High Street Makeup

During my Christmas shopping, I picked up a few things for myself of course. Got to remember poor little me! 
I have been wanting a few things recently but haven't had the time to go to Boots and walk around the isles looking for something.
But this week I did.

Rimmel Salon Pro with Lycra in Barmy Blue

Now I wouldn't have normally gone for this colour, but I have purchased a gorgeous blue top for my christmas party and haven't had the time to have my nails done so I thought i'd try and match the colour myself. This is actually the first time I have used a nail varnish from this collection and I have to say, I am impressed. The brush is wide enough to get my whole nail covered in one go, which is so convenient and effortless. the colour is thick and opaque and I have only needed one coat. I will definitely be buying more nail varnishes from this collection! Let me know if you have ever tried them.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Pink Petal

I have been looking for the perfect colour lip liner for a long time as I am not a huge fan of lipstick. So I have one shade that is very natural with a slight tinge or brown and purple which I think suits me best. So when I picked this up I was very excited to think I had eventually found it! I will admit that I was a little annoyed about this one. A lip liner is supposed to line your lips, but you can't tell where it is on the skin because the colour is not strong enough. I know I like natural colours but this was a bit to natural for my liking. I felt like there wasn't much point at all in having it on. 

Bourjois 'Rouge Edition' Lipstik 02

I absolutely love this lipstick. I am so happy with the colour as it is lovely and simple, but not too boring. It just gives that slight edge. It is lovely and creamy and goes on so well! I will recommend this to anyone who doesn't bright red lips or dark, dark lips. It's just right. 

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser 

I really like this product as sometimes I like to give my skin a break from foundation when i'm at work or sat around the house. This is really lightweight, which I think is great because I absolutely hate feeling heavy makeup on my face. So sometimes I wear it on its own, it evens my red blotches out and actually smooths the appearance of my skin. It is also great to wear under makeup as well almost as a primer. it feels great and doesn't have any funny smells to it.

Let me know what your favourite high street brands and products are, I would love to know!
