witch skin clearing primer

Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer £6.99 (*) – This is the first time that I’ve tried a cream formula primer and although it made my skin extra hydrated after each use, I didn’t feel that it held my make up in as well as other primers. It contains natural anti bacterial actives that prepare the skin for foundation and prevents blemishes from appearing, however, throughout the trial period, I did get some spots and I just don’t feel that it created a smooth base at all.

rimmel lipstick in glam plum fulham

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Glam Plum Fulham £6.49 – Mentioned previously in one of my favourites video, I have recently reignited the flame for this dark, berry red. The formula is very soft and moisturising, hence the title of the lipstick and gives a lovely, smooth finish. The colour is nicely pigmented and lasts a good amount of hours with minimal touch ups.

mark hill heat protecting spray

Mark Hill Get Gorgeous! Work It Girl! Shine, Protect and Control Spray £3.99 (*) – Being an avid straighteners fan, I find myself trying out numerous heat protecting sprays and the most recent one that I tried and absolutely loved is this one from Mark Hill. It protects and adds extra shine to my hair without making it feel heavy. 

mua brow kit

MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit £3.50 – I spotted this eyebrow kit on a random trip to Superdrug and thought it looked pretty decent, so I’ll give it a go. I have previously enjoyed using a number of MUA products, but this was a real let down. The powder didn’t transfer well at all and the brush it came with was pretty awful. When I managed to even out the powder with another brush, it did look okay, but wore off after an hour, so a bit of a disappointment on this occasion.

elemis salt glow

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow – £36.50 (*) – Frangipani is my favourite scent from Elemis. I love the body oil which is a great moisturiser by the way and when the salt glow was released, I was literally over the moon. I use this in the bath and apply oil after towelling dry and my skin is literally in heaven! The scent lingers on my skin, my clothes and even on my bedsheets, so if you’re an Elemis Frangipani fan, this is definitely for you.

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know your thoughts.

    I love the Elemis frangipani scent, so that scrub sounds perfect! I am obsessed with the body oil, it's one of my favourite treats for a relaxing evening. x

    I really admire your honesty here with products, I love witch products usually but doubt I'll bother with the primer now.

    That dark red (glam plum) lipstick is gorgeous with your complexion, envious as it wouldn't suit me lol!

    How disappointing about the brow kit, I usually rate MUA but even looking at the image it doesn't look great. I do like Sleek's brow kit though in terms of budget ones 🙂

      Oooh, I'll give that one a try, thank you for the recommendation. xx
