New beauty & skincare additions

Saturday, 21 July 2018

I've recently added a few new beauty and skincare products to my daily routine and I thought I'd share them with you. My make-up bag and skincare stash are looking mighty fine at the moment, really pleased with the products I'm buying and using (for once). Hurrah!


This Continuous Setting Mist by Morphe really does have the finest mist I've ever seen. Doesn't spit on your face like some other aggressive setting sprays do, it just feels like fine rain on your skin. Makes your make-up stay decently put *all day. I think the Urban Decay All Nighter is sliiiiightly better, but I don't want to be forking out £25 every time it runs out (I have tried the 30ml bottle but that alone is £10 and runs out really quickly). This Morphe one is a great alternative.

* I don't wear my make-up 'all day' - usually max 6 hours - but works well for that period of time.


Recently bought the Graphic Brow Fix gel and the Graphic Brows pencil by Zoeva (both in the shade Arsenic) and I love how cool-toned they are. I have dirty blonde hair naturally and it is very cool toned, but not many brow products on the high street cater to the cool side. I did a lot of Googling about these products to make sure they were 1) light enough, 2) cool enough before I ordered them, and thankfully, after trying them out for myself, they are. Anyone else struggling for cool-toned brown/dark blonde shades I'd recommend these.


I love a cream blush. I came across this one from Maybelline that is in their famous Dream Matte formula. I got the shade Flirty Pink which is soft, natural, and will suit most skin tones. The texture is gorgeous - I apply this with the butt of an egg-shaped make-up sponge but you can use a brush or your fingers. I find it's similar in appearance to Glossier's Cloud Paint (which I also love).


I received this Floral Water Make-up Remover by Klorane in July's Birchbox. It is a gorgeous micellar water and smells like summer in a bottle. It works beautifully, feels refreshing, and a lot goes a long way. It doesn't dry your face out either. Tempted to buy the full size one once my Vichy one has run out.

That's all, folks!
