My favourite highstreet contour powder!

Everyone goes on about how the NYX blush in taupe is a prefect contour powder for pale skin but I've always wondered; what about tan skin? I'm not sure on my MAC colour but for reference I'm guessing I would be around NC37-40? On first impressions I didn't really think this would show up on my skin but when I started using it, it was just perfect! I've been using it now non-stop for about 3 months and I don't think I'll ever turn to anything else ... although I do want to try Illamaasqua's cream pigment in hollow and the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder

The colour of the product is a cool toned brown/taupe. This colour helps to create a more natural looking shadow effect. I usually grab my Real techniques contour brush, swirl it into the pan and apply it in the hollows of my cheeks. Sometimes I even grab a blending brush and use it as a transition colour for my eyeshadow. This could also be used in the brows for a natural looking brow. For £6 you can't go wrong. This is definitely something I will be re-purchasing once I'm out of it (which will probably be very soon).

A lip product haul

Sooo, can we all tell that I went a bit crazy buying lip products? To be 100% honest I wanted to fill up my lipstick holder! Which I totally failed at because the Guerlain lipstick is too big to fit in there! From left to right we have the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. (I thought I may aswell just put this in!) I've been wanting this for the longest time and seeing as Superdrug were doing a 3 for 2 I thought hey why not?! I got the colour 35 which is a pretty decent match for my skin. We then have a Revlon Colourburst Matte balm in the shade Elusive which is a light pink shade. On first impressions, I'm not a huge fan of these! Which really surprised me as I haven't come across one bad review as of yet! I may do a review on these once I do try them out properly. Then I have two Topshop lipsticks, I already own a Matte lipstick from Topshop which I'm not a huge fan of as my dry patches show so I thought I'd try the other formula's they have. I bought the colours Infrared (Velvet) and Straight Ace (Cream). Straight Ace looks pretty similar to MAC's heroine to me which I shall be picking up very soon hopefully! We then have another matte balm in showy which is a bright pink. I then have a super expensive lipstick from Guerlain in the colour 71 Girly. I am loving this so far! & look at that packaging it's amazing. If any of you are beauty addicts that live in Birmingham then you'll know that our selfridges hall has gotten bigger and better with many brands that we couldn't get hold on before hand, One being OCC. I spotted some OCC lip tars at the corner of my eye the other day and had to purchase it! The colour I bought is Psycho, which is a bright orange-red. I finally purchased a YSL rouge volupte shine! I decided to get this rosy nude shade that is perfect for me! It's in the colour number 7, Rose Infinite! A few days after I took this picture a L'Oreal Infallible 24 hr Lip Colour In Flawless Fuchsia arrived on my doorstep which I thought I'd tell you about! I think I'm all lipsticked out now! 

What was the last lip product/s you purchased?
