No7 Make Up Brushes Range

No7 are really impressing me at the moment! Today I have another great launch from the team. I’m always looking out for affordable and high quality make up brushes as I like to have lots of options for that inevitable day when you realise all of your brushes need to be washed and you have no time! The No7 team have relaunched their make up brush range, including 5 brand new brushes.

And Other Stories Make Up

I had never been into an & Other stories shop or bought anything from there before, so when I was walking past with Aaron at the weekend I knew I had to have a quick peek. A few of their items were on my wish list so I went straight to the make up (of course).

I actually wasn’t planning on getting a blusher but just LOOK AT IT. I am a sucker for clever or pretty packaging, so a Shakespeare quote embossed on the top of a blusher? Done. I chose ‘Satin Magenta’, a very pretty light pink and it was £10 which I think is very reasonable. You can buy it HERE.

The Total Re-Touch pen is marketed as a concealer and highlighter but my under eye circles need something with a bit more oomph than this, so I have been using it as a highlighter only. It is a lovely subtle shimmery highlighter in a click pen (similar to the YSL Touche Eclat one). When I first used it, I thought it was broken as I was clicking for about 5 minutes with no product coming out so be patient on the first use! This was £10. I can’t find this online anymore but hopefully it’s available in store.

I am definitely going to pop back and have a look at some other items (the contouring cream is calling to me…)

Have you tried anything by & Other Stories? What would you recommend?

5 Product Face Challenge

I’m not going to lie when I first contemplated the 5 Product Face Challenge it filled me with fear. I usually have an 8 or 9 (or 10 – 15…) product face so this was always going to be tough. Luckily I was working at home today so my panic was quite short-lived!

So, in order, my 5 product face is as follows:

  • Rimmel ‘Lasting Finish’ foundation.  Base was my obvious first choice as, due to my rosacea, I would never ever consider a make up look without foundation.
  • Collection ‘Lasting Perfection’ concealer. My under eye bags are dreadful and I think concealer under your eyes is one of the easiest way to brighten your whole face.
  • Soap & Glory ‘Archery’ eyebrow pencil. As a blonde with very fair eyebrows I *needed* brow products!
  • Sleek ‘Sweet Cheeks’ blush palette (I used ‘Cupcake’). After covering my rosacea redness, I needed something to put some life back into my cheeks.
  • Rimmel ‘Scandaleyes’ mascara. Again, blonde hair is a curse!

I don’t think this look is too bad for 5 products, but I definitely won’t be making the 5 product face a regular thing. I doubt this would last long without my primer and powder and I miss eyeshadow and lipstick!

What would you choose for your 5 product face?
