The New Things

I did warn you that I may be quiet on here for a while. But the end of uni is, now, nearly in sight! In the middle of writing essays I've still be busy with trying some new things and spending some Christmas Vouchers. I always advice saving those vouchers for the gloomy March/April months when you're in the midst of essay writing and exams rather than in the post-Christmas sales. Anywaaaay

We all know my love for Estée Lauder bases so after seeing a few beauty bloggers rave about the new Enlighten Even Effect Skintone corrector I was temped to give it atry. Now, in all honestly, I'm still indifferent to this product. I'm shade one, the lightest of the three shades, but when I apply it I almost can't notice a difference on my skin. It definitely evens out my complexion but so far I haven't recognised the boost I would like from a light-coverage base.

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in the shade Beach Bronze was a little bit of a gamble for me. I hadn't even tried it in store, I just went off Pixiwoo and Tanya's recommendations. However, I'm seriously impressed so far. The staying power is incredible. And the colour has great pigmentation. What's great about this is you can really build it up to create a brown smokey eye. A big thumbs up from me!

After Lily Pebble's post I quickly searched ebay for a Nails Inc Alexa Edit in Winter Lilac. This shade is part of a set but if you're lucky there are quite a few people selling the shades individually on ebay. I've loved wearing this shade for the transitional March weather.  

I picked up one of the new Bourjois Colourband Eye Shadowsticks in the shade Beige Minimalist. This is quickly becoming a new everyday favourite. I'm seriously impressed with how well this lasts on my oily eyelids. My only dislike is its not as creamy consistency as I would like and I do sometimes feel like I'm stabbing my eyelid a little...

Last but not least is a repurchase of my favourite, favourite Nars Creamy Concealer. Is it dramatic to say I don't know where I'd be without this in my makeup bag? Seriously, it's a keeper.
