So… I went a bit crazy recently and bought A LOT of makeup! I thought I’d share my new purchases with you guys! If you’re interested please keep reading!
As you can see I went a little mad. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Maybelline Color Tattoos, Revlon Lip Butters, a Sleek Original palette, and a couple of Collection 2000 powders.
I am going to do a swatch post of the Maybelline Color Tattoos as I have all of the ones available in the US and Canada (there are a few differences in the European colours). But I will say that so far, I love them. Laila did a post on a couple of shades of the tattoos which is here. I love the colour range and the texture is quite nice too, though I do prefer the consistency of Benefit Creaseless Creams of which I did a review here.
Another product I bought after a review here was the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, which Nicole reviewed here. I bought it in two shades, one for everyday wear and one for when I’m tan. I love the texture of this foundation but it does not sit well on the dry skin on my nose. Despite this I’m going to keep using it, simply because I love foundation that feels like skin!

I have to say I have become a little addicted to the Revlon Lip Butters. I got them in Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart, Tutti Frutti, Raspberry Pie, Sugar Plum and Red Velvet. I absolutely love these lip butters as they give your lips amazing colour without being too harsh or over the top. The only thing that disappoints me about them is that I actually find them to be a little drying on my lips and also, you barely get any product!
This is how much you get in a lip butter. I have only used this once so it is a good representation. I understand that because the lip butters are so creamy it isn’t very sensible to put a lot of product in the bullet, however I would like more for my money considering it is a drugstore product.
To go with my new Color Tattoos, I decided to buy a palette with colour in it (I do love my neutrals!). I haven’t actually used this palette yet so can’t comment on the quality but if you’d like to see a review I’d be more than happy to provide one!
I absolutely love a bargain and these powders were amazing value! The pressed powder was £1.99 and the loose powder was £2.99. They do have a bit of a ‘granny-perfume’ scent but for the price I can’t argue! They work brilliantly too, I haven’t used my Chanel loose powder in a couple of weeks.
I hope this has been interesting! Let me know if you’d like to see a more in depth review of any of the products.
