New Makeup Products I've Been Loving Recently

Feel Unique & Space NK Haul

| New Makeup Products I've Been Loving Recently! |

Sales and offers are both a blessing and a curse; You save a few pennies but realistically we all probably spend more in the long run during sale season *insert monkey with his hands over his eyes emoji* A few weeks ago one of my favourite online beauty stores Feel Unique were having a 10% off sale and as a self-professed beauty enthusiast I just couldn't resist saving a few pennies on some items I'd been coveting for awhile. The following weekend Space NK was offering double points with every purchase so I decided to avail of the offer and pick up a few bits. I've been putting all of the products to the test for the past few weeks and I thought I'd share how I'm getting on with them....

My first Feel Unique bargain was Benefit Galifornia, a recent launch that I had been eyeing up for a few months. The Benefit box powders are €4 cheaper on Feel Unique than anywhere else but it was great to get an extra 10% off! This blush is definitely worth the hype it's been receiving! Like all Benefit's blushes, the formula is incredible, the beautifully designed packaging is definitely the best we've seen from them and the vibrant pink hue inside is the perfect Summer blush shade. And the sweet delicious scent evokes Summer memories, which is exactly what we need to get us through these cold rainy days we've been having.

Over the past year or so I've developed a love for Clinique skincare products, the Moisture Surge moisturiser {review} and Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm are my daily essentials. Seeing as I love their skincare so much I thought I'd try their makeup and their Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour lipsticks have received high praise over the years. I opted for the shade Peony Pop which is a soft pink hue and even though it has a matte formula it's very comfortable to wear, and the formula doesn't wear down until I eat a meal.

Recently Tanya Burr added a couple of new products to her line and I just couldn't resist the cute embossed pineapples on the new My Paradise Eyeshadow Quad. The quad contains a nice complement of shades including a pretty champagne shade, a coppery shade, a bronzey rose gold shade as well as a matte brown. The formula is excellent for the price and the shadows are easy enough to work with.
The pigmentation isn't the best but I actually think that works well for the target market of the palette. I would say that it's aimed at young girls starting out with makeup as well as more experienced makeup users that want a soft easy everyday look. Because the pigmentation isn't intense you can create a soft neutral look with this palette in a few simple steps, making it a lifesaver for early mornings!

Becca is fast becoming one of my favourite brands and their new Sunlit bronzers were too pretty to resist. As a pale Irish girl, it can be hard to find a warm golden bronzer that doesn't look muddy or straight up orange on my skin. But I've finally found one perfect for me! The lightest shade in the range, Bali Sands is a warm bronzer with subtle golden shimmer particles that provides the perfect sunkissed glow for Summer. 

For my second Space NK purchase, I bought my first Hourglass blush. I've tried the formula of their blushes in the Surreal Light palette {which I love!}  so I decided to finally get a full-size blush! I chose Diffused Heat which is a pretty pink coral shade that provides the most beautiful sheen to the skin. I love the formula of these blushes, they apply beautifully, they make me look so healthy and you can also achieve a subtle wash of colour but you can also build the colour up which is ideal for those of us with pale skin.

Another new Hourglass product I've been loving is the Girl Lip Stylo in the shade 'Seeker'. This rosy pink shade has a creme sheen finish and is formulated with shea butter, jojoba, mimosa and sunflower seed which hydrates the lips and provides a sheen making the lips look plump. Despite the fact that it's a creamy formula, the pigmentation of this particular shade is rich so it lasts fairly well on the lips. I've only ever had to reapply it once during the day so it's a good low maintenance lipstick.
