cheeks, and the sides of the nose.
The second powder is a bronzer to add color to the face and make your cheeks stand out.
The third powder is a highlighter to reflect the light on the parts you want the world to see.

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer

Ive always loved Soap a Glory's bath products but never tried anything from their make up line to be honest id always viewed it as a knock off from Benefit but this concealer is pretty awesome, especially if you have dry skin or a particularly scabby spot (sorry gross i know) its great for touch ups too.

The first step an eye concealer with an ingredient that reduces puffiness under the eyes it is quite creamy which i like because sometimes through lack of sleep from having a baby i rub my eyes and i get dry skin underneath them as well as dark circles so this has really been put to the test.

The second step is a complexion concealer that covers up any redness and it is amazing, what i like to do is apply this on top of the eye concealer for even more coverage but it works on imperfections  and doesn't cling to any dry patches (to set it in i use my loose cover fx setting powder after applying my foundation instead of the one it comes with though)

the third step is a pressed powder which is transparent i tend to use this to touch up any oiliness during the day with the little sponge it comes with and i find this a better way to use it.

Revlon Color Burst lipstick in plum 

A dark lip has been everywhere recently. After i saw James Bond and that girl was wearing that super vampy lipstick it looked so hot i just went ahead and ordered one. I didn't want to spend a lot because in spring that color is not going to be any good to me. This is such a gorgeous deep color and in no way looks to dark or halloweeny, the color comes off strong as well. Its not extremely long lasting but for £5.00 i think i can stand to reapply it. I'm going to buy the baby pink one next.
