Primark PS Face Treats

Primark PS Face Treats

My local Primark has had a bit of a makeover recently and because of the revamp, the makeup section has pretty much doubled in size much to my delight.  I've dabbled with some of the makeup before but something completely new to me was their skincare range so I picked up a few masks to try out.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

As a sheer, glossy lipstick loving girl, it's taken me a while to get into the whole matte lipstick trend.  It's not that I haven't tried searching for the right product, more so having not found the perfect matte.  The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have been making their way around the blogosphere lately so I thought it was about time I gave them a go myself.

What's In My Makeup Bag?

What's in my makeup bag: Nars, HD Brows, MAC, Revlon, Benefit, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Make Up For Ever and Rimmel.

It's been quite a while since we shared the contents of our makeup bags so today I thought I'd rummage through to show you the products that I can't live without.  While I may have lipstick changes and occasionally pop on an eyeshadow, these are the products that I rely on and reach for everyday.
