For the last couple of weeks, possibly months, I've barely spent a penny on makeup which is quite strange for me, I used to make a trip to Boots on a weekly basis and take forever browsing through all the beauty aisles, whereas now it's very rare I get to do this. However, after the break of makeup shopping I did make a stop into Boots a few weeks ago with news that a product I had been waiting for to become available in the UK was in stock.
Normally I would go a bit over the top when shopping but this time was different, with Christmas being just weeks away(at the time) I was very strapped for cash after all the gift buying and so I only came away with two products as opposed to the masses of beauty products that I normally would pick up.
The product that I was looking forward to picking up was the Maybelline Blush Nudes Palette. I took a liking to it once I seen it popping up all over my Instagram and I knew I had to have it. Of course the US had it first and it reached the UK shores months later after it's US release. I am pleasantly surprised by this eyeshadow palette, it's super girly with a mix of light and warm nude shades, from a pale pink to a shimmery bronze. I am so so glad I got it. It will undoubtedly be featured on it's own within the coming weeks. It's love. It costs just £9.99 which is inexpensive to me considering the majority of the eyeshadow palettes I own costs £30 upwards.
I absolutely love a good contour and I'm always looking for the next big thing to my favourite Benefit Hoola Bronzer, that's much more budget friendly. I spotted the Collection Contour Kit and was instantly drawn to it. It has a golden highlighter on the left and a slightly matte warm toned contour shade on the right which I love. I haven't given it a try as of yet but I'm looking forward to giving it a go. It's cheap as chips too, priced at £4.19(currently £3.99).
