I know I’m a beauty blogger but sometimes I go overboard stocking up new products. Base products and eyeshadows are my favourite products to buy so when I ‘nipped’ into Superdrug earlier this week, I couldn’t resist the MUA and Revolution stands.
Ever since I got a sample of the Laura Mercier primer in the limited edition GlossyBox at Christmas, I finally get how important it is underneath my foundation. A couple of months ago I picked up the pro-base primer from MUA so this was a re-purchase. It’s less than a fiver too so it won’t break the bank. It goes on really smoothly and my foundation stay in place all day – even when I apply it at 7 in the morning before work.
The second item I picked up was this pro-base argan plush concealer from MUA. I hadn’t used this before but I’m definitely gonna buy it again. It goes onto the skin really gently and it’s really easy to blend, covering my spots in a jiffy.
It’s all in the detail
When it comes to eye shadows I wear my Naked 2 palette every day, to work and on nights out. But, now I’ve had it since Christmas, I decided to brand out on a couple of new shades to wear during the day. Both of these shadows cost just a quid each and the stand had loads of different shades. I picked up these nude and brown shades. They’re really easy to apply and last all day too.
